From WIKI SOURCE

'Chartism never recovered from the tragic fiasco of April 10, 1848. The panic fears that had preceded it were now turned into equally unthinking and more provocative ridicule. The Petition came out badly from the scrutiny of the Commons Committee on Petitions. The gross number of signatures was somewhat less than two millions, and many of these were in the same handwriting. The Committee solemnly drew attention to the fact that among the signatories were " the names of distinguished individuals who cannot be supposed to have concurred in its prayer," such as "Victoria rex, 1st April," Prince Albert, the Duke of Wellington [who was supposed to have signed seventeen times], and Sir Robert Peel. " We also," continued the Committee, "observed another abuse equally derogatory of the just value of petitions, namely the insertion of names which are obviously altogether fictitious." "Mr. Punch," "Flatnose," "Pugnose," and "No Cheese" were examples of this reprehensible tendency. '

In the spirit of the foregoing we wish to add our signatures to this most important People's Petition regarding Madelene McCann.

Yours sincerely,

Gerry and Kate Dunnit (Mr and Mrs)

Leveson Report: victims of press intrusion too 'angry' to attend meeting with Culture Secretary


Victims of press intrusion refused to attend a planned meeting with Maria Miller to discuss the Leveson Report because of anger over David Cameron's stance. JK Rowling says she feels "duped".





Victims of press intrusion refused to attend a planned meeting with the Culture Secretary to discuss the Leveson Report today because they were so “angry” at David Cameron’s dismissal of its key recommendation.


Gerry and Kate McCann, Bob and Sally Dowler and Christopher Jefferies were among those invited to attend the meeting with Maria Miller, but they felt so “let down” by Mr Cameron that they stayed away.

The arrogance of Gerry McCann is breathtaking. They sued the press as they had the financial muscle behind them to do so. They were awarded huge sums as a result of their actions. Gerry's comments suggest that that is not enough and they want the press to be taught a lesson they will never forget. It is clear that is the clear modus operandi of Team McCann to attack those who dare to hold an alternative view to them.

Thanks Karen, I was just about to post it .........

Leveson Inquiry will be 'almost useless' unless David Cameron backs it, Gerry McCann claims



  • Father of missing Madeleine says £4m probe must be accepted by MPs

  • McCanns were 'commodities' with no rights to privacy or dignity' - report

  • 'The only reason we went to Leveson was to affect change,' Gerry said

Father of missing Madeleine...mmm..father of missing Madeleine who has been supported by public donations (the McCanns mortgage payments were paid from the initial benevolent donations were they not?), 'incredibly supportive' media coverage, top PR people, millions of UK taxpayers' money for a review, endorsement from celebs, independent financial support from benevolent 'others'. The family were supported from day one in almost every conceivable way by not only the great general public of UK but from the highest level. I can't think of a single family of a missing child in UK history that has received this unprecedented and almost immediate swoop of support at every level.

The father of missing Madeleine is now baying for legislation to reform the UK press. He seems to me to want individuals to be taken to task. This is the man who sued the press and received handsome payouts. Don't get me wrong, some of the articles were dreadful but as he intimates most of the UK public thankfully didn't believe it. Phew!

Now I'm going to look at things in a different way. The father of Madeleine is a doctor within the NHS. How many doctors do we know of who make dreadful mistakes get struck off? I'm speaking about doctors who are protected and cossetted by the NHS and their PR machine. How many people in the UK have had their lives destroyed (literally) by a rogue doctor and receive short shrift from the powers that be - that's the NHS, the government and the media? It's the media that expose these rogues when all the proper channels are lacking.

The NHS, the government and the media have supported the father of Madeleine. The NHS gave (quite rightly) compassionate leave and then afforded the father of Madeleine time to ease back into work on an initial part-time basis. We saw footage of the father of Madeleine attending a patient to let us know he was back in work mode. The government have lashed out on a review. The media in general have supported the father of Madeleine. In terms of marketing they supported 'the good ploy' in so many ways.

Imagine that Leveson's recommendations were all supported by the UK government and agrrement to allow legislation swished through. I doubt we'd have seen the father of Madeleine standing with a handpicked victim to raise a petition. I think we'd have seen the father of Madeleine standing with the celebs and a different look on his face and a different glint in his eye.

I care what happened to Madeleine. I don't care for the bleeting of the father of Madeleine who is an adult, was an adult when he chose to leave Madeleine and her siblings alone and has been given virtually every consideration and resource the UK has to offer.

