Discussion from the last two blogs has spilled over and it finally it becomes clear what the forum wars are all about. In one corner we have Tony Bennett, Richard Hall, HideHo and Petermac claiming Madeleine 'died' before the 3rd May and the man seen carrying the child was NOT Gerry McCann.
In the opposite corner we have Ben (I wanna run the biggest FB page) Thompson and his thugs who support the theory of Goncalo Amaral, but then go away with the fairies. I don't know what Ben's beliefs are, I've never had the stomach to read him - is it paedophiles? I know he's anti Textusa's swingers, but he gets himself in such a frenzy, he must think there was more to Madeleine's disappearance than an accident.
Both factions are of course bonkers, essentially they have stepped into this game of Cluedo and made it their real lives. Not only are they trying to insert themselves into the plot, but they want starring roles! All their theories are based on TEN year old files that had all the crucial parts withheld. And, I can't stress this enough, they weren't there. These theories come from their over active imaginations and the comfort of their armchairs.
Regardless. What it all now boils down to is the Smithman sighting - because that will determine one way or the other when Madeleine 'died' (yeh, I know). Those desperate to prove Smithman wasn't Gerry (mostly Bennett) have conducted a very nasty campaign against the witnesses in this case in order to discredit them. For two years Bennett was stalking the wrong Smith family!
I believe Mr. Smith. Not least because his statement stands out from the others, the tapas group especially, for being so brutally honest and human. It is clear from his words, that he is suffering an almighty crisis of conscience, and who could blame him? Gerry was the grief sticken father of a missing child, you can understand his reluctance to point the finger.
Death before the 3rd? Those trying to prove Madeleine died before the 3rd May are literally trying to force square pegs into round holes. In order for their theories to stand up, they must prove at least, a dozen independent witnesses have lied. To do this they have quite literally 'made up' back stories connecting these innocent bystanders to the McCanns. They have long since crossed all lines of morality and decency and they aren't even aware of it.
I am rapidly approaching my 60th birthday (Monday :( ) and I am sad to say, my beloved laptop is as knackered as myself! If you are regular visitor and you enjoy my blogs, or even if you don't, lol, please consider a small donation - the monetary equivalent of a birthday card or drink!
I have been undergoing a bit of a transition recently, as some may have noticed, but I have realised that I cannot let my 'Mcann' blog/commentary go. I think for many it has become a regular port of call, which I am immensely proud of. I am proud too, that I run a McCann blog, that calls for calm, compassion and consideration for the feelings of those involved. I'm proud too that people from all sides of the argument can come together here to exchange views civilly and with respect for each other. As popular as this blog is, it doesn't pay and I would never put up a paywall. I would write regardless, tis true, even if I had to go back to the old feather quill and the back of a discarded shoe, but the laptop is a whole lot easier, especially one not held together with a couple of hairclips and a bandaid.
