They are mistaken those who thought that the famous Doctors McCann were travelling to Portugal to assist the first session of the claim filled against Dr. Gonçalo Amaral regarding the temporary injunction, because of ‘insults’ made against them in the book ‘Maddie, The Truth of the Lie’.
They brought more in their luggage: In yet another claim against Gonçalo Amaral (this time for allegedly lying to the Court as to the goods and wages earned), they had in mind a glorious Hollywoodesque entrance, obfuscated by flashes, inundated with questions, with requests for autographs, with swarms of journalists, television channels, anonymous public and a crowd bath similar to the ones of 2007.
A Portuguese lawyer, who said she was in a deep state of stress, accompanied them.
However, God writes straight with crooked lines ... and the virus H1-N1 contaminated the ‘Maddie case’!
Besides the frustration of having entered a court for nothing, they mainly felt the frustration of not having anyone waiting for them to give them that superstars status. Quite the contrary!
The star, this time was the man against whom they voted the entire world's hatred, because he might prove the «Truth» of the lie(s) that they have forged all over the world.
The posters that were seen in the open sun of a winter morning were in support of Gonçalo Amaral.
There was not a single word with «Maddie», «McCann», «fund», «search». NOTHING!
There was a bunch of red carnations that was offered to them, but whose meaning they did not know – it was the «poisoned chalice».
Visibly tense, uncomfortable and disappointed, they went forward with the «plan B» : A PILGRIMAGE TO THE PAST.
It was, after all, what the McCanns really wanted - MEDIA and PROPAGANDA.
They failed in Lisbon ... they headed to the Algarve!
Unfortunately, that theory that “the killer always returns to the crime scene” seems to apply to them.
They returned to the macabre route of the church and rocks on the beach.
It was very clear heard, at the Courthouse door, the failed act of Kate saying that Maddie was entitled to a decent funeral, «...Madeleine has the right to a proper...uhm... a... a proper ... a proper... search »
God be praised! Where (in this context) the adjective «proper» applies to the noun «search»?!? Are there, by chance, «fitting searches», «decent searches», «due searches »....??????????
If she had hesitated in the adjective «right», «accurate», etc…, before saying 'search', it would be different, especially since she was speaking fluently. She was not looking for an exact adjective to define an idea or concept.
Now, PROPER ??????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then, later in Aldeia da Luz, she had another slip, stating that it was THERE where she felt closer to Maddie.
It never went unnoticed the saga of the church key, the prayers made at any time of day or night, always going in and locking themselves inside to meditate.
In cases of extreme agony, it is admissible for the parish priest of any church to facilitate the out of hour’s entrance for the relief and moral support of some parishioner.
But this was not the case.
And so strange and disturbing it became, the Bishop of the Diocese had to intervene in person and order the suspension of all those special meditations behind closed doors.
This happened, I believe, before they rented a car and changed apartments.
By now, and without private key, there it went Kate McCann on a pilgrimage to Praia da Luz, stopping in two places, which according to her, are where she feels the closest to Madeleine - the Church and the rocks from the beach.
Next appears in the British press a story-teller fantasying about «lairs», «traps», «hide outs», probably guarded by giants, monsters, ghosts and goblins, within 10 miles of the Ocean Club, citing examples such as the Austrian abductees , raped and walled up for years without realizing that these were teenagers and that Maddie was a girl-child.
For a paedophile, there is no difference.
However, for a sexual pervert who hides his special prey, there is a difference between a teenager and a little child.
And there is another big, huge difference, too.
We are all inserted in the great European Global Village.
But there are features that distinguish the Latin and Peninsular people from the Anglo-Saxon.
It is an insult to our Culture and to our Institutions, what a half a dozen Anglo-Saxons have been doing at our Lusitanian Coasts.
