I believe investigating an abduction that didn't happen is a massive waste of tax payers money.

12 million squid could have filled a lot of pot holes. Much more worth while imo.


it's a drop in the ocean to find a missing child.

I think Spamage was referring to the depleted resources available to Operation Grange.

Well it's obvious in the beginning they needed more officers to go through the whole investigation by the PJ.  All the sightings etc.  Now they have narrowed it down.

What's so bleedin special about Maddie?

Why isn't the same amount being spent on the search for Ben Needham for example?

And what's so special about missing children?

Why isn't the same amount being spent on the search for Suzy Lamplugh, Mary Flanagan, Claudia Lawrence, Lord Lucan or Shergar?

Narrowed it down? They're barely keeping the lights on.
They've downscaled due to budget constraints. They ran out of toner for the fax machine last month, ffs.*



*they probably didn't run out of toner.

Are there any leads for them to investigate Ben.  I don't think there is.

Suzy Lamplugh and Claudia Lawrence haven't been forgotten,  they investigate if new leads arise.

Don't know Mary Flanagan.  Lord Lucas has just been in the news again,  [brother?  I'm not sure]  of woman murdered has said he knows where he is.

When the police numbers per head are at their lowest in London for 20 years and the crime rate at its highest in over a decade - maybe, I don't know, priorities?
It's like old runaway train morality test. Depends on how utilitarian you are.

Cue another slew of 'this has nothing to do with Madeleine McCann' and 'another stick to beat K&G with'.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-51558600

7 year old Fátima Aldrighett was murdered in Mexico City recently.  Her body was found 4 days after she disappeared.

A woman thought to be between 42 and 45 walked her away from her school, an act which was seen on CCTV.  Fátima had been waiting outside her school to be picked up by her mother, but her mother was running late due to Mexico City traffic jams.

The relevant bits are these, just to get supporters up to speed.

The family has piled in, saying the police response was too slow, and that protocols were not followed.

Feminists have piled in, stating that femicide must stop.  This despite the fact that in this case police are hunting for a female.

Police offered £83,000 for the identification of the female who walked off with Fátima.  To date, AFAIK, there has been no reward offered for the mere identification of Smithman.  It's a measly £20k for a successful prosecution.

It’s almost as if you’re using the murders of children to bait McCann supporters.

Perchance OG don't think he's a resident there.

Its the official line.

The Portuguese authorities retain the lead and the Met continues to work in support of them.

I doubt very much SY would be allowed to amke a public appeal in portugal for smithman...its not tye way teh PJ work. Hopefully they are changing but in the past they seem to arrest someone and convince them they are smithman....a good beating soon helps the memory
