The parents must have known that with the case shelved in Portugal and SY having no jurisdiction there if a review was granted it would be toothless. However it would make people think ‘well if they were guilty why would they have asked for a review ‘.

TBH I don’t think the parents believed a review would be granted and when Rebecca Brooks suggested the Sun spearhead a campaign in conjunction with the book serialisation to force the PM’s hand what could they say ?

So why ask for one in the first place?  Why relentlessly try and keep the spotlight on your own crimes?  Surely by asking for a review there is a real risk you will get one?  It’s madness!

Your post illustrates exactly why someone would ask for a review.

Thank you.   

They must have been over the moon at such help, but Cameron seemed very much in support of the review to me.  Are you sure he was "forced" ?   Cos it didn't seem that way to me.

Erm?   Are we understanding the same language ?   Your answer doesn't make sense to me.

I think the idea was to shine a spotlight on the mishandling of crimes against children and the mistreatment of the McCanns by the authorities and by the media.

There are lessons to be learned for the future, in terms of both the handling of crimes against children and the
treatment we have received from the authorities and the media, and if some good can come out of our
experience, it is that the mistakes made will not be repeated.[madeleine]

If that's what Kate McCann was expecting from the review she's doomed to be disappointed in my opinion.

So you didn't watch Leveson then sadie.  I had no interest in the case at the time but I did with the Leveson Enquiry and hacking.
