It's an old article ~ why it's resurfaced is anybody's guess. Don't know what Jerry Lawton's playing at. Ashley Peacock died in the tram crash!!!!

There's nothing unusual about soap plots being rewritten or scrapped when real-life events happen which are vaguely similar.

Goodness knows, Fred!

Perhaps Jerry Lawton couldn't think of a new silly McCann story and took one from his vast back catalogue instead.

This has been lifted from a much larger general Q & A piece with Stuart Blackburn on YouView (Oct 16):

http://www.youview.com/blog/2014/10/16/people-who-make-tv-coronation-street/

But the Mirror and the Star have only printed the bit about the McCanns.

Somebody must have told both of those rags, on the same day, that it was a VERY IMPORTANT STORY.

Thank goodness they did scrap it, 6/12 months of "who done it" yet again would have been purgatory. It´s more than purgatory that the Mccanns must be mentioned every day as it is. When oh when is some brave soul in the press industry going to print "The Mccanns left 3 tiny children alone in an apartment in a foreign country and one child "disappeared" ? Somehow I suspect never.

Did anyone see Skynews  report of Sonia Poulton and Katie Hopkins saying the Mccanns were neglectful?  I've heard it was yesterday but can't find it.

I watched it but I don't think the Mccanns were mentioned? Sky news hyped it up and it turned out to be a 5 minute piece with Katie Hopkins trying to talk over Sonia.

This is it then?  I'd watched it and thought it must be the wrong report, obviously not!

The writer speaks of "the tragedy of the McCanns' case" and the TV bosses had to rewrite "so that they they did not distress the McCanns".  It's always about the McCanns; not the tragedy of Madeleine and her siblings being left alone by heartless parents.

This is what Sonia said on Twitter yesterday

"I hope s/one has full Sky int. with Hopkins and myself. The condensed version online misses bit on @metpoliceuk #mcann dossier & free speech"

PS
She also sent this tweet to J Gamble 8 hours ago
"Hello @JimGamble_INEQE I'm doing #mccann documentary & would like to interview you. Serious rumours surrounding your involvement to address."

Ooh err missus! I bet she doesn't get a reply.

Good for Sonia Poulton.

For daring to challenge the McCann’s abduction story in no uncertain terms, she was named as a Troll on the dossier handed to the Met Police by the McCann’s.

Far from being cowed, and given that the Met was acting on this information, Ms Poulton (cleverly, imo) decided to contact the Met Police to ask them what they were going to do about the Trolls who have been attacking her.

Answer? Absolutely nothing… No resources you see.

Strange then that they have the resources to investigate the Trolls named on the McCann dossier, as reported by SKY News…

By Martin Brunt, Crime Correspondent

The Metropolitan Police is investigating a catalogue of vile internet abuse targeting the family of Madeleine McCann including death threats, Sky News can reveal.

Officers are in talks with the Crown Prosecution Service after being handed a dossier of more than 80 pages of Tweets, Facebook posts and messages on online forums aimed at Kate and Gerry McCann.


So, it appears it's one rule for the McCann’s and… (apart from their attention seeking bosom pals, the Madeley’s)... stuff everyone else.

I reckon Sonia Poulton is rightly miffed by this and is starting to dig pretty deeply.

Going by her tweet to Gamble, he is most definitely in her sights.

And hopefully, the McCann’s will not be very far behind him…

@RosalindaHu @veniviedivici he did respond...by blocking me! Shocked, frankly, I was respectful and direct in request.
