Now re-hired by the Sun - just to show what Rupe really thinks of the Hillsborough families - the paper’s former editor Kelvin McKenzie has let it be known that he not only knows the true story behind Wallis’ Newsnight appearance, but also that he is going to share his secrets with the paper’s readers, but not until later in the week after he’s had chance to make it up. Yes, Kel’s relationship with the truth is as transient as ever.
But Kel was serious: “it’s tricks like the one they pulled on Wallis (what trick?) - and probably all politicians for that matter - that will mean a licence fee freeze, more redundancies and accepting the price of free licences for the over-75s into their budget (that’s £650million gone west)”. Think about that. Kelvin McFilth is suggesting that broadcasters should do politicians’ bidding if they know what’s good for them.
There is only one use for Mackenzie:
The minute the tenth rate cockney boot boy spiv opens his mouth you know he's talking for the corrupt Bullingdon Gang establishment. So if you want to see what their future intentions are you only need to read Mackenzie's crackpot ramblings - just don't pay your good money to do it.
As for his "reappointment"....what else did you expect from Murdoch and Kavanagh? Decency?
I'm still waiting for the scumbag (and any of his employers and supporters) to appear in front of the Hillsborough families or an audience in the city of Liverpool to explain and apologise for their thirty-odd years of cowardice after the Hillsborough Disaster.
Mackenzie is everything that is wrong with this country. And if he wants to challenge that opinion I'll be delighted to see the sweaty twat in court.
He doesn't just represent everything that is wrong with this country, but bears huge responsibility for dragging the wider culture of the country down into the gutter and revelling in that position.
Where he led, even lesser non-entities followed.
A shame that the overall population could not follow the example of Liverpool, and leave the Sun on the newsagents shelves. End of.
"MacKenzie stated that he discovered early on in his career that he had little writing ability and that his talents lay in making up headlines and laying out pages." "MacKenzie himself stated that he feels that his own spell as editor of The Sun had a "positively downhill impact on journalism".

Nothing much changed then?
