Just wanted to acknowledge what happened yesterday, and hope you dont mind me using this page to do it. It is very good to see that the truth is finally in the public domain, good that so many apologies are being issued, and I DO think that Mr Cameron's apology was full and genuine, though bad to see the number of people/organisations etc, only NOW issuing apologies, when they should never have doubted and besmirched the names of the innocent dead, the fans and the people of Merseyside in the first place, (the S@N for example), and good to see that Evertonions are first and foremost Liverpudlians and compassionate human beings, our brothers and sisters in football, and with dignity and grace, good on them. Good to see that in the end, the love they made really did equal the love they took.
Of course you can use this forum to acknowledge this historic and long overdue event. People shouldn't die at a football match. Authorities should not lie in order to cover up their mistakes and incompetence that directly lead to the death of 96 innocent people. For 23 years the nastiest of lies have been told about that day and an attempt to discredit a city.
The 23 years of victims families fighting for justice has led to other people around the country referring to them as 'moaning scoucers' or saying 'why don't they just let it rest now'. I hope these people feel ashamed and sickened of themselves. At what point should you leave it alone when your child or loved one dies in such a manner? If it where there child would they have bothered fighting for them.
I hope serious punishment awaits those evil bastards who conspired and contributed to the death of the 96.
I totally agree with you guys and although I'm not much of a conspiracy theorist, it does make me wonder just how far up the ladder the cover up went. Did Thatcher know the truth? And why didn't Jack Straw open an enquiry when he had the chance - did he consider it a can of worms too big to open?
And if Boris Johnson ever runs for the job of Prime Minister (and he will!) he should be reminded of the offensive comments he made as editor of The Spectator in 2004, in which he said that the reaction to Ken Bigley’s murder in Iraq had given rise to “mawkish sentimentality” in Liverpool.
The editorial went on to say: "(Liverpudlians) see themselves whenever possible as victims, and resent their victim status; yet at the same time they wallow in it." And making reference to the Hillsborough tragedy, it said that the city of Liverpool failed to acknowledge "the part played in the disaster by drunken fans at the back of the crowd who mindlessly tried to fight their way into the ground. The police became a convenient scapegoat, and the Sun newspaper a whipping-boy for daring, albeit in a tasteless fashion, to hint at the wider causes of the incident."
