Say what you like about Textusa, at least she is environmentally friendly. This entire post is recycled from shitty bits of others.
Basically what we have here is a patchwork quilt of the purest, finest shite, stitched together by blind Belgian nuns, to a background of Gregorian chant from the Textaloons
Thank you, Professor
The Narrative of Negligence
Fred tells the kids a bedside story from their mum's latest book ''Fairy tales that will fuck you up good and proper'' (Available Amazon, £12.99)
It’s said and we fully agree that there’s nothing worse than a parent losing a child.It’s so horrific that no language without exception has an adjective for it. A person who loses a parent is an orphan and one who loses a husband or wife is a widower or a widow.
Except turning such a loss into a catchphrase, of course
Clutter is anything which does not fit with Textusa's rabid theoryThe McCanns have suffered a nothing-worse, they have lost a child.Yet they and others have extraordinarily been able to make this nothing-worse even worse. That, by all standards, is an outstanding feat. A disgusting and a pitiful one but phenomenal.And all including them making this nothing-worse even worse with the McCanns smiling and grinning.We’re specifically talking about negligence, one of the two major clutters the Maddie case has, the other being paedophilia.
The Gaspar statements pre-date Yvonne Martin's statement, halfwit.About paedophilia no one has very little doubt as to when and by who this clutter – even if we believe it genuine – was planted: Yvonne Martin in her statement of June 12.She had, supposedly, sent an anonymous letter earlier but in terms of contact that the case has with paedophilia is when the British senior social worker resident in Sargaçal first gives a statement to the PJ.After Yvonne Martin, came the Gaspars and then the empty CATS file.
The empty CATS file is meaningless, which you know
You don't know that, and that is not indicated in the communications between the two forcesAgain, supposedly the Gaspars spoke in May but in terms of process their statements are only known by the PJ in October.
It's perfectly reasonable that it should be considered in the light of a missing child. After family and friends, a paedophile is the next most likely to commit a crime of this natureThe paedophilia narrative in the Maddie case is quite simple and easy to follow.Three seeds were planted and they became a forest because so much was and is the water poured on them by many a good people blinded by the want to repair somehow the viciousness that this sort of crime involves whenever it is, unfortunately, real.
Hardly surprising, given that he is the one about whom the allegation was madeThe paedophilia narrative has a very clear target, David Payne.
Why is that relevant?He had lost nothing. He lost no child.
Opinion based on absolutely no evidence, but rather your own narrative you have promoted via this blog.Some of us are of the opinion that something occurred between him and Kate McCann which led to the accidental death of Maddie.
You can't possibly make that claim as you do not know.Whatever happened did not involve paedophile activity by anyone, either before or on the day of her death.
You claim he was involved - you do not base this on any evidence, it's just a story you inventedIn our opinion, his direct involvement in the events surrounding Maddie’s death earns him being branded with the stigma.
What? Can you try that again in any recognisable language, as some of my readers struggle a bit with twattish?That being true then one can even justify this branding as a sentence given by some obscure parallel justice system that overrode the legitimate one for a various number of reasons.
It is perfectly clear. There are multiple witnesses to the fact that the McCanns left their children unattended each evening and went to dinner. You try to escape this inescapable conclusion by inventing a complex, convoluted and frankly ridiculous narrative in which everyone is ''in on it''But the negligence narrative, unlike the paedophilia one, is not as clear.
The only ''Narrative'' is the swinging one. Complete bullshit dreamed up by someone with a fetishistic interest in the practice. ie, you.
No, their response is that the parents went out. Because they did. As testified by numerous witness and confirmed by the existence of paper recordsNarrative meaning is “created by establishing that something is part of the whole and usually that something is the cause of something else…. Groups, communities, societies and cultures also preserve collections of typical narrative meanings in their myths, fairy tales, legends, histories and stories… Stories fill our lives in the way water fills the lives of fish. Stories are so all-pervasive that we practically cease to be aware of them… we develop storied accounts that give sense to the behaviour of others…” (Steve Denning)In the McCann story, the Narrative of Neglect (NoN) has become an all-pervasive myth. Ask any person with the most limited knowledge of the case and their response is likely to be something along the lines of“Those doctors who left their children alone whilst they went out for the evening.” Or with the addition of “when they went out drinking”.
