The McCanns Crystal ball

The ' good doctors' once more predicting the future and knowing for sure the seven year old schoolgirl will not be home by Spring. I cannot make my mind up, whether they are both completely insane, or the two most evil people to have ever walked the planet.

The McCanns, whose daughter disappeared a month ago, also disclosed how they are drawing up a long-term strategy to keep Madeleine's plight in the public eye. They are hoping JK Rowling, the author, will consent to a bookmark bearing Madeleine's photograph being inserted into the final instalment of the Harry Potter series, due to be published next month. They are also planning a "Madeleine Day" as well as a series of concerts, sports and arts events.

"We want a big event to raise awareness that she is still missing," Mr McCann, 38, said. "It will be some sort of focus around an anniversary. We might have a sporting event, something arts, something music. We have also had backing from certain musical celebrities such as Elton John."

It is now a month since Madeleine was abducted from the family's apartment in Praia da Luz in the Algarve. Her parents were eating supper in a nearby tapas bar when she was snatched while she slept on the evening of May 3.

Madeleine and her siblings, two-year-old twins Amelie and Sean, had been left alone, although their parents were checking on their children every 30 minutes.

From their base in Praia da Luz, the couple, both doctors, also spoke yesterday of their guilt but said they refused to blame each other for their daughter's disappearance a month ago.

"We are in this together and, of course we feel guilty, we feel that we've let her down, we were not there at the moment she was abducted," Mr McCann said. "But we have never subconsciously or consciously thought it was Kate's fault or my fault - we're a couple in this, we're responsible parents."
