When pondering the future of this unsolved protracted case as regards the political stance, a brief reminder of what we are up against..

Does anyone really believe that a representative of the establishment, past present or future, is likely to break rank?

RE: Andrea Davis, in the box of people to the left of the three girls (one royal, one an MP who became a PM for a while, and one coquette) plus one bloke

I read Andrea's book, "Shoot the women first: How I became an intelligence agent". 

Does anybody who has also read it want to share notes?

Earlier today I was about to post-up a very very long epistle about Andrea Davison's alleged exposé of the Westminster child abuse cover-up, which led to her fleeing to the US of A - allegedly.

I hadn't got very far in before it struck me that the whole screed was totally bonkers - leading me to seriously doubt it's authenticity!  I think the woman, whoever she is, is a fantasist of the highest order, if not ever so slightly off balance.

Boris Johnson declares war on Whitehall 'waste' vowing to give taxpayers value for money

BORIS JOHNSON declared war on wasteful Whitehall projects yesterday in a new drive to provide better value for taxpayers. The Prime Minister tasked his entire Cabinet to "root out waste" in their departments so the Government can focus on the priorities set out in the Tories' general election manifesto.

Hundreds of projects will be scrutinised ahead of the March 11 budget with many likely to be axed if they do not come up to scratch. Mr Johnson and Chancellor Sajid Javid told ministers that “tough decisions” will be taken “in order to prepare the economy for the next decade”. The announcement of the review comes amid growing concerns about the cost of a number of big-ticket government spending items, most notably the planned HS2 high-speed railway project.

Every so-called “legacy project” – those started under a previous government - will be rated on whether they fit with the new administration's priorities and the latest Tory manifesto which propelled Mr Johnson to an 80-seat majority at the election last month.

The Prime Minister's official spokesman said: “Cabinet held a discussion on the economy and upcoming fiscal events. The Prime Minister said the Budget will focus on delivering the priorities set out in the manifesto.

“This is a new government with a new mandate, including to level up across the country, invest in infrastructure and tackle climate change.

“The Prime Minister said there is a massive opportunity to unleash potential to every corner of the United Kingdom.

“The Chancellor and the Prime Minister said the Budget is also the time to take tough decisions in order to prepare the economy for the next decade.

“They said ministers need to root out any waste, particularly anything that is not aligned with the government's priorities, and demonstrate value for money of every pound of taxpayers' money that we spend.”

The PM's order means ministers and officials now face the prospect of having to conduct huge, and speedy, pieces of work so that they can justify how they are spending each and every pound they are provided with.

The findings of each department will be presented to Mr Javid and the Treasury for further analysis.

Number 10 stressed the review is purely about making sure time and money is being used effectively rather than it being a drive to save cash.  

The Tories believe that they must take long-term policy decisions now in order to guarantee future economic and political success.

A source said: “In Cabinet Boris Johnson told ministers they should be prepared to ‘slaughter' projects previously seen as 'holy cows' if they do not align with the Government's priorities.

“He said that some officials will be like 'tigers defending their cubs' and resist change.

“There are hundreds of legacy projects that have been rumbling along around Whitehall and this is a chance to look at them and some will be axed.

“There will be squeals of protest but every project must be worked through.”

Mr Johnson's administration is expected to borrow money to fund big infrastructure projects.

But with day-to-day government spending relatively tight – and with manifesto pledges not to increase taxes – there is a desire to make sure every penny available is spent as well as possible.

I don't doubt folk are now awaiting news of Operation Grange this coming March 2020, to be or not to be - continued!

Unless something unforeseen happens in the next few weeks, I anticipate a melodramatic half-hearted dissolution of Operation Grange.  A sort of clouded end of operations but left open pending fresh/new evidence, you know - routine policing without the transparency of the formal archiving process.

In reality it happened in October (that month again) 2015, when they scaled back staffing from 39 and a bit to 3 and a bit.  That little revelation moment said it all.

So, is Operation Grange a legitimate force assigned to review and/or re-investigate the disappearance of Madeleine McCann or, was it established for some other reason - a nefarious reason?

There is not much evidence to suggest any commitment by the UK authorities to solve this case, just to prolong the agony year upon year at great cost to the public purse.

