Later..

In the spring of 2008 – almost a year after Madeleine was last seen – the PJ decided they wanted to conduct a re-enactment in Praia da Luz of the night of 3 May 2007. The participants required were Gerry, me, Fiona, Dave, Jane, Russ, Rachael, Matt, Dianne and Jes Wilkins, to whom Gerry chatted in the street that night just after his last glimpse of Madeleine. They weren’t interested in using actors or stand-ins. So either everyone agreed or the reconstruction wouldn’t go ahead.

Our understanding was that as arguidos, Gerry and I were obliged to attend. The other witnesses received reasonably friendly emails from the PJ, via the British police, inviting them to take part. They were a bit baffled and replied requesting more details about the purpose of this belated re-enactment. It seemed it would not be filmed, or at any rate, not for information-gathering through public broadcast. Our friends had watched, with increasing horror, what had happened to us. If they were suspicious that the PJ might be trying to use them to somehow strengthen a flimsy case against us, or even to implicate one of them, it would be understandable. There were worries, too, about the likelihood of a media furore blowing up around the whole thing, especially as the proposed dates had already been leaked to the newspapers.

The biggest concern, though, for all the witnesses approached, was how a reenactment of the kind the PJ were proposing could actually help to find Madeleine. This question remained unanswered.

British consul Bill Henderson and Ambassador John Buck were visiting us on a fairly regular basis and we were seeing the Leicestershire FLOs every day. The flow of information, however, was slow and limited.

The Portuguese police were divulging very little to the British police and vetoing many of their suggestions – bringing out specialist dogs, for example, or staging a reconstruction.

What was forthcoming, particularly in terms of the quality and depth of the investigation, would become increasingly concerning to us. Grounds for elimination, for instance, often seemed very flimsy. I remember Gerry and me exchanging quizzical looks after the FLOs tried to explain how one couple had been ruled out of the inquiry. When we asked them if they were comfortable with this decision, there was an awkward pause before they replied, ‘No, not really.’

So, in 2007 the McCanns were disgruntled because the PJ weren't pulling their weight, they were secretive and refused to follow the advice of deploying trained dogs and conducting a reconstruction.

Well, when the specialist dogs were deployed only a few weeks later, the McCanns drastically changed their tune,  trained dogs were unreliable - ask Sandra!

The reconstruction the MCanns thought was essential to advance the investigation, they drastically changed their tune one year later when the prospect of a reconstruction became a reality.  

How could either the dogs or a reconstruction assist the search for Madeleine - the fictitious search financed by good honest people who sent their hard earned cash, with all good faith, to a limited company with no accountability other than a moral responsibility?

Simple answer - they couldn't!

What could have helped the investigation into the disappearance of little Madeleine McCann was authoritative acknowledgement of the dogs evidence and participation by the key players in an official reconstruction, as requested by the PJ.

Please don't treat us like a lot of fools.

Madeleine who?

Get over to Portugal and answer the 48 questions.   I am astonished that the Met haven't enquired as to why they weren't answered? dontgetit

More astonishing still is the very fact that the Met Police have seemingly accepted, without question, the McCann groups witness statements taken in May 2007 - and then the ridiculously planned rogatory interviews in April the following year.

They were said to be 'coordinating and reviewing' all the evidence collated by Portuguese and UK police and the private dicks employed by team McCann. Didn't it occur to them that something was very amiss with the conflicting witness statements and the extraordinary conduct of the hired detectives?

According to former DCI Andy Redwood, they were taking everything back to the beginning - no stone unturned 'n all that. Why didn't they do just that? If Operation Grange was to be a bona-fide review/re-investigation force, why were they so selective?

Talking of books .... I'm astonished to discover (haven't checked it out for a very long time) that madeleine by KATE MCCANN is still up for grabs over on Amazon. All those torn genitals and 'effing tossers, by rights it should have been removed from the shelves in May 2011.

 More astonishing still is this review less than a month ago..

I think Mr Paterson must have been in hibernation over the last twelve years, along with the enigmatic Mr Totman.  Either that or it's a source close to the family.

