newmaddie-682_92080_920880a1 MADDIE WATCH – Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann : Up until know we have heard nothing from the McCanns’ twins, Sean and Amelie. But today we get :

McCann Twins: We will fight man who took our sister Maddie

What man? What kidnap? The Daily Record says a beast took her. If the kids are going to be crime fighters they need to understand the facts. And the facts are two: Madeleine McCann in missing. There are no suspects.

The media gets to work staring at the kids who we watched go to school, who now have speaking parts in the media circus:

Mirror : “‘The twins both know the person who took Madeleine has done something very bad.. they just want her back home'”

Madeleine McCann’s four-year-old twin siblings are now slowly grasping the horror of her abduction, their parents revealed yesterday.

They are getting the fear that has been spread by the media for over two years: it could be you.

Heart specialist Gerry revealed: “They’re saying, ‘When we find who took her we will fight them’. That doesn’t come directly from us saying that.

But you did relay it to the media. And the mention of Gerry McCann being a “heart specialist” is relevant because he continues to be the middle-class father of a missing blonde child.

Gerry McCann is talking to Sky News:

“They talk about her more than Kate and I do – it’s incredible. Now they are saying, ‘She’s been taken, when we find who took her, we’ll fight them’. Amelie this week in particular was saying, ‘When I find that man I’m going to do this and that’. I said, ‘No, we will give them to the police and then put them in jail’.”

So not the man of the Sun’s headline, but men plural. Or women.

The McCanns have launched a new campaign to search for the media’s Our Maddie. The media’s Third Summer of Maddie was stymied by the death of Michael Jackson. Now the kids are back to school, the paper’s favourite missing child and fallback story returns with much fanfare.

Images of Madeleine McCann as she may now look have been released. And one image has been adopted above all others:

One image, as revealed in The Sun yesterday, shows her with dark skin and hair – as she might be if held in North Africa.

As if. The darkies have got the blonde child. Spread the fear. Beware of the foreigners.

As the Star whispers about those darkies:

The 60-second police appeal video has been translated into seven languages, including Arabic.

Arabs. Darkies. No proof. Still, they are very, well, dark. Back in the Sun :

Kate, 41, admitted the pictures were painful to look at, adding: “She could have had her hair dyed, she could be tanned. It’s to let people know she’s not necessarily that little blonde girl they saw a few years ago.”
