Madeleine McCann: Child Alert, Fear And Tony Bennett’s McCann Club

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

DAILY TELEGRAPH: “Madeleine McCann: Kate and Gerry’s fury at ‘club’ devoted to prosecuting them”

Gerry and Kate McCann have expressed their anger at the establishment of a fee-paying “club” dedicated to seeing them prosecuted over the disappearance of their daughter Madeleine.

A retired British solicitor, Tony Bennett, has set up a fund called The Madeleine Foundation, which aims to bring a private prosecution against the McCanns for alleged child neglect.

Tony Bennett has been on Anorak.

But Madeleine’s parents fear members of the public will inadvertently donate money to it because they may mistake it for the McCanns’ own Madeleine Fund, which pays for private investigations into her whereabouts.

Mr Bennett says his fund is a “subscription-only members’ club, charging a £10 annual fee”.

Says Clarence Mitchell, the McCanns’ spokesman: “It is a great shame that Mr Bennett feels the need to make money out of Madeleine McCann. He did not seek permission from Gerry or Kate to use Madeleine’s name.”

It’s a brand?

“This so-called foundation is in no way doing anything to help find Madeleine.”

Says Bennett:

“Some of the money immediately raised will be used to pay for a barrister to give his or her opinion on how best to proceed with a legal action against the McCanns. We are a group of people, which is rapidly growing in number, who want to get to the truth of what happened to Madeleine. We will also campaign for changes to the law about parents who leave children on their own.

DAILY MAIL: “Brussels throws out McCann’s appeal for European missing child alert system”

Kate and Gerry McCann’s campaign for an alert system for missing children across Europe will not be adopted by the EU, ministers said yesterday.

Madeleine McCann: Justice Hogg Says, Portugal Reacts And No Evidence

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

DAILY STAR: “COPS GIVE UP MADDIE DOSSIERS!”

POLICE yesterday agreed to show Madeleine McCann’s parents 81 witness statements. The couple’s detectives will study the confidential documents and re-interview the witnesses.

And what have we learned so far, after 14 months of inbestigating – other thn a child is missing?

Her GP mum Kate and heart consultant dad Gerry, both 40.

Says High Court Judge Mrs Justice Hogg: At the court in London, the judge said:

“There is, of course, one person who knows what has happened to Madeleine and where she may be found.

Madeleine McCann: More Evidence, Tony Parsons Knows And Claims

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

DAILY MAIL: “McCanns win right to see key evidence about Madeleine’s disappearance held by police”

The parents of Madeleine McCann today won the right to see key documents held by police relating to her disappearance.

Won?

The McCanns had planned to take Leicestershire Police to the High Court but no case was heard as the force agreed to give them access to 81 pieces of information gathered as part of the investigation.

Progress? Elsewhere, in the same online article:

The couple, who are both 40, are not expected to attend today’s hearing in London before Mrs Justice Hogg…The hearing is scheduled to take place in the High Court’s family division, although it will be held in open court.

Such is the news.

Madeleine McCann: Reporting Injunction

Can the UK press be barred from reporting on these reports?

Madeleine McCann: Allison Pearson Demands And Fact Checking Kate And Gerry McCann

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

Madeleine McCann is retuned to the front pages.

DAILY MAIL (front page): “ALLISON PEARSON ON THE McCANNS… If the Portuguese police had a shred of decency they would now make a public apology to Kate and Gerry”

Page 5: “Now clear out names”

Before the Mail’s columnist can voice an opinion – and what is the case of Madeleine McCann but one of opinion upon opinion – time to go over the fact that has been established in 14 months of reporting (a child is missing) and hear the McCann plead their innocence.

Oh, there is one other fact: the “McCanns are “both 40”. Remember that.

PEARSON: “The Maddie detectives must now apologise”

Now it seems the spectacularly incompetent Inspector Cluesnos are ready to admit they have no evidence against the McCanns

Yeah, those hapless amateurs. If only the Portuguese wooden tops were more like the British tabloid hacks who root their maybes in Portuguese press reports and hunches. What of Robert Murat?

DAILY MAIL: “Kate and Gerry McCann to be cleared as Portuguese police close Madeleine investigation”

Portuguese police have concluded their probe into the mystery and found no evidence against the couple, it was claimed today. Fellow suspect Robert Murat will also be cleared of any crime, respected Portuguese newspaper Jornal de Noticias reported.

Papers gets news from other papers.

Robert Murat’s lawyer Francisco Pagarete said he knew nothing of the latest developments in the Madeleine McCann case. He added: ‘We haven’t been contacted by anyone in the police for more than three months. Robert is calm.’

How The Madeleine McCann Story Was Hijacked By Web Trolls

FROM the Anorak Forums – by AGW:

One of the most bizarre and troubling aspects of of the Madeleine McCann story has been the way the coverage of the story has itself become the story.

Anorak is not a site which has ever been (or ever will be) dedicated to the alleged crimes of abduction and subsequent claim and counter-claim of deeper, darker deeds involving in turn a resident Englishman in the Portuguese holiday complex where the McCann family had been staying and then the parents and their friends themselves.

