Look at the poor McCanns. Dragged out to Portugal for a libel trial THEY are bringing against someone who wrote a book that… Oh, you can imagine. Still, there might be money in it.
The thing is, no sooner had they got to court to pursue the case that they had brought, that the person they were suing sacked his lawyer, meaning wasted trip. So inconvenient! And you know how the McCanns don’t do inconvenient.
Now they love Portugal – the tapas are tippedy-top and no mistaking – but seriously? ‘Mr Amaral…’ the one they’re suing, ‘…is not the victim in this’, said Mrs. McCann, detailing all the arrangements she and her husband had had to make to get to Lisbon. ‘Every time we come here we have to make arrangements for our children to be looked after…’ she continued, seemingly oblivious to the irony that if they had made arrangements to have their children looked after in the first place…
'Every time we come here we have to make arrangements for our children to be looked after,' complain the McCanns as they get to Portugal. Do we even need to say what we're thinking?,
