Oprah Winfrey’s Heart Broke 46

Just heard on Sky News:

“Oprah Winfrey has revealed how her heart broke when she interviewed Kate and Gerry McCann.”

Great News! Oprah Winfrey’s dead! How did she reveal it though? In a seance? At the post mortem when her diaphragm was opened?

This disgusting McCann couple at the very most charitable interpretation, left tiny children all alone in a foreign hotel room while they were off having fun. More than once. I can think of much worse possibilities. When will the media stop promoting them?

    Craig, off topic I’m afraid but I was wondering if you are going to write a post on Samantha Orobator? I recall you writing an excellent piece on the drugs smuggling that occurred in Ghana. (‘I am sick of the easy presumption by large sections of the media, whenever a British person is arrested abroad on drugs charges, that they are being unfairly dealt with by a tinpot state, and have been set up by evil foreigners.’)

    I just don’t understand why the media thinks that showing VT of the mother calling for her expectant daughter to come home is going to make any difference.(‘”I’m just appealing to the British government, to the Laos authorities, to just please release her. They should just bring her back to me.”) I see the mother didn’t deny her daughter had smuggled the heroin. And she got pregnant in prison which sounds like a cynical way to try and get off.

    I’d be very interested to hear your take on this one.

    I have never understood how or why the McCanns got so much publicity. There are children going missing in the UK and in other European countries all the time — in cases where there was no negligence by parents — and they don’t get the same coverage. What is their secret?

    “undergo interrogation under truth drugs”

    You do realise that such drugs don’t exist, right? wikipedia suggests alleged truth drugs work by placebo – the subject believes they cannot lie, therefore they cannot lie. Kinda like the stuff Derren Brown does.

    I’m not a parent, and I’m sure that you (and other readers who are parents) have a better psychological insight into such matters, so pardon me if I’m being naive, but what can be gained by adding to the suspicions against people who have appeared to have suffered a great misfortune, namely the kidnap of a child?

    I must admit that (as anticant says) there’s something a bit odd about the whole business – for me, the fact that the kidnapper/s knew when to strike – although, if they were being watched by criminals, that would explain it.

    Watch subrosa’s documentary link; even if you believe in the McCann’s innocence, the documentary will leave you feeling that a cover-up has been imposed.

    As a country boy, I have a lot of respect for the nose of dogs; and having witnessed the training of sniffer dogs, I’m inclined to believe the Portuguese conclusion: that the child died in the flat, and the parents effected a cover-up.

  • anticant

    dreoilin – a possible answer to why they have received so much high-level support is suggested in the link I posted.

    Whether it’s true or not, I’ve believed from the outset that there’s a lot more in this case than meets the eye.

    As I’ve said previously, I spent several holidays in Praia da Luz in the 1990s, and it’s an off-track, sleepy little place where a lot of British expats live – not at all a likely focus for child molesters.

  • subrosa

    Yes Merkin that’s the one. Can’t understand why you didn’t see it with my link but pleased you’ve found it. It’s certainly worth viewing the main points.

  • Abe Rene

    Juse seen the video by the ex-investigator from the Portuguese police (Thanks Merkin on Paris), which is certainly eye-opening and suggests that accidental death, not kidnapping may have occurred. The question then is, if it were a tragic accident, why would a parent try to get rid of the body? Odd business, the whole thing ..

  • CT

    Allegedly …. instead of paying a child-minder, a sleeping draft was administered by a medically-trained parent who had taken one pre-dinner aperitif too many to permit an accurate dosing calculation.

    The tragic result was ‘disappeared’.

    All sounds quite plausible to me …

  • Abe Rene

    An experienced medical doctor, not under stress but on holiday, lethally miscalculating a dosage which he had already given to his other children doesn’t sound too plausible to me. But if it weren’t a tragic accident the alternatives seem much more ominous.

  • anticant

    There was a child-minding service available at the holiday complex which the McCann’s chose not to use.

  • anticant

    Also, it seems strange that this happened on the last night of their holiday.

    For amateur sleuths:

    Here’s a URL to a photograph (Picture VI) of the apartment and nearby club:


    I searched on google earth for the location corresponding to this photograph. Evidently North and South are inverted in in it. The coordinates of the Eastern point of the swimming pool are 37 05 18N, 8 43 51W, and you can type this text into Fly To and zoom in.

    Now if the body were transported by car, where and how would someone in a hurry dispose of it? They would have well under an hour, so they could not have gone further than 10, max 20, miles from the place. Where would be the obvious place to chuck a body? If you thought ‘in the sea’ we’re on the same wavelength. But where? Beyond the beaches, deep enough to make sure that if a body tied to a stone were chucked it, it would be fairly sure to feed the fishes. Looking at google earth, there seem to be some dark blue patches along the coastline – if those are deeper waters then there’s possibilities. I found three at 37 04 54.34 (39.09, 34.88)N, 8 44 15.71(37.82, 52.89)W.

    Anyone been there and know of a suitable place? Then phone Lt. Columbo (or whoever his Portuguese equivalent is)!

    You’ve all gotten off topic and distracted from the real enemy – Oprah Winfrey. She had temporarily run out of people to exploit and has now chosen to go to Britain to find victims. Please have your immigration authorities get involved or your Home Office or whatever.

    We must all work together to stop Oprah Winfrey.

  • Jonathan

    Numerous apartments and cars checked by the British sniffer dogs and the only ones to yield results for cadaverine and blood are those used by the McCanns.

    So much more about this case that stinks; Google around for the Portuguese police evidence DVD.

    Madeleine McCann was not abducted.

  • Abe Rene

    This “Lyn” is a link to an explicitly racist website using the N-word. Censor Craig, do your duty!

  • anticant

    It’s totally barmy. Don’t censor it – post rude comments on it.

  • Abe Rene

    Refuting it (and removing the ‘link’ information) might be an alternative to deleting it, of course.

  • anticant

    There’s nothing to refute. It simply says “White = good, black = bad”. The writer is very lucky, having apparently never met a nasty white person…..

  • Jaded

    Lyn seems to have figured out that something is really fukked up. Shame she can’t look beyond colour to see some truth.
