The "Friend" and the Appeal


1. Introduction

This week we promised that we would help the UK with the reconstruction proposed by Mr Amaral. You know, the one he dared SY to do it with their Crèche Dad.

However two other things that have dominated the past week: Sharon Osbourne’s words of McCann negligence and the filing of the appeal to the Portuguese Supreme Justice Court by the McCanns.

So, we apologise to the UK and ask for patience for just one more week.

Lions and the Settlement of Truth


1. Introduction

One day it had to happen, one day the British tabloids would publish something like this about the Maddie case:

“But Leanne Baulch, 22, of Birmingham, created the page and wrote the fund was created “as a quest for justice and backed by supporters from all over the globe, in solidarity, friendship and above all, in the interest of furthering the investigation of the case into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann”.

And:

“There are many who follow Amaral’s dissatisfaction, and whom, like him, urge for the day the truth, or some more of it will emerge.”

Unquestionable and unequivocal support shown for Mr Amaral in a British tabloid.

1 Statement, 1 Article


1. Introduction

It’s said that culture is what we remember when we forget all the rest.

Truth is that memory retains only important events. Events that mark humanity for some reason.

And within these, criminal ones do occupy a relevant part of our memory. Not because of any voyeuristic or sadistic trait but because crime is deviancy and as deviancy is out of the norm, it is what points us to what norm is by being its exception.

That’s why we remember OJ Simpson and we will always remember Maddie. We have referred to these 2 for a reason and that is because both have  2 things in common: timelessness and globalisation.

The Sun will go down


1. Introduction

The hours preceding the battle are unquestionably the worst in time of war. Those long endless minutes when the soldier knows there will be a fight but all he knows about is that he will be a part of it. Other than that, little or nothing else.

And if his side is the one not holding the initiative then all becomes  even worse as there’s no way for him to know the when nor the how will things happen.

That’s the time imagination gets the best of us all.

Nine



Tale tells of the cat the lives are times nine

And at nine stops, it's where even tale draws the line

Where fiction ends and nonsense starts to get inflated

New billboards doth not make a new circus be created

The Last Chance Saloon


1. Introduction

As expected, things are really stirring up after Mr Amaral’s court decision.

Literally for years now we have been saying the final decision on the Maddie case was held up by UK involvement to the point of exasperation of all of us.

Now on April 19 this decision has finally been seen to come out, everyone involved in the case is having the last opportunity to place their chips on the roulette table.

It’s now or never.

The days after


1. Introduction

After a long wait, the decision from the Appeal Court of Lisbon on the appeal filed by all defendants in what we have called the McCann v Amaral Damages trial has come out.

Unsurprisingly, the decision was in favour of the defendants. Unanimously in favour of them. Overwhelming in favour of them. Totally in favour of them.

The last sentence of the sentence sums it all. Concise and precise: “Costs, in both instances, by the AA., appealed”, The AA. are the Authors/Plaintiffs, the McCanns.

Much waited news!

Now, we hope, the real game will begin. Finally.

A word to Mr Amaral and to his family, Sir, may this be the end of the horrible nightmare you've been subject to. To you and to your legal team, WELL DONE!

Thank you Isabel!

Every dog has its day


Even McCann sceptics and critics who can’t agree on the time of day seem to be in harmony on one subject: the reliability of the findings by the dogs brought in to assist in the search for Madeleine; Eddie and Keela.

Nothing is more likely to induce foaming at the mouth of their opponents than mention of the canine team and their handler. Mr Twitter is like the proverbial dog with a bone on the subject and his long-lost twin, flesh of his flesh, Insane shares his predilection for bizarre explanations of the dog alerts in various locations related to the McCanns.

Six months to find Maddie?


The Express, April 3rd 2016 wrote the headline “Six months to find Maddie: Scotland Yard set to GIVE UP on hunt for missing girl”, but a closer look at the article suggests it’s a repeat of last year’s guesswork.

What the Home Office spokeswoman is quoted as saying:

“Following a request from the Metropolitan Police Service, we have agreed to provide nearly £95 thousand funding which will cover the first half of the 2016/17 financial year.”

Nothing about a final cut-off date.

Maddie & Swinging


1. Introduction

This week we’re going to surprise readers with our answer to the following question:

Question A: What does the collective swinging that we think was going on in Praia da Luz and outskirts have to do with Maddie’s death?

Answer: Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Yes, that’s exactly what the blog thinks. We can only imagine the surprised faces of our readers.

However we are certain that by now our readers know that when we surprise them like this it’s because there’s a catch.

Third Option


1. Introduction

In our post last week “Vultures circling” we spoke about how it seemed these hyenas with wings were circling above and around Praia da Luz for a Portuguese paedophile.

Please note the difference between Kate McCann pointing her fingers at the Praia da Luz area, and the vultures we referred to in that post.

Vultures circling

1. Introduction

As we have shown in our past 2 posts, Kate has recently decided that Madeleine is likely to be in the Praia da Luz area. We have stated the reasons why we think she has said that.

However, a vociferous and prolific twitter supporter seems to agree wholeheartedly that she really means what she says.

Tide change


Now, at the end of winter of 2016, it seems that Maddie has suddenly bloomed like a flower in full spring.

If it had happened in the spring then we all would have understood it. But out of the blue in winter?

The importance of King Richard

We don’t know if the recent news, or to be more precise the article on February 15 in the Sun “I’m convinced my Maddie is still in the Algarve, says Kate McCann as she launches Child Rescue campaign” about Kate thinking Maddie is alive in the vicinity of Praia da Luz is anything related to the decision from the Appeal court on the McCann v Amaral judicial process undergoing its terms in Lisbon.
