•She branded missing Madeleine McCann's mother Kate 'dreadful' while in prison

•Maddie vanished from the family's apartment as the family holidayed in Portugal

Karen Matthews has branded Kate McCann 'a dreadful mother' for leaving daughter Madeleine alone on the night she vanished, her best friend has revealed.
Matthews, who faked the kidnap of nine-year-old daughter Shannon, said: 'I've been judged and I'm paying for it but Maddie's mother was bad too.
'At least my daughter was never left alone!'
In a bizarre rant against Maddie's parents Kate and Gerry, Matthews told friend Julie Bushby: 'Don't get me onto the McCanns, we've all got something to say about them.


'We're too lower class for them but we can still have an opinion. There seems to be one rule for them and another for us but she was a dreadful mum.
'She left one, two, three babies alone while she was out eating and drinking with her mates. My Shannon was kept away from her family but she was never left alone.'
Ironically, Matthews, 41 – now freed from jail – has ditched her first name and is known as Kate. The moniker is thought to have been inspired by one of her Hollywood idols and not by Maddie's mother.
Matthews' attack on Kate and husband Gerry is revealed for the first time as the couple have been criticised twice in three days on social media and national radio.
And her onslaught on the McCanns comes ahead of tonight's Channel 5 documentary which looks at whether the investigation into the plot to kidnap Shannon should be re-opened.
Julie claims friend Matthews is 'too stupid' to have invented the Shannon kidnap alone without colluding with others.


Wealthy parents, former GP Kate and heart doctor Gerry, both 48, of Rothley, Leicestershire, had already won the nation's hearts and public funding when three-year-old Maddie was snatched from a Portuguese holiday apartment in May 2007.
At the time they had left her and younger toddler twins siblings Sean and Amelie alone while dining in a nearby tapas bar with friends.
Schoolgirl Shannon vanished from her mother's home in Dewsbury, Yorks in February 2008.
She was discovered 24 days later following a £3.2million police search two miles away at the home of Michael Donovan, uncle of Matthews' boyfriend Craig Meehan having been drugged, tethered and hidden inside a divan bed.
Matthews, who had seven children with five fathers, and Donovan were sentenced to eight years over the kidnap plot.
The pair had allegedly been inspired by Maddie's disappearance and invented the kidnap plot to claim a reward for 'finding' her.
Matthews' best friend and former neighbour Julie, who has kept diaries of her prison visits, told MailOnline: 'Karen talked about Maddie and her family, the difference and unfairness of their social situations.
'She's never understood why British and Portuguese police haven't taken it any further and asks in her simple almost child-like state if it's because 'they're rich and posh and she's poor and common'. '
Mother-of-three Julie, who led the painstaking search for Shannon and still supports her friend said: 'I want to sit her down and ask 'Why?' She's not got the highest IQ and I wonder if she was coerced into doing something she didn't want to do.


'If someone said to her, 'Look, I'm skint, I need some money, help me', I think she was that daft she would have done anything.
'Karen was guilty and put her hands up but she wasn't the brains behind the plot to kidnap her daughter.
'I'm not excusing her in any way but I and the rest of the neighbourhood want to know the real reason for what happened. We want answers.
'I've kept a diary and have a record of all the times I visited her in jail but that one question remains unanswered.'
Matthews was thrown into the public glare earlier this month after controversial BBC1's The Moorside re-enacted the staged snatch. Campaigning shop assistant Julie was played by star Sheridan Smith.
But the hugely popular show came under attack, including from the Maddie's parents. And Matthews, now living at a secret location in the south of England, claims she has been bombarded with death threats.
She served just four years of her sentence, walking free in April 2012.
The McCanns, who are facing the agonising 10th anniversary of Maddie's disappearance in May, have been bombarded with social media and national radio rants in the past week



