The pool photo

1. Introduction

The relevance of the so-called Pool Photo, best known as the Last Photo, has emerged again, with a theory sent to the Attorney General of Portugal by CMoMM group, authored by Peter McCleod, known in the Maddie internet world as PeterMac.

In terms of authorship, even though it’s said that it was from a group of unnamed researchers both British and Portuguese, the only other name that has appeared is that of Paulo Reis, although it’s uncertain if he was a researcher/translator or just a translator.

The article that caused the Last Photo to emerge again did not meet the expected impact or relevance its authors hoped it would have by far. For them it must be a huge disappointment.

28 questions

By suggestion of our friend J, this week we have decided to make a post of the 28 questions that we put to Anon in our post “Very important concessions”.

They were addressed to Anon (please forgive the aggressiveness below but as you know, then we thought you were Insane) and he has replied. We now invite all the paedo-theory believers to answer them (we will not put into our usual italics as it constitutes the entire post):

It seems that being “obsessed” with swinging is apparently off-putting but being OBSESSED with paedophilia is socially acceptable.


We refer readers to the comments section of our post “The paedo offensive” as of our comment made at 8 Mar 2018, 20:53:00.

About the “make-up” photo the debate was quite enlightening but we are still waiting to know from K9 the answers to some questions:

- Why did the Portuguese REQUEST the Gaspar statements? Who tipped them off and when? Why did the British police send them?  (“The Brit snitch”)

- Why did the Gaspars keep in touch and visit the McCanns after that holiday in Majorca in which Mrs Gaspar allegedly witnessed the conversation between David Payne and Gerry McCann? (here and here)

- Why was Mrs Gaspar unable to say to David Payne, thanks for the offer, but we bathe our own kids?

- Why would she be afraid to offend anybody by saying that?

We recommend that our post “TRUTH” be revisited.

Panorama or Propaganda?

More in hope than expectation, we waited to see if Gemma O’Doherty would produce a follow-up to her unexpectedly thin, in terms of new content, article in February, on the Madeleine McCann case.

We have shown that in terms of importance it’s really thick and has caused shock-waves that are still rocking the underground in this case.

As we thought, it wasn’t intended to be the first of a series and nothing more has been written or tweeted by Gemma on this subject. However, there is something we hope she will consider if she ever decides to revive her interest in the subject. Or rather, somebody.

The paedo offensive

1. Introduction

We published our post “Very important concessions” on Friday Feb 16 2018 at 09:00.

In it we have shown how Walkercan1000, Insane’s character as the other side’s top Twitter minion, had been helpful in letting us understand what had happened in the Maddie case when Gemma O’Doherty announced she was going to publish an article about Maddie on Jan 7 and which she did so on Feb 3.

Very important concessions

1. Introduction

It was interesting to watch the reactions to our previous post.

Some immediately saw it as us tearing Gemma O’Doherty from limb to limb when we did no such thing.

Sutton is the name, meddling is the game

1. Introduction

There’s only one certainty about Gemma O’Doherty’s article on the McCanns published on paper edition in the Village Magazine, on Saturday, Feb 3 2017, “Maddie: did the BBC bend the truth?” (published online today, Feb 9 at 14:17) and which is best expressed in a popular Portuguese expression: the mountain gave birth to a mouse [a montanha pariu um rato].

It was disheartening, that’s a fact.

The reliability of the cadaver dogs

1. Introduction

We could start this post with saying that Insane is a sore loser. Or start by saying that he has been very helpful in finding the truth again just because he’s a sore loser.

We won’t do that as when writing this post we are expecting new readers as a result of Gemma O’Doherty’s article, which at the time of writing this, we know nothing about its real content yet.

However, judging by the way Gemma has publicised her article it leaves us with optimism, as all indicates that she’ll make a direct link between the McCanns and Maddie’s death.

That link, hopefully, will finally see the light of day in a public media outlet.

Gemma O'Doherty

We were not going to publish anything this week. Simply for personal reasons.

However, we could not let pass without giving an opinion, however short – and it will be very short – about Gemma O’Doherty’s investigation to be published in the Village Magazine later this month.

About the magazine we would like to highlight what a reader of ours has said about it:

Anonymous 10 Jan 2018, 16:39:00

I think it's important to point out that Village Magazine is a professionally printed magazine which is available in retail outlets, news-stands, etc. It has been around since 2004 and prides itself on investigative journalism. And attempts to sue it have been made on numerous occasions. Please see:

About the investigation itself we will say that we consider it an important event and will not say anything further so as not to influence it in any way.

We would like to make it very clear that we think that Gemma O’Doherty is an absolutely independent journalist – from what we have read about her, we think that is something she’s very proud of – so we are, again to be very clear, not implying she’s playing any game within the game.

We will just say she’s a mass of air about to flow through the board.

She can be from a gentle breeze that will simply refresh the pieces on the board to a full tornado that will throw them all about.

What sort of flux of air she will be, we will wait to see if it will be Hurricane Gemma or a passing breeze.

What we have seen is some quickly reaching for scarfs and coats. That, we must say, has pleased us.

Post for Comments

As the Red Card post is about to overcome the 200 comments, we are publishing this so that our readers can continue to publish their comments.

We are keeping Nigel Nessling on the front cover of the blog.

Red card

(with thanks to Michael Shaw)

1. Introduction

This week, once more we see ourselves with the need to ‘procrastinate’ the analysis of the NPIA Operation Task debrief document which we published 2 weeks ago.

Last week it was because of the demise of the Woman-in-Purple, a fact that we deemed of the utmost importance to the case.

Scratching her from this sick play makes the Maddie case come down to only one of 2 possible outcomes: truth or shambolic archival.

1. Introduction

Last week we left for analysis and consideration a debrief about Operation Task, which was, if we are to believe that document, a Gold police operation set-up to handle the Maddie Case.

We published the debrief without comment to allow our readers to form their own opinion about it.

In the comment we have said that “this report [is] not only interesting but also one very important document to be understood in both its intent and meaning”.

So, it was our intent to write this week about it.

However, we think it’s more opportune at this point in time to register here what we consider to have been a very relevant event in the Maddie case: the demise of the Woman-in-Purple (WIP)

Operation Task

Page 1/42

Now that things are being played at the highest political level, we will sit and watch.

Meanwhile we will leave for the consideration and analysis of our readers, a 2009 document about UK’s involvement in Operation Task or what we call the Maddie case.

Please click on the pictures to read them.

1. Introduction

The biggest challenge to this week’s post was to come up with a title.

First, let’s just say that we were finally going to start our Praia da Luz posts but we were pushed by events and had to delay that once again. Our apologies. Just hoping that when we do get to do them, time won’t make memory more diffuse than it should.

It wasn’t watching Michael Fallon fall that caused that delay as in that we saw nothing surprising. As we said last week we was simply a distracting victim, an attention magnet.

1. Introduction

During my college years, I had one professor who said the words that have guided me throughout life: “all is linked to all”.

Short, precise, concise but filled with… all.

Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has triggered, and rightfully so and about time, a focus without precedent of sexual harassment by powerful men.

Other well-known people have been exposed both as assaulters and as enablers through their silence of harassment occurrences they knew to exist.
