As you know, Kerry was supposed to be on ITV 'this morning' today.



At 11pm last night, Kerry was informed her slot had been cancelled


No reason was given as to WHY.


She was packed and ready to go to travel to the studio..



What a disgusting thing to do to her...dismissed and treated like this...would the mccanns off been treated like this, no they wouldn't, they would off travelled down the night before and put up in a five star hotel.



What more evidence do people need that their is a cover up....it's rubbed in our faces every day and the pair are laughing at us all.

She's going tomorrow because people have complained NOT because they rescheduled it.


Kerry had NO explanation when they cancelled last night, they didn't say...do you mind coming in Wednesday instead...it's people pressure that made them 'reschedule'.

Lots of comments about the McCanns on the Daily Mail article "Ben Needham's mother is dropped by ITV's This Morning in favour of segments on Blinged Up Babies and big boobs".

Wouldn't have happened to the mcanns would it

curlysue, nottingham, United Kingdom, 2 hours ago

I really feel for this lady, she hasn't had hardly any publicity compared to the Mcanns. All down to money and who you know.

MsG, Glasgow, United Kingdom, 3 hours ago

Never watch this awful show but I can guess if this had been the McCann's this would not have happened.

And the highest rated comment is...

null, United Kingdom, 4 hours ago

If she changed her name to Kate McCann I'm sure they wouldn't have cancelled. Says it all really . (1691 green arrows, 178 red arrows, that's a 90% disapproval rating for TM)

I know that TV forget the schedule if they find something more interesting. á'This Morning' told á a friend of mine that was due to appear áthat they would not be needing him, it was about a book he had written. He was in the studio ready! á Also My son who had spent áall day in London on various radio programmes was asked by ITV to stay in London and appear on the 10 pm news, then it was cancelled. á á This is all done last minute and they do not give a damn about the people that they were supposed to be interviewing. No matter how far they had travelled.

Basically it is all about if they find something they think more interesting. áShame on them for doing this to Kerry Needham, totally disgusting.

I don't know much about the case. And in that point it's just 'she said so'...
I don't have any facts about the case. Don't know what is true.
If something learned from mccanns case, I never take 'says so' as a fact.

But ITV wouldn't had treated mccanns that way. And the whole UK MSM would have been 'furious' about it if so. Double standards from them.

It is a strange case, weissnicht, and there is no evidence to suggest that Ben was abducted. His disappearance can only be described as unexplained.

So there is a similarity to the McCann case with the basic information but an absolute world of difference with the way the media has dealt with them.

I don't know a lot about this case but just wondering if the interview went ahead today as re-scheduled. I can't seem to find anything about it online.

Yes ,it did go ahead today, I watched it.

For some reasons I do find the Needhams more credible, particularly his mum. áI do however remember a documentary from years ago, that pointed the finger at Kerry's brother. áCan't remember all the details, but I believe he has special needs, and I seem to remember the docu saying that it was thought that he might have given Ben a lift on his moped....had an accident, and panicked and got rid of the little lads body. áThe programme showed him being regressed to see if he could remember anything, but nothing came of it. áSince then I've always had some doubts he was abducted.

áinterested, yes it went ahead with Kerry and her mum.
They said the police had a lot of calls through after their appearance on Greek TV.

Just seen your reply RA
Yes, it was Stephen(?) wasn't it and he was hypnotized to see if he could remember anything.
I'm not sure it was a stranger abduction either, iykwim, but I don't think Kerry knows anything.

Re: Ben Needham

Post  Roasted Arizona on Wed 20 May - 21:26

Just googled and found this in the Guardian.
I went with Danny to the hospital. He told me that his father had been advised to give up smoking, and that if he didn't he was going to be in trouble. "They said I'd got type 2 diabetes," Eddie reported on the way back, strapped like a sparrow into the front seat. "Got to reduce my sugar intake. Can't smoke in your car can I? Dying for a fag." Christine went back to Eddie a week after I saw them in June 2008.

Ben's uncle, Stephen Needham, lives in the Lincolnshire farm workers' cottage that was his parents' home until they moved to Cyprus. For most of his adult life he has worked on farms, on building sites, or for his father, helping to collect scrap metal. When I visited him last year, he was on disability benefit. He was born with Perthes' disease, a condition that causes the hip joints to crumble. In the last few years it has started to cause him trouble and will need to be operated on again. "So I'm on the scrap heap," he said, ruefully, "but I like pottering and gardening and decorating and drawing."

