The Lesson of Hillsborough

As might well be expected, the official report into the Hillsborough disaster has revealed the South Yorkshire Police to be massively corrupt and engaged in a massive coverup.

As might well be expected, the twitterati are fulminating with wrath, spouting with calls for heads on pikes and all the usual shit. Especially lefties.

As might well be expected, these exact same people will then be the ones telling me that civilisation cannot exist without the state and is minions and that the police have to be funded from tax extortion to protect us all fully.

The lesson of Hillsborough is not what you might expect.

The lesson of Hillsborough is that even after being clubbed in the face with clear proof that the state is not to be trusted, people will still defer to the state and tell me that I'm the crazy one for wanting to do things differently.

Don't they just tell you you're the crazy one?

It's also instructive to observe how desperate the attempts have been to scour the material for any mention of the word "Thatcher" and use it to demonstrate how the evil witch caused it all.

South Yorkshire Police? Same crowd, same era, that tried to stitch me up for "Drunk in Charge"; 4 coppers and a sergeant lied to the beak but so badly that I won.

You could probably list plenty of private companies that cannot be trusted either and who have done huge coverups!

And yet according to one Mr Whip, the police are just plebs. Plebs?????

Given that Lefties, especially in the 1980's, hated football as competitive sport that encouraged white, working-class racist males to gather in public places and offend minorities etc. And might explain why Labour were so reluctant to uncover this whilst in office and despite it being so close to one of their heartland areas. Labour like slavish, white working class votes, just not the voteers themselves.

Cunts.

Many forces. One attitude.

"4 coppers and a sergeant lied to the beak but so badly that I won."

You were lucky, banned. Such wins are forestalled by Huddersfield (Masonic) Magistrates. The Fire Alarms are activated at the first sign of conflicting police evidence. A brief evacuation usually provides sufficient time for further conferring, statement comparisons, corrections and any necessary witness 'management'.

I find it a bit odd that high up police man who were neither there or had anything to do with the plebgate incident, keep on using it for political gain. Then you remember that the police have lied and mislead as well, especially when it comes to the deaths of 96 people at Hillsborough.
