Asking: How Come Some People Dislike The McCanns So Much?

Ted Obvious writes from Praia da Luz: Why is it that some people seem to dislike Kate and Gerry McCann so much? I mean, they’ve lost their daughter Madeleine, who’d vanished from their holiday apartment in May 2007, and have been looking for her since then. And though on that fateful night they left their three small kids, including Maddy, all alone while they were having dinner with their friends, it’s not like they flew to another town and were having fun without a care in the world.

It’s a hard-hitting question reflecting...

The McCanns Should Always Remind Parents Not To Leave Their Small Children Alone

R.F.Wilson writes from Lisbon: We are a funny website, but sometimes we like to get serious and talk about things that aren’t funny. Like the search for Madeleine McCann that will now resume, in the glare of publicity, after more than fours years. The chances  that Kate and Gerry McCann would find her daughter alive are very slim, to put it mildly. I’d even say they are zero. But they still push on, having dragged Prime Minister David Cameron into the whole thing, who, being a former PR man, couldn’t resist the temptation to have a bit of free publicity for himself. Still, where there’s hope there’s always a chance that Madeleine might be found alive. The only problem is that every time the McCanns are coming up with some high profile effort to raise the public’s...
