Scallywag Magazine Front Cover

Well, well. Look what’s turned up. A black and white copy of an original Scallywag Magazine front cover. Issue 22 dated 1994, to be precise. Looks like there are some interesting articles in this issue. “We expose the racism behind the Tory gays” and an exclusive about Lord McAlpine. Although it’s unclear which Lord McAlpine they are referring to. Obviously it can’t be Lord Alistair McAlpine because he has just received £185,000 damages from the BBC for being wrongly ‘unamed’ in a Newsnight programme about a high ranking Tory paedophile.

So, just to be clear. It can’t be Lord Alistair McAlpine. He would have sued Scallywag Magazine for wrongly naming him as the paedophile in question. And won. Judging by the fact that Lord McAlpine’s laywers are now actively seeking to sue the 10,000 Twitter users who did just that. Thank goodness I didn’t tweet it then. Not that I would. I have no proof.

Hmmm, if only the original pages of that Scallywag Magazine article were still available. I bet that would make for some interesting reading. Maybe it would clear up the arguments about who is telling the truth … once and for all. Oh, and it’s a pity we can’t see that article about the ‘Tory gays’ either. Oh well, maybe that will turn up too. One day ;-)

  1. He probably didn’t sue the mag because that would have just increased the publicity, ala Striesand. It didn’t have a massive circulation.

    • Ah yes, the ‘Streisand Effect’ … that could be one explanation although that didn’t seem to deter John Major. He successfully sued them over that ‘affair decoy catering woman’.

  2. So, the campaign has persisted since 1994 – who assisted that longevity ?

  3. Bloody Hell Max, someone has a long memory; and/or, a loft full of memorabilia.

    As an aside, I wonder why that mag discriminates against the Gays of other political parties?

    BTW Which ‘Polly’ is being referred too? The only two Pollys I can recall are Ms Toynbee & the Connie-Booth character in Fawlty Towers.

  4. I’ve trashed four of the featured in the piece. Max’s followers have more brains than 99% of those who believe that shit. Trust the truth and noting else

  5. Having been corrected in an earlier post that McAlpine had not sued Scallywag for their libel (brilliant trurhspeaker find btw Max) could someone please explain why John Major did sue (given that “The Tory Party ” is not a legal entity) rather than, say, Portillo or Lilley?

    Incidentally, during their disclaimer about Lord McAlpine not being the abuser of Paul Mersham (sp?) the Telegraph sort of assumed that it must have been some other McAlpine, now dead so that’s all right then.

    • John Major sued over a different matter .
      ” In 1993, Major had also sued two magazines, New Statesman and Society and Scallywag, as well as their distributors, for reporting rumours of an affair with a caterer . ”
      There is a passing mention to it here :-

      • Regarding the above link , about 1/3 of the way down that article was the bit that I found most significant . Unpaid rent , seized assets missing files , pretty convenient .

  6. I think the overriding thing we need to remember here is that some cunt who was a high ranking Tory of the Thatcher era abused that boy and that is a serious crime where said low-life cunt has thus far evaded justice through his connections to other well-placed deviants. Who is the cunt in question and why hasn’t he been brought to book? Let’s not let go of this until the outstanding questions get answered. If there are paedo rings operating within the establishment then that is something we need to make every effort to ensure the bastards responsible are exposed and dealt with according to the law, just like any other bastard who doesn’t enjoy such connections should be.

    • Well said, Wiggy,

      My Dad was a copper in the ’50s and used to detest that part of his job which he called, “Poof Patrol” – i.e. staking out the local toilets where men who would now be referred to as ‘gay’ would importune each other and ‘commit acts of gross indecency’ (it was agin the law in those days). He caught one poor unfortunate, a retired army major of the Guards who had fought with distinction in WW2. My Dad asked him why he did this sort of thing, and the major replied sadly, “it all starts in public school, you know…”

      The incidence of sexual deviance among the Great and the Good is high because so many of them went to public school, it would seem. Which is not to say that the activity is reserved for them alone, of course, there are nonces in every walk of life, but there does seem to be a greater preponderance of them in the governing class. Once they are in positions of power and influence, it is so much easier to cover one’s tracks than if one is living in a sink estate with sixty-seven quid a week between them and the workhouse.

      My father, now long dead, never made it further than sergeant because he refused to join the masons.

  7. I believe he never sued because the magazine went bust shortly afterwards?

    • This article is dated 1994 and the magazine went out of circulation in 1995, so plenty of time to send out a writ. Even Regan stated in a later article that there was a curious lack of writs. Also, it isn’t just about money it’s about clearing names from such horrible accusations.
