Feeding Kitty

"At least you won't have to feed kitty every day."

So said an American blogger who invited me to guest write on his blog, this being an alternative to starting up a new blog and committing myself to the daily "must feed kitty."

Not a bad euphemism really, particularly if you want to approach blogging with some degree of professionalism and as such give your readers something new and interesting on a daily basis.

I did for a while take up his offer and not for totally unselfish reasons, firstly it gave me somewhere to write and express myself, but more importantly I had to write within set parameters, those parameters being no profanity and no anger.

It did me the world of good, for when I eventually started Only In America blog it was my second attempt of publishing a blog under that name, the first blog was quite simply an angry rant.
An angry rant that did me no good in the writing of and no good for anybody in the reading of, let's face it an occasional rant is OK but no one, myself included, wants to read a constant tirade of anger and vitriol.

This by the way is not the reason why the blogs have been closed, I just thought I would mention it in passing .

The blogs were closed because quite frankly I needed timeout, timeout from feeding Kitty and timeout to break the cycle of feeding said cat.

As the McCann situation has developed to where it stands today usable material has become increasingly scarce and harder to develop, increasingly more time consuming to the point of becoming a full time job and lastly, and not unimportantly, as the McCann situation has become humorless so have the graphics.

There are however occasions when a bit of material is handed to me on a plate so to speak, a non finer example of what is below, not the most humorous I admit but oh so fitting.

So peeps what I am saying is, I shall open up the blogs but I shall be posting at my leisure so don't be expecting new stuff every day.

Indeed a Shabby Bit of Journalism Mister Greenslade

Why then I can but wonder did you write it in the first place? methinks the hacks at the Screws are not alone in "inhabiting some kind of parallel universe."

I shall not bother to highlight some of the more nauseating passages in the drivel you have penned, the entire article is a vomit inducing testament to bad journalism and your jaundiced support of "a grief-stricken woman."

Why the press needs to highlight the sins of the News of the World
by Roy Greenslade

Last week I revealed that the News of the World was in trouble for publishing Kate McCann's diaries without her permission. Yesterday the paper duly apologised for having done so, causing yet more grief to a grief-stricken woman.
But it was a mealy-mouthed apology, carried on page 2 (the original article having been on page 1 and two full inside pages). You can read the "apology" in full here, but note the weasel words:
"We published the extracts in the belief held in good faith that we had Kate's permission to do so. It is now clear that our belief was misplaced, and that in fact Kate neither approved of nor knew that the extracts were to be published."
This is a breathtaking excuse for having screwed up. I understand that the paper had not sought a written agreement, had not spoken to Mrs McCann and had no clear-cut verbal agreement. So let's call "good faith" blind faith. There is no way that the paper would have apologised (and donated money to the Find Madeleine campaign) unless it knew that it had done wrong.
Note also these unctuous sentences:
"Upon learning of our error we immediately removed the extracts from our website and we today offer Kate our immediate and sincere apologies...
"The News of the World remains wholly supportive of the McCanns and their continuing campaign to find their daughter."
It removed the website articles after lawyers intervened. As for being "wholly supportive", it was so supportive it was happy enough to run copyrighted material without permission. It was wholly supportive by intruding further into the privacy of a mother grieving the loss of her vanished four-year-old daughter. It was wholly supportive by feigning sympathy for the McCann family while trying to win sales through a tawdry "exclusive".

But why am I alone in condemning the journalism - the so-called journalism - of the News of the World? The BBC and Sky News did see fit to mention the apology on their bulletins, and carry the story of their websites, here and here. But the paper's scandalous behaviour was ignored by the press. Why should that be?

I think national paper editors tend to believe the News of the World inhabits some kind of parallel universe. It is so far below the salt that it doesn't matter. Better to ignore it altogether.

In fact, as Britain's largest-selling title, it should be monitored carefully and its continual breaches of journalistic ethics - not to mention breaches of the editors' code of practice - should be exposed. They contribute mightily to the widespread public distaste for the press.

