Maddie's Rights

Dear Kate,

 I’ve finally received the copy of your book. Where I live, the mail is kind of slow, one of a handful of disadvantages among countless blessings.

My friend in the UK has refused to accept any refund for the “blood-money” she has given for your work of questionable art but, at least, of unquestionable bad taste.

We in the blog all hope to find that the purchase of the book will be worth our friend's real SACRIFICE. I now know not how to repay but the only option I’m left with is to send my friend my copy of Amaral’s book, and wait for the McCann's Portuguese lawyers to comply with the a Sovereign Country’s Court’s decision, and finally release the copies of the withheld books.

Then I can ask my Portuguese friend who bought this one for me, to buy another. Back then my Portuguese friend also refused any money. I’m almost tempted to feed the idea of setting up a library just on offered books.

I only don’t do that because I have already set up one: my head is filled up with unforgettable memories shared with priceless friends.

I digress as always. No disrespect meant, as I would have to have the most minuscule particle of respect for you, which I don’t, to be able to have such intent.

Let it be clear that from me you will never, ever, be disrespected.

Back to your book, I’ve looked at it. Better yet, have looked at the cover and it confers with what was shown daily in The Sun.

I haven’t read it yet. It’s Friday and I don’t want to spoil my weekend. You, especially, do understand what I mean, as you, better than all, know exactly how nauseating your book is.

But once I laid my eyes upon the vile object, it immediately came to my mind the Miranda Right’s. You know, that phrase that we’ve heard so many times that we’ve forgotten that it’s applicable only in the US, and even there, has variances from State to State: “You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say or do can and will be held against you in the court of law. You have the right to speak to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you. Do you understand these rights as they have been read to you?”

I believe the UK version is somewhat similar, at least in intent: “You do not have to say anything, but it may harm your defence if you do not mention, when questioned, something which you later rely on in court. Anything you do say may be given in evidence.”

“You have the right to remain silent / You do not have to say anything, you chose not to. “Anything you say or do can and will be held against you in the court of law/ Anything you do say may be given in evidence., that’s your book in a nutshell.

But whoever came up with the UK version, must of had you, Kate McCann, dead set in their minds when coming up with the wording.

You see, while the American version speaks about needing and providing a lawyer, which we all know is something that you’ve been able to achieve by the bucketful of the most expensive ones, the British version fits you just like a glove “it may harm your defence if you do not mention, when questioned, something which you later rely on in court”.

Now let me tell you what I’ll be looking for in your book. When I read it that is.

First, I’ll be checking the whole Reservation Book Saga. What you say was written on it, who wrote what, where it was, where it was left and who may possibly have read it. Let me tell that some people have already told me that you here had some sort of hallucination, as they say you say that you see things that nobody else has been able to see. Don’t worry, I’ll only believe it when I see it myself.

Then, I’ll read what you have to say about those crucial moments when you, apparently, found out that Maddie was missing. You know all the wooshing and clanking, or clanking and wooshing, in whichever order you decided to put it in your book, if you did put it in.

I’m also very interested in the apparent sudden urge that Gerry had to play with the window, a completely "natural" reaction for a father to have when discovering that Peter Pan has just flown through that same window with his daughter just minutes before. The Sun does describe it, but I’m sure that in your book it will be much more entertaining.

I’ll also dedicate some attention to all those people that a group of unknown tourists in an unknown little town apparently had coming in and out of the apartment during that particular night. From what I’ve been told, it seems more like it was taken out of a WWII Britcom. It's like the whole Brit Community in PdL was on it’s toes for a Fire Drill Exercise, and, just like clockwork, as soon as you wailed the alarm, half of the town obediently rushed to the preset muster point. I do believe that in the book most of these people remain nameless, but we know who they are, don’t we?

Lastly, let me just tell you how interested I am in the “lovemaking chapter” of your book. That particular subject in a book about the ordeal of one’s supposedly abducted daughter is quite revealing. It says tons about one’s personality, but, more importantly, even more about the need of even having written it.

Also it absolutely "validates" the fact that, albeit my timely calling to your attention, Dianne Webster's pictures of the lot of you having dinner around the BIG ROUND TABLE at Tapas, weren't published in your book after all because they were TOO INTIMATE... 

I intend to skip all those parts in which you dedicate to your own belly-button, so, I expect, as of Monday, to be a quick read.

By the way, I’m not foreseeing the need to change a single word of what we’ve written in this blog thus far about the case due to your book.

We will use it, obviously, to even further incriminate you, as well as to confirm that your group of 9, alone, couldn’t get away with it without external help.

