The Sun - Madeleine's room - same as six years ago

Post  Karen on Wed 1 May - 23:08

MADELEINE McCann's parents have revealed how they haven’t changed their missing girl's bedroom – nearly six years after she was abducted.

Her mother Kate said she seeks comfort at her village church in Rothley, Leicestershire - and in their daughter’s room.

She said: “I do have the key to our local church, but I don’t always need to go there. Sometimes I can go into Madeleine’s room and I don’t even have to talk - I can just think.”

“It’s as it was really - that’s her room.

“Sometimes people ask me if there will ever come a time when I change that room and it’s difficult because in your head that indicates moving on and I’m not there.”

The couple also told how they fear letting missing Madeleine's brother and sister stay away from home.

The McCanns said eight-year-old twins Sean and Amelie have not been allowed to sleep over at friends’ houses.






Missing ... Madeleine disappeared six years ago


Madeleine was three years old when she vanished from the family's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal on May 3 2007.

The youngster has never been found despite an international search led by British police.

And now mum Kate, speaking ahead of the sixth anniversary of Madeleine’s disappearance on Friday, has admitted she hardly lets twins Sean and Amelie out of sight.

Kate said: “They haven’t had any sleepovers with friends and I know that goes on a lot.

Madeleine McCann: Fresh appeal

KATE and Gerry McCann give interview to mark six years since their daughter vanished in Portugal


“It will get tougher obviously as they approach their teenage years and want that freedom – they’re still at that young age where they can’t really see it from a parent’s point of view.”

Sat beside Kate on ITV's Daybreak, husband Gerry said the issue was a “touchy subject” but Kate replied saying: “I’m getting a little bit better”.

She continued: “There is one potentially coming up soon and I’ve given my blessing.”






Praia da Luz ... apartment block where Madeleine vanished from in 2007


Gerry explained he believes the twins should have the same experiences as other children.

He said: “It’s really important Sean and Amelie get exposed to the same things that everyone else does - sometimes you've just got to stand back.”

“Amelie has even been into ski school for the day – it is hard letting go but you take all the precautions.”

The couple now believe they have more hope of finding Madeleine than at any other time in the six-year search.

Kate said: “The search is very much ongoing. Nothing is slowing down, if anything I feel it's escalating.

“We haven't lost hope, our hope isn't any less than it was after the first 24, 48 hours.”

Gerry added: “In some respects I think we're actually in a better position now in terms of working out what happened.”

I'm glad its still the same. Scotland Yard may need to search for some more DNA samples.

The DNA came reputedly from a pillowcase in what was said to be Madeleine's room. Iirc the FSS report stated it to be of a female child of the McCanns. Initially didn't exclude Amelie. Then the samples were ditched. FSS discredited. DNA evidence is not worth the paper it's printed on now.
Still tells us a lot.

We've had plenty of details given about Maddie, strangely - in the book - there is no description of her room, her bed, her favourite bedding, her toys, her drawings.

So why not sell the Sun a photograph of Maddie's room? All to help refill the coffers of the FundLtd. Co. of course.

I have always wondered why Kate - never one usually to miss a good opportunity - hasn't been photographed, looking suitably pained, in Madeleine's room.

It's not as if she believes that some things are too private to be shared, as we know to our cost from her book.

The McCanns said eight-year-old twins Sean and Amelie have not been allowed to sleep over at friends’ houses...

Kate said: “They haven’t had any sleepovers with friends and I know that goes on a lot..."

“It will get tougher obviously as they approach their teenage years and want that freedom – they’re still at that young age where they can’t really see it from a parent’s point of view...”

“Amelie has even been into ski school for the day – it is hard letting go but you take all the precautions.” .....................................................................................................................................................................


Of course the twins are not allowed to go to friends, unserpervised by the parents. They could learn other sides of the story implanted in their head by their parents, or have a free access to a computer.


“It will get tougher obviously as they approach their teenage years and want that freedom – they’re still at that young age where they can’t really see it from a parent’s point of view...”

Tougher? Tuition at home? Only a few selected friends?.Till they, completely indoctrinated, can only see from their parent's point of wiev for life?

The real problemes start now for G.and K. McCann.I nearly pity them.

I don't see why not, as long as those parents aren't up the pub whilst the kids are sleeping, the McCanns sloppy attitude of parenting is the minority....

