"An opinion piece (Brexiters don’t mind freedom of movement –as long as you’re rich enough to pay for it - 31 January 2018, Zoe Williams) contained a number of inaccuracies. Christopher Chandler is not a Brexiter. Mr. Chandler’s application for Maltese citizenship was made before the Brexit process was commenced and was not motivated by the “leave” outcome of the EU membership referendum. The suggestion that Mr. Chandler is a hypocrite over Brexit was unjustified, and we are happy to apologise and set the record straight."

The apology can be viewed here, on the Guardian website.
