howdy I stand corrected!
@ Verdi    I am sorry.

My earlier post was uploaded in error whilst I was trying to amend it.

Please look at my second post just now @ 11.18pm - in which I trust we may find a fair measure of agreement.

If we can work out what Blacksmith is actually saying, that is.

But look at Blacksmith's actual words:

"I believe in the possibility of abduction" (Cracked Mirror) and

"An accident involving the child and a lucky disposal of her remains by persons unknown, but drawn from the pool of people close to her that night is consistent with all the known facts..." (Blacksmith this month) and

"In conclusion...it is not possible to obtain a solid and objective conclusion about what really happened that night, nor about the present location of the missing child..." (Cracked Mirror)



So I think your formula should be slightly altered to:

Neglect = abduction by an unknown person OR an accident and a 'lucky' disposal of her remains by unknown persons = panic = fake abduction = reputation management = why was Dr Amaral so inept as not to see the obvious.

Given Blacksmith's insistence that we over here spend far too much time speculating without evidence, I would love to see Blacksmith's evidential basis for asserting that there might have been::

1. An accident, followed by

2. Disposal of her remains, which was

3. Lucky, and which was by

4. Persons unknown, but

5. Drawn from a 'pool of people', who were

6. 'Close to her'.


This is classic Blacksmith. It is basically nonsense. He is saying that it's consistent with the evidence to suggest that Madeleine's body was disposed of, luckily, by an unknown person who was 'close to her'.

But also that he believes in the possibility of abduction.   
AMEN !!!

ETA:  An example recently posted-up by the same culprit on a certain blogspot ..

The nannies were not "sent to work in Greece". That was a Mail invention. But don't let me spoil the fun. Hint: try checking when their MW contracts were due to end.

Wrong again!

An analysis of Blacksmith’s article: ‘The Cracked Mirror’ - with 18 Quotes from his article

Post by Tony Bennett on 22.12.15 9:22

An analysis of Blacksmith’s article: ‘The Cracked Mirror’ - with 18 Quotes from his article


‘The Cracked Mirror’, says Blacksmith, is his defining, definite analysis of what really happened to Madeleine. I am probably one of few people who has read the whole 35-page article all the way through. If anyone stil thinks that Blacksmith is ‘on the same page’ as most people on CMOMM, then please wade through his meandering article and see for yourselves. Meanwhile, here is a brief analysis, using actual quotes from the article. 

About 80% of the article is a speculative analysis of why each member of the Tapas 7 decided to lie about their child care arrangements that week in response to what he calls, mysteriously, Madeleine’s ‘disappearance’. He makes a series of excuses for them all.

He asserts that Madeleine suddenly ‘disappeared’ on the night of Thursday 3 May, was more-than-likely abducted - though he says he doesn’t know how she disappeared - and then the Tapas 7 made up a mystery abductor, ‘Tannerman’, and proceeded to lie about their child care arrangements.

Ever since the ‘Cracked Mirror’ article, he has insisted that all the research and analysis on forums like CMOMM, e.g. by PeterMac, Lizzy HideHo and others, is a complete waste of time.

Here, with a few comments, are some excerpts from Blacksmith’s ‘Cracked Mirror’ article:    

 

1. Blacksmith asserts that the only evidence of the abduction comes from the Tpaas 7, who have told lies about what really happened. He says in the passage below that no definite evidence of an abduction has yet emerged. Yet later on, contrary to that assertion, he says that he does believe in the possibility of abduction:        

QUOTE Blacksmith: “There have been claims that the focus on the parents and their friends led to the neglect of other lines of inquiry and the PJ itself has been willing to accept such a possibility. Is there any evidence demonstrating the reality of such a supposition? In other words has evidence emerged to show that the group were the victims of misunderstanding and that their veracity has now been demonstrated? And has the passage of years turned up evidence showing that an abduction probably occurred? The answer is ‘No’.”

2. He asserts that the Tapas 9 lies about their child care arrangements:

QUOTE Blacksmith: “The record since the investigation was shelved shows conclusive evidence of deception and untruth”.

3. He says that if you leave children alone while you go out wining and dining there is a very low probability that your children will be abducted. But then he introduce the idea that an abduction really did happen, and that if it did, ‘innocent’ people (by which he mans the Tapas 9) can easily fall under suspicion:

QUOTE Blacksmith:  “When something with a very low probability does occur then suspicion can easily attach itself to innocent people…”

4. Blacksmith’s grand declaration. His so-called ‘findings’ turn out to be 20 rambling pages excusing the Tapas 9 for lying about Madeleine’s ‘disappearance’:

QUOTE Blacksmith: “I submit our findings for your consideration, for you to determine and decide accordingly.

