OK a version of the truth???

Or bad fiction.
You don't almost think of doing something, you either think about it or you don't
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 -   Into year 13 and still no solution.

I've always split the McCanns.  I believe Kate told the truth as she knew it and Gerry well I've never fully trusted him.
I'm a bit unsure what I can say as a moderator.  So I'm OK with that.

There is almost saying something.  You might think up something pearl of wisdom but decide to let it slide.
Whether that is almost thought of something who knows.  Maybe it a male thing?

Where's her upset about that critical truthful decision that cost her child so dear?

Congratulations! You appear to be the only one who is able to produce evidence rather than speculation.

Is that meant to be taken as a tongue-in-cheek comment? :)

I'm certainly not the only one, of any persuasion, who tries to find cites.

I was indeed. I also kept quiet about this;

A little later, near the sun-loungers at the Tapas end of the swimming pool, some of our group were discussing whether to cancel our dinner booking in the evening and take the kids to the Millennium instead. Weíd heard that another couple weíd met had tried unsuccessfully to book a table at the Tapas restaurant and we wondered whether it was fair of us to be taking over the place. Although the restaurant was accepting other reservations, our party of nine occupied most of the available places and I, for one, felt rather guilty about that. However, when someone pointed out that weíd be gone by Saturday whereas this family was staying on for another week, it didnít seem quite so unreasonable, and we decided to stick with our original plan. {madleine Kate McCann}

That's fair of you.

I don't see what the fuss is about for some posters. Whether Gerry thought that there was an issue as to whether they'd get in or not, there was apparently a discussion as to whether they ought to let others dine there that night and go to the Millenium.

Not sure if someone else had considered a night in, or not. Kate? Not sure.

For me, I found the main point to be sadly ironic: if they had ended up choosing other dining arrangements that evening, they would have been with the kids.

You were the only one who produced the relevant cite though. weren't you?

Kate McCann: "our group were discussing whether to cancel our dinner booking in the evening."
Gerry McCann: "I think the worst thing is.. we kinda...sigh... almost thought about not going. And erm did. We weren't sure we were going to get into the tapas, REMEMBER?"


Is that the sound of a barrel being scraped?

I think the only issue at stake here is establishing the concept that Gerry has potentially lied about a fundamental fact. I'm not convinced it has any relevance beyond that. And even then, well, we all lie, so it only establishes that.
Unless I'm reading this wrong.

Her knowledge on the case is a real asset to the forum, don't you think?
I think it was rather deceitful of her to keep quiet to try and preserve the credibility of her ďteamĒ.  Presumably had Carana not posted this confirmation that Gerry was not lying, youíd all still be convinced he did.  Oh hang on, in the face of the evidence to the contrary you still are!  @)(++(*

'She ( Kate) did, she brought it up and that she, I mean, this is awful in retrospect as well, she asked what my opinion was on, erm, tut, on whether they were okay leaving the, the doors unlocked, because she was saying 'Is it better that if Madeleine wakes up she can get out and find us or', erm, 'or locking it and, you know, finding that we're not there and the door's locked if she woke up', because Madeleine had woken up, what I thought was the night before. Erm, tut, and it was in that context really, just asking, you know, what I thought. So it was obviously something that was on her mind a bit, huh'.

So you think I'm decietful and you think you know why? I think you're barking up the wrong trees. 

Carana's post didn't confirm that Gerry wasn't lyiing. He said;

"we weren't sure we were going to get into the Tapas; remember?"

Did anyone else say that? No, they said they thought of cancelling their booking.

But you did do well here.  Take it as a big compliment.
