The Headlines today are “POLICE CHIEF: WE WILL REOPEN MADELEINE MCCANN CASE”.
No, I won’t bother to even link it up. “DETECTIVES working on the Madeleine McCann case say they are ready to reopen the investigation into her disappearance.”
Hmmm... weren’t these same words said by Gerry McCann, with a rather unfriendly face taking into account the that issue at hand was his own daughter, besides his likewise unfriendly looking wife, Kate McCann, used outside the Court?
Onlooking, their lawyer Isabel Duarte, who had just before revealed, detailing some, that some details within the files were completely overlooked and, by definition, deserved to be looked at again, thus meriting the reopening of the process?
That was in January 2010, I believe...
That means, mathematically, we'll hear an identical "we're ready to reopen the case...", somewhere in September 2011.
Hopefully, McCanns, you'll be wearing prisioner overalls when that time comes.
Another thing… what is meant by “detectives”? It can’t be Dave Edgar because he has no legitimacy to be reopening any process in Portugal.
It also can’t be Gonçalo Amaral, as, although he has tirelessly sought the reopening, he can no longer be described as “detective”.
Giving that this has come from a British Newspaper, and believing I that NO news coming from British journalist are not published without being revised and confirmed, I can only interpret this paragraph as “the NEW detectives that have joined Dave Edgar’s team, have been studying the case and have today announced that they are ready…”
Now, this paragraph starts to make some sense, doesn't it? It's got nothing to do with the headlines, but who cares? “Portuguese police have indicated they would be happy to work with the missing girl’s parents and their friends.”
The Police is happy to work WITH the parents?!? Shouldn’t the phrase be instead that the parents should be happy to work with the Police? After all, who is supposes to be leading who? Ups, a slip of the tongue here… the McCanns forgot to lose habits here, and still think an investigation is to be run on their terms, and on their terms only. “The couple, doctors from Rothley, Leicestershire, are due to fly to Lisbon on Tuesday to consult their lawyers. Legal sources in Portugal say they should use their visit to ask their lawyer to formally write a letter to the Policia Judiciaria and to the Portuguese attorney-general’s office."
How many a gazillion times has this been explained to the infamous couple?
It has been said so many times that even Bart Simpson is able to write it without a grammar or spelling mistake on the board:
To reopen the process all the McCanns have to do is just request it.
They don’t need to fly to Lisbon…
However, it seems that they need to be seen flying to Lisbon. The heat is pilling up and they need to be seen doing something…
A request is a piece of paper, no presence required. I don't remember them flying around to apply for the injunction on Gonçalo Amaral's book.
They just did it, didn't they?
So why is all this fuss for? “If a review was ordered, the Policia Judiciaria would suggest that there should be reconstructions of two key incidents on the evening of May 3, 2007, in Praia da Luz on the Algarve.”
“IF”, McCanns favorite word. As I don’t believe in this particular “if” the rest of the sentence is nonsense. and why have we jumped from the "reopen" of the headlines, to the McCann's "review"? Misleading journalism? Couldn't be, could it?
Let me conclude this piece of “news” (journalists out there, be ashamed of your profession). First, there will be no formal unconditional request to reopen the process. If there’s to be anything, it will be a list of condition’s under which the parent’s will ACCEPT that the process is to be reopened.
For example, that they never, ever, ever, even if proof points right into their noses, be considered "arguidos", that THEY’re the ones to pick the policemen that are to investigate and that these ARE NOT allowed to speak with Gonçalo Amaral; and that any reconstructions are to be done under THEIR exclusive control, and only with only those THEY deem think relevant present, etc…
ANYTHING that will guarantee an excuse for them to use and explain it isn't them to blame that the case won't be reopened after all, but of the uncooperative Portuguese authorities...
In legal terms, it’s called dilatory technique. Or in layman’s language, to buying time.
This is to go as far as it is intended to go: nowhere.
Knowing what you know today, do you think Gerry and Kate McCann would be happy with ANY reconstruction?!?
Only if they knew already that it would lead to nowhere, as is the case, and they know this because they remain in control, or so they think, of the initiative.
Just a side note… if this was true, would this be news in tabloids only? Doesn’t just THAT say it all?
The day I see a face of a furious McCann under the headline “Maddie Case Reopened”, (note the verb tense) then, my friends, I’ll smile.
So what is this? A desperate attempt to shake off heat, just that.
Bad news once again McCanns, I, for one am still hearing a swan crying, They say it’s spectacular.. but nonetheless means the end.
You having not fooled me a single minute, you have deterred me in the exact same time from continuing to expose you with what I think is PROOF of your guilt, because, unlike you, I’m really happy to help the Police WHEN they’ll reopen the files.
So, from where I stand, and according to you, from now on I'm not just helping the general public understand the HOAX you are, I'm helping the Police too!
Pretty cool and highly motivating.
Oh, McCanns, do feel free to prove me wrong.
I tell you what, you request the reopening without any conditions and I’ll apologise, right here, having called you LIARS.
What say you?
