Through all the peaks and troughs, good news bad news in between news, Clarence Mitchell has remained a staunch believer in the McCanns and their 'total' innocence and has stuck rigidly to their side controlling what gets printed in the press.

Clarence Mitchell, through his varied career, has contacts (not necessarily friends) across the broad spectrum of public relations the media the government and an assortment of other diverse entities.  The McCanns journey has not always runs smoothly, they have been harshly criticised by the UK media and of course the good old British public but never mind, Clarence Mitchell has always been by their side to help them along their path to righteousness.

In more recent times as exposure has become greater and greater, the McCanns are not looking too angelic angel , indeed their halos have dropped to point strangulation - still they are free to walk the streets with heads held high with their guardian angel, Clarence Mitchell right (or maybe left) by their sticky side.

It has become apparent over the years, by the more observant, that the majority (if not all) UK press reports have emanated from the McCann faction - the proverbial source close to the family and/or investigation.  This simple indicative raises serious questions on the reliability of the media as a whole, more importantly, who is monitoring the media and why.

As an aside, when Clarence Mitchell returned to duty as director of the government's Media Monitoring Unit, moves were afoot to monitor online activity, I quote..

'Upon his return he went back to his former role; just last month he was pushing a new initiative at the Media Monitoring Unit looking at an online monitoring product to track public debates from blogs.'

Shortly afterwards, Clarence Mitchell left his employ with the government and took up a full time position working for and representing the McCanns - his salary allegedly paid by the wealthy McCann benefactor, Brian Kennedy.

There was a heck of a lot of activity working behind the scenes between Eddie and Keela's inopportune visit to Praia da Luz and October 2007, when Gonçalo Amaral was removed from the case.

Thought for the day  think .

Hi Verdi,it is without doubt,the missing Madeleine McCann case has been Covered Up,but why is the ultimate unanswered question?
The possible death of a Daughter,Madeleine,Kate,Gerry the Parents,to save who two doctors and their Seven cohorts from being found guilty or innocent in a Court of Law in Portugal,on what charges!
They perhaps have dug themselves into a Bigger Hole,which they cannot extract themselves,in all their cleverness?

When you add in all of the personel,Multiple Police forces,Foreign Office Officials,Top legal Advisers to the Prime Minister of the UK, that have been involved with this case,then add in the Crime Watch  Special,Madeleine McCann October 14 2013,DCI Andy Redwood, Richard Bilton specials is this the last "Throw of the Dice"to preclude their innocence,costing Millions of Pounds!

As it seems more and more people have become aware of the facts of the case,with seemingly No evidence of an Abduction from Apartment 5a Ocean Club dated 3 May 2007,the Families Halos are slipping from their faces. 
there only seems one verse applicable,"You Reap,what You sow"?

Well Mr Mitchell, firstly Madeleine hasn't been seen nor heard of since her arrival at the Ocean Club, Praia da Luz at the end of April 2007, secondly and potentially more important..

Clarence Mitchell spinning for the McCanns (video posted up-thread #42)  - February 2010.

"But under the laws of defamation, as a journalist you will well know, that it if you allege, in effect, someone is responsible for the death of their child and has in effect, covered in up, that is prima facie defamatory of your good name.  They therefore they not only .. but .. not only .. they had to take action on that basis but more importantly their own reputation, or the damage that was doing to their wider family, they thought it was important to stop people from believing this because it would mean the search for Madeleine was hindered .. so this was a clear cut case of defamation regardless of the right (?) response ..

Yes, you have the freedom of speech to say what you want, within the rule of law ...."

