  So Duckenfield  is the only real face in the frame?   The others are bit players  after the event - not directly implicated as agents in the loss of life.

Basically. It's a tricky one - it was thirty years ago, and things like safety standards (mentioned above by Aileen) were different. What happened needs to be judged by the mores of the day.

Good point, and it isn't helped by the fact that it took an incredible 25 years before this inquest was held.  I watched the whole thing unfold on TV - not that I'm a footie fan, but I was with a friend who was - and it was horrible.

The coverage the other night was very moving and the evidence of police and media cover up quite sickening.

I go to a lot of football matches and there are always fans arriving late often from the pub. The Scottish police always seem to be prepared for this and just make them wait and go through the turnstiles like everyone else whether or not they miss the start of the match.

Fans often get angry at missing part of the game but they know to expect this if they arrive late. The decision to open the gate at hills borough was what killed these poor fans many of whom were there in good time.  There is really interesting footage on the website below showing how police had completely lost control outside the ground. It is obvious what happened . Nobody intended to kill anyone but the  head policeman who blundered over the gate and then lied will have to carry this on his conscience to the grave . It is truly awful.

^ Thank you for posting that.   I watched it happening on TV when the BBC switched from the match they were showing to Hillsborough once it was realised that something was going terribly wrong with the crowd and the scenes that followed were ones I would never want to witness again.  Just a thought though, I wonder if the Scottish police have always been as efficient, or whether this is a case of 'lessons having been learnt'?  Anyway I have no sympathy for fans who turn up late because they've spent too long in the pub!

So what happened to patient confidentiality then?  And why is this being handed over to Google anyway?  Also doesn't the Royal Free Trust realise that what is encrypted can easily be decrypted by those, including Google's employees, who know how to do it?
