Never confuse the two crusader - there is a world of difference.

The Consulate is the dogs body, the people liaison link. The Ambassador is the bigwig who only gets personally involved if there is a major incident - like a natural disaster, the outbreak of war, an act of terrorism, an outbreak of a deadly virus.

Food for thought smilie !

In spite of the big changes in our home and working environments, we had soon made friends, two of the closest being Fiona Webster and her partner David Payne.

I had first met Fiona in December 2000 in the staff coffee room at the Leicester General Intensive Care Unit, where we were both anaesthetic registrars. It was the day after I passed my anaesthetics fellowship, so I’d been in an upbeat mood.

It didn’t take me long to discover that she was my kind of person. We became such great mates that one of our consultant colleagues rather cheekily used to refer to us as Charlie’s Angels.

....................

Does anyone else think it odd that David and Fiona Payne kept a low profile, separated themselves from the daily activities of the rest of the group, in particular the McCanns - their longtime buddies?

Does anyone else think it odd that Diane Webster, the mother, kept a low profile and yet condoned the night childcare arrangements by joining the rest of the group for the their nightly nosh-up at the Tapas restaurant?  A grandmother willingly going along with leaving very young children alone every night in a strange environment?  Why would she be dining with a group who are so into each other, a group generations apart, when little children are left alone on that particular night?  

Nah, I don't buy it.  This secretive group are hiding some very dirty secret. A pact indeed, nothing can be said without first passing through good old stalwart Gerald?

Pull the other one!

Could it be that the children were not alone?  Could it be that little Madeleine was nowhere to be seen or heard?  Could it be that the particular night was staged in preparation for the cry of abduction?

The teller's tale tells all - what they want you to believe.  The rest is up to you - to believe or not to believe .... that is the question!   The PJ didn't believe it, they had their doubts on 4th May 2007 - I didn't believe it, I had my doubts when first I heard the news.

I consider Professor the confessor McCann to be the archetypal leader of the pack.  If you don't believe me just watch his performance on every occasion but this..

Diane Webster went along for one reason only and that was to look
after the children until the s*** hit the fan and then they all colluded
to stop the s*** falling on them and destroying their careers.

