More marginal polling from Ashcroft released today shows Labour have impressive leads in seats that are between 45 and 55 on their target list and have increased their leads in some of these areas since October.

It seems that Labour are going to gain somewhere between 30 and 60 seats in England, but lose between 20 and 30 in Scotland.

finally, after nearly 26 years....


Mr Greaney says: "Do you agree with the following?

"People died in a crush in the central pens?"


Mr Duckenfield says yes.

Mr Greaney says: "That if they had not been permitted to flow down the tunnel into those central pens that would not have occurred?"

Mr Duckenfield says yes.

Mr Greaney says: "That closing the tunnel would have prevented that and therefore would have prevented the tragedy?"

Mr Duckenfield says yes.

Mr Greaney says: "That you failed to recognise that there was a need to close that tunnel?"

Mr Duckenfield says yes.

Mr Greaney says: "And therefore, failed to take steps to achieve that?"

Mr Duckenfield says yes.

Mr Greaney says: "That failure was the direct cause of the deaths of 96 persons in the Hillsborough tragedy?"

Mr Duckenfield says: "Yes, sir."

Mr Duckenfield agrees a person can lack experience but step up to the mark.

He says the view that he was "incompetent" is a view some people would share.

Wasn't there unfortunately, but what a result. After the disappointment of Batley (when I thought we did OK, irrespective of the scoreline), another bad result today would have been a nightmare. A bad time to get our bogey team then, and the second quarter of the game seemed to point to a repeat of last season's home game against them. Can only assume that second 40 is as good as we've produced for a long time.
What a pack of forwards we have - and a few to come back from injury still.
