Agent Provocateur

Three uses of the term Agent Provocateur for you to consider.

Incorrect usage

Derek Pringle's article in the Telegraph, which was widely quoted in the worldwide sports press, claims Duncan Fletcher acted as an agent provocateur in the Pakistan cricket ball tampering incident.

Denied usage

Detective Sergeant John Pickersgill categorically denies he was acting as an agent provocateur in an incident photographed in Parliament Square. Det Sgt Pickersgill was attached to S012, the Special Branch Section at New Scotland Yard responsible for holding intelligence on extremist bodies.

Active usage

Kerron Cross demonstrates the correct usage in a jokey article about Tony Blair on his blog.
