What happened to Victoria of Barcelona?
The shocking news released by the Leicestershire Police one cold
Monday morning was missed by many.
The news of the amount of money spent on the Madeleine McCann
Investigation.....this DOES NOT include the money the
McCanns have gobbled up for their FUND also assisted by
the 'ever helpful' Leicestershire Constabulary with a
Madeleine McCann hunt:
Police spent more than £500,000 By Mirror.co.uk 13/02/2009
British police spent more than half a million pounds assisting the
Portuguese investigation into Madeleine McCann's
disappearance, it was revealed today.
Leicestershire Police's part in the search for the missing little
girl cost £548,477 in 2007-08, the force said.
But it was reimbursed for most of this amount thanks to a Home
Office grant of £525,069.
The Policia Judiciaria - Portugal's CID - led the investigation
into Madeleine's disappearance from the Algarve village
of Praia da Luz on May 3 2007.
Leicestershire Police became involved in the case as the home force
of the child's parents, Kate and Gerry McCann.
British officers, headed by Detective Superintendent Stuart Prior,
conducted interviews of witnesses in the UK and passed
possible sightings of Madeleine on to their Portuguese
After a lengthy delay Leicestershire Police responded today to a
Freedom of Information request for information about its
role in the case.
It said: "The total additional expenditure incurred for 07-08 was
£548,477 and Leicestershire Constabulary received a Home
Office grant of £525,069."
The force refused to provide a breakdown of where the money was
spent because this would reveal "operational,
investigative and law enforcement techniques.
No one but no one saw the significance.
This had come straight from the tax payers pocket.
Not only were the gullibe British public paying into the fund ,
they were also being taxed for the privilege. Something
was needed to cover this 'bad day' news.
A sighting? No, the public were used to them... it had to be
PR Guru Clarence Mitchell , pulled out all the stops and came up
with the most LUDICROUS idea he has ever had , even
managing to tell the press with a straight face of this
new important break through in the search for Madeleine
Mccann. Along side him the McCanns top man Dave Edgar.
Dave sat there with sweat pouring down his face as
Mitchell went into his jargon.
I think even Dave found it hard to swallow and was amazed as the
spineless British press hung on to Mitchells every lie.
Followed was a week-end , 48 hour coverage, in every single Sunday
newspaper and the weeks to follow...for the search of a
look alike...... Victoria Beckham,,,
AND the most ridiculous story about the search for 'Our Maddie' was
The words this woman had spoken were 'Vital' to the investigation
said Mitchell. He could not possibly tell us what they
Only to tell us days later 'Victorias' words..."Have you got my
ANY Detective worth his salt , would know a woman, in Barcelona ,at
2 am in the morning .
.......walking the streets...is either, very foolish , a
prostitute... or a drug addict looking to score.
Barcelona, is rife with prostitues and drug addicts,
muggers and any other night life of the criminal nature.
It is not SAFE .
....... 'Have you got my daughter?'..damning words said Mitchell
and yes she surely means Madeleine.. WHO else could it
It is known that 'Daughter' is rhyming slang for 'Quarter'......
A woman alone at 2am searching the streets to score.....is more
probable, than a woman waiting to pick up Madeleine
Mitchell decided to add a bit of glamour .
Rhonda Wyllie, one of the richest women in Australia and also known
to Rupert Murdoch, was dragged into the story, she is
now more famous for being involved in the McCann case
than for her lavish lifestyle or her very generous
donations to charity and cancer research.
The whole story a fairy tale, but it achieved its goal.
Everyone had forgotten about the previous Mondays news and the
amount of money this investigation had cost the tax
Every single reporter who has penned his name to any newspaper
article , should hang his or her head in shame.
Skys Crime reporter Martin Brunt.
The Daily Mails ,Vanessa Allen
The Suns, Antonella Lazzeri, who when one writes to her questioning
her ethics when reporting on the Mccanns returns abusive
e.mails with language I would not like to repeat here.
We then have the biggest disgrace of all....The BBC's reporter MIKE
O' SULLIVAN, who due to his IGNORANCE of the Portuguese
language , accused Dr.Goncalo Amaralo of using an
abusive term when asked a question about the Mccanns.
MIKE O' SULLIVAN was wrong and the BBC were wrong in not checking
with someone who understand the language before going to
Hundreds of people wrote to the BBC asking for a public apology
about this SLOPPY reporter.....PROOF they had made a
mistake? the footage was quickly removed....WE are still
waiting along with Dr.Amaral for an apology.
I have named but a few.....the most disgraced honour however, must
go to the Daily Mail's..... David Jones who went to PDL
and reported back his supicions of the Mccanns and how
their story did not seem to make sense.
Later, much later after talking with Clarence Mitchell , he made a
public retraction...he apologised to the Mccanns and
said he now knows they are innocent.
Shame on you David Jones for betraying your soul and the soul of
three year old Madeleine Mccann.
Every single one of you have mocked and earned your money from this
three year old childs death.
Every single one of you have no thought for Madeleine and what she
may have gone through, a frightened little girl who may
have met her death in a brutal way or a simple domestic
Instead of thinking of the Mccanns ,why do you not for once think
about Madeleine and start asking WHAT really happened to
