I'd like to add that I did not feel I had misquoted the leaflet when I referred to the statement about extradition lawyers being appointed 'Immediately M was reported missing' but used quotation my marks to highlight the term I was concerned about, i.e. 'immediately' which Mr Bennett has now conceded happened not immediately, but later.

Regarding the 'pact of silence' - As Mr Bennett has pointed out, it has been argued that what was actually said may have been mistranslated (and after all, would the Tapasniks really have said 'we have a pact of silence' even if they did make a pact of some sort - and I can quite imagine they did) and (for me) it makes more sense if they'd said, 'We have all agreed not to talk to the press about our business' or words to that effect... and that, in itself, could be argued to be a normal enough response when dealing with the press.

As for the six corpses tale - of course its nonsense and we all know this, but surely only if we absolutely know that Mrs McC has stated this should it be used to bolster the argument against abduction, which is why I was unhappy about its inclusion in the leaflet - the sources for this story were Aunty P, Susan H and the press. Unless we are scrupulous about having direct sources and are accurate in the points we make, we will not be taken seriously.

Thanks again to Mr Bennett - I don't doubt that his beliefs about what really happened to MMcC concur with my own and I wish him success in his current battles.

Quoting the McCann's spokespersons is a minefield. Certainly on the night of 3/4/ May 07, news was disseminated through friends and family who all had exactly the same story. The broken shutters, the non existent ledge and the front door 'hanging open'. Although one may argue it all came from the same source, i.e. either of the McCanns, this can never be proved.
The six corpses fall into the same category as do the twins' dirty nappies in the boot of the car.
This tactic served them extremely well and it was used over and over again. If a certain statement cannot be directly contributed to you, it can always have been misinterpreted.

But even so there are many provable statements, answers in interviews and shall we say a certain economy with the truth which can be proved.
In particular the Vanity Fair Interview is an excellent and well researched article - as far as I know it was not sold on (as often happens) to other magazines or newspapers at a later date, but that was the best they could hope for.
That interview was taped and transcribed, the slip-ups in that are many and irretrievable. They can be quoted since they have never been contested by the McCanns. Whether that would stand up in a court of law, I don't know.

Mitchell stated about that interview that it had been agreed it would all be off the record and 'we were caught by surprise'. Hmm.

Here is my favourite clip of a concerned father talking about having ignored the advice of police about publicity and in particular publicising the coloboma

'..... Whoever had taken the child now held a universally recognizable little girl.
Gerry understood that. But, he says, the iris “is Madeleine’s only true distinctive feature. Certainly we thought it was possible that this could potentially hurt her or”—he grimaces—“her abductor might do something to her eye.… But in terms of marketing, it was a good ploy.” unquote

'well, we don't think she has anything likes a coloboma'



You child is 5 days off her 4th birthday and you don't KNOW if your child has a sight problem .....


Come on, after 6 weeks you can tell if your child has an eye problem or did they just not care or was it just not there in the first place.



One minute Kate Mccann says she was an over Protective mother ...unless your on holiday off course...next minute she is saying she didn't think she had an eye defect.

What got me about the mega u-turn (the massive LOOK campaign at the start about the eye defect and then the barely noticable fleck) is that none of the mainstream media felt that it was worth mentioning.

Agreeing with you, Tigger. It's the direct stuff caught on camera or in writing that is so very useful. Like Kate's, 'What d'you mean you woke up...? ' (who said she woke up?) and Gerry's 'we didn't think we'd get into the Tapas that night, remember?' (despite having a block booking) that is so damning.

She has shown some very angry reactions, almost violent, what with her whooshing and kicking beds and bashing walls.

Why was Madeleine waking up a surprise to Kate? Wasn't there a "Star chart" in their kitchen relating to Madeleine staying in her own bed? Her waking up must have been an issue.

Vanity Fair article, January 2008, Gerry said the twins were on one bed and only Madeleine's blanket and soft toy were on the other. Will find link.

It wasn’t until Kate walked into the villa at 10 and felt a sickening breeze—the front window had been jimmied open—that she realized something terrible had happened. “The scene was stark,” Gerry tells me. On one bed the twins lay sleeping. In the next lay only the plush cat toy Madeleine was never without. That was when Kate came out screaming, “Madeleine has gone!”