The fact that they left the children alone whilst they dined out is not a myth. Your claim that the resort was being used by swingers, is.With myths and fairy stories, it’s often impossible to establish their origins. Other times its origins become a myth themselves lost in the web of ideas and perceptions with which we form ideas about a subject.
Because it is what happenedWith the NoN we all think it was us, each one of us, who came up with it.We all think that before what was an obvious situation of negligence we came to the conclusion that there had been neglect.Maybe if we had been given time to absorb the details of the story we would have come with it but truth is we didn’t. Others spoon-fed it to us.Negligence, like Smithman did with the Smiths came to us and like he did with them, it forced itself on us.
RubbishLike with the Smithman who could have been seen without making any close contact with that family but decided not to run that risk and so forced that contact, so those responsible for spreading the NoN did the exact same.
No, it was known from the earliest days of this case that the children had been left home alone. No-one had to wait for a blogger two years down the line.They didn’t let us wait and discover for ourselves. They took no chances on that. They made NoN walk our way and go against us like the clumsiest of pedestrians on a sidewalk.They made sure we noticed it.The NoN has a dated source, noted by the author of “The Cracked Mirror”, written in 2009.
So to sum up, the author rightly says that the McCanns tried to get their defence in first. Which they did. Mainly by playing down the situation in which they left the children. So that's nothing like your claim, is it?Chapter 12 “ May 4- The Performance of a Lifetime”“… nothing that followed was as astonishing as the achievements of Gerry McCann on May 4, before news management began to feature in “the narrative.”
Incredibly, at the time that Kate McCann was giving her statement to the police that afternoon, as well as being reminded of the secrecy rules, the media were already carrying the full unsupported and inaccurate McCann version in detail…… the unprompted denial, even at this ridiculously early stage, that the parents had been in any way neglectful or at fault ….. it was all done using the clan and “friends.”
By the time the police car carrying the pair pulled into Portimao police headquarters that morning, Sky had been well briefed with the parents’ story. And so had GMTV. So had BBC1 news. So had BBC2 Newsnight. So had all the important UK dailies.”The author describes perfectly the launch of a myth, the NoN. He even tells us who launched it.“Madeleine’s uncle Michael Wright” (he was actually Kate’s cousin by marriage to her cousin Anne Marie)
“The evidence clearly shows that Gerry McCann, far from passing on to his circle only chaotic first impressions or mistaken interpretations of what had happened immediately after the disappearance, quite clearly hammered home certain key information for many hours after the disappearance which he intended them to pass on to the media. Madeleine’s uncle, Michael Wright, made this quite clear on the same day …”The author then refers to an article by The Standard:“This laziness - or misdirection - with the facts of the disappearance of the child was in stubborn contrast to the way the much less important matter of the parents’ activities was reported”.The McCanns, said the story “were eating at a Tapas restaurant in the Mark Warner Ocean Club complex but had been checking on their children every 30 minutes. The restaurant is within sight of their apartment.” No vagueness there, no possible “misunderstandings” by relatives of “early panicky comments” by Gerry. Dead on.… And then the Standard had this:“Michael Healy [this was Michael Wright], the missing girl’s uncle, added: “There has been some negative spin put on this, with people criticising them for leaving the kids and going on the tear.” Mr Healy added, “But it’s nonsense, they were close by and were eating within sight of where the children were and checking on them. Other members of the group were checking on her as well. No one was rip roaring drunk. ””The author then poses a most telling question about this “on the tear story” (the idiomatic expression being Irish/ Liverpool, meaning to go out on a drinking spree, tear rhyming with hair):““Negative spin” and “criticism.” How could there be any spin or criticism of the parents by Friday afternoon when these were the very people telling the world for the first time what had happened the previous night for the first time and when the pair hadn’t given their statements to the police?”Apart from the author writing this was a pre-emptive defence of their conduct and child supervision, he draws no further inferences.
