So if there is still information being actively followed on Madeleine's behalf do you think it appropriate to apparently victimise her further by pulling the plug on the the money the Home Office is able to allocate to her case?

Do you know whether there is anything that the police can actively do? They have now spent £millions and years getting precisely nowhere it would seem (at least to me).

What is interesting to get back on topic is the blog on the HO site, it makes no mention of a search,only the operation concerning the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

Indeed. they are not searching for MBM.  they are only concerned with an investigation. AND it looks like they have investigated and came up with.....well  no evidence of anything to charge anyone with anything.

SO go back 11 years and 12 million quid and  what do we have? no evidence of anything to charge anyone with anything.

There waa an active search up until the time of the digs in 2014,by the Autumn of 2015 the manpower tasked to OG was massively reduced from upward of 30 to just 4,obviously funding was cut then,its hard to see just what searching is  taking place now.

What does one do concerning the disappearance of a missing child?  Doesn't one look for her?  Which in my opinion is precisely what Scotland Yard have been doing since they opened Madeleine's case in 2013.

If the police have asked for more money and been denied it do you think there is some interdepartmental wrangling about financing going on to the detriment of a missing child whose case is still an active one?

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

So if funding has now finally stopped let's see what mccs do ....with there own money....

Now it seems SY have found nothing....back to the start where PJ shelved the case....

One of the reasons mccs being uncooperative   ....in my opinion....

How long did The PJ expect to have?  The first few months with Amaral in charge found nothing to implicate The McCanns.

No, because he wasn't given the chance.....

SY have found nothing ...have they....to say maddie was abducted...dead end..

They have had over five years...and 12 million at there disposal...

At least GA had a brain ...wasn't frightened of the mccs ....or anyone else ...

Spoke his mind ...a policeman's mind ...not pussyfooting like SY.... in my opinion....

£12 million and 7 yrs and still SY can't come up with any thing which resembles Amaral was on the wrong track imo of course,(although its seems as if qualifying a post with  imo has fallen by the way side).

More time than he had.....he was in the prosses of having smiths flown over.....

How long do SY want ...is more the question ...

How much more money...do they want ..to throw at nothing...

The "if" and the question mark "?" gave me a huge clue.  Are you being disingenuous, or did you miss it?

Not sure the point you are making Brietta. Are you just asking questions for the sake of it ? I don’t believe OG is ending, although I do think that this is the end of one phase.
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 have found an interesting FOI answer by the Metropolitan Police

2. For each subsequent request for funds please state:

(a) The date on which application for was made for further funding=


  This is not held by the MPS.  We do not apply for funding, money is allocated by the Home Office.


https://www.met.police.uk/SysSiteAssets/foi-media/metropolitan-police/disclosure_2016/september_2016/information-rights-unit---funding-for-operation-grange

So do the Metropolitan Police apply for funding or not?  The Home Office thinks they do.

We have received and are considering a request from the MPS to extend funding for Operation Grange until the end of March 2019.

The Portuguese media seem to think OG has died with a whimper rather than a bang.

Operation Grange - the controversial British police investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann - has reached the ‘official closure’ of its funding.

At least this is the version of reports circulating in Portugal this week.

Seems all those Team McCann stories planted in the press and Gerry’s appearance on Radio 4 paid off then eh?  After all, asn’t the winding down of Operation Grange considered to be behind the recent flurry of media activity?  LOL again.

The press stories have little to do with finding Madeleine but everything to do with the McCann's ego imo.