This is my opinion on the matter.

For once Cameron got it RIGHT. Once you have a Government laying down laws to curb Press Freedom, it erodes the democracy established thus far. Adopting it would be like going backward and down the slippery road to medieval pre-democracy time.

If Gerry had his way we would all be living under draconian laws and where individual journalist who dares pen a negative word against him punished or imprisoned. When it suits him, he made optimal use of the Press to spin his agenda. With his case shelved, suddenly he desires the Press to switch off like a tap, and is indignant (furious likely) no one pays his demands any attention.

Unlike Chris Jefferies and Dowlers proven as genuine victims of press violation, the missing Madeleine case is still hanging in limbo with a terrible stench surrounding her parents permeating in the air. Of all the people, the mccanns (who miraculously weren't hacked according to their spoken creature) are the only ones reacting violently to Cameron's stance!
Which begs the question: Why? And the answer is simple and glaringly obvious - FEAR.
They live in absolute fear of the eventual exposure of the truth of their lies. Fear propels them to push for adoption of Leveson's proposal hoping to prevent future prints of their dirt swept underneath the carpets so far.

If Redwood should come back to recommend that the focus on mystery of missing Madeleine should be brought back onto her parents, let's see would the Mccanns back such Redwood's report!
Would Gerry say "Redwood's finding is useless unless Cameron backs it" or would he say "X million of pounds of Review costs must be accepted by MPs We know the answer don't we?

First, when he found that his suggestion of punishment for individual journalists was not taken on board, he has a flaming cheek to say that Leveson's Recommendations were inadequate and not up to his expectations.Then, he followed on to criticize Cameron and MPs for rejecting Leveson's proposal. All these reactions are signs of Gerry and Kate self centred narcissistic personality who cannot rationalise wisely for the Good of men and Nation for that matter. The true essence of Press Freedom is lost on Gerry and Kate who cannot see beyond their selfish noses, all because they have something to hide.

On the other hand, despite having been a subject of Press and Media scrutiny all for the wrong reasons, Cameron's stance proves his wisdom and capability to see the broader picture. That said, he has no skeleton in his personal closet ticking like a time-bomb, unlike the lying pair.

No man no matter who he be, or power he has, should be allowed to influence State Policy governing operations of its Press or of its Police Force, or any matter that concerns the Interest of the Masses, for selfish reason as it is the WRONG reason, not in the interest of the Country and its population.

Sky News this morning has the plight of the McCanns, showing the visuals of their plea for the return of Madeleine, the escort to the police station and no mention of the Dowlers that I've noticed. It's all about the Mc's. They do seem to be in favour as always.

Let's not forget that not all of the victims of phone hacking are in favour of legislation to control our press - not that the McCanns' phones were hacked. It's unbelievable how the Mc's attach themselves to this, that and the other as and when it suits.

I don't know why parents who neglected their children in a foreign country have so big a voice in UK. It's remarkable (that's not the word in my head that I'd like to use). After all the assistance they have received it's obvious humility and gratitude aren't qualities they have chosen to develop other than to thank people for their support - that support imo with a financial bent.

I really do wish the father of Madeleine would take off his blinkers and realise that there are some people who don't regard him as important - especially not important enough to make demands on our constitution.

I have to agree the way The McCanns attach themselves at every given opportunity grates. That of all the victims of the Press the McCanns seem to have manipulated it very well for their ends and yet still Gerry has the gall to ask for the Press to be fettered especially at this moment in time.

I found this quote on David Icke's site but it seems to apply to TM and their modus operandi:

"Tell us why the man who 'never told a lie' published a book explaining how to manipulate the media for your own ends - 'Spread false defeat to gain public sympathy; or false accusation and then arrange for it to be exposed as such – so the accuser will forever be treated with suspicion.'"

The McCanns are 'angry'?

Wow, that must be a first!

Have a look at the way the 'Comment' arrows are going below the Mail article.

Cameron's stance of: "We need much tougher self-regulation but not state control of the press" is winning majority support, and the public on the whole don't like powerful, PR-represented celebs trying to dictate how the press should be run.

