Reasons for Optimism or not

Post  MaryB on Thu 2 Feb - 13:17

By optimism I mean will this case be solved or not. Surely whatever stand you take, people hope that this case is solved finally and in a satisfactory way to get to the truth of what happened to Madeleine. I must say the waters seem from where I am at the moment very murky in that nothing is happening and it is difficult to see any end in sight. I can't say that I agree the tide is turning but that's only my opinion. I think with the postponement of the libel cases till April that isn't really good news at all. The only positive thing I can say is that it seems to me that there has been hardly any of the usual style of articles about the McCanns lately in the main newspapers. I think it is quite possible they will win there case and silence people who question their version of events.

IMO they will never silence people. People like Mr. Amaral for example or Pat Brown or Tony Bennett or bloggers like Himself or Blacksmith and others don't just fade away or allow themselves to be intimidated into silence. There's an investigative review being carried out by Scotland Yard. One hears nothing. Although this is typically the way that Scotland Yard operate, it does leave the stage free for speculation and cover-up or whitewash theorists. It's quite possible that they will win the case against Amaral, but this will not stop him taking it to the next stage. Tony Bennett could very well lose his contempt case and be sued by the McCanns, but IMO this will not shut him up either. I have a feeling that the McCann-Carter Ruck activities are increasingly being seen with some consternation in some important quarters as a very real threat to freedom of expression and misuse of the libel laws. The more they carry on threatening and suing, the greater that consternation will grow, until it encompasses a body of mainstream opinion and action is taken to put an end to it. Therefore I see every reason to be optimistic that the case of Madeleine's disappearance will eventually be solved and indeed, I personally think that it will be solved sooner than anyone dares to hope at the present time.

Re your last sentence, I do so hope that you are right. This needs to be resolved so that this little girl who her parents had such high disregard for can be given the peace she deserves.

My reason for being optimistic is that I can't think of a reason not to be.

Fantastic Post T4two!

A lot has changed since Gordon Brown and Clarence Mitchell helped prop up the McCann circus, and Rupert Murdoch reigned supreme.

The Met's reputation has taken a severe battering and heads have rolled from the top on down, and dodgy practices are being exposed regularly. These are turbulent times for both the press and the police, and I'll wager loyalties are changing behind the scenes as some are scapegoated, whilst others skate on.

I hold out hope that this odious couple will be exposed from a direction they did not see coming, and I actually feel a tad optimistic these days... which is most unusual for me where this case is concerned.

My feelings lean towards frustration and disbelief rather than optimism, but I'm always a glass half empty sort of person.

My reason for optimism is purely that surely not everyone in politics, the judiciary and crime fighting is corrupt.
