    Finally, the truth...?

    Police commander in charge on the day of the Hillsborough disaster admits his failure to close tunnel directly caused the deaths of 96 people.

    Does this admission explain the police 'cover up' in the aftermath of Hillsborough?
    _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
    _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
    _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
    _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

      Looks like it Dave.

      A schoolboy error for someone so highly ranked which,whilst disastrous and frankly unforgiveable,is somewhat trumped by the scale of the actual police cover up.

      Everyone involved in that should be named,shamed and jailed imo.

        The failings of an individual put into a critical role for which he was so ill equipped are almost forgivable. He had no training, no experience and was catastrophically let down by those around him. However, what is unforgivable is the police cover up that ensued and the intervening period of 26 years during which he has has untold opportunities to accept responsibility and accountability for his failings and those of his organisation.

        That he has finally done so does him some small credit.

        We shall see what else comes out of the inquests.

        And still don't buy the Sun.
