The McCanns: Build it up with silver and gold

On the night of May 3 this year, a tiny English girl who along with her younger siblings had been left unsupervised, went missing as her parents drank and laughed with a close-knit circle of friends - out of sight and out of ear-shot .

It was not the first time the children had been left alone at night, it was a regular occurrence. In fact, on this alleged family holiday in Praia da Luz, the McCann children seemed to spend more time with kindly strangers than with their Goodtime-Charlie parents.

Despite Gerry McCann's fondness for referring to child-friendly toppings and "normal family life," the previously obscure medico who plied his trade within the system of a troubled and controversial health authority, (an authority I will write about at a later date) seems to have little regard for the welfare of his family. It has been reported that shortly before Madeleine went missing, McCann had concerns about 'er indoors state of mind. Did McCann interrupt his tennis lesson to go and check his dearly beloved? Like hell he did. He relied on a friend.

The Tapas Nine rely a lot on friendship - both recent and past.

Almost as soon as Madeleine was allegedly abducted, phones started ringing in the UK. Friends were called upon to help, and in the words of good old Uncle Brian, favours were called in.

Notice I use the phrase, "allegedly abducted." Until a case has been proven in a court of law, it is an accepted convention to refer to an apparent crime as "alleged" or "allegedly". Except when it comes to the British media and the McCanns.

Despite there being little to support the theory of an abduction, the public have been sold the message that Madeleine was abducted. More than likely the victim of paedophiles - evil people who the McCanns didn't seem too worried about having images of Madeleine on their PCs.

To express a different opinion is not an option. If you do, you will be pilloried, ridiculed and leant upon. The McCanns must be protected at all costs - even at the expense of justice for a little girl.


It has been rumoured that Gerry McCann is a cousin of Gordon Brown, Britain's troubled Prime Minister whose connections include prime suspects in a criminal investigation, an admitted drug user and sex addict, and a double glazing salesman who became rich by having an empire of failed businesses. It is claimed that if true, this relationship would explain Brown's inexplicable meddling in matters that should not concern him.

Personally, I do not know if McCann and Brown are cousins - I couldn't care even if they are. Such a relationship would not explain the high level protection the McCanns have enjoyed.

So what is the answer? Why are the McCanns considered untouchable? Maybe the answer lies in the past - and a few questions that should be answered.

Uncle Brian - pay attention lad I'm talking to you. You mentioned, "we called in a few favours". I know British pedagogues of your ilk don't like being asked questions as usually you don't know the answers, but who is "we?" Could you be more specific? What were the favours and how far back do they go?

Back to the 90s perhaps?

In the past, did any members of the Tapas Nine have any special non-medical skills or talents that could be useful to certain people with certain interests?

Is it true that when the members of the Tapas Nine became known, members of certain professions in Scotland - especially Edinburgh, started wearing nappies to protect their immaculate pin-stripe suits? Hopefully they didn't carry them in the back of a Renault.

If the McCanns are charged and convicted of any offence relating to the tragic plight of the daughter they abandoned, used, betrayed and whose memory they have sold down the river - who and what will be exposed?

Oh Clarence, I realise that you will find these insinuations in what you would no doubt regard as "foreign media" to be hurtful, unhelpful and ludicrous.


Just answer the questions and forget your BBC background and answer them truthfully.

London Bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down.
Build it up with silver and gold,
Silver and gold, silver and gold,
Build it up with silver and gold,
My fair Lady.
