Like everybody in this City I am really hurt and offended by Ed Miliband’s support for The S*n ‘newspaper’ today.

Such clear support for that publication at any time would be wrong but at such a sensitive time is deeply shocking.

My city was offended and insulted by the lies and smears peddled by The S*n and their hindrance to our fight for justice is something that will never be forgotten.

For the leader of the Labour Party to make such an offensive gesture insults not only me but every person in the city.

This is just another example of how out of touch the politicians in their ivory towers are from the lives of ordinary people.

It begs the question – were the comments he made after the Hillsborough panel report sincere or just sound bites?
