I'm reminded of the letters that I did on my printer over the weekend to three separate friends. It was mostly a case of changing the name and a few details only relevant to one of them.

No! I had a subscription with them many years ago, I remember that it was impossible to get an answer when there was a query with it.

I hope that my letters are more interesting than the sycophantic trash that Tracey turns out; to think that she gets paid for it. affraid

Poor old Kate.

Ten years ago, journalists were falling over themselves to wax lyrical about her beauty and now she just gets a standardised press-release announcing that she's hit the big five-0.

That's got to hurt.

lol!

There should be an annual award for the journalist consistently recycling the best trashy articles; my vote would go to Tracey.

It would be a remarkable publishing feat, if true. Most high profile titles don't even earn out their advances.

snipped from above link.....


MADDIE McCann's mum Kate raked in £84k in book sales in the past year - with every penny poured into the search for her missing daughter.
scratch confused

Last year - search.  Did I miss something...

Of course they used that money in their search for Madeleine.

So now we can add Portugal's Supreme Court to this list of places where Madeleine isn't.

They want to think themselves lucky that heaven and earth was moved to build a case on the slimmest of DNA evidence, and perhaps wonder why Madeleine McCann isn't deemed worthy of the same respect.

https://www.channel4.com/news/we-have-paid-a-price-a-very-heavy-price

I can't find the actual cost of the Stephen Lawrence investigation but, according to the above article, it was estimated to be around £30 million back in 2012 with £3.8 million spent on forensics alone.

Puts the £12 million spent on Operation Grange into perspective.

Remind us again Cressida dear who was in charge when officers shot an unarmed civilian seven times in the head on the London underground and then you have the gall to say the Lawrence case defined policing,in the words of Dame Lawrence.

 
If there was somebody to trust (in the Met) they would have put Stephen’s killers away at the time not wait 20 years’.

Scotland Yard confirmed this week more funding was secured for Operation Orange, which has been paid for by taxpayers since 2011, after Portuguese detectives closed their own investigation in 2008.

The express is not accepting comments on the article. I wonder why!

very ambiguously worded re the payment of after tax royalties into the Fund (reference accounts 2017). The figure quoted £84,000 could not be the royalties received for 2017 as the truthful bewk would not be selling much now so the figure included in the accounts is likely to be the total after tax royalties since the book was published in 2011! Now there was a band on the book cover promising all book income to the Fund - why then were the annual royalty payments not going into the Fund every year? If they have gone in recently, this can only be to protect the money from Sr Amaral now that the Supreme Court ruled in his favour.

I'm going to have to pluck up courage to read that all later.

"Journalist" - my elbow!

P.S. I'm not sure if he's the same one as in the Wikipedia link - there's no mention of him writing for The Scotsman.

Yep just as I thought.

www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5663705/Spanish-father-says-Madeleine-McCanns-kidnapper-entered-daughters-hotel-room-Portugal.html

'Madeleine McCann's kidnapper tried to take my girl': Spanish father says man who matched description of abduction suspect entered his daughters' hotel room in Portugal
Spanish father claims man entered hotel room where daughters slept in 2001
Says man told him he had come to 'check on the children' who were five and 13
Portuguese hotel said he was a regular who 'likes children but doesn't hurt them'
When e-fit of Madeleine McCann's 'kidnapper' was released, he recognised him


Although this little titbit stands out.


Despite an 11-year international search, neither Madeleine nor her alleged kidnapper has been found.

Just seen this tweet that sums it up nicely.

If such a person feels that he has to comment on an overheard conversation whilst his hair cut and it makes the newspapers, all must be right with the world. London & it's murders, risk of WWW3 etc. etc

It's unlikely that the Irish Jim Duffy is the same person as the one who wrote the cringe-worthy article. 

This is the Irish one I think.

This is the duffer (groan) who wrote the article.