5. Blacksmith says the Tapas 9 were just ‘in the wrong place at the wrong time’:

QUOTE Blacksmith: “The inability to make sense of what has happened, and the resentment at the fate that has befallen them for simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time…” 

6. Blacksmith says the Tapas 9 were taken aback by what happened:

QUOTE Blacksmith: “Their feelings are reflected to a greater or lesser extent by the entire group: how, they ask, could ‘anyone in a million years’ – a frequent phrase - have predicted what would happen on May 3?”

7. For the second time, Blacksmith refers to the Tapas 9 as ‘innocent’:

QUOTE Blacksmith: “They are, genuinely, innocents abroad”.

8. Blacksmith makes more excuses for the Tapas 9; they ‘weren’t thinking clearly’ about their child care arrangements: 

QUOTE Blacksmith: It should be clear by now that none of the group, save possibly Kate McCann with her premonitory worries, were thinking clearly about the holiday…” 

9. More of the same, referring to the decision not to hire a baby-sitter:

QUOTE Blacksmith: “There is no evidence of any hidden motives: it was just a lousy, lousy, decision, of the sort that we can all make at different times…” 

10. It was mainly Dr David Payne’s fault:

QUOTE Blacksmith: “The Paynes took a highly effective baby-monitor along, neglecting, perhaps, to suggest that the others do the same”.

11. More of the same:

QUOTE Blacksmith: “Still, there is no escape from it: Dr Payne had comprehensively dropped them all in the shit”.

12. Still more of the same: 

QUOTE Blacksmith: “…because of Payne’s prior formal acceptance of the facilities, including the non-existence of baby listening and the lack of MW security overview of the apartments – ”

13. Blacksmith suggested that the group wasn’t prepared to spend money on a ‘patrolling baby-sitter…’ 

QUOTE Blacksmith: “The choices, after all, were simple enough: with the daytime activities sorted out on the Sunday the sole question was what to do about the evening meals. Given that none of them, understandably, fancied the idea of carting the children to an evening crèche some distance away, the obvious solution was to find someone, either a local person, or one of the off-duty English staff, to act as a patrolling baby sitter with access to their apartments. At between ten and fifteen euros an hour, say, three hours a night would cost the three couples – one does not get the impression that the Paynes were going to hurl money into the kitty – around eighty euros each to cover the remainder of the holiday”.

14. Blacksmith’s convoluted attempt to explain why the Tapas 7 may have lied about the child care arrangements: 

QUOTE Blacksmith:  “But the whole question of supervision and “checking” has become so loaded since May 3 that most of the statements made about it by all those involved, not just Dianne Webster, are of debatable value, not because the 7 (I exclude the McCanns) were liars but because the issue was tied up, in both their statements and their own minds, with problems of guilt, shame, self-preservation, loyalty to the unfortunate McCanns and bewilderment”. 

15. Blacksmith dwells again on what he says was the Tapas 7’s reluctance to admit responsibility for their ‘bad’ child care decisions:

QUOTE Blacksmith: “Just how much the subject, and its implications, were actually discussed is smothered under a certain amount of flannel. It is quite clear that none of the 7 were willing to admit that any one person suggested the idea, or that is was a consciously agreed decision in the knowledge that there were risks. ‘In relation to the child care issues it was a collective decision made as a group,’ said Russell O’Brien to the UK police, ‘There’s obviously this image,’ concluded Jane Tanner, ‘that we were like ah, fuck the kids, we’ll go off to the Tapas bar they’ll be fine, and it wasn’t like that at all.’ And she was telling the truth: it wasn’t. But using, significantly, a Kate McCann phrase, she added, ‘We just thought...you don’t imagine in a million years.’ Imagine what? Fire? Bizarre and unlikely accident? An intruder? Is it really that inconceivable?

16. Blacksmith, who admits to having contacts with the security services, ridicules any idea of a government cover-up:


QUOTE Blacksmith: “To many, of course, such self-confidence was a sure sign that they were all under protection of some kind, perhaps because this little group of provincial nonentities had powerful connections, or maybe because they were uncomfortably close to organised VIP paedophile rings whose exposure would bring the government, or the monarchy, crashing down. After all, hadn’t the "UK Secret Services," whoever they might be, arrived within forty-eight hours of Madeleine McCann vanishing from her bed? However possible or impossible such theories may be, one can only say that they are not obviously derived from the available evidence, although that evidence can, naturally, be used to support them.

