Madeleine McCann: a Paedophile and a song

by | 5th, March 2012

BARRY James Shaw has appeared at Belfast Crown Court, charged with downloading and swapping images of children being sexually assaulted. He also fantasised about kidnapping Madeleine McCann. Shaw has been jailed for two years.

Judge Patrick Lynch QC tells Shaw:

 “You may have felt at the time — in your room downloading these materials — that you caused no hurt to anyone, but for each of these appalling images there are victims, and if it were not for people like yourself there would be no demand for them, and the abuse that is inherent in the production of these materials would not occur.”

He had a large collection of images of child rape.

He later admitted to police that he had fantasised about kidnapping Madeleine McCann, the three-year-old who was snatched from a holiday resort in Portugal, in 2007.

In other news, the Sunderland Echo reports:

British toddler Ben Needham disappeared more than 20 years ago from the Greek island of Kos, aged 21 months.

His devastated family have never given up looking for him and have now enlisted the help of musician Nigel Graham.

The 42-year-old, from High Usworth, Washington, has already composed moving anthems in support of the search for Madeleine McCann and missing Canadian Jessie Foster, who disappeared from Las Vegas, aged 21.

Anthems? Says Nigel:

“A man called Steve Farthing who runs Madeleine forum asked if I could write and compose a song for Ben, because the song I did to help Madeleine has been a good success on the internet in raising awareness.”

Madeleine McCann is missing…