And do read “external”, as starting just outside the apartment...

Best regards, and do enjoy your trip to Portugal.

Your… Textusa  

Post Scriptum: 
I’m starting to think I owe an apology to Mr Cameron. He may just have proven to be smarter than I initially thought.

The McCanns asked for help, but as a reader has commented, did they really want it? At least the way they got it? You see, by ”asking” the Met to look into the case, he has made aware, for those he knows more attentive, for the possibility of the Yard to “find” something.

This will certainly ease off some pressure from certain “privileged” quarters that have played "this game" by their own rules, but now do have to simmer down, so as not to run the risk of the broil spilling over...

Also, by “proposing” instead of “directing” he allows the Met not to come up with any result. They’ll look at the case very attentively, and then... look at it again, and if required, look at it as many times as they have to look at it, to really have a good look at it.

This is not good for the McCanns.

Cameron has now pinned them to the role they deserve to be in: mere pawns in the game. They go where they are moved, and pray that the bigger pieces, don’t find them appetizing enough for the next move in the permanent and endless game of power gaining where the two set of players gladiate mercilessly: the influential and the politicians.

Both REALLY powerful although the latter, living basically on opportunity and chance, are in a much more fragile position than the first.

 Now just imagine what life has become for the McCanns from now on.

Until now, they’ve spent each day looking over their shoulder to watch out for disdainful stares of all those who know them to be guilty but feel powerless before the powerful. Unpleasant but completely harmless.  

But now the game has changed. Now they still have to spend each day watching over their shoulder but now be completely and absolutely focused on who is looking. This time for survival reasons. Each second of their time is now to analyze what benefit they represent to a certain “rook”, or a certain “knight”, “bishop”, “queen” or even “king” to be unceremoniously kicked out of the board in a particular moment of time… which, for example, could be tomorrow.

Humiliating would be to be kicked out by another pawn... but that is a likely scenario, as they are the most numeric pieces on the board, aren't they, and very few reach the end of the game, so now they're all fighting for survival, aren't they?

And what’s the difference between this and a normal chess game? It’s the fact that the McCanns, in this case, are completely colourless. They are neither Black, nor White.

A very, very unpleasant position to be found in...

For example, suppose that in their forthcoming visit to Portugal, to promote Kate's book, “escorted” by the Yard, they're "asked”, out of the blue, to go down to PdL and perform a “surprise” reconstruction.

Wouldn’t that be fun? Just picture all those people literally jumping out of their chairs...

I have to stop to voice out my dreams…


  1. I read the post but yet not (YET)without much attention.

    Now I just want to leave here my concern with thin people.

    Mad die, getting thinner, perhaps reduced to dust.

    But, and this Man?

    I am very concerned about his wellfair.

  2. I bought the book but not because I support the MCcanns. I didn't feel I could comment until I did. I did feel it was not the morally right thing to do but at least I got the next two people in the queue interested enough to look at the PJ files on the internet.

    So far all I hear from Kate McCann is 'fluffy, worthless words' letting the reader know what nice people her and Gerry are. I've never read a Mills and Boon but would guess this is the same style.

    I have found many contradictions so far that I find it an exercise in rewriting history and only the McCanns perspective exists in her version.

    This was a bad move on K McCann's part writing this piece of fiction but I'm so pleased she did.
    The weak spots are so transparent.

  3. Textusa, I love you - you have made my day!

    To Anon at 9.10 pm, would you consider selling your copy on Amazon marketplace when you;ve finished with it (assuming it hasn't been put to some other use!) so that someone else (eg me) can read it without putting any more money into the bottomless McCann pocket? One copy could be passed on endlessly like this, each person recouping some of what they have paid for it.

  4. Anon @ 10.20

    You would be most welcome to my copy. I intend it to passed on until it falls apart (maybe that is a very apt expression, just like the story!)I would not consider selling it. I rationalised my purchase by thinking Snr Amaral will be the beneficiary when the McCanns have to pay his costs.

  5. I feel that those smiling days are over soon. The whole book, you'll see, is a self-justifying dribble by an egocentric criminal. the only good thing about it is that she seems to point the finger at the Ocean Club. A not very intelligent move, or a desperate waving of red flags when seeing everyone around her abandoning ship?

  6. I propose to do this - bookCrossing-with a warning written in the book about the content. But only to those who seek the truth in this case so strange; increasingly strange.

    So those, from S.Y., who would retire or get sick have been punished?

    Come to translate what is already translated .....

