Justified criticism is not abuse, Mr and Mrs S!

A dossier on the abuse against the McCanns - similar in nature to the abuse directed against the authors - has now been submitted to the Metropolitan Police by a group of concerned internet 'watchers'.

"As part of our research into the hate campaign, one of the people we interviewed was part of the group that recently passed a dossier and a letter of concern to the Metropolitan Police Commissioner," Robbyn explained.


BINGO.

Of course, we all know where they got their info from, but it's useful to have it straight from the horse's mouth ...

Let's cut through the spin here.
You write a book that is so one-sided that even before the launch you have to insist that you've exonerated the McCanns. That aroused a huge amount of suspicion and red flags straightaway.
You then proceed to insult all those who seek justice for Madeleine (with help from we-know-who) by labelling them 'haters' who 'propagate poison' and 'cowards hiding behind keyboards'.

With those two actions alone you have totally alienated most of your potential book buyers/readership.
Result - lousy sales figures. It's a simple Supply and Demand situation in a free market.
And that's OUR fault?

"It's high time for a walk on the real side" - as somebody once sang ...

Blimey.....first we have ...Brit police clear the mccanns...now we have ....Authors face web abuse for stance on McCanns
Couple call for crackdown on internet 'trolls' after their BOOK clears missing Madeleine's parents



That's it then ...apart from one thing......Brit police or a book can't clear the Mccanns...only the Portuguese can ...and they havent

S & S blood money book has now sunk to 32,546 in the Amazon Bestsellers Rankings.

Looks like karma got up early this morning ...

If this doesn't warrant a complaint to Summers and Swan's publishers, I don't know what does ...

Early this morning the S & S book was listed at 92,740 in the Amazon Bestsellers Rankings.

But have no fear, it has now leapt, nay soared, up to a magnificent 86,441!
Phew!

That must place it somewhere between:
My Dirty Dossier by A Portly-Snitcher and Clarrie And The Media by Ben Dover and Ivor Sawbutt.

Schadenfreude.
Almost as good as karma.
