So Sky News have once more dedicated a day's news to the suffering of Gerry and Kate McCann, the tortured parents of missing people's poster girl Madeleine McCann. A couple who left their children alone while they went out to dine and a couple who spent the night phoning the press while others searched for their missing daughter.
For seven years these parents have taken every opportunity to grab the front pages, by whatever means, and the morning after the poor, battered body of Alice Gross is found, we get saturation news coverage of, err, the McCanns.
But lets take a closer look at these 'trolls'. I am one of them. I use my own name and picture and none of my tweets are aggressive, rude or, God forbid, threatening. Look at my timeline Mr. Brunt, in fact look at the timelines of the majority of anti's on the McCann hashtag - you will see that they are ordinary, decent people who simply refuse to buy into this scam and who will not allow such a blatant miscarriage of justice.
This is the age of information Mr. Brunt, and anyone with the gumption to look beneath the headines, can see that this was a cover up on a major scale, and that people such as yourself are trying to hoodwink us. Why Mr. Brunt? Unfortunately for the powers that be, the people do have a voice, and none of us will be persuaded by these sledgehammer tactics of labelling disbelievers haters and trolls.
I suggest anyone interested in this story should check out the internet group who compiled this dossier - Stop the Myths, JATKY2 - read their forums, and then try to justify these Groups, Mr. Brunt. You will find quite a few pages relating to myself, together with a variety of obscene, photoshopped pictures of me. Tell me Mr. Brunt, is it not considered vile behaviour if it comes from supporters of the McCanns? When I lost my mother I spent an evening with a group of them trying to persuade me to commit suicide? Is that still OK with you and Mr. Gamble?
I will never know if my book Cry and You Cry Alone - a memoir of my time in care - was good or bad, because of my McCann stance. I was the 'evil' one. I never look at my own Amazon page, because they did their worst. So Summers and Swan you are not the first authors to have been targeted in this case and it wasn't even about the McCanns.
It is absolute nonsense to suggest that the McCanns or their children are being threatened - 99% of those who do not believe the McCanns are normal people who conduct themselves with the same courtesy and civility as they would in the real world. Sky, or whoever is the source of this story, has picked out 1% of the online commentary on the McCann case, and remarks by the way, that none of the recognised Madeleine forums would ever tolerate. It in no way represents the majority of people who do not believe the McCanns.
You must be feeling like one of those biblical preachers Mr. Brunt, telling the masses that there was an old guy in the sky watching their every movement. It might have worked in those days Mr. Brunt, but the British public now have Google and Joana Morais.
