Candour is a British far right-wing magazine founded and edited by A. K. Chesterton until his death in 1973.

It was founded in 1953 as the successor to Truth newspaper of which he had been deputy editor. Truth had been acquired by the Staples Press, who insisted on a new editorial policy and as a result Chesterton resigned.

Chesterton issued a statement "Truth has been murdered" and asked his readers for backing for a new journal in the style of the old Truth.

The initial response was not enthusiastic and the idea might have been still-born had it not been for funds received from R. K. Jeffery, a Chile-based British millionaire. Further backing then followed and Candour was born, with the first issue appearing on 30 October 1953.

Candour was intended to "serve as a link between Britons all over the world in protest against the surrender of their world heritage."[attribution needed]

After Chesterton's death, Candour was edited by Rosine de Bounevialle until her own death in 1999.

It continues to be published irregularly, with the latest issue printed in March 2015.[1]