Report by Chief Inspector Tavares de Almeida  -  10th September 2007

From everything that was exposed from the AUTOS, we conclude that:

A) The minor Madeleine McCann died in the apartment 5A of the Ocean Club resort, on the night of May 3rd of 2007;

B) It was performed a simulation of kidnapping;

C) In order to avoid the death [alarm] of the minor before 22H00, it was created a situation of the children's surveillance by the McCann while the children slept;

D) Kate McCann and Gerald McCann are involved in the occultation of the cadaver of their child Madeleine McCann;

E) At this moment, there seems that there aren't strong indicia that the death of the minor didn't happen due to a tragic accident;

F) From what was obtained until now, everything points out that the McCann, as self-defence, didn't want to deliver immediately and voluntarily the cadaver, existing a strong possibility that the same was transported from the initial place of deposition. This situation is susceptible to raise questions about the circumstances under which the death of the minor occurred.

So we suggest that the 'Autos' be sent to the EX.mo Sr. Procurador Geral da R'ublica [General Attorney], in order to:

G) New interrogation of the Arguidos Kate and Gerry McCann;

H) Evaluation of the measure of restraint to be applied in this case;

The Truth of the Lie by Gonçalo Amaral - published July 2008

It is now important to present a summary of this case, based on our deductions: reject what is false, throw out what we can't show with sufficient certainty and validate that which can be proven.

1. The theory of abduction was defended from the start by Maddie's parents.

2. In their group, only the McCanns state that they saw the bedroom window open. The others cannot confirm it since they arrived at the apartment after the alert was raised.

3. The only person to have seen that window open with the shutters raised is Amy, one of the play workers from the children's centre of the Ocean Club. She made that observation at around 10.20/1030pm, which means well after the alert - which doesn't exclude that the window could have been closed at the time of the criminal act.

4. The witness statements raise a great number of inaccuracies, inconsistencies and contradictions. Jane Tanner's witness statement in favour of the theory of abduction is probably false: little by little it has lost all credibility because of successive modifications introduced by Jane, modifications that have ended up invalidating it.

5. The body, the existence of which has been confirmed by the EVRD and CSI dogs but also by the results of the preliminary laboratory analyses, cannot be found.

The conclusions my team and I have arrived at are the following:

1. The minor, Madeleine McCann died inside apartment 5A of the Ocean Club in Vila da Luz, on the night of May 3rd 2007;

2. There was simulation of abduction.

3. Kate Healy and Gerald McCann were probably involved in the concealment of their daughter's body.

4. The death may have occurred as a result of a tragic accident;

5. The evidence proves the parents' negligence concerning the care and safety of the children.
----------

Here I must ask - how exactly did the McCanns, coming from the UK, manage to sue a senior Portuguese police officer for repeating the conclusion of an official Portuguese police investigation?  How can the words of Dr Amaral be construed as libel and according to Clarence Mitchell, damaging 'the search' for Madeleine?  A rhetorical question of course.

Dr Amaral's book is but a precis of the investigation.  The PJ files containing this information - and a whole lot more - were made public during the same period as Dr Amaral's book was published so, I ask again, how did the McCanns managed to sue Dr Amaral in the first place?  Still rhetorical..

NB:  As an aside Mr Mitchell - what search?

It’s interesting that Mitchell chooses to use the words “they thought it was important to stop people believing this”


I would have thought that, in talking about libel & defamation, he would have said speaking or writing. Instead, it was clear that the intent was to impregnate into people’s minds, that the McCanns had nothing to do with Madeleine’s alleged abduction and/or death.

I cannot understand how they were able to sue Rocky when he was only repeating the conclusion of the police files.  In the police files there remains Question 49, so why was permission given for the  action to proceed?
Another question which will remain unanswered probably.

----------

Hang on a minute Mr Mitchell, weren't/aren't you employed by the McCanns to act as their media manipulator monitor - how do you explain this?



A nice hefty out of court settlement - eh?

Mr Amaral was doing his job, his book was a prosaic personal account of his brief assignment as case coordinator - in short, it was in accord with the Portuguese police investigation as published in great detail in the public domain back in the summer of 2008.

Did not that, along with the damning UK media reports, damage the 'search'?  Why was Mr Amaral's book, television interviews and his documentary been singled out?  Did not the McCanns own documentary damage the 'search', as it focused on Jane Tanner;s sighting, which according to ex-DCI Andy Redwood, was a mistake?

