Shame on them - flaunting their arrogance without a care in the world.
It is called a fascinator @Verdi. She is isn't she? Fascinating.
Looks a bit daft to me big grin !  Is it usual to wear at a jaunty angle or is that personal affectation?



That's more like it!

Both Verdi, it has to be jaunty and an affectation.

@Doug D wrote:Never did get to the bottom of the 2 o’clock ‘Madeleine Cup EBF Stallions Maiden Stakes’ 
that day and who put up the prize money, but the whole day was sponsored by Stobo Castle so I imagine it was Stephen Winyard.
 
This race has appeared on the calendar since 2013.
 
Stephen Winyard is of course the owner of the Scottish health spa, Stobo Castle and in 2007 offered a reward of £1 million to anyone who could provide information that leads to Madeleine's safe return.
 
He also presented the 'prestigious' Stephen Winyard award made to Dr Kate McCann and Coral Jones at the Missing People’ showcase event in London in March this year
.
Tickets are already on sale for next years ‘Stobo Castle Ladies Day’, so get in quick as the always sell out! Probably not a problem though when you hobnob with the 'gentry'!
Looks as though Stephen Wynyards reward money may not be able to be claimed then,a bit similar to the now defunct NoTW reward,eh?

The McCanns had previously encountered David Steel at their fundraising bash at Kensington Gardens. Steel was one of those who paid £150 for a ticket to attend.

This fundraiser was to mark the 1000th day since Madeleine's abduction disappearance and to put some much needed cash into the limited company's coffers with half of the proceeds going to the McCanns and the remaining half being split between Missing People and an EU equivalent charity. The McCann's fund is not a charity but a limited company, nevertheless there was, how shall I say, something symbiotic.

This is David Steel, the man who failed to have Cyril Smith investigated and was instrumental in getting him a knighthood. Would I want to stand next to him if my child had been 'taken by a paedophile'? It's obviously a rhetorical question.

The Kensington Gardens bash involved an auction. Stobo Castle also did a fundraiser with an auction.

Thanks for the link, Aquila. I have just read the articles and it prompts me to ask what treats are lined up for those people who ,when Madeleine was reported missing late at night ,gave up their time to search('physically search'). As opposed to those who didn't...

I remember the Richard Branson's exclusive Kensington Roof Gardens funtion and what a memorable damp squib occasion that was - a star-studded bash (so sayeth the UK tabloids) that managed to rustle-up such names as Gloria Hunniford,  Fiona Bruce,  Peter Bowles and the WOW factor - none other than  Lord David Steel.  Just look at proud Gerald standing before the camera, again looking like a David Walliams tribute act..



Gerry McCann, Martin Houghton-Brown, Chief Executive Missing People, Kate McCann and Francis Herbert, Secretary General, Missing Children Europe at a Madeleine McCann fundraiser....


I think that was about the extent of the press coverage.  It must have been a total non-event, otherwise it would have been the talking point of the year.

NB:  Lord David Steel also wrote a glowing obituary following the death of his party comrade Jeremy Thorpe - another dubious character that haunted the corridors of Westminster.

big grin  Call the dogs!

When I first saw that photograph, I recall thinking how shabby the area looks - not what one would expect of Richard Branson's renowned opulence.  In the absence of any interior photographs of the function, I even wondered if it was genuinely the exclusive Kensington Roof Gardens.

Take a look at Lord David Steel who proposed Cyril Smith's knighthood, despite being aware of the allegations against him.

David Steel was a member of the party run by Jeremy Thorpe who allegedly tried to organise the murder of a rent boy who was going to tell.

Is it possible/more than likely that David Steel knew about Clement Freud sharing an office with Cyril Smith?

Oh, and I believe there's a topic somewhere on the forum that has discussed Stobo castle allowing parties for swingers.

Is it any wonder why people question the sexual pecadilloes of the rich, the powerful and the establishment who immediately swooped in on the Madeleine case as the very reason for a cover up?

Just my opinion - and thanks to a friend who pointed out this information to me.

Jeremy Thorpe and Norman Scott, was a huge scandal back then, as being gay was illegal.
Hope the link works

It doe's seem as though,"Katebird" will have to have sprouted bigger wings to win in this Company,when at present,the filly is at present unrated, but you never know, the horse has now qualified for Nursery Races, now where is Clement when you need him?
If they had been prosecuted for allegedly leaving their three small defenceless children alone night after night the horse could have been called jailbird.

If Rocky wins again might we see a horse called Angry Bird?

I think the way she is looking these days a horse named Old Bird could be a good name.

I'm no good at celebrity spotting but I can easily recognize Dame Judi Dench and Amanda Holden.  Seems losing a child opened door for the McCanns - some might say 'a good marketing ploy'.

McCanns apt & hire car


Blood and cadaver alerts

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.
