Kate McCann's critics quiet at last

TWO years on, the tide seems to have turned at last for Kate McCann.

It really does seem to be sinking in to even her most vicious critics that she played no part in Maddie's disappearance.

You only had to watch Kate on America's Oprah Winfrey Show to see how utterly destroyed she is.

At least half the country spent several weeks thinking she was up there with Myra Hindley and Rose West. I got a lot of outraged emails when I stood up for her from the start.

But I bet you this. As the foreign holiday season gets under way (for those who can still afford it), how many parents will nip down to the bar for five minutes leaving their kids asleep in their room, thinking "How can anything happen to them in the middle of a big, well-run place like this?"
