That is simply your opinion Autumn.

Not just mine.

I don't think there's any documented case where parents have been so public with themselves and their childs apparent disappearance where they turn out to be guilty. Doesn't mean it's impossible but it's getting to near as damnit.

Can't argue with that.

I must say if they did 'it' they're taking a hell of a chance by suing Amaral, going back to Portugal, keeping Madeleine in the news and asking for a review or re-opening of the case.
How likely is that?


Yup, pretty darn cheeky.

Some would argue that it is to keep the cash coming in for their personal gain.

I don't see how, there is simply no evidence or even anything to suggest that they have gained financially from her disappearance, in fact if anything their own personal income will have dropped massively as Kate no longer works.

That's hardly financial gain. Two mortgage payments on the family home while they were in a foreign country for 5 months, no-one could afford to pay 5 months mortgage without an income, it's a bit reaching to call that financial benefit, considering the wording of the fund means essentially they could have spent it all on themselves, bit bizarre to get picky over .001% of it going to ensure Madeleines bedroom remains intact.

Of course there are some people who would prefer the Mccanns to be unemployed now, living off the state with their children in care.

What purpose would that serve?

I'm not sure that 'some people' care about there being a purpose.

I would have thought, under the circumstances, Gerry would have been given compassonate leave on full pay. Even though they were entitled to do so, I still think they were wrong to use the Fund to pay their mortgage.

I don't hold a strong opinion on it one way or another. It gave those with an agenda to parent-bash some ammunition but I can well understand that worrying about things at home would be the least of their worries, they were probably advised to do it by someone well meaning thinking it would be one less concern for them.

I thought it was perfectly clear - I donated to a Fund to help the McCann family find their daughter Madeleine. If that meant paying their Bills because they couldn't continue full time jobs then so be it.

For starters, Kate was not in full time employment. As for Gerry, I would be very surprised if he was not entitled to full pay on compassionate grounds. There is some interesting info about the Fund accounts and how money has been allocated on the MCF forum. :)

Apparently a supermarker delivery was due once they returned from holiday, a family member cancelled it from what I read.

I don't know about everyone else here but most of my family and friends have lost interest in the case and the McCanns. On a few occasions, f&f have been round at my house when the McCs have been giving a press conference on tv and, all of them showed little interest in them except to comment that they always seem to be suing someone. I think their opinions of the McCanns are probably typical of most people who have lost interest in the case. Then again, I may be wrong.

I think we have different opinions on what counts as 'interesting' though big grin

Besides the MCF forum is locked to keep out non believers.
