Gordon Brown To Underwrite Madeleine McCann Entertainment Industry

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

WHAT’S ON STAGE: “New Spring Seasons Announced – Finborough Theatre and Southwark Playhouse”

South London venue the Sothwark Playhouse have announced their new spring season line-up which will follow on from a successful autumn season which saw the venue play host to a diverse range of shows including Moll Flanders, Unstated and Shakespeare’s R & J.


The new season will include the return of new writing theatre company Nabokov with further instalments of their Present Tense series in February and April. The series unites top talent from across the theatre industry to create a response to a particular topic in current affairs in just seven days. In previous years artists have tackled a wide range of news stories including the Brixton McDonalds shootings; the schism in the Anglican church over homosexuality, the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, and the Baby P case.

Now that’s entertainment.

GET SURREY: “Fresh appeal to find missing Ruth”

Get Surrey. Oooooo!

A FRESH appeal has been made to help find a missing person who vanished from the Dorking area 13 years ago.

Never found.

Former Surrey Police officer Mark Williams-Thomas, who was the family liaison officer for Ruth’s case and now advises police on child protection issues, said the case was “extremely bizarre”. But the retired detective, who has worked on elements of the Madeleine McCann and Shannon Matthews cases, said he was sure Ruth was not abducted by a stranger.


DAILY MIRROR: “Disabled pensioner gave lfie [sic] savings to Karen Matthews to help Shannon search – Exclusive”

Winston Bedford was so moved by the nine-year-old’s disappearance he sent her evil mum £500. But the wheelchair-bound 67-year-old never heard back from her – and was devastated to learn she staged the abduction for money.

She might reply now. She has time.

Winston, who also suffers from epilepsy, is now struggling to pay soaring energy bills and has been unable to top up his electricity meter for more than a fortnight…

Have a heart for Winston. C’mon Gordon Brown, underwrite his debt!

The pair, inspired by the hunt for Madeleine McCann, hoped to cash in by “finding” Shannon and claiming a reward.

Old Mr Anorak says he gave Matthews £3,291, which Brown can make payable to the Happy Smile Ping-Pong Club, Phucket, Thailand.