17. Blacksmith opines that Jane Tanner is ‘sincere’ and that the Tapas 7’s belief in their own ‘innocence’ is justified:   


QUOTE Blacksmith: Jane Tanner’s outburst sounds sincere and conforms to the author’s personal view that the group's manifest belief in its own innocence is justified as far as the actual disappearance is concerned”. 

18. Blacksmith rounds up with a reference to the Tapas 7 being ‘justifiably and unshakably convinced of their innocence:

QUOTE Blacksmith: “The problem here, the one that lies right at the heart of the police enquiry, was that while the seven had an unshakable conviction of both their own and the McCanns’ innocence regarding the actual disappearance, perfectly justifiable, it seems, their attitude and behaviour as far as the rest of their holiday is concerned is a quite different matter…a witch’s brew of guilt, shame, inability to confront their own actions and - with the growing realisation of how their behaviour was being seen by outsiders - barely controlled fear of legal action, made their responses to the Portuguese police very far from frank and open”.

The most telling document!

Post by willowthewisp on 22.12.15 12:42

Perhaps "Blacksmith" has close associations of people from a very secret place,but what cannot be excluded from his analysis as Tony Bennett has pointed out is the"Abduction" Operation Grange remit is,Abduction, as it was written up by the most Two prolific detectives,SIO Hamish Campbell and DCI Andy Redwood,who worked on the unsolved Murder's of Jill Dando,Daniel Morgan and close connections to certain News Papers Proprietor, which shines every day?
After reading some of Mr. Bennett's quotes from Blacksmiths cracked mirror post that,Blacksmiths agenda is to treat the main protagonist's with kid gloves, as there is no evidence that any of them have committed a crime,yet a child of nearly Four years of age has disappeared from a supposed place of safety, in an unlocked apartment,giving an opportunist person a short period of time to abscond with Kate and Gerry McCann's daughter Madeleine,Abduction?

Blacksmith's article 'Hatred Becomes Them' can still be found on the wayback machine:



