Top marks for our Andy!
Good to see and hear. A politician with a soul.

I think we need to take his gratitude to Theresa May with a pinch of salt though.
He needed to say that. He needs to keep her on our side because the struggle continues.
No Home Secretary could ignore the wave of justice that had built up over 27 years. She was just 'fortunate' to be in office at the time.
If you look at her other views and policies you will see how vile she is. She actually reminds me of Maggie, but enough said of that here.

As much as Andy reminds me of us, she reminds me of a blinkered view of humanity.

I've got a lot of time for Jeremy Corbyn, but THAT'S what a Labour leader looks like. Good on you, Andy, one of the few politicians I have complete faith in to keep his word.

Superb on QT, too.

Brilliant on QT and it was good to see the anger of people that may not be anything to do with football and from another part of the country. I was so pleased to see the genuine anger from those people who prior to the last two years were probably not well informed about what happened
Rafa Benitez: "I'll always keep in my heart the good times I've had here, the strong and loyal support of the fans in the tough times and the love from Liverpool. I have no words to thank you enough for all these years and I am very proud to say that I was your manager. Thank you so much once more and always remember: You'll never walk alone."

Made me cry all over again and made me think how happy Tracy would have been.

Miss you Tracy more and more every day xxx

There have been several Home Secretary's who have ignored the facts and truths which were there all along.

Jack Straw in 1998 after the alteration of all those police statements was brought to his notice by Phil Scratons work yet he simply ignored them.

May was definitely not like Thatcher over this. It's now in the open that she was not happy when Douglas Hurd said Peter Wright would have to resign when he read the Taylor Report just before publication. Wright remained in office.

I will criticise May over other things but not this.

I can't praise Andy enough and he continued his heart felt words on Question Time on Thursday.
We are so fortunate to have got another great manager. We had a great manager in Rafa and collectively we fucked it up. If we'd all stood behind him there's no way the club would have found it so easy to sack him. So please, let's not fuck it up again.

Burham could easily be the next Labour leader.  Corbyn has so limited appeal

Incredible speech! Spoke straight from the heart and highlighted so many important things that really need to be said.

Nail on the head - Well in Andy

I am no fan of the Tories, and particularly the 'Eton mess' that is the enclosed power between all Cameron's mates (of which May is excluded from and any attempt for her to take leadership will be thwarted by inner-government back stabbings).

But she more than any other useless and demeaning Tory was in close contact with the families throughout the inquest. She helped massively, and if it had been handed over to one of 'Call Me Dave's mates (like Osborne or Jeremy C*nt or whoever) then I'm not so sure the families would have received the support needed.

In fact, I have the belief that Cameron and co would have rather this was all swept under the carpet rather than implicate his dear Maggie.

I'm sure he would have done, but he had no choice in the matter, they are all a bunch of *****.
