All is clear now. So I'm back.

So now I know what the advice was all about.

I don't think my blog contained any threats or abuse aimed at Kate & Gerry McCann. Quite the opposite in fact. I have pointed out ways in which the existing evidence might be used to help clear them of any suspicion.

Today's papers and SkyNews broadcasts make it clear that such suspicion does exist. It exists for one very simple reason. The case of the disappearance of Madeleine McCann remains a mystery. No one can even state with 100% confidence what crime occurred. In fact it is still not 100% clear when the crime occurred. So, I have decided to re-open my blog.

The detailed S&S book review may have to go on hold. Others have done a better job of reviewing the book than I was doing anyway. I have finished reading the book now and almost wish I hadn't bothered. It really isn't a very good book. My criticisms of the early chapters apply equally to the later ones. I was hoping to find some revelatory section that would prove to me that Madeleine was abducted. There was no such section. If there is demand I may return to the detailed review.

I remain mystified. The evidence in the public domain casts some doubt on the McCann version of events, but does not disprove those accounts. I will continue to post about aspects of the case that I think are important because they are open to further investigation & hopefully progress.


  1. Pleased to see you`re back and btw your reviews were the most impartial IMO

  2. " The evidence in the public domain casts some doubt on the McCann version of events, but does not disprove those accounts." I suppose it depends which of the accounts you are looking at. going through the front door using his key, or through the unlocked patio door. Curtains wide open, or tightly closed and whooshing. Sudden gale force gusts of wind to slam doors and whoosh curtains or the Met office and local residents, who report almost flat calm. Gery saying he was in the apartment for a few minutes and Tanner saying Kate was complaining that he had been away for so long. None of it makes sense, which is why we are all still he

  3. Welcome back :) Thank you for re-posting your DNA articles.

    I could be wrong, but it seems they are targeting those who have been needlessly abusive towards the McCanns as well as the more serious hints of death threats (jokingly or otherwise). I don't think they are referring to those who are questioning the McCann scenario. The majority of those who question the "official line" do so in an adult fashion; it's the small minority with their infantile attitude that are letting the rest of us down.

    To my mind you have given a fair and level headed assessment of the book. I haven't read anything abusive from you towards the McCanns or S&S for that matter.
