Question: Was “Mission Impossible” Team at PdL around the time Maddie disappeared?
Answer: Yes, it does seem that they were indeed there, however, it can’t be determined if Tom Cruise was part, or not, of that particular crew.
We’ve already seen that the IRWINs, to appear as they do on May 3rd’s “reservation sheet”, had to make their reservation BEFORE that day.
THREE days before, to be exact, if it was Rachael who did the T9 reservation, or FOUR days, if it was Russ.
We’ve also seen that when the T9 reserved (either Russ or Rachael), the “tennis Mark Warner” MUST have already been reserved, as it’s the only justification for the T9's surnames NOT to appear on Friday’s May 4th “reservation sheet”, as they do on the ones dated before.
The T9 arrived on Saturday 28th, had dinner that evening at The Mill, and say that they booked for the the rest of the week to have dinner at Tapas.
Please disregard the above as this alone does contradict the possibility of Rachael having done the booking on the morning of Monday 30th, as “her” reservation wouldn't have been possible to include the Sunday 29th dinner, and we would be then left without knowing who in fact booked that particular meal, or if anyone did book it at all.
Sorry, I forgot, no walk-ins at Tapas, so SOMEONE must have booked it.
We know it was an absolute requirement, due to customer demand, to stand in line to get a meal, so if Rachael was the one who booked, on Monday 30th, then one other T9 must’ve had to wake up early to get a booking just for Sunday 29th.
It could've been Russ, and that would certainly clarify this whole booking issue, but unfortunately he does speaks about a block booking, which isn’t exactly the concept for a single meal, which is what is at stake.
But, as I said, do disregard all that.
What we have to remember is that the "tennis Mark Warner" booking was done before the T9 one. So either from Sunday 29th or from Monday 30th, this "collective" reservation was there for all to see.
Just before it was also left, for all to see, that now famous enigmatic note (or annotation ?), on that same reservation book, that clearly stated the reason why the T9 had asked reserved (not to be too far from the children they LEFT in the apartments).
Another odd "reservation" procedure only done in this really odd restaurant,
Fortunately, for sanity's sake, nobody has seen it but Kate McCann.
The BERRYs and the HYNDs booked before the “tennis Mark Warner”, as the sequence on Friday 4th’s “reservation sheet” clearly shows, so they also must’ve booked their meal either on Sunday 29th or Monday 30th.
Nothing we haven't already shown on Tapas Quiz Night Question #11.
Sorry to be repetitive, but we have to be crystal clear. We saw that meant that the PAYNEs, the OLDFIELDs, the O’BRIENs, the McCANNs, the IRWINs, the BERRYs and the HYNDs were allowed by Tapas to book in advance.
But were these people the only ones to be able to do that?
Of course not.
Remember our "Slide & Splash sheet", that we’ve concluded that it was but an inexplicable handwritten copy of Monday 07th'’s “reservation sheet”?:
It’s an important document because it clarifies that the HYNDs did book for that day, at 19:30 to be exact.
This particular reservation was crossed out for reasons we don't know.
One has to wonder about the criteria used by the person making the reservations.
About the "tennis Mark Warner" dinner cancellation a "CANCELADO" is written, but with the HYNDs he feels the need to cross out the name intirely...
The HYNDs, as we've seen, booked in advance, either on Sunday 29th or on Monday 30th, for their meal for Friday, then it would have been on the same occasion that they also booked this meal.
So either, just like the T9, on Sunday 29th, or on Monday 30th, the HYNDs booked for Friday 4th and Monday 7th.
You could say that he booked the Friday 4th meal on THAT occasion, BUT booked the the Monday 7th meal on ANOTHER date.
After all, we have NO statement from any of the HYNDs, do we?
Well for that to happen, on any other date but of Monday 7th itself, the HYND surname would appear first on that reservation sheet. By looking at the Monday 7th’s “reservation sheet”, by the sequence in which the names appear, we can then conclude that the SAVAGEs and the NEWMANs (misspelled as NEWAN) booked before the HYNDs:
So the only other possibility is for the HYNDs not to have booked in advance would have to be that they stood in the line, on Monday 7th, to book for that day's dinner.