Yes, I'm sure he would......He may object to the inference we draw from Wright’s statement
So if your belief is contrary to the author's view, why are you trying to use their, excellent, blog to shore up your own, which is written by a well-known gobshite?– that the NoN was an essential myth, without which an abduction was IMPOSSIBLE. That’s why, contrary to the author’s view, we have the strongest opinion it wasn’t a less important matter than the details of the disappearance.
And also because they could not claim that had been checking every 15 minutes when they had already told the police it was every 30The NoN has successfully established itself in the consciousness of the majority of those who have taken any interest in this story.It has led to numerous heated debates on the distance between the Tapas bar and the restaurant, calls for the McCanns to be prosecuted for neglect, arguments about the frequency of the checks on the children, questions as to why Matt Oldfield didn’t actually enter the room when he made his fabled check at 9.30….And how often were the checks made on May 3?Transcript of TV interview with Sandra Felgueiras and the McCanns (video above from HideHo) and full video here from Xklamation).“SF - ...[how] he could have had the opportunity to get into the apartment if you were checking the apartment every 15 minutes?Gerry - [reacts by raising his hand towards SF] Huh... How often did you say we were checking?SF - 15 minutes...Gerry - That’s not what we’ve said...
SF - No?
Gerry - ...it’s been widely reported it was about 30 minutes. Now, that’s what our checks were.”Why did Gerry react so indignantly when asked by an interviewer about checks every 15 minutes, correcting her immediately to confirm the checks were actually every 30 minutes? Because, as we have suggested, no prospective abductor observing 15 minute intervals between checks is likely to continue with his plan.
The first and the third are what they claimed. The second is cobblersThe NoN has three main ingredients:- The parents were not present when Maddie was taken;- The checks of 30 minutes were the minimum needed for an abductor to act;- The T9 thought they were acting responsibly because of their proximity to the Tapas and their checking system.
Bullshit. You know the table was there and I am sure you rue the day you made the ridiculous claim that it didn't exist, so there could have been no dinnersAnd the BIG ROUND TABLE? A mistake. Had they said the rectangular tables were put together to make room for them all, we would have been none-the-wiser about the Tapas dining myth.
Have you ever even bothered to read the statements? It clearly states they were not all sat together, and that the families arrived at different times.Given their description of all of them, including children – 17 in total (we presume with some in high chairs next to the table), gathered around a table for the Millenium breakfast, is it possible this is what lodged in their consciousness when describing the BRT?
This report has nothing to do with Mrs Fenn. You have rather stupidly misrepresented it in your haste to pin it on her. This has been pointed out to you several times before, but you're a bit thick and you probably think people don't notice.For a myth to take hold of the imagination, it needs the sustenance of repetition. After Wright’s statement to the press, we have this:On May 16 2007, GNR officer Paulo Carvalhosa da Costa (Carvalhosa misspelled as Carvaihosa in the original PJ Files) stated that on May 4 he arrived at the Ocean Club at 00.05. When asked, he said he never saw Robert Murat in all the times he visited the scene:“He does remember, on a day he cannot recall, an individual who identified himself as Robert, saying that he was in PdL as a translator helping the PJ, phoned the Lagos post saying:
That some foreign women, who had already been questioned by the Judiciary Police had phoned him, communicating that in a apartment near them there was a child crying.”Up to this date only Mrs Fenn has said she heard a child crying.
You are a duplicitous cow, aren't you?This suggests it was her who may have been the “women” – probably a plural heard by Carvalhosa da Costa where there was none. Although she did not make an official statement until August 20 2007, when she reported hearing crying, which persisted for 75 minutes in the apartment below at 22.30 on May 1st, it’s likely that she had spoken to the police before this statement was taken.
Let's have the full quote
'' That some foreign women, who had already been interviewed by the police, had phoned him, telling him that there was a child crying in an apartment near to them.''
Murat never indicated that he spoke to Mrs Fenn, nor is there any
reason to suggest it is her. He spoke of ''women'' in the plural, who
had already been interviewed, and refers to them again in the
plural, as ''them'' But you decided to cut the quote off before the
end of the sentence and insert a full stop which is not there.
