It is throwing down the gauntlet to Redwood all right, defiant and arrogant.

 The wording you have highlighted in red reads to me exactly the same as when it was posted on another thread dealing with OFM site, some weeks ago, when there was a lively debate about this statement and a discussion of almost certain [AR] and impossible to be certain [ Team McCann]. SEMANTICSRUS.

 Must go and re -read that thread to spot any differences, but just reading your post now, I do not see any change in the wording.

In that case, I missed the other posting, sorry

Tony, this was posted on the lively thread " McCanns dispute Redwood's dismissal of Tannerman".  The crucial thing is, it is still there, still ignored despite the conflict with SY who are going down another route. It is very interesting, isn't it? Left there SEEMINGLY with the blessing of SY.

 [ I also posted the official Met site update from OCTOBER 2013, which could not be clearer that HE IS GONE AND IN THE FILE MARKED CLOSED ].

Have you seen these men? Do you know who they might be?

These two pictures show a man carrying a child away from the family's apartment. This sighting was seen by a witness at 21:15 on the evening of Thursday, May 3rd, 2007.

Based or more recent information, the Metropolitan Police now believe this man may represent a guest at the Ocean Club who was carrying his daughter back to their apartment. However as it is not possible to be certain that these two men are actually the same person, if you have seen this man in the pictures or suspect who it may be, please contact the Metropolitan Police's OPERATION GRANGE on 0207 321 9251 (0044 207 321 9251 from outside the UK) or Operation.Grange@met.pnn.police."

@russiandoll wrote:PP,  what a great [ simple yet nail -on- the -head ] analysis. Why I posted the JFK quote to go with my membership here.

 The media are mighty and CM and co are all about PR.

 The police will happily allow the smoke and mirrors to continue while they get on with establishing facts and go where the evidence leads them, they are interested in establishing what happened not what was claimed to have happened, imo.

The truth will out eventually as the lid is off the pot, it is just a matter of dogged hard work and patience.


Is Tannerman still on OFM?  If so, it is allowed to stay by the police because they are not interested in him any more but are fully aware of why he is there , imo.  He can be ignored as he is not interfering with their new lines of enquiry, and the SY site makes them very clear, regardless of media misdirection and spin.

@PP clapping 

I agree with your comments russiandoll but I think that the police are in a position where they cannot comment or take action to stop the spin coming from the McCann side.

When Tannerman was eliminated, the reason given was that he had been traced.

To stop the spin or refute all the tales of burglars, Roma, etc. etc. would require the police to give explanations as to why these various swarthies are not considered suspects.

If the articles published this weekend were not meant as distractions, maybe they were fishing expeditions to draw out information about the investigation.

That the police don't feel the need to comment, in my opinion, is a good sign.

Poe, that's what I've also thought. CM and co may well be trying to get information about the investigation by prompting SY to comment. They are so keen to keep stating that SY are keeping them up to date with all developments, but I doubt they are. Where's this assistente  status they were supposed to be receiving?

On reading the small print, it became apparent that the McCanns' criminal lawyer in Portugal said they 'may apply' for assitente status which is somewhat different to the impression given that it was, effectively, a done deal.  

On reading some other small print, it became apparent to me that the fact Madeleine is a Ward of Court would seem to preclude any possibility that either or both of her parents can be given assistente status as parental responsibility for the child is vested in the Court.

Post by ChippyM on 10.02.14 11:43

A couple of things that to me are questionable about this story,

Firstly, the dark haired man that kept 'popping up'. Is it possible that he was attracted to the woman? He may have shown interest in her daughter as a way to win her confidence

The 3 or 4 restaurants 'all with the same staff.'  How did these staff manage to work at all these restaurants simultaneously?   This actually sounds a bit paranoid to me, to think they had planned to follow her .

With all the touching, and stroking of the child going on, wouldn't any normal mother tell the bloke to F off!?

If you had been drugged and felt 'really dizzy', how exactly would you manage to rugby tackle the swarthy foreigner WHILST grabbing your child?....then you run back to your hotel and don't phone police to arrange a drug test, or go to hospital. Your caring mum doesn't even bother either!

Why was the mother not drugged, presumably she could have rescued the child, which would have spoiled the kidknap plan? Did the grandmother just sit like a sack of spuds when the foreign woman picked up her grandchild?

