Here is one question to mull over.
Over four years ago. What if the Met inquiry has the perfect result and “Our” Maddie is found?
It would become one of the Greatest Stories Never To Be Told.
British Judges would at once impose the one thing the story’s followers -pro and anti McCanns alike – may not have thought of: a complete halt to all media coverage. There would be a total suppression. A black out.
The baying media pack would have nil access and the foundling will never ever be seen in public.
British Judges do not shirk their primary duty to protect a Ward of Court. For instance, you never will know the new whereabouts of the abducted Shannon Matthews.
“Our” Maddie will disappear completely and forever probably along with her sibling twins and Drs Gerry and Kate McCann.
Assuming Madeleine McCann had nothing at all to add to the circumstance surrounding her disappearance, all would be given completely new identities since the parents are instantly recognisable.
We may never hear from them again.
The best you are likely to get is an announcement of the success. No pictures or interviews. No Oprah Winfrey couch (although she is this week on her last ever show). No Fund raising or talks to learned seminars or action groups.
Lost & Found and one of the permanently disappeared, whatever the result of the new inquiry. – AGW
