Libel actions are no indication the McCanns are innocent

October 16, 2008

The McCanns claimed that they had abandoned their 3 children under 4 years of age Home Alone whilst they went out for a binge drinking session and a meal at the Tapas Bar. Asked why they had neglected their children the McCanns replied that they believed it was safe to do so. This takes some believing that they believed that. Given their professional status, and given that not one entry on the internet states such conduct is safe.

All too frequently the parents or carer cites an abductor or stranger danger to explain away the disappearance of a child. The McCanns are no different in this respect. They say they are convinced that this is what happened. What special insight do the McCanns possess? None whatsoever. They say they were not present at the crucial time.

This is rather too convenient. The McCanns are claiming that being at the Tapas Bar with their 7 friends provides them with an alibi.

However, this is based upon the assumption that all 3 children were safe and accounted for when the McCanns left the apartment. This is not the case. There is no independent witness to corroborate their version of events.

Therefore, it is legitimate to cast doubts upon the McCanns being innocent witnesses in this mystery.

The case against the McCanns is compelling

August 20, 2008

I will write this slowly for those who have difficulty grasping the facts.

1. Madeleine is missing.

2. Kate and Gerry McCann offer their explanation for Madeleine’s disappearance, an abductor must be responsible. They point to what they claim is a break-in to support their proposition.

3. The McCanns were in no position to advance an explanation. They were out of sight and sound of the apartment, eating and drinking with their friends at the Tapas bar. They had left, at least, the 2 year old twins Home Alone. They claimed all 3 children were asleep in the apartment when they went out for the evening. They claimed that they thought it was safe to leave 3 children under 4 years of age Home Alone.

4. There was no break-in. The McCanns change their story, they admit to leaving the apartment unlocked. Why did they claim that there had been a break-in? It has to be a cover story to conceal an event. Madeleine’s disappearance. The last people to see Madeleine alive were Kate and Gerry McCann. They claim to have answered all questions. This is a lie. They claim to have fully co-operated with the police. This is a lie. Their claim that they thought it was safe is a lie.

5. Justice for Madeleine requires a fair hearing, let us hear the truth, the whole truth, and nothing less than the truth.

6. The case against the McCanns is compelling.

McCanns: A web of deceit

July 17, 2008

“A lie told often enough becomes truth” – Vladimir Lenin.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State” – Joseph Goebbels.

The Guardian is supposed to have a good reputation for intelligent and factual reporting. We have this headline from 5 May 2007:

Tapas for two … then parents’ nightmare began

It creates the impression that the story starts with a meal, and then the tragedy happens. What if the story began a little while earlier? Let’s say, for argument’s sake, between 6 and 8pm?

The article has a subheading:

Police hunt three-year-old believed abducted from holiday apartment

Who believed Madeleine was abducted?

But by the time Mr McCann picked up the phone to his sister in Dumbarton the thread of hope that Maddy had simply climbed out of the window and wandered off had been eclipsed by the growing certainty that she had been snatched while he and his wife ate tapas just 100 yards away within the holiday complex“.

A search of the immediate area had failed to find Madeleine had simply just wandered off. Therefore, it is said, because nobody wanted to voice the supposedly unthinkable, that is, that the parents might have been in some way responsible for Madeleine’s disappearance, the planted seed becomes a growing certainty in some minds.

“A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes” – Mark Twain.

“The telephone rang at around 11pm at Trish Cameron’s home near Glasgow. She picked it up to hear the voice of her younger brother. “He was distraught, breaking his heart,” Mrs Cameron said. “He said: ‘Madeleine’s been abducted, she’s been abducted.'”

The article continues: “On Thursday night the McCanns went out after 8pm, having put their three children into their pyjamas and seen them fall asleep in their bedroom in the apartment“. Where is the supporting evidence that all 3 of their children were in their pyjamas and asleep in their bedroom? What if only 2 of the children were actually asleep?

