SONIA POULTON ON LBC - SHOULD MCCANN FILES BE SHELVED?
For those struggling to download the above, it is a debate between Sonia Poulton and former detective John O'Connor - the question: Why has Madeleine received more police assistance than any other missing child, and should the investigation continue.
Sonia spoke first. She agreed the case of missing Madeleine is extraordinary, explained that she is making a film/documentary about the case, and urged listeners to go read the police files and information online. She has heard of new developments in the investigation that would point at the end being in sight.
John O'Connor began by placing the entire blame on the Portuguese police for wrongly assuming the parents were involved. He then goes on to tell us what martyrs the parents are, and how their endeavours (dodgy detectives) provided mountains of evidence and information that Operation Grange have spent 4 years ploughing through (Oh yeah, lol), hence the long delay.
Kerry Needham, by contrast, did not have the 'resources' the McCanns had, ergo, all the evidence has been lost, and re-opening her case would be akin to chasing shadows. Unlike Operation Grange who are not chasing shadows, but are chasing genuine spotty men, ugly men and smelly men presumably.
Sonia closes the debate by mentioning that a trailer for her forthcoming documentary will be released in October on the anniversary of Brenda Leyland's death - make sure you listen to the very end to hear it :)
