This does illustrate once again the difference between the coverage of the McCann case and that of any other missing child.

Never seen the Greek police suffer the same character assassination that the PJ has suffered either.

This is disgraceful - just getting a standard letter from Cameron fobbing her off. Wish this article had been in the main press as its an exellent example of how the government decides that some people are privileged and others are of no importance.

This is only makes me more hopeful the McCann investigation is not a whitewash.

I wish I could think the same Margaret, but unfortunately I don't. I see whitewash, cover-up and corruption. Madeleine McCann is not the only child that has ever gone missing, but as far as I know she is the only child whose parents blatantly neglected her, leaving her and her younger siblings alone night after night in a foreign country and were not even chastised for their neglect. The only child whose parents have made millions out of her and yet the government still throws millions of tax payers money to fund pointless reviews and even more pointless investigation. The only child whose parents lied, changed their stories time and again and were never even once challenged about this. I could go on and on. I'm afraid I only see a big whitewash job.

A cover up in a country that the crime didn't occur .


There was still a death in pdl, death off Madeleine Beth McCann and it is written in stone that the parents off the said child were involved and hid her body.


You can't rewrite history.


So.....they can say in the UK she was abducted, they can say in Australia she was abducted......anywhere in the world they can speculate and say she was abducted...but in Portugal she died.....they won't be opening the case until SY or the MET come up with enough evidence to open the case to convict the Mccanns and whoever is involved in the ONLY coverup their is .

Conversation a bit like this?
LSS: So Kate you went abroad with THREE kids and came back with only TWO, any explanation for that?
KM. The one i didn't come back with was abducted.
LSS. Really? Any evidence of that?
KM. I was there and know more than you do.
LSS Oh, ok, could you pass me another jammy dodger?
KM. Certainly, now if you've no more silly questions i'd like you to leave, so that i can get back to writing a book about Madeleine's abduction. Time is money, and all that.
LSS. Of course, Kate, if there is anything at all you want, absolutely anything, just ring this hotline number and we'll be here straight away.
KM Oh get out!
LSS. Thankyou Kate, you're a marvel and role model to every other feckless mother who leaves their THREE kids, all under 4 years old, alone every night in an unlocked apartment, abroad and returns with only TWO.
KM. I am aren't I, hmm, maybe i could become an ambassador for all those other negligent mothers that will say their kids were abducted.?
LSS. We're sure you could and should be and we will be recommending you.
KM. Now get out, you f**king t***ers!
LSS Thankyou, thankyou.

Excellent - might be funny but, in all seriousness, is just how everyone including DC has kowtowed to the McCanns and their abduction story. I know DC filed Kerry Needham in the `not important drawer` and would have done with any other person with a missing child, so the conclusion I came to long ago was that the McCanns have dirt on someone extremely high profile, e.g. a banker who controls the government, royalty or someone with a lot of power.

‘Don’t forget Ben’ pleads Kerry Needham after Maddie boost

July 5th, 2013



Sheffield’s Kerry Needham is hoping the new twist in the Madeleine McCann investigation will boost the search for her son Ben – missing for 22 years.

But Kerry,41, has slammed Prime Minister David Cameron claiming she has never had the help the McCanns have been given.

Kerry was happy that the Kate and Gerry McCann’s hopes of finding their daughter were given a huge boost with news that the Metropolitan Police were preparing to quiz 38 ‘people of interest’ over the disappearance.

But Kerry has made a heartfelt plea for the same help to track down Ben who was snatched from outside a farmhouse on the Greek island of Kos that was being renovated by Kerry’s parents in July 1991.

Since then Kerry, who has a daughter Leighanna ,20, and her family, from Sheffield, have had to finance the search themselves. Earlier this year she published a book ‘Ben’ to help continuing finance for her search.

Said Kerry: “If British police officers are investigating Madeleine’s disappearance and they are actually searching for her that’s brilliant but we expect the same. – they are no different.

“They are different cases obviously but at the end of the day they are two abducted children and what’s good enough for one family should be good enough for all, that’s my opinion.

“Basically we expect the same as the McCanns . There is no bitterness involved but they are two missing children , they are both British so we want the same treatment.

“If all the stops are being pulled out to find Madeleine, which is only right, then we should have the same help.

“We’ve had to do everything ourselves. We’ve had to physically get on aeroplanes and go and follow up sightings and things like that ourselves.

“The finances have been down to us, whereas millions of pounds have been thrown at the Madeleine McCann case . We haven’t had that . That was one of the reasons I needed to write my book to try and raise awareness and finances for us to continue the search.

“I know we are getting a lot of help from South Yorkshire Police now. I can’t complain about what they are doing but obviously it does come down to resources – they can only work with what they’ve got.

“We want South Yorkshire Police backed 100 per cent by the government and pull out all the stops to find Ben as well as Madeleine.”

When Kerry appealed directly to Prime Minister David Cameron to intervene, as he did in the McCann case, she was left upset and disappointed and binned his reply.

Said Kerry: “I wrote to David Cameron some time ago and eventually I did get a reply but I threw it in the bin. I’ve kept all the letters from the Foreign Office and other places but I threw that one in the bin.

“My letter to him was heartfelt from a mother begging for help. I’ve written to every Prime Minister since Ben disappeared.

“The last straw was when everything went into finding Madeleine and I wrote to him and begged him to help me saying what’s the difference between Ben and Madeleine?

“The reply was a very political letter full of jargon that meant nothing to me. It was a cold, blunt letter with no warmth at all. It wasn’t a letter from a father sympathising and empathising with a mother whose child has been missing for more than 20 years. It upset me.

“It wasn’t personal there were no feelings in it for me. I had asked what was the difference between my family and Madeleine’s family. I told him they were getting everything and I was getting nothing. I asked him why , as Prime Minister, he couldn’t step in and help me.

“The reply wasn’t what I wanted and not what I wanted to hear, it was just a bog standard letter.”I wanted him to step in and help and to push everything. I mean he’d had conversations with Kate and Gerry on the telephone and I was asking him what’s the difference between them and me?

“I’m very happy that the McCann’s are getting all the help but I want the same. South Yorkshire Police have been amazing but more can be done if there are more resources like the Madeleine McCann case has got .”
