NOTW Publishes extracts from Kates diary

Post  Panda on Thu 15 Dec - 13:05

This has been copied from mccanfiles and suggests Kate did not know the diary was to be published?


also, I have copied part of the Gordon Brown influence which is interesting.


Kate's
Diary



On 14 September 2008, the News of the World published extracts from 'Kate's
Diary'. The newspaper claimed that the 135-page 'journal', written on an A4 pad,
had been passed to them by a Portuguese reporter.


When it became apparent that Kate had not given authorisation for its
release, the online article was instantly removed. Both The Sun and the News of
the World published apologies and made an undisclosed payment to Madeleine's
Fund.

Portugal's best-selling daily newspaper 'Correio da Manhã' had already
serialised extracts from the diary during July 2008 without comment from the
McCanns.

Revelations
Maddie's mother's notes prove Gonçalo Amaral right

26 July 2008
Thanks to 'astro' for
translation


The English prime minister called the couple directly
and the British diplomacy took care of the travelling


"To increase the political pressure". The phrase, by Kate
McCann, written among the notes that were found in her house and which the
Polícia Judiciária (PJ) had apprehended, is clear about the manner in which
Maddie's parents intended to manage their daughter's disappearance, bringing it
into the press' first pages and turning it into a case with political
outlines.

On the morning of the 23rd of May 2007 (twenty days after
Maddie's disappearance), before they left for the Sanctuary of Fátima, Kate and
Gerry left Gordon Brown a message. Maddie's mother describes it as a form of
"raising the political pressure" and reveals that the present Prime Minister –
at that date, he was not in functions but had already been confirmed as Tony
Blair's successor – answered her only three hours later. He spoke with Gerry,
was "very sympathetic and gave strength", tells Kate, who describes the visit to
the catholic sanctuary as overwhelming, potent and emotional.

On the same
day in the afternoon, Gordon Brown called Maddie's parents again. Kate's
notebooks do not report the conversation but one is able to understand that the
purpose was to create political pressure, forcing the PJ to act
swiftly.

Today, at more than a year's distance from the child's
disappearance and after the case has been archived, Kate's notes expose the
pressures that were reported by the former coordinator of the case, Gonçalo
Amaral, who from the moment when he was removed from the investigation, realised
that the process would not produce an accusation.

With an investigation
that was initially inclined towards the abduction theory, partly forced by the
McCanns, the evidence of the pressures by the couple also explains the British
press' posture in the coverage of the case, mainly from the moment when
Madeleine's parents went from victims to suspects and arguidos. With the British
prime minister himself supporting the McCanns, through direct and frequent phone
calls that are revealed by Kate, it became almost impossible for the English
government to help an investigation that had indicated the parents as
guilty.

Apart from the contacts with Gordon Brown, Kate's
notebooks reveal other important allies. From the hiring of Clarence Mitchell,
who at that point in time worked for the government, as an assistant, until the
conversations with the wife of Tony Blair, the former British Prime
Minister.

Mitchell actually had a pivotal role in the propaganda machine
that was built by the McCanns within a few days, and which counted on the great
help from the British diplomacy in all the trips that were carried out by Kate
and Gerry.

The first and most media-exposed [trip] – to Rome, to be
received by Pope Benedict XVI – was suggested by the assistant, on the 27th of
May, after speaking to Francis Campbell, the British ambassador at the Vatican.
"Rome is already preparing itself", Kate wrote, anticipating that visit as what
would become the "main" news on that day. One day later, the visit and the
audience with the Pope were already confirmed, with a program that was prepared
in a detailed manner.

On the 30th of May, after leaving the British
consulate in Rome, Kate and Gerry, accompanied by the ambassador, made a
strategic stop "for the photographers to catch an image looking at the
Basilica", and continued towards the Vatican, where they spent a few minutes
with Benedict XVI. A moment that was described as very emotional, positive and
important, and that summoned "loads of" journalists and photographers, which is
definitely a concern that is always present with the couple.

