FORSOOTH HIDEHO! - UPDATE SUNDAY 13/12/15

UPDATE SUNDAY 13/12/15

Bennett and Verdi's fiendish plans provide me with no end of merriment on a Sunday morning. 
 
Bennett is now producing evidence that I am a pro in disguise, no less, a sneaky double agent, confirmed by my failure to spit, swear and carry a pitchfork.  He is building a case by providing evidence of my kind words, no dastardly compassionate remark will remain unturned. 
 
The message is clear Mr. B.  In order to disbelieve the McCanns, you must hate and disrespect them, and if Mr. B finds any evidence of kindness or decency in any of your posts, past and present, you will be exposed and shamed.  Get it! You certainly won't be allowed in the inner circle.  For that you will need a white hood, rudimentary woodwork skills, a few 10 by 2's and a large box of matches. You may also have to supply a cup of your blood. 
 
'It's nothing but a random selection of words thrown together for effect' says Verdi.  Well deh!  It is an example of Mr. Bennett's copying and pasting skills at it's best, especially when he is going for a guilty without trial verdict.  It goes without saying, there is nothing he has selected that I am ashamed of. 

My assumed literary prowess is a dangerous weapon when in the WRONG hands proclaims Verdi.  Like giving a loaded weapon to a child.  I am not sure if he/she is cussing God for not giving him/her such a weapon, or cussing the likes of me for having it.  Either way, I'm kinda flattered and feeling a bit like Mozart to Bennett's Salieri. Now there's something to put your teeth in for Verdi!  ha ha 
 
In any event, I am putting out the wrong message!  It is not enough to disbelieve the McCanns, you must hate them with a passion and you must be prepared to pry into the lives of anyone vaguely connected to them without question.   
 
This case is not about the mysterious death of a child, the injustice of our Government interfering in a criminal investigation in Portugal, the evil pursuit of an ex detective, or the sinister way in which people with great power used the name of Madeleine to usher in new laws on Freedom of the Press, new powers to control the internet and a new bogeyman to frighten the plebs. 

The more discerning McCann sceptics are still beavering away on the shutters, Smithman, the last photo and butler in the pantry with the candlestick. They will only discuss the files.  I think we best leave them to it!








UPDATE 12/1215

I see Tony Bennett has been beavering away to find evidence that proves, err, that I am not now nor have I ever been a 'hater' or a 'pitchforker'.  Why thank you Mr. Bennett, that is what I have been saying all along! 

He can't find any spite or nastiness from myself towards the parents, nor can he find libellous accusations of murder, paedophilia, swinging sex parties, cloning or gawd knows what else, because there aren't any!  (honesty and integrity)

I haven't stated categorically what happened on that night, because, err, how the feck would I know?  I wasn't there and I'm not a detective.  Back in the real world, I accept that I am no more than an onlooker and I find the idea of running a counter investigation to the police, ludicrous.  It is also creepy and sinister to pry into the lives of strangers online, but that doesn't stop them either.  They crossed the line from people concerned with justice for a small child, to a mob of vigilantes seeking victims to 'research' a long time ago. 

What exactly do these people hope to do with all their 'research'?  I doubt they will be called as expert witnesses for the prosecution - though the idea of Bennett being strapped to a trolley Hannibal Lector like and wheeled into a Courtroom is quite an amusing daydream. 

Realistically, all these theorists can get out of this case, will be a book (or several volumes) and a documentary (or several volumes).  The donations side never really took off.  There will undoubtedly be an unholy scramble to publish books once Amazon lift their embargo, there are many writers who have devoted a lot of time to this case, myself included, who may or may not write books of their own. It will be fiercely competitive, with those believing they have the divine right to the top spot because a)they have sacrificed the most and b)they have done the most 'work', thrashing about on the floor screaming 'its not fair'.  Some have started already as we can see from a quick glance at CMoMM (the cesspit), lol.   

I will make no bones about it.  I want to write to Kate's book. If she reads my blog, and I am pretty sure she does, she will get the message that I am trying to understand the reasons behind everything that has happened.  My interest in this case has nothing to do with hate. And again, thank you Mr. Bennett for confirming that.   
 
__________________________

Oh forsooth Lizzie HideHo, have you partaking in the fruit of the vine?  Your gushing tribute to Mr. Anthony Bennett fair soured me cornflakes! 

No one doubt's Mr. Bennett's Methodist work ethic.  He clearly 'works' from dawn to dusk, but tis the content of that 'work' that causes problems for myself and others.  He has not outed, exposed or shamed you (yet), but he will. You are female and blonde (a tool of the devil) and there is probably an entire filing cabinet devoted to you. Myself and Sonia have several, lol. 

The work of Mr. Bennett is to bring misery to others.  Where is the honour in that?  His actions in the early days of this case. when no-one knew what was going on, were abominable.  He was hounding and persecuting Kate and Gerry McCann in the same way, he has hounded and persecuted people all his adult life, take a look at his entry on Wiki.  The reasons for his involvement in this case are questionable to the say the least - he set up a 'Foundation' using the name of the missing child ffs! If 'GoFundMe' had been around at that time, he would have been minted. 

