And I don't blame him one bit. How could he accept when it has taken over 25 years for the truth to be admitted to? To blame the people of Liverpool themselves was ridiculous and so very hurtful.

What do others think?

Good for him. Too little, too late. After 25 years of campaigning he has a perfect right to refuse and to let the establishment know that what happened will not be forgiven or forgotten.

He did the decent thing

Well done to him. The shame is, the people who received the refusal letter wouldn't have the foggiest idea why.
