It seems that the McCanns have made a further announcement, and that is they are to publish a book, in April 2011, about a SEARCH.
I might even be a buyer. If it’s about their fictional search for the late Madeleine Beth McCann, not interested.
If it’s about their search to get your money into their pockets, might be interested.
If it’s about their search to escape the inevitability of Justice, interested.
If it’s their search to get their “good name” cleared, with full explanations and details about their version of what happened between April 28th, 2007 and today, definitely interested!
Oh, by the way, McCanns & Co, in this little corner of the internet we’re not distracted by your idle, fruitless, attention-deviating campaigns. We’re staying on track. And you’re right in the middle of it.
Update: Nov 17th, 2010:
McCanns, I’ve been kind of busy lately, as you know, so I haven't had much time to whack your bottoms, at least in the way you'd certainly deserve, but let that not stop me from saying just a few words on what I think about your forthcoming book (?).
First, I’m divided between believing that you write and being sure you won’t.
If you had any sense, you’d opt, obviously for the latter, but as I’ve seen you do some REALLY stupid things (the injunction, the mockumentary, the Oprah… etc) I do think you egomaniacs are really going to put your hallucinogenic thoughts on paper.
I, for one, want you to do it.
Second, don’t think you’ve fooled me for a minute. Yes, your threats did find echo, and the “People in the Station” have, not so subtly, but effectively, a way to fund your fund continuous and endlessly.
For every book that is “sold” a “penny” goes there, right? And who controls the selling? The same people that you’ve just signed a contract with.
So if just write a one-pager, and the editors say, and pay the adequate taxes for, that they’ve sold a million copies for $30.00 a piece, who’s to deny it?
Or better, who can deny it?
If you have any questions on how the book business is run, do ask your friend J. K. Rawlings, because she knows it better than anyone else.
All legal, and unstoppable. Very nice scheme on your part.
Thirdly and last, if you do write it, I hope it REALLY sells like cupcakes. That it will hold the 1st place on the Best-Sellers list up to the following Christmas.
That you make a such a bundle of money that it will make Amaral’s book look like it sold very, very poorly indeed.
And unlike I said before, I’ll buy it, independent of content. Probably won’t read it, but I’ll certainly buy it. And buy some more copies for family and friends.
Why do I wish you this success?
Well, ask the “People in the Station”. At least the way that they’re spending it with you, they are CLEARLY showing you, and us, that there are some things much, much more IMPORTANT than money…
Do please speed up your writing, and please don’t take as long to write in your language, as you took to translate that other thing.
