Gerry's long-term agenda:

“We want a big event to raise awareness that she is still missing. It wouldn’t be a one-year anniversary, it will be sooner than that”
-----
"I have no doubt we will be able to sustain a high profile for Madeleines disappearance in the long term."
-----

"On Tuesday evening, we took part in the Rothley & Soar Valley Lions 10K road race here in the village. Twenty of us (family and friends) wore our Madeleine t-shirts and that together with cheers of encouragement from spectators, made it all worthwhile. It was a really enjoyable evening and a fantastically well-supported event.

We’re already talking about next years run! Hopefully we wont be needing to wear our t-shirts for that one."

Gerry McCann and the long-term agenda

'On the flight to Berlin, Gerry wearily admitted the couple's campaign to find Madeleine could last years.

They refuse to leave Praia da Luz while their precious daughter is still missing.

Asked how long they might stay there, he said: "Well, our kids don't start school for three years.'

Matt Baggott: When stepping down in Leicestershire he admitted that one of his big regrets was the continued failure to locate Madeleine McCann, the young girl who disappeared in Portugal in May 2007.


Maybe Mr Baggott also regrets these?

1) Sent a family liasion officer to PDL
2) Brought in numerous other Forces to assist
3) Provided a Police escort from the Airport to Rothley for the Prime Suspects
4) Assisted in collecting a pillow from Rothley & Delivered it to the FSS
5) Assisted in getting M Harrison to Portugal & then ignored his report
6) Provided a Link from the Leics Police website to the Prime Suspects Find Madeleine website
7) Travelled to Portugal to prevent 'certain information' from reaching the Public
8 ) Witheld for 6 months witness statements incriminating one of the T7
9) Communicated with the T9 in a highly casual, friendly & wholly unprofessional manner
10) Went to the High Court & allowed TM to get their hands on 141 (or thereabouts) pieces of information

11) Continued to support the Private Company of the prime suspects by advertising a link to the web-site
12) Advised the T9 that they saw no value in them returning to PDL for the reconstruction
13 ) Allowed the tapas group to read their previous statements, and each other's depositions, allowed the tapas to change and edit the answers, led the answers, boycotted the recordings of the said statements
14) Leaked documents to journalists and to the McCann Team.

I doubt he wonders, or regrets, why the Police have failed to locate three-year-old Madeleine McCann.

Job done. For some reason...

Edward Smethurst: "We are currently demanding €1.2 million in damages, but we are reserving the right to increase this value as soon as we can ascertain what profits have been generated from the sale of this book.”

How did that work out for you Mr Smethurst? And have you paid Mr Amaral yet after you lost?

Greedy b*st*rds didn't sue Mr Amaral as soon as the book was released, but waited a year until it had sold many copies. That's how distraught the McParents were.

Friday 4th May 2007

I was taken into a large room containing several desks. Gerry had asked João Carlos if he could be allowed to stay with me while I was questioned because he was extremely worried about my psychological state. I was grateful to João Carlos for agreeing, with the proviso that Gerry remained seated behind me. I appreciate now that this would not be acceptable practice in most police investigations.

Every now and then Gerry would put a hand on my shoulder or give me a reassuring squeeze.

Martin Samuel, Daily Mail:

At our insistence, Stuart [Prior of Leicestershire Constabulary] contacts the FSS and asks them if they think the Portuguese are idiots. We hear him saying:

“With a lot less than that, we would have already arrested someone in England.”

So Call me Stu,recognised the importance of the FSS result,then?
Then had to wait for the ultimate written deliberation of the "Forensic test" after three Months inconclusive,with the rest of the material now"Contaminated",I bet it was contaminated,perhaps on purpose,another one for the "Lunatic Conspiracy asylum" quickly before it spreads or leaks out to the press?

It may sound odd, but in some ways we were glad the investigation had been closed.

As I’ve said, we were far from convinced that there was any real investigation taking place anyway, so to have it officially brought to an end didn’t feel like as big a loss as might have been expected.

While the PJ had continued to supply the usual response – ‘The official investigation continues.  All credible lines of inquiry will be pursued’ – we had been receiving messages from concerned people who had tried to pass on information to the police, only to be told, ‘The child is dead.’

Now that this ‘investigation’ had concluded, reports could be channelled directly to our own team, which would give them, we hoped, more to go on.  It was certainly better than nothing.

