The Sun front page has the headline "COPS SWOOP ON PARENTS" ...

... but unfortunately it is about some overweight boy.

Like the Mcs have always done what the police advised them. i.e. "Do not advertise her eye defect" blah blah

Yes. Like the time they suggested Kate answer 40 fairly routine questions.

I just noticed that the Guardian article was written by Josh Halliday, who wrote the the interesting tweets about the dig on the evening of the 4th. He's actually in Praia da Luz.

Can someone look on the desktop Facebook page for OFM? I looked on my phone and it looks like the post from webmaster is gone. I know that someone couldn't find it before but I did scroll down and there was nothing there, only the message from Tom and Gerry, sorry Kate and Gerry.

I wonder whether it's deliberate...might be a different case, but anyone connected with certain doctors, that "knows", might miss the odd heartbeat if they just see the headlines.

The fact that the Guardian has despatched a journalist to PdL suggests to me that the paper knows something of significance and, like the rest of us, is waiting... tick tock.

Some people are speculating that the McCann's are in a 'safe house' for their own protection.
Pity Madeleine wasn't.

I know this was posted in a slightly lighthearted way, but to me it underlines the utter madness and hypocrisy of our Government and press. Madeleine and this boy are both the victims of parents who have made poor parenting choices (though I strongly doubt the boy's parents have the benefit of the same medical training that the Drs McCann will have had to make choices beneficial to their children).
But the parents who are in trouble are not the ones who managed to lose their three year old while, according to their own description of what happened, they left her unsupervised in an unlocked flat while they had fun with their friends down the street. They're the ones who still know exactly where their child is but have overfed him. The losers of the three year old are the recipients of millions of pounds from the public and pages of laudatory why-oh-why columns by thick hacks; the over-feeders are arrested.

So now it wasn't that the McCanns were asked NOT to go to PDL it was that they were NOT asked to go!

Excellent post!   clapping 

This whole case has beggared belief from the outset. That some people can't see it also more than astounding.

Exactly Miraflores!  They went against police advice many times. Releasing images of Madeleine's distinctive eye & attending Lisbon court are only 2 examples!

Poor, poor Madeleine lost in their smoke and mirrors campaign

Yes they initially 'lied' in the wording because of how it sounded and they didn't expect it to reach the press/social media but it has so they have re worded it to make it the truth

I thought they also elaborated on why they were asked not to go re causing a big fuss and distraction etc so a huge lie from the start embellished with back up lies
They are unreal

Sky has written something similar to the Guardian but without the OFM content. Not sure if comments are allowed in the Guardian, but on Sky.. here are some the like of which I have not seen allowed until recently-

Freedom of speech remember. you have your opinion and you are right to express it but so is everyone else. Until they find the truth then every speculative story could be true. The only reason there are so many conspiracies flying around is because the Police didnt do their job correctly in the first place.

SKY why the hell are you allowing comments on this?. You wouldn't usually. We have the usual, this time, amateur police detectives out thinking they know more than the police. Thinking they know it was the parents. For Gods sake, if it was the parents why would they have fought to keep this in the spotlight all these years. They would want it to die down and go away.

I could go on, however it's a waste of time as those of you who can't think out of the box and think you know more than the police, who are trained.

Yet again some of you think the Portuguese police who have been found to have botched the whole case are right, then with the next breath the British police are wrong.

You couldn't make some of this stuff up being written. It would be funny if this case wasn't so tragic

This investigation should have been allowed to run its course without interference from Britain in 2007.
How on earth can the British Police start an investigation with the words 'the parents and their friends are not suspects'?
The Portuguese certainly thought they were suspects.
Maybe now is the time for them to be MADE to go back and do a reconstruction according to their many and varied statements at the time. Why they ever refused to do this is beyond me, and just one fact that makes me suspect that the 'abduction' story was made up from the start. Madeleine deserves no less than the truth.

@splifm8

Most of this should have been done before, true. However, do you even know what's been done before? I don't think you're in a position to call the police useless.

 There are many critical comments made where the people posting have reported abusive replies... these I would guess are from manic pros.

I know the original comment has been saved so they cant say they never put it like that, but, by changing it ,imo, they have pre-emptied the questions anyone would have about that comment in the Guardian .......course, they can now say it was an error with the wording and it has now been corrected .....talk about smoke and mirrors !

Reading all the cringeworthy messages of "love and support" on OFM, I couldn't help think how devastating this case is going to be to large numbers of people when the truth finally comes out.  The emotions of the public have been manipulated for 7 years to the point where I think it may have quite an impact on society when it's all finally exposed to be a sham.  Don't want to be all drama queen about it, but it could make people become much more cynical and guarded, permanently changing the way the public views cases like this in the future.

Official Find Madeleine Campaign To those commenting on why Gerry and Kate are not in Portugal, it's because they were asked to not go there. Please let the police do their job. 

And anyone posting their sanctimonious comments about leaving children alone will be banned. No questions asked. We've heard it all before. ENOUGH with the judging. 

~FM Webmaster



I copied this from the OFM fb page moments ago the wording is still 'asked not to', where was it reported they changed it to 'were not asked to'? Just interested if somebody is manipulating it back and forth literally as we post?

Somebody on the OFM page asked the question "But why aren't they in Portugal now?"
OFM replied - Because the met team did not ask Kate and Gerry to go to Portugal.

I have seen a copy of it on Twitter but no idea how to copy it over, technophobe that I am. If you do a twitter search on McCann hashtag 'Babalou' tweeted it this morning.
