Things You Always Wanted To Ask Kate And Gerry McCann, But Couldn’t

Ben Delicious writes from London: As the search for Madeleine McCann, who had vanished in May 2007 in Portugal, continues, compliments of the British taxpayers, imagine if you could have put some seriously tough questions to Kate and Gerry McCann, to set the record straight on some of the troubling aspects of this whole affair that seems to be preoccupying a lot of people. What would you have asked the couple and what would they have told you?

Gripping stuff, this, eh? Much more exciting than a real interview.

Anyway, judging by the strong feelings Madeleine’s disappearance continues to stir among the masses, I suppose the first question to the McCanns would probably sound something like: ‘Have you had anything to do with your daughter going missing?

It’s a hard-hitting question reflecting the suspicions that some people harbour – good word ‘harbour’ when used in this context – about the McCanns having had something to do with their daughter disappearing from their holiday apartment in Algarve that evening.

Now, I’m no psychic but I guess Kate McCann would have responded like this: ‘We have no knowledge where Maddy is and we have nothing to do with her disappearance. We resent the idea that we could have been involved in this. No, we didn’t kill her and dispose of her body and no, we didn’t sell her to a wealthy couple in America for $350,000, to supposedly pay off Gary’s gambling debts that some people have been saying.’

The next question might have been this: ‘Why did you leave your small children alone in your apartment, even though you were offered the services of a nanny?’

Before we hear the imaginary answer, I’d like to point out that it’s a killer question. Because no proper answer to that exists, to be honest.

Anyway, I suspect Kate would have said something along the following lines: ‘We didn’t hire a nanny because the children would not have liked a total stranger to be with them in their room. We were dining with our friends, a mere 100 yards from the building, and I was watching the entrance all the time. It’s not like we were somewhere far away. You can’t really say that we had abandoned our children. We were there for them.’

It’s a weak answer, by all standards, but hey, everyone’s entitled to their own opinion.

Another tough question could have sounded like: ‘Why were you so surprised that the Portuguese police made you prime suspects at some point of their investigation, considering that you left your children alone and that no sightings of any suspicious people in the area were provided?’

Another tough one. I suspect Gary would have answered this one. ‘We were appalled to think that anyone could suspect us of any involvement in Maddy’s disappearance,’ he might have said, frowning. ‘Imagine, your daughter vanishes, you’re devastated and then you have to go through the indignity of undergoing questioning, as if you’ve had something to do with it.’

And that sort of makes sense, if you think about it. No one likes to be suspected by the cops of anything, especially kidnapping your own kid. But then again, not that many people in Portugal leave their small children all by themselves, to go out and party. Although I hear that on some council estates in Britain this is becoming very popular among liberated single mothers.

But then another killer question comes up: ‘Did you realise that the Portuguese authorities could have prosecuted you for child neglect and that the social services in Britain could have taken your two remaining children from you and put them into care for leaving them alone?’

This one is for Kate. So she would have probably said: ‘We never thought about prosecution. We didn’t consider ourselves to be neglecting our children. We love our children. We would never hurt them or cause them any suffering. Why would anyone want to take them away from us?’

Not a great answer, to be honest, but then what else can she say? That she neglected her kids and didn’t give a damn? Still, it would have been nice to know how is it that they got away with it, considering that in Portugal the law comes hard on you if you leave your kids on their own. But as there would be no chance of getting any answer to that from the McCanns, even in an imaginary interview, we’d better skip that.

But the next question is a toughie as well: ‘Do you blame yourselves for your daughter’s disappearance?’

I imagine that Gary would answer that one. ‘Some people may think what they wish, accusing us of leaving our children. But all we want is to get our daughter back. And we won’t rest until we find her.’

Clever answer, that. Refusing to accept any blame and yet stressing that they are devoted to continuing looking for their daughter.

Then comes the cynical question: ‘Some people say that you have turned yourselves into celebrities, jetting around the world, raising money to fund the search for your daughter. Some even say that you do it, even though you’re pretty sure that she’s dead. And some even hint that you know perfectly well that she’s dead. What do you say to that?’

