And on the Long List, iiiiiit's Kate and Gerry McCann

I thought I might update this piece with the same reply that I posted in the comments section.

This then in reply to being, light-heartedly accused must be said, of taking the piss.


Me take the piss? Louise, compared to these two I'm a rank amateur at the game, a mere beginner. I couldn't aspire to anything near close, not to the level that these two have achieved, not a hope in hell, not in a million years could I.

The McCanns are going to write a book. As things finally seem to be moving in the right direction, a direction that hopefully will lead to that which will damn them, the truth. That truth set to bring their world crashing down around there ears, crashing down equally on untold, but most deserved others, and what are the McCanns doing?

They are writing a book.

Two people, who for the life of them couldn't lie straight in bed, two people who's constant and innumerable lies are catalogued here on these pages, as equally as they are catalogued at a myriad of other sites throughout the net, these same two people are going to write a book. They are going to write a book in order that they may, "give an account of the truth."

And you accuse me of talking the piss?


It's not Christmas just yet it is it?

I shall never be stuck for inspiration ever again, pennies from heaven?!! it don't come anywhere close. I'm still trying to imagine it, "Madeleine Illustrated." I think I need to lie down, I have a touch of the vapours.

Forgive them, for they know not what they do.

"Maddie" Parents to write a book about her search

London (APD) - The parents of Madeleine McCann, who has been missing for more than 3 years, want to write a book about the search for their daughter. The book will carry the simple title of "Madeleine" and will be published on 28 April 2011, about four years after the disappearance of the child, said the publisher Transworld this Sunday in London.

The proceedings from the sale will go to the fund to search for "Maddie", who has been specially set up by the family. The British media reported a few days ago that the money in the fund - mostly donations from around the world - would be depleted next year. Several publishers fought for the rights to publish the book.

"The reason why I am writing this book is simple - to give an account of the truth," said Kate McCann, Madeleine's mother. "For us there is nothing more important than to find our little girl." Her husband Gerry said he hoped that the book could help solving of the case. "Our hope is that people who have useful information - knowingly or unknowingly - will report and share it with our team."

The then nearly four-year-old child, Madeleine, disappeared from a hotel room when the British family were on holiday in Portugal in 2007. The parents went to have dinner that night in the vicinity. A highly media-covered search investigation ensued.

The case has not yet been solved. The couple were accused several times, of the possibility of having simulated the kidnapping of Madeleine themselves, after they had found the child dead in the apartment. The family denies it.
