If the govt can squander dozens and hundreds of millions in some cases, it can spare the odd ten million for this...the money is there, it needs the will and I dont see why it should not be there
I remember this unfolding back in 1991, and I thought it did recieve a similar amount of attention and speculation as Madeleine McCann but in the pre-internet days it wasnt kept in the public conscience for as long.
The thing is, if they spent millions of pounds and found Ben alive, Isnt it just opening a can of worms for Ben and his adopted family. The bloke is 26 now and most likely has only ever known one family.
Can they justify spending millions on quarter century old missing persons case to give the family closure? Im not so sure now...
I notice people percieve Kate McCann as cold and detached recently when talking about Madeleine, but to my mind she is being pragmatic about her chances of a happy ending and living in the real world.
