The most recent enhanced image purports to show Madeleine aged 6. She is now 10.
Why have they not bothered paying for another one ?
Ah, yes, PAYING. That might be seen as a waste of money.

I actually thought that enhanced image showed a 10-year-old, sooner than a girl of 6.
Perhaps a matter of saving money? A bit like buying children's clothes 1 or 2 sizes too large, so that they can wear them longer ...

Snipped from the Daily Express article

She (Kate) wants tourists to put up “present-day” pictures of Madeleine, who vanished in 2007, in resorts across the world."

Now I think Kate needs to help us holidaymakers out here. Where are we supposed to place them? How does Kate place the posters of her daughter on her travels? Perhaps she can give us some tips on how to overcome any objections we may encounter.

In our holiday resort whilst relaxing with our family are there ten top tips from Kate as to how we can spend a few minutes away from our 'self-indulgence' and approach local businesses, airports, hotels etc with the posters of Madeleine? Should we hand them out on the plane?

I know, why not a beach bag with the updated photo!

Or even better, a beach bag with the picture of the evil perverted predatory paedo**** so that everyone can look out for him / her / it.
Beach towels could have the picture as well.
Vigilante groups could patrol the beaches and beat up anyone who was foreign or swarthy, or who had spots, or no face, or who limped or muttered or smelled of garlic, or spoke in a funny language.
Great fun !

Are these photo's (£1.75 for a holiday pack of various goodies) self-adhesive? or should we pack a bit of double sided sticky tape?

We know the car stickers are self-adhesive - Nina, a well respected member of this forum who donated to the fund Limited Company (in Spain) put one in her car and had her car daubed in marker pen. Has Kate suffered the same on her travels?

Which particular paedo suspect will be featured on bags though?

http://jillhavern.forumotion.net/t2371-18-faces-of-suspects-which-should-we-look-for?highlight=18+faces

Perhaps they could all be featured and the idea would be to collect them all - like those Star Wars and Jungle Book stickers my son used to collect, ending up with loads of the same and missing a few that couldn't be found anywhere.

I wonder how many products have been bandied around in the McCann Company meetings.

The bookmark (Harry Potter - J.K. Rowling) was a one-off wonder. Cuddlecat - well that was a step explored imo. There's been no particular support from Branson who could have had Madeleine related product galore doled out on flights. There's no FREE Madeleine posters stuffed into the Sunday supplements on the eve of Brit holiday season....

Just thinking aloud.

Did Kate carry Maddie's age-progressed picture for distributions when she went on her bewk promotion trips or even her latest trip to PDL?
Did she stick Maddie's picture all over her luggage, hand carrier, and every piece of bag she was travelling with?

She has a flaming cheek expecting tourists to do what she didn't do.

If and when she proactively stands outside Travel Agencies distributing Maddie's age-progression picture, then maybe she can be taken seriously.

No T-Shirt with Maddie face on, Kate?

No fly-posting posters on walls, Kate?

http://videos.sapo.cv/6UV9hbN1ADgR6C8zRyiw

Not wearing a T-Shirt with Maddie face on, Kate?

Not carrying posters to be fly posted everywhere, Kate?

Two DIFFERENT days in her recent trip to PDL!

Seems like NO posters being carried, ready to be plastered everywhere, or wearing t-shirts with maddie as a three year old being worn by either Hubbard or little 'miss popular'!

SHE didn't put up a SINGLE poster, during her 'visit'!
But expects 'mugs' er, holiday makers to, and actually PAY her for the priviledge!

?
If too bashful to personally put up posters during her recent PDL visit, couldn't some of those faithful friends in the village KMcC went to see have gone round on with publicity materials on her behalf? Did even the faithful Mrs H fail to volunteer to be once more of service? Could she not have simply stood outside the church and held up one of the posters for even a short time if no-one else were willing to display them. Nothing like the personal touch.

Or is the truth that the crack PR team simply didn't think of co-ordinating the PDL visit with the launch of the summer 2013 campaign? How very strange when one is apparently trying to raise awareness via holiday makers globally, one apparently overlooks folks living or visiting Portugal, only the place where "it" all happened, after all.

Anyone wishing to purchase the holiday pack or Madeleine products from the findmadeleine.com website will have to register with Google Wallet. Only payment option I can see. What happened to paypal?

Anyway, Google Wallet info from Wiki

Question for Ma Healey. Why don't YOU go to PdL to put up these posters for your missing granddaughter with the same brazen attitude you gave to the TV presenter in the interview you gave which has recently been discussed on this forum? Come on, march in there and MAKE the hotels, cafes, shops, taxis etc put up these posters. Will you do it? Or am I pi$$ing in the wind?

The "do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do" theme runs through the whole McCann thread. It's the same with people they think have questions to answer. Kate refused to answer 48 police questions yet urges people to speak to their PIs and the police.

