Philomena McCann: "..one greedy, unscrupulous character.."

Post by Get'emGonçalo on 27.11.10 19:03

Posted by AnnaEsse on her blog: http://frommybigdesk.blogspot.com/2010/11/philomena-mccann-one-greedy.html

"It needs only one greedy, unscrupulous character to come forward," said Philomena McCann.(Daily Mail 28/07/07)


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. Shocked

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.

She sent 'spam-like' emails asking for help and I replied. She was sooooo rude.

Hasn't got very good "people skills" has she. Glad my kids weren't in her class at school.

Perhaps her blood sugar levels were low & she only sounds and looks like a horrible cow but is on fact a wonderful warm human being? sarcastic
The old bag, you should have told her what we all thought of her "the shutters were jemmied or in her case jimmied open" bullsh*t lol4

And she is teacher of social studies! Blimey.
If she doesnt open her big mouth, no one will accuse her of being dumb.

BTW, have people heard the good news?

Isabel Duarte's been mccursed. She's lost the election for the Head of Lawyers Order.
What poetic justice! Her latest antics didnt win her votes that's for sure.

JM, my point was that Aunty Phil invited me to find Maddie in Glasgow rather than Portugal.

Aunty Phil has made a few foot in mouth slip-ups.

And, she thinks anyone giving info for the return of her niece greedy and unscrupulous!

She wasnt the person offering the reward! So she thinks her niece is not worth the return?
How can she quantify a statement like that, which is more important ? The money or her niece? Says it all really!

Beggars belief she is soooooo braindead.

She may have simply left of the "t"...(t)here. Seems to me she lacks in many areas not just people skills. No wonder the education system is panned.

Ah yes, of course. The only spelling mistake she makes and it's to do with the location - useful, that.

I received an email this morning from someone who wishes to remain anonymous but he has said I can post his email here - kiko and stella may be interested in this. The person said he would give me the address of the apartment if anyone can check on it.



Hi Jill,

You weren’t the only person to be taken in by Brian. At the bottom of the very 1st of his ‘dream’ drawings there is a word – VILAMURA!

Now I knew that this is not the way the Portuguese town is spelt, but it is EXACTLY the same spelling as the name of an apartment my ex used to stay in – and guess what – it is 10-15 yards further on from the Smith sighting!

This apartment was owned by an elderly English lady who seldom used it and as it lay unoccupied for long periods, she let my ex (who lives and works in P de Luz) use it for a while.

And this unused apartment had a freezer in the basement utility room!

So you can imagine my thoughts at that time!

My reason for being down there was that I worked month on/month off out of Vietnam and my ‘hobby’ was flying (particularly aerobatics). My friend has run the airstrip at Lagos (a few miles from Luz) for 25 years and if the weather was crap for flying up here in Bonnie Scotland during my leave, I would jump on a cheap Easyjet flight and go down to Lagos to fly. I often stayed in Luz, Lagos or Burgau. That is how I got to know my (then) girlfriend and how I know this apartment (Vilamura).

I saw that pic (the 1st one on Brian’s site re. Madeleine) within a few days of MM being reported missing.

My friend (at Lagos Aerodromo) and other pilots were, at their own expense, using Microlights (slow flying planes) to search for Madeleine (or her body ) all around the outskirts of that area of the Algarve, in case she had ‘woke and wandered’. They did this many times.

As he has lived there for about 25 years, and speaks fluent Portuguese, I immediately emailed him the link, and my thoughts and asked if he would speak to the PJ. He replied that he had done this.



I have always wondered if that info was ever looked at, as the PJ have been heavily criticized for their ineptitude during the initial stages of the case, but I soon found out that Brian was a fake, so never pushed this possibility.


I do still think, however, that it would be very useful to obtain a ‘property ownership record’ of Luz because - if the dogs are correct - she WAS in a freezer, SOMEWHERE!

PDL at that time of year has hundreds of empty apartments – it is a British/German timeshare resort.


Apologies for mailing this to you, but I did not want to post this on an OPEN thread!


