    The debunking of the myths of Hillsborough is important to the victims’ families, there is no doubt. But it is also important to everyone who wishes to go to a football match without being deprived of their rights as citizens.

    For too long, the 80s rhetoric has been buoyed by the emotive and clouded issue of what happened on that dreadful day. As a result of the rhetoric (not the disaster) we are kettled, manhandled and subject to restrictive laws merely for wishing to go to support our teams. Time for some clarity and a clear understanding that ‘football fan’ is not a synonym for ‘violent criminal.’
