    I think that would be very crass.

    If I'd lost someone there and the Queen went to pin some medal on me Id ask her why the fuck she never bothered her arse to visit the scene of the disaster or any of the families. I'd then pin the medal right in her forehead.

    Perhaps, but they've singlehandedly uncovered one of the grossest miscarriages of jusitce and cover ups arguably ever in Britain.

    That deserves state recognition of some kind or another. Even if it's just an offer.

    To me they haven't done anything not done from grief and tragedy, and I don't think it's appropriate to be rewarding such behaviour. It cheapens it somehow. Don't get me wrong, I still appreciate the sentiment.

    Yep, didn't we all. It didn't stop the shithouse did it. Or Dukinfield being medically retired on full pension and playing golf all the time.

    Good. It may only be a token gesture that's removed but it sends a message.

    I'd hope it gets some media attention but sadly I fear it will get little, if any, national coverage.

    It was in most of the papers on the day as far as I could tell, but you're right - it'll be quickly forgotten.
