Madeleine McCann: The Exeter Connection

Lat week, the Express told us of the hate campaign targeted at Kate and Gerry McCann. Today the talk is of “smears” against the McCanns family and friends.

Why has the Express promoted Madeleine McCann to its front page, positioning her in the spot reserved for Princess Diana? Is this what Diana would have wanted? What is the Express selling? Hope? Its credentials as a caring organ? Conspiracy?

Reading on, we learn that there is no hate. The McCanns friends have not been subjected to physical and verbal attacks. There is just a Portuguese newspaper Sol saying that detectives hold no-one above suspicion.

The police are pouring over inconsistencies in the friends’ statements. All nine are being treated as suspects.

And hospital consultant Russell O’Brien, friend to the McCanns, has, it is claimed, been spoken to by police about his time in Exeter. O’Brien and his partner Jane Tanner moved to the city weeks before their trip to Portugal. The Express reads Sol and thereby learns that Murat was in the Devon city for 10 days, arriving back in the Algarve on May 1.

Justine McGuinness, the McCanns’ campaign manager, tells us: “It is absolutely not the case that anyone in the party with the McCanns had ever met Robert Murat before they went on holiday.”

And that’s it.

And Madeleine McCann is still missing…