Mr. Bennett doesn't so much want Justice for Madeleine, as he wants fire, brimstone and himself as the worshipful head of a new loony justice league with a paypal button.  He, and others like him, use his 20,000 hits a day forum, to put the victims of their stalking on public trial.  That some of their victims are witnesses in a highly sensitive, ongoing police investigation, should outrage all of us.  It's just not cricket Lizzie, can you not see that? 

These witnesses are being investigated, put on trial, and pronounced guilty on a public forum where they have no right of reply.  That they have been able to maintain a dignified silence in the face of all those smears, is a tribute to their good characters, they have had much to contend with.   

Some antis, like yourself HideHo have become so entrenched in looking at the finer details of this case, that they have lost all sense of reason.  Restricting all discussion to the files and nothing else, will do that.  We have no right to select targets from this case and then to analyse their lives and their motives.  No moral right that is.  Just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should. 

The people that you, Bennett and the cesspit are scrutinising, are very real.  They are private individuals drawn into this case through no fault of their own. People who have done their public duty and co-operated with the police. They have never sought publicity and they have never sold their stories.  The message is loud and clear, they want to be left alone. They don't want to join in your games. 

As for Mr. Bennett's recent  Express victory.  I didn't see an apology so much as a correction, however, I will happily take that back if TB gets a thank you from Goncalo. 

I have much respect for your videos HideHo, but not very much for your judgement at the moment.  Sometimes in trying to do the right thing for everyone, you end up tied in knots.  Mr. Bennett's motives are not altruistic, they are sinister and malevolent.  Selecting victims from the net and putting them on public trial is evil in every language and on every continent Lizzie. That is why CMoMM is a cesspit HideHo, because it has deemed our public services and our democracy worthless, and set up a Court of its own.

    1. Why then I wonder is she a Moderator? How to moderate when absent?
      I can't watch her videos due to the mostly, maudlin music. If I mute, then the occasional speech is missed.

      I'm admiring of her work as at least much stuff is catalogued. Oh how we wish we'd saved things from the early days.

  2. You are being too kind Lorna, HiDeHo has made a public statement fully endorsing the 'work' of Bennett and indeed paying tribute to it. Effectively, she is standing shoulder to shoulder with him, putting her name alongside his. Perhaps she should ask Terry Lubbock how that turned out for him.

    If she has given that glowing reference without being up to date and without doing the research, then she is very naïve. The only thing we have of substance in this life is our good name, that is the legacy we will leave our children and our descendants. HideHo has officially declared herself a supporter of a man who may well face criminal charges when this case comes to an end. A big mistake imo.

      She has been standing shoulder to shoulder with bennett, putting her name next to his as a moderator on CMOMM for months now. But because she has written yet another load of rubbish - this time praising bennett - you have changed your mind and now call her naive because she has not done research.

      She has never done research - she just posts lies, misinformation and libel. I believe you have now witnessed it yourself.

    4. I tried the 22 reasons, as in my daughter is now an adult. But still miss her childhood and my role.

      I got to 11 then got bored. First was waiting.

      OMG the waiting. Outside ballet, Gym, swimming, and so on. Us parents seem to spend half our lives waiting. Engine running when cold, talking to the mum in the next car.

      No mention of Madeleine and her swimming certificate etc.

      I've said it before, Madeleine did not live at their home.

    5. Sorry, my post should have come after the Mail Online further down where the McCanns stated 22 reasons why they miss Madeleine.

      What a ridiculous ask anyway. Who could quantify their missing/dead child in 22 ways.
      If anyone asked me such a thing of my missing/dead child, I'd tell them to go take a hike.
      One would think that pair would have done so too.

    6. I agree SoJ, it sounds like an ill thought out essay question.

      I tried to do the same as yourself and think about the things I miss about my kids when they were little. I can't think of a 'shopping list' per se, but I'm grinning from ear to ear as I think about the funny things they said and did.

  3. Yes, I see what you mean.

    I feel that Tony still deserves praise for some of the things he has done but lately he has lost his way, in my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No praise from me Lorna, and none from Goncalo Amaral by the look of it. Unfortunately, Tony's work 'the Madeleine Foundation' provided the harassment evidence the McCanns needed in their civil action against GA.

      He has caused untold damage to this case, beginning with ALL doubters and sceptics being labelled as cranks, haters and pitchforkers. At the moment he is doing his utmost to derail any potential future trial. He doesn't consider the consequences of what he does - he has no moral or social boundaries and that has damaged the justice campaign throughout.

      Apart from Bennett being found guilty of 'conduct unbecoming a solicitor', the father of Stuart Lubbock distanced himself from Bennett when he launched his book about his son's death. He also wound up the 'Trust' and stated Bennett would no longer be representing him. Bennett's Wiki entry is a CV filled with homophobia, islamophobia and hate crime, all his victims, including the McCanns, have my sympathy. They had no option but to take legal action against him, he was, effectively, sitting in a tree outside their home peering into their lives with a long lens camera.

