Curtain Up!









                                                                                                                          By the great Saul Bass
This act takes place over about eight weeks with rapid scene changes between London, Lisbon, Faro and some of the less salubrious parts of Leicestershire. About the latter, the words of F. Scott Fitzgerald in Tender is the Night – his novel about a self-obsessed raving lunatic who somehow managed to conceal the symptoms of her insanity from the wider world – are appropriate: “…a place where very few things begin but many things end.”

OVER eight weeks?

Should that be interpreted as WITHIN eight weeks?

And if not, then: WHEN? Past, present or future?

Is JB having one of his fits over a bowl of tealeaves again? Surely not?

Must be talking about past 8 weeks culminating to this week's event ...with outcome yet to unfold......but won't be... to Mrs liking....
The damages trial will probably announce its final verdict about February, so I feel that he is talking about the coming 8 weeks.

No one told me that. The lawyers summing up is on Wednesday so, allowing time for the judge to consider her verdict and the slowness of the Portuguese judicial system, it seems Feb would be about the time the verdict will be announced.

So it's only your opinion that it will be about February then.

JB's blog is always open to interpretation somewhat - I'm not 100% convinced he himself is specific in his own mind, when he writes them.

The damages trial and criminal investigations(s) are of course two seperate entities.  However, I've always believed SY/PJ are using the trial as a timeline guide for their own investigative progression. For what specific reasons, I can only speculate.

Woodforthetrees @10.32 am

Without this payout of approx £1m, they will have (IMO) zero left in the 'fighting fund' pot, therefore won't be able to silence as many people going forward. Put this together with SY etc now clearly indicating that poor Maddie is no longer alive, this will then put an end to any future donations to the fraudulent 'search fund'.

We'll be able to see how much is left in the pot in the new year when the Fund's accounts are published.  I believe they still have financial backers whose donations won't necessarily go into the Fund.

How is the McCann's search for their daughter progressing, anyone know?

Given that the most recent search involved digging holes in the ground over in PDL, I'm going to say - badly.

They are still going through the Voter's List and the Land Registry, trying to track down the owner and occupier of the address
1, Hellish Lair,
Lawless Hinterland,
Praia da Luz,
24986 - Algarve


You remember, the one Dave Edgar gave them.
Another couple of years should do it.

That's true Ladyinred....unless certain court case/compo payments have been conveniently left out of the funds books (such as the reward money etc).

I believe (and maybe wrong) that the libel payout would go directly to Kate, Gerry and the kids as compensation, not the fund to find their 'missing' daughter.

New one today. Sensible one on duty again

Post by PeterMac on 08.12.14 15:10

Not pulling any punches
So that corrupt and criminal rag, the Mirror, has had the names of the eleven for weeks but has only released details of those who fit into their dodgy agenda, keeping the other ones to themselves.

He's talking about the events unfolding over the coming weeks, both here and in Porrtugal and making reference to Kate being mad as a hatter - which he has always maintained.
I don't disagree with him there. It has always been my opinion that Kate is not the weak one, but the very strong willed and seriously disturbed one, at the center of all this.

Appendage to the SHOCK blog. Explains the 8 week thing.

But -

Oh dear, we’d better add this. We don’t have inside information on any of the eleven suspects/witnesses or the future course of the investigation. Official or semi-official sources state that the questioning of the only known suspects will begin in Portugal this week; so will the libel trial; the inquest into Brenda Leyland will resume on December 18; and the libel trial should finish sometime in February. Eight weeks (around second week of February) is our rough estimate for the completion of the events which make up this act.

Thats a bit harsh Aquila, I've been reading we would hear the verdict around February time.

As Blacksmith starts the article with "CURTAIN UP" I think he is saying that the 'act' starts now and lasts 8 weeks, ending in Leicestershire. In my opinion.

That's how I took it, IMO SY will swoop once they've lost the case against Snr.Amaral.

I did find BS's final line in the 'Curtain Up' alarmingly prophetic......"a place where very few things begin but many things end"
Many people here share the same concern.

'snipped'

"The pitiful testimonies of the McCann witnesses in Lisbon were no accident. They resulted from a determined attempt by the McCann team to avoid presenting any real evidence in support of the “impact” claim because there wasn’t any; instead they hoped to rely on unfounded assertion by their inexpert witnesses to cover the gap, just as their claims of damage to their mental and physical health were unsupported by a single health professional, only inexpert friends and a “trauma counsellor”.

It’s what they do. It never changes. That’s why we expect them to lose their malevolent and mendacious libel claim."

And, with THAT, i concur!

Nothing new from Blacksmith. The same thoughts were on this forum at the time from a whole host of decent people or should I say the the 'cesspit' as Blacksmith likes to call this forum.
