Sun Lies Over Ronnie Kray’s Gay ‘Fat Poof’ Jibe

by | 5th, August 2011

“EAST End gangster Ronnie Kray confessed to being bisexual in secret recordings,” reports The Sun. The story is not Kray’s bisexuality but the recording itself – the property of writer Robin McGibbon whose book The Krays: Their Life Behind Bars was released last month.

The report ends with:

“[Kray] shot dead fellow gangster George Cornell in an East End pub after being called a ‘fat poof’.” Not according to McGibbon’s taped interview with the psycho which you can listen to here. After McGibbon prompts the subject with: “A lot of lies have been told about the Cornell thing…”

Kray replies:

“[Cornell] never called me a poof in his life, I’d have killed him then and there. Lies and rubbish.”

Kray killed him for other reasons to do with threats – I’m inclined to believe this.

Pity the churnalistic Sun didn’t bother to listen to the tape.