      Note, there are no tributes or thank yous from people he has 'helped' in the past, but there are plenty of regrets, recriminations and legal actions.

  4. I agree with Lorna - I don`t believe Lizzie would have seen the treatment newbies to that forum have received, particularly from Attila the Hun. She would not have seen how nastily people were treated if they contradicted Mr. Bennett - and does she actually know why Candy and Freedom and 100s of other members left in disgust and how they have been hounded since? I don`t believe she does. But if she does, it`s a trait of that forum she wishes to keep detached from - she has never joined in with it. She just wants a platform to discuss her work. I really don`t think she knows the full story. There are still a handful of decent posters on there that remain impartial.

  5. Brampton sucks and her investigation skills are partially dangerous and mostly facile. Head south and get to the lake woman, try Bronte on Sunday afternoon, you may find much better opportunities for lateral thinking and greater clarity of mind.

    "Julie likes dogging", that's what the odious creature Stillsloppingout (sic) said on that driving instructors' sick site. Here's a clue: I know who you are liar of age and fake actress.

    The truth's been staring them in the face for nigh on two years and still they can't see it.

    Fuvk 'em, evil naive vultures, and as for the blinkered martyr and prophet, Judas Bennett, he's lucky I've been too ill to deal with his childish pejorative and wholly untrue remarks.

    The Wigan Wum, OK whatever, I'm still 100% correct and YOU LOT, purleeese, busy Lizzie believes the cleaner was actually a cleaner. LOLTL.

    Does the sycophantic fool also believe Dave's bro is married to the non-English Donna Hill? Well PM the Sherlock of the net fell for it.

    Here's what they are: heartless busybodies with the investigation skills of inept fishwives.

    Any one of you is welcome to sue me at your leisure, including the fake media, lying Leicester and the clueless dingbats on the net, do your worst cap wringers and false idol worshippers.

    And Grime and the rapist pig farmer, YOU TWO chancers are also under investigation, and Andy Redwood I've not decided what to do with you yet, were you operating on behalf of the childern or investigating a lost oggy?

    Ditto goes for the rest of the death inducers, Gamble your card is marked, f**k with me again if you dare, simpleton.

    I will end you with my mind if you so much as think of one more stunt with psycho Swan, malleable Martin and our Kay.

    And Aquila (dumb-ass name, obviously), back off from torturing people who suffer from mental illness, Ros especially. Bluebag, don't make me teach you a legal lesson, and Verdi, please floss and use mouthwash - you sick loon.


    Finally, leave Kate Healy and her children alone, if you must blame someone, after all the buck stops at leadership level, blame two people in particular: evangelical Baggott and the most unappealing death stager and effete blade of grass, Foy.

    OK kiddywinks.


    From the heart, Julie Harrison, hugs and karma ...ALWAYS. XXX

    P.S. Mason, you are going to be the most divine intervention fun of all, you aren't now, and you never will be a match for an eight-year-old pathway building sagacious soul.

  6. Could not agree more, Ros. I thought precisely the same - certainly no apology, and if that was some kind of vindication for Senhor Amaral, then I can hardly wait for Richard Desmond's 'Biographical Tribute to a Most Honoured Portuguese detective' (I won't state the complete title, I prefer understatement lol).

      Julie is not being treated as a freakshow, how insulting btw, and no-one is laughing at her. Denying her a voice may tip her over the edge, I don't want to make that call. You are saying that if anything happens it would be my fault, that I am somehow preventing her from seeking professional help. Wtf? how do you make a leap like that?

      And yes, I am intrigued. Julie is throwing in all sorts of snippets that link to various of aspects on this case - she may even be trying to tell us something. I just don't know, and neither do you.

      I am not in a position to make the call on what Julie might do, why do you think you are? As I said before, if someone was making threats towards me I would want to know about it.

      Delete
    7. 21:38. No I haven't reported them to the police because they are generic rather than specific. I did in fact report threats I had received to Operation Grange a few months before Brenda was targeted, but I have yet to hear back from them. I doubt the police would be interested, and ultimately, it is one troubled woman recovering from a stroke and probably quite harmless.

      To be honest, I have no idea how seriously to take these threats, if they are indeed threats. The 'taking down' Julie refers to, is imo metaphoric. I am guessing she has been a member of an inner circle, maybe the Madeleine Foundation, or maybe even with Team McCann and knows where the bodies are buried (metaphorically speaking). The MF is my current front runner, due to Bennett asking someone to take questions about Rothley Pillow to the members' lounge. Rothley Pillow is a female with a northern accent who has been having a mental breakdown on twitter for a number of years. She also knows Bennett very well. And Rothley Pillow knows the identities of all the original members of the MF, which is probably uncomfortable for those who are so camera shy.

