Has interest in the Maddie McCann case finally petered out?
« on: February 25, 2019, 03:16:14 PM »
With no new incentives in the offing and nothing whatsoever being reported by Scotland Yard it would appear that the Maddie McCann case has at last reached a point where interest is at an all-time low.

Is this the end for the investigation?

Almost certainly not.  But nothing much is happening at the moment, so Brexit and ISIS Brides are more interesting.

I believe everything. And l believe nothing.
I suspect everyone. And l suspect no one.

Or maybe not -   Into year 13 and still no solution.

I think it is exactly as it should be.

The police are investigating a crime and when they have finished doing that we will be told the outcome.
The remit of Operation Grange is to investigate ...  "(as if the abduction occurred in the UK)"

It is indeed as it should be. The constant reporting was rarely based on anything the police said or did. The soources lay elsewhere. Those sources have dried up; mostly since the Portuguese Supreme Court verdict.

I wouldn't hold your breath Brietta.  Only the PJ will solve this one and they've lost interest imo.

That is the problem. Therre never has been a  proper debate on this thread. All snipeing and name calling-pathetic!

There are other places offering a platform for the case to be discussed by educated adults.  15 People who I know used to come to read have stopped. they said the censorship was disgraceful [they also used other words].  lol

According to you there is only sniping and name-calling here so one assumes it is at least partly for these you keep returning to this forum.  Anyone intent on having an “educated, serious discussion” about how the parents must be involved has plenty of places to post without having their views challenged  so there is obviously something about this place that you enjoy.
