McCanns cause concern for the police

Post by Get'emGonçalo on 29.01.10 14:39

CHINESE lanterns set off on Wednesday evening in north west Sutherland in memory of missing Madeleine McCann, sparked an alert involving police and coastguards.

A woman reported seeing three bright orange lights in the sky at around 9pm in the Scourie area. She feared they were flares which had been set off by someone in distress.

Police called out the local coastguard unit who spotted more of the lights. But enquiries revealed they were Chinese lanterns set off to mark the 1000 days since the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. Lanterns have been released across the UK in support of Jerry and Kate McCann's search for their missing daughter.

But local police have now asked to be informed if anyone is still planning to release the lanterns in the Sutherland area.

excellent, I was worried we were going to run out of things to blame them for soon.

You have no need vaguely.
They rarely disappoint.

Too true - the potential problems with Chinese Lanterns has been well documented beforehand so there really is no excuse for their stupidy and sefishness. Then again, this has never bothered them before.

Hold on Autumn, you were criticising them the other day for not letting of lanterns for the Holocaust survivors and the children of Haiti.

Surely this was mere folly, what with you having serious health and safety concerns.

Vaguely, I have a confession to make - on New Year's Eve, a group of us released 5 Chinese Lanterns and, have to say, they were a beautiful sight. But to release 1000 of them and not think that they could cause a problem is hard to believe.
As for the cost, these lanterns dont come cheap and think that the money could have been better spent on something worthwhile - how about a one-way ticket to Praia Da Luz for Dodgy Dave Edgar, so that he can start searching for that lair that hes so keen on telling us about?

They are beautiful.

I have to say, you did strike me as someone who danced with the devil occasionally when it came to matters of lantern safety

I'm not certain, but I thought that the 1000 was a countrywide total. As opposed to all being let off in one place?

My question would be who lives in Sutherland who sent the lanterns on their way.

What was the significant of sending off from Sutherland anyway?

Why would you question that.... Are we outing well wishers now?

Good question, I was under the impression that the lanterns were being released from places of significance so where does Sutherland figure and who released them?

There must be people all over the country who get involved in missing children events like this.

Family, friends and supporters.

I guess if you you and the fellow dot connectors don't know who it is then it was probably a group of Madeleine supporters unconnected to the family.

Propably more accurate to refer to them as a group of Gerry and Kate supporters. How can the release of Chinese lanterns, ballons, doves, dancing elephants etc be considered in any way, supportive of Madeleine?

I have no Idea, but I suppose it can be linked to people showing they haven't given up on her.

Autumn even With all of the Efforts of the Foundation Most People aren't aware of the FIles, aren't aware of the Connections, etc. I wish You'd Pour more Efforts into Trying Convert Real McCann Supporters instead of Investigating them and Talking about Them. The best Thing for the FOundation would be if YOu convinced Some Unknowing Soul the Truth.

Iv been saying for months that it would be a wonderful idea to get a compilation of the main points of the Files out to the general public - I totally agree, that would be the best way forward thumbsup

I can't see it's possible to convert the real Mccann supporters as they seem blinkered. OK maybe a few may be persuaded by the reality of the files but as is clear on the forums, the majority just won't hear a word said against them for a reason which I can't fathom. Even if it was proven without a shadow of doubt in a court of law that they killed Maddie and disposed of her body, I think the supporters wouldn't believe it. The Mccanns are, to these supporters, like royalty, it is almost sacrilege to question them. How the Mccanns managed to brainwash in this way is interesting even though bizarre.

I think people are giving too much credit to the mccanns.

Those are probably a bunch of bored residents in the area with nothing to do after tea and decided to show up to watch a light-up event not unlike watching bon-fire!

People probably no longer give two monkeys about the mccanns' cause because 1) there had been plenty negative about them in the Press/media as well; and 2)how's a silly move like lanterns-letting going to find back Maddie, not forgetting the environmental hazard that could cause.

It's ridiculous to suggest people were there for Maddie or her parents. My guess is people probably went to pass time as well as to witness lanterns release which they'd never witnessed before - no more and no less!

I think the Public and the Public Support ones are mostly just Unawares. The Press Famously Flipp Flopped. They Don;t know What to Believe. Sending them vile EMails though and Accusing them of Being Pedophiles For Attending an Event Isn't the Way to go about winnign hearts and minds though.
