It seems Scotland Yard have requested further funding for Operation Grange for another year, rather than for the usual 6 months.
I don’t know what I make of that, I kind of had it in my head OG would wrap up soon, around the time Trump gets led away in handcuffs and we go to war with Ireland. To be honest I had forgotten the last increment was about to run out,which is a sign I suppose that I and I’m sure others, have grown indifferent. It ends when it ends.
For those responsible for Madeleine’s disappearance, it must be the worst news possible. They would much prefer to hear that Scotland Yard, despite much effort, could not reach a conclusion, and the file will archived. It will only be when the file is closed or someone (not them) is arrested that they will be relieved of the constant fear of that knock on the door. Why twice as much this time they will ask themselves, ‘are they closing in?’. For the guilty there will be no peace for the foreseeable future.
Gerry and Kate it would seem are extremely grateful, according to their spokesman Clarence. I can only imagine that extremely grateful was through clenched teeth, as I can’t imagine it to be anything other than highly frustrating for the parents. Unfortunately as the parents made such a big hullaballoo about the Brits stepping in to solve their problem, they daren’t criticise them now.
The bigger problem, and the one that loyal lap dog Tracey Kandhola led with, was the upcoming Netflix production of Madeleine’s story (as yet untitled), which is due for release this month. The parents are not happy. They haven’t participated in it, nor has Clarence, and their lawyers will be watching it carefully for any libel.
Now I haven’t got a clue what is going to be in the Netflix production, but I suspect the McCanns and Clarence Mitchell have, hence their refusal to take part and their threat to have lawyers watching. They claim they are not participating because there is an ongoing police investigation. OK, that’s fair enough, but it never stopped them in the past, even when they were arguidos. At that time they made much use of Clarence’s services.
I happen to be a big fan of Netflix productions, I lost 3 days when I began watching House of Cards. They are especially good with their docu-dramas, so it will be interesting to see their take on the Madeleine story.
