Probably because at the moment they are not allowed..........

He is but they aren't.  In Australia I mean.  How does that work?

It all depends on Mr Edgar's motivation and the targeted audience would you not say?

Absolutely.
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 wonder if Dave Edgar is still employed by Madeleine's fund.  Because of that I take everything he says with a pinch of salt.

I wonder if this article will now be shared by the UK media.   Anyone want a bet?

if you look at what Edgar actually said....

Last week a retired UK detective claimed Maddie, who would now be 15 years old, was probably still somewhere in Portugal, and could even remain held captive in the small Algarve coastal town where she vanished more than 11 years ago.

Whats wring with it....Maddie probably wasnt taken out of portugal......and could even still be alive. Far more likely than she died in an accident covered up by her parents...imo

Martin Townsend seems to have a bit of a history when it comes to playing a bit part in getting things totally wrong as far as Madeleine and her parents are concerned.

How it is possible to headline a non story of a marital split from a father going back to work while his wife stays at home? ... seems Martin is your man.

It doesn't surprise me in the slightest that he and Mark Saunokonoko appear to have 'found' each other ... in my opinion neither baulks at a "cynical attempt to attract readers".


Disgrace of Sunday Express headline
Roy Greenslade

Sun 20 Jan 2008

Of all the nasty headlines that the Daily and Sunday Express have published about the Madeleine McCann mystery, none is quite as nasty - and blatantly inaccurate - at the one it ran on its front page today: McCANNS SPLIT BY AGONY OF MADDY.

There is nothing in the story to justify this disgraceful headline. The only split it mentions is that Kate McCann stays at home while her husband, Gerry, goes to work. Everything else in the article is speculation based on quotes from anonymous friends who say that the couple are continuing to go through agony.

Yet this is what the Sunday Express editor, Martin Townsend , has the bare-faced cheek to say in his column today: "At every level of our society, and in every area of our lives, fair play and common sense seem to have evaporated in the past decade."

He attributes those failings to "Labour rule" and accuses the prime minister of "spectacular, breathtaking hypocrisy."

Well, Martin, it takes one to know one. That headline is a cynical attempt to attract readers. It is, according to your own story, without foundation. I just hope the Press Complaints Commission decide that enough is enough on this matter and decide to take it up. For once, it might be justified to entertain a third party complaint. And here it is.

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

And cruel.
As cruel as being an ex-policeman wedded to the idea that Madeleine is dead?
