Today is being called Truth Day for the relatives of the 96 people who died at Hillsborough in 1989, as
a report with previously unseen goverment papers is released.

Will it be Truth Day?

I have to say, I never thought I'd see the day. The truth at last. Evidence that 41 people could have been saved. Staggering.

Anyone who went to football then knows fans were treated like a lower form of life and if you were a travellling fan then it was worse still. The knee jerk "fans fault" boiled my piss that day and it is a disgrace that it takes til now before any kind genuine truth and apology. God bless all those who had to campaign for this, who lost family and friends, and God bless all those who were killed that day.

South Yorkshire Police.....well no surprises there, Maggie Thatcher's bully boys.

The familes were right - for once I think Mr Cameron speaks the truth

Remember being in a pub in Watford with friends. There was Saturday afternoon footy on the telly and I remember the news coming on and the scenes on the TV. And gradually the pub fell silent, in the end you could've heard a pin drop, except for, a bit later, an old boy at the bar who started crying.

This is the best comment I've read about it:

Never have bought the Sun ever. They were filth then and they're the same now. No good Kelvin McKenzie apologising. He's a bastard. x

Emotional scenes from Liverpool today.........I'm staggered at the extent of the whole cover up and the smear campaign.We knew there was one but i never realised to what extent...testing the blood for alcohol levels of the dead,including children,and checking their crimial records hoping for football related charges....sickening.
Mistakes happen and can be forgiven when the guilty own up and apologise with genuine remorse.There are a lot of guilty people involved who've had 23 years to own up to their mistakes and have kept silent.It seems it's too late now for credible apologies but not too late for criminal charges.

Yes, I think it's the sheer scale of the cover up that is so shocking and the fact that it's taken 23 years and the sheer determination of the families to get to this stage. I cannot imagine the hell they must have been through.

It's been a long time coming and it was obvious about the lies that were being told at the time. I hope this brings some peace to the families of the victims of the tragedy.

I think they will. The total disregard for decency and truth is out in the open now. Heads will roll but it is too bloody late. I cannot believe it has taken this long. Thank god the relatives of those who died kept going and fighting. But they shouldn't have had to fight. The whole cover up and blame being put on the fans who died is despicable. It is a tragedy of epic proportions.

SYP and Kelvin McKenzie hang your heads in shame!

God bless all those who kept on keeping on.

RIP all those who tragically died that day x
