Kate McCann Becomes Ambassador For The Charity Missing People. Odd Choice That

How to get your message across without getting wound up. Not something I manage to do in the main.

Kate McCann Becomes Ambassador For The Charity Missing People. Odd Choice That

July 12, 2012

R.F.Wilson writes from London: Pardon me for asking but what exactly was Kate McCann thinking when she agreed to become the ambassador for the charity Missing People that deals with issues concerning people going missing. How did it actually play out between her and her public relations advisors? And what was the charity itself thinking when it offered Kate the position of its ambassador? Because let’s face it, she’s not exactly the best person by far to advice anyone on missing people, having left her own kids without supervision when one of them, 4-year-old Madeleine, went missing.

The whole point of preventing people, especially children, from disappearing is to keep an eye on them or, failing that, hiring someone to do that. Kate and her husband Gerry failed to do both of these thing when on a sunny day in May 2007 they decided to leave their children all by themselves in their holiday apartment in a Portuguese sea resort to have dinner with friends.

The McCanns seem not to understand that they are coming across as pretty unpleasant people, having joined the celeb circuit with the help of some dodgy public relations weasels, who obviously had good contacts in the media. Luckily for them Rebekah Brooks, the vain and unintelligent editor of the Sun newspaper, decided that Madeleine’s disappearance would be a great story to run, for weeks and months, with the two parents sharing their grief with the world but never mentioning the fact that they were the main cause of it. It was only a matter of time before the search for Maddy turned into some sort of international public relations campaign, with McCanns getting all offended if anyone dared to point out to them that they should really start grieving in private and raise money to fund their search in a less obvious way.

But encouraged by their advisors the couple pressed onwards, irritating more and more people for obvious reasons. It became pretty clear at some point that Madeleine was dead and that efforts by her parents to keep the interest in her fate alive smacked more of a publicity campaign than of a proper search. And when Prime Minister David Cameron decided to intervene, probably pushed to it by his friend, Rebekah, and ordered a full blown investigation by Scotland Yard into Madeleine’s disappearance, it all started to look distinctly unpleasant. Why should 40 odd investigators be spending their time looking for a child who had disappeared because her parents decided to have some fun and not spend any money on a nanny who was available at their holiday home? It actually looked bizarre, this decision to reopen the case at a cost of millions. It smacked of some perverted sense of justice, if justice is a proper word here.

The McCanns, who are obviously not very intelligent people, can’t seem to understand that their behaviour is offensive to people, who have lost their children through no fault of their own and yet didn’t make a huge fuss of it in public. And both Kate and Gerry should realise that under the circumstance they should be blaming themselves and calling on others never to leave their kids alone. Instead, they pretend to be victims of tragic circumstances rather than accept that they are the ones who are responsible for what had happened on that day. stirringtroubleinternationally

August 27th 2007. Abduction forgotten we are talking child trafficking and child sex abuse.

McCann in the U.S.Ernie Allen

Before he left, he had a tearful goodbye to his wife Kate, who is still in Portugal with twins Sean and Amelie.

Gerry is in the U.S. to learn more about how the country works to prevent children from becoming victims of trafficking and sexual abuse.

Heart Specialist McCann, according to Sky News, among other things, met America's first lady, Laura Bush. He will also meet with several senators and congressmen, reports Sky News.

He has already met with Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

Gerry McCann and his wife Kate have together fronted a massive campaign after four-year-old Madeleine disappeared from the holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in Portugal 3 May this year.

- My focus now is obviously to get my daughter back. It is most important, said McCann told reporters.

- But I think there is much goodwill out there now, so maybe we can do something tangible to help all children, said Father McCann.

Posters with pictures of the missing four-year-old hanging in bookstores in 200 countries worldwide, at the request of Harry Potter author JK Rowling.

This weekend it was announced that a Portuguese campaign wants to get Madeleine McCann parents accused of neglect. Yesterday parents beat back the criticism and called it painful.

- Kate and I find this criticism very painful and unhelpful. Our pain and anxiety is increasing every hour, said Gerry McCann.

I don't know who is the worst, these two lumps of human detritus, who without a moments doubt have killed their daughter one way or another, thrown her body in the trash like some piece of unwanted garbage, or should we reserve a special place for those that flock around them?

The creatures creatures.

History will out one way or another, the parents might not stand trial for Madeleine's death, but one day they will stand trial for fraud and all the rest of it.

And they will become to the world, what they are to you and me; totally and utterly reviled.

I agree with everything you say and understand your withdrawals, but, and it's a very big but, people like you, SM, JB, JM, have each done so much to open so many other eyes. Everything we wait for is postponed while further excrement is piled on the heap of dung. If everyone of integrity has to leave this cesspit in order to breathe fresh air again, who will continue to point to the truth?? So many people continue to believe what has been fed to them: there are far more people in the UK who believe the spin than there are the people who understand the truth of the evidence.

