Hillsborough – lest we forget
In transit from Europe to London
25th anniversary. 96 lives. What does one say on such a day – that they should be here today? That their families should have had more answers, much earlier? That ‘accidental death’ was such a nonsense verdict that it should never have been heard? What could possibly count as a tribute – a minute’s silence? A year’s? 96 flowers on seats? Or candles? Or better yet, an increased and concerted effort on the part of all, to ensure that no such ‘accidents’ ever happen again. As soon as the new inquests finish – and they should hopefully enable everyone to move on with increased confidence that justice and accountability still have a meaning.
