Paul Luckman, “Portugal News”: McCann are guilty of leaving the children alone

“I was there (at Ocean Club) at 9.30 am, next day, and everybody was there: regular police, Policia Judiciaria, firemen, Civil Defence, all resources were there and everybody was looking for the child” - this was the description of Praia da Luz, made by Paul Luckman, editor of Portugal News, an English-language newspaper published in Algarve, during a debate in a TV program, “Sociedade Civil”, from RTP.

Paul Luckman said that “the parents are guilty of leaving their children alone” and criticized the fact that the McCann didn't used the baby-sitting service available at Ocean Club: “A baby-sitter costs 12 euros per hour...” About what happened the night Madeleine disappeared, Luckman admitted that an accident could be something “possible”, in theory. The editor of “Portugal News” said that “the McCann and his team should stop criticizing Portugal and the Portuguese police”, and they should apologize, “because it was their fault, all of this problem.”

What a sensible man Paul Luckman is. Of course whatever has befallen Madeleine is all the parents fault, whichever way one looks at it. They had a duty of care to look after their 3 children aged 3 and under. They failed.
They have since sought to blame everyone except themselves.

Paulo,

Do you know if the McCanns and their friends also searched for Madeleine?

Thank you for your blog. It's one of the few sources I feel I can trust.

If i was the McCanns, and i was innosaint, and the guy who was close to "us" the guy who helped us so much, he is a suspect in the case.

I would express myself on that, I would either say my anger on this guy if i believe he could be suspect, or i would say it cant be him or something like that.

When Murat, the helping guy, has been named suspect, I havent seen any comments on that from the McCanns. Either I missed the comment, or its illegal for them to say, (even they talk so much about other stuff), OR they know he is not involved for what ever reason that might be.

olá Paulo Reis
Consegue saber se a história do NOTW sobre o saco encontrado perto do aeroporto de faro, cheio de roupa e com adn de madeleine, com umas calças de ganga com mais de 60 manchas e com uma cortina de banho tem alguma ponta de verdade?

Thore Denmark,

The McCanns have been very odd people who make arrogant and selfish bizarre statements for parents of a child they claim to love who is now missing. However, one of the very few gracious selfless comments Gerry McCann has ever made public (imho) is one in defense of Murat.

I tried searching for it but could not find it. I know I read this but as you are probably aware a lot of things change by the hour in the "facts" of this case but perhaps Paulo knows of the comment Gerry made respectful of Murat. Or if it was another fabrication by the English press.

The comment of Gerry McCann, when asked if he knew Robert Murat:"I would not comment in this...."

Other comment I remember was when Gerry said that any person should be considered innocent until proven guilty...

Paulette said...

Thank you Paulo it was the second comment you mentioned that I was thinking of. Although, there were reports that a few of the Tapas 7 approached Murat and verbally attacked him. If true, I suppose Gerry could afford to "look" judicious for a quick moment.