The Blacksmith Bureau


Wednesday, 22 October 2014
Hatred Becomes Them




There is one constant at the heart of the McCann affair: the pathological hate-filled personalities of Kate and Gerry McCann. Since May 3 2007 the hate has flowed outwards from the pair like the Ebola virus – almost literally so, as in the case of the spittle-flecked rage of Gerry McCann on the steps of the Lisbon court. It swells and sprays the pus of hatred on everybody within range.
It has been there in all its violence since the beginning: the very first cries from the supposedly stricken couple were not of grief, nor of appeals for help to the heavens or to fellow human beings, but of extreme violence and hatred. The woman hater smashing her arms into the hotel walls bellowing “we let her down!” – self-hatred? – the man lying on his back in paroxysms of foaming rage at his imaginary “paedophile bastards”. Hate is what they do. Hate is what they are. Hate is what they have brought us.
The First Enemies
Within hours their spleen was turned onto the police who’d come to their aid – “Tweedledum and Tweedledee” as the female hater contemptuously calls them to this day. With each phone call the targeting and abuse increased, all in full knowledge that their relatives were feeding this stuff directly to the media.
The media alerts provided by the family and their friends led to a wave, a tsunami, of goodwill and sympathy for them in the hours and days following the disappearance – justified or otherwise. That this response, like so many media-amplified public responses, had a disturbing, mass-hysterical edge to it, makes no difference – the wave was an uplifting one, of support, solidarity and a desire to help. If ever human goodness and human goodwill could support apparent victims of a tragedy it was now.
And what did the  couple do with this freely offered support and sympathy? At once they perverted it and soiled it, just as they had soiled the Portuguese attempts to help them and their daughter: they took the gift and instead of accepting it with grace and humility they spat on the offering hand by  using it for their own purposes, as has been so often described by Woolfall and the couple themselves.  And part of that ruthless use of public goodwill was the invention of the “McCann Critics”, who didn’t exist and whom they have since used as a screen, a target and a cover.
The First Trolls
McCann Critics” were invented by the McCann family at lunchtime on May 4 before a word of criticism had been offered. Yet that lunchtime Michael Wright was making his extraordinary statement to the London Evening Standard that "There has been some negative spin put on this, with people criticising them for leaving the kids and going on the tear.”
Wright added, “But it's nonsense, they were close by and were eating within sight of where the children were and checking on them. Other members of the group were checking on her as well. No one was rip-roaring drunk.”
With this one act the McCann family further sullied the gift they had been offered by introducing the whole realm of criticism and disagreement about their conduct. If you consult McCann Files, the accepted authority on early media reporting of the case, you will see that there is not a single report of “criticism” of the McCanns before  the Wright cutting itself. None of us know the motives behind this calculated action. In this, as in so many other aspects of the McCann affair, had the family kept their silence then the course of events could have been very different, for Wright’s intervention guaranteed  that media and readers would want to follow up his apparent revelations. They wouldn’t have been human if they hadn’t asked themselves what’s all this about? It’s all there, isn’t it? People criticising them; the question of drink; leaving the kids; checking; close by. All coming not from critics but from Gerry McCann. It was as if they wanted the enemies and brought them into life.
Without Hate They Are Nothing
Nothing has changed since May 3/4: the McCanns have gone on inventing enemies ever since and in doing so have guaranteed reactions in return. “Tweedledum and Tweedledee…annoying Mrs Fenn…the “dirty” Portimao police headquarters with its uncaring officers, the “f****** tossers” who dared to question them, poor Amaral himself, a policeman turned by McCann hate-magic into a persecutor who deserves to suffer… the UK journalists who must “pay” for their “wicked” 2007 reporting with their jobs in future, the entire Portuguese police force who were “mocked” by their own prosecutors and who deserved to be sued for wrongful arrest…the list of enemies grows greater with every year.
Because the pair thrive on enmity, they are in thrall to it. Watch their dozens, hundreds, of interviews and public appearances and look into their eyes: hers are now dead, like those of a flabby cod on a marble slab; his flicker like those of a stressed and watchful lizard; both are straight out of a horror film. Only one thing ever brings their eyes to a semblance of life as the rest of us know it – hatred. Gerry McCann sits at Leveson like a rusty  robot  until he is allowed to turn to the subject of revenge – then his eyes glow bright, full and animated, his whole body livens up as he makes his calls for condign punishment of the journalists who dared to accuse him until Leveson himself has to check him like some elderly male nurse, muttering soothingly that unfortunately English law doesn’t permit the punishments that this vengeance-filled hater wants imposed.
Everyone who has read Madeleine knows that the narrative only comes to life when the writer hates. Her supposed memories of her daughter are uneasy, perfunctory, trotted out via images, all as moving as a shopping list. Her expressions of feeling for the rest of the group – when they can be recognized at all amid the floodlit glare of her own feelings for herself – utterly fail to convince. Her thousands upon thousands of words describing her “work” for missing children are a painful drone worthy of a local councillor describing the latest plumbing installations. But whenever someone she can full-bloodedly hate enters the narrative then she is totally convincing and the prose takes flight, as in her description of the planning of the ambush on Amaral when it drips with excitement. Hate liberates her writing: it’s like a pack of dogs being unleashed.
So it is in her public appearances – watch the dead-fish eyes start to sparkle when she stands in front of the assembled media in Portugal and, once again, gives vent to the vile, unquenchable hatred she feels for Goncalo Amaral. Hatred is this supposedly Catholic couple’s fuel, the thing that, above all else, keeps them going.
Nobody Matters…
Both of them talk glibly of the “responsibility” that others – everybody in the world within their reach – have to exercise when daring to discuss them in case they or other members of their clan are “hurt”. Other people, it now seems, can die as part of the effort to prevent them being “hurt”. Not once have they ever addressed their own responsibility. Those with the public eye upon them, those whom the media have made rich and powerful, whether premier league footballers, BBC deejays or politicians are expected to moderate their behaviour, not wield their potential power - footballers and deejays by not exploiting every fifteen year old who might gratify them sexually, politicians by not using the amplifier of media fame to arouse hatred or fear.
Have you ever heard the couple make an appeal for moderation? Ask people not to demonize their “enemies”? Get rags like the Mirror to soften its war on the Portuguese? No, instead they spread and encourage the hate virus in their demented followers. To this day these supposed victims organize Facebook sites with a clear agenda of hatred and retaliation, brief journalists against their latest enemies, pay lawyers to ambush them and use their repulsive “spokesman” to plant stories and call, loudly, for those who don’t like them to be “held to account”.
But Us
They remind us daily that there is “no evidence that Madeleine has come to harm”. Well good for her but others have, haven’t they? Amaral and Brenda Leyland: one ruined, one dead. Compared with those two victims of their pathological hatred the McCanns are doing pretty well, aren’t they?
So far.

If that be the case, I strongly suggest he stops writing about the case - not productive to churn out ream upon ream of contradictory nonsensical verbiage.  Put up or shut up that's what I say.

