(satire – just about)
Kelvin MacKenzie, editor of the Sun at the time of the Hillsborough disaster, has offered the people of Liverpool his “profuse apologies” for being such an arrogant, self-important, jumped-up piece of shit.
MacKenzie said after the publication of the Hillsborough Independent Panel report yesterday about the 1989 disaster in which 96 Liverpool fans died, that he had discovered to his horror that it would have been far more accurate if he had written the headline “I Am A Lying Turd” rather than “The Truth“.
His first unequivocal apology in the 23 years since the notorious front page, which led to a mass boycott of the paper on Merseyside, came after the Hillsborough report concluded that the evidence pointed conclusively to Mr Mackenzie being an utter cock.
In a statement, MacKenzie said:
I offer my profuse apologies to the people of Liverpool for being a bit of a shit.
It has taken more than two decades, 400,000 documents and a two-year inquiry to discover to my horror that I am in fact a total prick.
