Madeleine McCann An Appeal For Justice


This appeal, though part of a longer post, I made back in 2010. And now having witnessed the tragic death of, Brenda "Sweepyface" Leyland, who seemingly took her own life in consequence of being ambushed on her doorstep by the insidious, Martin Brunt of Sky News, I reiterate that appeal today.



I suppose I can thank the lovely Sandra Fegueiras for taking the edge off my very considerable ire, pretty women tend to have that effect on me.

But Ire it was, and ire it is, and ire it will always be, until that is, someone puts a stop to these two creatures.

Is there nobody in this country, is there nobody that has the wherewithal to end this obscenity, is there nobody prepared to say, enough is enough?

Is there not one politician, not one cop, not one journalist among you that will bring this thing to an end? And I deliberately refrain from using terms like grow some balls or find a backbone, because it doesn't take these things to do what is required, it takes decency, a sense of what is right, morals, or better, moral indignation; indignation at seeing the wrong that is going on all around us.

There must be so many of you in a position to end this, there has to be, and you know who you are, but I beg you, don't sit back and wait for the other fellow to act, you act, you have it in your grasp to stop this vile canker from polluting decency and polluting this country further than it has already.

Please I beg you, I beseech you, put a stop to it, bring this abomination to an end.

~ ~ ~

Let me make this quite clear, Brenda "Sweepyface" Leyland was not a "troll" as, even in death she was so described, by the deplorable hacks of the UK media.

Rather, Brenda Leyland was, like us all, just someone who wanted answers to this ongoing affront to decency and justice.

And as such, she asked questions and proffered both her opinion and snippets of information. Is it I wonder, those snippets of information that caused Brenda to be targeted by the McCann Machine, in the form of Martin Brunt?

A similar question I add, asked quite recently by Allan Sugar, Lord Sugar.

If the McCanns are not on Twitter, question must be asked who pointed out to media the so called trolling of the McCanns by Brenda Leyland.

Brenda Leyland's Facebook comments can be read here, and I ask you, are these the words of a troll? No.

But I wonder, was it content such as this, that caused the targeting of, Brenda Leyland?

Brenda Leyland Gerry McCann has a very short fuse, to say he is testy, is to put it mildly, Kate has perfected the " anguished face" to a tee, they now have a well oiled PR team and a constant flow of income generated from funds, I have heard that there are many at Glenfield Hospital ( Gerrys work place) who have expressed disquiet, however the McCann will sue at the drop of a hat.

It's a sad day Maren, such a tragic and needless loss of life.

I think far from being a troll, Brenda was an extremely sensitive person. That she is no longer with us attests to that.

But what she must have been going through in that hotel room, heaven knows?

Murdoch and his tabloid journalists are the ones to blame for all this internet vigilantism.

Perhaps, but who gives them the opportunity. As you once said, nobody wants to read about a cat not stuck up a tree. At the end of the day Murdoch and his tabloid journalists are not the ones who let Madeleine disappear or at least I do assume that.

Kate knows more than we do and Gerry McCann wants to create information. Withholding information, that’s where rumours do come from. M

Eddie Nestor talks to Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe about the dossier of alleged online abuse about the family of Madeleine McCann, reportedly (by Martin Brunt of Sky News) submitted by a "group of concerned, but anonymous web users".

Hogan-Howe states the file was handed in by the family of Madeleine McCann.

http://bit.ly/1rhzXOF

There are people who spend hours on end trawling through the internet for god knows what - latest iphones, sleb selfies youtube "funnies"...etc. Brenda Leyland devoted her online life to trying to seek justice for a little girl who was so obivously wronged (and continues to be so). I wish more people had Brenda's "problems"!

Even the issue of anonymity is a false one: "if you can't take, don't dish it out." Bullshit. Brenda entered into this fray, like thousands of others, with absolutely no line of defence other than the recorded facts of an investigation. Weigh this against the power of the McCanns, Sky, the Met.

The use pseudonyms and anonymity has an illustrious written and visual history. Historically, only totalitarian states have regarded it as a threat. And in my opinion, we should guard it closely.