Take heart good people, you can still be the proud owner of a hardcover 'collectible' from (?) £14.50 or a second-hand edition for 24p - if you don't mind getting your hands dirty!

So Mr. Paterson -we have all taken a chance  with our children?.  Well count me out of that because I never have.  What does that even mean?
Twaddle.
 
He will continue to be vigilant for Maddie?

Well good luck with that because thousands of others have been vigilant and nothing has come of it (including police investigations involving 2 countries).  NOTHING - so good luck with your vigilance.

This might go by way of explanation..

Why I write fake online reviews

By Matthew Cannon, Francesca Gillett & Patrick Evans BBC News

17 April 2019

"I've learned never to rely on reviews for anything," says Iain Taylor, from East Sussex.

In his spare time and to supplement his income, the 44-year-old says he writes fake reviews online in exchange for money and free products.

"I have written reviews from numbing creams to eBooks to downloadable independent films," he says.

"I think it's bad - but I think everyone's doing it," says Mr Taylor, describing himself as "cynical".

"Since I started doing it I tell my family and friends not to trust reviews.

"If you are going to buy something you should do more research than look at a couple of five-star reviews on Amazon."

He says writers are paid to buy the product and then leave a review, meaning the review can be verified.

I was struck by how common it is for such crimes to be repeated over and over again by the same people. If Madeleine’s abductor was a sex offender or a child trafficker, for example, the chances are that he would have offended before. I cast my mind back to what the British consul had told me in the police station in Portimão that first day about the reports there had been of intruders getting into bed with children. I needed to know more about this.

I got in touch with the retired British consul for the Algarve. He told me that he used to have regular monthly meetings with British tour operators along the coast in Albufeira, at which crime was invariably one of the topics covered. At one of these meetings in August 2006 he had been informed by the tour operators of the spate of incidents I’d heard about the day after Madeleine was taken, in which an intruder had got into holiday apartments at night, climbed into children’s beds and subjected them to various forms and degrees of molestation. It seemed the attacker would often lock the door to the parents’ bedroom before assaulting the child. In one case, the paedophile had put on some of the father’s aftershave in an attempt to soothe or deceive the child.

It was believed that this offender (or offenders) watched for patterns and routines in a family’s behaviour, established ‘weaknesses’ in the security of their apartment and determined in advance where parents and children slept. Cold shivers ran down my spine as it hit home that this might have applied to us. The British tour operators had been keen for this information to remain confidential (and you don’t have to be a genius to work out why that might be). I pressed the former British consul on what happened afterwards. Had there been an investigation? Had anybody been convicted? He wasn’t sure but thought that an immigrant construction worker had been arrested and released pending trial, which was likely to take place some years down the line. Unbelievable.

For several months we invested some time and even resources in following up reports from some of the thousands of psychics who have contacted us; time and resources that would, with hindsight, have been better used in more orthodox investigative work. Much of the information we received, and still receive, is extremely vague. Describing a white house near a dirt track is not helpful. There are millions of white houses in the world and millions of dirt tracks.

A few years down the line, my experience has turned me from open-minded ingénue into confirmed sceptic. Sometimes a very resentful sceptic. Well, they can’t all be right, can they? Madeleine can’t be in a thousand different locations. Even after Gerry and I decided enough was enough, family and friends have felt obliged to pursue information that has found its way to them, occasionally travelling overseas at their own expense, just in case.

Just in case. This is at the core of what I find most upsetting about the visions of the psychics et al. In our desperation to find Madeleine we are extremely vulnerable, and in our position it is very difficult to ignore any information. Even though Gerry and I are scientists by inclination and profession, we still get reeled in. In some letters, a shifting of responsibility, laced with emotional blackmail, comes into play. ‘Well, it’s up to you now,’ psychics might write. ‘I’ve done my bit,’ thus discharging what they feel is their duty to Madeleine. Some have gone a step further and added, ‘I suppose it depends how much you want to find your daughter.’
