The McCanns and The Polygraph

Daily Mirror, 19 September 2011
The Kate Prout murder case has thrown up a number of interesting issues: the use of sniffer dogs and the successful conviction of Adrian Prout, without a body being discovered, are two. The third issue of interest is the failure of Mr Prout to pass a Polygraph test. An act which led ultimately to his confession to the murder of his wife.

New readers to the site may be interested to know that back in September 2007 the McCanns, as part of their PR 'fight back' against the action of the Portuguese police in making them arguidos, made it known - albeit through the inevitable use of their proxy 'friend of the family'/'source' - that they would be willing to take a lie detector test to clear their names.

"They have said all along that they want to co-operate fully with the Portuguese police," the anonymous 'friend' assured us comfortingly, adding that they had "received no such request from the Portuguese authorities". Just so we could be clear when apportioning blame.

Once the frantic headlines, such as 'McCANNS: WE'LL TAKE LIE TEST', had been successfully embedded into the nation's newsstands, Clarence Mitchell, the McCanns spokesperson, stepped forward to pour cold water on the idea. Principally on the grounds that such 'evidence' was not admissible in a Portuguese court.

Curses on those 'bumbling' Portuguese authorities! Not only had they been so lax as to make no request for the McCanns to take a lie detector test, it wasn't even admissible in their courts! What were they playing about at? Not asking for something that they couldn't even use anyway! Unbelievable!

And so the Portuguese authorities got a slippery double beating, for what was actually no story in the first place. Ahhh, the beauty of PR, media control and proxies!

And there the matter lay...

Until November, of the same year, when a "shocked" Don Cargill, chairman of the British And European Polygraph Association, spoke to the Sunday Express. He revealed that he had spoken to "the McCanns' people", with regard to taking a lie detector test, and they had come back "with a list of conditions that would have been impossible to satisfy".

Mr Cargill said: "Kate said she'd take it to prove her innocence but in reality, she wasn't willing. I was dumbfounded, to tell the truth."

The accompanying headlines, such as 'KATE REFUSES LIE TEST', were clearly unhelpful and so, as usual, Clarence Mitchell was afforded the final word on the subject: "Gerry and Kate don't need to do one as they are telling the truth."

So there we had it. The Oracle had spoken and we could all go to bed happy.

Quote: ' as usual, Clarence Mitchell was afforded the final word on the subject: "Gerry and Kate don't need to do one as they are telling the truth."'

So Clarence thinks only liars take a lie detector test, not those who are telling the truth? And there was I thinking that it would be the people telling the truth who'd be desperate to take the test, while the liars would run away as fast as their legs could carry them!

Seems Clarence is as good at putting his foot in it as the McCanns themselves!

I think all the Tapas 9 people should be invited to take a lie detector test, and since obviously they've all told the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, it would be great to see them pass the test with flying colours and silence the doubters once and for all.

There's the proof...no test forthcoming...they are liars ...

qed

The papers would have sold a lot if they had have taken a test. The McCann's must have a lot of flying pigs on their farm.

I literally nearly spat my tea out at that. They act as if they are beyond questioning!

The seriously believe that they are above any questioning. It's the old question - What's the difference between Gerry McCann and God. Answer - God doesn't think he's Gerry McCann.