Nobody in authority was going to help Brenda. We're told that Operation Grange has 40 officers and that they received this dossier of "threats" almost a month earlier. IT HAD BEEN READ. What the hell else was this 40 strong team going to do?


Well said. M

From Sky News editorial guidelines — 2013/14

Our reputation as a news organisation is our most valuable
asset so it is vital that our journalism is always of the highest
quality. If it isn’t – and we make bad decisions, poor judgements
or mistakes – we put at risk the trust of our audiences and the
potential damage will resonate well beyond the newsroom.

Like you 'all', Brenda had a serious mental illness. you can't blame the McCanns, Sky News or Martin Brunt for this woman's death. Tweeting about people you don't know from 7am till midnight - and doing nothing real or practical about your so called 'cause' - reveals the actions of a disturbed mind. Nothing wrong with that- just an 'illness', but no illness should be inflicted on others. What next? Martin Brunt commits suicide and you lot are responsible? Oh, please! He did not hound Brenda, He was actually very polite. You are one step saner than Brenda in that you're not spending a life online in anonymity, but you're still a fruit cake! Your bipolar is not your biggest problem. You've got a border line personality disorder - Along with Bennet, Jill Havern, Pat Brown, Joana Morais- All of you claiming 'justice' for Madeleine, and doing not one single thing to help the millions of living, desperate children in the world. Why? Because it's all about YOU. The very thing you blame the McCanns for- seeking celebrity- is the very reason you attach yourselves to this high profile case in the first place. Wherever you go, turmoil ensues- wherever Tony goes, the same.... You're all suffering from BPD and using the internet as an outlet, instead of facing the facts of your own lives. Whatever the facts of the case, it's a big soap opera for you, and a real tragedy for the McCanns.

Himself, Just to make it clear, comment 29 was not referring to Murat, Birch or any of that nonsense.

There's nothing in the files that convinces me that this entire Luz episode was not staged. It took good old Leicester months to bring the dogs in and that was only after the PJ wanted to go back to Blighty.

Everyone who's still interested in this case knows the dogs were spot on, but this mad affair is full of double bluffs. Remember the books in the villa, the surgical gloves, the disagreeable smells (Mr Wright).

Gerry driving around in the hire car, in full view of the world's press- CATCH ME IF YOU CAN! The entire fairy tale is built on misdirection and reverse psychology.

In addition, what are the odds of all those people suddenly falling
in line and looking anywhere but at each other, the whole thing smacks of utter contrivance to me.

Meanwhile back at the ranch,no one ever checked ground zero.

With the greatest of respect, try and have yourself a good day Sir.

We don’t believe for a moment in the existence of “paid shills” operating on the internet on behalf of the McCanns.

Neither do I.

The internet was left in the hands of their kin.

I tend to agree.

Himself said...

Hello Chuck, just in.

Neither do I.

Me too.

That, however, is very different from believing that no informal or organized support structure dedicated to countering “anti-McCann” posts and posters on the internet exists.

Instructed by, if not McCann directly, then through the clan’s internet monitor Michael Wright.

How can I be so sure?

If anybody should have come under constant attack from the trolls, it surely should have been me.

Instead what do I get, silence?

Silence, apart from half a dozen adverse comments, and that is all there has ever been. No more than that.

And, given that we know how vocal they can be, I can think of no other explanation for such an anomaly, than orders went out to stay away.

It's not my ego at play here, believe me. The silence has been deafening.

I had on two occasions in the early days,challenged the McCanns quite openly, to the effect: they were welcome, if they didn't like what I was saying, to file suite against me, and they could have their day in court, and I would have mine.

Whether or not that set the bar and the parameters, I don't know? All I do know, is that I have never been hassled.

That said, I did try to find where I had said it, but can't find it for the life of me.

Me time Maren, me time.

A statement read out from Ms Leyland's youngest son Ben Leyland, said: "I have no doubt in my mind that the panic and fear heard in her voice when she confided in me after the Sky News interview was the final straw that pushed my mum into doing what she did.

"She was broken, a wreck and completely destroyed by what had occurred".