Stephen looks a lot like Kerry. He has the same blond hair, the same narrow slanting eyes, high cheekbones and slender build. He said his childhood couldn't have been happier. He loved the journey to Kos, when for two months the family and their Corgi made their way across Europe in the Land Rover, dragging behind them a caravan they slept in. "It was funny, it was fabulous," he said.

Stephen was the last of the family to see Ben. "He said: 'Bike, bike,' and I said, 'No chance, go to Grandad.'" Then Stephen got on his bike and didn't look back.

Because of this, when he was questioned by the police he was singled out. They said that his moped looked as if it had been involved in an accident. Stephen told them about a minor crash a few days before, when he'd swerved to avoid some tourists on quad bikes, which explained the lack of indicators and a smashed fairing. But they weren't satisfied. "You fall off, kill the child, bury him?" the policeman said. The questioning had gone on like this for days. "They tried to break him," was how Eddie had put it, "but there was nothing to break."

When the family returned from Kos, though, Stephen got back into a normal pace of life much sooner than his sister and parents did. Within two years he was living with a girlfriend and by the time he was 23, he had two daughters. He was working on a building site, had passed his driving test and was enjoying life. But his relationship with the girls' mother started to break down, and eventually he left. "I know nobody would understand someone walking away from their kids," he said. "It killed me. If I'd stayed I wouldn't have been able to carry on. I'd have given up. I was already going through emotional stress: it was either leave and get away from it or go down with the sinking ship. But I was bonded with my children and that's what nearly killed me."

Ever since the police questioned Stephen, their idea that he might have had a hand in Ben's disappearance has haunted him. "Did I take him, did I pick him up and put him on my bike, did I drive down that lane? I was questioning my own sanity. It was always there. How could a child disappear, how could he just vanish? Did I forget him somewhere or have an accident? Did I run over him or fall off my bike? I've asked myself that again and again."

In 2001, when another TV documentary was made, to coincide with the 10th anniversary of Ben's disappearance, Stephen was asked if he would be interviewed and whether he would undergo a form of hypnotherapy on camera. He agreed because he'd heard it might help to retrieve hidden memories. In the film he had to revisit the last moment he saw Ben and confront the doubt created by the police interrogation. It was traumatic but, when the filming was over, Stephen walked away sure that any suspicion that he or anyone else might have harboured that he could have accidentally killed Ben would be dispelled once and for all. Despite this, and although the film exonerates him, Stephen's fears were justified.

A year ago, he was out having a drink with his brother Danny and Kerry's husband, Craig. "One of my mates was half asleep, drunk on a sofa and a group of lads were threatening him, so I went over and said, 'Give up, he's drunk,' and one of them went, 'Oh, aren't you that uncle of that Ben that disappeared?' I said yes. 'You took him on your bike, didn't you?'"

It's taken him years to understand how the trauma of Ben going missing has affected him. "Our feelings were on hold when we were all trying to resolve Ben's case, so your own emotions get waylaid. And then when it starts to fade away, that's when you're left with yourself. If I hadn't been through that experience in Greece, I'd have been mentally stronger and more able to deal with the problems, to work through things." When I asked him how much he thought his adult life has been determined by losing Ben, he said, "It's been destroyed, hasn't it, really?" The one member of the Needham family who never knew Ben is Leighanna, his little sister. As a toddler she resembled Ben so much that they could have been twins. It was this resemblance to Ben that led Kerry to agree, when Leighanna was 21 months old, to go with Christine and Eddie to Kos, to take part in a TV reconstruction. Leighanna was the same age Ben was when he disappeared. Her hair, the same colour as Ben's, was cut short so she would look like him and the TV crew filmed her in Herakles, walking out of the house and on to the lane, to see if it could offer any clues.

The circumstances of Ben's disappearance (as we have been told) are very strange. One minute he was there, the next he was gone with nobody seeing or hearing anything untoward.

I have wondered if his other uncle, then aged 11, had any part (accidentally of course) in whatever happened to him.

I hope that one day the mystery is solved.