Never forgetting that Portugal were and still are and always will be the leading force.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/opinion/2020/03/13/dame-cressida-dick-must-clean-met-resign/

Operation Midland was a disgrace: the Met sank millions of pounds into investigating the preposterous allegations of sexual abuse by a serial liar, Carl Beech, described by one officer as “credible and true”. One person who was briefly in charge of Midland was Dame Cressida Dick, who is now head of the entire Met.
Dame Cressida was handed an opportunity to make amends with the Henriques Report of 2016, which made a series of recommendations designed to prevent another disaster. But a new report by HM Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) suggests that a cabal of senior officers, including Dame Cressida, were slow to act and more interested in protecting the force’s reputation than acknowledging and learning from the Henriques findings....

Will the 4 detectives on Operation Grange ( the on going investigation ) now be expected to work from home ? 

It'll save on the coffee and biscuits , plus they can buy their own loo rolls and hand sanitizer ( that's if they can find any on the empty supermarket shelves !) 

Sorry officers no trip to Portugal this year to go " investigating the abduction " . The " latest suspect " wearing a mask whilst loitering around the Ocean Club will have to wait !

It seems Operation Grange has been self-isolating since March this year. Time to flush them out of the broom cupboard again..

UPDATE: Following Operation Grange Appeal


News • Jun 04, 2020 17:47 BST

Met Police (Operation Grange) - Bollocks or not bollocks? - Page 15 Scree680



DCI Mark Cranwell, from Operation Grange said :

“Following our appeal for information yesterday, I want to thank those members of the public who have contacted us. As of 16:00hrs today, Thursday 4 June 2020 we have received over 270 calls and emails into the Incident Room.

“We are pleased with the information coming in, and it will be assessed and prioritised.

“We continue to urge anyone with information to come forward and speak with us.”

To re-cap :

Detectives leading enquiries into the 2007 disappearance of Madeleine McCann have made a new public appeal for information.


It is now 13 years since Madeleine was reported missing during a family holiday in Portugal and the team of officers leading the Met’s investigation, known as Operation Grange, made a public appeal on Wednesday, 3 June, linked to a significant new line of enquiry.

Met detectives working with German authorities have identified a man currently imprisoned in Germany as a suspect in Madeleine’s disappearance.

This man is white and in 2007 is believed to have had short blond hair, possibly fair. He was about 6ft in height with a slim build. He is 43-years-old, but in 2007 may have looked between 25 to early 30s.

We have established that he lived on and off in the Algarve between 1995 and 2007. He is connected to the area of Praia da Luz and surrounding regions, and spent some short spells in Germany.

This individual, who we will not identify, is currently in prison in Germany for an unrelated matter.

The Operation Grange team is revealing details of two vehicles which the suspect is known to have had access to and used around the time of Madeleine’s disappearance.

The first vehicle is a distinctive VW T3 Westfalia campervan. It is an early 1980s model, with two tone markings, a white upper body and a yellow skirting. It had a Portuguese registration plate.

The suspect had access to this van from at least April 2007 until sometime after May 2007. It was used in and around the area of Praia da Luz.

We believe he was living in this van for days, possibly weeks, and may have been using it on 3 May 2007.

We are appealing for anyone who may have seen it in or around Praia da Luz on 3 May, the night Madeleine went missing, the days before, or weeks following the disappearance.

The second vehicle is a 1993 British Jaguar, model XJR 6, with a German number plate and registered in Germany.

This car is believed to have been in the Praia da Luz and surrounding areas in 2006 and 2007. The car was originally registered in the suspect’s name. On 4 May 2007, the day after Madeleine’s disappearance, the car was re-registered to someone else in Germany.

To re-register the car in Germany you don’t have to have the car in the country or region. We believe the car was still in Portugal and would like information if you saw it.

The Met is asking if anyone saw these cars together or individually during the spring and summer of 2007. Both of these vehicles are now held by the German authorities.

Detectives are also appealing for information about two mobile phone numbers, one of which is believed to have been used by the suspect on the day of Madeleine’s disappearance.

The first number is +351 912 730 680. Extensive enquiries have led investigators to believe the suspect was using this number and received a call, starting at 7.32pm and finishing at 8.02pm on 3 May 2007. This call was received in the area of Praia da Luz.

The second mobile number is +351 916 510 683. This number is the phone number that made this call. We know the person was not in the area of Praia da Luz.

