Kelvin MacKenzie says he’s a victim of Hillsborough

by | 26th, September 2012

KELVIN MacKenzie is a victim of Hillsborough. The stammering apologiser who as Sun editor created the infamous “THE TRUTH” headline that stated as fact Liverpool fans had been complicit in their own deaths, writes in the Spectator:

“Now I know – you know, we all know – that the fans were right. But it took 23 years, two inquiries, one inquest and research into 400,000 documents, many of which were kept secret under the 30-year no-publication rule, to discover there was a vast cover-up by South Yorkshire Police about the disaster. Where does that leave me?”

Because Kelvin likes to weigh up all the evidence before declaring what the truth is.

We knew it a while back. Only a fool or a bastard failed to see it. MacKenzie adds:

“Liverpool fans didn’t turn on other media, only the Sun. That has always puzzled me. Was it picked out because the paper had always backed Thatcher, while the city had always been pro-Labour?”

Because you said it was THE TRUTH. You stated that fans had urinated on the dead. You said that fans had robbed from the dead. You called it THE TRUTH.
