Quick Thought – The Mirror and Madeleine McCann.
Most evenings, BBC2’s Newsnight show a selection of the front page headlines from the national mainstream newspapers. Apparently tomorrows edition of The Mirror will carry the headline “YOU ARE NOT A SUSPECT”, in relation to the Madeleine McCann saga.
Now, I have to admit I was not paying the news particular attention this evening(original post claimed headline was The Sun’s, not the Mirror’s) – I was playing Scrabble – but it seems the Portugese authorities are examining blood found in the McCann’s hotel room, and the investigation is looking at the possibility the girl was killed on the premises, which would rule out abduction. But of course the Mirror couldn’t abide the possibility that white, middle class professionals might well be capable of the most heinous crimes. After all, it’s only single mothers, asylum seekers, benefit cheats, druggies, foreigners, the jobless, muslims, homosexuals, trade unionists, feral children, lefties, immigrants or the mentally ill who do these kind of terrible things!
I’m sure this website will not be the first, or the last, to say to Mr and Mrs McCann, “OH YES YOU ARE.” No offence.
Edit : truth is, I have a hunch for the husband…..
