Quote of the Day - Looking back on the Madeleine Case

After a series of telephone conversations with Madeleine's father, Gerry McCann in recent days, the Chancellor requested assistance from the Foreign Office and the Home Office(...) Asked whether Brown had influenced the decision, Clarence Mitchell, a Foreign Office spokesman for the McCann family in the Algarve, said: 'Draw your own conclusions.' He said in a statement: 'I can confirm that telephone conversations have taken place between Gerry McCann and Chancellor Gordon Brown. During them, Mr Brown offered both Gerry and Kate his full support in their efforts to find Madeleine, although details of the conversations will remain private.'

  1. Again I notice that all the important government people who were and are supporting the Mccanns live(d) and work(ed) far away from Luz: Lisbon,England, Rome...

    Was there something wrong about the British Consul in Portimão at that time and who never showed up?
    Was he against the Mccanns? Did he know the truth?

  2. Virginia the British Consul to the Algarve, Celia Edwards did go to the Portimão PJ station when Madeleine McCann parent's where questioned in 2007.
