On the news last night we saw AGAIN how the McCanns have once again got their faces on TV by trying to get the PM to do something about little Madeleine. Whatever your thoughts are re the disappearance of that little girl, did the parents themselves have something to do with it or was it an unknown nutter that spirited her away? It would be nice to spare a few moments of our time to think of that child. How would we as a youngster have felt if it had been us got left alone in a flat in a strange country while our parents buggered off to have dinner with friends. what must that child be thinking now [if she is still alive] after all this time? Maybe I'm a cynical old sod but every time I see some parents come on TV and beg, tearfuly for information about the where abouts of their lost child I'm always thinking 'yeah yeah yeah, I bet it was you'........ As for the McCanns? well....... One day I just hope the truth will out.
Not bike related but.........

I don't understand them. I never left my kids alone to go for a drink. On holidays, I sat on the balcony (alone) so that I knew they were safe.
On the assumption that they are innocent - they will never forgive themselves for what they did.
As for Madeleine, if she is alive, I just hope that she has found her way to a kind loving family that wanted a child, and hopefully she was young enough when she was taken, to have forgotten her past. (It would be very distressing for her, if she remembered her 'other family'.)
Remember Ben Needham, abducted in Kos, in 1991, aged 2? Maybe that's why I kept mine close - similar time/age... These things DO happen.
If it ain't fun, don't do it
I never left my children alone when they were young (I don't like to leave them too long these days, and they are 13 and 15 now!
I don't know what was going through the McCanns heads, there are so many things we don't really know about the story (why was Maddelaine taken and the other two left etc.).
Whether they had anything to do with the dissappearance, or were just careless with their children, I for one have always felt disturbed by their constant attempts to glorify themselves throughout this.
My thoughts are with Maddelaine, and hope she is still happy and well somewhere.
its is a shame she disapeard
but i do think its her parents fault and why the hell does her mother feel the need to spend her time writing a book about it surely theres better things she could be doing instead of trying to make money
When the Mrs and I
go on our mediteranian holiday, every year, we have taken a picture of Madeleine with us in the hope we may spot her. Its a long shot I know. Since the time of her abduction she will have changed quite a bit but the defect in her right eye will still be there.
she is still alive and was tagetted and stolen to order...
As for why is the mother writing a book? well, to make money to fund the search, as the donation money has all gone.
They will never forgive themselves...this is their punishment, but it hardly fits the crime.
I must admit, I used to leave the kids in the hotel room, and we would be in the hotel bar. I would check on them every 10 mins.
But leaving them in a seprarate building a few minutes walk away - they were asking for trouble.
something not quite 'right' with this case......i don't suppose the real truth will ever be known.
Yes, this case looks very suspicious indeed - even if the McCanns are guilty of no more than gross negligence, it's rather disgusting that they've used money donated by the public to pay off their mortgage.
Anyone benefiting by as much as a penny from such a tragedy is bad enough, but one would think this pair would want to be totally above suspicion.
The Portuguese police certainly thought they were guilty of something. One might suspect that they drugged the kids to keep them quiet (given they were both GPs) while they had a jolly evening out boozing and partying. Upon discovering one had died from overdose, asphyxiation or whatever, they disposed of the body.
Whatever. That couple give me the creeps.
Having seen them again on my TV screen I thought 'here we go again'.... another media circus! As much I don't like to think they have done something, that nagging feeling says something all together different! Nope for some reason I just don't trust them.
What gets me
is leaving a 3 year old on her own in a strange land (ie, in a relatively unfamiliar place) - in my mind, they should be facing child neglect charges at least.
What makes it even more unforgivable, is that they were both in the medical profession, and really should have known far better.
Something doesn't add up with them.
They can't be charged with neglect in the UK, because they didn't commit the crime in the Uk.
I would imagine that the police in Portugal are still hoping to charge them with something else...
If it ain't fun, don't do it
I, too, never left my kids alone. I even got them out of the car while I was paying for petrol. I could not have lived with myself if any thing had happened to them. There is always the chance of accidents but leaving young children alone is not accidental.
I would love to know the truth about what happened but I think this is always going to be unknown.
Try to be a sparkly unicorn, not a miserable cow.
They are just trying.....
To cover up their guilt about being on the piss when they should of been there for her....
Its poor us...Look at us...Well if you had been there like you should have been in the first place like any parent you would not be in this situation now...Deal with it and stop blaming everyone else.
tellin u now sprag
THE TRUTH WILL COME OUT IT ALWAYS DOES!
AND U NEVER EVER EVER LEAVE YOUR KIDS NOT 4 1 MINUITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
....diplomacy out of the window for me now.
Personally,I think these two are complete arseholes who,if they'd been so called 'council house scum',would have been locked up within a month.
Can only hope the PM is as cynical as I am and is offering the police help with the aim to uncover other truths.
It doesn't add up
Its clearly not a simple case and is unlikely to end with madeleine being found alive and well.
Why would the parents want further investigations if they were anyway responsible other than just for neglect? Its just very odd.
How common is the eye defect? Assuming its pretty rare, if she was still alive why hasn't anyone who knows her reported her as possibly being madeleine. Tragicly its seems more likely she is dead. Either killed by the abductors or accidently by the parents (seems unlikely) or maybe by misadventure (also seems unlikely)
Whatever the truth it doesn't seem a sensible use of police time at the British tax payers expense.
Clearly the McCanns didn't use donated funds wisely.
Why don't they
Take a lie detector test to clear there names , Because like most of you ,To me something does'nt ring true.
Clear the suspicion , then people and the police might be more supportive.
Somehow , I think they may decline !!!
Sadly, lie detector tests
can be made inconclusive and offender profiling is not much better than random guessing. Hard evidence is in short supply and without any evidence to the contrary, their alibis seem to stand up to scrutiny. Although the UK media picked up on the story big time, the disappearance was much less publicised elsewhere in Europe, so the chances of Madeleine being identified are pretty remote (if she's still alive). I don't know anything about the parents and we all respond differently to extreme circumstances, so I can't judge whether their response is normal for them or not. I can understand them wanting the publicity and money to help with the search, but like the rest of you I don't particularly warm to them and don't like some of their actions. Really feel sorry for their other children who must have been hit hard by the event and the subsequent public feeling towards their parents. I just hope Madeline has been kidnapped to order and has a good life (and I make bloody sure my kids are close, too many wierdos about!).
Edited for spelling, doh!
guilty as hell the reason for this is. people come up with ideas how to catch people out. well i have one if you got time to check my theory out. google sharks great white look at the eyes. then google convicted killers ie yorkshire ripper, mira hindley. enybody realy who has been convicted for murder then look at the eyes they are exactly the same. deeply dark in coulor and no pupils showing. then look at a normal photo of eny one you like and eyes are normal infact google people who have been wrongly convicted and they will have normal eyes... then google when maderlin first went missing then look at pictures of the parents. and then tell me wich one you think is guilty but the other one knows what crack is. its my theory and i will stick by it my self personly think she as met a unlawfull end but this is becouse of what i see in the eyes...... its what i call the shark eye theory.... same as other profilers i go by the eyes
I have to agree with most about these 2, and on top of being stupid in leaving kids alone, the next day when she was missing the concerned father had a round of golf FFS!!! If mine had gone missing I still don't think i would be resting yet