And now mum Kate, speaking ahead of the sixth anniversary of Madeleine’s disappearance on Friday, has admitted she hardly lets twins Sean and Amelie out of sight.
But they were in the creche within DAYS of Madeleine disappearing? When an abductor was on the loose?

She continued: “There is one potentially coming up soon and I’ve given my blessing.”
What are you, the Pope?


“Amelie has even been into ski school for the day – it is hard letting go but you take all the precautions.”
Again, the children are supervised whilst on such outings, when Madeleine disappeared they weren't. Big difference, the chidlren are clearly better off on outings!


Kate said: “The search is very much ongoing. Nothing is slowing down, if anything I feel it's escalating.
You don't know now, you just feel it's escalating?

Gerry added: “In some respects I think we're actually in a better position now in terms of working out what happened.”
Really?

Very strange why there isn't an actual picture of the room with this article, then.

Mind you maybe people might question why there's a pool table in it because I don't believe this bullshit for one second!

They didn't give a damn when they put the twins into the creche the day after Maddie went 'missing'. They didn't know if the 'abductor' was one of the staff. Nope they went to the tapas for lunch. Load of trollox and too late to be 'protective' parents.

It must be very creepy for the twins IF Maddie's room hasn't been touched since. I wonder if they ever go in there....

Probaly a sign pinned on door saying 'DO NOT ENTER, nastyman, monster, burglar inside"

That'll keep the twins from going in her room!

Good comment on that article:


Hmmm. I wonder if they invited the twin's friends to theirs for a sleepover if the parents would say, 'yes sure' or if they would be busy on the night in question?... I hope the real truth emerges one day, whichever way it roles. Re: if it had happened to parents from a 'council estate'; they would have been charged with neglect and castigated for sure... which is what should have happened to these 'professionals', at the very least. Personally, I think they have some effrontery popping their heads above the parapet continually when it is their fault it happened... by which I mean leaving the children alone of course.

Classic Gerry McCann response, yesterday.(Skynews)

"I think, erm, from our point of view it's still about being VIGILANT, um,er........

JUST LIKE HE WAS 'EXTRA VIGILANT' WHEN MADELEINE WAS 'ABDUCTED BY A PAEDOPHILE' WHEN HE AND HIS WIFE WERE DRINKING, OUT OF SIGHT, AT A TAPAS BAR!

Is there an outbreak of 'foot IN mouth' disease at Rothley Manor?

I also would like to see the room.....still the same like before the holiday. Maddies pink room. ( I believe it when I see it)

So Maddie's bedroom and things are exactly how she left them? Six years ago?

Including her sticker book? Cuddle cat? Sandals? Red t-shirt?

Aye. Right.

I hope it is a big room, after all 6 years worth of Birthday and Christmas presents in there, it must be quite cluttered.

Post  Panda on Thu 2 May - 17:08

I think Kate uses the children like no Mother I know. Remember the video in the Channel 4 anniversary where she is painting with the twins and paints the name Madeleine, saying to them "whose that? They said something and she laughed and said "No silly, it's Madeleine". Normally , a Mother tries to protect her offspring but Kate keeps bringing them into conversation and ignores the fact that at two years of age their memory of their sister would be gone if she didn't keep reminding them. To stop them going to sleepovers, usually for teenagers , is childish and selfish , at least Gerry thought it was O.K. How can they say they are nearer to finding her when after 6 years and numerous "sightings". Madeleine has vanished without a trace.
If SY really ARE keeping them informed how can this Review not be biased?

I think that's a good question. If the McCanns don't want the twins sleeping over at friends' houses, why don't friends sleep over at the McCanns' house?

I think Kate and Gerry just come out with things at times, that make them look good, without thinking through the obvious response.

Because maybe the other parents would want their child back in the morning? That child having been in the care of responsible adults all evening, so it doesn't get "snatched"?

Speaking personally - the McCanns can't yet stop the majority from expressing their opinions - I think that children would be safer in the absence of adults like them and their friends.

Perhaps there could be a fear of what the twins might disclose about their own home life if they spent time with others.

I recall that the children of Fred and Rose West weren't allowed to socialise with anyone outside of their family; not surprising in view of the horrors that went on there.

I recon Madeleine's room is probably stacked high with unsold books.And as for not letting the twins out of her sight what about all the hours training for the marathon run,did the kids run along with her.
I think the ugly woman tells porkies.
