JUST DESSERTS

It's European election day. Me, I'm a member of the silent majority, and now cannot even be bothered to cross the street in order to make my democratic mark in support of a proposed representative (proposed by some organization to which I do not belong) who will, I am sure, enjoy the regular 'chunnel' commute to work in picturesque Brussels . I bet he or she won't have to pay for their season ticket though.

Maybe we get the government we deserve, so that the apathetically disinterested among us can have no grounds for complaint when neo-nazi policies come into force (as if they haven't already, in the guise of 'health and safety' guidelines). However, as Clint Eastwood's Oscar-winning cowboy character said whilst staring down upon a soon-to-be past-tense Gene Hackman: "Deserve's got nothing to do with it".

Madeleine McCann did not deserve to die. Goncalo Amaral did not deserve to have his career curtailed. The Portuguese do not deserve to be 'badmouthed' at every turn by semi-literate UK journalists and other 'media types', and no one deserves to be addressed by personnel in public office, directly or indirectly, as though they were obliged to be grateful certain tasks are carried out on their behalf at all, when it's we the people who are subsidising their very existence!

So, as the apologia are passed among those public representatives who feel compelled to comment on the McCann investigation, we have heard from the DCI leading the day-to-day efforts, the 'top brass' who are guided by government, and now the deputy headmaster at New Scotland Yard who 'did not give details about what the next phase would involve, but said officers were working through every credible line of inquiry as part of the "slog of a major investigation".'

Where in god's name do they find these people!

For the benefit of slow learners he even repeats the statement:

"It's something that you would expect in any major inquiry.

"A thorough serious crime investigation works systematically through all the credible possibilities, and often in an investigation you will have more than one credible possibility”.

I think we understand the 'rule out method'. Gerry McCann does, so it cannot be that hard to grasp. What is far more difficult to understand by far is how this spokesperson (for Mr Rowley one might just as easily read Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, DCI Redwood or any other member of the Grange Brigade) can calmly speak of the 'slog' of working through 'every credible line of inquiry' in this case. How many credible lines of inquiry does he (or they) imagine exist? In reality there is only the one.

Sitting round a table over coffee in Portugal discussing which plot of tundra a child abductor might favour when disposing of a victim's body is not at all a credible line of inquiry when one considers that Madeleine McCann's abduction was simply not possible in the first instance. The McCanns have confirmed that all the window shutters were down, Kate McCann confirms in her book (p.130) that the front door was locked, and Rachael Oldfield confirmed in a statement to police (15.5.2007) that the patio shutter was closed also. Apartment 5a lacks a chimney.

Proceeding from there, Mr Rowley, no credible line of inquiry, no credible line whatsoever, can originate with the hypothesis of abduction, although, if you ask him nicely, I'm sure Gerry McCann will lend you his copy of 'The Interpretation of Murder', which deals with the very same access conundrum.

On the face of it sir, your colleagues at Operation Grange are wasting their time, taxpayers' money, and assisting in the process, not of resolving a crime but of turning UK society into something of which I am fast becoming ashamed to be considered a part.

Merci Panda,
even if frencheuropean will cross the street to vote on Sunday, she fully agrees, in general, with the views of Dr Roberts.

at the risk of sounding a sycophant I always look forward to his posts, and I nearly always agree with them.
