-'WHACKY' IS 'NOT AMUSED' -

Several witnesses have claimed they have seen Goudie with Whacky both in Pattaya and Koh Samui, or at least they say; that’s who Goudie says it is. After Whacky leaves a pub, Goudie, from Falkirk, gets on to Wikipedia and tells people ‘That’s who you have been talking to”.
I have always taken these rumours with a pinch of salt. Whacky is also known as the ‘Tartan Pimpernel’ outranking our own ‘Mangus Evans’ by miles. He is one Britain's top ten villains. One would have thought Whacky would have known Goudie was a man to avoid particularly as he has a reputation for 'exposing' his clients when they fire him.
20 years on the run
He has been spotted in South Africa and more recently his name has been linked to the Russian mafia. You can read about him here and here and here.

But it seems odd that, if that is the case, he has not been picked up. So it is clearly not the well known 'Hacienda Beach Resort'.
But recently two witnesses came to light who were very convincing. Both however do report back that Whacky is livid and has cut all ties with Goudie, formerly Brian Goldie, not least because instead of lowering his profile Goudie has well and truly stuck his head over the parapet.
It appears that Whacky's association with Goudie had been established after Goudie had brought a very influential politician to the table - a prerequisite if one is planning to build in Thailand's protected forest.
Jail break bid
He also faces fraud charges brought by a Briton John Jepson who gave used his services on the basis that he was a bona fide barrister and Scottish advocate.
Unconfirmed reports say that ‘Whacky’ is still very active, an easy enough thing to do nowadays thousands of miles away from the action given new technology, and hand carried monies are coming into Thailand via Pattaya.

On the first occasion McDonald was floored with a right hook from an estate agent. On the second occasion he was head-butted by a buyer.
That seems to be becoming a frequent occurence in Hua Hin.
But people might think that Thailand’s rather ‘iffy’ Tartan army was coming apart at the seams.
Another Macdonald, John Macdonald, a former Glasgow taxi driver, and bar owner and who was previously Goudie’s running boy, is all but out of action after a car accident in Pattaya. He no longer turns up at Soi 9 Police station in Pattaya to salute his boss, Niels Colov, the former Copenhagen pimp, who runs the Pattaya Police volunteers.
Readers here will recall that he acquired the pub and company of former Ulster drugs dealer Jimmy Halliday by getting him to assign power of attorney to him while Jimmy was dying of the flesh eating disease – necrotising fasciitis contracted in Nong Plalai Prison, Banglamuang.
At the moment he appears to be banking on making money out of his Bang Kao Bay resort project on Koh Samui, which is at the moment a bunch of artists’ drawings. He boasts the project will have a marina. Backers in the project were not impressed at how he launched the project with a very unimpressive website. Today he is still raging after we placed pictures of the project up on this site with a ‘Buyer Beware’ warning.
In fact he has placed lodged another copyright complaint to Google. He gave us the brochure – what does he expect? You can see the pictures here.
