The Metropolitan Police have been requested to investigate the Madeleine disappearance at a cost of millions to the British taxpayer.

Back in the summer of 2007, a media conveyor belt churned out a succession of former Scotland Yard detectives offering their expertise on the Madeleine disappearance.

A few days after the media juggernaut started rolling, former Flying Squad commander, John O’Connor appeared—initially it would seem as a supporter of the Portuguese Police—on Sky TV. His words offered some great encouragement to the police in Portugal when we saw him on May 12, 2007. O’Connor began…

“First of all I would like to pay tribute to the Portuguese police. I think they’re doing a good job…”

Five days later, he was interviewed by the Algarve’s expat newspaper the Portuguese Resident on May 17.

… O’Connor spoke of the high quality detective work in Portugal and believes that they will solve this case. He spoke of the competency and professionalism of the Portuguese police, dismissing any accusations they have faced. He outlined that they were initially responding to a missing child and not a crime and, therefore, did not think that their initial response should be criticized.

However, months later when the McCanns became suspects, John O’Connor changed his tune when giving an interview to the CBS Early Show in Los Angeles in mid-September 2007.

“You don’t have a body, you don’t have a cause of death, you don’t have any witnesses, you don’t have a confession, you don’t have a murder weapon and you don’t have a motive…
“I think all they’ve got is some arguable forensic evidence…
“If anybody thinks they can bring a murder charge with all those ingredients missing…
“The first crime scenes were not properly sealed…
“Lack of professional activity by the Portuguese investigators…
“What they have is this arguable evidence which in itself does not mean a thing…”

Former Flying Squad commander John O'Connor.

Former Flying Squad commander John O'Connor couldn't make up his mind whether he supported the Portuguese Police or not. In the end he toed the 'official' line and criticised the PJ with a hypocritical interview with CBS.

Considering that Mr. O’Connor did not know any more about the case than the public, he suddenly seemed to be able to deduce many facts from nothing more than rumour. Why then did O’Connor do a complete u-turn with his attitude towards the Portuguese Police? He did not say that the crime scene was not sealed off properly on May 12 or May 17 when he was so supportive of the Portuguese police. O’Connor had actually visited Praia da Luz in those early days to pound the beat so who or what influenced this man to join in the attacks on the investigators?

Next up we saw former Scotland Yard commander Mike Hames and former police dog handler John Barrett. Regarding Barrett, he appeared purely to discredit the results of Martin Grime’s dogs when they discovered the scent of death and traces of Madeleine’s blood in apartment 5A at the Ocean Club Resort in Praia da Luz. Barrett’s disinformation was amateurish and a blatant piece of spin. Hames described the investigation as a “bit of a shambles“.

In late September 2007, Dai Seaborn Davies—a former Chief Superintendent of the Metropolitan Police—chimed in with his own brand of attacks:

“They remain convinced of her parents’ guilt, apparently unwilling to consider another scenario, even as their “house of cards” case collapses around them. Another fresh revelation that undermines the Portuguese effort is that police also failed to take DNA samples from Madeleine’s little brother Sean, two, and his twin sister, Amelie, until their parents were made “arguidos”, or suspects, just over two weeks ago. This failure has seriously undermined the whole forensic case against the McCanns. It means early forensic work is flawed and needs to be re-examined. A process that could take months.

“Evidence gathered by the Portuguese police against the McCanns which we have learned about in the past couple of weeks depends entirely on forensic tests, including DNA evidence, so-called bodily fluids and hair. Yet I have found that evidence has been fatally flawed through their own incompetence. The apartment was also not sealed off properly, meaning any evidence was contaminated from the outset.

Dai Seaborn Davis - shot himself spectacularly in the foot when he stated that the Portuguese Police did not take samples of Sean and Amelie's DNA until a couple of weeks before the McCanns were made arguidos. The PJ had taken samples months before this and we would find the details in the police files released publicly in August 2008.

Dai Davies’ comments were not short, off the cuff comments. These were carefully crafted segments on TV that were designed to bolster Team McCann’s cause while, at the same time, ridiculing the “blundering” Portuguese Police. Always relying on the public’s lack of diligence in checking whether what they said was true or not, Dai Davis was proven wrong when the police file was released in August 2008. The Portuguese Police did take DNA samples from Sean and Amelie months before the date alleged by Davis.

As we have seen, four clowns—Hames, O’Connor, Barrett, Davies—had already made their minds up that the Portuguese Police were inept before they knew the details of the investigation. All were ex-Metropolitan Police.

But the clowns weren’t all from 10 Broadway. Some were from the most famous part of Westminster: Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, David Miliband and others.