    So what can be a great vacation in a country that usually has good weather, really good.

  7. Hallo Text et al!

    Do you feel it would make sense for me to get the Daniela Prousa book ( in german), translate it and summarize it in english?
    Went out to get a copy but it was sold out and the store in Aix la Chapelle would have to re-order.

    Just let me know. Plesure to be of some assistance.

    Also: the Macs not only impounded the 7500 Amaral books fysically, they apparently also took his property rights along with all the rest they needed to find Madeleine.
    I, for one, was unaware of this. It explains why we have not seen The truth of the lie back on the shelves.

    Let me know.


  8. Dear Portia
    I would love to read Daniela Prousa's book in English if you can do that. I do read German, and have bought Amaral's book in German, but Daniela's book looked a bit long I thought for a person not very fluent in German.

    To Anon at 10.36, I will follow your excellent idea. I can't bear to buy a new copy, but I will buy a second hand one and then pass it on to everyone who wants to read it. I am desperately hoping that Cameron has seen through this disgraceful pair and was simply waiting until Dr Kate's words were proofread and in print before setting Scotland Yard on their trail. Well, one has to have hope, even after 4 years of their sickening celebrity.

    May 21, 2011 12:18:00 PM

    As you might imagine, we cannot publish your comment, although we're very grateful that you've made it.
    What we did was to "just paste it", the link that is, and send it our 10 best friends, asking them to resend it to their best 10 friends in turn.

    Thank you

  10. Since Cameron announced the intervention of SY the Mccanns have gone very quiet.
    If they had wanted this investigation there would have been many TV interviews, but they have not done a single interview regarding the investigation because they knew they would be asked questions and already they have said too much they didn't expect Cameron to do anything. They will not want to co-operate with a reconstruction for obvious reasons!! This would suggest the intervention of SY is the last thing they expected, especially as some of the 30 police officers are nearing retirement police officers will not co-operate with a cover-up not in this late point of their careers after 30 years service or however many years experienced officers will want to solve this mystery. No I believe the case will be fully invesitgated now it may take years, its going to cost a vast amount of money and tie up police resources, but in view of the duplicity and circumstances surrounding Madeleine and the fraudulent fund it needs doing.
    'gagging' orders celebrities have in place are being reviewed constantly in the media with pressure on people being able to silence the media coming to an end perhaps the Mccanns have superinjunctions in place, if they have we will find out about them.
    a thorough invesitgation which ultimately will lead to the re-opening of the case and the eventual court case involving Mccanns and Tapas friends and whoever else is involved. As Amaral said ' They have shot themselves in the foot'. Finally there will be closure and justice for Madeleine.

  11. Yes Portia I would like to read it. Please translate.

  12. Can you at least tell us if it's good news, Textusa????

  13. Portia,

    My apologies for only answering now. Anything that is useful for all to understand better the "McCann phenomenon" is of the greatest use!


    May 21, 2011 6:21:00 PM

    Yes, it's good news.

  14. There were some links on Amazon discussion forum yesterday o download for Kate McCanns book for free. I wonder if they will be there today.

  15. Anon at 4.00. David Cameron gave them what they wanted. Enough rope to hang themselves.

  16. I cannot believe that Kate Mccann is going to Portugal on her 'book tour' especially after she has insulted the Portuguese people and pj she now expects them to buy her trashy book of lies and add more money to her private bank account, she must be seriously demented.

  17. Anon @m8:38:00

    I also can't believe it but we will find out soon if there is more to this than we know about.

    Being realistic, who in Portugal needs this work of fiction? I read it and it's Kate McCann trying to salvage a tarnished view of her and the husband. Nothing she wrote adds to their credibility, in fact the reverse as the lies make you cringe.

    It certainly doesn't add anything to inspire anyone to come forward with information to look for an 'abducted' child. It's Kate telling us what a loving mother she was/is.

  18. Part I

    Kate McCann has a new book out, Madeleine, an incredible self-serving propaganda piece which leads me to believe she must have read my letter (below from October 4, 2007). But, as can happen to people who may have a narcissistic personality disorder, they just don't know when to SHUT UP. For, in the book, Kate's explanations further lead me to doubt the McCanns' claims of innocence in the disappearance of their daughter. One simple example is the most peculiar speculation of Kate that all her children may have been drugged by Madeleine's 'abductor' both the night she went missing and the previous night. First of all, Kate, this would serve no purpose to the 'abductor' except to waste time and it would be difficult to accomplish. You must know that. So the only rational reason you are claiming the children might have been drugged would be to explain away the fact that, indeed, if it ever is proven they were, you have covered that issue by explaining you were concerned about the children's lethargy and someone else is responsible. However, the only ones likely to have given the children drugs would be you and Gerry.

