What this little girl didn't know, was that very soon she would become the focus of a McCann PR exercise, a PR machine that would become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.
USE THE FORCE
The force of social media. And use it they did.
Let's cast our mind back, back to when this ridiculous rumour grew legs, ran stark naked through your facebook news feeds and said, "Doubt the facts, mum and dad are innocent, here I am, alive and kicking".
May 14th 2014, two weeks before New Scotland Yard are about to begin digging holes in Praia de Luz. The McCanns worst nightmare. Here we have a couple so hell bent on promoting the fact that Madeleine is alive, thus removing themselves from blame, that they will do anything to avoid the swinging rope of human logic.
Let's look at the scenario.
Operation Grange are going to start digging on waste ground a few minutes walk from the apartment the McCanns were staying in at the Ocean Club in PDL
As you can see from the map below, the route to the wasteland ties in with the Smith sighting. Martin Smith and his family witnessed a man carrying a small child, Smith was up to 80% sure this man was Gerry McCann, and convinced the little girl was Madeleine.
1, The Ocean Club.
2. The Smith sighting.
3. The wasteland.
To anyone who has read the evidence, these digs implicate Gerry McCann in the disposal of Madeleine's body.
It doesn't matter that this girl, and her family have a life, not to team McCann, this young girl is collateral. Kate and Gerry fodder.
Despite hundreds of people sending the picture in to the Official Find Madeleine page, it took Kate and Gerry 4 days to admit that the girl in the photograph wasn't Madeleine, by then though, the damage was done. Several newspapers had run with the story, all of a sudden Madeleine, and Madeleine was alive again. You can bet your bottom dollar the McCanns were contacted for a comment, so why didn't Kate and Gerry rule her out?
A more cynical person would say
This is McSpin.
Now, 12 months on, and this photograph has resurfaced again. Nice timing for the McCanns, with thousands of people wanting to read Goncalo Amaral's book, http://truthofthelie.com/ and all of those people reading facts, facts that implicate Kate and Gerry in covering up the death of Madeleine. People are yet again being given false hope that Madeleine is alive, and OFM are not correcting them.
This little girl is being used as a pawn in Kate and Gerry's long running con. Proving that there are no depths the odious couple will stoop to in their disgraceful attempts to fool people.
