  1. Not sure I’ve got the meaning right here, but I worked in Southwark when the Bowbell struck – most of those on board the Marchioness were not wealthy (some were in fact unemployed); everyone just assumed they were. It was a tragedy to them and their families, no less so than the horrors of Hillsborough.

The Thames still needs better regulating to avoid a similar accident happening. Sorry, but I was there and felt the pain.