And lest we forget, this is not some isolated error. The paper's editor, Colin "Calamity" Myler, was previously fired from an editorship (of the Sunday Mirror) for poor journalistic judgment. He was also responsible for the sleazy journalism that led to a privacy victory by Max Mosley over the News of the World. And this is the man who has broken a pledge made in November last year to change the NoW's agenda.

He told fellow editors at the time that his paper would run fewer sex and drugs celebrity stings. He told them: "I personally believe that stories about celebrities misbehaving - well, that's a surprise, isn't it?" Instead, he promised that the paper would look more often at "other issues... that affect the fabric of society."

This week's "other issues" affecting society's fabric were a collection of soft porn revelations about a footballer's alleged girlfriend being an alleged hooker (plus titillating video), an actress's alleged desire for a lesbian fling (plus slideshow and video) and an "online exclusive" about the alleged "sex secrets" of a Strictly Come Dancing contestant.

Sure, this may be what people want, and the NoW - employing the rationale of a pornographer - is merely satisfying their appetite. But the paper is considered to be part of the British press. If the rest of the nationals avert their gaze from its misdemeanours then it's no wonder that it goes on doing as it likes week after week, dragging us all through the mire.

And it is the reason that Kate McCann was crying with frustration a week ago at the wholly unwarranted use of her personal diaries. source

 Not surprisingly then after reading this sycophantic drivel that 3A's poster CloudCastle penned this little tribute in the form of an open letter to Greenslade.


What's your blind spot with the McCanns, or are you simply using them to have a go at Colin Myler?

Let's put aside this class-warfare nonsense, shall we? It doesn't matter what class the kids were. The McCann kids and those of the rest of their party were left alone in their apartments most nights of the week's holiday while their parents went out to dinner. Madeleine, at 3, was the eldest.

Do you, like xxxxxx above, actually believe the McCanns' claims of an abduction? What piece of evidence makes you think this? The released police files show no evidence of an abduction. All that we have is a claim by Jane Tanner that she saw someone carrying a little girl, at a a time when both Gerry McCann and an independent witness say Tanner was not on the street. The waiting staff at the Tapas restaurant state she didn't leave the table. The police found no evidence of damage to the shutters or fingerprints other than those of Kate McCann and the handprint of a less than careful policeman. The only other sighting that supports the view that the child was carried away is that of Mr Smith, who says he is 60% certain the man he saw was Gerry.

(No opinions here, just evidence from the police files.)

On the other hand, we have sniffer dogs who indicate the odour of a dead body in the McCanns' apartment and hire car, on the car key, on Kate and Madeleine's clothing and on the child's soft toy. In no other cars or apartments searched did the dogs indicate odour or blood. Since being released from arguido/arguida status, the McCanns have failed to address any of the contradictions in their statements or the issues raised by the dogs, not least because the British press has not raised these questions with them.

Over the last eighteen months, we've witnessed how far the standards of British journalism have fallen. Sections of the UK press have merely cut and pasted the most outlandish claims not only of the Portugese press, but the McCann PR team. We've had endless sympathetic hand-wringing opinion columns from writers - I hesitate to call them journalists - who never leave their desks. We've had articles like this one by Roy - an article about an article about the retrospectively written teenage-ramblings of Kate McCann. We've had Lori Campbell in the Mirror pointing the finger at the wrong man, Robert Murat, and getting the Young Journalist of the Year Award for it. We've seen packs of journalists chasing sightings of little girls around the streets of Brussels.

Show me, please, one article in 2008 where the editor of a newspaper has given his reporter the freedom to investigate this case properly. Where are the interviews with the Tapas 7, whose stories simply contradict one another? Why have we seen no interview with Brian Kennedy, who bankrolled the McCanns and flew down to 'interview' Robert Murat? Why has no paper investigated how the Madeleine Fund, a limited company not a charity, has spent the hundreds of thousands of pounds sent to it from children, parents and grandparents from all over the world, details it refuses to make transparent?

Is investigative reporting just too hard for your colleagues today, Roy? Is it easier, not just cheaper, to regurgitate press releases or quote 'a friend of the family'?

Is that why, Roy, the press needs to highlight the sins of the News of the World? Is it because it's easier and cheaper than highlighting the sins of the McCanns?

Clarence Mitchell: Sophisticated PR Guru or Just a Stupid Twat?