      RP however, doesn't like me and she has different fixations to Julie, so possibly not. Her fondness for Kate Healy puts her in the Team McCann camp and that opens up all sorts of other possibilities. Everyone closely connected with this case will be suffering all sorts of pangs and anxieties at the moment. The winding down of Operation Grange is not a good sign for those who are guilty. It would be quite understandable if one (or several) of them cracked.

      The Team will divide, it is inevitable, probably back into their clans. Each family will want to protect their own. Julie is protective of Kate Healy, that much is clear.

      Delete
    8. Meow NT, I am not pretending to be noble, Julie has an interesting story to tell (we think), and I and my readers want to hear it. And the majority of my readers are not mean spirited, we want to help Julie if we can.

      The idea that I am endangering Julie's life is absurd, and a bit dramatic, Julie is reaching out, she has not shut herself off. I can tell you as a manic depressive that having something to live for, even if it is just getting your own back on some creep in a forum with a witty one liner, can save you from the brink. Too many people are isolated or worse, unable to communicate with those they share a bed with.

      People who have reached the stage that Julie has, are crying out for attention. They are ranting because no-one is listening to them. You think I should say to Julie, no, I'm not listening to you either? And ffs don't go to Not Textusa, he nobly refuses to have anything to do with you.

      Julie may indeed be having a game with us. Who knows? But if she is, so what? It makes no difference to our lives one way or the other. We can discuss this or we can discuss the shutters, the curtains, the last photo (yawn) for the next 8 years or we can toss in a curved ball now and then. This is a not a forum that locks a thread just as things start hotting up. As if!

    The main reason why it might have a degree of integrity, is because as far as i know JATYK, have made no reference to it. Which is odd considering they monitor and repeat comments from here, then ridicule almost immediately. No mention, i dont think.

    Also the way TB dismissed it straight away and came out with some nonsense that she rang him up. End of according to him ( funny how he accuses others ringing him up also with absolutely zero proof). Also hes again rubbishing it.

    I dont know. It sounds rubbish but as said above then there could be some truth in it, due solely to reactions or no reactions. Interesting regardless. However i wish Julie spits it all out.

    1. They wouldn't have got this far had it not been for all the interference from other interested parties, such as government, the best lawyers etc. All the other families you've mentioned were only interested in finding out what happened to their children, unlike the McCann's who from the very start of all this planned to make as much money as possible out of their missing daughter. They must be the most shallow uncaring parent's to have ever walked gods earth. I'm sick to the back teeth of hearing people say "the poor parent's" they're not poor, and if they were let them sell their mansion and fund their own fake search! It's about time someone told them where to get off.

Ros - re Anonymous 01.42 above who said 'Veniviedivici' detached himself from Bennett, you might want to know that Veniviedivici is the bloke who many years ago threatened to go to the McCanns and lob a Molotov cocktail at their house. So I don't think that on this occasion Bennett will worry too much that he 'detached' himself from him lol

  22. 10:37. I have a feeling this all goes back to the 3 Arguidos and the original 'hard core' of McCann antis. People like Bennett, Butler, Jill Havern, Bonnie Braes, Rothley Pillow and the inner circle of the cesspit. They used to hold meetings at each others homes and in public halls under the Madeleine Foundation banner. They invited Goncalo Amaral to one, but wise old fox that he is, he didn't attend.

    I have no idea if what you are saying about Veni is true, he is welcome to reply. I tend to think however, if it were true, the threat would have been produced in one or more of the civil trials against GA as evidence of harassment.

  24. Hi Ros, Veni is Sean Hyland, here's a link https://ordinisrubricrucis.wordpress.com/tag/sean-hyland/
    In these two articles Hyland/Veni is described as 'vile' and had to make a public apology to the McCanns. If I think back to 3As days, I think it was Bennett who rapidly detached himself from Veni, who called himself Laffin Assassin in those days - not so funny today

  25. Talking of old Madeleine Foundation days, does anyone remember that Inside Out programme about him where he was filmed wheeling a trolley load of leaflets around with him in Bristol, basically saying that Maddie wasn't abducted? The programme did an excellent hatchet job on him, making him look a prize old fool, and for ever after he was called 'The Trolley Man' or, more like 'Off his Trolley' Ha! Ha!
    P.S. Found it!

      So where is the thank you from Goncalo Amaral? Does GA appreciate what Anthony Bennett does for him? Did the harassment of the McCanns by the Madeleine Foundation help GA in the libel proceedings?

      It is significant that Goncalo Amaral has kept a 10ft barge pole between himself and Anthony Bennett, as I said before, he is a wise old fox.

    9. 21:30. We did discuss abduction at that meeting. I hadn't at that time passed the 'beyond reasonable doubt' stage, and I was being very careful in what I posted. So much so, that I am accused of being a 'pro' in the early days, lol. The simple fact is, I would not have been able to live with myself if I were adding to the pain of a grieving family while there was still a chance they were telling the truth. My stance changed once I reached the point of 'beyond reasonable doubt'.

