Untie the Hands of SIS

BY MATTHEW CORRIGAN I usually, for obvious reasons, carefully edit my articles on Country Squire Magazine. I haven’t with this one and I couldn’t care less.

His more notorious fibs include losing close friends in the Hillsborough tragedy, having a PhD and playing football for Tranmere Rovers.
