That bitch, Thatcher, Thatcher the milk snatcher, so beloved by Paul Joseph Watson, helped to cover it all up as pay off for the South Yorkshire Police destroying the miners for her in 1984 (and there was probably a bit of protecting the Monarchy's Mafia, aka Freemasonry, too).
Prof Scraton wrote the acclaimed book Hillsborough: The Truth and led the Hillsborough Independent Panel’s research team, which set in motion the legal process.
In a statement, he said: “I researched Hillsborough from 1989, publishing reports, articles and the first edition of Hillsborough: The Truth in 1990. Until 2009, and despite compelling evidence, successive governments declined to pursue a thorough, independent review of the context, consequences and aftermath of the disaster.
“This changed as a direct result of the families’ and survivors’ brave, persistent campaign. It led to the Hillsborough Independent Panel, its ground-breaking findings, new inquests and their crucially significant verdicts."
"I headed the Panel’s research team and was a consultant to the families’ lawyers throughout the new inquests."
"I could not receive an honour on the recommendation of those who remained unresponsive to the determined efforts of bereaved families and survivors to secure truth and justice."
The award was refused in protest “at those who remained unresponsive” to help families and survivors https://t.co/jO6amv4iC8— Liverpool Echo (@LivEchonews) 29 December 2016