    Any good lawyer will tell you to SHUT UP, but, no, you keep talking, Kate, and we thank you for it.

    Source: Pat Brown Criminal Profiler

  19. Part II


    Yes, Kate,

    It isn’t your breast size or weight that is causing your problems. It is you and your narcissist evaluation of the situation and your PR team’s equally stupid assessment of the situation that is making you look so bad in the public eye.

    I am a criminal profiler with years of experience dealing with parents of murder victims and missing relatives. Your behavior and the behavior of your husband fall far outside or the norm for grieving parents. Now, this may be because you are just terribly narcisstic folks who had nothing to do with your child going missing (outside of neglecting your children and putting your needs to party before their needs for comfort and safety, a narcissistic behavior if I have ever seen one). You and Gerry may simply be so narcissistic you have no understanding of how other people view your behaviors and your PR team may share your narcissism so that no one on your team has a clue to normal human behavior.

    But, SHUT UP! Every time you open your mouths you do more damage to yourselves. You seem guiltier by the day. Your attempt at “damage control” is so obvious and so very much a day late and a dollar short, everything you do or say seems a cover up and a transparent attempt at proving your innocence.

  20. Part III

    Let me make clear what I think is weird about what you say and do:

    You choose words about Madeleine’s disappearance which make it appear you know there is no abductor and that Madeleine is dead.

    Both you and Gerry state your only guilt in the matter is not being their when Madeleine “was taken.” This statement makes no sense for abduction as Madeleine could not be taken if either of you were with Maddie when an abductor would have shown up. It makes more sense in the context that Maddie died while you were not in the apartment.

    Your statements and attitude about Madeleine being alive do not square with parents who really believe their daughter is in the hands of a pedophile or pedophiles who are brutally raping and torturing her daily.

    Your attempts at “finding” Madeleine do not represent the manner most parents would choose if they were actively searching for a live child but appear more to be the actions of parents trying to prove after the fact of a child’s death that they “cared” (not care) about her.

    Your behaviors of “keeping a normal routine” and “keeping up one’s appearance” is admirable, but extremely bizarre. I don’t know any other parents of missing children who can appear so together and cheery. When my daughter cooked our kittens by accident in the dryer, I cancelled Christmas.

    Gerry’s blog creeps people out. It is too upbeat. Terrified and distraught parents of missing children are rarely able to jog and play tennis and go to park with their other kids and have a fun time. Over a long period of time, maybe, but this is usually years after the nightmare begins. Some parents never recover from the trauma and it is common for marriages to fail and the brothers and sisters to feel their parents went absent after their sibling went missing.

  21. Part IV

    Gerry’s blog creeps people out. It is too upbeat. Terrified and distraught parents of missing children are rarely able to jog and play tennis and go to park with their other kids and have a fun time. Over a long period of time, maybe, but this is usually years after the nightmare begins. Some parents never recover from the trauma and it is common for marriages to fail and the brothers and sisters to feel their parents went absent after their sibling went missing.

    Your ability to sleep at night after the first five days, Kate, is beyond belief. It is the behavior of one who already knows the answer and even then, is quite a narcissistic trait. If you believed your daughter was being raped as you lay in bed at night, sleep would be very hard to come by. I guess you finally realize this and your mother is saying that NOW you can’t sleep and Madeleine comes to visit you in the night. What changed, Kate?

    Your PR team coming up with an answer to every accusation, answers that are ludicrous in themselves, makes you seem awfully defensive, and, if there is no way you or Gerry had anything to do with Maddie’s disappearance, you have nothing to defend. Furthermore, if all you care about is finding Maddie, you shouldn’t be wasting your time on such silliness. After all, as Gerry said, Maddie is the only important thing, right?

    So, SHUT UP, Kate. SHUT UP, GERRY. Fire your PR team as they are totally worthless. If both of you really are innocent and your think Maddie is alive, return to Portugal. Start searching for real (and it took six months to set up a hotline?). Cooperate with the police. Take the polygraphs as you have zero to hide and, with competent polygraph examiners, the questions are so simple you can’t screw them up. I will even give you the four questions that should be asked:

    “Did Madeleine die while you were present?”
    “Did you return to the apartment and find Madeleine dying or dead?”
    “Did you move Madeleine’s body at any time?”
    “Did your spouse move Madeleine’s body at any time?"

