Mr Mitchell told the Mirror last night: “It makes perfect sense for Kate and Gerry to keep careful consideration over all their costs. I will continue to help them as circumstances require.”
Although on the other hand a source close to the family said: “They must be out of their tiny little minds getting rid of that wonderful Mitchell chap - the man's a saint.”

@w_nicht @RobertCarlisl10 Let's wait for the Supreme Court Decision.We don't even know if #McCann appeal was accepted (but they have to pay)


I would imagine they would have had to have paid the appeal costs upfront. The cost was rumoured to be around 95k.

My thought on reading this is that he's jumped ship.

Perhaps he is distancing himself before the McCanns go down and he's spun the story this way so that it doesn't look like the heartless spokesman has abandoned the pair in their time of need.

I do like the little snippet of him being sacked by an email from the heart ...perhaps it's the one cardiologist Gerry keeps on a jar on his desk  Smile

I suspect that he has jumped ship,maybe he can see the tide turning and is distancing himself? I think the 'sacked ' version is an agreed story between them all to stop awkward questions

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/1694829/kate-and-gerry-mccann-dump-long-serving-spokesman-in-bid-to-cut-spiralling-costs-of-hunt-for-missing-tot/

THE parents of Madeleine McCann have axed their long-serving spokesman in a bit cut costs.

Kate and Gerry dumped PR guru Clarence Mitchell after nine years as they face a cash crisis.

They have just five more weeks of Government funding towards the hunt for their missing girl.

The couple have vowed to use money from their official fund to continue the search themselves, adding:”We will continue to do everything we can to help find our daughter.

“Our hope and resolve continues.”

Gerry told Mr Mitchell in an email his “services were no longer needed” and he needed to “cut costs”.

The former BBC journalist was said to be “hurt” but respects their “more pressing agenda”.


The McCanns’ fun stands at £480,000 but they face a £434,000 libel to former Portuguese police chief Goncalo Amaral.

It is the first time since the three-year-old went missing from a holiday flat in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in May 2007, that Kate and Gerry have not had a spokesman.

Mr Mitchell told the Mirror: “It makes perfect sense for Kate and Gerry to keep careful consideration over all their costs.
“I will continue to help them as circumstances require.”

Last week the Metropolitan Police announced it may push for more government cash to help the hunt for Maddie.

Brit cops were granted £95,000 to keep the investigation going in April.

But the cash is expected to run out in October.

The McCann’s are bracing themselves for Scotland Yard ending the probe on October 5.

Cops have said there is now only one lead “worth pursuing”.

Well, personally I think there has been a falling out or Clarissa knows what's coming

They're still leaking the truth aren't they?

Imagine you've mislaid something relatively unimportant - phone, keys, sunglasses, whatever - and phrase a statement to the effect that you will find the missing item:

"I will find it"

Not:

"I will continue to do everything I can to help find it"

"I will find it" is a pro-active phrase and indicates that you want and/or expect to find whatever is missing whereas the McCanns' quote is passive and reads as they don't want and/or expect to find their daughter.

IMO

Just the 3 comments allowed thus far in the Sun article.

Will post them up:

Ethan Lloyd 1 hour ago
It's time the McCanns stop playing victims. I have my own opinion on how guilty they are, but at BEST (no comment) they're guilty of leaving their kids unattended. Can't stand them, don't trust them, it's time they stop playing victims and asking for money, cause the poor kid is long dead and they know that

@Ethan Lloyd  yes I didn't believe they could have anything to do with the murder until I read all the files... guilty as charged...


Dog Breath 1 hour ago
How much did Clarence earn them over the years? How many lies did he tell, how much deception did he perpetrate? How at risk are Kate and Jerry in now without their mouth piece? What's the remaining lead? Is it Kate and Jerry? Will they water board the tapas eight?




... I'm surprised 'Dog breaths' comment (remark at the end) made it through.

Would that be a completely accurate quote from TM ?   Because to say "to help find our daughter"  is beyond belief imo.

HELP find our daughter ???   How distancing that is.  The parent of a lost child would beg others to help them, not offer their help to others in that way.  
Just makes me so very angry to read such things.

@bluebell

The quote is lifted word for word from the article in The Sun: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/1694829/kate-and-gerry-mccann-dump-long-serving-spokesman-in-bid-to-cut-spiralling-costs-of-hunt-for-missing-tot/

And yes, the distancing is appalling.

Has Clarence really been given the boot? It is from daft Tracey Kandohla so let's wait and see.

As I said over the way...
So who gave the story to the newspaper?
Did it come from Kate and Gerry?
Did it come from Clarence?
If it came from Kate and Gerry, do we really think he was axed? Is it possible he was the one who axed them as clients?

I reckon so. Maybe he`s got wind that the net is closing in and he wants to distance himself.

I`m sure they said they only had £750,000 left a few months ago - now they`re saying it`s £430,000 - so where has £220,000 gone - lawyer`s costs maybe.

So just the 3 papers that have come out with this story..... Unlike a non-story like the Pokemon rubbish a bit back when every single news outlet covered it. Or anything else McCann related which they'll all print.

But just the 3 today though.. That I find odd in itself.

Poor Clarence doesn't even get the courtesy of a face to face meeting or even a phone call. Nope - he logs onto his emails the other morning to find he's been sacked...  Very Happy

Gerry's all heart.

Bliddy heartless i'd call it he did work for them for 9 years even if all he did was spout rubbish.

The least he deserved was to be "dumped" by phone.

I don't believe this e-mail malarkey myself.

Is it Clarence's way of saying they are 'no longer on speaking terms', so correspondences are done electronically... Another way of him 'distancing' himself. Or trying to perhaps? Or something else?

Something has clearly 'occurred' behind the scenes. What exactly is it?

Both parties feeling the 'heat' I'm sure. It was always going to come down to every man for himself. This is the start of it maybe.....

And which one might that be I wonder?

Text message? thought it was an e-mail.

He was told his “services were no longer needed” in a text message from heart doctor Gerry who explained that the family had to “cut costs” from their budget.
