Not the day Madeleine went missing then?
Mrs McCann says in her forthcoming book, serialised in The Sun, that even her normally-solid husband was distraught.
She said: ‘He was on his knees, sobbing, his head hung low. “We’re finished. Our life is over”, he kept saying.’
She says her ‘ferocious maternal instinct’ to protect her child was more powerful than her own fear.
‘I felt strangely invincible,’ she says. ‘The PJ [Policia Judiciaria] can beat me up and throw me in a prison cell, but I will not lie ... I will do everything I can to help Madeleine.’
Maternal instinct had a few days off then while the kids were left nights on a row to go wining and dining?
Mr McCann had pleaded with officers: ‘Do you have any evidence that Madeleine is dead? We’re her parents. You have to tell us.’
Whats with the constant word evidence ?
The police theory was that she had died in an accident, and the McCanns had hidden her body and later buried it elsewhere. One of their pieces of ‘evidence’ was that devout Roman Catholic Mrs McCann had asked to see a priest on the night Madeleine vanished.
Apparently people in Portugal ‘only called for a priest when they wanted their sins to be forgiven’, she says.
being a devout Catholic you should know
The police also had a witness who claimed to have seen Mr and Mrs McCann carrying a big black bag and acting suspiciously.
Mrs McCann says their lawyer warned them: ‘If you were Portuguese, this would be enough to put you in prison.’
The McCanns said they were treated appallingly even before they were made ‘arguidos’ – suspects – in September 2007.
In light that they did not get charged for neglect they got off lightly
Mrs McCann says: ‘I felt as if I didn’t exist.’ It seemed to her that no one was bothering to look for her ‘baby’.
Well more looking than you did in the first 48 hours
Twenty-four hours after their daughter went missing, Mrs McCann says, her frustration and anger were reaching boiling point. ‘I felt like a caged, demented animal,’ she says.
‘This was torture of the cruellest kind. Finally, I erupted. I began to scream, swear and lash out.
‘I kicked an extra bed that had been brought into the apartment and smashed the end right off it. Prostrate on the floor
Boiling with rage as a policeman accused her of killing her daughter, Kate McCann kept control of her temper by whispering ‘****ing to**er’ at him.
Mrs McCann said detective Ricardo Paiva was interrogating her in the Portimao police station on Friday, September 7 – having previously been the McCanns’ police liaison officer.
‘This was the man who invited us to his home for dinner,’ she says. ‘Our children played with his son.’
Now he was suggesting that she had ‘sedated’ the twins and was unable to cope with three children.
‘I knew exactly where this line of questioning was going and I refused to give in to it,’ she says. ‘I remember feeling disdain for Ricardo. What was he doing? Just following orders?
‘Under my breath I found myself whispering, “****ing to**er, ****ing to**er”. This quiet chant somehow kept me strong, kept me in control.’

Yet more lies!
In the video she says how they have such a good relationship with the police, but in the book they were 'treated appallingly'!
I'm beginning to wonder if the media, by their hanging on to her every word and not questioning these blatant discrepancies, are hanging her out to dry and allowing her to dig an ever deepening hole!

And yes, I’ve been angry with Him. I’ve shouted out loud and on occasion I’ve hit things. (I’m afraid even the church pews have had the odd thumping!).’ She says she finds comfort in the thought that wherever Madeleine is, God is with her.
They called in social services themselves to ‘pre-empt’ any interest, and were ‘resigned’ to being interviewed at their home by social workers about their parenting skills.
