NICE ONE PORTUGAL!
It wasn't enough that Portugal's supposedly elite PJ failed Madeleine at every twist and turn.
It wasn't enough that the Portuguese authorities allowed ex detective Paulo Cristovao to write a book about the investigation of a Madeleine McCann, an investigation he had nothing to do with, the only link was that he knew Goncalo Amaral.
It wasn't enough that the Portuguese authorities allowed the disgraced failed ex detective Goncalo Amaral, to cash in on the child he failed and top his retirement pension up by writing books, giving paid TV and radio interviews, being paid for stories appearing on newspapers and magazines and making a TV documentary about the case.
It wasn't enough that the Portuguese press joined in the bullying and intimidation and character assassinations of Madeleine's parents.
Just when you think that Portugal could not stoop any lower an organised group have toured Praia Da Luz, torn down posters of the little girl, ripped them up and thrown them in the gutter and defiled her image by spitting in the little girl's face!
No wonder tourists are staying away from Praia da Luz and Portugal, they do not feel welcome and they fear for their children's safety.
And with good cause!
Shame On You Portugal, but I promise you this, we will not forget this in a hurry and we will see it as our duty to remind people about Madeleine, each time the holiday seasons approaches!