The article continues: “They weren’t out for long, and they could see the apartment from the restaurant” said Brian Healy, Madeleine’s maternal grandfather. This comes across as being defensive and protective. What constitutes a long time? Leaving 2 year old twins, Home Alone, even for a few minutes could be construed as being too long a period. Child safety experts state that children of this age should never be left unsupervised for any period of time, certainly not between 30 minutes and 2 hours. The apartment block can be seen from the Tapas bar, but Apartment 5A from where the Tapas 9 were seated visibilty was very poor.

The article continues: “Mrs Cameron said the couple checked on the children every half hour; the last check was made after 9pm by Mr McCann. Some time between then and around 10pm when his wife walked into the room to find Madeleine missing, the family believes an intruder broke in and snatched the girl”.

There is quite a bit of inconsistency between the versions of whether anybody checked at all, and who checked and at what times. There is no sighting of Madeleine by anyone outside of the McCann camp since 6pm, and there is no evidence to support Gerry McCann’s claimed sighting of Madeleine at 9pm and Matthew Oldfield did not see Madeleine when he went to check at approximately 9.30pm. From just after 6pm until 10pm, when Kate McCann claims Madeleine had just vanished into thin air, only the McCanns claimed all was well in Apartment 5A. They also claimed that there had been a break in at their apartment, but this version of events was not supported by any evidence, on the contrary, there was evidence proving it not to be the case.

“A lie told often enough becomes truth” – Vladimir Lenin.

Grandfather: evidence that three-year old was snatched (Guardian 5 May 2007)

The grandfather of a three-year-old snatched from her parents’ holiday apartment in the Algarve said yesterday that there was clear evidence she had been abducted“.

And what was the substance of this so-called clear evidence?

“Gerry told me when they went back the shutters to the room were broken, they were jemmied up and she was gone,” said Mr Healy. “She’d been taken from the chalet. The door was open”.

So, what Gerry McCann claims to be the truth, is the truth. Personally, I would not call that clear evidence at all. What if there was a hidden agenda for Gerry McCann to make such a claim?

The article states: “Mark Warner, the holiday firm which runs the luxury resort, claimed last night there was no sign of a break in at the ground floor apartment overlooking the sea”.

I think it is only fair to question Gerry McCann’s version of events, given that he has been caught out telling a lie about a so-called break in. Why did he feel he needed to lie?

The article continues: “It is not right to say that they just left them,” said Mr Healy.

Doesn’t Mr Healy know the difference between right and wrong? If they didn’t just leave the twins what did they do then? We know they did precisely that, leave the twins. They went out for drinks with their friends. We don’t know what state Madeleine was left in. We don’t know whether she was still in the apartment between 6 and 9pm.

It does not matter how often the McCann camp tell the same lie that Madeleine was abducted, I for one will not accept it as the truth. They are complete opposites. The McCanns may see their lie as their friend. However, their greatest enemy is the truth. And, there are far more truth seekers out there against the McCanns.

McCanns and the death of investigative journalism

July 17, 2008

You would be forgiven for thinking investigative journalism in Britain is dead after reading Kate and Gerry McCann: Beyond the smears by David James Smith in the Sunday Times Magazine. Especially following reading, the sub-heading, in effect, like the blurb on the dust jacket of a book:

For six months David James Smith has examined the evidence surrounding the disappearance of Madeleine McCann for The Sunday Times Magazine. In this, the most comprehensive — and authoritative — investigation yet, he addresses the key issues facing Gerry and Kate as they prepare for Christmas without their daughter“.

The article begins:

“That week in Praia da Luz, the week the McCanns were made suspects in their own daughter’s “death”, I was out there talking to them and to family and friends”. That was a fatal mistake, because it becomes clear,  that the more one reads the article, that David James Smith came under the spell of the McCann spin machine and allowed himself to become hypnotised. So deeply into a trance David James Smith goes that he comes out with the following nonsense statement.

“It seems important to make it clear right away that I do not suspect the McCanns harmed Madeleine, nor do I think they disposed of their daughter’s body if, as the PJ believe, she died in an accident that night in their apartment”.