I feel horribly sorry for ANY parent that loses their child..for whatever reason......however, perhaps the McCanns would better serve the Public and other Parents by presenting a charity group designed to enlighten the Public about the dangers of leaving small children alone while going out to eat in other buildings, however "close".

That and it's all been mined out under the town and could fall into it's self at any time.

There are dozens of them, but here a couple I found quite interesting.

This is a trip we took to Rodney, Mississippi. You would never guess it now, but Rodney was once a bustling and thriving river port town. It missed becoming the state capital by only three votes. However, today it is pretty much in ruins. There are still a few people who live there but most of the town itself is abandoned. There are empty buildings, houses and churches lining the main street in Rodney. One of the churches still bears the scars of a Civil War gunboat attack and even has a cannonball stuck in the wall. Rodney is an absolutely amazing place to visit filled with history and reminders of those that lived before us.

A year later, we return to the ghost town of Rodney to investigate the further. Many of the buildings are open now and damaged badly from weather and neglect. We found photographs strewn about and a hymnal in a church possibly opened to the last song ever sung there. The graveyard was even worse than I remembered.

Rodney is an absolutely amazing place to visit filled with history and reminders of those that lived before us. If you decide to take the trip, please be respectful of their memories.

RE: [Missing Abroad - Missing Person Enquiries] M Mccann

Thanks for your email.

Every time a new missing person profile is added to our website it is only with the express approval or request of the immediate family or guardian.

The day Madeleine was reported missing we offered our services and we did run a profile of her for a while, however the McCann’s staff contacted us and asked us to take it off the site as they had their own campaigns and didn’t require our help.

Kate is aware of the services we offer and indeed I have worked with her on the All Party Parliamentary Group dealing with Missing and Runaway Children and Adults.

Of course if it is requested we would immediately place a new profile on our website, but as long as they don’t ask, I’m afraid Madeleine won’t be on there.

I hope that answers your query?

KATE MCCANN has begged holidaymakers “Please don’t forget Madeleine” as she urges them to take posters of her missing daughter with them.


12th December 2007

Hundreds of posters, shrines, and photos of Maddie have been ripped down from shop windows, restaurants and even the church in Praia da Luz.

And green and yellow ribbons of hope that fluttered in the trees after Maddie, four, vanished on May 3 have gone.

It reflects a desire to get on with normal life and dwindling support for Kate and Gerry McCann since they were declared suspects and left Portugal.

One woman said: “It makes no sense to display symbols of a child’s disappearance when the parents are suspects.”

6 April 2008

The 'missing' posters are mostly torn down. The hotels are preparing for the first of the season's tourists. Police are still talking to witnesses, but there is growing acceptance that Madeleine McCann's disappearance will never be explained

13th April 2009

The woman [a middle-aged barmaid at the development’s empty tapas bar], who did not want to be named, said: “We need peace in this village. Since Maddie vanished there has been a black cloud hanging over it.

A hostile Scottish barmaid rolled her eyes when asked about residents’ attitudes towards the McCanns. Refusing to give her name, she said: “I think people just want to move on because they are really fed up.

Now I know the McCanns moved to their current home in Rothley in 2005, and yet they only registered with Dr Schofield in February 2007 ( a few weeks before that fateful holiday in Portugal ) ... so who was their GP before that ?

Madeleine was just a week away from her 4th birthday when she disappeared, and must surely have been registered with a GP prior to February 2007 when the McCanns signed her up with Dr Schofield ( when she was already nearly four years old )

So who was the GP who the McCanns were registered with before February 2007 ? ... who is the GP who had 'seen' Madeleine ( if only to give her jabs )

What was the point of directing the police to a doctor who had never even seen anyone in the McCann family, barring Kate ( on just one occasion )

The secrecy surrounding Madeleine's medical records is very troubling.

Why wouldn't she answer the 48 questions put to her by police? Only liars need fear getting caught out. The truth remains the same no matter how many times you repeat it.

I really do not understand the McCanns at all. The disappearance of their little girl, who, sadly, is in all probability, dead, would have been absolutely devastating to most parents. Yet, it would appear, they have made this tragedy into a money making enterprise.
I am not convinced that they are entirely innocent of their daughter's disappearance - there are too many unanswered questions and inconsistencies in this story and now this latest chapter leaves nothing but further unease. No amount of money will ease a guilty conscience, whether it be leaving the children alone that night, or something more sinister.

It's pretty clear that something about the the medical history/condition of Madeleine #McCann is being hidden. What + why?

If she was being sexually abused, they wouldn't let her near another GP.

And we're back to old ground then, is (shared) sexual abuse the reason for the extraordinary way the Mcs have been treated?

• Madeleine's aunt Philomena McCann criticises the Portuguese police, claiming they had played down her disappearance and were being "uncommunicative".
• Detectives reveal they do now believe she was abducted but is still alive and in Portugal, and say they have a sketch of a "suspect". Police also reveal they are considering she might have been abducted for sexual abuse.
• Mr McCann makes a fresh appeal for help and thanks the police for their efforts.
• A colleague of Madeleine's mother offers a £100,000 reward for help in finding the missing girl.

