Leicester Police I Wish To Report Something Suspicious

And a piece for your jigsaw no less.

Loathe as I am to quote the little bollocks; one only has to read the last sentence to appreciate why, however, on this occasion I make an exception, if only because the piece is current.

We have seen a few glib answers from Leicester police of late, but no so flippant, or as convenient as this. It's a Portuguese affair, now fuck off.

Madeleine McCann, you are forsaken.

Madeleine McCann - Who Cares.

I don't know why, but I'm still finding it impossible to get a straight
answer about Madeleine McCann from Leicestershire police.

I called to ask about Madeleine and almost before I'd asked the question was
being given the old brush off: "It's a Portuguese investigation, not ours."

The Portuguese authorities closed their investigation in July last year. The
press officer said she hadn't heard or read about that.

Apparently, the Leicstershire force still passes on any potential leads to
the dynamic Portuguese police who established precisely nothing about
Madeleine's disappearance during their 15-month inquiry.

I gave it 24 hours and called back. This time I was told that all the
Leicestershire cops involved in the Madeleine case were on half-term holiday. So
push off.

She didn't actually say that, but it felt like she had.

Still, onwards and upwards. The last time I asked a Leicestershire press
officer about Madeleine she got hysterical.

I hope that privately, at least, Madeleine's home force shows a bit more care
and thought towards her family.
