He told the Telegraph "In the 1990s Scallywag, a gossip magazine printed in London, published the claims, but went bankrupt after being sued by Sir John Major, who was the Conservative prime minister at the time. “They [the allegations] were dealt with — Scallywag went bankrupt, they stopped,” Lord McAlpine said" http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/tvandradio/bbc/9681779/Lord-McAlpine-Head-of-BBC-Trust-should-resign.html
Prime Minister John Major sued Scallywag in 1993 claiming robustly he was not having an affair. Major lied of course he was having and affair with Edwina Curry. Was this actually a conspiracy to close down Scallywag? Were Scallywags reporters deliberately mislead to keep them away from the truth about John Major's illicit affair with Edwina Curry. The woman Clare Latimer wrongly named as the adulteress thinks so she accused John Major of using her as a decoy to draw attention away from his adultery with Edwina Curry.
Later when the affair with Edwina Curry became public knowledge Scallywag's Lawyers David Price considered Legal Action against John Major. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-140434/Magazine-threatens-legal-action-Major.html
So a serving Prime Minister sued Scallywag but Lord McAlpine did not why?
Further to this the fact the Scallywag went bankrupt need not have stopped Lord McAlpine it is not uncommon to sue the journalists and in this case the journalists were also the founders and editors 1) Angus James Wilson and 2) Simon Regan. The fictional entity Scallywag died in 1995 but the founders, editors and journalists lived. Still McAlpine did not sue.?
Scallywag's articles were republished everywhere on the Internet still McAlpine did not sue?
David Icke republished the allegations 1999 in the Biggest Secret, pages 301, 383 and 392, making references to his involvement in the North Wales Home, Still Lord Alpine did not sue?
Jimmy McAlpine (deceased) the cousin Lord McAlpine claims was the real child abuser.
Scallywag was founded by Angus James Wilson and SImon Regan and was published between 1991 and 1995 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scallywag_%28magazine%29
Following the Bankruptcy of Scallywag its founders formed a successor called Spiked Magazine and this magazine continued the story about Paedophiles in the Conservative Government.
What happened to the Journalists and Researchers who worked with Scallywag and its successor Spiked.!

Andrea Davison went on to expose arms to Iraq and was an intelligence adviser to the Trade and Industry Select Committee on Arms to Iraq and gave evidence in secret to Lord Justice Scott's Inquiry into Arms to Iraq. Illness caused by her work in Iraq meant she had to retire from front line work and so she carried on working in the background until she was set-up by Cameron's Conservative Government and wrongly convicted in July 2012. Andrea is now a refugee in South America and is believed to be writing a book with a famous American Author.

Open letter from Ishtars Gate to Lord McAlpine which sums it up:- Dear Lord McAlpine,
Your lawyer was on the radio yesterday, threatening that all those on Twitter who so much as mentioned your name in connection with paedophilia would be sued for libel. So I thought I'd do a little digging ... and I have to say, within a matter of hours, I'd found what I was looking for. So I wonder how much more a dedicated team of lawyers would find? And now I've found this damning piece of evidence, I understand why your lawyer is recommending that you settle out of court for an apology and an agreed sum of money, rather than have the spotlight shone on your life and your past.
Well, sir, you've already managed to extort £185,000 out of the BBC in that way .... but there's no way you'll be getting any more from tweeters, or anyone else. In fact, by the time you've finished reading this post, if you have any sense, you'll be packing your bags and disappearing off the scene again fast.
So here's the case for the defence: Read More
