The main points I have digested are these, some of which also appeared in the Taylor report which has been conveniently overlooked by many after
testimony at the inquests appeared to support their agenda:
There was a catastrophic failure of leadership amongst senior officers of SYP
The cutoff point of 3:15pm is completely untenable and a new inquest must surely be ordered
The scale of the cover up was huge, and went further than anyone thought.
41 lives could potentially have been saved had ambulances been allowed onto the pitch, as it was, Doctors and Nurses from the crowd did the
best they could, but there was no medical equipment at the ground, contrary to rules which state there should have been.
Over 40 ambulances were kept outside, preventing vital triage which would have meant the most seriously injured being administered to first.
Thatchers private secretary stated to her that "SYP have acted despicably, bordering on deceit". She did nothing, no censure, nothing and for that
she is culpable in the lies that followed.
The injuries examined by the Panel were not consistent with those reported at the inquest and appear to have been "lumped together"
There's much more of course, but as it's a near 400 page document I haven't read it all or even begun the process of cross referencing.
A big mention also to Newsnight for their interviews last night, and also to Trevor Hicks for his dignity and refusal to bow to official pressure.
A quick word about Mr Hicks, for those that don't know.
Mr Hicks was able to find both his daughters on the pitch, they were both in great distress having received crush injuries. At this time an ambulance
(the only one to make it as far as Leppings Lane end) came and was being loaded with casualties. The ambulance was only able to take one of his
daughters and himself, so he was left with the horrifying decision of which daughter to stay with. He chose to go in the ambulance, believing that his
other daughter was in capable hands (other fans were helping at this point)
Both of his daughters died.
Mr Hicks, along with many others has shown incredible fortitude and dignity in the 23 years since that awful day, and we can only hope that the next
stage in their quest for justice proves as fruitfull as the HIP report.
