Presumably every single other newspaper front page in this mural featured wonderfully happy stories in which nobody suffered any harm or loss? Or was it just that the self-righteous Mr Gould couldn't understand any of the other newspapers because they were in foreign languages?

Yes, I wondered that too and went to make a comment but like you found 'no comments' for this article.

I don't blame the passengers for not wanting to pass that McCann article every day - I wouldn't want to either!

Cruise passenger left outraged by ship's Maddie McCann mural

A CRUISE passenger has complained about an artwork on his ship showing a newspaper story on the search for Madeleine McCann.

Published: Thu, September 4, 2014




Mr Gould complained about the artwork, which featured a Madeleine McCann story [MERCURY]

The artwork on the P&O ship Ventura depicts a row of people sitting and reading a selection of newspapers - one of which is the Sunday Times with a lead story on the search for missing Maddie.

But Michael Gould, 55, said that he did not believe the subject was suitable material to be displayed on a family-friendly vessel.

Madeleine McCann disappeared aged three in May 2007 while on holiday with her parents in the Praia da Luz resort in Portugal.

Despite extensive appeals and searches, her whereabouts have still not been discovered.

Dad-of-three Mr Gould, a company director, was on holiday with his wife Corinna and his youngest daughter Olivia on a cruise in early July round the Mediterranean.

He said the family had to walk past the artwork every evening to take Olivia, five, to a child's club on board the ship.

We found depicting the anguish of a family at their child's abduction a very odd subject to have on a child-friendly boat
Michael Gould

Mr Gould said: "I just thought it was a very odd piece of art, depicting the abduction of a child, to have on a family-friendly ship, we went past it every night to the child's club en route from our cabin.

"When I contacted P&O about it they more or less said 'well it's there'.

"P&O said the artist was depicting the sad realities of life, but I don't go on holiday to be reminded of the sad realities of life, I go on holiday to escape them.

"I'm disappointed P&O don't seem to have taken this seriously, and I think they're wrong." 

Mr Gould said he had emailed the company and had a reply that the mural was not going to be taken down.

He said: "It was a very successful holiday, it would not be the case to say the whole holiday was ruined by this.

"We found depicting the anguish of a family at their child's abduction a very odd subject to have on a child-friendly boat. 

"As parents, we found the piece of art wholly inappropriate." 

A spokesperson for P&O said: "The artist intended to depict a snapshot of the headlines and capture a moment in time through actual front pages."

Interesting that the artwork shows the infamous photo of the parents laughing and joking as they come out of church on the day of Madeleine's 4th birthday.

"Mummy ?"
Yes, Seanie."
What were you and Daddy laughing at ?"
"Errm, err, well, y'know we'd been working extremely hard, and errm, like, y'know it was . . . , Oh look, is that the time, What would you like for tea ."

Fascinating!

Who commissioned it I wonder?  Did they not know the Mccanns object to the circulation/display of jolly picture depicting them as happy and not one bit devastated at that lost of their daughter.  They kicked up a fuss over the netherlands book promotion pic when the press used it.  That one (the one of them posing happily in netherlands) appearing in the papers was a transitory thing whereas this one being a "mural" is a permanent fixture is much more damaging for their image.

Ten of thousands of passengers both Brits and foreigners doing the crossing are going to see the happy pairs on their royal walkabout collecting flowers and gifts on Maddie 4th B/day.  
They can't sue P&O I suppose or risk bringing unwanted attention to themselves.

What a peculiar mural full stop!

Six characters - three men, none of whom are sitting together.

Who is the guy reading the Times in the black and white shoes and bowler hat?

The fellow wearing the  brown trousers on sits like Gerry McCann is wont to.

Mr Far Right has a similar hairstyle to Simon Cowell.

All the ladies have very short skirts on...!

I wonder what the headlines on the other papers are...

...and who the man to the left of Kate is in the picture...?

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