Three days before I went into hospital, Gerry’s Uncle Pat and Aunt Alexis came up from Essex to see us – and within an hour of their arrival, Uncle Pat, an ex-professional footballer, collapsed with a heart attack.

~~~~~~

It was an ex-colleague of Gerry’s in Glasgow who had suggested the Beckham appeal. Gerry’s ex-boss, who was the Scotland football team doctor, spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson on our behalf, Sir Alex got in touch with David Beckham, and he instantly agreed to do it. We are so grateful to him: he said his piece with such feeling that it couldn’t fail to touch people. Sir Alex Ferguson was also behind the appeal made by Cristiano Ronaldo, the world-famous Portuguese footballer who played for him at Manchester United. There followed more spontaneous messages from other players, including Chelsea’s John Terry, Ricardo Carvalho and the Ukrainian Andriy Shevchenko, who made his appeal in several languages.

On Wednesday 12 September, Gerry was contacted by Edward Smethurst, a commercial lawyer. He represented a businessman called Brian Kennedy (not to be confused with my uncle Brian Kennedy), a successful entrepreneur who owned various companies, including Everest Windows and Sale Sharks Rugby Club. Brian, he told Gerry, had, like many people, been following the unfolding drama of Madeleine’s disappearance since 3 May. Now, seeing things going from bad to worse, he had decided he could no longer stand idly by and watch. He wanted to step in and help us financially and in any other way he could. A meeting with Edward and Brian was arranged for that Friday at the Kingsley Napley offices in London.

On Friday morning, Angus McBride kindly drove to Rothley to pick us up and take us down to London. Brian Kennedy and Edward Smethurst joined us in a meeting room shortly before midday. Brian was much younger than I was expecting, very relaxed and personable. He told us a little about himself. Originally from Edinburgh and married with five children, he was wealthy, obviously, but a self-made man: he had started out as a window cleaner. Then he asked me to give him an account of what had happened on the evening of 3 May. I talked for a couple of minutes before he stopped me. ‘OK, that’s enough. I’ve always believed you. I just wanted to hear it from you. That’s fine.’

We discussed the immediate problems facing us: our arguido status, the need for legal assistance, the media coverage and the public-relations difficulties associated with that. Brian’s contributions were full of passion and sincerity and what he said next will stay with me for ever. ‘OK. First of all we need to deal with all this stuff and get it out of the way. Then we need to concentrate on the most important thing: finding your daughter.’ I wanted to cry. Well, actually, I did cry. Here was somebody, at long last, who could see through all this rubbish and the damage it was doing. Here was somebody who wasn’t turning his back on us because it was the easiest or ‘safest’ thing to do. And most importantly, here was somebody who was able and willing to help us find Madeleine. We had a chance. Madeleine had a chance. I resisted the urge to run around the table and throw my arms around him. Instead I stammered out my gratitude. ‘Thank you, Brian, thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you. Thank you.’ My heart was doing mini leaps for the first time in months.

Discussions between ourselves, Brian and Ed, our lawyers and representatives from Control Risks continued through the afternoon. We left feeling weary but upbeat, and as we said our farewells, Brian got his hug.

Everyone had agreed that it would be a great help to have Clarence Mitchell back on board to take care of media liaison, communications and public relations. We knew he was keen to rejoin us in spite of the government’s edict. Within three days, Clarence had resigned from the Civil Service and was back in the fold, his salary generously taken care of by Brian. Being Clarence, he rolled up his sleeves and got started immediately. We were absolutely delighted – as, incidentally, were the many little old ladies who wrote to tell us that they were sleeping much better since the return of that nice ‘Mr Mitchell’.

Saturday, 12 May 2007. Madeleine’s fourth birthday. Until it was upon us, we hadn’t been able to think about it: we simply couldn’t countenance the idea that by the time it arrived she wouldn’t be back with us to mark it. Not being with her today, loving her, pleasing her, enjoying her delight, was unbearable. We should have been at home, where we’d arranged a joint party in Leicester for Madeleine and two of her classmates at nursery, her best friend Sofia, who had been born on the same day, and a little boy called Sam whose birthday was within a few days of theirs.

They had been going to have their first disco. I’d bought a couple of girl-band CDs a few weeks earlier and we’d been having singalongs in the car to warm up for it. The memory of Madeleine, sitting in the back seat, singing her heart out along with the Pussycat Dolls still makes me laugh. And cry.

They live in Rothley.  May we assume the nursery is also in Rothley, as is the Primary school.
The class mates at nursery are therefore also from the Rothley area.
Why then organise (!) a joint party – for three 4 yr olds ? – in Leicester.  6 miles away

and singing along . . .?
to this ?
I'm telling you loosen up my buttons, baby (uh huh)
But you keep fronting (uh)
Saying what you going to do to me (uh huh)
But I ain't seen nothing (uh)

Or possible she might have been singing this !
How many times?
How many lies?
How long you been sneaking?
How long you been creeping around?
How many lies?
How many times?
Were you here deceiving
While I was here believing in you


I've gone and thrown out all the records
All the ones that ever reminded me of you
I've gone and tore up all the pictures
'Cause there was not one shred of truth
I opened up my eyes
Oh       Yeah



And never forget we are talking about a THREE YEAR OLD.

Madeleine loved Harry Potter. I remember her going out into the hall one afternoon at our house in Queniborough and knocking on the living-room door. ‘Hello! Come in!’ I called. In she came, smiling but looking anxious and preoccupied. She tilted her head towards her shoulder and whispered, ‘Mummy, Harry Potter’s next to me.’

