Madeleine McCann(The book) – it’s a PR nightmare

Post  Annabel on Sun 15 Jan - 10:13

Article from May 2011, never seen!

http://www.birdsontheblog.co.uk/madeleine-mccann-its-a-pr-nightmare/

Kate McCann, mother of missing littlie Madeleine McCann has released a book.

If you don’t know who she is, she’s the mother of the poor little thing that apparently went missing in Portugal in 2007. Her parents had left her and her twin siblings in the apartment while they went and had tapas.

Kate McCann tells us this is ‘the right thing to do’ having eschewed the resort babysitting service because she would be ‘checking on the kids every 15 minutes’

Of course, what parent hasn’t done this while on holiday?
Errr well me…

I’m not a well to do doctor, I’ve been a single parent, and I’ve saved the money to go on holiday.
There is not a cat in hell’s chance I would have left my child(ren) alone in an apartment while I partied with my friends.

I’m not the best mum in the world. I’m far from perfect (as @leighquantrill will tell you), but no way would I have left my children alone.

When you go on holiday as a parent you accept there are things you can’t do. Such as partying with your friends.

Mrs McCann has been doing the rounds of the news channels with her Diana-esque big eyes and claims of being persecuted.

I accept she was put through the mill. I don’t for one minute think she had anything to do with her daughter’s disappearance (apart from neglect).

But now we get “Maybe the twins were drugged” – ummm so if you thought that then where is the evidence you asked for them to be tested?

“I couldn’t make love to my husband” – do we care?

“I wonder now if someone looking at her in her Gap outfit was wanting her” – good soundbites for the book, but did you really think that?

I feel bad, because that little girl is still missing. I feel bad because I can have no sympathy for her parents.
YOU LEFT YOUR CHILDREN ALONE IN AN APARTMENT WHILE YOU HAD FUN WITH YOUR FRIENDS

People say she has no sympathy because she appears cold and not caring. No, she has very little sympathy because despite leaving her children alone while she partied she says “We have changed how people think”. As someone said on Twitter today “No Kate, some of us would never have left our children alone”.
I hope little Maddie is found.

But if and when she is I hope that the McCanns take responsibility for their part in this.

What do you think?

Thanks Annabel,,,,,,,an intelligent post.......Gerry's claim that "it felt like dining at the bottom of our Garden " is ridiculous.

And when the twins are old enough, they will be told that Kate and Gerry were dining in the restaurant next door!

Today the McCanns will join worshippers at their local Catholic church, despite Mr McCann admitting that over the months his belief in God has faltered. The couple have also told how Sean and Amelie had been talking about Madeleine.

Mr McCann said: ‘Sean talks all the time about finding Maddie and what he will do to the person who stole her.

‘They know they went to sleep and when they woke up she had disappeared. But they still don’t understand that somebody took her.

‘When they become aware of this I think they will want to know where we were. And we will have to explain to them that we were having dinner in the restaurant next door.’

The twins memory of their Sister Madeleine would have been short lived because they were barely 2 yrs old and Kate"s revelation that she bought Chistmas
presents for her and laid a place at the Table is really bizarre.

What really P***es me off though is her claim in the Mentorn Documentary where she claims she is working full time with Edgar and his Partner "doing the most important job of my life" in helping the search for Madeleine.

Well, the most important job of my life was and still is, being a mother!

They may have changed the way some people think, but it would be incredibly arrogant if Healy is suggesting they have had an influence on parents as a whole - by definition, responsible parents would not have behaved like this in the first instance. But if even a handful of other would be neglectors have repented, then at least some good has come out of it.

Clearly she thinks very highly of herself.



Oh, and it isn't just being a mother that is the work of a lifetime, don't forget us fathers - an increasing number of us (self included) took on the lion's share of care and, joyous task though it is, opportunities to "take one's eye off the ball" are rare as hen's teeth. Apologies for the mixed metaphors, but I do find the apocryphal men do (or don't do) this, women do (or don't do) that rather wearing at times.

household chores .....well some..... and even Grannies are involved in child minding.

Yes indeed - that's why I don't agree with the old stereotypes, although I read much that suggests many do like to prolong them!

But I'm biased as someone who has always done at least my fair agreed share of everything: It's for the parents/couple to decide for themselves given their circumstances.

That said, I suspect that Gerald still strongly believes in the pipe and slippers caveman approach ...............



PS: You won't be surprised to hear I don't do "status", "class" or any of that either. Very, very metro, moi!
