Daily Mail shambolic reporting of McCann case

The Daily Mail headline is not news, its old reporting, and it is not sensational nor is it as revealing as claimed in the misleading headline. Rather, it reveals more about the poor editorship and intended audience than it does for facts.

Revealed: what happened the night Madeleine went missing

“An investigation…” what investigation, conducted by who?

“The Mail’s sister newspaper, the Evening Standard, has spoken to a series of sources close to the McCanns and their friends who have revealed details of the events on the night”.

This hardly constitutes an independent investigation which is based upon the biased opinions of those within the McCann camp.

The McCanns “are adamant Madeleine was abducted and are angered by vicious smears – published by the Portuguese media – that the McCanns and their friends are somehow complicit in her disappearance”.

The McCanns and their friends to greater or lesser degrees are somehow complicit in Madeleine’s disappearance. The meal and drinks at the Tapas bar was designed as an alibi.

“One source says he believes Madeleine was taken between 9.05pm and 9.15pm and that the patio windows at the rear of the apartment had been shut but unlocked on the night so the McCanns could check on their children more easily.

He said: “It could not be anything other than abduction. There is no doubt in anybody’s mind that the girl Jane Tanner saw being carried away was Madeleine””.

“But the source is adamant that none of the dining companions was away from the table at the tapas bar long enough not only to kill the little girl but then to dump the body.

The source said: “If it was one of the friends then it would have to be all of them to ensure a cover up. That’s just plain nonsense””.

Jane Tanner did not arrive at the Tapas bar until 9pm. She must have left 10 minutes later if she saw the abductor as she claims to have done.

    Factors point to 1 May after parents were sent to deal with Madeleine’s crying for 1 hr and 15 mins after around 3 hours drinking time with their mates.
    Probably not best pleased and humiliated. Twins still slept through their sister’s distress and none of them were heard crying when left alone all other evenings. Kate worked as a hospital anaethetist prior to becoming a GP.
    Were the children routinely sedated and, if so, was Madeleine’s dose overlooked or non-effective on l May ?

    The children, according to Kate, were ‘put to sleep’ at 7.30 p.m. They were locked in alone thereafter. It took time for the McCanns to recover from the ‘incident’, scrub away clues and plan a staged abduction with Tapas friends. The incident definitely didn’t occur on 3 May; timescale forbids it. Cold calculated planning takes a lot of thought and time ……
