The Sun Up To Its Old Tricks re city of Liverpool.

Postby Diamond Dog » 14 Apr 2017, 19:34

Oh and a touch of casual racism thrown in for good measure...

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/39601728

This is Kelvin McKenzie - the guy who was editor when The Sun published its heinous lies after the Hillsborough tragedy. And then 'apologised' finally in 2012 - 23 years later. 4 years on - we all know what that apology meant, don't we?

It's almost unbelievable.



The man & his paper are contemptible.

You'd expect nothing more from this odious person, and what he represents.

Hopefully, he's overstepped himself this time.

I had no idea he was mixed race. Is this common knowledge? I would never look at him and think he was part black to be honest.

Maybe mackenzie had no idea either.

There was a discussion about Barkley being able to play for England or Nigeria.

Fair enough. I had no idea. Perhaps Mackenzie never either but considering his track record I can understand why some would assume it was something more.

The man really is vile

Given it was written on the week leading up to the anniversary of Hillsborough. It's completely indefensible by McKenzie or The Sun.

You'd figure someone in the editing or proofing departments would've picked it up before publishing it. But of course stopping a cunt's throbbingly offensive article being published is nowhere near as profitable as publishing it, getting the hits, THEN condemning the pants off of it.

Me neither. But then again it was news to me that Ryan Giggs was mixed race, although of course DNA suggests we pretty much all are.

I knew Giggs is something of a serial philanderer, but I'd never have imagined he'd put it around to that extent...

I don't think it's evidence of racism - just lazy idiocy.

MacKenzie is s worthless piece of shit. How much comeuppance does one man need to accrue before he is shunned.
