Tory sport monkey apologises for Hillsborough slur

Jeremy Hunt, Tory Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, has been compelled to issue an apology after suggesting that the 1989 Hillsborough disaster was caused by hooliganism rather than the South Yorkshire police force's somewhat  laissez-faire approach to crowd control.

Apology not withstanding, I suspect that the good people of Liverpool will henceforth exploit the potential of young Jezzer's surname when engaging, as they frequently do, in spirited debate regarding matters of issues of sport and culture, as in 'He was a right Jeremy Hunt that ref'

You can find out more about the Hillsborough disaster and the campaign for justice for the 96 here and here.

And before he gets ideas above his station, it's only here because my almost identical one has vanished into the digital swamp that is the My Documents folder
