Second e-petition hits 100K: Calls for Hillsborough docs

Rentaguru

as I said

Those reports were based on leaks from SYP which were designed to provide cover for the fact a number of police had been boasting about what they had stolen from the dead and injured.

As to whether the sometime Chief Constable of Merseyside and current chief constable of West Yorkshire* was the person who leaked I don't know but I do know he was consulted about whether to shred the evidence withheld from the first enquiry by the SYP solicitors.

Some blame goes to the Sun for publishing the reports but it was police doing the nickage and the police covering up that and the rest of the mess.

*who incidently annoys me by claiming to the oxford educated when he took his first degree at Sheffield Poly and only took some poxy unfailable civil service masters (designed to make sure the peasants at least know how to hold a knife and fork) at Oxford.

nothing to hide

...how about (this is an example of the stuff not presented to the enquiry) reports of overheard canteen boasts by some plod about what they'd liberated from the dead and injured. Apparantly this sort of minor nickage from accident victims and suspects is looked on as part of flatfoots bonus structure (I think there was a recent case of items appearing on ebay shortly after a raid on some drug suspect).

Now I'm not saying the Sun is a respectable newspaper but I believe that their story about Liverpool fans nicking from the dead was based on a leak from SYP after they'd heard about the boasts floating around in the canteen from their own coppers.

That's not possible

All the documents not actually presented to the first enquiry were shredded by the solicitors (after consulting the current chief constable of west yorkshire) when the enquiry into the enquiry was launched by Jack Straw - this was so as not to confuse the enquiry by exposing it to materials not seen by the original enquiry.

Death haunts government petitions site

Rentaguru
WTF?

Don't I recall

That in the days before Guido left some Hull college without troubling the examiners he tried to persuade the college conservatives make common cause with the BNP .... so why the heck are you surprised he is a bloodthirsty hang'em and flog'em merchant (not that I'm saying he's like Max Mosley in his extra-ciricular activities)

All epetitions prove

is that democracy is a stupid idea if the voters are utter morons. Having said that being stupid enough to let people who want to be MPs do the job is an even worse idea, personally my view of politicians is that the only good ones are the dead ones.

If I recall

They suspended fracking at Presse Hall on the Flyde coast because of there were some surprisingly coincidental earthquakes in Blackpool.

Has UK gov lost the census to Lulzsec?

Rentaguru

all very well

but it isn't stringing politicians and police from lamp-posts is it? Until that happens it isn't significant imho.

Earth may be headed into a mini Ice Age within a decade

amazing

if the comments on here are a true reflection of the intelligence of a self-selected top slice of humanity then the sooner we wipe ourselves out to make space for a species that can grasp that somethings aren't simple.

Thumb Down

it looks a bit foolish

with so many being from just two authors - Niven and Banks.

Niven writes nothing but kids stuff and the Banks nominations are basically Culture 1 to (the two latest rubbish ones that spoil the whole series ..... bit like stars wars really!).

Could we have a poll for the Sci-fi film that completely ruined the book ..... although to be honest that would just be one huge tie of every sci-fi book made into a film.

That rises the question of why anyone would want to ruin a good book by making it into a film (rival author spring to mind but that's all*).

*oh and people whose lips move when they read.
