Some very interesting views, that are never likely to make it into the British MSM

They should start an industrial action, or demonstrate on the streets or give the journalists a kick up the backside!

‘Please Help Luz’ plea as Madeleine “circus” descends on village again

As British television networks once again descend on Praia da Luz in the run-up to the seventh anniversary since Madeleine McCann went missing, a local resident has come out fighting. “It’s time to turn things round,” she told us. “Every year it is the same … British journalists arrive and dredge up more nonsense about Luz. We are meant to be overrun with child molesters, burglars, homosexuals, Eastern European child-snatchers ... Whatever next? Will it be the Taliban? “They are back again now and this time they have interviewed a homeless person and a ‘prophet’,” the long-term resident told us on Saturday. “They have paid for these interviews. Now, they are apparently looking for a well-known gay man. “These are the stories the British newspapers are looking for! They are not interested in the views of the real people of Luz - all of whom are fed up to the back teeth with the village being shown in such a bad light.” The "homeless person" - a "perfectly pleasant man, but never sober" - is not a representational figure of local residents, explained the woman, and the “prophet” is someone who wears a turban and “walks around with a pole with a light on the top of it”. "Neither can be considered typical Luz residents, but nor are they in any way threats to the community," she added. The expat woman, who asked not to be named as she has “no wish to be a hero”, said: "It is time Luz had a voice." “Last year, when the news people were asking questions as they do every year, I went up to the interviewer and said I would like to say a word or two. “I said I wanted to know why they weren’t interviewing the McCanns for gross negligence that had led to a fatal result. He just dropped me because they don’t want to hear anything like that. They only want to report about people they can label as "weirdos". “Quite honestly, I feel it is time Luz turned round and sued the McCanns for slander. “I would like to stand as a voice for Luz. Who will want to come here after all the negative publicity? The British newspapers paint the village as one full of terrible people. This is grotesquely unfair. It has got to stop!” As is so often the case, concern over speaking out has left this voice of Luz for now unnamed. She told us “everyone feels the same” - and behind the scenes few would disagree. A high-ranking staff member at Luz Ocean Club told the Resident earlier this year: “Luz has taken such a battering over the last seven years. It really is time to do something for this community - help it rally round.” But, like the anonymous "voice of Luz", the man asked not to be identified. Meantime, the Ocean Club is one of the prime movers behind a community triathlon event planned later this month precisely to promote the picturesque village “before the holiday season gets underway”.

Wouldn't it be just like the McCanns to sign up for the triathlon and the British press to cover it to commemorate the seventh anniversary.

The organisers should refuse to accept them. Then there would be the usual shitty " cruel, heartless Portuguese snub to suffering McCanns" bollox in all the rags, but at least the genuinely suffering people of Luz might finally get a say.

Amen!    
and never forget the pink pimping pimpernel, who quickly whipped up xenophobia amongst the sheeple, and who lies with as many teeth as he as in his mouth!  Haul his lying backside to court, and sue the pink pants off him I say!

Why don't WE do something....copy this Article and e-mail it to every U.K.  Newspaper and Scotland Yard? We should demand that it be reproduced on their front page.

I THINK THAT IS A GREAT IDEA, LET'S SEE WHAT RESPONSE WE GET.

Andy is rewriting history so very soon (well in about 8 years and £20 mill later) Luz will be the most idyllic location for your family holiday and this event will never have happened.
What was it we where talking about ?

We don't know anyone in PDL Lioned or we could suggest they email the British Press and just see how many or them do post the Article. Maybe Amaral will do it for them. Could you imagine that , the McCanns would be incensed but unable to do anything about it.

This article is dated March 31st.
Surely the various assorted reptiles from the media outlets will have run out of 'weirdos' and local eccentrics to interview by next weekend at the earliest? So what else to do? Film the same old footage of 5A, OC and the beach? Sit in a bar day after day typing copy on a lappy?

It does rather beg the question - why are they there so early?
It sure is a long time to spend away from the office on company expenses.
I kinda thought that money was tight for them these days, so how and why are they forking out for this extended jolly? Just what are they expecting to see in the month preceding the anniversary?

Any day now, the new lineup of "suspects" will hit the papers - Homeless Man, Turban Man and Well Known Gay Man.  All direct from Praia da Luz.  Place your bets on who will be first!
