Shame on you ITV, you do a feature on the McCann case, and end it with no discussion allowed for 'Legal Reasons'. And I don't blame Holly and Phillip, they looked as aghast as their viewers felt. What are those Legal Reasons ITV, the threat of being sued by the UK's top lawyers? Have the McCanns quite literally purchased silence with the money people donated for a search? People can question the President of the United States, but they can't question Gerry and Kate. Do you not know how unethical this one sided story was? Have you completely forgotten the principles of Freedom of Speech, or even what your went into journalism for.
As for the 'expert' rolled out to put forward the continued fake abduction story, seriously? Mark Williams-Thomas? Just because someone claims to be an expert, doesn't mean they are. Mr. M. WT, sat interviewing a murderer in his front room with the body of the victim directly above his head. Deh!
With Mr. M. WT as spokesman on their behalf, they need no enemies. His own pet theory that Madeleine wandered, flies directly in the face of the McCanns only 'proof' of abduction, that open window. Does he honestly believe the tiny Madeleine jemmied open the window, lay the front door wide open, then wandered off down the stairs closing two childproof gates behind her? If Mr. M. WT is an expert criminologist, then gawd 'elp us.
Fortunately, as with every McCann counter attack these days, it has badly misfired. Mark Williams Thomas had made many enemies during his career, and unlike mainstream journalists, anyone taking his word, would do a few rudimentary checks on the internet. The truth is, MWT was probably all they had, but he has probably sent thousands rushing to the internet to find out what Goncalo Amaral's book is all about.

Apologies for my lack of replies. I have been very unwell and completely out of action. Hopefully now on the mend, but meanwhile thank you to those who have kept the discussion going.