I am the only one thinking that they lost the moral high ground when they took millions of pounds from the newspapers, And that was just for the reporting by a newspaper. The paper didn't actually cause the loss of their loved ones which is the true cause of their grief I don't need to be lectured on morality by those who despise newspapers but are happy to live on the money generated by them Let the elected government do its job

Ah Say Boy Ah Say you taking with the left and giving with the right boy

Post by The Rooster on 01.12.12 10:00

Gerald McCann the self appointed peoples champion of press regulation would do to take care whilst venting his spleen. His advisors are either on holiday or non existent. He reminds me of the dog that bites the hand that feeds. Appealing to Mr Cameron for a review of the disappearance of his daughter he now thanks him by accusing his government of a sell out in the Leveson enquiry. I understand he has angered Mr Cameron in this regard.

A narcisist, McCann craves the limelight as very well pointed out by Aiyoyo in an earlier post, continually throwing the dice in his cruel game of bluff and deceit for all to see. It will be one of the contributory factors in his and the wifes undoing. Also whilst on the subject where's Mitchell 'the grey reaper' when you most expect him?

May we see McCann on Newsnight again in front of Jeremy Paxman...?

I totally agree. Many people, who otherwise would have sympathy with Chris Jefferies, for example, are disgusted that the McCanns are hogging the limelight, when it's obvious to most people that they lied about what happened on the night Madeleine went missing. However, I think that most of the media deliberately side-step the McCanns in their summaries. They prefer to mention The Dowlers and others.

Rooster, as you say, GM should be careful, and keep a low profile. The newspapers, who the McCann's have sued aren't going to forget. Jeffrey Archer ring any bells?

I always imagined that some member of T7 would become the weakest link and squawk. Watching GM's latest performance, however, I am wondering perhaps it will be their conceit, their appetite for limelight and their penchant for portraying themselves as victims that will eventually cause their guise to slip and allow the world to discover the real truth behind the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

The backlash seems to be gaining momentum, homer now has 166 green arrows. G McCann should have kept his mouth shut. Talk about scoring an own goal. Here are a few other good posts that I picked up on -

Many of theses complainants were happy to use the free press for their own ends. They can and always could seek redress in the courts. The loss of Madelene was tragic but it happened because she was left by her parents. They could have had a baby-sitter, they could have taken her to dinner, they could have forgone the fateful dinner. Subsequently they had asked the press for help. Thousands of pounds were raised to help them. They should now go home and live their lives privately.

Victims should not determine policy. The government is not and cannot be a protector of what life throws at you.

- GodlessMan, Earth, 1/12/2012 9:25

********

So because a few 'celebrities' and people who had a horrible time at the hands of the press we're seriously considering free-press should end. Total Madness. I feel sorry for them, but frankly i'm losing any respect or pitty I had for them over this. After all who would have been taking about either of these tragedies a week later if the press hadn't kept talking about them.

No offence but who is running this country, them or those we elect? I am deeply sorry for what happened to the Dowler family but they cannot change the laws in this country. They have redress in a court of law but they have no right to suffocate the press for a few who broke the rules. Don't they get the implications of their demands to silence the press...sorry but they were not elected to make policy in this country. What they are asking is and should not be possible. Am i the only one who can see the ramifications of this many years from now - if they keep this up? It doesn't bode well. Punish those guilty but don't punish a whole Nation.

Perhaps the newspapers are giving Gerry a feel of what it would be like if they were stifled. Poor Gerry, not getting any coverage anymore, will he be able to weather the embarrassment of being ignored on the front pages to all his hospital colleagues, and family. Who said "be careful what you wish for?"

I'm waiting for one of the media haridans of the likes of Jan Moir, Amanda Platell, Carole Maloney etc who have appeared sympathetic to the McCanns previously to point out that the couple shouldn't be pontificating having lost their daughter due to neglect and used the press when it suited them.

I often wonder whether the McCanns were hacked (I can't imagine they weren't seeing as many other people with less interest to the press were) and an injunction has been taken out to stop any mention of it being printed. Whoever did hack their phones (if they were) must be sitting on a minefield of info.

The neglecter appears as the spokesperson because when teach asked who wanted to volunteer to be interviewed nobody else dared put their hand up. OOooh coo'd the neglecter, I dare (thinking to himself..."therefore I win or is it... therefore I am") that means I get to do it again goo goody good... and thus he appears on national television. Understand the nature of the self centered one, it's all about him, him and him again. Chronic narcisism. He can't help himself. He doesn't care about anyone other than himself and satifying the most important thing in his life, his ego. He absolutely will not stop.

As far as he's concerned the world owes him recognition for a lost daughter, what person should have to suffer such a fate... regardless of how it happened. And that's the nature of the BEAST imo.

