You click, you lose.
Agreed about Richard D Hall. His Jo Cox videos are next level.
And yes, I clicked and lost.

If you want to mistakenly think to click is to lose then i''ll have to leave you to your ignorance ...imo

i wont bother explaining why...if you don't know now you never will

my feeling is its important to look  and consider everything....but im an open minded supporter not a narrow minded sceptic...how can we dismiss what Hall says without listening to him

Yet you had already formed an opinion of Hall, but you were compelled nonetheless.
Open-minded or weak-willed?

is it possible to have a discussion based on fact rather than what you think is fact...

This is more like it; the existential.
But was it a rhetorical, baited question?
Have you already illicited the response you craved? Did you crave a response at all?
Was it a musing typed as an affirmation, a cajolement to lull me in and I draw back the veil; sirens luring the hapless sailor to a rocky end, or was it a genuine offer of polite discourse, the metaphorical olive branch?

Fascinating SIL - interesting read and well thought out.

I remember also the mcns had the song don't forget about me at the height of the fundraising and publicity.

It seems when they got made arguidos the song got forgot about -  I still think of Maddie when I hear it.


Corned beef potatoes and pepper hash is a fav of mine although there is 2 ways of doing it

It was very kind of you to mention Madeleine in the context of Simple Mind's beautiful tune and lyrics freely given for use in Madeleine's behalf:  promoting Madeleine using music and video certainly seems to have worked if your experience is anything to go by and still exists on the internet even all this time down the line.

The publicity then and later was in the hope that Madeleine would be found as a result.

The fundraising was to enable the continuing search for her.

19 MAY, 2007 MADELEINE MCCANN
in All News Share

The disappearance of four-year-old Madeleine McCann while holidaying in Algarve, Portugal has impacted millions of people throughout the continent.

Frankly it is impossible to imagine the extent of the pain and confusion that has descended on the little girl’s parents and her entire family as they wait hopefully on some positive news regarding both Madeleine’s wellbeing and whereabouts.

Our thoughts are with them entirely with every passing hour as the police search continues. Meanwhile it took no time at all for Simple Minds to agree for the usage of our track Don’t You Forget About Me as part of a video campaign to be shown throughout Europe detailing Madeleine’s circumstances and of course requesting information. We hope with the fullest of hearts that all efforts lead only to the safe return of Madeleine.

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

Disappointed. It's pretty well known - even by me and I know only 4 or 5 phrases.
I was lucky enough to have one excellent teacher in the comprehensive system. He taught us what he knew - which was a lot.

it cant be pretty well known as Ive never heard of it...it doesnt look to contain a verb and i dont recognise one genuine word....why would a proper noun be at the end of the phrase....looks like you've been caught out

Just for a little light amusement on your next coffee break, you might like to visit www.shininginluz.wordpress.com, for the Elvis take on cobblers.

There is a connection to the Madeleine McCann case, simply because nearly everything in Luz has a connection to MBM, but it is so obscure that I chose not to mention it.

But if you fancy some light froth on your next break pop in for Southern cobblers.

I got as far as Elvis dying in 1987 and didn’t bother with the rest.  I guess he must have faked his own death and gone to work in the chip shop after all, for the last 10 years of his life.
“we have carried out a very serious investigation and there is no indication whatsoever Madeleine McCann's parents are linked to her disappearance” - Hans Christian Wolters, German Prosecutor..

“Conspiracy theories exhibit a strong obsession with detail, often taking the form of highlighting a tiny piece of evidence and blowing it up out of all proportion, buttressing their claims with a display of pseudo-scholarship.  When they examine the real evidence, conspiracy theorists do not accept that minor inconsistencies come from mistakes in reporting.” Sir Richard J Evans, author and historian
