Ex-Tory MP unlikely to be welcome in Liverpool

Sir Irvne Patnick was the Tory MP for Sheffield Hallam until he was booted out at the 1997 generl election. He seemed to be a generic right wing arsehole supporter of clause 28 and the death penalty and opposed sanctions on  South Africa.

Today's report named Patnick was one of the sources of the lies printed by the Sun about the behaviour of Liverpool fans (Apparently he was named earlier but today the story is widespread). Strangey he is refusing to talk to the press.

Shame he wasn't so reticent in 1989.

There are calls for him to be stripped on his knighthood. Probably won't happen but I daresay the old bastard doesn't have many friends right now
