  2. Sounds great! I hope lots of people show up and Dr Amaral's book is a best seller. I hope the other authors do well too. Lucky, lucky people who get to meet the handsome Mr Amaral. Mrs Amaral is beautiful so I'm sure she will not mind the gushing. Hope not.

  3. Why are the powers in Portugal so afraid of the Maccanns, the reopening of this case rest's firmly at the feet of the justice system in Portugal,in reality all they are are two british doctors, why have they been so well protected, why are they allowed to carry on with this charade. Brown will be out in 2 weeks time that is almost certain, 1 down how many more to go before we have the wall of lies down and justice served.

    this really should be on the NOTW review thread but this petition is worth a revisit when the goverment didn't think a review would be at all helpful!

  7. I will only be happy when the Madeleine investigation (not any empty 'seqarches') case is re-opened.

  8. The English Gag, not available in English, which speaks for itself!

    But this is good news, thank you. I hope 'Our Woman In Lisbon' will be able to attend :D and remind Gonçalo Amaral of the continuing support he has here in the UK.

    Here's wishing every success to the authors and publishers at the Lisbon Book Fair!

  11. Any news about freedom of speech in the UK?
    Are the candidates of all political parties planning to do something about it?

  12. Very best wishes to Mr. Amaral on his latest book.

  13. One cannot help but wonder if the all-powerful and protected by people in high places McCanns will have this book banned next. I hope not, as the profits from "The English Gag" should help Mr Amaral pay the million the celebrity child-neglectors will inevitably be awarded at the pre-decided libel trial later this year.

  14. This is very positive news even if the Mccanns attempt to block this the publicity it will generate will reach the public domain as did the last court case and made many more people aware of the underhand activities of camp mccann - well done Sr Amaral soon this book will be available in the United Kingdom in every book shop, freedom of speech cannot be suppressed forever especially by self serving criminal suspects.

  15. "Any news about freedom of speech in the UK?"

    I think it would be a very good innovation.

  17. I really wish i could go to buy the book and to say what a lot of us want to, that he is a honorable man who has just been trying to get justice for a innocent 3 year old child who the media, press, goverments, and some police are happy to forget to protect the people behind her so called "abduction"!!Oh and i see Lorraine Kelly will be doing her fawning and arse licking and interviewing the MCCANNS next wednesday, and i thought that awful women could not get any lower!!!

  18. Do you think Isabel Duarte and her team are getting ready for another "GAG" ? You would think by now with all the paperwork that they took from the PJ, they would have started looking for Missing Madeleine.

  19. Dont forget you can still add your name to the petition calling libel laws in the UK to be reformed. So far 5,1320 people have signed including celebrities click onto

    http://libelreform.org/pledge-wall

    Lets all try to get these ridiculous outdated laws and super injunctions changed. Freedom of expression is to precious to lose.

  20. Good luck to Amaral.

    It appears that he has ou classed the McCanns again (he did say he understood how the criminal mind works!).

    English gag extends to read British Gerry! CEOP is about as useful to you as a real bucket of whitewash. Only the PJ reopening the case will do Gerry.

  23. Good news! I wish Goncalo Amaral, a light in the darkness as far as justice for Madeleine is concerned, every success with his latest book! I just hope he watches his back though!

  24. God bless you Sr Amaral, in this dark world the Mccanns inhabit you are clearly a shining light! May we soon see justice for Maddie.

  25. Thank you Joana for all your research and hard work - FREEDOM OF SPEECH FOR ALL.

  26. I thought Mr Amaral had been stopped from selling his book, how is this allowed to go ahead.
    Good Luck Mr A, I like the way this is been done on the 3rd anniversary of Maddies "Death"
    Remember Mr A, 2 more weeks of Gordon then hopefully things regarding this sad case will change for the better.

  27. Poster 26 is obviously thinking of Mr Amaral's first book "The Truth Of The Lie". The McCanns have not got their equally odious legal representatives to stop the publication of "The English Gag". Not yet anyway. Poster 26 is also I think being over optomistic and hoping that things will change for the better if Mr Brown is beaten in the General Election. This ghastly pair are well protected not only by the British Establishment but by people in high places in Portugal also. Mr Amaral has sadly no chance of winning the forthcoming libel trial.

    =======================
    I wouldn't raise my hopes on that happening. IMO Cameron is as shifty as the rest of them and don't forget he's got Clarence Mitchell involved with the party now. That says it all for me.
