McGraw Widow's New Dad-In-Law Was Cop...
THE man set to wed crime lord Tam McGraw's widow is the son of a police inspector.
Margaret McGraw revealed at the weekend that she plans to marry family friend Jim McMinimee.
But she didn't mention that her future father-in-law worked for decades catching crooks in Glasgow.
McMinimee's dad James senior, now 77, was a respected officer who rose to the rank of detective inspector.
Underworld associates of The Licensee are horrified at his widow's wedding plans. One close family friend said last night: "If Tam hadn't been cremated, he'd be spinning in his grave right now if he knew his wife was shacked up with McMinimee.
"The fact that he's the son of a police inspector makes it even more galling."
Margaret and McMinimee say they were a couple for years before McGraw's death and claim he turned a blind eye to their affair.
But our source insisted: "If Tam had known, he would have blown McMinimee's f****** head off. You don't mess with The Licensee's missus and get away with it, even if your dad was a police inspector.
"Margaret was Tam's one true love. They were married for 35 years and he worshipped the ground she walked on."
McMinimee, 49, was a business associate of McGraw and attended his funeral.
He stood in the background as Margaret, known as The Jeweller because of her love of gold trinkets, led the mourners.
McMinimee's father would have been aware of McGraw during the 1980s as The Licensee built his £30million criminal empire on drug-dealing and extortion A gangland insider said: "McGraw was a well known police grass.
"McGraw would grass up drug dealers and give specific details to make him look good.
"Tam didn't have friends, just business associates. He didn't trust anyone and he was right not to."
Margaret, 55, says she got together with McMinimee after his own wife, Deborah, died.
The couple plan to wed in June, less than a year after a heart attack killed 55-year-old McGraw. But relatives of the Godfather are furious over the romance.
A McGraw family source said: "Tam's bed isn't even cold and McMinimee has jumped into it.
"If Tam had been alive he would have killed Jim on the spot.
"Tam always had girlfriends and Margaret accepted it, but we'd never have expected this from her. McMinimee is a creep who's in there for Tam's money."