      I expected Mr. Bennett to be 100% convinced. Not only was he publicly accusing the McCanns and involved in civil proceedings with them, but he had also taken direct action in the form of trying to get the twins put into care, leafleting their neighbours and running a Fund/Foundation in their daughter's name.

      I was shocked when he admitted that he still had doubts. How could he do the things that he was doing if he wasn't 100% certain of the parents' involvement?

      I'm afraid this defined his character for me and any thoughts I may have had of helping him, were gone in an instant.

      So in two and a half years it has paid bennett £2000.

    2. What a bizarre world this is that finances a man who makes a career out of persecuting people.

      A simple scan of Anthony Bennett's Wiki entry reveals a long record of his modus operandi. It is littered with Funds, Trusts, Foundations and books wot he wrote. I wonder what Terry Lubbock thinks of Mr. Bennett now?

      Those thinking of responding to these new requests for donations, should bear in mind that all the original translators and those reporting the true news stories to us from Portugal, did so for free. Joana Morais and Astro, who translated the entire police files for us, and Goncalo Amaral's book. Goncalo has never complained that his book is being read for free online.

      People like Nigel Moore (McCann Files, Pamalam, Only in America, Blacksmith, Pat Browne, etc, And heck, me too, none of us have felt the need to set up an organised foundation or a trust with annual membership fees, as if? lol. Nor do we want the names, addresses and personal financial details of those kind enough to read us.

      Foundations are usually set up for philanthropic reasons, to help deprived children, third world countries, science, education, etc. The Madeleine Foundation and this C.O.L.D. appeal, essentially helps one angry old man who some might describe a vexatious litigant.

      He is there for the thrill of the ride, he doesn't really care if he wins or loses, because if he cared he wouldn't keep pursuing lost causes. He keeps doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

      Some might say, he has a very costly addiction. Realistically, it is cheaper to be a compulsive gambler than a vexatious litigant. I know this first hand, because as a legal secretary I saw clients who would literally not stop until they had lost every penny. And the noble legal profession did nothing to dissuade them.

      What exactly were the annual fees for? Issuing Writs, taking private actions against the McCanns? Costs and expenses in organising meetings, hours spent on social media? Postage? Our Portuguese friends took on the gargantuan task of translating the police files. Cost? No charge.

      Do those defending Mr. Bennett's actions seriously think he should have been allowed to carry on? He was handing out leaflets to the family's neighbours ffs.

      Those thinking of donating to this new appeal, would do just as well handing the money to the sweaty guy at the roulette wheel. Or better still, to a homeless person or a refugee.

  35. "Mediated outcome
    6. The complaint was not resolved through direct correspondence between the parties. IPSO therefore began an investigation into the matter.

    7. The newspaper published the following correction in its Amplifications and Clarifications column:

    On the 29 April 2015 we published a headline on the front page which said “Maddy detective did lie about death cover up claim”. We would like to make it clear that there was no determination by the Portuguese court that Mr Amaral lied. In fact what the court decided was that Mr Amaral had breached the McCanns’ right to reputation and ordered him to pay damages to them.

    8. The complainant said these actions resolved the matter to his satisfaction.

    9. As the complaint was successfully mediated, the Complaints Committee did not make a determination as to whether there had been any breach of the Code.

    Date complaint received: 05/05/2015
    Date complaint concluded by IPSO: 27/11/2015"

    1. Hi 08:37. In my opinion, it is the 'neglect' that binds them all together. The 'collective' decision.

      If the McCanns were to face charges of neglect, so too were the rest of the tapas group - they were all doing the same thing. As doctors they knew the enormity of child neglect charges and possible convictions. They would literally lose their livelihoods.

      Why on earth would they risk everything by claiming they had neglected their small children, if they hadn't?

      In order for all of them walk away scot free they had to convince the authorities (and the world) that their form of child minding fell within the bounds of reasonable parenting. And in their heads, it did. None of them were remorseful, none made excuses, and within hours of Maddie going missing, even the great and good were saying 'doesn't everyone do it'?

      It was the kind of propaganda myth that Herr Goebbells would have been proud of. Ms. Kelly could barely contain herself from singing birds do it, bees do it.
      etc.

      On the night Maddie went missing, the first message the McCanns and their Tapas friends wanted to get out there, was that they hadn't done anything wrong. So much so, that they were already painting a picture with Madeleine's notebook, of how responsible they were being with their checks on the kids. ALL of their careers were at risk on the neglect issue alone.

      I know there are a number of people out there who argue that there was no neglect. Just can't see it myself, I've yet to see one reason why the other doctors would risk their livelihoods by admitting to a crime of neglect they had not committed.

      As for the second message, 'Find Madeleine', they released a cute toddler picture that bore little resemblance to the almost 4 year old child who was missing.

