That is the reason I stay away from doctors. By the time they find out what's wrong with you, you are addicted to drugs. I cant believe she actually put their inadequacy in print.

Friday 4th May 2007

After an hour or so, Gerry, Matt and Jane were taken off for questioning. I remember constantly looking at the clock, counting the hours since we’d last seen Madeleine, my terror mounting with every five minutes that passed. My body, as well as my mind, appeared to have locked down. Bill and Angela went out for food and water for us but I had no interest in eating.

Gerry told us afterwards that when he’d asked about deploying helicopters and heat-detecting equipment in the search, the police officer interviewing him had replied, ‘This is not the UK.’ There were no helicopters and no infra-red cameras, he was told. Gerry was also insisting that they speak to Jes Wilkins, in case he had seen the man and child reported by Jane. In fact, we found out later, an officer with a translator – Robert Murat, the man who had interpreted for me that morning – visited Jes and his partner, Bridget O’Donnell, in their apartment some time the same afternoon.

Kate McCann's autobiographical novel goes into great detail about the group's encounter with Robert Murat in the first 48 hours after Madeleine McCann's disappearance was reported, I won't reproduce it here for that reason alone.

In short, there was a concerted effort to implicate Robert Murat in Madeleine's disappearance, not so much the McCanns themselves, they never commit when there is willing spokesperson on call, but from their 'friends', in particular the infamous quartet - Jane Tanner, Russell O'Brien, David Payne and Fiona Payne.

If guilt is overpowering I quite understand the need to find a quick fix but in this instance - why Robert Murat?

Ocean Club staff, guests and lurking strangers were all milling about nillywilly - why not one of them?  Why create a lie to implicate a stranger, the one who had been assisting with interview interpretations, a prominent figure during those first few days?

There is little doubt in my mind that Robert Murat's interference in those early hours/days was by design rather than chance but the reason is unclear.  On the surface it could easily be concluded that he was a covert employee of the abduction scam - a facilitator to gain confidential information on behalf of the alleged victims - the McCanns.  That's how it appears to me but how exactly does that fit in with the deliberate attempt by team McCann to implicate Robert Murat in those early hours/days - only to backtrack and distance themselves soon after?  

Why, a diversion of course!

For the record, I don't believe Robert Murat was working for MI5 or any other branch of the UK establishment.  The diplomatic corps were swiftly deployed to control the investigation, flying in the face of international diplomatic protocol - do they normally work closely with MI5 in the case of a missing child on holiday with the family?  Not to my knowledge!

Still, I digress....

I can only summise that they (Gerry Kate Russell etc)thought this through and for Robert Murat help would purposely finger him for the abduction knowing full well that this would inevitably end up in the papers for which he could sue for a substantial sum as his compensation for helping them-easy money.

...a little byzantine perhaps, but look at the number of "Roll-Backs" (where someone is falsely accused, pilloried by the press, then exonerated and paid out massive lump sums from the press / damages courts) that have been ushered in since?  Pop Singers, Murder Suspects, how many times has this happened?  Then you add in the phone hacking scandal...not as far fetched as it might seem.

I believe Clarence Mitchell was most certainly instrumental in facilitating the out of court settlements for the McCann duo, particularly Sky News, in itself a staunch McCann champion.

Robert Murat's initial involvement, or should I say interference, with the PJ investigation I think goes a lot deeper than a money making scam - that came later when the opportunity arose.

So much is said about the McCanns mercenary actions in this respect, the fear of speaking out lest you are sued - this is of course nonsense, even the McCanns can't sue without good reason.  The dreaded litigious McCann threat is but forum myth - not to say they are not watching so caution is the key word, never present anything as fact without evidence to sustain the claim.

All the while, Robert Murat is following by example for his share of the gravy train bounty.   Was/is he litigious?  Nah, just an opportunist out to make a quick buck.

Robert Murat, along side Jane Tanner's phantom abductor, feature prominently in Kate McCann's novel covering the first hours/days following the 'missing' alert on the night of Thursday 3rd May 2007.

Kate McCann should be nominated for an Ivor Novello award.

We’d never lied about anything – not to the police, not to the media, not to anyone else. But now we found ourselves in one of those tricky situations where we just didn’t seem to have a choice.

Dealing with Madeleine’s disappearance has been almost all-consuming, leaving us little time or strength to address these further crimes against our family.

The appalling loss of our daughter has been too much to bear.

Everything else, however huge, has had to take second place. There is only so much pain human beings can stand at once.

It doesn’t mean the injustices hurt any less. On the whole Gerry and I have managed to dig deep and remain focused, although the temptation to shout the truth from the rooftops has always been there.

There have been many times when I have struggled to keep myself together and to understand how such injustices have been allowed to go unchallenged over and over again. I have had to keep saying to myself; I know the truth, we know the truth and God knows the truth. And one day, the truth will out.

And then some..

Yet publishing the truth is fraught with risks for our family.

It lays us open to more criticism, for a start. We have discovered that there are those in society who will always criticize.

It doesn’t matter who you are, what you do or why you are doing it. We don’t know what motivates these people (although I have a few theories). In the early months, I found such censure incredibly upsetting and sometimes overwhelming.

Our beloved daughter had been stolen from us, we were suffering terribly and I could not begin to comprehend why anyone would want to add to that pain.

As time went on, I was able to shoulder it a little better, either by trying to understand why people did it (unfair as it was) or by simply trying to ignore it.

These detractors didn’t care about Madeleine, so why torture myself by even listening to them? We’ve met many wise people along the way who have stressed the importance of not being derailed by those with their own agenda. It has proved to be good advice.

Missing

Dave [Payne] asked whether we should get the media involved to increase awareness and recruit more help. The reply was swift and unambiguous. ‘No media! No media!’

If she gave in to " the temptation to shout the truth from the rooftops " I'm sure she'd feel much better ! 

It's not healthy to hang onto emotions , both mentally and physically and in Kate it shows . 

Guilt or fear , or a combination of the two ? 

Time to speak Kate , there are plenty who will listen , it will set you free .

If the book was to Tell the truth, It failed miserably. If it was to try to get folk onside , it failed miserably. If it  was to get sympathy, ie money to pay their lawyers & mortgage, it was a success. The one thing that book did do, was to intensify the  search for the truth.

My reason for writing it is simple: to give an account of the truth …

The idea of a monster like this touching my daughter, stroking her, defiling her perfect little body, just killed me, over and over again. It didn’t make any difference that this might not be the explanation for Madeleine’s abduction (and, please God, it isn’t); the fact that it was a possibility was enough to prevent me from shutting it out of my mind. Tortured as I was by these nauseating images, it’s probably not surprising that even the thought of sex repulsed me.

I would lie in bed, hating the person who had done this to us; the person who had taken away our little girl and terrified her; the person who had caused these additional problems for me and the man I loved. I hated him. I wanted to kill him. I wanted to inflict the maximum pain possible on him for heaping all this misery on my family. I was angry and bitter and I wanted it all to go away. I wanted my old life back.
