Vigil for missing children outside City Hall as Metropolitan Police Authority meets

Vigil for missing children outside City Hall as Metropolitan Police Authority meets

The Metropolitan Police Authority meets tomorrow at City Hall for the first time since the Prime Minister instructed/encouraged/invited/asked the Commissioner to consider a review of the Madeleine McCann case. And outside there will be a vigil to remember all missing children attended by relatives and campaigners. Several MPA members (including Jenny Jones AM and Jennette Arnold AM) have already announced they will be joining them.

I am sure that those campaigners and relatives will be asking whether the cases in which they are concerned can be reviewed by the Metropolitan Police in the same way that the Madeleine McCann case is to be. And this is hardly surprising.

The Commissioner will no doubt tonight be polishing up his answers as to why he made the operational decision (without being pressurised by a politician, of course) that the McCann case should be reviewed and whether the same factors will apply to the other cases.

He will also no doubt remind the Authority that the Home Office has offered to pay for the costs of the investigation. This is, I am sure, a welcome contribution to the Met’s budget, but will this cover only the additional costs of the investigation or will it cover the costs of the salaries of the detectives engaged in the review and, if so, where will the replacement detectives be found to cover the work that those detectives would otherwise have done?

And was this offer of financial assistance a factor in the operational decision that the Commissioner made to have this review? And, if it was a factor, does the offer to pay guarantee anyone else a Metropolitan Police case review? Might be a nice little earner.

I am sure the Commissioner has also given thought to what will happen after the review has been concluded. Will the review be shared with the McCann’s? And, if not, what is the purpose of the review? I am confident that all will be made clear tomorrow.

I do feel that this is a mini protest at the way the met have treated one missing child differently from ALL the other missing children.

Also I think that Kate McCann writing this book may off gained some sympathy from people reading it but I also think that she has lost sympathy from people in other quarters.


Daniel Entwistle....went missing 3rd may 2003....august 2003 .....3 months later....the search had been disbanded.....so Kate and Gerry McCann....stop being so damn selfish, count yourself lucky that first off All...the PJ spent the best part off a year and put everything into finding out what happened to your daughter and count yourself lucky that people felt sorry for you and gave their hard earned cash into hoping that Madeleine would be found and count yourself lucky that these selfless people have paid money from their wages to pay for your top notch lawyers to keep you out off jail.

The McCanns have played a very clever game. Knowing that the investigation was going on behind the scenes they made a very public play display of seeking a review and investigation and made the public believe all this was for their benefit. Now there is a public revolt against the investigation and even the forum members who have long been awaiting British police action are now confused and not supportive.

It doesn't matter much, though: What the McCanns say and what we the public think doesn't change the fact that SY are now involved nor will it affect the outcome.

Why are they asking for signatures , that what I don't understand ...what's the point....they got their review albeit not the one they wanted, but they got it.



Their should be a message on Facebook from the mccanns stating.....thankyou all for signing the petition, due to your hard work we have got the review we have been striving for...and close the online petition .

From what I know it's not official there's going to be a review. We still have to wait to have it confirmed.
