Quote of the Day: George Tynedale, Sunday Mercury

THE Portuguese police are to close down their inconclusive investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

The three year-old’s parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, are now demanding that their status as official suspects in the case should be removed.

They have let it be known that they regard the prospect of spending the rest of their lives as arguidos is “immoral and inhumane”.

Which is quite right if they are guilty of no crime.

But they will forever remain guilty of leaving their daughter along with their two even younger children, Sean and Amelie, alone in a holiday apartment while they went out boozing.

So which tag do the McCann’s wish to carry with them into the future? Careless or irresponsible or just downright neglectful?
