Since when did a raving psychopath have sympathy for anyone? They are incapable of such feelings. He certainly showed none for the families of the young women he brutally murdered.

You're right - it's hardly a slow news day, is it? scratch
So is this a case of "timing is everything", then? And, if so, why? Twitchiness - or something more calculating?

Hmm.

Hmm indeed.

Greece
Syria
ISIS
The Budget
Wimbledon

There is so much happening at the moment with so many possible headlines that this must have been done for a specific reason.  A message?  But to whom?

I suppose we'll have to wait and see whether this turns out to be an attack on those who don't believe the McCann fairytale or part of a subtle change of attitude in The Sun reporting about the couple.

NI has no loyalty to the McCanns - they are simply a moneymaking opportunity to old Rupert. When the story breaks, if it is still publishing, The Sun will be up front and centre loudly vilifying the couple along with all the other NI outlets.

Strange story and as others have pointed out, plenty of headlines to pick from.

I am trying to imagine how Kate, Gerry and Team McCann will react to this story, and I imagine they will be mad as hell.  The Sun have juxtaposed the name of Madeleine with a heinous killer and themselves in a subtle Hannibal Lecter scenario* that does them no favours whatsoever.  

Imagine how happy they would be if the headline read 'Archbishop of Canterbury' (or another saintly person) stating 'the McCanns couldn't possibly be involved'.  Those would be the kind of headlines Team McCann are crying out for, stories from their friends in high places supporting them.

I don't believe this is an attempt to slur those who don't believe the McCanns, the links are too tenuous, the average Sun reader will think 'blimey, even the Yorkshire Ripper thinks they did it, and he would know'.  It's quite clever actually, it slurs the parents without incurring libel costs.  The 'Ripper' cannot deny what he said, it is in his handwriting, and they can't sue the Sun, because they are reporting the opinion of a scumbag not a credible commentator.  

This looks like payback to me, and it could be the first of many. I have a feeling Rupert has been biding his time.

Not sure what to make of this. As others have pointed out, the timing in itself seems most odd due to what's going on at the moment etc, and also if it is an old story then why bring it out now?

I personally don't think it's the work of Team McCann / Mitchell....

Would they really endorse the words "cast doubts on the McCanns" on the front page of a leading rag, regardless of who actually quoted it....?

I don't think so....

If it was something like "Yorkshire Ripper knows who took Maddie" then yes, absolutely Team McCann.

In all fairness, the average Sun reader might actually believe what Sutcliffe is saying... Might prompt some more folk to look into things further...

Interesting that it was noted they couldn't print certain sentences for legal reasons. Again would Team McCann allow that..... That just makes people more curious.

Or as others have mentioned - it could just be that rag sales are going down the toilet so stick a Ripper / Maddie combo up and watch the ££££'s come in... But I think there's more to it than that.

Murdoch is playing a game.

Just my thoughts.

It is part of a letter to one of his many fans, according to this article.

I wonder if there is anyone considered so vile (where have I heard that word before?) that they don't receive fan mail?

Savile was also questioned for one of the murders. It is also strange the Sun is allowing Sutcliffe a voice. I dont know...
Sutcliffe - (Savile) - McCann ? Very long stretch I agree...But !
It just feels a bit subliminally noncencical (sp on purpose)

Reading those comments, if this is McSpin then it has backfired spectacularly.

The two doctors who gave their all, including details of their sex life (sorry if you're eating), for the sympathy of the Sun readership are believed less than one of the most notorious serial killers of recent times.

lol!

From the second link :
The murderer, who is already blind in one eye after a prison attack, was also told he could lose what remains of his sight within a year due to an eye condition. He had refused laser eye surgery as he fears it could cause him to lose his vision immediately.

They said this back in 2009 but cant find the link again, but this is from March 2015, so it was said from either March this year or he wrote the McCann story back around 2009

From the Daily Mail article.

You have a picture of Sutcliffe and Saville.

Underneath you have Kate and Gerry McCann.

So photo's of a Murderer and Peodophile right next to Kate and Gerry McCann. 2 of the most vile people ever to grace the planet..... Alongside S and S....

What's that saying... A picture paints a thousand words.... (more so when words can't be printed due to litigation)

IMO etc.

I think the head line is great,even my OH(who takes no interest in this case) commented on it saying, Look even Sutcliffe thinks they did it.
This is bad for the mccanns in my eyes, to be there on the front page linked with the likes of the vile Sutcliffe.

Whichever way you take it it is not good, I would guess the McCanns are rather angry about it. Neutral

Oh dear! And notably in the Sun's facebook comments, people seem to be glossing over the fact that such a vile and dangerous person has made these comments and are instead focusing on the McCanns and their vile actions, with some even going as far as saying "well they won't be suing him" alluding to the fact that the Mc's never get negative press and those that speak against them are threatened with legal action!

Whilst a lot of people are singling out the neglect (and thus retaining the notion she was abducted) their sympathy has gone, but many people now going that bit further and questioning the entire story...This I gleaned from simply reading the top comment and the 148 or so replies..top comment being "Well he's not wrong is he" So if this was an attempt to align McCann doubters with serial killing nutters, then it has spectacularly backfired and if anything has opened up a public platform for people to say what they really think..with no chance of the Sun being sued.

So, I personally am feeling rather optimistic, albeit a bit dismayed that the likes of sutcliffe is given a voice, and that he has so many "female admirers" but it is a very interesting slant by the Sun, at a time when they have loads of other things to put on the front page, that they would go with this one, because it certainly hasn't done the McCanns any favours at all imo

Spot on Susible.

Why just now and why link Sutcliffe to the McCanns? That's not the work of Clarence IMO, that's for sure.

If it is then it couldn't of gone any worse if they were intentionally trying to rally up some public sympathy on the back of a mass murderer.

I suppose it could be just a ploy to distract from other related McCann goings on. The Wayback stuff for example.... Lets stick something out there that will get everyone talking about 'something else'.... anything apart from the W/B.

I don't think so though. This has been put out for a reason....

Sutcliffe is up there as being one of the most hated persons ever. Judging by public perception these days, then the McCanns aren't that far behind....

And that will really worry Team McCann. Oh dear!!

IMO etc.
