Who let the cat out the bag?  Shame it's not a blue bag - that would complete the ensemble.

Cuddle cat must have a tale or two to tell, if only it could talk.  Then again, dogs can't speak humanoid but they sure can get the message across !!!

 Pathetic exploitation when she knew full well the press were about. As if it wasn't possible to fit it in and zip it up.

howdy

A prop for the media - forever present for the camera but conspicuous by it's absence on less guarded occasions.

Poor old cuddlecat, used and abused just like Madeleine. 

Cuddlecat who, according to a source, never left Kate McCann's side because she could still smell her daughter on it. 

Cuddlecat who, according to Kate McCann herself, she washed because it was dirty and reeked of suntan lotion.

What a bleeping farce!

Pink cardigan, pink belt, pink cat and photo of  maddie with pink lettering - looks more like going to a photoshoot if you ask me.

Well, Missing People Choir were on last night's programme.  Contrary to the atatement made in the news article that "The Missing People Choir is made up of individuals and families of people who have vanished", there were only 5 members of the choir who were related to missing persons.  The rest were said to be 'supporters and staff of Missing Peope'.

IMO the choir are nothing special - very little harmony etc.  If they get to the final then it truly is a fix!

Of course it was emotional to see the pictures and names of loved ones who have been missing for years and the cameras made the most of Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, Anthony McPartland and a member of the audience who were visibly emtional.

I think the sentiments behind the appearance of the choir are laudible.  It's just a pity that it was hi-jacked by the McCann supporters.

You can see the full interview and performance here.

Exploitative showmanship - what's it got to do with Britain's got talent?

The judges are insincere, if they're genuinely touched by the suffering of others then they should get off their bums and do something about it - by that I mean do something practical, not attach your name to a charity just for show.  They're in a better position both financially and influentially to make a difference - why don't they do that rather than sitting in a studio glamourised in best bib and tucker for Saturday night television, feigning concern for effect.

What's with the nation?  Why do so many people allow themselves to be sucked into a state of mass hysteria by a few z-listed television personalitiies?  Don't people even bother to think for themselves anymore.  Britain is lacking talent - it's turning into a nation of zombies.

There are thousands of people out there who every day of their lives give body and soul to helping others, forgotten people who invariably take the blame when something goes belly-up.  The police the paramedics the ambulance service the doctors and nurses and all others in the care profession etc. - they take the flak in this blame culture.  Why not give them positive recognition rather than hundreds of conceited self-serving undeserving non-entities?

I'm glad the McCann's didn't feature. A sad and emotive "act" but if one were judging technically, its rather average. Tuning, breathing and timing issues at times, little use of light and shade in phrasing and diction less than clear quite often. Still, they are nervous amateurs so that's understandable and its a brave attempt. Flaws aside, my heartfelt sympathies to those bearing such a burden. They may win. I stopped watching this and X Factor years ago due to wincing at performances which were lauded by the judges.

I watched this last night.  I have every sympathy for families of missing loved ones but I won't be voting for the organisation.  Not just because of it's link to Kate McCann as ambassador, although that is a major misjudgement, but because in my opinion a charity that uses over 90 per cent of it's donations on high salaries is not a charity in my eyes, it's a business.

Here is the latest front page runner on the Missing People website -  I'm not quite sure what happened to the Missing People's day on 25th April. There seems to be no mention of it on the initial page.

MISSING CHILDREN'S DAY was promoted via the MISSING KIDS site (CEOP site)

But you are correct.  There is no mention of 25th April being International Missing Childrens Day anywhere on the Missing People site.
