The truth of the matter is that the McCanns did lie

July 28, 2008

The McCanns, through their family and friends, informed the media that Apartment 5A had been broken into and that during the course of this break in the shutters were jemmied up and damaged in the process.

Because so many told this same story, it cannot be said that they all made this up, the story had to come from one source, which is what the family and friends said themselves, and that source was the McCanns.

Imagine for a moment that you come back to your apartment, after going out at 8.30pm, at 10.pm, and your 3 year old daughter has gone missing. One of your first reactions would be to sound the alarm. Which is what Kate McCann did.

It is clear that there is no sign of a break in. However, the shutter has been raised from the inside and the window has been opened from the inside, and Kate McCann’s fingerprints are all over where they have been opened.

Given that there was no sign of a break in, the McCanns sought to create the impression that there had been a break in. This is like the magician or illusionist on stage trying to create an impression to fool the audience into believing they had seen something happen when in fact it was a trick.

Madeleine was the subject of a vanishing act. The McCanns claimed that an abductor broke into Apartment 5A and Madeleine vanished.

A “family friend Jill Renwick told GMTV the McCanns were certain that Madeleine has been abducted”.

“They were just watching the hotel room and going back every half-hour and the shutters had been broken open and they had gone into the room and taken Madeleine“.

However, in the same media report, quoting the Ocean Club manager:

“Mr Hill said that despite the report by a family friend that the shutters to the couple’s apartment were broken, there was no sign that anyone had forced their way in while the McCanns ate at the tapas restaurant 200 yards away”.

The lie here is not that Madeleine is missing. The deception is the McCanns claiming that there had been a break in at Apartment 5A, when there clearly had not been a break in. If the McCanns claimed that whoever broke into the apartment was responsible for Madeleine’s disappearance, and the apartment was not broken into but was just a story made up by the McCanns, then it follows that the McCanns are responsible for Madeleine’s disappearance. If this is not the case, then the McCanns are free to offer an explanation. They are no longer arguidos, they are no longer subjected to the Portuguese secrecy laws, they can no longer hide behind the “We cannot go into details”.

The police, PJ, and even Clarence Mitchell, has stated that there was no evidence of a break in.

But, the fact remains that the McCanns told a lie about there being a break in.

What is the truth behind why the McCanns told this lie?

Vanishing Point

May 30, 2008

This report from 4 May 2007 states: “Three-year-old Madeleine McCann vanished from her parents’ rented apartment in the Algarve last night as they dined nearby“.

However, whilst it is accepted that Madeleine was 3 when she disappeared, it is not accepted that she vanished whilst her parents dined out, nor is it accepted that the Tapas Bar is nearby. At first glance the report appears to be stating facts. As Kate McCann has said, hindsight is a wonderful thing.

It is quite possible that Madeleine vanished earlier on in the evening, before Gerry and Kate McCann went out to meet their friends for drinks and a meal at the Tapas Bar. There again, Madeleine could have vanished when Gerry went to do his check so only Kate was still at the Tapas Bar. Some commenters have even suggested that Madeleine could have disappeared on 2 May 2007. But, for now, I am sticking with 3 May 2007 as the Vanishing Point.

Gerry McCann has stated that drinking and dining out in the Tapas Bar was just like being in the back garden. It is not as nearby as that. I think it was approximately 200 yards away, and the apartment was not properly visible from either the Tapas Bar nor from where the Tapas 9 were sitting within the Tapas Bar.

It may have been the case, as a neighbour stated, that the McCanns were protective of Madeleine in Rothley. But, they were certainly not protective of her in Praia Da Luz on 3 May 2007. Besides, the McCanns had only been in Rothley 6 months. And with the McCanns appearances can be deceptive.

I think this next quote is telling: “Mr Hill said that despite the report by a family friend that the shutters to the couple’s apartment were broken, there was no sign that anyone had forced their way in while the McCanns ate at the tapas restaurant 200 yards away”.

“But family friend Jill Renwick told GMTV the McCanns were certain that Madeleine has been abducted”.

“They were just watching the hotel room and going back every half-hour and the shutters had been broken open and they had gone into the room and taken Madeleine,” she said.

“They went out about eight, went back in at nine, they were fine, went back in at 10 and she was gone”.

Very early on the McCanns version of events, in relation to the so-called break-in, was being challenged by John Hill the Ocean Club manager. The police and PJ also found no evidence of any break-in. However, this was the McCanns version of events and they were sticking to it. Roll out family friend Jill Renwick to reinforce the McCanns version of events.

Interesting that she should say that the McCanns were checking every half-hour, and yet going out at 8 and checking at 9 and then again at 10 is every hour not half hour! Also interesting that she said “they had taken Madeleine”. At least one version of events claims that Kate had said “They have taken Madeleine”. Perhaps, it is a reference to the version of events that a gang of paedophiles had been at work?

In any event, it’s “the McCanns were certain that Madeleine has been abducted”, which is interesting.

I would say that the McCanns were not certain of any such thing. They have to stick to that like super glue. It’s their explanation why their daughter has vanished apparently into thin air. But this is not a disappearing stage act. The McCanns are acting though. When it came to the questions, ‘what are we going to do?’ and ‘what are we going to say?’. Hey Presto! Play the paedo card and rely upon the paedophobia to make it believable.

The McCanns were disappointed when the police did not immediately go looking for this single paedophile or paedophile gang. They were searching for a missing girl who may have wandered off by herself. And, the McCanns claimed that the police were not doing anything at all. The police had to look at other possibilities.

The McCanns were certain that Madeleine had not simply just wandered off. But, they were not certain of an abduction. They knew exactly what had happened to Madeleine.
