Even when the McCanns win, they lose. Karma. No enlightened 21st century citizen wants to see books burned, the thought of it sends shudders down everyone's spines. All the McCanns' efforts to bury the truth have had the opposite effect, they only had to google 'Streisand' before they began their ill advised quest, it would have saved them a fortune and maybe even their reputations. Ce la vie. There were no triumphant speeches on the steps of Lisbon Court from Gerry and Kate and no congratulatory messages of support from all those prominent friends and journalists, just a chavvy gutterfest from their number one fan Antonella Lazzeri in the Sun.
The McCanns quickly picked up on Amber Alert - is it a good thing? I don't know, its a good way of collecting every new born baby's DNA, and a good way to enforce stricter border controls and keep track of the population. As for finding missing kids, hard to tell. Apparently enough children go missing every year to fill a large inner city comprehensive, yeh, who knew?
This book burning triumph of the McCanns can and should be condemned by free thinkers, those who care passionately about Freedom of Speech. There is a malevolent force at the heart of this 'child' abduction case, a force that is ruthlessly pushing to restrict Freedom of Speech everywhere, online especially. They have already succeeded in keeping The Truth of the Lie from the UK, and made an example of an innocent member of the public who dared to criticise them. Right now, they are being financially rewarded for their book burning, journalist jailing, pursuits while a decent detective who has never faltered in his duty to the victim, is forced to hand over all his worldly goods to the former suspects! How obscene is that?
Instead of answering or confronting the allegations made against them, the parents have ducked, dived and dodged the questions and the lie detectors. Their church going and medical professions should be enough, they are very much up there in the 'how dare the plebs' zone, the God Complex in action.
They have begged the world again and again for help and cash (especially cash), yet they didn't publicise Smithman (they couldn't afford it, £4m not enough) and wouldn't take part in the Scotland Yard reconstruction. The only thing they enter with any degree of enthusiasm, is litigation with the promise of a fat pay cheque for their Fund (to be spent as they wish).
Meanwhile, all criticism of them must be stamped out. Examples must be made, 'trolls' (now officially all non McCann believers) must be tracked down and placed in a dock before a Judge. This is the Britain of Gerry McCann, Jim Gamble and every arse licking politician and journalist who dances to the McCann tune. Before you vote next week, ask your prospective MP if they will pushing for a crackdown on the internet trolls, sheriff style and news stories censored by those with the biggest coffers? Ask if they agree with books being removed from shelves and burned?
I have written to Harriet Harman and Yvette Cooper. I haven't received a reply from either of them, and don't really expect to, but if they get in, I will be watching their child protection initiatives with great interest. I would especially like to see if they are planning any more dawn raids on the public Operation Ore style (again).
Support Freedom of Speech. Support Goncalo Amaral, the only man standing up to this huge injustice.
