I bet there isn't a word for the look on our faces very time he pops up.

nah

WHY has he 'been back' to PDL 20 'times'?

He's also 'wrong' about there 'not being a word' for 'the look on their faces' when he's 'there'!

The 'word' starts with a 'C', and ends with a 'T', and almost 'rhymes' with his OWN 'surname'!

Well, that's NINETEEN more 'times' than the parents, whose child went 'missing' from PDL, have!

Be fair, the McCanns have been there a couple of times for court hearings when they thought they were going to be awarded a million quid.

NOT to PDL, I believe.

All their 'hearings' were in Lisbon.

They were 'asked' by SF, I believe, if they were going to PDL, whilst they were 'in' Portugal, for 'hearings', I do believe they 'declined' to go. Even when one of the 'hearings' was 'postponed', and we had KM's 'meltdown' about having to 'find babysitters' for the twins, back in the UK.

'Way too busy'! (with lawyers 'meetings')

istbc, of course.

MADDIE CONSPIRACY COP
Who is Goncalo Amaral? Ex-Madeleine McCann cop who claims Gerry and Kate killed her and ‘MI5 hid her body’

Controversial cop claims British spooks and former Prime Minister Gordon Brown were involved in cover up
By Hannah Crouch
2nd May 2017, 3:30 pm
Updated: 2nd May 2017, 3:37 pm

Madeleine McCann’s parents lost their third court appeal to silence ex-cop Goncalo Amaral, who claims “they covered up their daughter’s death and MI5 helped hide her body”.
Portugal’s highest court dismissed Gerry and Kate’s bid to overturn the decision to uphold Goncalo Amaral’s right to publish a tell-all book.
----------------------------------------
There's a 'libel' claim, right there, for GA.

He has NEVER 'claimed' G&KM 'killed her' (Madeleine)



Rupe will be 'pleased' with 'Hannah Crouch' won't he?

Perhaps Brunt will take this opportunity tonight to explain to the British public exactly what he was doing making phone calls to Robert Murat about fixing him up with a lawyer that would meet specific criteria. And whilst he's on the subject, he might explain the contract that Murat was anxious not to break.

These phone calls form part of the PJ's investigation after all. And I expect the investigators were as surprised as the rest of us to find Brunt was doing a little more than reporting the facts in a missing child case and was acting in a partisan way to help an arguido in the police inquiry.

There are some interesting comments on Brunt's Twitter today.

One from an ex police officer and the other from a person who claims he knows one of the original Met detectives who was on the case.

Neither believes the McCann version of events.

According to a Twitter tweet, "the McCanns are trending"
I know it is the 10th anniversary of Madeleine McCann's disappearance but it still feels as if something is about to break.

GGG, I am no expert on Twitter. In fact I am as green as grass, but when my daughter tells me that something is "trending", I have to ask her what it means.She says   that if something trending on Twitter, it is the most discussed topic. That is the full extend of my knowledge in regards to Twitter titter

Oh Martin, we're a bit brighter than you give us credit for...

Post by worriedmum on Tue May 02, 2017 3:21 pm

quote 'But what do I really know? What do I know about the only thing that matters, what happened to three-year-old Madeleine after her parents left her and her two-year-old twin siblings Sean and Amelie sleeping in their rented holiday apartment in Praia da Luz on a breezy, late Spring night 10 years ago on Wednesday?

The answer, of course, is nothing. There are theories galore and wild speculation, but for all the time and money spent by police, journalists and armchair detectives, nobody has unearthed the slightest proof to explain her fate. For crime reporters, as an unsolved case it stands alone.' unquote


Martin, are you feeling quite well? Have you forgotten what you said on national tv?

I'll try to screengrab them instead.

Brunt was on Sky News today & his reporting was very measured.

The abduction word was not used & was replaced by 'vanished into thin air' & which was one of several possible theories.

He said he understood the reason why some people don't like the McCanns "because they left 3 young children alone".

He'd never have said this even a few days ago.

"Vanished into thin air"  eh!

Well I never! This is actually a thing?

Martin **unt will be explaining levitation next, or how to throw a pack of cards at a window, and how the one with the signature sticks to the inside, or how you get an iPhone into a Coke bottle.

And my point is. NOBODY vanishes into thin air. She's somewhere. He's replacing the un-provable with the impossible.

An article on Sky states the McCanns are regularly abused online. Here's Gamble's opinion on what sounds like made-up stories:

Jim Gamble, former head of the UK's Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre, said: "One day we will find out what happened to Madeleine and, when we do, I hope those people who had said and done things that were cruel and unkind and unnecessary in the absence of evidence reflect on the part they'll have played in leaving a legacy of bile on the internet."
----------
Unbelievable cant from Brunt's sidekick in the cruel hounding to death of Brenda Leyland. The guy is in total denial over his own cruelty.

Yes we all know that nobody vanishes into thin air but it's still a phrase used when a person goes missing without a trace.

Forget 'vanished into thin air'' if you take such great exception to the phrase.

The important bit is that Brunt, when live on Sky News earlier today, seems to be distancing himself from his 'abduction is the only possible theory' stance & had admitted that there is a valid reason why people don't like the McCanns as opposed to his former stance of calling all non-McCann supporters trolls.

I've just watched the Sky documentary from last night with my husband. He doesn't follow the case as much as I do, but he's pretty well informed with my regular updates.

Anyway, one of the first things that my husband said, about 20 mins in...have the McCann's p!ssed off Rupert Murdoch, he said that he has never seen anything like this from Sky or Brunt. He thought it was a balanced doc, with things being mentioned that haven't really mentioned elsewhere. He also mentioned Colin Sutton, and was surprised that he was allowed to say what he did re McCann's should have been investigated. My husband couldn't believe when MB said that the McCann's threatened to sue Leicester police for lack of information on the investigation. 


One of the things that surprised me was Gamble also mentioned the McCs should have been investigated. Not sure if he has said this before, but it was news to me.

All in all I found it a good, fairly balanced documentary, and I think it would give unsuspecting viewers something to think about.
