What experience do the McCanns have of "the additional pain of financial and legal bureaucracy"?
From day one, the couple received personal assistance from the British government, both home and abroad in the shape of Ambassador Buck, Embassy staff and their very own governmental spokespeople. Top of the pile help from Mark Warner and every conceivable aid possible including massive press coverage costing megabucks and access to top lawyers.
With millions being spent via their own private limited company (the 'fund') and an additional £3.5m of further money being spent on a review of the case, these people are the WORST ambassadors to be championing the government about the pain of financial and legal bureaucracy.
I could quote a myriad of worthy people who should be making headlines today, from Kerry Needham to Kevin Godsen to Fiona Mackeown.
Instead we have the self-centred, ungracious hypocrite that is Kate McCann.
These parents would be grateful for a fraction of the help the McCanns have been privy to, and still are. And just as deserving as the family who half-heartedly greeted the news of a review by Scotland Yard, saying that it addressed one of their key disgruntlements, but a step in the right direction?! The child's case is now actively being reviewed....!!! I don't know of any parent who wouldn't be overjoyed. The McCanns certainly are a different kettle of (sel)fish...
Here's hoping the £3.5m is well spent and progresses to the case being reopened in Portugal. At present, Kate McCann is in the wrong country, and championing the wrong government for the wrong reasons.... but then she's well aware of that I'm sure.
