I had a shag (and no it wasn’t my birthday), got blootered, and a lot of people died
It was a special day because me and the missus got married in the morning, then moved on to a hotel for a meal and a bevy with family and friends. Mid-afternoon, my sister and brother in law offered to look after the kids for a couple of hours while me and Anita nipped home to take the dogs out for a walk, consummate our marriage before we were both to drunk to do so, then get changed and rejoin the party later at the club down the road
Around the time we were at it like rabbits (I was a lot younger then, remember) . . . 96 Liverpool football fans were being crushed to death at Hillsborough. Inevitably there were investigations and inquiries into the cause(s) of the tragedy and the lessons to be learned to prevent a similar event happening again. The ‘official’ view pinned much of the blame for the tragedy on the behaviour of the fans themselves – though families of the victims and some of their supporters disputed this. Now, thousands of official documents made public for the 1st time yesterday, vindicate their stance – pointing to deliberate falsification of police reports aimed at minimising their role in the tragedy and seeking to shift the blame on to the victims themselves.
While the UK Prime Minister, David Cameron, has apologized to the victim’s families, the families deserve more than an apology. Those responsible for hiding the truth need to be held accountable and charged !
