For more insightful articles on the re-trial, the events since the verdict announcement, and the effect, the work of these two fine journalists - and gentlemen - are worth reading:-

These two articles, in case anyone missed these yesterday... as someone else on here stated, are 'essential reading' (there are more articles linked here in the last few pages)...

For Steve Kelly, top lad, best blue in the world, who has fought every step of the way for justice for his brother Michael. Steve has told me some harrowing stories of the trip to Hillsborough to find/identity his brother. Heartbreaking stuff. Chin up lad.

For Steve Kelly

When the whistle blew at 6 minutes past 3.
'Hillsborough' stole my life from me.
My brother Michael was not coming home.
A long journey begun, that I begun alone.
Now 30 years have passed on the clock.
And nobody held accountable in the dock.
But my brother's killing was against the law.
So that Justice I sought, I'm still looking for.
I have seen faces grow tired over the years.
Faced with injustice, with lies and smears.
The Sun tarnished our name, and our dead.
Duckenfield lied, we played our part he said.
I lost our Michael, they robbed his youth.
Not to worry Kidda, the world knows the truth.

David Conn: Guardian reporter - https://twitter.com/david_conn/status/1200722609874309121

'Hillsborough: A maddening passage for families at the trial came when David Duckenfield's QC effectively cited the Taylor Report as evidence he should be cleared; he said that as a safety overhaul was recommended, the disaster could not have been the fault of one man.

The jury at this trial was not told the conclusions of previous inquiries & proceedings, as that's how our legal system works; so they did not know the 2016 inquests verdict, that the 96 people were unlawfully killed due to  David Duckenfield's gross negligence manslaughter.

But Duckenfield's QC effectively cited the 2nd Taylor Report, which recommended all-seating. Yet jury wasn't told about Taylor's actual report into the disaster. In that he strongly criticised Duckenfield, & said failure to close the tunnel was "a blunder of the first magnitude."

So the jury was effectively told the Taylor report(s) cleared Duckenfield, by blaming lack of safety at football grounds, when in fact Taylor was indeed appalled by the lack of safety at grounds incl Hillsborough, but still strongly criticised Duckenfield's actions on the day.

I covered the trial and retrial for @guardian, and tried to ask questions throughout, but the legal process is an adversarial battle and does not explain itself; at this stage, the trial over with a not guilty verdict, I have no idea why this was allowed. (Thread ends)'

David Conn: Guardian reporter - https://twitter.com/david_conn/status/1200706800766599168

'The audio of David Duckenfield admitting in 2015 at the inquests that his failure to close the tunnel caused the deaths of 96 people, and apologising. Then at his trial his QC said he now admitted no failures, and blamed supporters (the victims) and other police officers.'

Please remember there are still live criminal proceedings ongoing.

The David Conn article in the Guardian succinctly illustrates what the families and survivors were up against, that should be shared as wide as possible.

https://www.theguardian.com/football/2019/dec/03/mayors-of-liverpool-and-manchester-call-for-hillsborough-law


...the mayor of Liverpool City region, Steve Rotheram, and Manchester’s mayor, Andy Burnham, as well as Margaret Aspinall, chair of the Hillsborough Family Support Group, call on Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, Jeremy Corbyn and Jo Swinson to introduce without delay the so-called “Hillsborough law” if elected prime minister.

Introduced to parliament as the public authority (accountability) bill, it would require public authorities such as the police, fire brigade and local authorities to have a “duty of candour” in legal processes and provide bereaved families with funding for legal representation equal to that of those public authorities.

“While this won’t change the verdict which has been reached in [the Duckenfield prosecution],” the letter states, “it will at least be of some comfort to the Hillsborough families for it to be recognised by the country that the failure is not theirs, but of an overly hierarchical and adversarial system which is deeply flawed and in need of fundamental reform.”