Especially when he is the most important man in your life. I remember finding him on the couch one day, with Sean and Amelie sitting on either side of him, watching TV. When he looked up at me there were tears rolling down his face. I glanced at the screen to see what they were watching. It was Doctor Who: Madeleine and Gerry’s favourite episode.

madeleine by KATE MCCANN
....................

I strongly suspect the reference to Pussycat Dolls is up there with tales of Harry Potter and Doctor Who, for maximum effect!  Otherwise Madeleine McCann was about ten years ahead of her time.

Harry Potter yeh - JK Rowling was much needed for a while.  
Doctor Who?  Well, who knows - maybe a doctor thing.  
SingalongaPussycat Doll - needed to show that special bond she had with her daughter.

'She asked if she could wear my engagement ring, which she often liked to do. I took it off and she put it on her middle finger for a few minutes.

This book should be rated a 'Penny Dreadful' and published by Mills and Boon.

"Mummy , Harry Potter's next to me " ! 

If this was allegedly before they moved to Rothley then Madeleine wasn't yet 3 years old 

We all think our children are amazing , but poor little Madeleine is portrayed as some sort of wonder child , presumably a Mensa candidate as well . 


How much do we really know about the real Madeleine Beth McCann ? 

Very little , the Harry Potter , fan , watcher of Dr Who ( David Tennant I believe at the time ) with daddy , singing along to the Pussycat Dolls with mummy . Mummy's " little buddy" 
The budding doctor with her First aid set and stethoscope when a heart attack happened at home !?!! 
From the rest of the family , " she was a screamer , could throw a tantrum " and Aunty Janets " loving description " of her ! 

All made up to encourage the donations to the Fund to continue , after all " she's lovely " said her mother . 
Poor Madeleine ,  let down by so many .

think my earliest telly memories were around age 4-5, Monkey Magic, Penelop Pitstop, Battle of the Planets, Kung Fu, and The High Chaparral.  Was put to bed before Dallas as that was considered unsuitable.  Could hear the music from upstairs in bed, always wanted to watch it but was never allowed!!!  Recall finally getting to watch it age around 8? and thinking it was so sophisticated.  All a very long way from the Pussycat Dolls.

HiDeHo4 - 6 Jul 2015


There is no mention of the Amsterdam press conference in the book but the one in Berlin the day before is described as "infamous":

"The fuss began when Sabine Mueller from German radio asked us, ‘How do you feel about the fact that more and more people seem to be pointing the finger at you, saying that the way you behave is not the way people would normally behave when their child is abducted, and they seem to imply that you might have something to do with it?’ In spite of the gasps and restless shuffling around the room, at first I failed to pick up on her last eight words: I was still concentrating on the first part of her question, which related to criticism there had been of our participation in the European campaign to find our daughter..


[...]


I responded by saying I thought these critics were in a very small minority. It was only after Gerry stated firmly, ‘There is absolutely no way Kate and I are involved in this abduction,’ that the second part of her question caught up with me. ‘I have never heard before that anyone considers us suspects in this,’ he went on. ‘And the Portuguese police certainly don’t.’


Honest to God, I almost want to pat my lovely husband and myself sympathetically on the head or put an arm round us both when I recall how trusting we were back then. To think we could have made comments like this, in all confidence and conviction. The fact that we could and did highlights why we were so totally dumbfounded when the tide turned against us two months later. We knew we were innocent, and we believed the PJ knew that, too. And despite everything that happened, we still believe that."

The Pussycat Dolls always look as though they are making a porn film. Kate McCann thinks their 'songs' are suitable for a three year old girl to sing along to. Somebody put make-up on that three year old face. Kate McCann's bewk contained her vision of Madeliene's defiled body. It seems that the odds were stacked against Madeleine having a long, or happy, life, from early on.

FOREWORD

The decision to publish this book has been very difficult, and taken with heavy hearts. Before making up our minds to tell our story, my husband Gerry and I have had to give very careful consideration to a number of issues, not least its impact on the lives of our three children.

My reason for writing it is simple: to give an account of the truth. It has always been my intention to set down a complete record of what happened to our family, for our children, Madeleine, Sean and Amelie, so that, when they are ready, the facts will be there for them to read. I wanted to make sure they would always have access to a written chronicle of what really happened, no matter how many years have passed. They have already been through too much, and there will be further challenges ahead. Understanding our ordeal will give them the best chance of dealing with whatever life throws at them.

These are the same parents who, with PR guidance, an online shop, top notch lawyers and media attention galore, chose to allow their fight against Goncalo Amaral and reveal in a Portuguese court their son had overheard a radio broadcast whilst on a school bus - a radio broadcast that has to my knowledge never been offered to the general public.

These parents have chosen to allow their children's school to be placed in the media. The media have been very respectful towards Madeleine's siblings and yet her parents have involved the school she might have attended; the very school her siblings attend. This school, a school which Madeleine did not attend now has Madeleine in its being. This is not the only school affected. Bake sales, fundraising and all sorts have been a part of Madeleine's sibling's lives and the lives of those children who attend these schools.

Just an observation.