After Rome, Madrid, Berlin and Morocco followed, trips with
the purpose of publicising Madeleine's face and which always relied on passages
through consulates or receptions by British ambassadors and political
representatives of the corresponding countries.

According to Kate's
notes, the days started or ended with meetings, phone calls and emails. Cherie
Blair, the wife of Tony Blair, Gordon Brown's predecessor, was one of Kate's
contacts, as demonstrated by the reports of the 17th of July. Before Kate gives
Sky News an interview, she speaks with Cherie, who agrees to make a 20 second
videoclip about Maddie for the English channel. On that same day, Blair himself
pledges assistance and makes himself available for whatever is
needed.

Kate's
notes:


"Left a message for Gordon Brown to call us in
order to increase the political pressure" – Kate McCann, 23rd of
May

"Gordon Brown called and spoke with Gerry – very sympathetic and gave
strength. Somewhat emotive feeling afterwards" – Kate McCann, 23rd of
May

"Clarence spoke to us about a possible visit to the Vatican. Rome is
already preparing itself. Francis Campbell was spoken to" – Kate McCann, 27th of
May
……………………….

The ambassador's
solidarity


On the 4th [of May], only hours after
the alert of Madeleine's disappearance was given, Kate wrote in her notes that
the English ambassador, John Buck, had been in the apartment offering them his
solidarity. She also noted the presence of two employees from the consulate and
stressed the strong presence of the media on location. "There is news appearing
in the United Kingdom", Maddie's mother remembered, also noting the "worrying"
and "boring" presence of Yvone, the English social security technician who tried
to understand whether there was anything in the family's life that might explain
the child's absence.

It should be referred that on that very same day,
the ambassador met with senior officials from the PJ to understand the outlines
of the case.

…………………………..

The
news

Abduction theory – On the first days after
Maddie's disappearance, on the 3rd of May 2007, the abduction theory was the
only one that was mentioned in the news. "Give back our Madeleine", the parents
appealed, not admitting any other possibility.

Visit to Fátima
Twenty days after Maddie's disappearance, the McCann couple went to pray at the
Sanctuary of Fátima. But before that, they called Gordon Brown in order to
increase the political pressure.

Brown's pressure – Only five
days after the McCanns' contact with the British prime minister, Gordon Brown's
pressures on Portugal because of the Maddie case were already
known.

McCanns at the Vatican - The trip to the Vatican and the
audience with Pope Benedict XVI were suggested by advisor Clarence Mitchell, who
mobilised British diplomacy in order to take the McCanns to Rome.

Notebooks of Maddie's mother reveal tactics with the British
press

27 July 2008

Kate and Gerry McCann have controlled the media reporting
their daughter's disappearance. In order not to be criticised by the British
Press, Madeleine McCann's parents offered photoshoots, some of them during their
usual morning walks – which were apparently routine but turned out to be
pre-arranged, as Kate's personal notes reveal.

Manhã' this Sunday

Re: NOTW Publishes extracts from Kates diary

I wonder if Kate plans to reveal the diary herself as part of Maddie Part II; my Further Version of the Truth?

I thought the diary was kept so that Maddie, Sean and Amelie could read up on what REALLY went down but seemed rather obvious to be an alibi for what they did from before May 3 to long afterwards. Why on earth as arguidos would you keep that sort of record knowing it could be seized at any moment, if you didn't intend it to be read and understood as the World According to Kate -I guess at the time she was advised to keep it - either by Auntie Phil as she suggested at one point or the psychiatrist or whatever, as she suggested at another, it was meant to be therapeutic and she possibly didn't know they were under suspicion, however, given the misstatements, changed stories etc you'd suppose they knew they were potentially in a heap of trouble and as such, it did seem to be sort of a catalog of what they wanted people to think or know.

I think we'll see it published at some point with serious edits (you won't find Rome is Preparing Itself! as one of the inserts I'm thinking) and sold on Amazon...
