April 15th 1989: Hillsborough Disaster

On this day in 1989, 25 years ago today, the Hillsborough disaster occurred in Sheffield, United Kingdom. A human crush during an FA Cup semi-final match between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest at Hillsborough Stadium led to the deaths of 96 people. The victims were mostly Liverpool fans, as the two sides were allocated separate sections of the stadium. The Liverpool area was overcrowded, with the police letting in more spectators than the stadium could contain and making exits into additional entries. The game only lasted six minutes, as the mass of people broke the crush barrier. The incident proved very controversial at the time and still today. The authorities initially tried to cover up the police negligence and blamed the fans for the disaster, claiming they were mostly violent drunkards who rushed the field. Stories swirled accusing the spectators of attacking police officers and each other. However, subsequent investigations revealed the level of police culpability. These concluded that: the fans were not responsible for the disaster; the authorities did try to cover-up what happened; many of the deaths could have been avoided if they had received prompt medical treatment (only 14 of the victims went to hospital); and the findings have led to the abolition of standing spaces in British football stadiums. On the 25 year anniversary, we mourn one of the worst stadium disasters in history and the tragically avoidable deaths of the 96.

I BOUGHT ONE OF THESE LAST WEEK AARON.

I BOUGHT ONE OF THESE LAST WEEK AARON.

Horatio Nelson related artifacts from the National Maritime Museum.

  1. Nelson’s Trafalgar coat - you can see the bullet hole from the shot that killed him
  2. Nelson’s breeches and stockings - blood is most likely from his secretary
  3. Nelson’s pony tail from his wig
  4. Funeral invite
  5. Union Flag that flew on the Victory, and then used at Nelson’s funeral

My new Oyster card wallet thing.

And my shiny work boots.

This is one of the saddest things I have ever watched.

casual racism much

I am getting really sick of casual racism on tumblr now. What if all these ‘white boy/girl’ posts where the other way round?

I’m so excited, I didn’t think I stood a chance. It’s a shame the V&A have decided to exhibit the work at the Morley Gallery, but never mind.
