The following is an exercise for me in selecting what to leave out of a piece of prose that has a voluminous amount of background material. What the The Sun newspaper got away with, aided and abetted by corrupt officials is a matter of particularly despicable record.So why then was The Sun still sold in the city centre in numerous outlets?The common trick was to have the pile turned face down but it was still sold openly.I used to walk up Bold Street towards the bombed out church and pick up all the newspapers before sending out prompts to football interns in a former existence. So why then were Sky football matches broadcast illegally from dodgy digital boxes in pubs – even city centre pubs – when if the contempt for Murdoch was legitimate there were always other channels available?

Does anyone reading this know what date that ‘anniversary’ is commemorated? Last night, a sizeable number of Liverpool fans took time out form playing the Grief Junkie Card to attack and effectively destroy the Manchester City team coach.
Just within the confines of football 56 died and 265 were injured in the Bradford City fire of 1985. Who reading this was aware it was on May 11th of ’85? This video footage os from a press Association journalist.
