Good question.  Given that they were so heavily involved with organised prayer/vigil servies in PDL church it would not be unexpected that they would wish to return and offer prayers or light candles for their child while these investigations were ongoing.  Having endured the grief of not knowing whether their child is dead or alive for the past 7 years now, would it really add to the agony to be there at the location if anything were found relating to her disappearance?  If remains were uncovered, would it not be a final betrayal of this child to be absent once again.  Not to "be there" for her when she disappeared is one thing but to decide not to be there if/when found is difficult to comprehend.  Yes, of course it would be distressing, painful for any parent to endure but what about the child, life taken then hidden away for years until found by complete strangers and left in their hands.  This scenario is beyond sad and how they could opt not to be there, not one or the other, unfathomable.

Even if a body is discovered, all it proves is that she is dead, not WHO 'killed' her.

So is this a case of why dunnit and not who dunnit ?

Imo there's no mystery as to why they dunnit, aiyoyo, and, given that there would be no need to conceal the body if she'd met with a fatal accident, all that remains to be established is who caused the child's death

However, as there's no bar to convicting more than one party of causing the death of the same individual, there's no reason why justice can't be done in this case as it has been others where there has been an absence of a body and no certainty as to the identity of the killer. .

Without doubt one of the all-time classic quotes of the mystery.  For those who finish building the lego set, perhaps a game afterwards would be in order?  I remember this one rather cruelly being suggested on another forum way back.

The Libel trial lot even had their lines written out either by them or for them, and STILL fluffed them.

I can understand their not getting it right on the first night, but by the time of the rogatories you would have thought the Rothley secret meeting would have sorted it out.
But apparently not.
Could it be that some of them have consciences which do not permit them to go beyond a certain point ?
Or that weighing up what they were being asked to say, they realised that "Conspiracy to Pervert" was a real possibility,
and so started to gibber and dribble at that point.

On 'one reading of the evidence' it would seem that theTapas 7 are predominantly a self-entitled bunch of narcissists who felt no compunction about telling untruths to the PJ because they considered themselves to be above Portuguese law, and that apparent collective self-view has no doubt been compounded by the passing of years with no discernible knock on the door which has required them to individually account for the discrepancies in various of the statements each of them have made.

It's probable they have appraised themselves of the penalty if found guilty of conspiring to pervert Portuguese justice but, such would seem to be their disregard for the laws of Portugal, I suspect that only a charge of conspiracy which requires them to appear in an English court of law is likely to concentrate their minds on the desirability of self-preservation.

They may be lacking in conscience but they all possess necks and if it comes to sacrificing theirs to save the McCanns, I very much doubt that there'll be a Sydney Carton character among them.

To play devil's advocate re this -

Reply    ”There was nothing of that size that you could hide a,     a tennis racquet in or anything like that, it would have been just purely, if they had anything…”  [sputters to a halt as he realises the full horror of what he has just said]

It could be argued that the intelligent David P came out with those words because he knew where the police were going with their line of questioning ?


 I am merely playing devil's advocate btw. I keep in mind the recent words from SY to the press :

 Abduction might not follow with all our thinking on the case.

 There is a possibility that Madeleine did not leave the apartment alive.

 Taken together, the inference drawn is possible death in 5a or at least lying deceased for some time in 5a , then removal by a person or persons known to the child, not any type of stranger intruder, be the motivation burglary with accidental silencing of the awake child or entry with intent to abduct.

 I would be pushed to believe in a whitewash after hearing those words from SY.

Well of course they could
Kate's own Charity - Missing People - has the details of 140,000 children missing each year. A town the size of Blackpool, or Slough, of the entire Isle of Wight !
Just whooshed off the face of the earth - according to them PLEASE GIVE GENEROUSLY
So after 7 years there must be nearly a million missing children and that's just from the UK !
At least a hundred or so must be in PdL

Or have I missed the point somewhere ?

Re: McCanns will NOT return to Portugal

Post by rainbow-fairy on 03.06.14 1:42

Have been re-reading an old book on the Moors Murders and this leapt out at me. Quite apt:

'....As the grim search had been going on, two mothers, united in their anxiety, stood in the drizzle and watched. Sheila Kilbride and Ann Downey, hoping, praying. Hopes that their children, their son, their daughter, might somehow, somewhere, by some miracle, still be alive; that this was all some long, ghastly nightmare. And prayers that if they were dead they could, at last, be peacefully laid to rest.' ~ from 'Devils Disciples' by Robert Wilson

Contrast with the McCanns who have steadfastly refused to be in Portugal while the digs go ahead. 

I wonder how history will judge K+G's refusal?

That will be interesting, because whatever happens the McCanns wil be left with a list of unexplained things.
Issues which refuse to be whooshed.

Their admitted gross neglect of the children for five nights in a row
Exacerbated by their continuing to abandon the children even after a specific complaint by one of them
Further exacerbated by "increasing" the regularity of the checks - to one per hour
The fact of their being no evidence of entry to the apartment
The fact of there being no evidence of presence in the apartment
The fact of their being no evidence of exit form the apartment - and even their on original "version" on the window and shutters they themselves dismissed as a red herring
The sedation of the remaining children
The succession of changes in their official stories
Their clear and proven lies about many important issues
The dogs
Their refusal to assist the police
Their dismissal of any PI who raised a metaphorical eyebrow at their official version
The setting up of the Fund with indecent haste
Their retaining of the best Libel lawyers in the world
Their retaining of the most famous Extradition lawyers in the country
The retaining of a spokesperson whose understanding of Truth is rudimentary
and so on through Last Photos, extended holidays, visits to world locations . . .

the list is a long one.

And none of these will go away, whatever the result of Grange or the PJ's re-opening of the case.

And as someone has just pithily said in another place
Gerry is perfectly happy to return to Portugal if involves the chance of making large amounts of money
But not if it involves discovering what happened to Madeleine

Yes I do as well.   

Someone on a different thread mentioned Kerry Needham going back when police decided to undertake a search last year for Ben.   She was interviewed shaking like a leaf, worried about what might be found, be she insisted that she would not have stayed away no matter what might have been found.

And the bereft parents in the Dutroux case here in Belgium: likewise

BTW: they didn't ask for a single sou from the generous Belgium people, who would have jumped in no end to be of assistance