Okay, so the McCanns, Kate McCann in particular, want to sell tell their version of the truth to their children, to the world through the medium of a book. So you want the world to think paedophile - so be it..

It led to a conversation between the three of us about paedophiles.

We faced our biggest fear: that Madeleine had been taken by a paedophile and killed.

This initial discussion, though, was unsettling, focused as it was on the typical profile of a paedophile. All I could think was, not Madeleine. Please, not Madeleine!

They told us, for example, about a newspaper clipping they’d seized from his house, an article entitled ‘Lock up Your Daughters’, which claimed that Casanova had been a paedophile. It made us shudder.

The thought of Madeleine’s fear and pain tears me apart. The thought of paedophiles makes me want to rip my skin off.

I don’t mind if it’s in nice surroundings but certainly, in the case of paedophiles, away at all times from ANY contact with children.

Had I ever considered that she may be dead? Yes, of course. Early on that was all I thought, all the time: that some paedophile had grabbed her, abused her and later killed her. Then I’d begun to wonder if she was being held by pornographers, I told them, or had been taken for someone who wanted a child.

The second stemmed from the revulsion stirred up by my fear that Madeleine had suffered the worst fate we could imagine: falling into the hands of a paedophile. When she was first stolen, paedophiles were all we could think about, and it made us sick, ate away at us.

In one case, the paedophile had put on some of the father’s aftershave in an attempt to soothe or deceive the child.

Gradually, my outlook was growing more positive and I was beginning to get past my early certainty that Madeleine must have been taken by a paedophile and murdered.

Night after night, I read of depraved individuals, British paedophiles, Portuguese paedophiles, Spanish, Dutch and German paedophiles, and of the horrific crimes they’d committed.

On 22 May I had a phone call from our lead investigator. He warned me that a British tabloid would be running a piece the following day about a convicted paedophile called Raymond Hewlett, who had been staying in Tavira on the Algarve in May 2007. The proximity of Tavira to Praia da Luz and the fact that this man was a paedophile ticked all the boxes for the redtop papers, and they jumped on the story.

It led to a conversation between the three of us about paedophiles.

We faced our biggest fear: that Madeleine had been taken by a paedophile and killed.

This initial discussion, though, was unsettling, focused as it was on the typical profile of a paedophile. All I could think was, not Madeleine. Please, not Madeleine!

They told us, for example, about a newspaper clipping they’d seized from his house, an article entitled ‘Lock up Your Daughters’, which claimed that Casanova had been a paedophile. It made us shudder.

The thought of Madeleine’s fear and pain tears me apart. The thought of paedophiles makes me want to rip my skin off.

I don’t mind if it’s in nice surroundings but certainly, in the case of paedophiles, away at all times from ANY contact with children.

Had I ever considered that she may be dead? Yes, of course. Early on that was all I thought, all the time: that some paedophile had grabbed her, abused her and later killed her. Then I’d begun to wonder if she was being held by pornographers, I told them, or had been taken for someone who wanted a child.

The second stemmed from the revulsion stirred up by my fear that Madeleine had suffered the worst fate we could imagine: falling into the hands of a paedophile. When she was first stolen, paedophiles were all we could think about, and it made us sick, ate away at us.

In one case, the paedophile had put on some of the father’s aftershave in an attempt to soothe or deceive the child.

Gradually, my outlook was growing more positive and I was beginning to get past my early certainty that Madeleine must have been taken by a paedophile and murdered.

Night after night, I read of depraved individuals, British paedophiles, Portuguese paedophiles, Spanish, Dutch and German paedophiles, and of the horrific crimes they’d committed.

On 22 May I had a phone call from our lead investigator. He warned me that a British tabloid would be running a piece the following day about a convicted paedophile called Raymond Hewlett, who had been staying in Tavira on the Algarve in May 2007. The proximity of Tavira to Praia da Luz and the fact that this man was a paedophile ticked all the boxes for the redtop papers, and they jumped on the story.

We were exasperated. We now knew that there had been hundreds of paedophiles on the Algarve at that time

If you can pick a word that stands out in the above excerpts it's 'unsettling'.

Kate McCann's diary

Clarence spoke to us about a possible trip to the Vatican. It seems that it really is going to happen—main story on the news!
28 May 2007

I felt somewhat concerned. This is going to be a little too much, I only want Madeleine back and to return to our normal life.
30 May 2007

Pope Benedict XVI arrived in his "pope mobile" waving to everyone. It immediately became clear that he recognised us. He took hold of our hands and he was so gentle, so sincere.

I thanked him for having allowed us to be there with him. He said he would pray for us and that he would continue to pray for Madeleine and for her safe return. I gave him the photo of Madeleine—he blessed it (with the thumb)—something that we would be able to keep for ever. A shy man but very friendly.

Very emotional, very positive, very important—charming.

Please, God, bring back to us little Madeleine. We love her so much and we miss her so much. Please Lord, help us to be united once again shortly as a family.

Later on, Clarence told me that, before that (meeting the Pope), a butterfly had flown above and had landed on the bow on my hair.

Following on, it left, but it came back and landed on my lapel. An omen, we hope.

Don't flatter yourself ducky!

😊 That phenomenal egotism hasn't diminished once. Add being as hard as nails, being a liar, and having no conscience and you have an inhuman creature. I wonder if she hangs upside down at night.
