The Daily Mail has been forced to issue a correction for a column by justice secretary Chris Grayling, which claimed that some European Court of Human Rights judges are not “legally qualified”: “These are not great principles of human rights. They are decisions taken by a Court, made up of people who are not by any means […]
Scrapbook may be late to the party — but is this not surely one of the best Daily Mail corrections ev-vur? A comment article on 13 August about the European Court of Human Rights said that the supply of heroin and gay porn to prisoners was now a ‘right’. We are happy to clarify that […]
The Daily Mail have been forced to retract claims made about flights and buses being “fully booked” with economic migrants from Romania and Bulgaria.
