Dr.Martin Roberts in agreement with Blacksmith..


By Dr Martin Roberts
29 January 2010

In the course of the recent appeal hearing in Lisbon vis-à-vis the injunction on Goncalo Amaral's book, The Truth of the Lie, mention was made of the McCann's lies during the initial stages of the Portuguese investigation into Madeleine's Disappearance. John Blacksmith (The Blacksmith Bureau) has now eloquently and forthrightly reminded us that the McCanns have lied from beginning to end; a statement he feels able to make without fear of being challenged for libel because the claim proves to be true.

The abduction of Madeleine McCann is, in fact, a 'sky lantern' and with the business end of the McCanns' libel action now approaching, here is an 'over' of 'spin bowling' which Goncalo Amaral and his team would be perfectly entitled to deliver:

1. Cuddle cat found abandoned on high ledge (report carried by several newspapers and attributed to Kate McCann).

Cuddle cat was actually photographed by the police alongside the pillow, on what is supposed to have been Madeleine’s bed.

2. Interviewed by Paris Match, 4.9.2007:

: We have replied to all the questions that have been put to us and we will continue to do so, whatever the new information might be.
Of course, we shall be completely honest.

: We have said everything we know and responded to everything that we have been asked.

Replied? Responded?

Police questions unanswered by KM: 48

(clearly graduates of the Mitchell school of political circumvention).

3. KM: "If what happened hadn't happened I would not have thought it important."

But Kate thought 'it' important enough to have already discussed 'it' independently with two witnesses at least, before 'what happened' had happened at all.

4. Madeleine only ever answered to that name. Use of 'Maddie' coined by the press to fit headlines. "We never called her that." (KM).

"But she hated it when we called her 'Maddie'. She'd say, 'My name is Madeleine', with an indignant look on her face." (Woman's Own, 13 August 2007).

5.(a) GM Witness Statement 4 May, 2007: Thus, at 9.05pm, Gerry entered the apartment using his key, the door being locked
(b) GM Witness Statement 10 May, 2007: He effected his normal path until the back doors, which were closed but not locked.

The last delivery of the over has to be the 'jemmied shutters' story put about by Philomena McCann and other family members, none of whom were any nearer Portugal at the time than their own front doors and all of whom had been contacted directly by either Kate or Gerry McCann immediately after the first alarm bells were rung in Praia da Luz.

That story was a myth. The reality was articulated subsequently by Clarence Mitchell:

6. (a) Jon Corner, godparent to the McCanns' twins, said: "She was in an absolutely hysterical state - very, very distressed. She blurted out Madeleine had been abducted.

"Kate said the shutters of the room were smashed."

(b) Brian Healy Grandfather:

"Gerry told me when they went back the shutters to the room were broken, they were jemmied up and she was gone,"

"There was no evidence of a break-in," said Mr Mitchell (The McCanns' spokesperson - Irish Independent, 25 October 2007).
