Quote of the Day - Looking back on the Madeleine case

"Kate and Gerry did have two mortgage payments made by the fund, but this stopped when they were made formal suspects. I really want to stress that they have never asked for one penny from the fund – despite taking un-paid leave to try and find their daughter. Seriously, even when they were in Portugal, they never asked for one penny."

Esther McVey* in Liverpool Daily Post, 5 November 2007


*Esther McVey is a long-time friend of Kate McCann and was spokesperson for Madeleine's Fund from its launch in May 2007.

Esther and Kate first met in 1986, when they were both 18, at the North East Technical College in West Derby, where they were studying A-levels together.

She joined the board of Madeleine's Fund on 20 June 2007 and continued her role as spokesperson for the Fund until her resignation, announced in January 2008.

Ms McVey has remained-tight lipped as to the reason, or reasons, behind her resignation - a rather ironic position, considering her desire to become a Member of Parliament and given her former and current roles in the media/PR.

Her own website, on which she once displayed an online petition in support of the McCanns, now contains no mention of Madeleine McCann at all.

  2. Well, this is the Mccanns curse:You help and defend them and sooner or later you will regret it.

    "Ms McVey has remained-tight lipped as to the reason, or reasons, behind her resignation".
    Why,Ms McVey? Have you been told to shut up?

    "Her own website, on which she once displayed an online petition in support of the McCanns, now contains no mention of Madeleine McCann at all."

    Why,Ms McVey ? Do you now know something you didn't know a year ago?

  3. Ms.McVey is telling the truth, she is honest.
    The Mccanns would never ask for a penny.

    They ask for thouwsends and they get them.

  4. 'that they have never asked for one penny from the fund –'

    Have they or their family contributed one penny of their own to the Fund? With family and friends being in charge of the Fund perhaps they have no need to ask for a penny. Personally I would not even donate a penny I found lying on the street to their Fund.