Hi Verdi,So Kate,Gerry never actually challenged the Official "concerned People" or contacted Portugal PJ that they had been informed about the,"Child is Dead" to be explained?
Would these concerned people be Clarence Mitchell,circumlocution officer?

After examining the proximity of the Tapas restaurant to apartment 5A, the barrister first of all assured us that our behaviour could not be deemed negligent and was indeed ‘well within the bounds of reasonable parenting’.

"Gerry and I talked about taking legal action against Gonçalo Amaral but we had concerns about the time and effort this would involve. We did not want to be diverted from our own investigation just as we had put the restrictions of the case behind us and we feared that any resolution through the Portuguese courts would take too long. For the moment we hoped the fuss would die down and Amaral would let up."

"Uncle Brian had also flown in for a visit.  By 2 August, however, those sirens were wailing so loudly I cannot understand how I missed them. And yet I did.

That morning Gerry and I, along with Jon and a colleague, were preparing to drive to Huelva in Spain to put up posters of Madeleine. Jon was intending to do some filming and several of the British journalists were going to join us there, on the give-and-take principle: it would give them a story centred on Madeleine, rather than on us, and this in turn would publicize our efforts. As I was dropping Sean and Amelie off at Toddler Club, I had a phone call from Gerry. The police wanted to come over at 10am. Something to do with forensics, they’d said. Great timing. And forensics? What was that all about?"

Curious, Gerald omits to mention the most important event of the day - the inopportune visit by Eddie and Keela to chez McCann. His wife however makes quite an issue of it in her autobiographical chiclit.

"As we were walking up from the beach at about 5pm, I had a call from Cherie Blair, in her final days as wife of the prime minister (her husband Tony would announce his resignation two days later and leave office the following month). She was kind and helpful. She told me it was amazing but encouraging that Madeleine was still the first topic on the news every night.

This was only five days after the abduction: as it turned out, our poor daughter would continue to headline the bulletins for some time to come. Cherie also warned me, ‘Whatever happens, your life will never be the same again.’

She mentioned that a friend of hers, Catherine Meyer, was the founder of PACT – Parents and Abducted Children Together – and said she would get in touch with her on my behalf. Doubtless I asked Cherie if there was anything the British government could offer the Portuguese in the way of resources to assist or expedite the search for Madeleine. It wasn’t my intention to make her feel uncomfortable by asking this, and I’m sure I didn’t. We were just so desperate I couldn’t let the opportunity go by."

Clarence Mitchell:   "An outcome similar to Holly and Jessica is possible. I don't want to, and I can't, talk about Robert Murat but some journalists who worked with me in Soham, and that were now in Portugal, saw resemblances between that case and Robert Murat. And I won't say more."

https://jillhavern.forumotion.net/t15508-dr-julian-boon-a-killer-without-a-concience#bottom

Lori Campbell:   It was just very reminiscent of the Soham murders was my first instinct. There was a local guy. He was hanging around the scene an awful lot. He was asking us questions about what was going on in the investigation, maybe trying to find out what we knew and he just seemed to be giving an air that he was authoritative and he was working in an official capacity for the police. And I was just very suspicious about that, that they would take on board a man who was just a local guy. They have many people, I am sure, who speak Portuguese and English. Why would they ask him to, you know, go into the apartment, speak to the family and have that sort of contact with them?

Earth to Professor McCann - as a medic you will know nightmares are the creation of the subconscious in a sleep state, you don't get to pick and choose. Don't evade the point.

"For the first time I noticed the ugly purple, blue and black bruises on the sides of my hands, wrists and forearms. I was shocked. Gerry reminded me of how I’d been banging my clenched fists on the veranda railing and the apartment walls the night before. I could only vaguely remember it."

If you are referring to Robert Murat - wrong!

He claims to have been used by the Norfolk police as a translator/interpreter as and when required.  It seems there was a large contingent of Portuguese working for the Bernard Matthews turkey farm, he says when anyone was in difficulty with the police they would call him.  It was never his job, I doubt he is even an accredited translator/interpreter - just someone bi-lingual nearby who could speak Portuguese/English.

There is nothing to indicate he has ever worked for the local Praia da Luz police force.  Ostensibly, he walked in off the street and offered his services - Gonçalo Amaral had no idea who he was, he even got his team to keep an eye on him as he too was suspicious - and he's a cop!  

I have to say, I also find this very strange if not suspicious.