As we said a long time ago, A "hellish Lair" within 10 miles radius from PdL, which is what their Private Detective has said, and a position from which TM either directly, nor through Mitchell, nor through any of their highly paid lawyers, has ever resiled - so we assume this is what they believe - because this is what the are telling us. . .
gives us a total area of
10 x 10 x pi = 100 x 3.1214 = 312 square miles

But half of that is in the sea, so we have 150 square miles.
Within that area is PdL, Lagos, several more villages, two golf courses, and a lot of agricultural land, and then some hills.
Since the "hellish lair" must be out of town, as it described as being with the "lawless hinterland" and therefore away from roads and settlements, and nowhere near a golf course, we may suppose that the area to be searched is perhaps 50 square miles. Probably much less.
A helicopter with heat seeking equipment could cover that very thoroughly within two days.
The search for April J's remains covered far more ground than that in 6 months.

Are we surprised that the McCanns sacked him. Hellish Lair Chloroform man

Perhaps it's the SEA area that needs 'searching?
Remember Gerry and Payne 'went out again' at 4 am.
When the police had supposedly all 'gone home' and given up the 'search' for the night.
According to John McCann and Kate McCann.
Where did they go?
A boat ride?
You can go quite a distance out to sea, in say 10/15 minutes, in a speed boat.
4am. back by 4:20/30am.
No one any the wiser.
Who's going to question a 'grieving' father and his 'friend'.........'searching'?
Maybe that's why Kate only 'feels' close to Maddie, in PDL.
Who knows? It just a theory, which Gerry McCann says he dosen't mind me having.

If they have a missing child that they're desperate to recover why would it be too bashful or too anything to do something constructive and concrete about it. Just talking is no good.
How can they expect others to do IT for them then when they did nothing. It's like preaching one thing and doing another.
No wonder people see through them. So transparent!

You know they have the power to summon the press to cover her trip and every move if they wished so what better way than to be photographed with Maddie's age progression pic on her possessions. What's stopping her? Why waste air time talking and no action, it just does not add up.

On a recent holiday, the usual much needed week in the sun for Brits, there were quite a few parents and grandparents with their children. This was a package holiday and guests dined in the same hotel areas.

In the dining areas were high-chairs for children and it was lovely to see families all chattering together around their tables. It was all so natural that the babies and toddlers were part of everything. In the evenings parents brought their children to dinner. There were no over-wrought, over-tired, screaming toddlers and babies that I recall as they were given attention and included in everything. Some babies were asleep in pushchairs. The hotel staff were particularly attentive and happy to serve families with children.

After dinner some of these families retired to their rooms, put their children to bed and sat on their balconies with a glass of wine. Other families sat on the terraces around the bar with their children (some asleep in pushchairs) to have a drink and enjoy the entertainment.

During the day the kiddies' pool was well used. Parents brought toys to the pool area. There were mums and dads in the main pool with their toddlers and babies who were all having a great time. One particular baby was a complete star and to hear him giggle (that belly laugh babies have) when his dad bobbed him up and down in the water was a joy to everyone around the pool. What a little munchy!

There was a little boy of around five or six who joined in with 'the blokes' in the big pool who were happy to play water pistols, lilo racing and ball with him - he was one of the team. His parents sat on sunbeds keeping an eye on their son.

Another couple with a baby had come with their parents. That child had a fabulous holiday as did the whole family. The parents shared the childcare.

That's a family holiday. It's about having fun with your kids. It's not about routines - it's a time to take a break from routine and focus on your kids. It's not 'me' time it's 'them time', 'family time'.

There are an awful lot of families out there who have precisely this type of holiday - ordinary people - responsible people - caring families.

This is what I find so difficult to understand about the McCann's view of reasonable parenting and their wish for holidaymakers to distribute posters of Madeleine - the little girl who was palmed off to a creche and put to bed in an unlocked apartment every evening.

What i find so difficult to understand is the SY review team 'reluctance' to re-interview the last people that 'saw' Madeleine and the people that were in the group that were with Madeleine in PDL, as very experienced police officers, albeit retired, have repeatedly called for.
If need be 'leave' the protected parents (Metropolitan police commisioner who launched balloons in support to raise money for the parents, who, by their own admission left their children alone, out of sight, every night of their holiday) for the time being and re-interview just their 'friends' without telling the parents.
Has a serving Chief Police officer before, or after Madeleine went 'missing' ever taken part in a fund raising event to raise funds for the parents of a missing child, in their police force area?
If, as we are told, over 2000 children go 'missing' every week, how on earth does any police force manage to function when their Chief Constable is off attending 'fund raising' events every day, for the missing' children on his manor?

Missing People the charity has ACPO and ACPO Scotland endorsement. Their logos are presented prominently on the home page. How many charities do the 'impartial' police of UK endorse with their logo?
