Karen Matthews has branded Kate McCann 'a dreadful mother' for leaving daughter Madeleine alone on the night she vanished, her best friend has revealed.
Matthews, who faked the kidnap of nine-year-old daughter Shannon, said: 'I've been judged and I'm paying for it but Maddie's mother was bad too.
'At least my daughter was never left alone!'
In a bizarre rant against Maddie's parents Kate and Gerry, Matthews told friend Julie Bushby: 'Don't get me onto the McCanns, we've all got something to say about them.

'We're too lower class for them but we can still have an opinion. There seems to be one rule for them and another for us but she was a dreadful mum.
'She left one, two, three babies alone while she was out eating and drinking with her mates. My Shannon was kept away from her family but she was never left alone.'
Ironically, Matthews, 41 – now freed from jail – has ditched her first name and is known as Kate. The moniker is thought to have been inspired by one of her Hollywood idols and not by Maddie's mother.
Matthews' attack on Kate and husband Gerry is revealed for the first time as the couple have been criticised twice in three days on social media and national radio.
And her onslaught on the McCanns comes ahead of tonight's Channel 5 documentary which looks at whether the investigation into the plot to kidnap Shannon should be re-opened.
Julie claims friend Matthews is 'too stupid' to have invented the Shannon kidnap alone without colluding with others.

Wealthy parents, former GP Kate and heart doctor Gerry, both 48, of Rothley, Leicestershire, had already won the nation's hearts and public funding when three-year-old Maddie was snatched from a Portuguese holiday apartment in May 2007.
At the time they had left her and younger toddler twins siblings Sean and Amelie alone while dining in a nearby tapas bar with friends.
Schoolgirl Shannon vanished from her mother's home in Dewsbury, Yorks in February 2008.
She was discovered 24 days later following a £3.2million police search two miles away at the home of Michael Donovan, uncle of Matthews' boyfriend Craig Meehan having been drugged, tethered and hidden inside a divan bed.
Matthews, who had seven children with five fathers, and Donovan were sentenced to eight years over the kidnap plot.
The pair had allegedly been inspired by Maddie's disappearance and invented the kidnap plot to claim a reward for 'finding' her.
Matthews' best friend and former neighbour Julie, who has kept diaries of her prison visits, told MailOnline: 'Karen talked about Maddie and her family, the difference and unfairness of their social situations.
'She's never understood why British and Portuguese police haven't taken it any further and asks in her simple almost child-like state if it's because 'they're rich and posh and she's poor and common'. '
Mother-of-three Julie, who led the painstaking search for Shannon and still supports her friend said: 'I want to sit her down and ask 'Why?' She's not got the highest IQ and I wonder if she was coerced into doing something she didn't want to do.

'If someone said to her, 'Look, I'm skint, I need some money, help me', I think she was that daft she would have done anything.
'Karen was guilty and put her hands up but she wasn't the brains behind the plot to kidnap her daughter.
'I'm not excusing her in any way but I and the rest of the neighbourhood want to know the real reason for what happened. We want answers.
'I've kept a diary and have a record of all the times I visited her in jail but that one question remains unanswered.'
Matthews was thrown into the public glare earlier this month after controversial BBC1's The Moorside re-enacted the staged snatch. Campaigning shop assistant Julie was played by star Sheridan Smith.
But the hugely popular show came under attack, including from the Maddie's parents. And Matthews, now living at a secret location in the south of England, claims she has been bombarded with death threats.
She served just four years of her sentence, walking free in April 2012.
The McCanns, who are facing the agonising 10th anniversary of Maddie's disappearance in May, have been bombarded with social media and national radio rants in the past week

Host Katie Hopkins claimed on her Sunday show on LBC Radio that their daughter would never be discovered. She said: 'Maddie was lost because she was left to be found.'
Just three days earlier on Friday glamour model Jodie Marsh posted in a Twitter rant that Maddie's parents should be searching for their daughter 'on their hands and knees digging up the bare earth' rather than be side-tracked and busying themselves suing people.'
Matthews criticised the McCanns, who were having tapas with friends close to their holiday apartment in Praia da Luz on the night Maddie disappeared. She and twins Sean and Amelie had been left asleep at 8.30pm in the ground-floor apartment, while Kate and Gerry dined in a restaurant 180ft away. The parents checked on the children throughout the evening, until Madeleine's mother discovered she was missing at 10pm.
A source close to the couple said: 'If it wasn't such a serious matter of a missing child it would almost be laughable. Two very minor celebrities and a person jailed for a crime against her own daughter dare to comment about a case they know nothing about.
'Kate and Gerry won't be saying anything to fuel this whirlwind of nonsense. They don't want to give these peoples' egos even more exposure.'
Today Britain's top police officer Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe will stand down having failed to fulfil his pledge to find Maddie to 'end her parents' torture'.
As the Scotland Yard chief steps down his force is still no closer to knowing what happened her despite vowing he was 'confident of resolving' the world's biggest missing child mystery.