      Delete
    2. It's opinion of many that it should have been deemed neglect 10;40 but in the eyes of the Portuguese law it wasn't.How far could we take neglect if it had happened in the UK when you look back on the old Butlin's days where thousands of children were left in chalets while the parents drank the night away.A listening service isn't full proof.I am Pro McCann but have never condoned how any of them conducted themselves on that holiday.Do I believe the child had a genuine accident and they covered up.No I don't.I used to believe in the abduction theory but not now.My thoughts for a long time are that the child wondered out of that apartment.And either fell into the hands of evil or is laying somewhere never to be found again.

  48. ( YOUR WORDS )That is why CMoMM is a cesspit HideHo, because it has deemed our public services and our democracy worthless, and set up a Court of its own.

    Our public services and democracy ( ? ) ARE worthless and SOMEBODY has to chip away at the foundations. I see it won't be YOU since you are obviously trying to soften up Kate McCann to share a 'bewk' deal with her. No chance! She has access to proper writers.

    1. Ouch! So I'm not a proper writer :( Do you think my writing might improve if I styled myself like Jane Austin or Descartes?

      As for the proper writers used thus far, did they truly tell Kate's story? Where are they on social media fighting the McCanns' side? I have never seen any evidence of them, anonymously or in their own names, apart from the dire warnings about internet trolls from Summers and Swan, that resulted in the death of Brenda Leyland (lest we forget).

      Writers prepared to lie and sell out their own reputations are indeed purchasable, it all depends on the story you want to project. If you opt for fake again, then fake is what you will get.

      I am at an age, when I realise more and more how important our legacy is. 'Nothing beside remains, round the decay'* Legacies are not the sole domain of Kings, Presidents and pompous writers, they belong to each and everyone of us who lives and breathes. More so now - we all have easy access to a 'Room of One's Own'. I urge everyone to get writing, ANY story can be told, as long as it is told with honesty and integrity. Prior to enlightenment, I probably would have sold me granny and thrown in a child. I jest of course, when I began writing my own memoir, I had a bit of an awakening. I realised that it was not necessary to hurt others, in fact it would have been churlish and unkind.

      I began to see things from the perspective of those who had hurt me. I wanted to know what it was that made them act the way they did. I needed to understand the psychology behind the behaviour. People, like large blue whales, don't just lash out for the sake of it.

      My parents I forgave long, long ago. They were young immigrants struggling to find work and a home for us in days prior to 'Cathy Come Home' - I picture my 18 year old mum with 2 babies and my honest, hardworking dad, and I want to reach out and hug them.

      Writing a memoir gives you the opportunity to examine events from the past with a different perspective.

      The anger and (most of) the hurt is gone, and quite often we can't even remember the incident or event that sparked off the lifelong vendettas. It is a tragedy that brings a lump to my throat. Parents, children, siblings, cousins, taking vows never to speak again and carrying them through to the bitter deathbed end. Even murderers don't get such cruel sentences. Are their lives much improved by banishing the reprobates from the family get togethers? Are they better people for not knowing or acknowledging members of their bloodline who don't know how to behave properly? (what is properly btw? lol) (continues)

    2. And before my enemies leap with joy at this early Christmas present, the above is generic, sadly, I know too many people estranged from their families.

      But whilst I am in a quotes mood, Confucius sums it all up, 'when you set off on a journey of revenge, dig two graves'. Though revenge can be achieved, it only works if that revenge sits well with your conscience. Sometimes you have to stand up for yourself, and sometimes you have to defend your name.

      Writing a memoir can free you from your past. It also allows you to forgive yourself. You begin to see yourself as the immature, often naïve young person that you were. And, just as you would forgive your children, you forgive yourself. I once voted for Maggie Thatcher, I have to live with that (it ain't easy). I know people say, if I only knew then etc, myself included, everything would have been different. I know I wouldn't really have wanted that, because I wouldn't have had half as much fun!

      I urge all those with 'write memoirs' on their bucket lists, to start now! Go out and buy a big old (pretty) journal (I have OC Luv of Stationery Disorder) and write something in it every day!

      Write a letter to your grandchildren and your great children. In the future, people will want to know more and more about their own pasts, the roots they came from. I actually found an old picture of my Irish grandmother online, and I cannot tell you how amazing it was to find that.

    3. We don't have to write bestsellers, we don't have to publish our words or reveal them to anyone. There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a secret private world that allows us to escape harsh reality once in a while. Writing fiction is a great way to take a walk on the wild side without actually taking drugs and being swept off a burning building by Superman. It also allows you to bodyslam your enemies without breaking so much as a fingernail.

      When you see your problems written down, it has the same effect as saying them out loud to a highly trained counsellor. It allows us to get things back into perspective. In our minds, the problems run riot and wake us in the wee small hours because our bodies have gone into panic mode.

      Writing exorcises those demons, it provides an outlet, a way in which to explain ourselves. The truth is not many people have got the time to listen, and who can blame them. I once made the error of asking the office doom monger how she was, she had me in tears begging Scotty to beam me up!

      We all have stories to tell and we all crave attention. We can't physically nail our children to the couch while we tell them the family history, who did what to who, and how it all started with Abel killing Caine (or was it the other way round?). That's how 'give Granny another drink' started, anything to shut her up, hic!

