I, like you, was appalled by the inept inquisitors.
Lawyers and barristers train for years in questioning methods and most of the questions were so lighweight they were neither challenging or even a vague attempt to get to the truth.
When James and Rupert Murdoch sat down the chairman was smiling and making a joke with them. Completely inappropriate. Let’s not fool ourselves; politicians will always be afraid of people like the Murdochs.
These people are dynastic, power passed from generation to generation, whilst politicians know their seat in power depends much on the whims of the people, which, compared with the others, is but a figment of time.
And a person only lives a generation, so it's important NOT to upset the particular individual that happens to on the "throne"...
When the hearings finished I felt the whole affair was so downplayed that it seemed trivial, the anticlimax changed the matter from gravely serious to a few mischievous people doing what journalists do and a doddery old man that could be excused for not knowing what day it was.
The point of this blog, as we’ve said, is Truth.
On Tuesday 19th , 2011, we, although you miht have not realised it, came as close to it as, probably, ever “The Establishment” will allow.
A distance that should never exist between us, but we know it does.
This blog does to its part in trying only to keep it on the shortest leash possible. Even if, one day, Maddie’s death is clarified crystal clear, you will be further from the truth than you were on that day.
You see, they did “play a role”, quite adequately, but were FORCED to play it. And by whom?
What I saw was that ARROGANCE and CARELESSNESS bowed before those they had forced to kneel before them: YOU.
Neither the Murdochs nor Brooks (Ms B) were addressing the MPs. Nor the MPs were they addressing those they had summoned. They were communicating directly to YOU.
Ms B in the role of ignorance, which, if true, amazes all on what they do spend the 10-12 hours they say they “work” daily, and the MPs in the role of “please-excuse-us-but-we-HAD-to-summon-you-here”, evidently hoping that no grudges would be held afterwards.
But the important thing, is that they HAD to play their role. Why? Because of you.
Let me say straight away that nothing moves me against the Murdochs. I wouldn’t pick them over Brian Kennedy or Richard Branson, just mention two names of wealthy people that have allowed their name to be linked with the McCanns.
Nor do I have anything against the McCanns. All I want is that they’re brought, ADEQUATELY, before justice.
And if the outcome results in the sentence being a simple a slap on the hand, I’ll be satisfied.
However, they DO have to be brought to justice, and, I repeat, in an honest (how sorry I am to have use this word in this phrase) and adequate manner.
No legal technicalities such as insanity pleas, for example. A truthful exercise of justice is just what is demanded.
Because what links people like Ms B and the McCanns is exactly that: the absence of truth.
The McCann story, was run by the POWERFUL. The media, led by the British tabloids forced public opinion into one, and only one single direction. No other was allowed, and any and all dissension was immediately persecuted.
The story was so obviously false that it smelled bad from a mile away, but, hypocritical to its core, the media continued to pursue the direction it set out to do so from the beginning, in an exercise of ARROGANCE never seen before by mankind.
And when I say mankind, I mean it literally.
There were very few corners of this world where Maddie’s coloboma didn’t get to.
And that is THE crucial detail in this whole story: it was an worldwide SUCCESSFUL exercise of ARROGANCE.
The so called McCann Story PROVED to people like the Ms B (like other RELEVANT Black Hats) that they COULD.
That if they WANTED, they COULD, and as they COULD, they WOULD.
That is the phrase that you have to retain: they understood that they COULD. And on a worldwide scale, stepping over, not only the truth, but over Sovereign States and all their LEGITIMACY.
But on the 19th, we, by FORCING them to represent a role, made them see that they that they COULDN?T after all.
At least, not so blatantly. And that was your and our victory on that particular day.
Then and there, the McCann Affair was placed where it belonged and should have never left, nothing but a tragic but IRRELEVANT mishap that befell on an unfortunate child.
Not filled with state secrets nor of sufficient relevance to involve any kind of diplomacy. It was a simple police case, that would have been solved quickly were it not for interests completely foreign to that particular child.
My prediction about the somberness of the McCanns future had yet another two confirmations: the closure of the McCann Facebook page (not taking any more posts), and the shut down of the findmadeleineblog.blogspot.
About the Facebook page, it was closing down last week so signs they were sloping off. Their army is packing their kit up and going home rather than lose any more foot soldiers.
About the blog there is something interesting to be pointed out. The reason given was “an unavoidable one (decision) due to changes in circumstances”.
How well we understand that.
But what caught our attention was the following “Donations we will transfer to a selected charity with the same aims to make sure every penny is used as intended and can help other families.”
The McCanns are not named, nor the Fund, which one would expect, would “every penny” go to.
No, instead it will go to where “EVERY PENNY IS USED AS INTENDED”.
Is this a recognition of the obvious, and that is the Fund never funded what it state that it would fund? Like, for example, legal fees against Amaral?
I see no other reading.
But this blog, unlike Rebekah Brooks, we won’t forget the McCanns.
After mentioning others she just forgot to mention the McCanns during the hearing albeit the letter to the PM (signed from David to Kate and Gerry, which is NOT expected protocol from a PM) that made front page in The Sun as well as was this tabloid's intention to serialize Kate's book after being published a little over two months ago (although in the week before it was, it did anticipate, through DAILY articles, the publication), we will not abandon the couple.
I would dare say, that Rebekah's lapse of memory about the McCanns almost justifies her lack of memory on many other issues...
Anyhow, we will not abandon the couple. Not now that the world is PHYSICALLY crumbling around them.
No, we will not abandon them. Nor the Black Hats.
