Madeleine McCann: The Parody

by | 25th, May 2007

THE mystery of Madeleine McCann’s disappearance is turning into a parody.

Who knew that when Simon Jenkins wrote “It was as if a missing child were this year’s Make Poverty History campaign”, his words would give the grief mongers an idea?

As Sky News reports, green and yellow wristbands symbolising the plight of missing Madeleine McCann have gone on sale.

The yellow ribbons (has anyone seen anyone wearing the ribbons we are all wearing?) are old hat. To show you really care you need the official wristband.

The bracelet costs £1. And, as reported, all proceeds will go towards the campaign fund set up by Madeleine’s family to help continue the search for the little girl.

That’s good. Useful even. The money will surely help the McCanns dedicate their time to the search for their missing daughter.

But why not just give money via the fighting fund? Or by wearing the wristband do you share in the public spectacle, show how much you care and, crucially, how much more you care more than non-wristband wearers…