Host Katie Hopkins claimed on her Sunday show on LBC Radio that their daughter would never be discovered. She said: 'Maddie was lost because she was left to be found.'
Just three days earlier on Friday glamour model Jodie Marsh posted in a Twitter rant that Maddie's parents should be searching for their daughter 'on their hands and knees digging up the bare earth' rather than be side-tracked and busying themselves suing people.'
Matthews criticised the McCanns, who were having tapas with friends close to their holiday apartment in Praia da Luz on the night Maddie disappeared. She and twins Sean and Amelie had been left asleep at 8.30pm in the ground-floor apartment, while Kate and Gerry dined in a restaurant 180ft away. The parents checked on the children throughout the evening, until Madeleine's mother discovered she was missing at 10pm.
A source close to the couple said: 'If it wasn't such a serious matter of a missing child it would almost be laughable. Two very minor celebrities and a person jailed for a crime against her own daughter dare to comment about a case they know nothing about.
'Kate and Gerry won't be saying anything to fuel this whirlwind of nonsense. They don't want to give these peoples' egos even more exposure.'
Today Britain's top police officer Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe will stand down having failed to fulfil his pledge to find Maddie to 'end her parents' torture'.
As the Scotland Yard chief steps down his force is still no closer to knowing what happened her despite vowing he was 'confident of resolving' the world's biggest missing child mystery.

Operation Grange, the inquiry launched in May 2011 to the spiralling £13million cost to the taxpayer, has failed to unearth any significant new clues.
A Met Police spokesperson said: 'We are cracking on.' But she refused to divulge if a final 'last throw of the dice' lead which Sir Bernard said would be investigated last summer has produced a shred of evidence.
The high-profile case is now being wound down. The Home Office has not allocated any extra cash after next month. A spokesperson said: 'Funding will continue until the end of this financial year. The resources required will be reviewed again at this point.'

Both mothers claimed faked abductions. Karen Matthews friend states "she(Karen) wasn't the brains behind the plot" - another similarity. I think Gerry was the 'brain' behind the plot in Madeleine's case, of course with a great deal of Government help in the cover up.

Shameless Karen Matthews in attack on Maddie McCann's mum Kate

SHAMELESS Karen Matthews last night labelled Kate McCann a “dreadful mother”.

By Joe Kasper / Published 1st March 2017

The faker, who pretended her own daughter was kidnapped, hit out at Madeleine McCann’s mum for leaving the toddler alone the night she vanished.

In the rant, Karen slated Kate and claimed to be a better parent.

And she said: “At least my daughter was never left alone.”

She tore into the McCanns, claiming they are only getting public sympathy because “there’s one rule for them and another for us”.

Karen was jailed in 2008 for a plot that involved drugging and tying up her own daughter Shannon and hiding her under a bed.

She hoped it would lead to fame and cash. Her shocking words came to light last night following Channel 5 documentary Shannon Matthews: What Happened Next.

It follows the BBC drama The Moorside, which told the tale of Shannon’s fake kidnapping and how it was inspired by the real-life events of Madeleine’s disappearance in Portugal in 2007.

“At least my daughter was never left alone”
Karen Matthews
Madeleine’s parents Kate and Gerry, criticised the show as “poor taste”.

But Karen, talking to pal Julie Bushby, also laid into the McCanns.

She said: “I’ve been judged and I’m paying for it but Maddie’s mother was bad too. At least my daughter was never left alone. Don’t get me on to the McCanns.”

Madeleine vanished after Kate and Gerry left her and her siblings alone in a holiday apartment while they dined in a nearby tapas bar with friends.

Karen also claimed they were getting more sympathy because they are not poor.

“Karen talked about Maddie and her family, the difference and unfairness of their social situations.

“She’s never understood why British and Portuguese police haven’t taken it any further and asks in her simple almost child-like state if it’s because ‘they’re rich and posh and she’s poor and common’.”

The March 1 Daily Star describes Karen Matthews as, "The faker who pretended her own daughter was kidnapped.......". The description fits Kate McCann to a "T".

They are as bad as each other IMO, but at least Karen has been tried, found guilty and served her sentence.

Is this yet another attempt to show how helpful and generous the McCanns were/are with other people's money, or just the usual plain old BS being issued forth from the mouth of Clarence McLiar?????
