Post  MaryB on Sat 12 May - 17:59

If a Government can be persuaded to open a review. Could a policeforce be persuaded to reach a certain conclusion.

Hi MaryB, if you are suggesting Portugal I would say NO, the PJ will be delighted after all the stick they have taken from the McCanns and British Press
if no new leads are found.

I wasn't suggesting Portugal. I like to think they are not yet engulfed in this politican and British media stuff. But I find it quite frightening that a newspaper can persuade a government to make a certain decision to open a review into a certain case especially when that newspaper has serialisation rights for a sum of half a million pounds regarding a book about the case. Whose interests exactly were being served. And where will it all end.

Possibly, but not on this occasion.

lets not forget though, this revelation about the media's involvement in pressurising the Government over this case has only just come to light. It throws a whole new slant on things and could blow up in their faces.

SY already has. Listen carefully to Redwood - "it was a stranger abduction." The parents aren't in the frame, end of.

The trouble with listening is that we all hear different things ..................... And one has, in any event, to take it "in the round" rather than one soundbite stripped of context.

And then there is the readily apparent change in the public mood, with more and more people openly voicing doubts about Healy & McCann, plus a few less than guarded snippets in our previously slavishly compliant Press.
