They were photographed and the photo handed to a press agency, who released it on 8 May, as the search for Madeleine continued. The McCanns held up these same pyjamas at two press conferences on 5 & 7June 2007. How could Madeleine have been abducted?"

They are also very aware that the ground they stand on is far from solid and need best barristers in the land to protect them.

The question is: is it ethical to hire an exorbitant "Silk" at last min mounting up the cost considerably for the other party?
Surely that wont go unnoticed by the Judge that despite already having 2 lawyers and 1 barrister they add another top fee silk at 11th hour to pile on the pressure for the other party in more than one way. The ability of mccanns to afford at whim of fancy the best on the land wont be lost to the Judge.

That is a lot of money wasted on silencing one person, when they could have spent that trying to find maddy.

But we all know that they have no intention of looking for her.

On Thursday, two newspapers had to pay substantial damages to seven friends of the McCanns who were on holiday at the time Madeleine went missing. Kennedy cannot comprehend how people could even think that the couple were somehow culpable, or how difficult it must have been to live their nightmare in public. ?To lose your child and then be blamed?? he said. ?It is ludicrous and horrible the things the press were saying.?


Is he optimistic that there will be a positive resolution? ?I am neither optimistic nor pessimistic,? he said. ?I am realistic. We are just getting on doing what can be done and who knows how it will turn out. It is a very big part of my life. There are a lot of people helping by putting in a lot of time. But as I have said, it is not about me, them, Kate or Gerry. It is about a poor little kid who might be out there needing to be found. So therefore we need to move mountains to find her.?
Carter-Rucks's costs: £288,503 for fighting McCanns v Bennett - Page 3 655851

Spot the key word.

Yep MIGHT.

Either she is out there waiting to be found or she isn't, There is no might about it.

She MIGHT be out there or she might be needing to be found.

Since she is clearly not with her parents and since they filed a police report claiming she is missing, she is clearly out there somewhere.

Since she is clearly not with her parents and they filed a police report claiming she is missing, surely then she needs to be found.

To include the word MIGHT implies the possibility she is not missing and doesn't need to be found.

If she isn't missing then the parents know where she is and/or who she is with.

If she doesn't need to be found why then the reports she is missing and all the alleged searching?

Does she not need to be found due to guilty knowledge or fear of the consequences?

If she isn't missing then why the police report and alleged searching?

Is the search to cover up a crime commited by the parents and/or their friends?

Why would parents file a false police report?

Looking at similar alleged abductions, we see guilty and deceptive behavior from the parents and where the parents have been brought to trial we see the parent(s) being found guilty of murder/manslaughter and child neglect and in one specific case with overwhelming forensic and circumstantial evidence showing guilt we saw jurors who were too lazy to actually review the evidenceand generally act as a responsible jury, ignoring the obvious deceptive statements from the mother and the grandparents.

In each case we see the self same behavior in the parents, the same body language, the same statements, the same inaction and the same excuses.

Statement analysis gets to the truth, it reveals the truth and the deception from the subject.

A single word tells us what we need to know, a single missing word, the same.

One has to ask what exactly kennedy knows, who he spoke to, what they told him.

One has to wonder why anyone would offer to spend their entire fortune and has spent large sums on parents who admitted child neglect and child abandonment on a nightly case?

Why the mccanns and not slob and slobetta from the local sink estate who did the same thing?

Why so many backers spending money to support parents who are involved in the disappearance of their daughter, a daughter which kate , gerry and clarence have told us is dead.

What are the mccanns involved in that warrants such financial support?

@Tony Bennett wrote:Today Carter-Ruck have informed me of their total costs in the case of McCanns v Bennett, which they expect to claim from me if they win on Wednesday, i.e. prove me guilty of contempt of court. They are as follows:

1. Solicitors' fees of Carter-Ruck to date:

£181,245

2. Disbursements: Court fees, process servers & couriers:

£1,484

3. Fees of Jacob Dean, barrister, for all hearings to date and advice:

£25,475

4. Fees of Adrienne Page Q.C., for advice and a 2-day hearing:

£32,250

5. VAT on all the above

£48,049

GRAND TOTAL:

£288,503



So much for this sentence on pages 289-290 of 'madeleine', by Dr Kate McCann:

"Adam Tudor and his colleague Isabel Hudson continue to do a vast amount of work for us, without payment, most of it quietly, behind the scenes"

I think they've shot themselves in the foot with the disparity in cost between the recent involvement of Adrienne Page and the fees of Jacob Dean.
What's to stop them hiring everyone and adding all sorts of fee's!

I hope you remember that when you win and they pay your costs that you should consider yourself a sole trader and that your fee's must surely be equivalent to both Adrienne Page, Jacob Dean and the rest of the solicitors put together!

As otherwise it would be a disparity of arms, and it certainly is not one of those is it.

Question
If it costs £ 250,000 to silence one person, how much would it cost to silence everyone in the UK.
Given
The population of the UK is around 60 million.
Working
Multiply 60 million by 250,000
Answer
£ 15,000,000,000,000 - Fifteen Trillion

Second question
What is the GDP of the UK
Answer
£ 1,400,000,000,000 - One point four trillion

Third absurd question
How many years . . . .

@Hobs
It could also be read as "a poor little kid who might be out there needing to be found" because she is alive and captive in some way, as opposed to who might be dead therefore doesn't require to be recovered with the same urgency.

He may not know the truth any better than we do. But what is really behind his motive to finance the Mccann campaign is a mystery, at least for now.

Oh my, things have come a long way in the last 5 years. The McCanns need to remember (my opinion) that the Fund of donations given by the public paid their mortgage a couple of times when they were in need of support (see link below). Now the McCanns are suing people and boosting the Fund from the proceeds (after the exorbitant fees of their chosen top people). How about the McCanns remember who supported them in their desparate hour and show how much they have personally contributed to the Fund - and I don't mean by fund raising events or writing a book, I mean how much have the McCanns personally contributed from their own pockets. Just my opinion.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8521940.stm

All this money, all this fighting, all this legal wrangling and Madeleine has not been found.

Post by russiandoll on 02.02.13 12:49

straying off topic, but in response to Monkeymind and PeterMac and the value of airing well known issues again....

On a foreign holiday people quickly
adopt a routine for everyday things...and we have documented evidence
that the McCanns did just this

breakfast in apartment
drop children at creches
morning activities for adults
pick up children from creche for lunch
drop off children after lunch
afternoon activities for adults
pick up children from creches for high tea *
bath, milk ,biscuits, story ,bed
adults get ready for evening out
glass of NZ white wine, relax.
go out to tapas for drinks and dinner
* [ and iirc there was some short evening playtime for children after tapas tea, before wind-down in apartment]

it defies belief, based on the above, that they did not develop a habit of entrance and exit regarding their apartment.
and so would not forget which door was used daytimes/ evenings, [ if
routine differed ] ,regardless of any stress they were under.

The coloboma is really useful when there is a sighting...the eye defect is that rare,the McCanns don't have to go here there & everywhere to confirm the childs identity,hopefully it has stopped unwanted attention on young blonde girls too although there has been disturbing reports since may 2007

And they had just moved house back then.

It would be interesting to know if they still have a mortgage wouldn't it?

If not, how so?