Madeleine McCann: Selling Books

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

Madeleine McCann has become the benchmark for all mention of paedos and missing children in fact and fiction. After Ben Affleck’s film, the press now has books by Irvine Welsh and Catherine O’Flynn to conjure with…

DALLAS MORNING NEWS: “’What Was Lost’ by Catherine O’Flynn: Masterful mystery draws shivers with tale of missing girl”

It is no great surprise that in 2007, when Britain was obsessed with the Madeleine McCann case, a novel about a missing child should resonate with readers there. What Was Lost won Catherine O’Flynn the prestigious Costa First Novel Award and made her the British book trade’s “Newcomer of the Year.”

Madeleine McCann: Tabloid Bingo With Ginny Dougary And Irvine Welsh

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

Madeleine McCann has become the benchmark for all mention of paedos and missing children in fact and fiction. After Ben Affleck’s film, the press now has a book by Irvine Welsh to conjure with.

THE TIMES: “The gentrification of Irvine Welsh”, by Ginny Dougary

This whole subject (including the blame-the-mother syndrome) is discomfitingly topical – from Portugal, with the vanishing of Madeleine McCann, to Goa (the murder of 15-year-old Scarlett Keeling) and the ongoing morbid fascination with the Austrian captivity cases of Natascha Kampusch and Elisabeth Fritzl.

It’s Tabloid Bingo! in the tabloid Times…

Madeleine McCann: A Solicitor Writes To The Express

LITTLE news in the Express of the paper’s once ubiquitous missing cover girl Madeleine McCann.

One reason could be that Express Newspapers have received a solicitor’s letter from the so-called Tapas 7 threatening to sue the paper in relation to “a number of articles”.

All ‘Our Maddie’ related content has been purged from the newspapers’ websites.

Can we expect another generous donation to the McCann fighting fund soon, and Madeleine to reappear on the papers’ front pages, albeit for one day only?

Madeleine McCann: Beyond A Joke

LARGS & MILLPORT Weekly News (Scotland): Charity worker in Maddie sick joke row

A charity boss from West Kilbride has been suspended over a sick joke about Madeleine McCann.

Senior manager Lynn McBain was suspended earlier this month after referring in a staff newsletter to the 4-year-old girl who went missing from Praia da Luz in Portugal over a year ago.

Some readers were left shocked after she joked that “McCann oven chips” had disappeared from her oven after she left them there for 20 minutes.

When is it safe to make a joke from a tragedy?

Madeleine McCann: Death Threats And A Bedroom Intruder

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

LEICESTER MERCURY: “DEATH THREATS MADE TO GERRY AND KATE”

Gerry and Kate McCann have installed panic alarms and CCTV cameras at their Rothley home after receiving “menacing letters and e-mails”.The report, in a Sunday newspaper [The People], said the parents have received two death threats – and one sender suggested an intruder would target the missing five-year-old’s bedroom.

And do what? Take pictures for a tabloid?

The People quotes a Leicestershire Constabulary spokesman who tells the world:

“Unfortunately, there are some lunatics out there. They will not let these people break them down.”

Does that sound like an objective police officer?

Madeleine McCann: Irvine Welsh, French T-Shirts And A Halo

SUNDAY HERALD: “I don’t believe we get rewarded or punished, but I believe we have a responsibility to try to get the best out of life and make it comfortable for other people”

IRVINE WELSH arrives at the Irish Film Institute in Dublin carrying a holdall in two-tone, light beige leather; it gives the impression that he has just walked in from a picnic. Natural atrium light swamps his head and in a flash he’s almost on top of me, swapping his bag from one set of fingers to another and shaking my hand. His face contorts: he is an hour and a bit late and he’s sorry.

A halo?

Welsh’s jacket is reversible yellow. His T-shirt, in French, says “What would you do if this was the end of the world?” Well? “I don’t know,” he says, apparently uninspired by the question he is advertising.

Madeleine McCann: Speculation As Fact, Newspapers Speak With One Voice And OAP Dead

mccann-europe.jpgMADDIE WATCH – Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann

The newspapers continue to rely on press releases and Gerry McCann’s blog for their investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

THE SUN: “Maddie police files to open”

KATE and Gerry McCann will soon have access to police files covering the search for missing daughter Maddie

This is presented as a fact.

Says the McCanns’ spokesman Clarence Mitchell: “We’ve heard nothing officially, but if it’s true judicial secrecy has been lifted we welcome it.”

So how does the Sun know about the police files?

THE STAR: “MADDIE COPS TO SHOW MCCANNS EVIDENCE”

Gerry and Kate McCann will be given full access to confidential case files, Portugal’s top law officer revealed yesterday.

Portugal’s top legal eagle told them? But how does the Star know?

DAILY MAIL: “MCCANNS TO FINALLY FIND OUT ‘EVIDENCE’ MADELEINE POLICE HAVE AGAINST THEM”

Attorney general Fernando Jose Pinto Monteiro told daily newspaper 24 Horas: “From July, the (Madeleine) case will cease to be covered by judicial secrecy, and will be available to consultation by all parties involved. I do not know which date, but in July the case ceases to be covered by judicial secrecy.”

