Madeleine McCann Not A Victim Of The Credit Crunch

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


Can the credit crunch be linked to Madeleine McCann? It’s been tried before.

DESPITE the credit crunch, one or two businessmen and woman are doing well enough to make it onto Stockport’s rich list, according to a recent publication.

Stockport’s rich list is required reading in the area’s golf clubs and jails…

Stockport’s top spot is reserved for Sale Sharks owner Brian Kennedy. Kennedy, the son of a window cleaner, bought the Guinness Premiership Club in 1999 and has also owned Stockport County.

That link… It’s coming…

Despite being estimated to be worth £350million, Kennedy is probably most famous for offering his financial support to Kate and Gerry McCann in their search for daughter Madeleine.

And has the credit crunch affected Mr Kennedy’s double-glazing empire?

Kennedy stepped in to back the couple after they were both made formal suspects in the Madeleine inquiry. At the time, he also offered the help of his company’s in-house lawyer.

And the credit crunch?

In a statement released by Kennedy last year he said: “In light of the quite literally incredible accusations against Gerry and Kate McCann, which are clearly exacerbating their incredible torture, I felt compelled to offer financial and logistical support.”

Due to the, er, credit crunch journalist Rob Dawson’s investigation ends there.
