The Murkiness of Maddie

Matthew Steeples questions the reasoning of the continued funding into the investigation into the ‘disappearance’ of Madeleine McCann

 

Madeleine McCann deserves justice. That’s undeniable but what is utterly wrong is that so do all the other missing and presumed dead children.

 

That ‘Maddie’s’ supposedly respectable middle class doctor parents – guilty at the very least of child neglect on the basis that they left their children unattended in spite of having the resources to afford a babysitter – continue to attract media attention and have managed to persuade the state to part with £11.95 million (plus millions more from the public) is an absolute outrage.

 

If this innocent child had been working class would she have attracted such resources? I think not and if, as Janet Street-Porter pointed out in the Daily Mail today, ‘Maddie’ had not been “cute and blonde,” would people still be interested?

 

Aside from parties in Downing Street with their mate Theresa May and trips on the alleged abuser Sir ‘Shifty’ Philip Green’s plane, Gerry and Kate McCann mostly have spent recent years hanging out with the likes of the charity tin loving Baroness Meyer and her “red socked fop” hubby Sir Christopher. They have drained resources that could have been used to find countless others and it is jolly well time that this pointless and ridiculous search was stopped.

  1. Shocking waste of money , which could have been used to alleviate more compelling needs for deprived children . The parents in the Madeleine case saw an opportunity to milk the system in perpetuity. Clever PR used unscrupulously

  2. I agree 100% with everything you’ve said, it’s outrageous the resources that have been poured into this.
    By the way, where is Find Madeline Find her know? I can’t understand why she hasn’t jumped down your throat, she must still be sedated.

    • My sentiments exactly. Well done Matthew. The McCanns should have been prosecuted and no more taxpayers money should be wasted looking. It should instead be spent to support victims of abuse or other more worthy causes.
      Don’t get me wrong the child did no wrong but the parents failed her. It is also disrespectful towards other people with children missing for the state to focus so many resources on the one child. There must be a point when the Police focus funding in other areas.

  3. The Macanns should be prosecuted for leaving 3 children and for one being kidnapped and for not answering lots of questions that makes them seem suspicious. Very important questions were asked and they were dodged anyone innocent surely would’ve answered anything when their little childish missing. The boot seat being open for hours etc… I could go on. Poor sweet girl
