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.

Will Mrs McCann be in line for the same?
I believe everything. And l believe nothing.
I suspect everyone. And l suspect no one.
I gather the facts, examine the clues... and before   you know it, the case is solved!"

Or maybe not -   11 years and still no solution.

I think she’d actually have to have done something to further the cause of missing people.

Of course Mr Lawrence has been supportive of  the McCanns in the past too. A thoroughly deserved award.

I’m sure you’ll be the first to congratulate when here work with Missing People is similarly recognised.

Out of interest why was a thread about Claudia Lawrence’s father’s work with missing people authorised on a forum about Madeleine McCann?

I considered it "goading" as in goading another member.  Even though you and Faithlilly have this thing going on it must still be within the rules.
What are you doing to find Madeleine?

Perhaps you could explain the relevance of this thread to the Madeleine McCann forum while you’re here.

Surely anybody who furthers the interests of missing people has a place on the Madeleine McCann board ?
