Why Swing?

We picked this up in the JH forum:

kimHager on Sat Mar 29, 2014 10:19 pm

After this many pages of swinging /swingers I was looking through many and at this page it was definitely adult swinging before that the searches turned up swinging houses but let me see if I can post the main link and keep scrolling after page 875 that's where there were many more

Very, very interesting. Right up our alley, so to speak. That meant we just had to get our hands right in on it.

And were we in for a surprise, or better said, 8 surprises:

Friday, 28 March 2014


We have exposed and explained one of the most important and recurrent phenomenon that afflicts all related to Maddie: CLUTTER. 

How and why CLUTTER was and is implanted and how very effective it is. This was done in our post Clutter - From Here to TIMBUCKTOO (08Nov2010). 

All we have to do is to think how great and popularly ingrained is the relationship between the words “McCann” and “negligence” to get the idea.
But almost from the start, together with the CLUTTER, we have had another phenomenon that we are continuously bombarded with and which is easily mistaken for CLUTTER: STINK BOMBS.

UK CW's 2nd Update

If you don't understand logo, see end of post

When UK Crimewatch was shown in October last year, everyone was furious.

Everyone except us. We were merely disappointed

The day after it was aired, in our post The Beginning of the End of an Institution (15Oct13) we expressed the reasons as to why: Maddie had unfortunately become a game and the “other side” had not been exactly too picky when picking its visible players, of whom Redwood was the face.

Political Courage

(original video here)

As our regular readers know, we have a policy of publishing new posts on Fridays, unless we find a reason to do otherwise.

Last Friday, we made an exception. We decided to postpone the publishing of the post we had lined up, “Stink Bombs”, and keep the post The Proof that Ocean Club Reads Textusa for an extra week. We explained the reasons why.

The Proof Ocean Club Reads Textusa

UPDATE on 14 MAR 2014 09:01:00:

There are two ways to sing fado, Portugal’s typical most traditional music: the Lisbon way or the Coimbra one.

The fado from Coimbra has a very peculiar way of being applauded. No clapping.

The spectator, if pleased, has to simply produce the sound of clearing the throat. The idea is to have the spectator pretend not to have paid much attention and having him acknowledging, very discreetly, the artistic performance.

And it can be one of the most fascinating sounds ever produced collectively.

Swinging Evidence

There is one thing that is absolutely consensual among all of us who are familiar with the Maddie case and that is there’s a cover-up.

And it’s also consensual that we all think this cover-up involves the “British hierarchy” up to its government. That it’s a very high-level cover-up (VHLCU).

But what this VHLCU has intended to cover is far from being consensual.

Nor who is involved in it, generally speaking, or why.

Chasing Cars & Doctors

1. Chasing Cars...

When the PJ checked previous renters of the Renault Scenic 59-DA-27, they were asked a number of questions, including whether they knew the McCann family. The driver but one before the McCanns was Kenneth Walkden, who was interviewed on April 29th 2008. He hired the car between March 25th and April 1st 2007 for a golfing holiday with some friends. The distance travelled in the car was 945km. 

He doesn’t say which golf course they were playing on, but the Boavista or Parque da Floresta may have been amongst the possible destinations. The trip was organised by his friend P S and Mr Walkden said that they all went on holiday together every year.  Maybe to the same venue? The Scenic was also used by a number of golfers other than the Walkden party.

Chasing Staff

Recent churnalism about Scotland Yard interest in Ocean Club related suspects led us to revisit the Devil’s Finger post and Robert Murat’s statement that Madeleine’s disappearance had to be an inside job. His words: “If you want my opinion, it had to involve someone on the inside who works at the Ocean Club.”

The alleged note in the receptionist’s book, stating that the group were leaving children unattended whilst they dined, has never been found in the PJ files. So where did Kate find it, as she claimed?

Swinging FMS

Our post “Covering-up the Cover-up” got a surprisingly pleasant surge of visitors.  As we have said before, we’re unable to judge the popularity of each post before publication.