Hi Verdi,Mr Blacksmith seems to be on an hokey cokey in,out dance at the moment, perhaps he is testing the water temperature of the readers of CMMOM in anticipation of the Operation Grange scenario,"Creche Dad found and the clothes his daughter was wearing as well" according to Crime Watch October 2013,by DCI Andy Redwood?
I have to say though in all honesty with regard to his 22 Dec 2015 post,when he speaks of at least two people who have followed the case with intense honesty,Mr Goncalo Amaral and Mrs Brenda Leyland(RIP) free from the tormenting Martin **nt, who was quickly sent on an assignment to Africa so as to avoid "Proper Journalists" reporting on the Dossier handed to Sir Bernard Hogan Howe by the McCann family as he stated,that it spoke of the integrity of honest people.

I have no idea why anyone would wish to latch onto some random comment Blacksmith has said in the hope it's genuine and to disregard the rest of the BS.

It's the BS 'bureau'. Even a broken clock is correct twice each day.

The Bullshit Bureau is nonsense. Nothing more and nothing less. It exists to damn Tony Bennett and CMoMM and slips comfortably between the sheets of deranged blogs and bloggers to perpetuate more nonsense.

Madeleine who?

Think PeterMac.

Then think Lizzy HideHo.

And then think 'Blacksmith'.

Can anyone who is a member of CMOMM, or who is a guest and reads here, think of even ONE valuable insight on the Madeleine McCann case that Blacksmith has ever given us?

@TonyBennett

Somewhere along the line you said you think you are one of the few people who have waded through the 30+ pages of the Cracked Mirror.  Well, if only I had your forbearance I might have gone beyond the first paragraph of the introduction.  I quote..

The Cracked Mirror  was written in 2009. It is not a blog but a study and perhaps deserved a different website – but Blogger was free and available so here it appeared.  It has never been amended since publication and since the Blogger format  is unfriendly to narrative structure – the beginning being found at the end and vice versa – readers may have had difficulty in  finding their bearings. There appears to be a continuing demand for the work so the running order has now been been corrected and the narrative can be read as the author intended.

What the bleeping heck is that supposed to mean.  Is it a thinly veiled way of saying I've amended the original publication because I was wrong - I've changed my mind so have re-written the entire article?  Or is it simply because the blogger format is unfriendly to narrative structure !?!?!?

I no speaka the lingo.

Somewhere along the line you said you think you are one of the few people who have waded through the 30+ pages of the Cracked Mirror. I quote Blacksmith...

[SNIPPED] "...since the Blogger format  is unfriendly to narrative structure – the beginning being found at the end and vice versa –"

What the bleeping heck is that supposed to mean?.  Is it a thinly veiled way of saying I've amended the original publication because I was wrong - I've changed my mind so have re-written the entire article?  Or is it simply because the blogger format is unfriendly to narrative structure !?!?!?
This could be one of those famous sayings upon which opinion will be forever divided.

Who can have forgotten those eternal words of Manchester United football star, Eric Cantona:

"When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think that sardines will be thrown into the water". Here he is uttering those memorable words:

Now, some thought that this was profound, while others simply thought it was a blindingly bland statement of the patently obvious.

I think the choice with the above words of Blacksmith's is a little different.

Either it is one of those pearls of wisdom that defines a generation - a seminal statement that will lead to a sea change in how internet users perceive the art of blogging for, say, the next 50 to 100 years...

....while. on the other hand, it could be...

...like much of Blacksmiths' work...

...pretentious garbage

Sorry but you're all on Santa's naughty list now!

Blacksmith's highlighting of the fact that the fairytale written on Maddies colouring book
ends at 9.30pm and restarts at 10.00pm with the discovery that Maddie is missing.....
is pure genius.

It highlights exactly that this was a plan, written on a book that would no longer be required by it's owner.

Where are all the relevant details in between 9.30pm until zero hour 10.00pm ?
JT walking back to the restaurant past the apartment, R O'B also walking by to his apartment and then again back to the restaurant, as well as MO also walking past the apartment back to the restaurant ( shutters open ? Curtains flying ? )

There is absolutely NO detail there apart from the bare bones of a plan necessary to narate a story.

The fairytale.... first Maddie is witnessed alive and well, JT sees a man carrying a child KM discovers Maddie missing!!

Excuse me?

We needed Mr Blacksmith to tell us that the Activity Sticker book timelines were fabrications?

Well, it must be true, then...we learn something new every day
