‘ Really windy that whole week’.

No it wasn’t. No one mentions it being ‘really windy’ on the 3rd or indeed any other night that week. If it was I doubt they would have been sitting out under what was basically a tent.
Moral Guilt
Detractors of the work of our British Police in bringing criminals to justice generally ignore the important distinction between moral proof and legal evidence of guilt. In not a few cases that are popularly classed with 'unsolved mysteries of crime,' the offender is known, but evidence is wanting. If, for example, in- a recent murder case of special notoriety and interest,* certain human remains had not been found in a cellar, a great crime would have been catalogued among `Police failures'; and yet, even without the evidence which sent the murderer to the gallows, the moral proof of his guilt would have been full and clear.

I refer you to your post about "that night". Gerry was not talking about the night Madeleine went missing.



Gerry certainly is. ‘ the wind was blowing hard that night and the shutters were creaking’.

Funny how not one person mentions this howling gale in their statements.

I got to know Gerald McCann and Kate Healy on Saturday, May 5, 2007.

I would describe my relationship with them in totally clinical terms.

I provided them counselling help with regards to their emotional state provoked by the fact that they were separated from their daughter Madeleine.

I spoke with Gerry and Kate very early in the morning on the 5th of May, 2007.

Our services were requested by the Mark Warner agency.
I travelled specifically to speak to them in person, and with the family and agency functionaries.

Kate and Gerry had been awake for two nights when I got to know them.

The remit of Operation Grange is to investigate ...  "(as if the abduction occurred in the UK)"

Why do you think they have this “basically a tent” thing then?

Passing a newsagents yesterday the Star had this headline.

"Madeleine McCann snatcher WILL strike again says top cop"



What was it Rowley said.

"There are odd headlines and odd stories in newspapers on a regular basis and most of those are nonsense".

Headlines are designed to stand out, catch your eye (it worked didn’t it?) but often don’t reflect the content.
“But former Metropolitan Police counter-terrorism detective David Videcette said every lead officers have about the case should be followed up in case the abductor strikes again.

He told Good Morning Britain: “If she had been abducted then we need to catch whoever did it.

“However much money we spend on this case we’ll save on the next case if we catch that person.’”

A British Citizen was abducted by a stranger while abroad.  This cannot be allowed to go unchallenged.
All British Citizens are entitled to protection from Agents of The Crown while travelling on a British Passport.  This alone is sufficient to justify the cost of Operation Grange.
Hopefully anyone else thinking of trying this on will think twice.  Don't mess with British Citizens.

I’ve just listened to the programme Gerry made and found it incredibly moving and sincere.  He speaks at length about Madeleine, what she was like, what their father/daughter relationship was like and about the way her loss has affected both him and his family so very deeply.  Throughout the interview I tried to imagine that this man had callously disposed of his daughter and found it impossible to do so.  I wonder how others are able?  Do they imagine Gerry is such a master actor and deceiver that he was able to hoodwink the Radio 4 team that put this programme together?  Or do they imagine that the Beeb team put the programme on air, believing in their hearts that this man knows more than he’s letting on and is telling great fat fibs, hoping that Gerry’s revelations will lead to some clues as to what really happened?

Oh, and he didn’t say he wasn’t sure if the stars were still up on Madeleine’s bedroom ceiling, he said they were still there the last time he looked.

Ah, so we now bring jingoism into play.
It is a lack of contrition that makes a person who has done wrong fixate on being proven blameless.

Or maybe not -   11 years and still no solution.
