Gerry doesn't have a problem with theories.

I don’t have a problem [with] somebody purporting a theory, writing fiction, [or making] suggestions, but clearly we’ve got to a stage where substandard reporting with sources that are unnamed, made-up, non-verifiable, are a day-by-day occurrence.”

So presumably there's no danger of getting Carter Rucked for discussing theoretically whether or not they were involved in Madeleine's disappearance?

"I don’t have a problem [with] somebody purporting a theory"

Patently, Gerald - otherwise you might be accused of hypocrisy.

For a bloke who doesn't mind theories, he spends a hell of a lot of time, and other people's money, trying to ban the books which contain them ......

How can someone 'purport,' a theory? I think Gerry's got the wrong verb there, but not for the first time has he shown his strange use of the English language.

Somebody implying a theory? No. Someone meaning a theory? No. Someone intending a theory? No!

Anybody who can write "Summative Overview" instead of "Summary" is a poor communicator and someone who thinks that convoluting (or, as some might think, mangling) what are essentially simple concepts is perhaps mistakenly trying to impress "ordinary" folk.

He uses words to impress us ( I'm a Dr and I use big words) but to me it makes him look stupid

He sounds like my granny who used to buy a cartoon of milk and her favourite TV programme was Dr Finlay's Scrapbook.

Sentences using purport:

Does this game purport to be social commentary on the current immigration situation in the usa?
Purports to confer a benefit on the third party.
I do not purport to be any kind of expert on austin music.
Here, therefore, deconstruction is not, cannot purport to be, an alternative to marxism.
To the same purport as the preceding, in reference to the lands of thos.
The town clerk shall make known the purport of this standing order to every candidate.
Purport to represent the community.
The pills also purport to stimulate the metabolism, breaking down fat.
So that e'en god must guess from sounds so hoarse their true purport.
Purporting to comply with the voluntary ban were being scrupulous in doing so.
It may not be professional journalism, but it does n't purport to be.

And another couple of examples example!

Gerry McCann, purporting to be a caring parent.
Gerry McCann, purporting to be a native English speaker.

Winterballs, I do hope anyone been Carter Rucked, use this little snippet of Gerry's against them, imo Gerry has played a blinder stating this.

Perhaps he meant 'positing' a theory, rather than 'purporting' a theory.

Kate's use of English isn't much better - What exactly is 'an account' of the truth?

Truth is not a word that can be used with any conviction in connection with Healy and McCann.

Conviction, however, has many meanings ...............

Or maybe he meant 'propounding,' a theory. He possibly did get the first letter right!

Then he goes on about Dr Amaral's 'thesis.' Have you ever heard of a police officer having a 'thesis,' about a suspect or a crime? Me neither! Theory yes; thesis no!

I was once described by a journalist as 'a small dark-haired woman with strong convictions.'
