Madeleine McCann: Snatched, Lowe Humour And More Flick Cox

MADDIE WATCH – Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann, Kate McCann and Gerry McCann

Gerry MCann returned to Portugal. Kate Mcann did not go with him. Here’s the story of the story that keeps on going:

DAILY MIRROR: “Madeleine mum can’t face return”

Heartbroken Kate McCann was too upset to go back to Portugal where her beloved Madeleine was snatched.

A breakthrough. She didn’t wander off. Cancel the Channel 4 investigation! Madeleine McCann is another Diana to milk like a surrogate cow.

The Mirror has proof?

Kate, 40, stayed at home in Rothley, Leics, looking after the couple’s twins. Maddy was nearly four when she went missing from an apartment in Praia da Luz in May 2007.

Any other facts?

No. Of course, saying she was “snatched” is unlikely to trigger a libel writ issued by a man arguing the point that she wandered into his car.

CHESTER STANDARD: “Chester Conservative councillor expelled after Madeleine McCann fancy dress comment”

Young Tory Matthew Lewis dressed up as Madeleine McCann for larks.

Richard Lowe has been booted out of the Conservative Party following a comment he made on the Facebook website.

What did he say?

Cllr Lowe, at the time CF North West regional co-ordinator, replied, in a reference to the popular historical comedy series Blackadder, starring Rowan Atkinson: “Is this a cunning (Baldrick style) plan to obtain the reward money? Room for one more?”

A third CF colleague, Flick Cox, said she could not wait to see the pictures taken at the party.

Flick. Cox. No, no joke here. Move on.

Cllr Lowe formed part of the successful Conservative team who enjoyed a landslide victory in the first elections for CWAC but two of the three Tories who won are now sitting as Independents.

Only Cllr Tom Parry remains on the controlling group’s benches.

Cllr Lowe now sits as an Independent – that’s him in the blonde wig and eye patch…