Why haven't the McCanns sued themselves for perverting the course of justice and harming the 'search'?  Rhetorical question of course!

Clarence 'pretty in pink' Mitchell stands for the conservative party for Brighton and Hove constituency.

Brighton Pier Pavilion [circa. May 2015]


Fully aware of the liberalness of the audience in attendance, Caroline Lucas kept it simple on the night. It was her debate to lose, after all, with opinion polls giving her a 10-point lead over Labour’s Purna Sen. Lucas stuck rigidly to her party line throughout, campaigning for free education, a re-nationalisation of the railways and an end to the ‘creeping privatisation of the NHS,’ amongst other issues. Only occasionally did the audience get a glimpse of the feisty nature that has endeared her to many during her time in the Commons, as she clashed with Conservative candidate Clarence Mitchell over the affordability of the Greens’ public spending plans.

Having noted the popularity of the Green Party amongst the students, both the Labour and Liberal Democrat candidates could be seen to consciously lurch to the left on key issues, leaving Clarence Mitchell isolated and alone on the right in defence of austerity. Though strong on local issues such as reducing parking charges and regenerating the seafront, which were welcomed warmly, the national Conservative dogma of ‘austerity and efficiency’ was continually laughed down by the audience. On multiple occasions throughout the evening, Mitchell was reduced to berating the audience for their rudeness towards him. Not a good night for the Tory, who may find come polling day that shouting at people is not the best way to get them to vote for you.

Clarrie/C.A. fiasco
Forward to about ten mins in to get past beeping.
I do have to wonder why Clarrie has been chosen to cover up for C.A. now?
Watching it a second time, it seems to me that Clarrie is being thrown under the bus, to protect C.A.'s name, which is never going to be trusted again. FaceBook has seen record numbers of ppl leaving, since this scandal broke, and no wonder. Even if you have never had an account your data is more than likely being passed about and sold to advertisers, and many other third parties online. Everything online ends up on the cloud now anyway, just go and look for yourself. This is all the slippery slope towards the Chinese "social credit scoring" - Totalitarianism.1984. A brave new world. China owns Apple now, and Google owns the whole world of online data.
It may not affect me in my lifetime, but they are definitely gearing up for our children's data to be locked into this forever. 
The public do not trust C.A. or Facebook, and never will so why has Clarrie been chosen as their spokesman? He would be the last 'spokesman' I would employ. And is he so desperate now that he doesn't mind being associated with such an invasive and illegal company?

He's perfect for the job.

As head of the MMU his job was "to control what comes out in the media", so maybe it's a natural progression to control what comes out in social media.

Maybe it's always been part of the 'wider agenda'.

Clarence Mitchell wrote:I have never felt the need to ask them that question because we have spoken contantly about this subject, and both tell me that they are innocent. Since I have spent a month with them, I believe in what they tell me. It is enough to see how they deal with the twins, Sean and Amelie. You can see that they are dedicated to their children and that they would never do anything to hurt them. This argument may not prove anything, but for me it is important that I work with honest people.


Well, there's an almighty clanger before you start.

Hi Verdi,The Conservative Party has extremely close links to Cambridge Analytca,it took over five days for a Judge from the UK to gain legal access to a building they were operating from in the UK?
So they had five days start to delete information!?
The Government if not corrupted would have just turned off the supply of power,"Oh One of those "Privatised companies" has just cut through the mains,purely an accident,then the"rodents" would have fled from the nests,just walk in while they were leaving with a writ,like "Can't Pay,We'll take it Away" it works for their teams to walk through an "Open door" so why should Cambridge Analtyca be any different?

Why right on Sky freebie News Channel! I saw him out of the corner of my eye, and then recognised his voice. He decribed himself as 'spokesman' for Cambridge Analytica. Journos and other questioners were asking reasonably about the precise actions of the firm. Where was boss, Mr Nix?... and a lot else. Scornful and domineering, he talked over the punters. (Their mikes seemed feeble and in short supply) Airily he waved his hand and said, 'unfortunately Mr Nix is currently indisposed. He will answer questions later'.

