Morning Cass.....the McCanns are also selective as to which photos appear in the Press. Luckily we have Youtube to thank for showing the "other side"
of the McCanns.

There's that 'Happy Talking' video!

Thanks AnnaEsse.......a picture paints a thousand words.

@ kathybelle

The opening sentence of a book I read a long time ago by Bryan Forbes (he was a British fim Actor and Director) was "Grief is a form of self pity" and when
you think about it , it is.

Could someone be goading a certain Mr Desmond here I wonder??

Morning Lillyofthevalley........I suspect some of it is out of disdain because Desmond made his money from "Adult" Magazines. However, he was right to
criticise the PCC, at the Meeting where Max Mosely and Gerry McCann complained about the reporting of the Press, the PCC seemed indifferent and
the fact that one of the Members is/was a Newspaper Editor would hardly give the PCC credibility.

Panda and Morning to you too,
Yes there seems to be alot of dislike for Desmond because of how he has made his money,( I used tobe one of them) Im pleased with what Ive seen of Desmond in the interviewing on the Leveson fiasco show and its totaly changed my attitude of this guy, standing upto Leveson & co.

IMO its going tobe the Express that is going to break ranks and turn on the McCanns as soon as the time is right and how Desmond spoke recently I dont think that will be long either, they will know that the majority of the UK think there is something fishy with this whole case.

I was thinking of starting a new thread saying is it worth us posters sending a few supporting e-mails to the Express supporting Desmond theory that the Mcs love/hate of the press and using them to their advantage when it was needed.

Actually, it"s very good.....I can"t even draw a square. You need a scythe though , it looks like like a lamp post he is holding and needs to slow down a bit. Is it all your own work?

Not a fan of these people by the remotest stretch of the imagination - far from it - but reading much into (literally) a snapshot in time goes against the grain.

A pall bearer at my Mother In Law's funeral inadvertently tripped over one of those flower receptacles with a metal cover while helping move the coffin to her designated grave. Several people laughed as a natural human reaction. Obviously dour mode was immediately resumed.

I`m glad you brought this up because I always knew that laughter was because of a lose balloon that no one could control - there are other pictures somewhere of what`s going on just before, and indeed it looks like one of those `hysterical` moments when sadness polarises into giggles. I worked in a Funeral Directors and the slightest diversion from the reality of the occasion can cause this to happen. However I wouldn`t go along with this explanation for GMs balcony laugh.

Just trying to keep things balanced.

The press always shoot lots of photos in quick succession so yes it is not unusual for all sorts of facial expressions and grimaces to appear in a series of photographs shot in this fashion. Therefore the laughing could indeed have been a momentary thing. However Photographs are then selected by the editor to compliment the story, i.e. sad, glum or distraught for grieving, smiling, laughing for happy etc. You can always tell the newspaper's attitude from whether the accompanying photograph is 'flattering' or 'unflattering'. IMO it is very significant that The Australian has deliberately decided to select and use a photograph conveying the happiness of the grieving parents. It compliments the story inasmuch as the story is about Desmond's testimony at the inquiry where he maintains that the McCanns were 'happy' to let the many stories run which were appearing about them at that time. This is then The Australian supporting Desmond against the McCanns if you like. Interesting because The Australian is part of the Murdoch empire. Significant because it's the first English language newspaper to print anything 'unflattering' about the McCanns for a very long time.

Can we expect a 'wind of change' developing within
the Murdoch empire? New balls please!

I can't do a link to the original full article because it asks for a login/subscription.
But it does appear fully on Google News (madeleine mccann search terms, sorted by date) but doesn't have the 'laughing' photo on it - but there is a much more sober-looking one.

the birthday pictures

Post  amber on Sun 15 Jan - 14:16

it wouldn't be so bad if there were just the one snap of them. If you look on Pamalams site on the Madeleines 4th Birthday you will see 13 snaps one after the other of the grieving parents walking out of church and down the path laughing merrily all the way accepting flowers and gifts.

I'm not sure but I think they were trying out the royal walk, if they hadn't been made arguidos they would have done the royal wave on their way home to Rothley.
Just think if they had had no need to slink back home then Mr Smith would never have seen Gerry carrying a baby in that manner and Mr Smith wouldn't have put two and two together - shame eh

Hi Amber, if it wasn"t for the Fund so hurriedly set up , they would have been back on Rothley within a month. They abused all the sympathy and help
from the Portuges people living in PDL and Jane Hill of the BBC and Sandra Felquiras are the only 2 Interviewees to ask direct questions.

Money certainly made their World go around and if any decent British Newspaper investigated the Fund, the McCanns would by charged with Fraud.
