According to the document, leaked to the BBC, chief constable Sir Kenneth Oxford told the adviser: ‘A key factor in causing the disaster was the fact that large numbers of Liverpool fans had turned up without ticketsAn unquestionable fact? It doesn't seem to have been challenged.
This was getting lost sight of in attempts to blame the police, the football authorities, etc.’
Another – unnamed – officer was said to have directly blamed the supporters.First-hand account of the scene?
‘One officer, born and bred in Liverpool, said that he was deeply ashamed to say that it was drunken Liverpool fans who had caused this disaster, just as they had caused the deaths at Heysel,’ the note said.
We won’t concern ourselves with all that, though. After all, there’s VICTIMHOOD! to claim:
Sheila Coleman of the Hillsborough Justice Campaign said she was disgusted but not surprised at the views expressed by the police.What ‘race’ are Liverpudlians, then?
‘Those of us who were around Liverpool in the 1980s are well aware of Ken Oxford’s racist and bigoted views, Presumably he recruited senior officers with a similar mindset,’ she told the programme.
Answers on a postcard, please, as well as where they stand in ‘Victimhood Poker’…
