The quote above was not actually made about the Hillsborough campaigners but I thought it was most apt when I came across it only this week when reading ‘Against the Grain’ by Norman Baker.
The quote comes from Peter Oborne of The Spectator who reviewed the book but, as I say, I read it just as the the Inquest Jury was announcing the historic verdicts. I suppose it was just a coincidence of circumstances that I happened to pick up the book at the same time but none the less I feel that it sums up what the Hillsborough campaigners have been doing.
Their 27 years of fighting for justice, which of course is ongoing, has been quite remarkable especially as the ruling political establishment over the years had seemingly wanted the whole thing brushed under the carpet.
A quite remarkable group of campaigners.
