THE new police investigation into Madeleine McCann’s disappearance was described as a “ludicrous” waste of cash at the weekend by one of Scotland Yard’s governing body.
Jenny Jones hit out at David Cameron’s decision to involve the Metropolitan Police and said the move would deny justice to other victims of crime while tying up police resources. A member of the Metropolitan Police Authority, Ms Jones has vowed to do everything in her power to stop the inquiry. Her comments echo disquiet expressed by fellow MPA member, Labour peer Toby Harris, who accused the Prime Minister of undermining the operational independence of the police.

Ms Jones said the McCanns were being given preferential treatment. “The police should not take this case up in this way,” she said. “It is ludicrous. This could take years and will cost millions. It is very unusual for police to step in like this and it is not an appropriate use of police resources.” Ms Jones, who is also a member of the London Assembly, said: “The Government is closing down the Forensic Science Service because there are not enough funds. This is a crucial part of police work.

“Although it is tragic and I feel for the McCanns, how can the Prime Minister justify spending millions of pounds on one case?” Writing in his internet blog, Lord Harris said: “I can imagine that the senior leadership of the Metropolitan Police are not exactly happy about this.” But the PM’s intervention has been welcomed by Mr and Mrs McCann. They said Mr Cameron had given assurances that all funds for the inquiry would come from the Government and would not eat into the police force’s budget.

Madeleine vanished from her family’s holiday flat in Praia da Luz in Portugal’s Algarve on May 3, 2007, just before her fourth birthday. Portuguese police, helped by officers from Leicestershire police – where the family live – carried out a massive investigation but the inquiry was shelved in July, 2008. Since then, no police force has been actively looking for her. Kate McCann has just launched her book about the disappearance. The new review will be led by Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood, from the Homicide and Serious Crime Command.

Why don't the McCann donate everything they have to the police fund? Weren't they gonna sell houses etc?

"And if Madeleine had hurt herself inside the apartment, why would that be our fault?"  Gerry

Blood and cadaver alerts
dismissed by UK Government

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
