    Has anyone ever seen the episodes of ''Cracker'' with Robert Carlise?
    Titled, to be a somebody....

    Quote...To Be a Somebody is the first episode of the second season of Cracker, divided into three parts. It served as the breakthrough role of actor Robert Carlyle. Unlike other episodes, it is connected with a real life event, the Hillsborough disaster, and other events connected to it.unquote.

    You can read the story plot in 3 parts here... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/To_Be_a_Somebody

    The new inquest, which will have a jury, is starting.

    It was said today that there was a similar crush on the same event the previous year, but it had been considered an organisational success and the same plan was put in place.

    Thousands at the Phoenix Park to remember Hillsborough, after 25 years.

    As a Liverpool fan I would like to see 96 seats left empty at every home game

    This article by a journalist who was in Pen 3, aged 19, and who has campaigned for justice, is worth reading as it conveys a lot about Britain from the Thatcher period, and now.

    Announced today that charges will be brought against 6 people, for 95 deaths at Hillsborough. Mainly former police officers, but also a public servant and a lawyer. Would this have happened without Grenfell ? We will probably never know.

    The attitude to the Liverpool fans presumably relates to this.

    The working class was seen by Thatcher as a problem to be contained while mines and manufacturing were wound down, and skilled workers transformed into "chavs" and hooligans. The conduct of the police on the day at Hillsborough, that led to the deaths, was fed by that policy and attitude.

    This post on 'controlled decline' gives a hint of how the Tories view the working class, and its neighbourhoods, perhaps relevant when considering what happened at Grenfell Tower.

    I am not subscribing to any theory that the fire was deliberate - but the trashy work to the Tower was a conscious decision.
