Kelvin MacKenzie Disrespects The 96

The new inquests into the deaths of the 96 Liverpool fans who died in the Hillsborough stadium disaster in 1989 yesterday relived the last moments of 15-year-old Kevin Williams, an event given added poignancy by his mother Anne, who had fought for so many years for justice, having died before those inquests started. Kevin was fatally crushed in the surge of fans after Police opened an exit gate at the Leppings Lane end of the ground.
Given that it was Anne Williams’ son whose death had been the subject of yesterday’s proceedings, one might have thought that those who have made a name for themselves trivialising, disrespecting and even demonising the 96 would have stopped and thought before opening mouth and inserting boot. But that was to miss the tendency of former Sun editor Kelvin McFilth to remain ignorant, and care even less.

Kel has, therefore, dedicated part of his Sun column today - yes, they’re so sorry about what they said in 1989 that they re-hired the SOB who oversaw it all - to slagging off one well-known Liverpudlian, as well as a politician who has spoken up for the Hillsborough families, just for good measure. The subject of his rant, as befits a loyal Murdoch pundit, is the Tories’ proposed Trade Union reforms, which Kel endorses wholeheartedly.

Under the heading “Have a meal on Red Len”, he froths “I LOVE seeing trade union leaders frothing at the mouth (especially that Liverpool tosser Len McCluskey) as they rage against the legislation to slightly reduce their power and at the same time make our lives less of a nightmare”. Yes, Liverpool people, the former editor of the Super Soaraway Currant Bun wants to remind you that you’re all tossers.

And, as the man said, there’s more: “these days nobody needs the union, as workers are protected by laws including unfair dismissal, maternity pay, discrimination, minimum pay, equal pay, redundancy terms and whistle-blowing, not to mention staff associations and works councils”. Very good Kel, and how exactly were all of those benefits won? Most, if not all, were as a result of Trade Union action.

But he has another insult to deliver: “The unions clearly don’t need all your money as they sent £11million to Labour to finance MPs including Corbyn and that fat t*** Tom Watson. My advice - dump the subs and take the missus out instead”. Why should Kel dislike Tom Watson? Ah well. “A LABOUR MP has compared the Sun’s coverage of the Hillsborough tragedy to the phone-hacking row which led to the closure of the News of the World”.

That was the Liverpool Echo reporting the Don’t Buy The Sun concert in 2013. Watson went on to say “Why have those Hillsborough families still not received the justice they deserve? Police failure, a newspaper out of control, politicians failing to act. When he saw what the Sun did, the lies they invented about Liverpool fans stealing from the dead, Rupert Murdoch could be in no doubt, if ever he was, what went on at his newspapers”.

Yes, that’s why Kelvin McFilth hates Tom Watson. And his rant today shows he still doesn’t care about what the paper he then edited said back in 1989. Don’t Buy The Sun.

The Sun wasn't "...a newspaper out of control."

The point then and now is that it was COMPLETELY CONTROLLED by the Nazi Murdoch, who didn't respond until it became clear the whole of Merseyside united to boycott his ratbag rag and the rats who work there. MacKenzie was simply the chief rat.

Ann Williams was a truly heroic woman who pursued the truth right up to her tragic death. A woman with the kind of decency and honesty MacKenzie will never have, nor will ANYONE who ever "works" for Murdoch.

His latest propaganda merely shows that a rat never changes it's tail. He's a disgusting example of how and why this country has become what an author once labeled "...a far right litter-strewn authoritarian rat hole."

Like all of his type he's beneath contempt, an English Nazi of the very worst type.

There's only one "tosser" and it's not Len McCluskey.

MacKenzie is just a vile cowardly weasel without a single decent molecule in his festering spite riven carcass.

Sun and Kelvin, Sun and Kelvin
Go together like raw sewage and dustbin

They're out to compete with Ms Burley

Try, try, try to separate them
It's an illusion
Try, try, try, and you will only come
To this conclusion

Sun and Kelvin, Sun and Kelvin
It's a combo made for a right(eous) din
Ask their loyal readers
They've got to like the bullying bleeders!
