Scottish minister condemns psychic Sally Morgan’s husband for homophobic tirade

Nick Duffy October 11, 2014

Scottish government minister Roseanna Cunningham has condemned the husband of psychic Sally Morgan, after footage emerged of him shouting homophobic slurs at a man for handing out skeptical leaflets at her show.

Ms Morgan is one of the UK’s best known psychics, and has had TV shows on ITV and Sky, in addition to her theatre tours.

 

Mark Tilbrook released a clip this week in which he is approached by John Morgan – Sally’s husband and tour manager – for distributing leaflets which allegedly debunk part of her performance.

In the clip, Mr Morgan warns: “One day you’re going to be lifted, and you’ll disappear somewhere. You’re a poof as well, we know all about your life.”

Another member of the psychic’s staff approaches Mr Tilbrook, and the pair say: “You know, you look pale. Are you on drugs or has someone shagged you too much? One of your boyfriends been up your arse?

“You are a fairly little gay man. Little gayboy you are.”

Scotland’s Minister for Community Safety and Legal Affairs, Roseanna Cunningham, has condemned the “unpleasant” act, ahead of a performance by the psychic in Perth later this month.

The Scottish National Party MSP told Kaleidoscot: “Going on the evidence in the clip I have seen, John Morgan is clearly an extremely unpleasant and belligerent individual.

“I would suggest to him that, if he does come to Perth, he should remember and respect the right of others to protest and to free speech, and to be aware that threats of violence could well be construed as criminal behaviour.”

Ms Cunningham herself led a campaign to block gay couples from adopting in 2006, and votes against civil partnerships and equal marriage.

Sally Morgan – who claims she can talk to the dead and see the future – has distanced herself from the incident, saying she was “not aware of the comments made in this video”.