That’s right – this latest McCann story is rooted in an opinion voiced in a Portuguese newspaper.

Says the Mail: “24 Horas speculated the judicial secrecy will end on July 14 – more than 10 months after the couple were named suspects.”

Speculated? But what of the facts? Well, here they are:

Madeleine McCann: Relocated To The Royal Court

tabloid-bingo.jpgMADDIE WATCH – Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann

THE TIMES: Relocated at the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs, London SW1

Yesterday, the Telegraph’s Charles Spencer reviewed the play Relocated and thought of Madeleine McCann, the Soham murders and Josef Fritzl. He left out Shannon Matthews. Can the Times’ Sam Marlow do better at Tabloid Bingo!?

Anthony Neilson’s new play, written during the rehearsal period and finished just days before its opening, is claustrophobic and clotted with menace. It’s performed, in the author’s horribly compelling production, behind a black gauze, which turns from opaque to transparent with lighting changes.

Madeleine McCann: EastEnders Reacts, Evil GP And Relocated

The newspapers’ hunt for Madeleine McCann has passed. The missing child now serves as a point of reference for anyone looking to add realism to a work of fiction:

Eastenders’ “Mad May” is one of the most sinister psychos to grace Walford. The evil GP vanished last year after trying to steal her love rival’s baby.

A female doctor, like Kate McCann?

In an exclusive chat with The People, Amanda, 38, talks about being single, her friendship with Catherine Tate and why she was relieved when scriptwriters changed her storylines at the time Madeleine McCann went missing.

Madeleine McCann And Lenore Skenazy’s Son

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

NY Sun columnist Lenore Skenazy allows her nine-year-old to walk about New York on his own. In that paper, she tells us:

I trusted him to figure out that he should take the Lexington Avenue subway down, and the 34th Street crosstown bus home. If he couldn’t do that, I trusted him to ask a stranger. And then I even trusted that stranger not to think, “Gee, I was about to catch my train home, but now I think I’ll abduct this adorable child instead.” Long story short: My son got home, ecstatic with independence.

SUNDAY MAIL: “So Would You Let Your Nine-Year-Old Travel Home Solo In City Rush Hour?”

To Glasgow, where the paper is investigating is this is wrong or not so wrong?

SCOTS psychologist Ros Taylor insists Lenore did nothing wrong – and “we should all be preparing our kids to become independent adults”. You can trust the word of a sports psychologist.

“We all think about Madeleine McCann and hear of kids being locked in a basement for years. But they’re actually at greater risk of being in a car accident – yet we insist on driving them everywhere.”

McCann and Fritzl. It’s Tabloid Bingo.

And cars are dangerous. Cars are paedos on wheels with leatherette interiors. And let’s not get started on paedos in cars…

Madeleine McCann: Paulo Reis And Duarte Levy Write

NEWS on the McCann case from Portugal and France:

McCann couple goes to Strasbourg for a last ditch stand

Gerry and Kate McCann will be in Strasbourg next Tuesday in order to try to secure enough support from Members of the European Parliament for a “written declaration” concerning the creation of a European Amber Alert system covering all 27 EU states. But, in fact, this idea was originally proposed by the EU Commissioner for Justice, Freedom and Security, Mr Franco Frattini, in 2006: a detail never mentioned by the McCanns, their media advisers nor by Clarence Mitchell. Mr Frattini proposed that each country should establish an EU alert system, but it was not an initiative for the European Parliament’s legislature.
However, Deputy Assistant Commissioner Richard Bryan, a UK top ranking police officer, who is the Association of Chief Police Officers head of missing people, told the media in May 2007 that “there was no need to emulate the US system of immediate information broadcasts once children have been reported missing.”

According to the Times on-line edition, “Mr Bryan congratulated the McCanns on doing a ‘sterling job’ in raising the issue of how police deal with child abductions, but he said that police would rather use other investigative techniques to trace children before going public and potentially alerting abductors.”

The UK already has a national alert system for missing children, as Richard Bryan told the Times, “that has been in place since 2003 in Sussex and it was rolled out nationally by 2006. We have only had to use it on three occasions.”

Since 2006, Mr Frattini’s initial idea has taken shape. In February 2007, the European Commission decided to ask all member states to reserve a dedicated set of national phone numbers starting with “116”. The idea was that they should be used as a hotline in the event of a missing child. So far, 10 EU countries have adopted the idea, but the UK is not one of them.

On April 21, following a meeting with the McCanns, five Members of the European Parliament (Edward McMillan-Scott, Roberta Angelilli, Glenys Kinnock, Evelyne Gebhardt and Diana Wallis) submitted a written declaration to the European Parliament concerning “Emergency Cooperation in Recovering Missing Children.” The declaration “calls on Member States to introduce a missing child alert system” and asks for the creation of a “common organisation to provide assistance and training” to police forces in the 27 EU countries.

In order to have the “written declaration” sent to the EU President and published, the McCanns still need the signatures of 182 more Members of the European Parliament to reach the required number of 393. The “written declaration” is just a way to “launch or relaunch a debate on a subject that comes within the EU’s remit”, but it has no legal implications for the EU state members.
