Philomena McCann: "..one greedy, unscrupulous character.."
Sat Nov 27, 2010 7:03 pm by Get 'em Gonçalo
Posted by AnnaEsse on her blog: http://frommybigdesk.blogspot.com/2010/11/philomena-mccann-one-greedy.html
The above was in relation to the reward on offer at the time: £3.2 million, according to the 28th July 2007 article featured in the Daily Mail. After more than three years, I am still utterly gobsmacked by Phil McCann's choice of words to describe someone who might come forward to help find her niece.
'Greedy': did she think this was someone who had already received payment of some kind? Greedy for more? Someone who is greedy is a person who takes more than their fair share. So, she thought that someone who could help find Madeleine would be getting more than they deserved? So, what would such a person deserve?
'Unscrupulous': having no scruples, ethics or principles. What? This makes even less sense than 'greedy'. For someone to have no scruples, ethics or principles in claiming a reward for helping to find a missing child, they would, by definition, be behaving in an underhand and devious manner. Towards whom and about what? Towards the McCanns, who only wanted to find their daughter? Wouldn't the parents of a missing child be delighted for the information, wherever it came from if they could get their daughter back unharmed? And 'one greedy, unscrupulous character'. Does that mean that Auntie Phil thought there was more than one person who could possibly have come forward? Someone who would unscrupulously grass up the abductor? Wouldn't any close relative of a missing child be eternally grateful to such a person? But, no, Phil McCann would view that person as being a 'greedy, unscrupulous character.'
To be continued!
AnnaEsse's post has interested me because I remember emailing Phenomenal McScam in June 2007 with some information I found on Brian's Dreams blog (in the days when I believed anything) and she told me I was nasty and should go back to my coven.
She then emailed me again and copied the email to Stu 'hope you are well' Prior.
I found it odd that she put in her email "If you or even he is so convinced by his 'dream predictions' then go and find her here" - she was emailing me from Glasgow.