I'm pleased you think so too. I thought I was going mad and I was the only as I hadn't seen it mentioned anywhere before.

If their phones were hacked, I wonder if SY would be able to access the information from them or if that would not be legal. I can't remember if the police are able to use phone evidence in the UK in a criminal trial. Perhaps PeterMac might be able to help on that.

As C Mitchell said the McCanns' phones WEREN'T hacked, I always take the opposite as true of whatever Mitchell says.

ETA: I am aware from something I read recently that a security access code number can be put into a mobile (I don't use one so don't know), would that stop a phone from being hacked?

I'm pleased you think so too. I thought I was going mad and I was the only as I hadn't seen it mentioned anywhere before.

If their phones were hacked, I wonder if SY would be able to access the information from them or if that would not be legal. I can't remember if the police are able to use phone evidence in the UK in a criminal trial. Perhaps PeterMac might be able to help on that.

As C Mitchell said the McCanns' phones WEREN'T hacked, I always take the opposite as true of whatever Mitchell says.

ETA: I am aware that a security access code number can be put into a mobile (I don't use one so don't know), would that stop a phone from being hacked?

The only reason I don't usually mention my thoughts on the matter is because I have no evidence but reached my conclusion by deduction. When Clarence immediately came out and was at pains to claim the couple weren't hacked, alarm bells started ringing very loudly.

Don't they get the implications of their demands to silence the press...sorry but they were not elected to make policy in this country. What they are asking is and should not be possible. Am i the only one who can see the ramifications of this many years from now - if they keep this up? It doesn't bode well. Punish those guilty but don't punish a whole Nation.
Newintown,

No you are not the only one. I think a lot of people see that. But this parade of righteous people aren’t calling any shots any more than you or I.

What truly, what honestly surprises me though is that more people do not see this entire thing – and by entire thing I mean from the inquiry itself to this procession of righteous faces venting their spleens against the press – for exactly what it is, a charade, a sham, a very careful orchestration, a simulation of democracy at work and it has one purpose and one purpose only, to make the politicians appear to capitulate to public pressure in passing legislation they couldn’t otherwise have hoped for. But in reality that public pressure is only a few carefully hand chosen individuals backed by those who know no better and the gullible.

The upshot is that the politicians and in particular those behind them, the architects of this scam, this brazen deceitget what they wanted all along. And when they come under a public backlash of criticism in times to come, which they inevitably must, they will simply hold their hands up and say “Nothing to do with us, had to do it you see, Lord Justice Leveson has a very important title and he said we should and then the people demanded it. We simply gave you what you wanted.” They will plead innocence whilst smiling inwardly at the gullibility of the people. Mark my words, just watch.

There is criminal legislation already in place as well as legal recourse covering all of the people they are parading and the seeming actions of the press as a whole. The freedom of the press is a basic principle in any democracy. If they just simply tried to shackle it out of the blue it would never ever have happened, even in the wake of the phone hacking they knew it would still be an intensely uphill battle, hence Leveson and these orchestrated parades of righteous victims in support.

GM isn’t putting his foot in it, he’s a trump card. Some have asked where is Mitchell during all this? Who do people think is getting GM all this air time, this procession of interviews? While Gm may indeed seem to court publicity in this instance, considering Grange and his history with the press it would be patently unwise. It appears to me that CM’s absence is very important, he is indeed linked with government therefore cannot be seen to be part of the *people’s voice*. Everyone has been primed and is playing their bit, from the carefully crafted illusion of democracy given by mild opposition from Clegg and Miliband, to the line ups of press victims. The clock work figures have been set in motion.

They will, for the first time ever, by stealth destroy the keystone of democracy and strangle the press in this country. One day in a distant future that day wil be remembered as a dark one indeed.

“There are three Estates in Parliament, but in the Reporters Gallery yonder, there sits a fourth Estate more important far than they all.” Edmund Burke (1729 - 1797),

The question people must ask themselves is a simple one why? Why have those who we misguidedly believe represent us gone to such elaborate lengths to stifle the freedom of speech in a media that so largely sways public opinion? Is it because the politicians wish to carry on their scams unchallenged? Well they are still doing it regardless of the journalistic status quo so it isn’t that. Is it so that a few more paedos in positions of power can go unnoticed? Well they’ve been doing that very nicely for a long time already so it isn’t that, though the legislation will undoubtedly help in both instances.