It obviously made us glad that the interest in the issue remains high, especially in times where the media and the chronologically erratic Portuguese justice system are, in our opinion unintentionally, tiring people out on this subject.

Covering-up the Cover-up

There are two-words that are joined at the hip with the Maddie case: negligence and cover-up.

One, as we know, has been made up and is part of the second. However the second, cover-up, is not exactly true.  At least in the way that you are reading it.

That there’s a cover-up, is an unquestionable fact.

Daniel Abreu

Daniel Abreu, the little 18 month old missing boy in Madeira was found alive. That is VERY good news.

Really good news indeed.

He was found Wednesday, the 22nd, around 08.00 by a worker, Manuel Teixeira, around 30/40 yards from the pathway near a small water canal, levada, more than a mile from his house.

Serial Journalism

Remember our May 2009 post “The McCann Game, shortly out of tricks?” where we tried to show how every “trick” played meant there was one less to be played?

That post is now 56 months old.

With the exception of the book (a possibility we never thought possible to be stupid enough to write such a thing) we have all this time witnessed repeats of the same tricks, over and over again: another sighting, another documentary, another presence in a TV show and another suspect.

We would like to welcome our readers back to the blog after the Christmas holidays. We hope it was a time to value the presence of your loved ones as well as a gruelling and torturous marathon of delicious treats for the body.

We’re in 2014. That means that this year, in May, Maddie can be declared officially dead. If an application for a declaration is made as it will be 7 years that she’s been missing.

We don't think there will be a need for such an application. We anticipate that Maddie will be considered, officially, dead before May 2014.

Thank you, Eusebio

Portugal is in mourning. This post is 24 hours too late. It took us 24 hours to gather words of friends and family to include in this tribute.

Eusebio was consensually taken as a very good person. We think he really was a very good person.

He was not simply a genius, he was a simple genius.

People pilgrimaged to see him play. All genders. Families. His passion for the game transpired outside all stadiums and national borders. It was about people in general and families. He did cross those borders for everyone to see him as a man first and a sportsman second. He brought football to people who never watch it or has the slightest interest in it. If anyone would tempt anyone to watch football, Eusebio would.

He was driven to the point of sainthood by the regime before 1974. He was one of the 3 “Fs” of the official propaganda: Family, Fatima and Football.

The Football was Eusebio.

Never involved in any sort of scandal. Never a star. Never his name linked to a headline that wasn’t about his greatness, as a man, as sportsman, as a citizen.

The biggest star in a team in which he never stopped calling his captain by “Mr Coluna” and in which he asked permission to take penalty kicks.

His sportsmanship was truly an example. A genuinely humble true sportsman. He couldn’t stand losing but was always, but always, a kind winner. There isn’t one adversary who ever felt anything but honour to be defeated by him.

But it is not only his sportsmanship we would like to highlight.

Eusebio was a Mandela. He lived in two wall less prisons. One, his race, the other the regime who made him an idol.

He was a black man in a white man’s world. In a white man’s time. A time when a black man was only considered human if a sportsman or a singer and even then always manacled to the colour of skin seen like a circus act. Eusebio was never such. Eusebio was a man. Truly loved and respected as such.

The regime made him a symbol. As we said, almost to the point of sainthood. So much so that Salazar clearly and openly determined that he could not be bought by any club in the world, including Real Madrid, a club Eusebio loved.

But Eusebio didn’t become the symbol of Portugal because of the regime. He became by his own right. He was Eusebio. He was Portugal. One couldn’t speak of one without mentioning the other, one couldn’t think of one without thinking of the other.

When the regime crumbled, Eusebio's greatness remained immaculate. The regime used him but he was always superior to the regime.

He was a truly global phenomenon before globalisation. The biggest star in the first televised, thus global, sport phenomenon: 1966 World Cup in Britain.

He never left Portugal and yet he was known all over the world. The world only realised where Portugal was because of Eusebio.

Eusebio was a Mandela because like Mandela he was a uniter. Way, way beyond football.

Portugal loved him and loved to be represented by him.

Today we all love football. We all love Eusebio.

But more than loved, which he will always will be, he will be remembered and respected.
