Kate and Gerry McCann: Abuse of Power: Spudgun's Plea to Editors

Letter to Editors from Spudgun:

Dear Mr. Editor,

I'm quite sure that you are very busy, organising your hacks and other staff, clearing away space on the front pages of your newspapers to make way for tomorrows joyous headlines, not to mention the inevitable pull out and keep 10 page insert guide, explaining the tragic chain of events that have had to be endured by Saint Gerry & Kate of Rothley.

Bungling/Boozy/Inept/ Sardine Munching Porto Plods finally admit defeat!! The agony goes on for our Kate & Gerry. Vindicated at last!!

Just some, I am CERTAIN, of the headlines that we will all be reading about in the next couple of days. Readers will then be subjected to innumerable column inches over the coming weeks, with poignant articles from Richard Madely, Amanda Pearson, Carol Malone et al, explaining how they had all been there for our illustrious golden couple, supporting them in their hour of need, joining forces to combat and admonish those vile evil whisperings that were emanating along the corridors of certain internet forums and blogs.

No doubt, celebs agents are already in negotiation with tabloid editors, all lining up to prepare their clients to express their solidarity by way of exclusive interviews, as a parent myself, I can't imagine what hell they have had to go through by the way, my new book, which is out this Monday.....

Who knows? Almost certainly an OBE or two will be in the pipeline, especially if the McCanns are allowed to take credit for the European AMBER ALERT.

Clarence Mitchell will almost certainly be given greater impetus, either directly or otherwise, to organise the Government's Media Monitoring Unit, to clamp down and to CLOSE down those websites and bloggers that influence sufficient numbers of people to be potentially detrimental to New Labours diktats, (as he did the MIRROR Forum).

Tony Parsons, will undoubtedly have accrued sufficient soundbites to keep his Mirror column going for the next 2 years.

But, Mr. Editor, just before you fall asleep at night in your bed, having finished the proof reading to your simpering, sycophantic, subservient homage to Clarence Mitchell's release, please give a little thought to the following:-

Irrespective of what the Portuguese announce on Monday, the 20th July, there are a number of serious issues and questions which, FAR from being answered, have actually never been ASKED.

It may very well please you and whoever is dictating your editorial policy to perpetually vilify and BLAME the Portuguese authorities, their police or even their subjects for every aspect of the Madeleine McCann tragedy, but that would not explain, in any way, the following:--

The suspicions surrounding the McCanns and their possible involvement in the disappearance of their daughter arose, NOT because the Policia Judiciaria were inept and clueless, but because the McCanns made inaccurate statements, from the outset. Inaccurate statements about their movements, the movements of their friends, inaccurate statements about the state and condition of how they found the apartment and the shutters, inaccurate statements about what they discovered and discussed.

We know that they made inaccurate statements because what they said directly contravened and countered what the other stated, as well as what some of their friends stated. And they can't ALL have been correct. Inaccurate statements, Lies or omissions?

Likewise, it wasn't the 'bungling Porto plod' who strongly suspected or suggested that Madeleine may have died in the apartment.

It was a couple of British dogs. Specialist canines, who have a LONG and proven history and success rate in determining and locating the precise areas of residual tissue and and materials relating to cadavers. Specialist dogs who are currently proving to be both CRUCIAL and instrumental in unraveling the ongoing horrors being unearthed at Haut de la Garenne in Jersey.

Not, I am sure, that you will give much credence or space to their findings in Portugal, but HOW would you propose to explain away their behaviour in Praia da Luz, in the apartment, on Kate McCanns clothes and belongings? Having a bad day? Inconclusive? The fact that it is not wholly admissible in a Court of Law?

And what about that car boot sample? The Birmingham FSS, the acknowledged, finest Forensic science laboratory in the world? Martin Brunt is STILL on the Sky News website video, reporting a 100% DNA Match to Madeleine McCann. Was he misinformed? Contaminated sample? Mistaken Process? Total fabrication? We may never know, especially given that the British authorities are fighting to ensure that particular aspect of this case remains secret. (Have you ever asked yourself why?, Mr. Editor, or are you simply not permitted to question Mr. Mitchells rhetoric?)

Are you also, Mr.Editor, going to lambast those bungling, inept, incapable LEICESTERSHIRE police, who were also widely reported as concurring, and in some cases even SUGGESTING, that Madeleine died in the apartment on that first night in May?

'Licentious, lacklustre, Leicester Police loonies!' doesn't quite have the same ring to it, does it Mr.Editor?

Friends in high places? Curious RICH associates and backers, underhand Government assistance? Prime Ministerial blessings, chats and advice?. Papal divine intervention, European and world leaders hob-nobs?. It's all there Mr. Editor. Enough material to sell a billion Sunday journals. So why no interest?

You see, Mr. Editor; I don't really know what happened in Praia da Luz in May of last year. I don't know why, how or when. I wasn't there. Neither were you. We can only listen to those that are either close to, or aligned to, the proceeding in question.

It boils down to who and what you want to believe. I am reminded of Herman Goering. He once stated, "it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy". How right he was.

I realised just how right he was when George Bush convinced the majority of his people that Saddam Hussein had a hand in 9/11, just before he embarked on the massacre of an estimated 600,000 Iraqi men, women and children, just so that Halliburtons could procure the rich oil fields; (FAT lot of good THAT did with the current oil price, but I digress.)

What I particularly hate about that atrocity, is that the British went ahead and held his hand while he did it. Only at least Blair gave the British people SOME credit. He knew we wouldn't buy the 9/11 angle, so he made up the WMD's story, inventing documents, dossiers and 'intelligence' as he went along.

Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy.

Charles de Mendez? We would know for sure, exactly what happened to him, poor chap, were we to examine the countless surveillance video of the event. Except, for some reason, we can't. Because the tape is apparently damaged or lost, or the cameras malfunctioned or were facing the wrong way or were broken or vandalised. Or all of the above.

And of course, when Neil Mackay sensationally reported in 2003 that 'senior members' of the Labour Government were being investigated for 'pedophilia and the "enjoyment" of child-sex pornography', as part of the infamous 'Operation Ore', Tony Blair very quickly and effectively served a DA NOTICE on the press and media, banning details of these matters being reported. A ban that still stands today. A sublime example of how a Government and its press can lie, mislead and fool its people.

Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy.

So, you see, Mr. Editor. You will have to forgive me if I choose not to believe a single word that your paper publishes on the Madeleine Mccann case.

You will have to excuse me if I do not join in the rejoicing and celebrations when the illustrious couple are exonerated , nor contribute to their inevitable NEW fund to help them 'find their daughter'.

Because, although it may be ultimately true that there is insufficient evidence to prove the culpability of the McCanns in the disappearance of their daughter, there is most definitely AMPLE and OVERWHELMING evidence that the authorities of this country do not wish for the truth to ever come out.

BUT; if there IS a god, and the leaders who presided over this debacle and cover up ever have to stand and atone before him, then rest assured that their minions:- the paltry, gutless, servile cowards who spread their lies and diktats in their respective newspapers, will have to atone also.

That's YOU, Mr. Editor.

Perhaps you'd care to dwell on that point before you fall asleep tonight.

That, and the image of a precious, angelic and innocent little girl for whom, with your able assistance, Justice was denied

Godbless, Madeleine. Wherever you may be.
