Tania Cadogan, the batshit crazy, right wing apostle of Peter Hyatt has reported back on that creepy meeting:
Firstly, statement analysis is not a recognised science, there is no quick, sure fire way of establishing guilt on words alone, the claims are outlandish and ridiculous given the complexity of semantics.
Hobs claims in Court, 'the analyst is classed as an expert' - the typo and clumsy wording indicates deceit. Anyone can be classed as an expert in Court if that is what they call themselves. See the evidence of Alan Pike, psychologist to the McCanns. These detectives, psychologists, social workers and the like (how unethical) went over the interview with one aim, to see if there was evidence of sexual abuse or not. Hobs then claims the McCanns spoke freely using their own personal internal dictionary. Actually they didn't. They were being interviewed on camera for a national news channel - their language and behaviour could not have been more fake, or strained. Can she not hear the nervous tremble in Kate's voice?
They concluded at the end of their 6 hour (ye Gods) meeting, that there was evidence of sexual abuse. This group of experts, supposedly professionals, have reached a conclusion without ever having met any of the people they are discussing and knowing little if anything about the case. They certainly seem to have overlooked the fact that this is a live criminal investigation and the way in which their 'analysis' will affect the innocent people involved.
Peter Hyatt is using this case to sign gullible people up to his online 'lie detection' course. Kudos to him on his business plan, but it is wrong on every level to go around accusing people of child abuse based on their words alone.
As for doors, windows, hygiene etc, all indicated for sex. What a load of rubbish. The doors, windows etc, were important because they were crucial to the abduction story! Kate found the window open, that's how she know Maddie had gone. She was also trying to establish just how normal and ordinary that evening was - hence the jammies, the story telling, the tooth brushing. That is the usual routine in homes with young children.
The 'treats' were separate to the crisps and biscuits so were probably sedatives, conclude this little gathering of 'experts'. Seriously, these parents gave their children vile tasting tablets and told them they were treats? That's what they came up with?
In response to a comment on 'Embedded Confessions'.
Thank you for your comment 00:16. Like yourself I found Hyatt's statement analysis absolutely compelling. But if Mr. Hyatt had any form of professional integrity, he would keep his expertise on child sexual abuse in this case to himself as most professionals do. He will not be discussing Child A, or Child B, he will be discussing very real kids who's names are known by way too many on the internet. He has no Doctorate, but ffs, first do no harm!
If anyone close to the McCann family read my blog, I hope they will constantly reassure those kids that these creepy sexual allegations are coming from, to use Kate's words, a very small percentage, of frankly, very unpleasant people. People who, for whatever reason, believe there is a nasty undercurrent of deviant sex that permeates our society. My 'instant summation' of them, is that they have lived very sheltered lives. Girls, and indeed boys (perhaps more so), just wanna have fun, and I'm talking about the grown up variety, and with each other. And for most people having fun doesn't include children's bedrooms, or a gimp costume and a horse whip. It usually consists of getting drunk, flirting outrageously and confessing to having sex between stations with someone who's name you didn't quite catch.
I just don't buy into the 'fact' that there are secret little cliques of child molesters and wife swappers living, working and sharing their family photos with registered sex offenders. It just doesn't ring true, and I speak as someone who has led the opposite of a sheltered life - I was always up for a party! I also had a tendency to corrupt and lead astray, almost everyone I worked with and for. In retrospect, most were quite right to sack me, I would have brought to them to bankruptcy.
Unfortunately, our society stills carries the legacy of News of the World headlines. It brings back happy memories of Sunday mornings leering at all the smut and filth going on in the lives of the rich and famous, whilst tucking into a bacon sarnie. The reality is, it was mostly news fodder for the plebs 1984 style, with the bonus of great opportunities to blackmail those in power. Eg. closet homosexuals and those with a penchant for a good lashing at the local massage parlour. There was a time when a tabloid front page could ruin lives.
This century's witches are the Paedophiles. We are all pretty much agreed, we hate them the most. However, because the majority of us find the subject just too yucky, those with the least amount of knowledge and their own agenda, get to make the batshit crazy rules. People daren't take pictures at the school nativity play, and youngsters are being registered as sex offenders for sending their own pictures to themselves.
The hysteria around the 'P' word is based on something that isn't real. A sort of updated bogeyman the authorities want to protect us from. The truth is, hardly anybody sees children as sexual, even if they are wearing badly applied lipstick and mummy's high heels. As darn right cute and scrumptious little ones might be, playing itsy, bitsy spider over and over and begging and pleading with the little tyrant to go to sleep, can break even the strongest spirit. I used to go and lock myself in the bathroom as soon as daddy got home, screaming, you fecking take over! I would then lay in the bath plotting murder whilst listening to the strains of Maria Callas singing One Fine Day!
As for all the red flags. I can imagine the Gaspers were more shocked than most when they heard of Maddie's disappearance, simply because they knew them personally. Trauma tends to unleash the wilder side of our imaginations, we are in a state where it is easy to make mountains out of molehills. I expect Dr. Gasper (the Mrs) spent many tormented nights asking herself if she knew something, anything. A good detective would quickly be able to discern between rational statements and those given with confirmation bias. Common sense dictates we should keep an open mind.
As for the other 'indicators', words, as demonstrated by Peter Hyatt, are open to interpretation. All and any discussions around the 'P' word are deemed peculiar. Society has made it so taboo, nobody knows anything about it, and dare not speak it's name. Anyone discussing the topic without demands for blood, is seen as an appeaser, whilst those flinging a rope over the hanging tree are applauded. Rational discussion is virtually impossible.