Investigators believe the person who made this call is a highly significant witness and are appealing for them to get in touch.

The Operation Grange team is also asking anyone if they recognise these numbers. Did you ever call them? Do you have them in your phone, an old phone or your electronic contacts?

At 7.15pm UK time on Wednesday, 3 June, the Bundeskriminalamt (BKA) will also broadcast an appeal on German channel ZDF.

There is a £20,000 Met reward for information leading to the conviction of the person or persons responsible for the disappearance of Madeleine McCann

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Cranwell, who leads Operation Grange, said:

“It’s more than 13 years since Madeleine went missing and none of us can imagine what it must be like for her family, not knowing what happened or where she is.

“Following the ten- year anniversary, the Met received information about a German man who was known to have been in and around Praia da Luz. We have been working with colleagues in Germany and Portugal and this man is a suspect in Madeleine’s disappearance.

“The Met conducted a number of enquiries and in November 2017 engaged with the BKA who agreed to work with the Met.

“Since then a huge amount of work has taken place by both the Met, the BKA and the Polícia Judiciária.

“While this male is a suspect we retain an open mind as to his involvement and this remains a missing person inquiry.

“Our job as detectives is to follow the evidence, maintain an open mind and establish what happened on that day in May 2007.

“Please contact us without delay so we can get answers for Madeleine’s family.”

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Stuart Cundy said:

“Madeleine’s disappearance has attracted huge international interest. We are appealing for the public to help us establish what happened.

“We are committed to do everything we can to establish what happened and to find Madeleine.”

Speaking in support of yesterday’s appeal, Kate and Gerry McCann said:

“We welcome the appeal yesterday regarding the disappearance of our daughter, Madeleine.

“We would like to thank the police forces involved for their continued efforts in the search for Madeleine.

“All we have ever wanted is to find her, uncover the truth and bring those responsible to justice. We will never give up hope of finding Madeleine alive but whatever the outcome may be, we need to know, as we need to find peace.

“We will be making no further comment regarding the appeal.

“We would like to thank the general public for their ongoing support and encourage anyone who has information directly related to the appeal, to contact the police. Thank you.”

When reckoning the total cost of UK interference in the case of missing Madeleine McCann, Leicestershire Police shouldn't be forgotten - or lumped with the global figure that stagnates at around a cool £11m..

Met Police (Operation Grange) - Bollocks or not bollocks? - Page 15 Scree735

This latest farce from Germany will almost certainly justify (in government speak) the prolongation of Operation Grange for yet another year.

Without any disagreement to your title! Maybe they are now trying to solve this BEFORE the Oct deadline to save money they no longer have?

BTW 

Development of the German Federal Criminal Police Office ‘Check the Web’ project, which was originally launched to monitor the Internet, into a referral unit for unpleasant content
Minor Interpellation tabled by Bundestag Member Andrej Hunko and others and The Left parliamentary group.

Bundestag Printed Paper 

Preliminary remarks of the questioners:

The Europol ‘Check the Web’ project (Council document 8457/3/07) initiated by the German Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) in 2007 stores comprehensive information on persons, objects and activities. Under ‘Check the Web’, Internet searches are carried out and suspicious postings are stored. Information is compiled on Islamist terrorism-related websites and announcements. Just two years later ‘Check the Web’ was transformed into a work file for analysis purposes. Meanwhile, it has become a comprehensive database with graphic front end to which all participating authorities are connected. Information is inserted by Europol and also by the participating states and enhanced with evaluations that other police authorities can then inspect and compare. Alongside Member State criminal police offices, Switzerland and Australia also take part as ‘associated third countries’.
‘Check the Web’ is now to be developed into an ‘EU Internet Referral Unit’ (www.statewatch.org/news/2015/mar/eu-council-cosi-terrorism-riga¬statement-followUp-6606- 15.pdf). Accordingly, in future the unit will operate as the competent referral unit for monitoring the Internet and storing unpleasant content. By the end of May 2015 all Member States must name the police units that wish to work with the new Europol unit. In the case of Germany, this is likely to be a BKA department. As regards Internet crime, however, the Bavarian Land Criminal Police Office is also extremely active at European level. The new Europol unit to monitor and report unpleasant Internet content is then due to start running on 1 July 2015.

Europol is also to cooperate more closely with Internet providers.