    ...so many questions   wft

Well that's good news that the assistente status is beyond their grasp! Re same staff popping up repeatedly - I've been on holiday to a resort in Cyprus a couple of times now, and I also noticed that the same staff could be seen in more than one bar/restaurant.  I also saw people serving dinner one day and breakfast the next. Honestly it didn't 'creep me out'. I thought what hard working people they were!

A SALUTARY TALE FOR OFFICERS AT OPERATION GRANGE?

http://www.standard.co.uk/news/crime/plebgate-row-pc-keith-wallis-given-12-month-jail-sentence-9112442.html

“Police officers must be deterred from misconduct and the public must be able to see that condign punishment will be visited upon officers who betray the trust reposed in them.”

He had convinced himself he had witnessed the Plebgate incident based on “a vivid and compelling video in his head,” the court heard.

The son of a police officer, he was said to be “mortified” at the shame he had brought on the Met.

Wallis had 30 years’ service in the Met, including 17 years in the Diplomatic Protection Group before Plebgate blew up in September 2012.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I still TRUST DCI Redwood (just!) and hope he won't ever have to say he was 'mortified' with shame at the eventual outcome of Operation Grange.
....................................................................
On the 'convincing himself' bit 'based on a vivid and compelling video in his head'

Is it possible that KM and GM and JT have also 'convinced themselves in their heads, vividly and compellingly' that Madeleine WAS 'abducted'?

Despite them, collectively, not providing a scintilla of 'evidence' that an 'abduction' did, actually, in fact, occur.
-----------------------------------------------

Is there an alternative 'meaning' for collective 'convincesation' (is that even a word?) other than 'cover-up'?

But of course dear boy, of course, before one can even begin to convince others, one first has to convince oneself.

http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/501979-madeleine-mccann-case-another-mother-claims-gypsy-kidnappers-tried-to-take-her-child/

So they spiked her drink to steal her child, but they FORGOT to spike her mothers drink that's why they got away!

The 25 yr old man was too chatty, so she thought he wanted to snatch her child.
The couple who also spoke told her that they missed their child, so she thought they too wanted to snatch her child. 

Understood.

I presume he went through the 'Nothing to declare' exit. big grin

I always thought that was "tongue in cheek" but may have been wrong.
Certainly didn't come up when we were in PdL together shunting shutters and poking around the Smithman sighting area, or going out to the West

We went out along the coast to the west, to follow the mobile phone triangulations
Budens, Burgau, Salema, Sagres (nice sardine lunch, in the sun !) then further inland Vila de Bispo, and so on.
Lots of little villages, each with its own cemetery, each with its own beach, some with forts, much with "lawless Hinterland"
It looks a small area on a map, but when you try to second guess it becomes a big task.
But it led to some serious "theory purporting"

Anyone care to hazard a guess at what tomorrow's, Sunday 16th February 2014,  'WORLD EXCLUSIVE' Maddie 'story' will be on the FRONT page of the Sunday Mirror or Sunday Express?

Or is it the Daily Star Sunday's 'turn'?

Mirror 'exclusive'

"MADDIES FACE APPEARS ON SLICE OF TOAST!"

"I just couldn't believe it" says TrulyAwful73, "it just appeared as the slice of toast popped up. I truly believe this is a sign and i phoned the Met team straight away and i am waiting for the Met police investigators to come and collect this piece of toast erm, 'evidence'"

The spokesman for the McCann's said 'this is a significant developement in the case and Kate and Gerry are on tenterhooks, to see if the piece of toast has any connections to EGG man, idenified as the abductor of Madeleine by their friend, Jane Tanner'

Sunday Express 'World Eggclusive'

"EGG MAN CONNECTED TO MADDIE IMAGE ON TOAST"?............'SUSPECT'!

DCI Redwood of the Maddie Cops said, "although i cannot go into details, for operational reasons, I can confirm that a dozen eggs have been interviewed"

A source close to the McCanns said " the police, have kept Kate and Gerry fully informed and have told them they lined up the eggs and tapped them all, with a teaspoon, to see which one would crack first"

"Unfortunately, most of them were hard boiled criminal eggs and haven't, as yet, 'cracked'