How credible is that?
We now know that the HYNDs don't require to stand in line to book at Tapas. So is there any reason for them to decide to stand in a line they don't need to be in, early morning, to book a meal they're not certain they're having, as they later cancel it?
The fact they appear THIRD on that list, means they either stood in that line, which, I repeat, they didn't need to, or that the SAVAGEs and the NEWMANs were also able to book in advance.
No one stands in a line for fun.
So, if the HYNDs booked BEFORE the “tennis Mark Warner”, which they did, that means that the SAVAGEs and the NEWMANs ALSO booked before the T9, on Sunday 30th or on Monday 1st.
So basically we just have to add up these two names to all those others that were able to “jump the queue”: the PAYNEs, the OLDFIELDS, the O’BRIENs, the McCANNs, the IRWINs, the BERRYs and the HYNDs; and now the SAVAGEs and the NEWMANs.
That said, all we’d be saying new would be just to further confirm the naughtiness and disrespect with which the OC supposedly treated the majority of its clients, by granting inexplicable booking privileges to just a few of them.
But this is where “Mission Impossible” Team comes in.
Thanks to our friend, Insane, who adamantly and vehemently has shown the world, both here and on other sites, both real (Joana’s Morais' blog, comment #87) and imaginary (his blog), both the SAVAGEs and the NEWMANs ONLY checked in on Friday, May 5th.
Here is what this character had to say, commenting our Tapas Quiz Night question #4:
“None of those people listed on that reservation sheet - or the impromptu copy made on the slide and splash notepaper - arrived in PdL until AFTER Madeleine had disappeared. Go and check for yourselves, their names are all listed in the PJ files, together with the dates they stayed.
You are being lied to, by Textusa and her sidekicks, for reasons best known to themselves. These are all the details and references where they can be found
Savage, apartment G30, arrived 5/5/07, departed 19/5/07
Newman (Misspelled as Newan ), apartment fp08, arrived 5/5/07, departed 12/5/07
Hynd, apartment 0011, arrived 5/5/07, departed 12/5/07
Harrison, apartment dp03, arrived 5/5/07, departed 12/5/07
Mullard, apartment gp02, arrived 5/5/07, departed 19/5/07
Burdekin (misspelled as Budekin) apartment gp01, arrived 5/5/07, departed 12/5/07
Stinton-Heeley, apartment 0207, arrived 5/5/07, departed 19/5/07
Mackeson, apartment 0025, arrived 5/5/07, departed 12/5/07
Vincent, apartment cp02, arrived 5/5/07, departed 12/5/07
Stop lying to people. These guests ALL arrived after Madeleine went. Do your research properly, you are a total laughing stock”
He later corrects his statement, which he's absolutely entitled to do so: "Oh incidentally. I know Alistair Hyde was there the previous week - but he seems to be there on a rolling basis."
He doesn't correct anything about the SAVAGEs or the NEWMANs, does he?
hese people only arrive on the 5th. So there you have it. Both the SAVAGEs and the NEWMANs booked dinners BEFORE they even arrived.
THAT is only POSSIBLE if done by the “Mission Impossible” Team.
Unfortunately, from the available data, we aren’t able to determine which of their members were at PdL under those identities, so we cannot confirm if Tom Cruise was there or not, although the choice of “SAVAGE” might be an indication that it could’ve been him.
As we don’t want TANNER to do another one of her Tanners, and before we see published in The Sun that she’s pointed Cruise as "the abductor" she allegedly saw, let us clarify that we’re not suggesting anything of the sort.
We’re only stating that there was an IMPOSSIBILITY that did happen at PdL.
No, we’re not talking, this time, about abduction. We’re talking about ANOTHER IMPOSSIBILITY.
The IMPOSSIBILITY of being able to book dinners in an OPTIONAL restaurant at a foreign country BEFORE even arriving there.
Maybe Tapas, with all its marvelous unknown wonders did take bookings online.
Oh, and it’s useless to ask the "Mission Impossible" Team if they were there because "As always, should you or any of your IM Force be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions." As you know, we honestly believe that nothing of the above happened.
