I can't imagine that the residents of PDL have any sympathy with the McCanns. They must be sick to the back teeth of all the media hype and circus every time an anniversary comes round.

You just have to read the words of the McCanns' lawyer, Isabel Duarte, to know what people in Portugal feel about her clients. she was the one of said that everybody was against her for defending them...

RB: We’re here for Isabel Duarte. The libel lawyer concedes that defending the McCanns against the former detective is not a popular fight here in Portugal.
ISABEL DUARTE: I feel alone.
RB: Why? ISABEL DUARTE: I feel alone because I don’t feel support, not in public opinion. I have friends that don’t want to talk to me about the case. RB: Why? I don’t understand.
ISABEL DUARTE: Because everyone believes in Goncalo Amaral. Everyone believes that I am defending a father and a mother that have killed the daughter and got rid of the corpse. wrote:

Wonder if Old Mother Hubbard will be accompanying Hubby Hubbard on his 4,000+ mile trip to Portugal.
Or is she still blushing with embarrassment at the memory of the Lisbon trial when she and other Kate Groupies turned the legal proceedings into pure farce?

And no mention of the Tapas Mob being in attendance. Not even one token Tapasnik.
C'mon guys, where's your solidarity?
Run out of vigil candles, mayhap?

I am probably wrong but thought the Hubbards went back to Canada a while ago , didn't the McCanns meet up with them when they went to Canada a couple of years ago with the twins?

As for Duarte , she hung on to Amaral's books after the injunction was lifted until forced to return them by the Court so I quite understand why she is not very popular.LOL

I would imagine the McCanns will rank alongside the Seven Plagues as far as the Portuguese people are concerned, as they are among the residents of Rothley....

I would have thought the residents of PDL would have written to the British Press asking whether the British Public realise how their lives have been turned upside down by the McCanns who they really felt sorry for initially. I think the British Press would print it.!!!

Regarding the comment that the McCanns would be made welcome, I am reminded of an earlier topic "Residents of Luz hit back". It's well worth another read at this time. ('Please Help Luz' plea as Madeleine "circus" descends on village again) The article from the Portugal Resident was kindly posted by "frencheuropean" on March 31 under the topic "Residents of Luz hit back" and can be found near the bottom of the topic page. (The topic was first posted by "Iris".)

No sign of any of the other Tapas on the guest list, they are not travelling ?  Interesting the distancing over the years.  Grief unites people very often.   Look at Hillsborough - people who had no direct ties with the 96 still to this day share a bond.  Yet the Tapas, who had a direct connection with the McCanns loss have disappeared.

If the McCanns had any respect for Portugal they would stay away and leave their people in peace.  At this time of the year, descending yet again on Luz, shows no regard for the people or their much needed tourism industry.

I know the residents of Praia da Luz, can't stand the McCanns and who can blame them. However I'm comforted to know that the dislike of the McCanns is spread across Portugal along with Spain.

I'm happy to be proved wrong, so thank you to those who have proved me wrong. Like others, I just wish the McCanns would crawl into the nearest gutter and stay there.

Also if Goncalo Amaral's book, is now on sale in High St. book stores, can someone give me the name of a book store where the book is sold. I would love to be able to give my friend the name of the book store, then she can ask her Portuguese friend to buy it on her behalf. The last time her friend tried to purchase the book was around 12 months ago in book shops in and around the Lisbon area.
