Wasn't sure where to put this but...

Great to see the Manics pay such a fitting and timely tribute to the 96 on their new album.

Resistance is Futile, the 13th album by the Manics

Lyrics:

As I wake to a sunset
The light dances on the Mersey
And I think of the 96
As the tears fall down on me
And there is courage
There is pride
You can see it in your eyes
Fight for justice fight for life
There are angel in these skies

As the night falls around me
I see joy and devotion
These times will never leave
Like the rain on the ocean
There is dignity and pride
There is poetry and life
There are ghosts within these stones
There's defiance in these bones

And all the hatred they tried to throw at you
But you stayed so strong
Yeah all the hatred it never was the truth
So keep keeping on
This is forever
We'll never leave you now
This is forever
We'll never leave you now

   

It's true to say that if Shankly had told us to invade Poland we'd be queuing up 10 deep all the way from Anfield to the Pier Head.

Didn't they do something years ago ?
He who sees himself in all beings and all beings in himself loses all fear.

- The Upanishads.

He who expects freedom of speech should allow others to speak .  Me - Now.

He who sees twats really is a twat themselves - Me - Now .

The subtext of this song
I've thought about it for so long
But it's really not the sort of thing
That people want to hear us sing
The context of this song
Well I could go on and on
But it's still unfashionable
To believe in principles

South South Yorkshire - mass murderer
How can you sleep at night, sleep at night
South South Yorkshire - mass murderer
How can you sleep at night, sleep at night

The reason for this song
Well maybe it's a pointless one
But thank you Jimmy McGovern
For reminding me of what lives on
The ending for this song
Well I haven't really thought of one
There's nothing I could ever say
That could really take the pain away

South South Yorkshire - mass murderer
How can you sleep at night, sleep at night
South South Yorkshire - mass murderer
How can you sleep at night, sleep at night

There is a large ‘Don’t Buy the Sun’ banner behind the goal on the televised FA Cup Dulwich Hamlet v Carlisle game tonight.

Great to see, a small club with a lot of history and community oriented, left leaning activism.

Understand your pain.  Today has been difficult.

It's about time this Hillsborough forum was opened up again to posters.  Fully appreciate why it was closed down before.  But we all recognise that, with the emphasis on supporting people's mental health issues, that it's important to be able to talk about things.
Luck favours the brave, but not the stupid.

I don't know much about these - though they may be of some help or assistance, just someone to talk to? Just a heads-up.