Is this it, is this where we are now at, has the death of Madeleine McCann and the disposal of her body by those nearest to her degenerated from pantomime to circus to repugnant farce?

When a spokesman hired to protect the prime suspects in the death and disappearance of Madeleine McCann, to denigrate the facts, to confuse and to shamelessly lie in furthering that protection.

When that same "spokesman" for suspects, a hitherto unknown and unique component in what is not just a case of child neglect but given the hiding of the corpse of Madeleine must surely be a case of culpable homicide.

When, added to these factors the inclusion of the "possibility" of Madeleine being held by Romanies and, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that "There is no suggestion she has been harmed or killed," then yes, this case has decayed beyond repugnant to reach contemptible, sordid and, like the McCanns but much more so Mitchell, vile, disgustingly vile.

You know she's dead, you know her parents are culpable and you know that I and thousands like me know that you know.

Clarence Mitchell, you are without shame.

"There is no suggestion she has been harmed or killed," says Clarence Mitchell. "They believe she has been hidden somewhere. It could be a Romany family who have taken her. It's unusual but not completely rare. As long as there is money in the find to pay for investigators, the investigation will continue. If and when it runs out, there are ways to bring more money in."

Woman's Own article.


Madeleine's parents face new agony after detectives mistakes are revealed.
No one can fail to be moved by new revelations of information that was withheld from Kate and Gerry McCann in the search for missing Maddie.

Possible sightings, e-fits of two suspects, CCTV pictures and information that a paedophile ring may have ordered the abduction have been brought to light.

And now the couple may be planning to sue Portuguese police for any mistakes they might have made during the investigation.

Family spokesperson, Clarence Mitchell, tells Woman's Own, "The mistakes and incompetence are there for all to see. If they'd done a lot more in the first few days after Madeleine went missing, then there would have been a better chance of getting her back."

The move was revealed as the McCanns team of private investigators were following up a new sightings of Maddie- a security guard in Brussels, Belgium, is convinced he saw her with a woman in a hijab headdress just days ago. While the McCanns priority is still to get Maddie back, their legal team in Portugal are seeing if there are grounds for a lawsuit.

But this renewed investigation comes at a time when the McCanns are running low on cash. There's just £460,000 left in the Find Madeleine fund, and with the investigation reported to be costing £166,000 per months, they're running out of the money needed to find their little girl.

But members of the public, desperate to return Madeleine to her parents, have got into trouble taking pictures of children whom they suspect may be Maddie. The McCanns are now urging people not to take photos of children without the consent of their parents, but to report any suspicions to the police immediately.

The recent reports of possible new sightings have further convinced the McCanns that their daughter is still alive and unharmed, playing down claims that she may have been snatched by a paedophile ring.

"There is no suggestion she has been harmed or killed," says Clarence Mitchell. "They believe she has been hidden somewhere. It could be a Romany family who have taken her. It's unusual but not completely rare. As long as there is money in the find to pay for investigators, the investigation will continue. If and when it runs out, there are ways to bring more money in."

Write On This. Madeleine Won't Be Needing It Anymore

Deary deary me, this is one that I don't need to spell out, stroll on!

Hours after the disappearance of the little English girl, the McCanns used the covers of children’s story books that belonged to their daughter, to write down details of the evening.

Hours after Madeleine disappeared, the English girl’s parents tore the covers of two children’s books that the child enjoyed leafing through before going to sleep, to write down the details of the evening of the disappearance. more Joana Morais

Clarence Mitchell Whore

I have had about as much as I can take this last twenty four hours watching this cocksucker spew his lies and bullshit.

The only thing that has saved me needing a new monitor is the fact that when this obscenity is over the self same video clips that I have had to endure as this whore vomits his disgusting bile is that they will be there for posterity and will be an non-erasable testament to the antics of this piece of shit.

There is a dead child
in all this that seems to have been forgotten.

Common Sense

A small extract from Paulo Reis regarding the Tapas Seven and the reconstruction.

About the reenactment, the main problem of the Tapas group was clear: either PJ believed in their statements and the reenactment wasn't necessary, or PJ was trying to get something strange out from that. They wanted to know what were the real intentions of PJ. After a lot of emails were exchanged, through Stuart Prior, the Tapas group remain unconvinced of the utility of such reenactment.


