Ben Needham's sister

Big article in tomorrows Daily Mail. With reference to Madeleine case.

E.g.
"
But while the ‘Maddie’ campaign to
find her, launched by her parents Gerry and Kate McCann, attracted
millions of pounds in donations and worldwide publicity, the Needhams
struggled on alone.
‘Unlike
the McCanns, we haven’t had the money to pay for publicists and private
detectives, we’ve just had each other and a lot of faith and
determination,’ Leighanna says.
‘I
think people have always seen us differently. The McCanns are GPs with
money, my mum is a single mother who lived in a council house."


And:
'Kate McCann said in the papers last
week that she’s reached the stage that she would be able to forgive
whoever abducted Madeleine – but we could never forgive the person who
took Ben.’

One of the comments:
"
Surely the McCanns can put some of their money towards Bens investigation. She's not the only missing child.

I have noticed recently that the papers are again using the word abduction in the McCann case.

The first line of this Ben Needham article reads -

"It was, until the abduction of Madeleine McCann,"

Interview with Uncle Stephen?

I hope so

At the risk of repeating myself (I keep posting this link when this topic comes up, and it wasn't new then):

Though, I'm sure the article I've read in the past didn't have all this info in it - I'm sure I would have remembered reading the bit about who the person they confronted was and why they did it.

It's so distressing to see such heartache and injustice.

And in the case of April Jones. With complete endorsement from David Cameron, Bonnie Tyler and Catherine Zeta Jones £62K was raised with most people deciding that money wouldn't fix anything. And I agree, each child's photo is equally memorized without the need for private funding.

So why are the McCanns getting away with this charade?

If you were to pass that 62k onto a certain 'charity' that is essentially about policy and research you can buy expertise in media campaigns at 100 pounds for a consultation if you ever suffer the loss of a loved one. You could even get your missing loved one onto a digital media screen in a major city (I'm not sure if that's for free as I don't understand the website - perhaps my education is lacking). You could even try to find out what a particular charity actually does (it'll take a lot of clicks past the constant 'donate' buttons and it probably won't make sense as you work through the labyrinth of non-speke which takes you back to the 'raising funds' function). You could try and volunteer for a certain charity and find the job spec alarming in its demands (and fund raising is high profile).

Alternatively you could imagine yourself in the position of having a loved one go missing and in your obvious highly emotional state logon to a certain 'charity' website and see how it swings into operation and helps.

Finn, it's scandalous imo.