Kind Regards,

XXXXXXX

Was Vilamura ever followed up? Sounds interesting

And Brians Predictions.....yet another physic/medium from the very early days, along with Amanda Hart/Diane Lazarus & gerry mccanns insistence to listen to them...and more recently SY telling us to take them seriously

I wonder if this is why, maybe, that in the distorted channel 4 documentary the Smith sighting was in a different street to where Smith says he was perhaps

This is VERY interesting from the PJ final report

http://www.mccannpjfiles.co.uk/PJ/PJ_Report_English_Translation.pdf

"The report on page 3998 and the inquirition on page 3459-a refers to two telephone communications that were received on the night of the facts by KATE HEALY, from a bar that is located in Vilamoura. It was possible to verify that it was a common friend/client between both."

"Ocean Club" seem to have apartments in Vilamoura, which I assume is the Ocean Club Mark Warner are involved with. Murat has family connections to the owners of Ocean Club

Sorry can't find another suitable Philomena McCann thread so thought I would start with this one.  I have just been looking at some videos and came across one titled Philomenas Freudian Slip.  I have listened to it over and over and I cannot make sense of part of it.
I understand the Freudian slip regarding 'they have not told the twins where MBM is' but can anyone tell me when this recording was made - she does reference the twins as being 2.
She goes on to say this regarding the twins 'We have a large family who appear regularly out in Portugal and when they were down in Leicester so they have got kinda use to kids being taken away for a day and that.. and you know kids at 2 don't realise how long a period of time is.....'

If this was recorded soon after MBM disappeared why would she say

when they were down in Leicester (past tense as though she was aware they were not going back)
'use to kids being taken away for a day or two'??  kids indicates more than 1 so you would think it would mean  both of them but therefore neither one of them would notice a kid being taken away??
Did any of the family that came to stay take the twins anywhere for a day trip or over night somewhere at the beginning?  I am sure they were used to their parents not being there, as they were off travelling the world, but I don't remember the twins going on trips without the McCanns in tow??

There was a discussion quite some time ago about a holiday in Turkey which Philimena either arranged or/and took part in.
This holiday as in June  2007 and apparently Philomena went with friends and family. 

Well, they could always keep a look out for creepy men.winkwink

I think here she is saying that many of the family go out to Portugal and take care of the twins as happened in the UK. I think they are parents who always needed a lot of help with the children.

The greedy etc. remark reveals a certain pique imo as all that lovely money could not be touched by TM.

You bet tigger. Who funded all these family trips, themselves? Once saw a video with a quick shot of this sister sat outside a bar laughing and joking. Have not got a clue which video it was but there she sat in all her glory as though she was on her annual hols.

According to Kate's book they had a couple of apartments at the holiday complex, presumably Warners laid them on for nothing as Gerry in his blogs said the Fund wasn't used for accommodation.  I actually find it really bizarre that all their extended family and friends were flying out there, never heard anything like it in my life.

And they didn't even get off their asses to look for Madeleine. They spent their time lolling around the pool on the sunbeds.

I suppose there has never been a precedence set so whatever the family and friends did is a first. Sorry to say though I wonder how many supporters they would have had had it been something that happened in Rothley in November, would they have all turned up and stayed at the nearest Premier Inn at their own expense. Sorry if I have said anything out of place.

Referring to the 2nd post on page two of this thread - was a 'property ownership register' ever found by anyone for Luz in 2007?

There was literally nothing for the majority of them to do.  Many arrived too late for the on ground searches, and had no local knowledge in any case and their poolside lounging and large get togethers raised not a few eyebrows among locals who questioned the appropriateness. 

The whole point and purpose of getting as many of their acquaintance over to PDL pdq was, IMO, merely as a show of solidarity.  To demonstrate to the assembled press what a popular couple this must be, who could engender such devotion that all manner of tenous acquaintances were prepared to interrupt lives, and leave children, jobs, responsibilities behind to go and "assist" at the drop of a hat.  The sheer variety of the people who went to PDL that summer astounds, people who had long been out of touch to all practical intents. At the time I wondered whether I would consider dashing off to the aid of even very close friends abroad in such circumstances.  Most people would doubtless have felt in the way, as if their presence were an intrusion and an added responsibility for the grieving couple who surely had more than enough to contend with.  Makes one wonder who persuaded them all it was appropriate to go over, and who took the time to arrange remibursement of travel and expenses. That would have given someone quite a lot to do - perhaps that was indeed an end in itself.