    P.S. Sorry so much copy + paste but this is good stuff!


  22. Ill order the Daniela Prousa book and see what I can do.


  23. In all the portuguese media (Sic, C. Manhã, Publico, Lusa, etc.):

    Only ONE CENT of each book sold will go into the fund!!!

    In Joana Morais blog:

    "The book ‘Madeleine’, which is already on sale in Portugal, was launched in London on the 12th of May, and for each copy sold, one cent will go into the investigation and search for the child."

    Is this correct, or have the portuguese media lost something in translation...?!

  24. Portuguese papers reporting that only 1 centime from each book gos to Search Madeleine. Well done to the papers because the all readers are pointing out this fact and making very nasty comments against the Mccann's. From 20 Euros, Madeleine deserves only 1 Centime. Well done dear Kate and Gerry... you are the parents of the year in SHAMEFULAND.

  25. Portia yes please German analysis is v good would love to read book

  26. Em Pt são 15 Euros ou 13 € e qq. coisa com 10%....LOL

    Além de não comprar, perguntei se tinham " Maddie a verdade da mentira".... A Funcionária não era daquela secção e iria saber.

    Não foi preciso pois expliquei o que se passava com os livros retidos.

    O melhor de tudo foi ela ter a certeza da conclusão da PJ e acreditar e defender também GA.

    Além desta conversa , eu ainda fiz a " boa acção do dia ":

    Tapar com outros.Mesmo que fosse por pouco tempo.

    A Miúda , a Mad die, jamais teve ou terá culpa .

  27. Thank you Portia

    Let us know if we can help you somehow.

    Why don't you start a blog and we follow your translation there and we can exchange points of view here and there? Just an idea that cross my mind....-)

    And when Kate and Gerry went to prison we can met each other (Textusa, May, Joana, Sin, Ironside you name it...) and raise a silent event with white balloons and white flowers for all the children that share Madeleine's fate.


  28. In DN Interview, Kate and Gerry saying it was a man who take Maddie.
    They are desperate to stick any guy to the Smiths sight. But never ever had courage to call the Smiths "LIARS". Wasn't amazing, the pair who discredit everything, ignoring, avoiding to touch the Smiths issue.
    Portuguese interviews are a disaster for the Mccann's. There is no many Antonella Lazzeris available in Portugal to print in papers words that give the full picture of the inteligence of that lady.
    In DN again, regarding the same interview, the journalist says the Mccann's are criticising GA for defending Madeleines death without proves while they defend an abduction without any prove. Not good the picture in Portugal, for you Mccann's. The all country is mocking you.

  29. May 23, 2011 9:16:00 PM

    "And when Kate and Gerry went to prison we can met each other (Textusa, May, Joana, Sin, Ironside you name it...) and raise a silent event with white balloons and white flowers for all the children that share Madeleine's fate".

    A celebration of a short life.

  30. Well said Sina J - long prison sentences await the Mccanns and Co. This 'story' is far from over.

  31. Before you take down the McCanns you must destroy the marketing and money laundering machine behind them. There are people earning dirty money and others spending lots of.. to hide their secret and selective lifestyle. That's why Kate felt the need to tell people how much she lost her sex desire for Gerry. Someone should ask her: is there anybody else that deserves your attention? we ask you this because anyone who reads your book will understand that you do not have virginal manners no matter how hard you try.

    The best track to follow is to check all the addresses McCanns have been in PDL since 2007, how many persons gave them keys to places... keys for the church... keys for... (to whom those places belong ...) and why are they coming back to Algarve in a more or less secret flights...

    One hand washes the other....we have to know why. Finding the names and properties would help (a LOT!).

    I think if they really got rid of the body for good the number of flights would decrease (but that's only me thinking...). There is a crack in everything! That's how McCanns will be caught one day!

    And will not be here will be London that will "let them down" this time. Their lift image has little to do with Portugal (except showing the police they are not afraid, although Kate choose very carefully her words when was asked about that special police deal..."was not done directly...was done through their lawyer"...everybody knows about confidentiality between clients and lawyers).
    The main reason for a lift image has to do with UK public and that's it.

    We have no idea which is the really situation of McCanns in UK and we do not know what people think - generally speaking - about this case. Media is not a faithful source.

    McCanns know a lot but prisons are full of people much clever than them!

    The only consolation I got from this case is that police will take this example to improve their action when fake abductions came forward.

    No matter what kind of justice will be done (is if) because will not be enough for little Madeleine neither for all the "Madeleines" around the world.