Operation Grange, the inquiry launched in May 2011 to the spiralling £13million cost to the taxpayer, has failed to unearth any significant new clues.
A Met Police spokesperson said: 'We are cracking on.' But she refused to divulge if a final 'last throw of the dice' lead which Sir Bernard said would be investigated last summer has produced a shred of evidence.
The high-profile case is now being wound down. The Home Office has not allocated any extra cash after next month. A spokesperson said: 'Funding will continue until the end of this financial year. The resources required will be reviewed again at this point.'

'Inevitable'?

Oh, well, a couple of things are right, in the article:

Matthews said to friend Julie Bushby: 'At least my daughter was never left alone'

Ouch!

'We're too lower class for them but we can still have an opinion. There seems to be one rule for them and another for us but she was a dreadful mum."
'She left one, two, three babies alone while she was out eating and drinking with her mates. My Shannon was kept away from her family, but she was never left alone.'

'DOUBLE'.. OUCH!

"At the time they had left her and younger toddler twins siblings Sean and Amelie alone while dining in a nearby tapas bar with friends."

"......the McCanns, who were having tapas with friends close to their holiday apartment in Praia da Luz on the night Maddie disappeared. She and twins Sean and Amelie had been left asleep at 8.30pm in the ground-floor apartment, while Kate and Gerry dined in a restaurant 180ft away."

'Our Trace' ramming home, the McS THREE children, ALL under the age of four years old, HAD been 'DILIBERATELY, CONSCIOUSLY, WILLINGLY and KNOWINGLY, LEFT ALONE, OUT OF SIGHT' of their parents? (for 'at least' 34 minutes!)

Why would Karen Matthews adopt a new name of Kate, which she relates to being a "dreadful Mother"! I find that bizarre. 




Nothing so queer as folk as my Granny used to say.

Karen Matthews is right though. 
She kept her child safe & then faked a kidnapping for money. 
However, Karen Matthews had no money. 

Mccann's abandoned their child & then faked a kidnapping for money.
However, the Mccann's were rich, 

When the Mccann's go to court, Karen Matthews will certainly be higher up morally.

Does anyone else find this article by TK  offer a slight change in the "wind" ?

She and twins Sean and Amelie had been left asleep at 8.30pm in the ground-floor apartment, while Kate and Gerry dined in a restaurant 180ft away. 




Not quite like dining in ya back garden  now is it ?

I hope I see the headline in tomorrow's daily papers... "The parents of Madeleine McCann to sue Karen Matthews over libellous comments..."

Where will it all end now that it has begun?

'Kate and Gerry won't be saying anything to fuel this whirlwind of nonsense. They don't want to give these peoples' egos even more exposure.'
---------------------------------

So, the 'source' says 'people'.......... "dare to comment about a case they know nothing about."

I'm 'thinking', WHAT does the 'source' actually KNOW 'about the case' that 'people know nothing about'?

The 'style' of the 'writing' from the 'source' (judging from her/their 'videos' and 'interviews') is that the 'source', imo, is.............Gerry's sister......Maddie's...AUNTTYYYYYY Phil! (or 'sister' Trisha)

And she's "Back in the ROOOOMMM!"

Looking at the comments, to say there's been a sea change is a monumental understatement.

I fancy an expensive "super inaudible" has lapsed. Frightfully expensive those things, especially when you're suddenly potless.

I find the whole Karen Matthews expose and drama production utterly unsavoury.

Karen Matthews committed a crime, went to court, was found guilty by a jury, did her time and is now released.

For me that should be an end to things.

Shannon Matthews was adopted, is now an adult and I can't imagine the pain of current news that faces her.

Now three pages of comments - allegedly moderated. Almost all anti-

Interesting comment on the site, that perhaps a super injunction has "expired' . . . or been challenged - ? by the Mail ?



There's another documentary on tonight on Channel 5 about Shannon Matthews and life after the fake abduction.

Re Karen Matthews ...... 

Julie Bushby ''Karen was guilty and put her hands up but she wasn't the brains behind the plot to kidnap her daughter. ''  

That's the thing. There weren't any brains behind the plot to kidnap her daughter.


Re Kate and Gerry McCann .......

Now it seems clear doesn't it? The media intend to keep publishing these small articles about the McCanns every day.
presumably until they get some answers.