The whole topic of Facebook, HOC Committees, and Camridge Analytica is has security implications... so send for Clarence. There he was, being a bullying Mr Fixit..

Hi comparedna,the One and only Lie machine was on channel four News. 
Where the interviewer Victoria Derbyshire gave Clarence a filibuster blathering idiot moment,that he was just a mendacious spook working for the Government in whatever role they had given him as their chosen PR, for Mr Nix,Cambridge Analytica,Cover Up,with serious links to the Conservative Party! 
Mr Nix now wasn't available to comment on Cambridge Analytica as his Brain was now being altered so as not to spin the wrong message about "Honey traps,revelations of past devious activities" but openly allowed to spin Bullshit if your names Clarence Mitchell,paid shrill for Kate,Gerry for the past Eleven yrs?

Surely there is something wrong in the UK Society and the system of Government,when a mendacious liar can be used to the MSM, Openly spreading false narratives of what Mr Nix had openly stated on camera(Under cover) to forthcoming business partners,that what he had divulged was now not true!? wtf2

It has become known via the channels of investigative resources where they have caught out the methods used by Cambridge Analytica, be it in Poland,Serbia,the next President of America,UK, Brexit via Facebook of stealing information from people without their consumed knowledge by apps applied to the Operating system,Mark Zuckerberb?

Hi @comperedna and Willow - yes, Clarence rolled out the same old MO in defending Camb Analytica/Nix to the hilt, although he did look decidedly uncomfortable at times. It was actually Siobahn Kennedy doing the interview I saw (below) - she did an excellent job at snapping at his heels but he wriggled his way around most of the questions. 


Willow, I have a strong feeling that Victoria Derbyshire is actually in the same gang as Clarence - her interviews during the Grenfell incident were highly suspect, IMO.

McCann's main media man goes into battle for scandal-hit Cambridge Analytica

By Mark Saunokonoko

The PR supremo who became the key spokesman for missing girl Madeleine McCann's parents is now acting as a "hired gun" for controversial UK data firm, Cambridge Analytica.
Cambridge Analytica has been engulfed by scandal since accusations last month that the consultancy had misused personal information from as many as 87 million Facebook accounts.
Clarence Mitchell, a former seasonedBBC news reporter, is the man Cambridge Analytica last week put front and centre to help fight the growing backlash from the government and public.
Mitchell has forged a reputation as a highly-skilled publicist able to operate in cauldron-like conditions, following his hiring by Kate and Gerry McCann in the days after both parents were declared formal suspects in the 2007 disappearance of their daughter.
The McCanns came under unimaginable intense media pressure, particularly in the summer of 2007, in the months after three-year-old Maddie vanished from a holiday resort in Portugal.

Mitchell was viewed by some as using his influence to reverse the tide of what had become an increasingly negative portrayal of the McCanns in UK media.
Last week, in what was Cambridge Analytica's first counter-attack since the scandal broke in March, Mitchell was announced spokesman for the firm and he immediately went on the offensive.

"The company has been portrayed in some quarters as almost some Bond villain," Mitchell said in a press briefing. "Cambridge Analytica is no Bond villain."
Cambridge Analytica didn't use any of the Facebook data in the work it did for Trump's campaign and it never did any work on the Brexit campaign, Mitchell said.
Mitchell later sat down for a 30-minute grilling with the Channel 4 news journalist who had broken much of the story, including highly damaging undercover footage of Cambridge Analytica's chief executive.
During sometimes frank and testy exchanges, C4 journalist Siobhan Kennedy criticised Mitchell as being a "hired gun" and "a stooge".

