The families clap as the jury leave the Hillsborough inquests in Warrington. One woman shouts: “God bless the jury.”
There are lots of tears as lawyers are hugging the families and the shadow home secretary Andy Burnham is hugging the families in court.
There are lawyers crying…. People are saying they can’t take in the enormity of it all.
A spontaneous chorus of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” is being sung outside the courtroom as people raise Liverpool flags above their heads.
Hillsborough inquests: Fans unlawfully killed, jury concludes (BBC)
I think this might be the first time in my life where I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s issue of The Sun.
No doubt they’ll cast themselves as heroes who were actually championing the people all along, or they just won’t mention it.
Yeah the billionaire owned ‘champion’ of the people.
Do their readers know that they are being manipulated day in day out by people who hate them.
Justice at last, wonderful for the families to see those who died exonerated.
RIP to those who died. Justice took far too long for their families.
The Guardian published an excellent video that gives a breakdown of the disaster, the cover-up, and the initial inquiries all the way through to today’s verdict. Well worth a watch, perhaps you could embed it in this story Broadsheet?
David Conn’s exhaustive coverage of the campaign in The Guardian has been exemplary throughout all this. The kind of journalism (and not just sports journalism) that should be taught to budding cub reporters in university.
Yep, just read this excellent piece of his: http://www.theguardian.com/football/2016/apr/26/hillsborough-disaster-deadly-mistakes-and-lies-that-lasted-decades
You can’t teach journalism at university.
All media courses do is teach people to sit in an office and re-write press release under the guise of reporting.
I hope thatcher is burning in the 7th circle of hell, her support for the officers who covered it up was disgusting
May she rust in hell.
She has privatised the third and fourth rings of hell and put the devil on a 3-day week.
Have any police officers been charged in relation to Hillsborough ?
If not,then Lady Thatcher was merely applying the criminal justice laws which prove that everyone is innocent until proved guilty.
To suggest Liverpool fans were entirely blameless for this tragedy is a nonsense but entirely in keeping with that city’s craven displays of entitlement over the years.
The fans are and were entirely blameless. Perhaps have another read of the inquest verdicts again.
everyone is innocent until proved guilty.
To suggest Liverpool fans were entirely blameless for this tragedy is a nonsense
So, not everyone is innocent until proved guilty?
Fupp off you excrement filled troll.
LOL at Charger Salmons, using ‘Lady’ anything on an Irish forum.
Defender of the Tories, hater of workers without whom the Tories wouldn’t exist.
charger: your some dirtba-.
T’would still break yer heart all over again.
BTW, Charger. You’re one prize Cúnt
Please don’t edit this BS.
What a waste of an education.
Smarter people swear more often
As if profanity is more violent than Thatcherism.
Lady Thatcher was the longest-serving Prime Minister of the 20th Century and was elected three times,with a great many Paddies resident in Ireland voting for her too.
She was box office.
Ireland,of course,let Charlie Haughey lead them with a ring through its nose.
Resident in England,of course,but I’m sure they would have done if they could.
Great parties when she died too
Thirded. And I hate that club.
I always find when people resort to abuse the paucity of their argument is laid bare.
And to go to the trouble of changing the spelling to get it past Broadsheet’s filters is really rather juvenile.
Sometimes I wonder how these people even manage to type using their knuckles.
Didn’t Sam lay the paucity of your own argument bare above?
Found the editor of The Sun.
Excellent trolling. We know you’re just an average chap in an insurance company who never made the actuarial exams but still have notions all the same.
I’m glad the families can maybe get some closure. Awful awful for them though, some of the stories would break your heart.
Particularly the parents who have died without seeing justice finally served.
Oof, too right
I flew from Glasgow this Morning and there was people giving away free copies of the scum.they were dumped everywhere
At 1.7million copies sold a day The Sun remains the UK’s biggest selling daily newspaper,a couple of hundred thousand ahead of another fine organ The Daily Mail.
Interestingly,The Irish Sun sells a healthy 58,000 copes and is not far behind that desperately dull and partisan Irish Times.
And all four Irish editions of UK tabloids put together sell more than any other Irish paper.
A small cylindrical object that can be filled with money or drugs and inserted into the anus to conceal their whereabouts from the police/prison guards etc. As described in the classic French book ”Papillon”.
