A true knee jerk reaction from the dead tree press today.
A 20 year old student goes to a ‘Poor taste’ fancy dress party – dressed in? – poor taste naturally! He happens to be a junior activist member of the Conservative Party. He correctly identifies that dressing up as the ‘missing’ Madeleine McCann is in poor taste.
He could have gone dressed as a Nazi, many do, Prince Harry amongst them. He could have gone dressed as ‘Baby P’ – someone else did; but No!, he aims for tabloid Bingo, he’s a Conservative Party member and he goes dressed as that icon of the Murdoch controlled press, Madeleine McCann. Light blue touch paper and retire.
Private party, private matter? Not when you step on the twinkly toes of the Madeleine McCann Industry!
The Madeleine McCann Industry’s spokesman, Clarrification Mitchell came roaring out of his bunker.
“It is a complete disgrace that Madeleine’s name and image should be made fun of in this way.”
This is ‘Intellectual Property’ speak, straight from the lawyers……..shades of the ‘Diana Doll’ saga which so decimated another famous ‘fund’.
The 20 year old Matt Lewis was not arrested, nor charged with any offence. Why then should the BBC 6pm news be giving such prominence to his ‘poor taste’ faux pas? He is not an elected official. Where is the public interest in this young man being identified and vilified? ? Who uncovered this story? Were the McCann lawyers trawling the internet to discover his unwise face-book entries?
The utter hypocrisy of Caroline Spelman pronouncing his behaviour as ‘totally unacceptable’ and expelling him from the party – whilst retaining her position as chairman despite admitting fiddling her expenses, is breathtaking.
The utter hypocrisy of the McCann’s pronouncing that the behaviour of a 20 year old student going to a ‘poor taste’ party is ‘totally unacceptable’ whilst retaining their other two children – despite admitting their neglect of all their children, is breathtaking.
The utter hypocrisy of the Murdoch controlled press pronouncing young Matt’s behaviour as ‘totally unacceptable’ whilst retaining their support for Gordon Brown as he decimates the UK economy is breathtaking.
Matt Lewis has unwittingly joined a select band – Tony Bennett at http://madeleinefoundation.org/ and http://the3arguidos.net – who are bringing this matter back into the heart of politics. Had Gordon Brown not unwisely interfered in this matter, then the Portuguese Police may have been able to resolve the issue.
The Madeleine McCann case will haunt British society until her parents are brought to trial, for neglect if nothing more.
Until then we will continue to have more pressing world matters drowned out by the McCannical demands for more apologies.
