I guess if any further evidence was needed that the BBC news and current affairs dept. needs to be disbanded this might be it.
To invite a couple, who have not yet been formally eliminated from the involvement in the disappearance of their daughter, onto a current affairs programme is utterly irresponsible.What are they going to lecture the British people about?
The BBC is out of touch and setting appalling standards.

Marr might grow a pair and grill them why they are fronting the hacked off campaign when they invited the media and didnt object when they were towing the line.

Andrew Marr is recovering from a stroke. The programme is hosted by someone else at the moment I believe.

The presenter will actually be Eddie Mair about whom I know nothing.

An interesting other guest is Sinead O'Connor who has a reputation of being a loose cannon. I wonder what she thinks about the McCanns?

She may well look at them and think 'nothing compares to you'

She is also very outspoken on the subject of child abuse....but no, she'll be on there plugging something or other no doubt.

This seems like a mini McScamm fest, what with them trawling Siberia for Madeleine, they are busy people ! What a COINCIDENCE that the court verdict is due this week.

Eddie Mair does the 5pm news programme on BBC Radio 4, sometimes does Any Questions, and has been presenting Newsnight on occasions.

I expect this will be all about the McCanns and the 'Hacked Off' campaign pulling out all the stops to try to force Cameron into agreeing to their demands for direct government control of the media. As if they haven't already got Clarence.

Cameron just wants a new stronger complaints body.

For all those who do NOT want Gerry McCann-style government control of the media, there is Tony's petition on the Prime Minister's website to sign. It OPPOSES the campaign by the McCanns and 'Hacked Off':

Has anyone managed to "sign" the petition opposing press control? I'm getting a message saying that I can't sign twice. Needless to say, I haven't done so before.

Yes, all of a sudden, the 'Hacked Off' campaign has decided on a media blitz, with all guns blazing, the most powerful weapon in their armoury being, not Hugh Grant - but Gunner Gerry McCann.

P.S. I thought that the tipsy gypsy who told Raymond Hewlett he had masterminded the capture of Madeleine in between Gerry's long stop in the loo and Jane Tanner's sighting of a man (or was it a woman) said he had stolen her for a wealthy North African family? If only, if only, Wayne Hewlett hadn't burnt that mystery man's letter. Or maybe the mystery man can recall what Hewlett wrote on his death-bed? Did he perhaps write 'Morocco' with his failing hands and eyesight, and Wayne thought it said 'Ukraine'? If only we had a few more facts

So many missed opportunities, Sharon!

There are currently 1,325 signatures. It was 1,324 a few minutes ago

I signed it a little while ago and it went through without any problem. I did notice that the number count didn't go up when I signed it and when the email confirmation came through but I went back onto the website and the counter had gone up.

I think that might have been 'you crayon'

I've already signed the petition. No problems.

I'm reading this through my fingers. However a sliver of hope remains - (dare I say, window of opportunity may be jemmied open).

How apposite that the fates should conspire to bring together Kate McCann and Sinead O'Connor on a seductively cosy Sunday morning sofa to talk about, ooh let's see - the inherent wickedness of the world? the silenced voices of children caught in a wilderness of abuse and untold suffering?

Ms O'Connor has just unleashed an excoriating denunciation of Cardinal Ratzinger's career in covering up child abuse within the confraternity of the faithful. If she is calling the pope's resignation "His greatest act" I'm all ears to find out what his nadir might have been. Will she turn to Kate McCann and say: "Nothing compares to you".

I very much hope this savvy lady is up to speed on the McCann farago. It all depends if she's a one-trick pony or she has done her homework and joined the dots.

An interview with Clarence Mitchell was played on the Eddie Mair radio programme in 2011 on the issue of phone-hacking. Here's a link to a transcript of the interview:

I got that message too and certainly don't remember having signed it already. Very odd.

I had that too, but couldn't recall having signed it already. My PC has been a bit slow so I put it down to that and "moved on" !!

I would imagine Kate & Gerry have carefully vetted and approved all questions so I am not expecting much of an interview.

Jean I have just signed the petition without a problem.
