Even the Mail admitted it wasn't a million

As a post-script to the completely untrue Mail and Sun story about a million failed asylum seekers getting free NHS treatment, a search of the Mail archives finds an interesting article from just over a year ago.

It is a report on the legal test case that helped lead to a rethink of the rules. And what did it conclude?

More than 11,000 failed asylum seekers could win right to free NHS care.

11,000? That's not a million. What a surprise.

(That story also includes the curious term 'failed refugees', which means absolutely nothing.)