Now we have the incumbent Prime Minister—David Cameron—making a personal request to the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Sir Paul Stephenson, to investigate the Madeleine McCann disappearance at a cost of millions to the British tax payer. The Home Office are describing this move as “ludicrous” in the next stage of the “keep-the-McCanns-out-of-a-trial-at-all-costs” charade.

It is well past the time that this charade must stop.

These games are purposely engineered by the government, MI5/6, and the police, and a new investigation will achieve nothing. The column inches devoted to alleged infighting between these groups is nothing more than a smokescreen. The prospect of a new investigation makes for a great sound-bite in 2011, but Until Kate and Gerry McCann and the rest of the Tapas Seven are forced to answer important questions in front of a jury, we may never find out what happened to poor Madeleine.

We may have a new set of clowns but it’s the same old circus.

    Good to see other people have caught on that the Scotland Yard ‘review’ of the evidence is just a continuation of the relentless PR/propaganda campaign to clear the McCanns of any wrongdoing. The conclusion to that review has probably arleady been written by one the McCann’s PR agents.

    The real question is, how have these two maganed to mobolise support form the UK govt and the world’s media. Talk about having friends in high places.

    I would have thought that like the McCanns, he ‘wanted’ to believe they were doing a good job and by making this statement, he was infact ‘supporting’ the PJ. Only time would tell a different picture would emerge. Lets face it, they were hopeless!

    We can live in hope that this will be a thorough “transparent” enquiry as promised but I wouldnt take any bets on it. The Mccanns are laughing all the way to the bank – literally.

    Why oh why cant someone in authority actually take a stand.

    At the very least they are guilty of child neglect and should be accused and found guilty of that.

    Just check out these sites. Gaspars srtatement, cadaver dogs McCanns apartment, D notice Gordon Brown. Everyone is asking the sample question, why is this missing child getting so much attention. It is pretty obvious what we have here is a pedophile ring with others from high places involved. This one cop stars, you don’t have a body, you don’t have a witness, you don’t have a motive, you only have circumstantial evidence. Ok Mr Connors, take the case of Collin Stagg, you had a body, you didn’t have a motive, your didn’t have a witness, you didn’t have circumstantial evidence, all you had was a guy regularly walks his dog in the murder area and what do you do? You charge him with murder, very efficient I must say. As for this case I can give you a motive, the child is starting to grow up and is mentioning things about pedophile activity, things that the McCanns see as embarrassing and a threat to their future, and the only way to protect that future is dispose of the child. I witnessed a similar case years ago with a British Peado who had adopted a Indian girl who when she was 14 still had the mind of a child of 6 and she started to joke with local people of what she amend this Roger had been doing, as far as she was concerned it was a game.

    For what it’s worth I think (well hope) that this is the beginning of the end for the McCanns.

    I know it looks like yet another media circus, and I hope that it doesn’t end up being one, but what I have at the back of my mind, and what I’ve suspected for some time is that politics played a huge role in the obvious cover up of the truth.

    Now it’s all well and good having powerful political friends in high places, but the flip side to that is you automatically inherit an equal number of political enemies, and your powerful friends in high places will not always be powerful, or in the same high positions – at some point in the future those high powered positions will be filled by your enemies.

    Now is that time, and while it may have been in the interests of the then government to cover up for friends who some suspect may be linked to child abuse allegations involving then senior ministers, maybe even the Prime Minister, it isn’t in the interests of the now government to do the same thing.

    And so I hope that the McCanns are now pawns in a new political game that will not be quite so friendly to them.

    I hope that this Crimewatch “reconstruction” is, rather than being a further attempt to obfuscate the truth, to allow the introduction of new evidence that will see the rightful people brought to justice, of course the real aim being the decimation of political rivals when the true extent of the truth, the involvement, and the depravity of certain political figures and one particular party becomes known.

    Well that’s what I’m hoping anyway, one of the photofits does bear a striking resemblance to one of the key players, if the aim was to misdirect I’m sure it wouldn’t look the slightest bit like him.

    Do you think McCann was swopped with Madeline rider?

    I believe Gerry McCann desired a paedophile experience. I believe that he chose his daughter as his victim because this would engage less people in the crime, the obvious advantage being that the rape and murder of his own child would be more difficult to expose if fewer people involved in the procurement of a child to fulfill his paedophile desire. Sedatives are a common factor in the modus operandi of paedophiles. I believe a non English speaking nation that could be perceived and discredited in the popular imagination as somehow “not quite as diligent as we Brits in criminal investigation” was deliberately chosen as the site for the crime. An overseas nation also added a sense of “randomness” to the “abduction” story that would have been absent from committing the crime on home soil. This “randomness” also conflates with the “fewer people involved” advantage. I believe that at least one of the tapas crowd was “in on it” and also partook in the assault and murder of Madeleine.
