The Hillsborough verdict – ‘justice’ is harder to achieve

After over a quarter of a century of lies, cover-up and obfuscation, what really happened at the Hillsborough Disaster, and who was really to blame for the deaths of 96 innocent people, has finally come to light. The truth of the matter has been self-evident since 1989 to anyone who took the time and trouble to bother taking a look at the facts, but a collusion of right-wing press and government has ensured that anybody in the public who decides what’s true simply from looking at column inches in the red tops has happily derived their opinion from the woefully misinformed or deliberately deceitful.
