Hillsborough cop shows unbelievable gall

SO the chief constable of West Yorkshire police observes the shameful evidence of 23 years of official untruth and cover-up regarding the Hillsborough disaster and chooses to suggest that Liverpool supporters made their job "harder than it needed to be".

Norman Bettison surely meant to say that supporters actually did the job his people so abjectly failed to do, meaning they tried to help. In an Olympics for gall, Mr Bettison would be Usain Bolt.
