ALBERTA McCANN?

Those of a certain age may recall the film Albert R.N., which tells the true story of how a number of naval officers, imprisoned in Germany during the Second World War, escaped undetected, whilst their beleaguered colleagues substituted a uniformed dummy during the role calls. It was all about filling what would otherwise have been a noticeable void.

"You may be wondering not only what relevance all these minute details might have to anything, but also how I can recall them so distinctly and how accurate my recollections can possibly be. The answer is that, within a couple of days, every single apparently inconsequential thing that happened on that holiday would become vitally important, and Gerry and I would soon be painstakingly trying to extract from our brains every tiny incident, no matter how small, that might have been significant". (Kate McCann in 'madeleine').

Madeleine McCann's disappearance was announced on the night of Thursday 3 May, 2007. That it took 'a couple of days' for 'every single apparently inconsequential thing that happened on that holiday' to become 'vitally important' perhaps explains why Kate could remember absolutely nothing about either the Monday or the Tuesday when making her statement to the Portuguese police on 4 May. The inconsequential things had not yet become vitally important obviously. Give them a day or two to ripen in the mind, as they did in Gerry's, who at least (10 May) slipped in an account of the family's beach trip on the Tuesday afternoon, 1 May; a recreational alternative decided and acted upon by both parents. And yet Gerry McCann's own observations regarding Monday amount also to absolutely nothing, despite his extensive recall of the Sunday before.

So what did Kate have to say about either day (Monday, Tuesday) when re-interviewed months later, on 6 September?

Again, nothing. ("When asked about the 1st of May 2007, a holiday, she says that on that day they left the apartment around 8:30PM, the same time that was repeated every night."). Nothing save mention of the shutters in the parents' bedroom:

'...she knows they use the shutters, even because Gerry broke them and they were repaired on the Monday'.

Except the repair in question was not carried out on the Monday, but Tuesday morning, between 10.00 and 11.00 a.m.

What on earth has become of those 'vitally important inconsequential things'? Recollections which we are told required but a couple of days to mature in fact took four years!

It is in 'madeleine' that we learn (?) the detail of the maintenance staff visit to 5A that Tuesday morning, to explain the workings of the washing machine and to repair the bedroom shutter. Kate leaves them to it, we are told, as she unexpectedly turns photographer at the tennis courts, where Madeleine unexpectedly appears for mini-tennis (her playgroup was scheduled to be swimming at the pool). We also gain an understanding of the emotional trauma brought on by having to cross the road for ice cream, and the practicality of sunglasses in more southerly climes.

Kate, who finds herself belatedly able to wax lyrical in retrospect about Tuesday May 1st remains totally silent regarding Monday April 30th.

Where was Madeleine on the Monday? What did she do for over two and half hours in-between leaving the crèche for lunch at 12.30 and returning again at 3.15 p.m., for a mere fifteen minutes? She must have been needed for some significant purpose to have been removed so swiftly. What was of such importance that she had to forfeit her afternoon garden adventure and mini dance?

It is clear from the signed record of attendance that Madeleine McCann was not at the crèche beyond 3.30 p.m. so where was she?

In the P.O.W. camp it took two naval officers to hold the stand-in in place. The McCanns likewise have a space to fill in their story, yet neither of them could keep their end up sufficiently as to give a convincing impression. Not then. Not now.

It has never been explained why Maddie spent just 15 minutes in the creche that day. Seems like that must have been a significant event, but not mentioned by Kate McCann in her book. Maybe SY should be asking why.

Sadly, SY aren't interested in important things like that
