Spinning in the wind/Blacksmith

Spinning in the wind



The shovels and pulleys came out in the middle of the night, Kate McCann grasped her crucifix tight to her chest and Lo! The Coffin is among ye. Team McCann, flyblown and rotted, silent for so many months, climbs out of the grave and crawls into behind-the-scenes action.

Now Scotland Yard are not going to talk to anyone about the details of the review, any more than Leicester police have after four and a half years; travel details and numbers, yes, but operational stuff, not a chance. So the stuff from Brunt and others was fiction and if the police didn’t give them a nod or a steer—and, we repeat, they didn’t—then it could only have been the Team.

And this is where it gets interesting. The only way we’re going to know which way the review is heading is via the parents. Sooner or later they will get what they think is reliable information about the inquiry’s direction and they’ll start to spin pre-emptively—smily spin and “looking forward to the conclusions” and we’ll assume they’re home and dry; otherwise we’ll watch them wriggle while their lawyers attempt to negotiate. But that should be a long way down the road, shouldn’t it? Not while the Yard are still doing the fieldwork.

But the Team came out spinning about the police trips to Spain this month, and there wasn’t a smile to be seen. Two hundred and forty three Google entries showing that the stuff had been planted pre-emptively all over the place, all because the word Barcelona had been mentioned. And, just in case anyone thinks it was a one off, back they came with further supposed detail a few days ago, this time bringing in Goatherd Edgar. Why is it so important to provide a fictitious reason for the Yard’s presence in Spain?

Unlike 2007, when so many of the melodramatic features of the case emerged from the parents’ weird and distorted imaginations, Gerry really is in the shadows now and doesn’t know who the Team can trust. James Murray of the Express, who helped to embroider the latest version of the Spanish trip, is as close to Amaral as he is to the parents and his unpredictable master hasn’t forgotten that half a million libel settlement. And—”sooner or later they will get what they think is reliable information”—did someone at the Yard deliberately tempt the McCanns,to see, just like us, which way they would spin in the wind?

Plenty more jockeying for position to come.

Thank you Annabel.

I think Blacksmith is right on the money with this.

Pre-emptive spinning - the name of the game.
And it's a delicious thought that they may have been fed the snippet of the Met's travel plans to see how they'd run with it.
Well nature abhors a vacuum and so do the McCanns ......
And they didn't disappoint - to borrow from an old Dean Friedman song:

"We can thank our lucky stars that they're not as smart as they'd like to think they are ..."

Yeh,he's spot on about the 'spinning',though we have known from the early days about their pre emptive strikes and 'soundbites'.

Anyone still want to ask why an innocent couple should need to go to such lengths to protect their position ?

They clearly still feel threatened which means they must believe they can be found out,thats good news.

Many thanks for Blacksmith's latest - I do so love these eye openers. For me he seems to see things for what they really are.

Yes I know the long standing members have seen the spinning for some time but I never thought about the angle that SY may be testing the reaction to a morsel deliberately dropped.

Thanks Annabel, a very good article and interesting bit about James Murray, I would like to think that the Press are playing games with the McCanns
but they have been a huge Factor in keeping the McCanns in the News and being so pro.

As I said, if SY did go to Spain I bet it was to interview Metodo 3 and this is where the unravelling starts. It was Brian Kennedy who hired them, paid them
and the fund supposedly invoiced Kennedy instead of Metodo direct, which is very suspicious. In fact, Metodo 3 were interviewed by ABC es and said
they never received the money quoted in the British Press. The Fund paid Halligen £300,000, again on the sayso of Kennedy and Clarence was quick to
play it down when Halligen was arrested and a Reporter asked about the Fund paying so much, he said the matter was closed.

Kennedy is in a lot of trouble for reneging on a loan undertaking of something like £120 million with RBS and a Foreign Bank for £7 million , I would say this is
the reason for going to Spain....if they did.!!