What is blatantly clear and beyond question, is the McCanns and their friends went out of their way to enjoy the ADULT side of that holiday. That is, the sports during the day and the relaxed grown up conversation in the evening. They were passing their kids over to 'strangers' at every opportunity. And I don't blame them for that! Those of us, who are honest, wept buckets over the nights out we missed because of our kids. When we are thirty something, we are at the height of our need to socialise and mix with our peers, but we are tied to gogglebox or the company of just one other (who we may or may not, want to attack with an ice pick), and crying out for some stimulation of the brain!
The biggest, and some might say, proven allegation against the McCanns and their friends, is neglect. Neglect is the word they have been fighting for nearly 10 years, because it implicates all of them. And it is a serious enough criminal charge on it's own, without dragging in one of the rarest group crimes known to society. They have never admitted neglect in any way, shape or form. On the contrary, they succeeded in convincing, almost everyone, that their form of childcare that night was within the bounds of responsible parenting. The parents statements are littered with key words and tells, even the untrained, can pick out the McCanns' priorities. 'We hope for a successful outcome for ourselves..... and err, Madeleine'. Madeleine's outcome cannot be changed - it's already happened.
Paedophiles are, by the heinous nature of their crimes, very secretive 00:16, there is always the danger that they will be strung up from the nearest hanging tree by an angry mob, especially in areas with a high volume of British tourists. They don't sit around a table discussing their darkest fantasies with their mates and people they hardly know. What they do goes on behind locked and bolted doors. I actually cringed and slunk down in my chair as Richard Hall demonstrated the knob in mouth action and nipple twiddling, that may have been the point for me, where all credibility went out the window.
Any kind of sense, common or otherwise, would beg the question, why would a group of attractive, bright, highly sociable and competitive adults, want to shut themselves away with the kids (for which there is no evidence whatsoever) to do, gawd knows what with them? I don't even want to go there.
For the wannabe statement analysts out there, the clue was in Kate's 'we were really into each other'. That is, they were doing what every thirty something longs to do - they were enjoying the company of their peers rather than trapped in the apartment with demanding toddlers playing what they want to play and fending off tantrums.
We cannot interpret anything from the CATs reference number! It tells us nothing other than a box was ticked. The pact of silence I agree flags up deception, but there are many good and valid reasons for deception outside of the 'P' word.
Photos, where Madeleine is 'objectified' is a whole new area for debate. Sometimes a spoon is just a spoon. For most of us, the pictures look perfectly normal, we don't see any 'signs' and actually think it quite cruel that some people spend so much of their time looking for them. As if they can solve the mystery by spotting a displaced elbow. As for the way in which Maddie ate ice cream being some sort of signal to perverts - now that's creepy.
It's been nearly 10 years, where arguably, the McCanns have lived under constant scrutiny. The idea that all these institutions would have left all these children at risk is unthinkable. And it should be born in mind that the ones being hurt the most by these cruel and frankly disgusting, allegations, are those living children linked to this case through no fault of their own. It is for good reason that many of the antis are seen as 'haters'.
Having lived through the trauma of standing in a witness box having my parents accused of heinous crimes, my heart goes out to them. I came away almost broken, many who went through the same experience went on to commit suicide. It is possibly one of the cruellest forms of torment. As illustrated when I flew off the handle with Bennett when he insulted my mother.
I find the idea of a group of 'experts' discussing and accusing these named parents of child sexual abuse, absolutely abhorrent! Especially as they talking about a live criminal investigation, and worse those children involved are reaching an age where access to the internet is becoming easier. How would anyone feel, at the age of 11/12, if a group of 'experts' held a public debate on whether your mummy and daddy had abused you? These people clearly have no moral boundaries, let alone common sense. And I am not saying that as defender of the McCanns, I am saying it as a wake up call to those who have crossed that moral and ethical line when making fanciful accusations against these parents. Do they honestly believe their 'research' is helping those kids?
All those who genuinely care about Madeleine, should show equal care towards her brother and sister, those who are and will be, affected by their ill chosen words. That they so casually discard the feelings of those children, says more about their own motives, and they are not altruistic. Justice for Madeleine mustn't come at any cost. Rational, intelligent people know this inherently. They think about the effect their words may have on others. As Maya Angelou said far more eloquently than I, it is never forgetting the way those words made you feel.
I may not be fighting for justice for Madeleine, in the sense of researching and 'exposing' the intimate lives of those poor sods unfortunate enough to be named in this case and making accusations against them. But I am fighting, in my own way, to keep discussion about this case in perspective and within the realms of reality. I see this case, and the way in which it has progressed, as a huge learning curve, it has, if you like, as it has opened my eyes to so much in our society that is cruel, and dare I say it, just downright evil. Look out much Chilcott revealed, yet our MPs just voted overwhelming not to bring any charges. If we look back at the Blair administration, how far up (or down) would be the mysterious case of one missing child by on cover up scale? Especially at a time when his new best buddy Dubya, was scooping up suspects and subversives from all over the globe and sending them off to enjoy the sado/masochist delights of Guantanamo Bay? More sado, than masochist it must be said. It is not child abuse that is rotting society from the inside out, it is greed and lust for power.
Having said all that, my own quest for justice (staying online) is threatened by my beloved laptop nearing it's end of days! I'm already losing volumes every time I inadvertently pull the charger out, and the keys look as though they have been trodden on by a herd of elephants. I learned to type on a 'manual' and pound the keys like a psychotic Beethoven, or on occasion, a particularly flamboyant conductor of an orchestra. I call it exercise, lol. But I jest, if you enjoy my blog and want to make a small contribution to the piano on which I will write my next Masterpiece, please feel free to use the donation button!