Kennedy asked Mitchell if it was appropriate that Cambridge Analytica had used him to "do their dirty work" instead of wheeling out executives to answer the hard questions.
Mitchell said Cambridge Analytica was "a good company" that had been subject to a firestorm of speculation, misinformation and misunderstanding.
"It's kind of you to say I'm a stooge, I'm certainly not a stooge," Mitchell responded. "I'm here to represent the company in the media focus given my own professional background."
Before working for the McCanns, Mitchell enjoyed a prized role as head of the UK government's Media Monitoring Unit (MMU).
The MMU, a team of several dozen analysts, was linked to 10 Downing Street. Their role was to the keep the prime minister and government departments aware of important stories in the 24/7 news agenda.
In the decade since Madeleine vanished, Mitchell has been a constant trusted presence at the side of Kate and Gerry.

This week will mark the 11th anniversary since Madeleine disappeared in mysterious circumstances that have never been solved.
Madeleine Beth McCann, who was just days away from her fourth birthday, went missing from apartment 5A of the Ocean Club Resort in an alleged abduction on the night of May 3.
Arguidos status (formal suspect) was lifted from Kate and Gerry when the 14-month Portuguese police investigation was shelved because of a lack of evidence.
The McCanns have always steadfastly denied any involvement in the disappearance of Madeleine.

Mr Mitchell appears to be having some difficulty holding down a job since his full time appointment with Brian Kennedy, working solely for team McCann..

Cambridge Analytica: Facebook data-harvest firm to shut

Cambridge Analytica, the political consultancy at the centre of the Facebook data-sharing scandal, is shutting down.

The firm was accused of improperly obtaining personal information on behalf of political clients.

According to Facebook, data about up to 87 million of its members was harvested by a quiz app and then passed on to the political consultancy.

The social network said its own probe into the matter would continue.

"This doesn't change our commitment and determination to understand exactly what happened and make sure it doesn't happen again," said a spokesman.

"We are continuing with our investigation in cooperation with the relevant authorities."

What are the accusations against Cambridge Analytica?

The company has been accused of using the personal data of millions of Facebook users to sway the outcome of the US 2016 presidential election and the UK Brexit referendum.

In March, Channel 4 aired undercover footage of Cambridge Analytica's CEO, Alexander Nix, giving examples of how the firm could swing elections around the world with underhand tactics such as smear campaigns and honey traps.

The UK-based company, which denies any wrongdoing, has an extensive record of working abroad on many election campaigns, including in Italy, Kenya and Nigeria.

Why does it is say it is shutting?

Clarence Mitchell, a spokesman for Cambridge Analytica, referred the BBC to a statement on the firm's website.

"Over the past several months, Cambridge Analytica has been the subject of numerous unfounded accusations and, despite the company's efforts to correct the record, has been vilified for activities that are not only legal, but also widely accepted as a standard component of online advertising in both the political and commercial arenas," it said.

"Despite Cambridge Analytica's unwavering confidence that its employees have acted ethically and lawfully... the siege of media coverage has driven away virtually all of the company's customers and suppliers.

"As a result, it has been determined that it is no longer viable to continue operating the business."

The statement added that its parent company SCL Elections was also commencing bankruptcy proceedings.

Hi Verdi,it seems as though "Cambridge Analytica" could be the new"Bell-Pottinger" with mysterious connections to the Conservative Party!
You mention African Countries,Kenya,Nigeria,didn't Bell - Pottinger also become embroiled in similar shenanigans in abusing the democratic process just recently?
Now here in the UK the Conservatives are in a right state over Brexit,with Jacob Rees Mogg,Boris Johnson,Michael Gove and their cohorts providing funds to the EGR shenanigans of funds from the Government on the Brexit vote! 
Wasn't Clarence Mitchell a prodigy from Bell-Pottinger mixed up with a claim involving Carter Ruck,Democratic Congress in Africa,Nigeria,Trafigura,were they fleeced the payments to the people who had been poisoned?

Yep!  eyebrows

Wasn't also Kevin Halligan of Oakley International fame, also heavily involved with the shenanigans of Trafigura?