Indeed, there was a 'star chart' on her kitchen fridge..
Which might suggest alternate meanings for Kates phrase such as 'what d'you mean you woke up.... as my specialty was anesthesia and thus the drugs I gave you should have zonked you out totally", which would have added to her surprise when they found her upon return to the apartment.

Post  Wintabells on Wed 31 Oct - 1:24

The puzzling thing for me about 'what d'you mean you woke up?' was that Gerry and Kate affected confusion about when it was that Madeleine and Sean had cried... Gerry said something like, 'was it when they were getting bathed?... or when they were being put to bed?' implying that somehow they weren't alone when this crying episode took place, and that it could have been at bath or bed time but neither Gerry nor Kate noticed because they're either stone deaf or someone else bathed and put the children to bed (which doesn't seem likely) but certainly not that they woke up and mum/dad weren't there.

Kate seems to have forgotten this when she talks about Madeleine's breezy aside that she and Sean had cried and wanted to know where Mum/dad were. The question she should have claimed she wished she'd asked was 'what d'you mean you cried? what was making you cry? was it, perchance, an abductor?'

Long time ago on this forum he posted his madeleine voice post.
I did tell him that i found it very creepy.......................
it is still a very wierd post for a mature man to post.......taking on the voice of a missing child to her parents.. shudders if not actually
no is fine
still find it very creepy and repulsive
So no admiring from me ....................imho.

Am I allowed to say I don't admire people who support child neglectors, especially when for reasons best known to the child neglectors, their child disappears never to be seen again?

I'm talking about people like yourself, who whole heartedly support the McCanns, which you have every right to do so, but hurl insults at those of us, who care about Madeleine and the way she was cruelly ousted from her siblings.

The facts speak for themselves, Kate and Gerry McCann perpetrated Madeleine's disappearance, whether she was abducted or not. People like yourself, have never followed the case and neither have you read the PJ files. Nothing you say makes any sense, I have asked you before, to show me why you believe the McCanns played no part in Madeleine's disappearance, given the fact they told the world and his wife, how they behaved on that so called family holiday. I'm still waiting for your answer.

Tony Bennett has done nothing to deserve the treatment he has received from the McCanns. He along with Goncalo Amaral, has done more to find out what happened to Madeleine, than her parents. I've read Tony Bennett's leaflets and I've read a booklet that he had printed, none of these items contained anything that wasn't in the PJ files. Tony Bennett has never accused the McCanns of killing Madeleine and he has always asked posters or people at his meetings, to only make constructive criticism about the McCanns.

I know this to be true, because I attended one of Tony Bennett's meetings in Nottingham and I used to be a member of a forum, that Tony Bennett is still a member of.

So instead of coming on to this forum, which is a pro Madeleine forum, bad mouthing those of us, including Tony Bennett and Goncalo Amaral who care about Madeleine. Go and find yourself a pro McCann forum, where you can badmouth the McCanns critics, till your heart is content.

I think there are still one or two pro McCann forums, however just be careful what you say, when you badmouth the critics. One pro McCann forum was closed down, because the McCann supporters made some unacceptable comments about the McCanns critics. Gerry McCann had threatened to close down every forum that contained criticism of he and his wife. I wonder how he felt, when he found out that it was a pro McCann forum that was closed down.

The crying story - although the papers didn't get it until September I believe - was very important to them, so important that they asked the Leicester liaison officer to impress the crying on the PJ once again, although it was already in their statements.
It changed a lot along the way, first Sean and Amelie, then Sean and Maddie and finally Maddie on her own.

But the throwaway line 'was it when you are getting bathed?' is reminiscent of the Gaspar statement, where the Gaspars were informed that the men bathed the children on these holidays.
TM stories are full of these nuggets of real information. As Loopadaloop said - why should waking up be such a big deal?

Gerry also says somewhere 'there was one night when she came through' - which again implies medication.

Iris - I think it was one of the documentaries, he (Gerry) was driving a car and being filmed as he spoke, it might help to narrow down the search for you.
