There is no known reason for the family to invent their story so I think that they did see someone who may well have had nothing whatsoever to do with anything.

It's interesting though the kerfuffle that mention of the sighting creates in certain quarters.
If I remember correctly, Mr Smith did not just notice the similarity between Gerry carrying his sleeping son off the plane and the man they had seen in PDL, He was also drawn to the identical way he turned his head to the side in both situations which was probably what made him fairly sure it was the same person.
Where did you read that Rob? I can't see it in the files, all I can see is this...

"He states he was watching the 10 pm news on BBC and saw the McCANNS getting off the plane and coming down the steps. He states it was like watching an action replay of the night he saw the male carrying the child back in Portugal. He states the way Gerry was carrying his twin triggered something in his head. It was exactly the same way and look of the other male seen the night Maddy went missing. He also watched ITV news and SKY news and inferred it looked like the same person both times carrying the children."

There's 18 different threads/topics on CMoMM that has either Smithman or Smiths in the title. And that's just on the first page of their 'Crimewatch' section.

All desperately and unconvincingly (by the usual suspects) trying to persuade folk that the Smith family are all liars with a lot of deliberate misinformation and obfuscation thrown in for good measure as well.

Just thought I'd drop that off.

As you were, folks. Very Happy

And they were very very worried about what would happen next, live, on tv in the UK.

Yeah I agree. I don't think they were in the loop or knew anything about Redwood's "revelation" moment... Which was obviously to eliminate Tannerman and bring the focus back on Smithman.

I don't think they saw that one coming at all.

It was the moment that showed that the cover-up is not there to protect the McCann's but to cover up whatever was originally being played out at PDL that week.
I totally agree. So what are your views on Grange?

I totally agree too....

The latest Panorama stated that Smith changed his mind about the man he saw being Gerry... I wonder if that is the case?
Perhaps he was 'persuaded' by Kennedy.
Why would he change his mind otherwise.....
But I dont trust what Panorama said - it was blatant propaganda (charity indeed..)

That was corrected later on the Panorama website.

The programme is subject to a correction. In this episode it was stated that Mr and Mrs McCann had set up a charity, the ‘Find Madeleine’ fund. In fact the fund was established as a not-for-profit company with charitable aims.

Yes, all well and good but it is a bit late when everyone has already watched it.

I find it strange that OG is now pinning  hopes on a woman dressed in purple as a possible abductor. Why has the focus gone from Smithman all of a sudden when Redwood was giving it large on Crimewatch and saying how important the sighting was? Either Mr Smith came forward and said it was all a figment of his imagination which his family backed up or Smithman himself has come forward and been exonerated from any wrongdoing OR 'purple woman' and 'Smithman' were a COUPLE .

.... Maybe they need to corroborate the Smiths sighting by flushing out and putting some pressure on 'purple woman' (Tanner).

If that hasn't been done already.

.... It's interesting that 'purple woman' is not allowed to be discussed over the road as well.

Fascinating in fact.

So what's the latest with the updated/new/revised version of ''Smithman'....

Smithman part 314 is it?

Where's Tony Bennett with more McCann agenda rubbish?

Sharon wotsit as well. And not to mention Jill.

It's not Thursday yet, Andrew!

I haven't seen anything very recently about them recently over there.

Let's not rattle any cages, please.

Find something else to do tonight please! You know that you will be embarrassed to read your ramblings in the morning.

I've removed a sentence from your previous post as it could be taken as a threat.

Hi Andy, this is not where I first read that bit but it's quoted on this site. I get the impression from the wording that It is Goncalo Amaral's words.

" He recognises the way the man turns his head down and the way the child is being held against the shoulder. It is exactly the same as the man he saw on the streets of Praia da Luz, four months earlier."

At around the time that the Smiths went to Portugal to give a detailed description of Smith-man (and also help create an e-fit) Jane Tanner's Tanner-man sketch was made public. This strikes me as too much of a coincidence. It is almost as though TM were desperate to take the attention away from Smith-man and on to Tanner-man. And this is, indeed, what happened. Smith-man was buried for a long time while Tanner-man was being promoted as the 'abductor'.  

It may be that the Smiths at first genuinely believed that Tanner-man was the abductor who swooped at 9.15pm and therefore the man they saw could not have been responsible for what happened.

It could be that it was only after Robert Murat was made arguido (and it may be the Smiths were privy to certain local gossip with regard to what may or may not have happened) that the Smiths came forward to say that the man they saw was definitely not Robert Murat. This sounds quite reasonable. Smith-man looks nothing like Robert Murat who, apart from anything, wears glasses.

It's interesting that on the McCanns' official website they are still displaying a prominent image of Tannerman, they are still saying that the police cannot be certain that the man returning from the night creche and Tannerman are the same person and they are still asking for information. There's no mention of a woman in purple at all. I wonder why they haven't updated the site?

They're not going to emphasise purple woman. The same reason why they've never emphasised Smithman... (apart from some half-arse attempt to morph the pair)

Purple woman has a quick change of clothes while walking through the streets of Luz, stopping only to sedate three children, open some shutters for the sake of it, and abduct a child, getting spotted by the Smiths later?

She should be fairly easy to track down, she would have been admitted to a mental hospital within hours of having lost her sanity to that extent!

Not sure about that, Mo6.

Purple woman told a big fat porkie from the off. And everyone knows that.

Games being played by the MSM as they know all that as well.

Imo.