      With memoirs, granny can tell the offspring all and everything she wants to, and they can read it at their leisure. Most families, if they are lucky, have a 'keeper of the family history', usually a female, a Matriarch, or a bride taking on a new family name.

      In the past only Royalty and the Aristocracy had records of their ancestors. That amazing 'legacy' is now available to all of us. We can tell future generations what life was like in the 21st Century. We don't have to go outside and bury a time capsule(though we probably should), we can simply keep a journal for them.

      But, best of all, we have a VOICE. The 'authorities' cannot ignore social media. For the first time in history, we have easy access to the 'Great and Good', they can no longer hide behind castle walls. Twitter is a leveller, no wonder 'proper' writers like Grace Dent refer to it as lawless.

      Twitter. Facebook and other social media has changed the class system almost as dramatically as WWI. The word of a pleb is just as valid as the word of the elite Ms. Dent.

      News is no longer confined to the borders of the UK, and many versions are available, not just those published by the BBC, Skynews and Fox. We no longer live in a Dickensian world where wars happen in lands too far away to make any difference to our lives. We are seeing the results of government policy directly on our doorstep.

      Not only are 'not proper' journalists getting the true stories to us, they are risking their lives to do so. I wonder if a 'not proper' journalist would have dealt with the Brenda Leyland in a different way to Martin Brunt?

    4. In all that waffle I forgot to address your point about chipping away at our public services and democracy 17:52.

      I don't want to chip away at them, I want to improve them! You suggest they should be brought down. Good heavens! What are you going to replace them with should you get the martial law you desire?

      What we have is not the best in the world, but it could be? Due to public pressure, those in authority have to treat all of us with respect. They cannot put their fingers in their ears because of our race, class, ethnicity or sexual persuasion. We are all now valid.

      The systems we have in place don't always work, that is why journalists and the interested public should keep the authorities on their toes. But setting out to destroy what already exists, is a little radical for me.

    1. Because it is human nature 19.00, reading about ourselves is irresistible, it is beyond our control.

      On top of which, Kate and Gerry have been at Defcon 4/5 since May 2007, they see danger everywhere (no way to live), and their tactics are seek and destroy.

      They have had to pre-empt every threat or perceived threat by crushing it in its infancy. However, it is an impossible goal, because they are now hugely outnumbered. They no longer have the public on their side, nor the funds to pay lawyers to watch social media 24/7. They desperately need a sensational headline to win back their support, and their enemies usually provide them.

      Kate and Gerry cannot ignore what people are saying about them on the net - and the idea that they don't use social media is ludicrous. There are many pictures of Gerry sat at his laptop in their PDL villa 'searching' for Maddie.

      I am in no doubt that Gerry and Kate read everything - in order to have control, you have to have information. It goes hand in hand. Who remembers the days before Operation Grange, when sightings of Madeleine made front page headlines. And who remembers how they always coincided with negative McCann stories?

      Sadly, the way their lives are now, Gerry and Kate have no option but to remain shackled to the internet. They are trying to protect their children, by removing from the net that which might upset them. They might just as well take a broom and sweep the sand off their local beach. The only thing that can protect their children (or indeed, any children) is the TRUTH, warts and all.

    3. 02:01 'I loik that' as Father Dougal might say!

      It takes some kind of megalomania to believe that you can control what people discuss about you on the internet. And the lawyers egging them on should be ashamed of themselves.

      It is indeed sad that the MCann children will read about their mum, dad and sister online, but that applies to any child and any parent. Princes William and Harry have had to read all sorts about Charles and Diana including allegations that their father was involved in their mother's death. So too the children of A-List actors, celebrities, politicians have seen their parents celebrated and torn to shreds. Now we all have access to social media, our children can read about us.

      Gerry and Kate's demands that everything negative written about them should be removed from the internet comes straight from cuckoo land. If we all had the time, inclination and funds, we too could employ lawyers to watch social media 24/7 in the hope of finding someone saying something nasty about us. If you were that way inclined, suing people could be a lucrative form of living.

      If it is possible to send shock waves up the kilt of the UK's ridiculous libel laws, then it is happening now. The antiquated scribblings of the bewigged legal eagles of the 19th Century have little relevance in this new age of instant information. Those who wield their right to be offended can and will spend the rest of their days in a Court room.

  51. Whatever or whoever Cristobell is, she is certainly not wearing any "disguises". She is the only "anti McCann" person that I bother to read. I personally don't agree that the McCanns had anything to do withe Madeleine's disappearance, but I respect the opinions of others. Cristobell's heart is in the right place. She is passionate about the life (or death) of this little girl, Madeleine McCann. The rest of the so called "antis" would never succeed in getting me to read their opinions ever again. They are malicious. So, whatever one may believe Cristobell is achieving, or not achieving; she is most certainly readable -even to someone like me, who doesn't agree with all her theories. We are adults, and should be able to debate this subject, without resorting to nastiness, which is something I've never seen Cristobell partake in.

