Here she is! Kate McCann off on her whirlwind tour of the world, next stop Brussels (not quite Rome by private jet to meet the Pope, but hey…) to wow the crowds with a plea for a Europe-wide database for when you leave your children in their room on their own with the door unlocked while you go down and have a couple of glasses of holiday wines and someone comes in and nicks that kid…
Not so happy, apparently, about being asked by the Portuguese police to take part in a reconstruction (well, how would it look? ‘You go to sleep. Mummy and daddy have very important drinks waiting!’)
Or about the revelation that the night before the abduction – apparently by her own admission – she left Madeleine alone and crying in that apartment (the lure of the old Mateus Rose very hard to resist…)
The spokesman of superstar mum KMC – who was clutching a photograph of Madeleine while addressing the Euro MPs – has refused to confirm or deny the leaked report of the abandoned crying child, dodging the issue by saying, ‘We are extremely concerned such material, if it is authentic, has apparently been leaked’.
Yeah, that’s what we’re concerned about as well.
