Tuesday 12th March 2013. STILL LIVING IN THE PAST. Got a minute?



Here's
a little task for people with ten minutes to spare: look up "Goncalo
Amaral" on Google, varying it, if you like, by adding typical UK media
insult terms like "liar" and "shamed".

You'll
find that the UK press stopped abusing Amaral completely in spring last
year. The final story was a questionable, but by previous standards
harmless, piece on April 28 (long after everyone else had stopped) when
Martin Fricker of the Mirror squeezed out "the bungling cop who
led the botched Madeleine McCann investigation last night backed calls
for the case to be reopened."

Only two months before, in February 2012, the Mirror had still been writing about him in their traditional terms: "thrown
off the case in disgrace…made a fortune spouting lies…peddling his
outrageous claims…booted off the investigation…I don’t know how he
sleeps at night, knowing he’s cashing in on the tragic story".

Dossiers?
Does this mean that the famous "turn" in opinion against the McCanns has taken place?
Nope. It's purely to do with the lawyers. And the facts.
The
board of Trinity Mirror, in particular, as a PLC is open to a challenge
of putting shareholders' funds at risk if its long-term defamation of
Goncalo Amaral can be characterised as "clearly reckless": Tweeters may
wish to ask the company press office whether the board has considered
this risk.

Their
pursuit would be clearly reckless if they continued it while knowing
they had no prospective defence in truth or public interest for a
repeatedly defamatory campaign against him. The words quoted from the
February 12 story above are, unlike the words of April 28 but like
nearly all their previous stories on Amaral, quite clearly indefensible
– key in "Martin Fricker McCanns" for juicy examples.But then the
press, with its consistent ignorance of Portugal and Portuguese law,
assumed that Amaral was yesterday's goods and would lose his libel case
there: being sued by him in the UK was unlikely (he'd be too skint if he
lost, apart from anything else).


Lardy hack Fricker: fond of long junk food at his desk, made a salary spouting lies
The train now leaving…
All
that is, as the poets say, changed terribly. The last act began with
Goncalo Amaral's well aimed broadsides immediately before he went into
libel trial seclusion.

In
those interviews he strengthened and augmented all his original claims
against the McCanns (not the actions of a man looking for a way out),
dismissed their chances of succeeding ("the McCanns [legal] action is
inept"), mocked them for their ignorance of Portuguese law and the legal
process ("I am beginning to doubt the McCanns are aware of the decisions of the Portuguese courts"), hinted
that Isabel Duarte was letting the pair go nose-down kamikaze to keep
the fees coming in as long as possible, despatched the then
half-forgotten Metodo with
contempt ("creating bogus sightings"), thus presaging their downfall
this year, and pointed out the increasingly defeatist tone of the
pair's libel lawyer ("… some panic in the opposing side").

The
journalists could ignore these strong warning signs if they chose: the
lawyers could not, so in common with all the other UK nationals, the Mirror has
withdrawn from the Amaral defamation game. Under UK law libel
complaints have to be made within a year of the appearance of the
offending article so all of them are, just, covered, as long as they
continue to be good boys – which they most certainly will, both before
and after the McCanns' defeat in the libel case is announced.

…the poor sods behind
As
always those poor boobies, the activist McCann supporters, are out of
the loop and living in 2008. Key "Goncalo Amaral liar" into Google and
you will note the usual forum/blogger suspects all foaming madly against
Goncalo – but doing so alone. The media have left the losers behind and
moved on without a word.

Tuesday 12th March, 2013. A LITTLE CASE STUDY -2.


Gi' O'er@Mrsxxx Attention Blacksmith!! You missed this one when you were googling 'Amaral' & 'disgraced cop' from Sept 2012 http://www.dailystar.co.uk/posts/view/271373McCanns-will-miss-cop-s-trialMcCanns-will-miss-cop-s-trial #McCann


Gi' Oer was completely right: we had missed it. And when we posted yesterday that there was a second, changed version of the Star article we were completely wrong, mainly, it seems, because AS apparently can't fucking read.
So an apology to readers for the mistake and a grovelling apology to the poster Gi O'er for our mistake and the unjustified criticism.

It must be catching Wed 13th March 2013

Post by russiandoll on 13.03.13 14:29

The Independent, March 13:
'David Lammy, the once high-rising Labour MP, dropped a resounding
clanger on Twitter when he saw that a BBC journalist had tweeted from
Rome: “Will smoke be black or white?”
Showing
a gap in his knowledge of European history, he responded angrily: “This
tweet from the BBC is crass and unnecessary. Do we really need silly
innuendo about the race of the next Pope?”

Lammy,
who has apologised, after having the significance of the colour of the
smoke explained to him, can draw one grain of comfort from his
embarrassment: he has vastly increased his Twitter following. However,
quite a few of his new followers say they will be watching to see if he
does any more daft posts.'

We know just how he feels.