    1. Many thanks for your kind words 13:14, much appreciated. There is very rarely any need for bad manners and name calling*, they are usually the last resort of those with limited communication skills.

      I welcome debate, especially with those who have issues with me - if they could keep a civil tongue, I am happy to answer any question. It is the reason I loved forums, I like to interact with others and hear different views and opinions. I have learned much over the years, not least, that censorship brings me out in hives. And that censorship is the result of the majority of members' fear of newbies and, gawd forbid, ideas that might make them think outside the box, keeps them way too tame for my liking.

      I am not ashamed, actually, I am proud to say, that I have often been persuaded by better arguments than my own. For me, very few things are set in stone. We are a rapidly evolving society, especially over the last two decades, where we have taken a giant leap. It is no longer about being born in a castle with a crown on your head, it's about the number of likes and followers you have on Facebook and Twitter. Everything is up for grabs, no silver spoons required.

      But I digress, I don't have any NEED to prove that I am right on anything, in fact my days are much improved when I learn something new and enlightening. In the early days, I actively looked out for signs to support the McCanns' abduction claims. For me it was a battle of conscience, I did not want to think what I was thinking! I'm afraid thus far, nothing has persuaded me to the contrary on the abduction story.

    1. I agree Andrew, the new Smithman quiz is embarrassingly crass.

      While the rest of us sing tidings of comfort and joy and peace and goodwill to all, Bennett has been working on who he can upset. His need to hurt others seems to go into overdrive at this time of year, as his ghastly Christmas Carol demonstrated.

      Now a quiz. Sheesh. The Smith family, the unfortunate witnesses to something of significance on the night Madeleine vanished, are once again being called liars, but he has done in a fun way, to capture the spirit of the season.

      What strange creatures inhabit the cesspit. The most popular thread graphically discusses the last moments of Madeleine 'cowering'. Begun by Wordsmith and potential Mrs Donald Trump, Hobs, it focuses on the tragedy of the little girl and it is designed to bring maximum pain to those who loved her. Especially curious pre teens.

      It achieves nothing and it proves nothing. Toddlers always run off and toddlers love to 'play out'. I remember carrying each of my own toddlers home, under my arm kicking, screaming and demanding the right to play out for longer. My first born used to call me a 'fat, fat fat' because he didn't have the vocabulary to put an expletive noun at the end - he does now, lol.

      I have to question the motives of these people who see sexual connotations in pictures of kids eating ice cream (ffs). And people who sit with a magnifying glass studying someone else's holiday pics looking for signs of misery.

      What do they hope to achieve? Their research merely establishes that they are a bunch of cranks and weirdos looking for reasons to be spiteful. It doesn't challenge the cover up or the shocking intervention of the UK authorities.

      What CMoMM fail to understand is that most people are not mean spirited. They don't want to kick a family when they are down and they find the idea of researching other people's private lives abhorrent.

      They have been locked in their stinking dungeon for so long that they have lost all sense of reason and logic. Their only remaining link to reality is their desperate need to remain anonymous. Their research and their discussion is ghoulish and in extremely poor taste. They know they have much to be ashamed of.

      Delete
  68. You're completely missing the point of the 'cowering' post. Why would Kate use the word, 'cowering'? By using it she reveals that Madeleine had cause to be crouching IN FEAR. At that point in the evening it would have been entirely reasonable to think that Madeleine had wandered or maybe was mischievously hiding in a yet undiscovered place. But no, Kate immediately brings fear into it so it's perfectly reasonable to discuss this slip of the tongue as far as I'm concerned.
    To say that CM0MM doesn't challenge the intervention of the UK authorities is absolute nonsense and you know it. Don't you think that Mr Bennett's FOI requests go some way to addressing this?

      From an earlier one of many bennett's FOI requests

      "DECISION

      Section 14 (1) - Vexatious or repeated requests

      Pursuant to the provisions of Section 14(1) of the Freedom of Information
      Act 2000 (the Act) I have decided to refuse your request as it has been
      deemed as a vexatious request.

      Under Section 14(1) of the Act, a public authority does not have to comply
      with vexatious requests. There is no requirement for a public interest
      test.

      You have made multiple requests for information relating to the Operation
      Grange investigation. You have also engaged in voluminous correspondence
      with the Operation Grange team all regarding this single investigation.

      You have been warned previously about the vexatious nature of these
      requests.

      The Act was designed to give individuals a greater right of access to
      official information with the intention of making public bodies more
      transparent and accountable.

      Whilst most people exercise this right responsibly, a few may misuse or
      abuse the Act by submitting requests which are intended to be annoying or
      disruptive or which have a disproportionate impact on a public authority.

      The Information Commissioner recognises that dealing with unreasonable
      requests can place a strain on resources and get in the way of delivering
      mainstream services or answering legitimate requests. Furthermore, these
      requests can also damage the reputation of the legislation itself."
