Party for Madeleine on her Seventh Birthday


By ANTONELLA LAZZERI

Published: Today



MADELEINE McCann's little brother and sister will today mark
her seventh birthday with a family tea party.



Five-year-old
twins Sean and Amelie will be joined by relatives and friends at their
home in Rothley, Leics.
A spokesman for mum Kate,
42, told how her daughter's third birthday since vanishing on holiday in
Portugal was "particularly painful".
But both she
and husband Gerry, 42, "still have hope and that keeps them strong".
Kate said: "The 12th is obviously a day when we should
be celebrating with Madeleine."
The twins still
talk often about their sister.
Kate recently
revealed: "Amelie said, 'Mummy, she might speak another language'. And
Sean said to me, 'Never give up, Mummy'. I just said, 'Don't worry, I
won't do that. None of us will'."

I'm not a mother so I suppose I can't say much, except that I don't think I would have a party! I think I would just take the whole family to church, and ask the kids to say a prayer for their sibling, and remember her and light a candle.

Oh I'm sure the McCanns will already be looking to celebrating Maddie's 18th, 21st, etc - the nation will be no doubt expected to commemorate the milestones by holding street parties and fund-raising events to raise money for the 'search'. The McCanns will, of course, have expanded their online shop into a large shopping emporium bursting at the seams with Maddie tack - mugs, plates, tiny tears dolls, toy play apartments (complete with toy abductors), Kate's make up range, travel packs complete with hunt the abductor games to keep the kids entertained and age progression images of Maddie aged 80).
The Sun will kindly give us the opportunity to choose which wedding dress Madeleine will wear for her wedding and we will be able to gaze in awe at the list of celebs expected to attend the glittering occasion - perhaps the kindly abductor will even give her away on her big day.

Madeleine McCann would be seven years
old today. All across Britain there are other little girls celebrating
their seventh birthday – and it is a matter of supreme indifference to
all except those related to them.
Not Madeleine though, for she, unwittingly, belongs to all of us.

She had no say in her celebrity. It was
foisted upon her young shoulders; by her parents, by a willing media, by
the pyjamahadeen.

Over the course of the past three years,
she has shifted from being the essential icon for missing children
everywhere, to being the badge of office for the Righteous on both sides
of the ‘free speech’ debate. No newspaper article touching on libel is
complete without a mention of ‘Our Madeleine’.

Today, on her birthday, a thousand blogs
and forums will fire into life – this one too – with their version of
the truth as handed down in the great Internet scrolls.


“I read it somewhere – I agreed with it –
Therefore it is the truth”

It is the mantra of our age. An age when
we dismiss the Holy scriptures from myriad faiths – “written a 100
years after he died – he wasn’t there, how can he know” “Hearsay” “I can
point you in the direction of something that says the complete
opposite” “We have no proof” – and yet we cling, fanatically, to
anything written on the Internet.

“There is someone out there in
cyberspace, I know not who they really are, but they have written that
with which I agree, verily I shall follow them. It is written therefore
it shall be repeated; and any attempt to stop me repeating it shall be
dismissed as censorship. I demand the right to repeat my ‘truth’ as
found on the Internet.”

And yet, and yet – it is only ‘my’ truth
that shall be repeated. A conflicting opinion must be squashed,
vilified, removed from the Internet. Its espouser silenced, fired by
their employer, hunted down, identified, exposed, and yeah ducked in the
village pond – if they float we shall know we were right and burn them
at the stake.

For free speech on the Internet is not a
universal right, it is only for those who hold the ‘truth’, the
Internet ‘truth’, the ‘truth’ that they read somewhere.

‘Our Madeleine’ has spawned a thousand
forums adorned with her image, the mysterious child who vanished. They
fight, as did the medieval crusaders, under banners that proclaim their
allegiance. The abduction. The murder. The neglect. They hold prayer
meetings; they read from their cut and pasted versions of the Holy
truth, the edited versions of the Internet ‘case files’. The half
truths, the speculation, the gossip, the discarded theories, of a
botched investigation in progress. Halted prematurely. Halted before
Madeleine’s fate was discovered.

She will go down in history, will
Madeleine. In 100 years, nay in 500 years, there will still be groups of
people gathering late at night to practise McCluedo, the ancient art of
gathering scraps of information, translated from the Portuguese, into
Spanish, into English and back again, losing a little, gaining a little,
each time, and held proudly aloft as evidence of the wickedness of
those who believe an alternative version.

Madeleine is not the icon of missing
children, nor is she the standard bearer for free speech; she is the
spirit of our age. The ephemeral ghost of the lost art of allowing an
alternative opinion to be voiced.

Ancient man gave us the Bible because we
needed something to believe in, something to fight over. Something to
feel righteous in supporting. Something to feel righteous in rejecting. A
reason to kill and maim, torture and torment, bludgeon and silence,
those who rejected our ‘truth’. Now we have the Internet Scrolls.

Happy Birthday Madeleine. It is surely
only a matter of time before May 12th becomes a Bank Holiday.
Madeleine Day. When excited children open their Madeleine presents; and
exhausted Mothers cook the annual Madeleine feast. When entire families
gather in their chosen sub-forum and dutifully intone ‘Our Madeleine,
who art in…….we don’t actually know’, and the collection plate is handed
round to support the bandwidth of the High Priests of our version of
the truth.
It is surely only a matter of time, too, before someone is killed in
the name of ‘Our Madeleine’.

Quite Autumn.

The way I read this article by Anna Raccoon, all the people either directly associated to Madeleine or those who have associated themselves to her in some way, have largely lost sight of the fact that an innocent child is missing, unaccounted for. Instead, while paying lip service to Madeleine McCann, they have either turned her into a money making machine or a war trophy.

Like Raccoon herself then, except she additionally uses the lass to take the moral high ground.
