Hillsborough 1989: accidental death?

Hillsborough Stadium, Sheffield, 15th. April 1989
Nottigham Forest : Liverpool

96 Liverpool supporters died, crushed against the fence and barriers at the Leppings Lane end of the ground. Entry to the ground was allowed to proceed uncontrolled.

Police chiefs in charge of controlling entry to the ground remained unaccredited with blame for the deaths. They described the Liverpool people as hooligans and drunks, accusing them among other things of urinating on the dead.

The Prime Minister at the time was satisfied with 96 counts of accidental death.

Today begins the inquest into what really happened. Let us hope we hear the truth on this occasion.

Tony Benn 1925-2014

left to left: Wilson, Callaghan and Benn
Labour Party Conference, 1971

I just sent an e-mail to a friend...

It is a pity that he never became Prime Minister. The UK would now be a
very different and fair a place. I suffered the regime there from 1980.
By 1985 I had had enough. The rot had well and truly begun. The thick
rich were all on their way to their first million. With full government
backing, the poor got poorer. Money became everything. I left. For the
first time in my life, I stood a chance.

...courage and hope.