There has been a lot of media publicity over arrests in Spain tonight following information related to the investigation to find Madeleine. This appears to be a clear signal from European police forces that they are treating all information relating to Madeleines disappearance very seriously

Mornin' Chuck.

I know it's a beast of their own making, but can you, you yourself, imagine living your life like they have for seven years? Never knowing, that with each new day, if today is the day it all comes tumbling down.

In all my life, I have never come across a pair with the psychological profiles that these two possess.

They are hard buggers, you can't take that away from them. Helped of course no doubt, by possessing what JillyC so accurately diagnosed as: Not an ounce of self awareness.

Below is a reply to somebody or other, I can't remember who, not that it matters, because I never posted it. But it is my thoughts surrounding Mitchell and his spin.

I have no problem whatsoever being in a minority of very few & equally I have no problem with saying there is nothing to sabotage.

The review is a crock of shit. Hence, Mitchell has, or feels he has, carte blanche to feed the press any old crap that takes his fancy, without recrimination from the Met.

Do you honestly think that Redwood's remit, includes embarrassing the hell out of all the press barons, all of Leicestershire police (bar one) and half the establishment, who for reasons best known to themselves, have latched on to this travesty?

And this is to say nothing about his gaffer, (Google Hogan Howe balloon release) Do think Hogan-Howe would thank Redwood for exposing the truth? I would think Hogan-Howe has enough on his plate, over Hillsborough.

And what about our dear unelected leader, and all the millions #Cameron has spunked away on this nonsense?

Again can you tell me, that thirty odd of London's finest, thirty odd Scotland Yard detectives, don't take one look at this case & all the indicia & come up with the right conclusion, the only conclusion, that the parents are as guilty as sin.

That it is something other than what Amaral says it is, a total con from beginning to end?

That Redwood is running some kind of scam, a ploy, to lull the McCanns into a false security & then he's going to nick them?

It's a pipe dream man, a pipe dream of those that want it to be that way. Well it ain't going to happen. And there is nothing I would like to be more wrong about, believe me.

After seven years of watching this grotesque circus play out, I haven't a bit of faith in anybody. And that includes the Portuguese. With the exclusion of one or to I suppose.


Back to real time.

When one thinks back now, since this review fiasco began, how many more reports in the Mirror, were purely plants by Mitchell?

There must have been dozens. And if plod had no pre-knowledge of each article, they certainly had post knowledge. And what did plod do about it?

Maintain the status quo as far as I can make out.

So why do we only hear about one, the one that was neglected while parents dined out with friends, left in a hotel room, denied the babysitting service that could have kept her safe. Maybe if those other missing kids had received the same media attention there would be a lot less missing now.

(...)My final question is, what exactly is going on in our country? Why launch an alert system on this scale? Why is it the job of a charity to bring this crisis to our attention over the governments? Why has our government not alerted us to the problem via the news and media long before a crisis alert system has to be set up by a registered charity? Why do C.E.O.P appear to be background players, not leaders in informing and acting? Surely this is the wrong way round?(...)

It is estimated that 140,000 children and young people go missing in the UK every year according to the charity Missing People.

Yes, of course.

Jim Gamble, missing children and his lack of understanding.


Come back on their own or ret by Police so why Missing People involved?

kids returning unharmed after voluntarily leaving, and abduction resulting in fatalities or harm are worlds apart

it's sensationalism, and irresponsible to report them as the same issue, they are very different problems FFS

I take the point that it's agony for parents, and law enforcement has to fear the worst, but stop fiddling stats

Well said, grasped the issue.

So, after seven years of jetting around the world, posters, appeals, sightings in Timbuktu etc they've started digging a few hundred yards from where she disappeared. I wouldn't trust these clowns to search for a missing cat let alone a human being.

A child goes missing every 3 minutes in the UK, nuff said.

from statistics printed in the Daily Mail a couple of weeks ago how many was it 1,400 children missing in the UK

What a load of rubbish, every 3 minutes. 480 children A DAY? That's 3,360 A WEEK! Don't make statistics up just to get a point across. What's more worrying is 313 people believe you. Never has a commenter's name been more apt.

Op-ed: Can parents really forget kids in cars?

With a photo of an ambassador for the charity missing people.

How apt.

Odd choice of picture that. LOL

Habit-based memories are stored in a region of the brain called the basal ganglia, which enables people to drive to work in “auto-pilot” mode, requiring minimal conscious effort.

I recognise that all too well.

But that doesn't explain why I forgot my front door yesterday evening. I propped it open yesterday to let a breeze through the house, the bugger was still wide open this morning.

Somebody might have . . . . . Me.

Fill in the blanks.

As you will have no doubt gathered, the Lance Armstrong film was a must watch. I shall keep my eye open for it on youtube.

Is Kate still the ambassador of Charity Missing People? Any way, me and my friends donated to the Charity Missing People but we make a request to them to make sure that our donations will be given to their charity children's beneficiaries.
