The McCanns Are A Nasty Couple . But A reflection Of Our Times !

R.F.Wilson writes from London: How dare the McCanns take us all for idiots! The have effectively commercialised child abduction, manipulating the press to the full, and now they have the nerve to insist that the media was harassing them and intruding into their personal life.

If Kate and Gerry McCann, who have become a double act of sorts, had any common sense they wouldn’t have appeared at the Leveson inquiry today, to give their account of how the press hounded them. They should consider themselves lucky that they were not prosecuted both in Portugal and Britain for child neglect. And the supposedly hostile media that they now blame for their distress and suffering actually gave them an easy ride, considering that their daughter Madeleine had vanished when they were having a meal with their friends.

Some people wonder why is it that this otherwise unremarkable couple is treated as if they are some sort of celebrities. Well, let me tell you why it happened: first of all, the McCanns have used the media to the full, behaving as if everyone else was to blame for Madeleine’s disappearance but not them. And, secondly and more importantly, the Anything Goes mafia that has become mighty powerful in recent decades is promoting them hard, basically saying that parents should think about themselves first and about the their children second and third.

The message is: go party and enjoy yourselves and leave your kids to themselves.

 No worries, you’re f..king worth it! more
