So let us be clear.   This story is beginning to fall into place.

An unnamed man says that he was approached at a party
by an unnamed man who says that he thinks he saw
an unnamed girl - who looked like a girl whose last photo was taken 7 years ago -
on an unnamed island
in an unnamed sea or ocean
some unnamed time ago.

Call in the Yard !

Round up the usual suspects !
 
This is strangely unlike you, PeterMac, but you have missed something out:

The article also says this: "According to a source..."

The source was also unnamed

Dr Martin Roberts: "The evidence is that these are the pjyamas Madeleine wore on holiday in Praia da Luz. 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?"

This guy has got to be the McCann's perfect witness - no unecessary details such as actual places or names which can actually be investigated and disapproved (unlike those pesky members of the public who were inconsiderate to name actual individuals and locations thus leaving the suspicious to wonder why the parents seemed so indifferent).  And so conveniently timed as well! Really if he didn't exist someone would have to invent him wink

Yes, they are all taking the piss out of a 3 year old girl.

You shameful bunch of b@stards, all of you.

For Gods sake do the right thing for once by this little girl and put her to rest.
For me, this is the most poignant comment to date.... a world of slathering, cowardly adults, gratifying themselves by defiling a defenseless little girl.
Thank you.

I just find it so disgustingly horrible that Maddie is being used to sell newspapers with ludicrous headlines, that she is being used by her parents to frighten her siblings with lies about monsters and suicide, that innocent little Maddie's legacy is a wealth of websites some of which include Madeleine McCann jokes and satirical images.

Maddie's name has been trashed by her own parents aided and abetted by the police, media and government of this stinking country. For money. And for reputation management.

If the McCanns had told the truth 6 years ago none of this would have happened. OK, so they wouldn't haven't had millions of pounds of donations to help pay off their mortgage and they'd probably been shoved in the slammer for a few years, and probably lost their jobs, but they'd most likely be out by now and not having to live this despicable web of lies. And the twins would have been protected from all the lies their parents keep telling, not just to them, but the whole wide world.

I remember feeling offended by an advert on the telly years ago where a dead headless chicken was being used to dance to sell some such product. It ended up being on the floor so I guess it was just thrown away. What a waste of a life. I actually wrote to the TV channel about it because I felt it was humiliating to that poor creature, despite it being dead. It just didn't seem right to kill something just to make fun of it for money.

That is how I see Maddie being used and it's just horrible.

I have never felt so angry about this case than I do today.
I agree I think now the twins are 8 and old enough to read then how sad for them if they see headlines like this.

Just been reading Textusa and I come across another coincidence. Jayne Jensen and Annie Wiltshire who had dined at the Tapas socialised with a 'middle aged barrister' and a TV producer. Coincidence or what?
Sorry can't give a link as on my phone but it is the Friday 17 May 2013 60 of us blog.

My, my very interesting, though not sure he is a barrister - perhaps someone with a better understanding of lawyers could advise?

A satirical view of this story but i feel they have knocked the nail on the head

MADELEINE McCann: Anorak’s look at the missing child in the news. As the McCanns pursue Goncalo Amaral for libel damages in Portugal, the British press publishes a welter of new Maddie news. Yesterday, the police told us that the child could have been stolen by a burglar. The Met offered no proof to support its theory. No evidence. She she could have been stolen by a burglar who seems to have taken nothing else from that holiday apartment, right?
Today the Mirror has more amazing news. Yesterday, it said Maddie had been taken by paedos. Today it thunders from its front page:
New Madeleine McCann sensation: Witness tells barrister he saw girl ALIVE just weeks ago
And he waited this long to tell us? Maybe this man of law was studying the evidence?
A shaken barrister has told police how a man boasted to him that he had seen missing Madeleine McCann just weeks ago.
Why was he shaken?
In a sensational development the witness said he was stunned when the man confessed he had met the girl on a ­Mediterranean island.
Confessed? This unnamed man’s a suspect?
The conversation took place at a party and breaking down in tears, the lawyer, who we are not naming, said: “I can’t tell you exactly why I believe what I was being told. It was just a gut feeling.”
Still need more facts? Isn’t an anonymous man’s gut feeling of another anonymous man’s story enough?
The witness added: “I knew that by reporting it, it would ­compromise me in all sorts of ways. But it was something that I couldn’t ignore. If I hadn’t said anything I couldn’t have lived with myself.”
He’s now a witness? But he never saw her. What did he witness?
He said he was convinced the confession was genuine, despite many other people coming forward with unconfirmed sightings and false leads since she disappeared in Portugal, aged three on May 3, 2007.
Many of them were convinced.
When asked exactly what it was about the description he was given that forced him to act, the lawyer said: “I have told the police ­everything that I was told about her. They know what that was and that is why they have acted. I was able to be a bit more specific than just the island but I haven’t been able to tell them exactly where the man said she was. I am now terrified that she has been moved elsewhere.”
Would the police be failing Maddie if they were not right now combing this island?
The confession was made at a party in the North West of England in August and the lawyer gave a full statement to his local force, Greater Manchester Police, the following day.
Confession?
According to a source, the informant is being treated as a credible witness because of his profession as a barrister and a pillar of the community. He has been in contact with detectives within the last few days as they act on his crucial statement.
Police take him seriously because he’s a barrister and not, say, a road worker, journalist, reggae singer or builder. If he were a doctor would they take him more of less seriously? Is there a pecking order of truth?
That this news should feature as Goncalo Amaral is telling a Portuguese court he thinks the child is dead – and the McCanns are fighting to say that he is wrong (he has no proof) – seems coincidental.
The Mirror adds:
Our revelation comes as parents Kate and Gerry revealed their hope their daughter would be found thanks to new evidence uncovered by a separate police probe. The couple will appear live on BBC’s ­Crimewatch on October 14 to plead for ­information about their daughter’s ­abduction.
BBC Crimewatch editor Joe Mather said:
“We’ve been working very closely with the Metropolitan Police on a new Madeleine McCann appeal for several months. We’re very hopeful that this major reconstruction along with the ­substantial new lines of enquiry will prompt viewers with vital information to get in touch with the officers in studio on the night of the programme.”
The reconstruction should help.

If Mr. Brian Kennedy, the windows millionaire, is still available to fund the McCanns for whatever and whenever, for as long as they need, (he did offer something like this didn't he, to help them get Madeleine back?) then Mr. Smethurst, being Mr. Kennedy's lawyer (if I am correct) and Mr. Kennedy himself, will surely be concerned about the McCs losing the case in Portugal, if it is accepted that Maddie may be dead. So a sighting of this nature must be of considerable interest to them, from a financial point of view. It certainly is an opportune moment for Madeleine to have been seen alive, and obviously enjoying life on a sunny mediterranean island.

This supposed McCann version of events reconstruction on UK crimewatch is being screened in UK, Spain, Holland, Germany but not Portugal? I want the british media circus to explain on that very programme why not?

I posted this earlier Woburn_exile, because it seems they did not want to show it..........and I don't blame them the way they have been treated.

Well it's really taking the p*ss to expect a Portuguese television company to broadcast anything McCann generated given that another Portuguese television company is in the dock THIS WEEK on a libel trial brought about by the McCanns.

Just my opinion (and sorry for the swearing).
