Thanks for posting that. It's interesting to be reminded from time to time that doubt existed from the outset, but makes it all the more curious why there was such an effort to focus on an alleged happening for which there still remains no firm evidence after all these years.

The truth will out.

I agree its surprising it hasn't been 'wooshed'.

Trouble with a lot of the old stories is that when you open them, on the face of it, it looks like todays news with todays date. Sometimes they put the original date under the heading, but not in this case. If you google the headline it usually gives you a clue.

Just in case ! !
British diplomat warned Foreign Office of concerns over McCanns
The Foreign Office was alerted to fears over Gerry and Kate McCann by a British diplomat in Portugal just days after their daughter Madeleine went missing.
The diplomat was sent to the holiday resort of Praia da Luz in the days following the four-year-old's disappearance and soon became concerned over "inconsistencies" in the testimonies by her parents and their friends.
After visiting the McCanns, the unnamed diplomat sent a report to the Foreign Office in London, admitting his worries about "confused declarations" of the McCanns' movements on the night of May 3.
He also noted the couple's "lack of co-operation" with the Portuguese police.
The diplomat's concerns were made over four months before Gerry and Kate were named arguidos (suspects) on September 7.
Contents of the letter were leaked to Belgian newspaper La Dernière Heure over the weekend.
The diplomat expressed his fears after receiving instruction from the Foreign Office to provide "all possible assistance to the McCann couple".
The French-language paper printed excerpts of the letter, quoting the diplomat as saying: "With the greatest respect, I would like to make you aware of the risks and implications to our relationship with the Portuguese authorities, if you consider the possible involvement of the couple.
"Please confirm to me, in the light of these concerns, that we want to continue to be closely involved in the case as was requested in your previous ­message."
Although the Government was quick to assist the McCanns in the days following Madeleine's disappearance, direct contact with the couple ceased when they were named as suspects.
La Dernière Heure pointed out that a majority of the diplomats originally involved in the case have now been taken off it.
The then-Prime Minister Tony Blair sent special envoy Sheree Dodd to act as a "media liaison officer" for the pair soon after Madeleine vanished.
Ms Dodd has since resigned from the Foreign Office, while the British consul in the Algarve, Bill Henderson, has retired.
John Buck, the British ambassador in Portugal, no longer works in the country.

Wowzer.    IIRC the Mail "made a donation" but said they would not apologise, so I am not surprised this is still available.

The newspapers are waiting for news I believe and they have been known to wait many, many years for the opportunity.    If Mr. & Mrs. lose the hearing in Portugal I think the papers will get a good few days out of it, unless of course they are advised not to because of the ongoing investigation by PJ and SY?

If I forget to add it to a post everything is In My Opinion and I don't know anything for sure.

Google Kate and Gerry McCann Daily Mail and several come up, including the Hotlips Healy one. I don't recall this happening before. Seems to be only the D M ..... at the moment.
