Them pesky Portugueses, who had the sheer nerve to enter a competitor into the Eurovision Song Contest at a time when every last Portuguese national should have been searching under their beds for the child her own parents were too busy having a greasy tapas meal to look after, have been at it again. Not doing their job, that is.
This image from CCTV which is clearly Maddy McC, or a child trying to pass herself off as Maddy, was never investigated by them Portuguese. Too busy eating delicious rice muffins and mini-custard tarts for that, oh yes.
At a time when the McCann’s were asking every last owner of a five-year-old blonde child to restyle their hair and dye it black just so that Maddy and her trademark blonde bob would stand out from the crowd, this and other images of children ‘bearing a remarkable resemblance to the missing five-year-old’ were sent to the Portuguese police and were not followed up.
Honestly! What can their excuse for not deploying every last police officer in the country be?
