    75 years (in June) since the death of this man whose inventions we still get the benefits of today. Ashamed to say I wasn't aware of his contributions to stereo and TV before being killed in the service of his country. Some people pack a lot into their relatively short lives.
    We certainly have produced, for a relatively small country, more than our fair share of people who invented things which changed our lives.

    Apparently, they've been coming under increasing pressure to do this, since the outcome of the inquest.

    Fair enough
    Should have done it straight after the inquest though

    That's shocking - what about the children and those there just for the football? I see points being deducted, and hopefully, banning orders handed out. Not at my club, thank you very much.

    How many died because of inhaling fumes? How many were hospitalised due to respiratory problems? How many died due to the conflagration caused by these smoke flares? How many were crushed to death in the stampede to escape? We need to know.
    Meanwhile one flare at a City game and fans have a nervous breakdown and Inspector Pantsdown spends hundreds of man hours and a fortune tracking the culprit down and getting them banned, even at an away game when the home team's coppers aren't bothered.

    Bit late in the day, but Meat is Murder by The Smiths came out 32 years ago today.

    So, it turns out that £160 per week wasn't his wages, but his insurance quote.
