Madeleine McCann: David Cameron Investigates And Clarence Mitchell MP

buzzcock1MADDIE WATCH – Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann David Cameron investigates, Clarence Mitchell Tory MP and Amaral’s tabloid tales…

Daily Express: “MCCANNS BEG CAMERON TO HELP THEM FIND MADELEINE”

Well, Gordon Brown failed. Dave… Can you help?

KATE and Gerry McCann have asked David Cameron to help find their daughter Madeleine after a private emotional meeting with the Tory leader.

Does Dave have form? He’s a busy caseload right now, what with looking for Tory policies and cycle route from No.10 to Westminster.

James Murray reports:

KATE and Gerry McCann have asked David Cameron to help find their daughter Madeleine after a private emotional meeting with the Tory leader. They spent half an hour at his Westminster office explaining their frustration and disappointment with the investigations.

Gordon Brown was Colombo. David Cameron is Inspector Lynley. It turns out that David Cameron might not be required to pound the beat.

If Mr Cameron wins the election – expected on May 6 – the McCanns hope he would give the case a new priority and order a review of all the evidence.

And then this:

Andy Coulson, the Tory director of communications, and Clarence Mitchell, the McCanns’ spokesman who hopes to stand as a Conservative in the forthcoming election, were also present.

What facts to we have so far?

Last week it was disclosed that Kate and Gerry, 41-year-old doctors from Rothley, Leics, have had a private meeting with Home Secretary Alan Johnson to request a review of the evidence.

Doctors. 41. Now we’re getting somewhere…

After the mawkish display of yellow ribbons in the chamber – do Our Boys in Iraq have ribbons? – can the politicians deny the McCanns whop have lost their daughter, been libelled and wronged yet again? Says the Mirror:

Kate and Gerry McCann accuse British Government of hampering search for Madeleine

Kate and Gerry McCann yesterday accused the British Government of hampering the search for their missing daughter. They claim Portuguese cops have leads to Madeleine’s disappearance but they have been unable to access them.

The couple say despite meetings with Gordon Brown and top UK officials, the three-year investigation has stalled.

Time to vote in a new PM – Prime Maddie…

News of The World: “Right to ban Madeleine McCann lies – PORTUGUESE JUDGE GETS IT SPOT ON WITH BOOK BAN”

The News of The World, which libelled Robert Murat, knows:

GOOD on the Portuguese judge who refused to lift the injunction banning the vile book on missing Madeleine McCann, written by ex-cop Goncalo Amaral.

Yes, we must defend freedom of speech.

But Amaral’s book, which claims Maddie is dead and the McCanns faked her abduction, wasn’t about freedom of speech. It was about making money out of the misery of a devastated couple.

It was based on no facts, forensic or otherwise. And more than anything, it was damaging to the search for Maddie, who we all hope may still be out there.

Amaral’s book is tabloid fiction. It’s the story of Madeleine McCann, as told by the British media…
