Having watched the case of Madeleine McCann since May 2007, and read the extensive police files, I do not believe there was an abduction.
Apparently not believing the abduction makes me a 'hater' and a 'pitchforker' and a stalker of the grieving parents.
I don't hate the parents, I don't own a pitchfork and as for stalking, I merely read the same press releases as everyone else and sometimes I comment.
This has led to a hate campaign against me that is malicious, spiteful and ridiculously disproportionate. I have never abused, insulted or accused anyone of anything. In trying to understand the nature of this dirty campaign, we need only look at the words of Kate McCann in regard to the detective who led the search for her missing daughter. She wants him to feel misery and fear, indeed she wants anyone who does not believe her to feel misery and fear and her supporters are more than happy to carry out her wishes, as a quick scan of their antics on twitter will confirm.
Recently these supporters have attacked my book Cry and You Cry Alone, by claiming that I have lied about St. Anne's Convent. I haven't. All the details of my case are a matter of public record, and I have since been fortunate enough to meet up with peers who were at St. Anne's at the same time as myself, many of whom suffered far worse experiences at the hands of the nuns, than myself. These cyber trolls who are attacking me, are also attacking others who had their childhoods blighted by cruelty and abuse. These same trolls also attack those who were abused by Savile. We must ask, how attacking survivors of historic abuse helps in their search for the missing Madeleine McCann?
I have attempted to step back from this case as the Hate campaign against me is now affecting vulnerable people who do not deserve this abuse. However, this has made no difference, and in fact the McCann supporters have raised their game by posting negative reviews of my book on Amazon and by 'lifting' everything I tweet or post in order to trash me on their hate site. This is censorship 'mccann' style, anyone who doubts their story will be ripped apart and used as an example to others who might be tempted to voice their doubts.
Despite all of the above, I still have sympathy for the McCanns, there can be nothing worse than losing a child. Both the UK and Portugal have invested heavily in Reviews to discover what happened to Madeleine - lets hope these Reviews lead to a re-opening and conclusion to this tragic case.
