Things you want to say but can't

All the candidates for the London Mayor are pants in varying degrees. I'd completely forgotten about it so no idea, may not bother as I don't want to vote for any of them.

Although I do quite like the idea of a London Mayor called "Pidgeon" - appropriate!

There has been so little election coverage you'd hardly be aware it was happening. Two flyers - Labour and UKIP but didn't vote for either.

Unless you are having side effects from the antibiotics or in pain I can't see any reason why you shouldn't run.

VDOT -  yes I think we are  Was hard to ignore the friend who posted on FB asking where the outrage was but I managed.

I think most normal people know that VDOT and, as a result, are aware they are being fed a bunch of bullshit by people looking to score political points.

I am voting Green next week, at least their aims go beyond the adversarial, self-serving crap that leads to this undignified scrapping.

Why is anyone surprised that tabloid newspapers know nothing about marathon running? It's not as if these stories are reported in the sports section. 

The comments below the articles have more value in that runners will come on and explain to non-runners exactly why he/she can't be telling the truth.

Also there had already been several "near misses" at Hillsborough, avoided by organised policing by a crowd control expert. That day they basically put a bloke in charge who didn't know what he was doing and didn't bother to find out.

JT141 - No. No culpability. Even the the report that led to the inquest found that it was not the case. From the Guardian 3 years ago:

"The report, substantially authored by professor Phil Scraton of Queen's University, Belfast, and unanimously agreed by the panel of eight experts, found there was "no evidence … to verify the serious allegations of exceptional levels of drunkenness, ticketlessness or violence among Liverpool fans".

You can see from the CCTV footage what happens outside. There is agitation and anxiety to get into the ground because kick-off is approaching but there is no evidence of violence or disorder and if there were fans who were drunk or without tickets (I'm guessing there will always be some at every major game anywhere) they did not contribute to the disaster. 

The failings were not only with the police but with the engineers who rebuilt the Leppings Lane end and and and overestimated the capacity of the pens. Read the full 14 points of what the jury had to consider.

I doubt she will profit from it. 

JSW didn't profit from cheating last year and the woman who claimed to have run in high heels and mostly didn't has never been heard of since.

This is her moment of fame (infame? ) nobody knew who she was before Sunday and she'll be forgotten about in a few weeks.
