The offending article: Has The Sun’s senior political reporter Kevin Schofield been reprimanded for it?

‘News’ paper The Sun has had to admit that a claim the EU said 600,000 benefit tourists visiting the UK are “not a problem” was not true.

The paper had to admit that there is no evidence that the EU said it was “not a problem”.

The paper also had to admit that there is no evidence to show that 600,000 benefit tourists have visited the UK.

Here’s the apology:

The story was a complete lie. One wonders whether the reporter, Kevin Schofield, will receive any admonishment for it. And will it stop him writing lies in the future?

For This Writer, the admission is welcome. The Sun was among the right-wing newspapers that libelled me as a Holocaust denier last month.

I’m still waiting for the apology over that particular howler.

After this, I’ll be waiting optimistically.