‘We are only doing it for Maddy,’ Kate would reply. ‘It’s got nothing to do with celebrity. We are acting on behalf of all parents who have lost their children. We give them hope that they missing children are still alive.’

Good answer, that. Sort of makes you feel embarrassed to question the motives of the couple.

Then the next question: ‘Is it true, Kate, that you started a diary on the day after Madeleine’s disappearance? Sounds a bit creepy, if you ask me. What do you say to that?’

And Kate would look with that devastated look of hers and say: ‘I wanted to keep my sanity intact. The diary was a good distraction for me. It helped me to forget the pain.’

Well, whatever anyone thinks of that answer, I still think it’s spooky to start a diary in such a situation. And to use it later as a basis for a book.

Finally, the last question would probably be about the backers who help the McCanns to raise money and do their PR. ‘So who are the people, guys, who help you continue your search for Maddy? Are there any well-known names among them?’

Silence would probably initially greet this question. And then Kate would say: ‘They are all good people. We could not have done it without them.’

And there you have. Even after all those tough questions and answers to them we’re none the wiser. And will probably never be. Although, as they say, no secret remains a secret for ever. So there’s still a chance that we might one day find out what had actually happened.

Good post ... Exactly how I would imagine them to reply! I would like to ask them why they take no responsibility for their daughters disappearance?!

Quite so.

If she was abducted, their lack of care I (some might call it neglect or abandonment) facilitated that otherwise highly unlikely scenario, so they were partly responsible (and partly irresponsible).

If she was not abducted, then it would seem patent that they were wholly responsible (or again, depending upon how one looks at it, irresponsible).

Agreed, either way they are somewhat responsible.

Q1 If Madeleine and Amelie were the same size and wore each others clothes then why did you need to identical pairs of the pyjamas Madeleine was wearing on the night she disappeared, but in different sizes.

Q2 How old was Madeleine when the picture was taken which was the most recognised one. And why did you release such an old photograph and not an up to date one. How many years/months old was this photograph.

I would like to ask Gerry McCann why, on his visit to Washinton shortly after Madeleine "disappeared", he didn't contact Pat Brown a well known profiler, for help in locating his daughter instead of having his picture taken outside the White House? My question assumes, of course, that he had (or has) the slightest interest in finding his daughter.

What will you do when your money runs out and you can't afford to sue people?

In hindsight, do you now wish that you had just told the truth from the beginning? All this would have been behind you now.

Do either of you have the slightest twinge of conscience when you consider the effects of your continuing attacks on Dr Amaral are having, after all he was just doing his job trying to discover the whereabouts of your daughter who went missing whilst under your responsibility and the true reason for her disappearance?

What was the bucket and spade, and the suitcase collection all about?

Why do you claim that on the afternoon you took the children for ice-creams on the beach, Madeleine requested to return to the creche for the 'last hour and a half', yet she was booked back in at 2.30pm not at 4pm?

Why do you claim that you nearly didn't go out for dinner on May 3rd, or considered taking the children to the Millennium restaurant because you feared you wouldn't get a table at the Tapas restuarant, when you knew you had a table pre-booked for 8.30pm every evening?

Why do you claim that Madeleine's question 'where were you when me and Sean cried?' wouldn't have even registered had she not been 'abducted' yet FP claims that KM was angsting about that very question before Madeleine vanished?

Why did Brian Kennedy visit the Smith family in Ireland?

When exactly did KM wash the stain from Madeleine's PJ top?

What exactly happened in 5a between 5.30pm and 8.30pm on May 3rd?

I often wonder and would ask Gerry and Kate how they and their extended family can bare not only dealing with the loss of Madeleine but also dealing with the continued internet campaigning to insinuate that they either killed their child or unintentionally caused her death or concealed her body and disposed of her and faked an abduction.
And have gerry and kate told their parents that Madeleine is dead and that they have faked an abduction or are they allowing their parents to still hope she will be found
