Madeleine McCann: British Charity admits giving priority to celebrity McCanns over ordinary parents

A British newspaper has contacted a charity set up to provide help and support to relatives of missing people to seek help for a local family in a similar situation to Dr Gerry McCann and his retired wife Kate. However, Missing People is refusing to publicise cases in favour of the stars of the Oprah Winfrey Show, the McCanns.

The Sunday Mercury was told it would be “too time consuming” for its staff to do so, and they would prefer to keep the focus on Madeleine McCann.

This is the same organisation enlisted by Team McCann that recently said, “Families like Madeleine McCann’s need more help with the emotional, social and practical impacts that occur when someone they love goes missing.”

So unless you are a family " like Madeleine McCann’s" who have a Golden Address Book, professional friends with long memories, a Prime Minister who has your mobile phone number, access to government media advisors, high profile lawyers, and like Gerry and Kate McCann are directors of a multi-million dollar fund that has been largely used for perception management - you can pretty much forget about getting support from Missing People.

Oh yes - it also helps if you leave three children aged three and under alone every night while you go for your nightly booze up with friends who also leave their children unattended.

Charities are far too busy helping such people to be able to support ordinary hard working families who through no fault of their own have lost loved ones, so please don't bother them - although they will gratefully accept any donations.

When Madeleine McCann went "missing" on or before May 3, 2007 - so did truth, integrity, ethics - and justice.
