He's just saying that many McCann supporters are publicly stating as fact that it is Amaral - and not the McCanns - who asked the other side to agree to an out-of-court settlement. Blacksmith seems to believe that official sources will eventually reveal who did the asking, and that if the McCanns are shown to be the ones who asked Amaral to settle, their supporters will be exposed as liars or as people who have been lied to.
Blacksmith seems pretty confident that it was the McCanns who asked Amaral for the out-of-court settlement, as he's offering to shut up forever if that's not the case. Some people might even call this a win-win situation...
That is exactly how I read this article as well. He makes it very clear which side he believes and which side will have egg on its face once the truth is revealed.
I am surprised the issue is still in debate. CR in an affidavit in the TB trial (quoted on CMOMM) submitted a statement to the court:
"...the McCanns, via Isabel Duarte, wrote to Dr Amaral and to the Lisbon Civil Court, two weeks ahead of the final trial, asking for an adjournment"
Sharper than Blacksmith and more economical with words.
My opinion for what it is worth as already stated. Asking for the adjournment was a ploy. The main priority was to silence TB in the UK. Mission acomplished. Neither the McCanns, UK media or UK establishment care what happens in Porugal.
Then why ask for adjournment or to settle out of court if they (team McCann, UK media...etc) aren't bothered about what happens in PT, imo that is the problem they didn't want the Amaral case to go ahead because they are and do not want to show their ugly faces inside a Portuguese court, if anything I would say it was the Bennet case they weren't bothered about