The next answers from the McCann friends put as conditions not only the lifting of the status of "arguidos" of the McCann couple but also a public statement from PJ dispelling the lies churned out by the Portuguese Press and stressing that there were no suspicions over the seven friends. more

And here is a comment I saved to file purely for the common sense it displayed. From poster quark1 on the 3As. Emphasis mine.

I agree xxxxxxx, that if these statements were taken on in May, and Katerina and Arul are telling the truth of what they saw, then it does implicate the whole group! It is 'the whole goup' who have kept totally silent and invisible for 15 long months....even though a little 3 yr old has probably lost her life.

Does anyone think that these people would have kept so silent and invisible if a real abduction had taken place? If things had been exactly as the McCanns said? That Maddie was left there, safe in her bed, and someone went in and abducted her? Do you think the Tapas lot would have taken such huge pains to disappear from view in that case?

No, they would have been doing what normal friends would do in that pictured all over the place supporting the devastated parents, be speaking out at the fund-raising balloon releases, be at any reconstruction the PJ wanted to do.

Thats what normal friends of innocent parents would do.

But these Tapas lot.....they have slunk away and hidden under stones!

They are all in on it IMO. Every last one of them.

Can't argue with that.

Jane Tanner: Liar

I would like, with the aid of the newly released sketches, to put together as simply as I can a short article that exposes the lies of Jane Tanner and the corner stone of lies that the "abduction" was built on.

I suppose I could be succinct and say: No jemmied shutters - no abduction.

You may think this a simple statement from an even simpler fellow but the shutters are the fundamental corner stone that the McCanns built their abduction theory on.

The basic premiss of the McCanns being, when asked why they were so sure there had been an abduction and Madeleine had not just wandered off, "The window was open and the shutters jemmied."

But if we remove the jemmied shutters from the equation what then becomes the basis for any abduction?

The moment that the shutters were shown not to have been tampered with should have been the moment that handcuffs were produced and the McCanns carted off to the Portimao nick, alas, as we are all aware, that never happened.

You might think given all the recent revelations that I could find other things to write about, maybe so, but there are still plenty of folks that are not surprisingly confused about the events of the third of May or more incredibly actually believe Jane Tanners account.

I myself have always laboured under the misapprehension that Gerry McCann and Jeremy Wilkins were stood having there little tĂȘte-a-tĂȘte on the opposite side of the road from Tanner's route, as we shall see from Tanners own words this was not the case which lends even more incredulity to her story.

So let us first take a look at the building plan of apartment 5A.
I have for clarity turned the plan through one hundred and eighty degrees and re-labeled it and the re-labeling of Tanner's sketch again is only for clarity.

Next up is a composite of the street and a squashed version of the apartment building plan.

And lastly Tanner's sketch that I have re-labeled for clarity and on which I have superimposed the plan of 5A.

What we know for fact:

Contrary to initial claims (later recanted) by the McCanns that the front door was left unlocked it was in fact locked and was not used by the McCanns for fear of waking the children.

Forensics have disproved that the shutters were tampered with and equally disproved that no one exited through the window let alone someone carrying Madeleine, in fact the only fingerprint on the window/shutter was Kate McCanns.

This then leaves the unlocked patio door, admittedly left open by the McCanns.

Now here lies the problem with this little tale, the "abductor" neither entered nor left the apartment via the locked front door or the shuttered window, an impossibility.

Therefore any access by said abductor must have been through the patio door, but more importantly the patio door was the only point that an abductor could exit 5A.

If we go back and look at Tanner's sketch how then did the abductor exit the apartment through the patio door with McCann and Wilkins stood where they were and miraculously appear walking across the top of road from point five to point eight?

The answer therefore is quite obvious, he didn't, it's quite impossible, Jane Tanner is, like the rest of this sorry bunch, an out and out liar.

The whole thing is a crocc.

Not the most sensational of articles I admit, but hopefully it may go some way to clarifying any confusion that some might have had.

A Little Nonsense

You will probably need to be an American to fully appreciate this one.
