30. When they heard about the dogs’ findings, the McCanns reacted strangely, claiming that…
· The ‘smell of death’ may have been found on Kate’s clothes because she was said to have been close to six corpses in her last two weeks at work, on the pink soft toy ‘Cuddle Cat’ because she ‘sometimes took Cuddle Cat to work’, or that the ‘smell of death’ could have come from rotting meat that Gerry McCann was taking to the local rubbish dump from time to time
Has any of these ?statements been followed up?
Don't they have refuse collection in portugal?

The story of the cadaver odour came via the McCanns of course through their unofficial press agents - the family - probably Philomena who also duly reported the broken shutters and so on.
The McCanns already had these tactics in place on the night of the 3rd, when family was told of the incompetence of the PJ, the shutters and so on.
A common device in politics to enable the people in question to answer questions without the risk of being held to account for false reporting.

Does make you wonder whether the journalists have him on tape saying some of the more contentious of his (not publicly attributable) statements.
Kate McCann "I know that what happened is not due to the fact of us leaving the children asleep. I know it happened under other circumstances"

The most poignant being :
When 'Keela' was nine months old she was tasked to search an open fishing boat, contaminated by rotting fish flesh and BLOOD.
A missing person was believed to have killed on the boat.
The dog located and alerted to a blood sample that was so small that when LOW
COPY analysed was reported as being PRIMATE and an uncompleted sample.
There are only two scenarios to suit this find. The blood was either human or a gorilla went out in a boat fishing ! !
So, the dog can smell through rotten meat!
I hope they get whats coming to them
put in the search box the following co-ordinates (copy and paste)
That gives you the tapas bar.
Immediately south of that is a parking area with four green bins.
If you then mouse around the area you will see green and yellow bins in almost every car parking area.
That is how it works in the south of Europe

Tigger, it is from Michael Wright's (Kate's cousin's husband) statement:
"There are various rubbish recycling/dump areas and we used these:
- two trash bins at the villa, one at the main entrance and the other at the top of the hill;
- one area on the cemetery road;
- one area above the Mark Warner complex, and
- one area between the villa and the church.
The visiting gardener always generated garden rubbish and this was usually leaves and grass. Gerry and I would usually take this rubbish to the bin at the top of the property.
I never observed anything strange in the vehicle at any time that I was in it.
I noted some unpleasant smells on a number of occasions which I think have come from the twins' nappies. Discarded nappies were collected in rubbish bags and held until thrown into the rubbish bins, thereby provoking smell."
I have always thought that getting rid of garden rubbish in a rented villa was a funny thing to do and that should be the gardener's job? And nappies hanging around long enough to become unpleasant is just plain scummy! Why on earth would they be "collected in rubbish bags and held until thrown..."? Surely you would get rid of a soiled nappy immediately? It isn't evident from his statement whether the "unpleasant smells" came from the car or the villa.