And the only possible reason you would have to do so, is to
attempt to deceive
It wasn't.If this was indeed Mrs Fenn,
She didn'tthen she had phoned Robert Murat at a very early stage.
He says it occurred ''on a day he could not recall''Presumably, Murat had not just phoned Carvalhosa da Costa a couple of days before the 16th or the officer would have been more precise in his recall of when he spoke with Murat.
Which part of that don't you understand?
He said he could not recall the date. Are you thick?Murat’s call to Carvalhosa da Costa must, therefore, have been before May 14th and the crying call conversation must have been made by the woman to Murat on or before May 14th.
She is not the person being referred toWhy would Mrs Fenn phone Murat unless she already knew the family and had their phone number?
There was no need to clarify it. Unlike you, they can read all the way to the end of the sentencePerhaps Murat has clarified this situation in his December interview with Scotland Yard officers?
Of course. But that does not mean they didWe find it perfectly natural for two ex-pat families living down the road from one another in a small village like Praia da Luz to know details of each other such as phone numbers.
Why should it? It's not her responsibilityMrs Fenn sustained the neglect scenario with her heart-breaking description of a child crying “Daddy, Daddy.” Having been the alleged victim of a burglary in her own apartment, it didn’t occur to her to alert the Ocean Club reception and ask them to check if a child had been left unattended, or to see if the child may have been crying in the presence of a parent or childminder.
Don't be ridiculous. Anyone can tell the difference between a baby and a toddler cryingInstead, she phones her friend Edna Glyn, after listening to the crying for half an hour! She was also surprisingly precise in her statement that this was an older child (Maddie rather than the twins) How could she possibly know the age of a child from the repetition of those words?
You see, this is where you really are dim. The McCanns tried in the early days to create the impression that the flat had been locked - it was stated by their relatives. They tried to play down the extent of the neglect, not lessen it.Kate herself, astonishingly, makes sure we know about the abandonment of the children by confirming that Maddie had asked why no-one had come when she and Sean were crying.She doesn’t bother to seek clarification about what had happened and allegedly was obviously happy to leave the children again, after hearing this plaintive question.Many critics of the McCanns have expressed their disbelief and disgust about this incident, wondering why on earth any mother could hear such a question and then continue to go “on the tear.”A question that must be asked is who wouldn’t express disbelief and disgust before such a narrative? No one. And everyone did, as intended.The road to abduction had been paved successfully with negligence cobblestones.
What a load of utter cobblersNothing more desolate to a fisherman than to sit and see his bait being ignored by the fish swimming around and by it under the calm and clear waters but nothing is more rewarding to him than the rod straining and bending because schools of fish are fighting for it without mercy.
No, you came up with your ownWe suggest that such incriminating “evidence” was part of the narrative, necessary to sustain and reinforce the myth. Every time “neglect” is mentioned; in blogs, tweets, comments on press articles, the narrative is strengthened and embedded.Although we have chosen not to be seduced by this myth,
It's not an alibi at allwe must grudgingly admire its potency and endurance. As well as providing an unassailable alibi, it also continues to source so many welcome distractions for TM. So, choose your narrative carefully when you decide where the truth lies.
What nonsense. From the earliest, the McCanns tried to control the narrativeBut what seems to be overlooked by all is how really violent the NoN is to the parents who have lost a child.The McCann grins and smiles in their excessive assertiveness in defending their own negligence makes us forget the most evident fact of this entire case: they are (not supposed or alleged) parents who lost a child.They are 2 people to whom a nothing-worse has happened. They have suffered the worst possible tragedy a human can ever be inflicted with.And yet, as we have seen, there were some who didn’t hesitate for a minute to put one other very heavy burden, the stigma of being neglectful parents, on top of the heaviest possible burden that were on the shoulders of these parents.These people didn’t give a single thought before making these parents’ nothing-worse be much, much worse. Because they were not only neglectful but that it was that exact neglect that determined their daughter’s tragic fate.Not only have they lost their child but they were the ones responsible for that having happened. Can it get worse than that?It can, because much worse than all of the above, the worst of all, was to watch this man and this woman accept without any complaint their nothing-worse being made significantly worse..