“It was the sixth day of their week’s holiday in the Algarve and they [the McCanns] were reflecting on the enjoyable time they’d had, how surprisingly easy it had been with the children”. Personally, I am not surprised given how little holiday time they actually spent with the children. All day the kids were dumped in the creche, and then left all night Home Alone whilst the McCanns indulged in binge drinking sessions with their friends!

Gerry McCann is a typical tightfisted Scots bastard who managed to get a reduction on the price of the holiday when the McCanns discovered that the Ocean Club did not provide a baby listening service. So, why did they not use this extra money to pay for a babysitter to be on the safe side? Or, there was the free dining out service, a child minding service which allows parents to enjoy a meal while their children are being looked after by qualified personnel.

“As Jane Tanner walked up the hill, she saw Gerry talking to Jes and, as she passed them, she saw ahead of her a man walking quickly across the top of the road in front of her, going away from the apartment block, heading to the outer road of the resort complex. The man was carrying a little girl who was hanging limply from his open arms. The sighting was odd, but hardly exceptional in a holiday resort”.

One of the things odd about Jane Tanner’s version of events, upon seeing Gerry McCann in the street at such close distance is why didn’t she call out “Hello!”? David James Smith fails to point out that neither Gerry McCann nor Jeremy Wilkins notices Jane Tanner. This has to call into question Jane Tanner’s credibility as a witness.

“It perhaps needs to be stated openly that all these timings and details, the way in which they weave and dovetail together, are based on witness accounts – corroborated not just by the McCann group but by others, such as Jes Wilkins – and that, despite suggestions to the contrary, there are no obvious contradictions or differences between them”. One thing about this case is the obvious contradictions. In no way can it be claimed that the accounts dovetail together. The journalist is clearly mistaking a flat pack of misfitting furniture from Ikea for a genuine Thomas Chippindale chest of drawers!

“In the McCanns’ minds now, there is no doubt Jane Tanner saw their daughter being taken, but there was so little time to talk in the first few days that it was not until Jane saw the description of Madeleine’s pyjamas in the media, around Monday or Tuesday of the following week, that she told them the little girl she had seen was wearing the same design: pink top and white bottoms with a floral design”. Wrapped up in a blanket, it was dark and there was distance, but still she saw the white and pink combination pyjamas? Yes, hindsight is a wonderful thing especially when the report in the media jogs her memory!

I must say I was rather tickled by the thought that the sniffer dogs only picked out the McCanns Renault Scenic from a line-up of cars because it had ‘Find Madeleine’ stickers plastered over its windows!

It would be Black Monday for sure if we were to learn that no criminal proceedings are to be brought against the McCanns.

McCanns win MEPs backing for abduction alert system

July 10, 2008

Gerry and Kate McCann have won the backing of MEPs for a Europe-wide child abduction alert system

I have deliberately left the following words out of the headline “which they believe could have helped find their missing daughter”, because I don’t for one minute believe that they believe anything of the sort.

Apparently, the McCanns began their campaign after discovering that border officials in Spain were not told about Madeleine’s disappearance until 12 hours after the alarm was raised by Kate McCann. I don’t know why Spanish border officials needed to be alerted in this case. It wasn’t as though there had been an abduction. It’s a simple case of the McCanns being in some way responsible for Madeleine’s death and then arranging the disposal of her body.

I think an abduction alert scheme is a good thing in Europe. However, I am repulsed at the thought it should be championed by those suspected of killing their own 3 year old daughter. Especially, when Gerry and Kate McCann had this to say about MEPs supporting their initiative: “By doing so they are helping to make Europe a safer place for children”. This from the hypocritical couple who went out binge drinking every night leaving 3 small children under 4 years of age Home Alone! And this comment: “Hopefully this will also mean that far fewer families have to suffer the pain that we are continuing to endure”.  Any pain that they are suffering is self-inflicted, and they can end it at anytime by walking into the nearest police station and confessing.
