the username - oojason - back in the day I was a N64 GoldenEye nut, so a mixture of that and my actual first name (though had to be ‘oo’ and not ‘00’ as that was just too corny, even for me).
the avatar - is Oddball from Kelly’s Heroes - a reminder not to take life too seriously, to sit back, relax catch some rays and eat some cheese and drink some wine, to work on my dog imitation - and to keep checking ebay for a cheap tank…
the title - I think I was once a Jedi Knight a long time ago, but these titles no longer exist…
the signature - pretty self-explanatory - in 1989 96 people went to watch a game and never came home. Hundreds were injured. Survivors have taken their own lives since - many have been heavily affected by the events of the day and what happened since… In a bid to push away the authorities’ faults and failures on that day they fabricated a story and shifted the blame onto others at the game. Despite evidence to the contrary available at the time - many people believed the authorities, backed by a friendly press and those in Govt - and it took 27 years for the truth to finally come out in a court of law^ - a jury ruled that the people who died were unlawfully killed. Despite the Police and other authorities continuing with their false narrative to this day - and many of them refusing to co-operate with investigations~ ongoing or resigning to avoid punishment - The Truth is finally out there.

^ = The Hillsborough inquests were the longest running in English legal history.
~ = The IPCC Hillsborough investigation is the biggest criminal investigation into police misconduct ever conducted in England and Wales.
In December 2016, Operation Resolve handed over files of evidence relating to 15 suspects to the Crown Prosecution Service who are expected to make charging decisions in the Summer of 2017.
Like many others, I have no faith in the IPCC investigation or Operation Resolve (or the CPS) - though hope to be proved wrong.
on a lighter note I think I’ll go for a Brian Blessed / Prince Vultan avatar next… after a quick go on GoldenEye…
