elvis alive?
I think these and make your own minds up.

Mr Grub: Did you try to hijack a local event?
I am somewhat puzzled about a few recent statements made by you and your family, so I am offering you the opportunity to confirm, clarify or deny these statements.

The latest entry on your blog includes the following statement written either by yourself, or a representative of your family and/or fund raising/awareness campaign.

"A small event took place in Porto, in the north of Portugal, today to remember missing children. It was at a large schools end of year musical and the children and staff released balloons. It is good that local communities are staging events like this and we thank them for remembering Madeleine."

Would I be correct in thinking this is not the complete story? It's not that I don't believe you and I would never call you a liar. Let me try and explain my reluctance to take the above entry at face value?

Ah yes.

You don't exactly have a demonstrated and proven track record in presenting information in a manner that stands up to close scrutiny, is not open to interpretation, is not later contradicted either by yourself, family or other parties directly or indirectly involved with this issue, can be verified by independent sources or be considered totally reliable.

Yep, that's it.

I understand the event referred to was an end of term event held on the eighth of this month, at a nursery school called Pinga Amor in Gondomar Social Centre (Vila Nova de Gaia) - approximately 10 minutes drive from Praia da Luz.

Organised by the mother of a boy who disappeared nine years ago, the event featured the release of 9 white balloons.

You and Kate were invited but did not attend. Instead, you told organisers to release 60 green and 2 yellow balloons, for Madeleine.

If this report is true - it means you and your family wanted to hijack a simple and dignified event meant to help the mother of a little local lad who vanished nine years ago, as a promotional tool for your own aims.

Would you like to confirm or deny this report?

Despite what your Aunt Phil appears to think, this blog is not moderated and there is no reason why you can not respond or accept an earlier invitation to be interviewed on this blog.

Good ole Phil, who gives every impression of being a left over cast member from, "Shameless" doesn't appear to like me for some reason. Buggered if I know why - but there ya go - you can't please all the people all the time, in much the same way you can't fool all of the people all of the time, (though there are some who try their hardest, as you well know).

Quote from Phil:

"I cant stand this man, I think he's a show off with a big mouth and and even bigger ego, he's also a coward as far as I can see, everything he wrtes is covered by "alledgedly" or "I assume" it's all suposition and rumour, as I have said before, anyone who needs to use a mixture of derision, ridicule & mockery of someone who cant even respond to his comments has lost whatever point he was trying to make."

Derision, ridicule & mockery - Gawd that sounds erotic. Just out of interest, is there anyone in your educated family of eminent university graduates, who can spell? Reading your family's postings is like reading something from Fenn Street School's, Class 4C, Creative Writing Class. Hey - is that you Sharon!

There are quite a few things in that statement that can be torn apart, but I don't like to have all the fun myself, so I will leave it to others.

I must send Phil the, "For Immediate Release" alerts I receive from The New South Wales Police Media Unit. Because of my line of work, I receive the same releases as every newspaper, radio and TV station in New South Wales. Every alert is littered with "alleged" or "allegedly" because we are trained to far higher standards of professional communication skills than Phil appears accustomed to.

Maybe she should listen to Attorney General Phil Ruddock. Granted, if you were stuck in a lift with only Philip for company, you would climb out and cut the damn cable to end your suffering, but every sentence is locked tighter than Fort Knox.

Phil gives the impression that you can not respond to my comments. Why not?

All you have to do is click the "Post Comment" option and wallah, wallah, cats meat - you have the right of reply. I do not delete comments except in your interests. I do not allow direct allegations for example. So unless you directly accuse yourself or any other party of any offence, you are most welcome to exercise right of reply.

Or perhaps the reason you can not respond is because you have been advised not to.

Scaredy cat.

Please note: This post has been amended to remove an error in the original post. The original post incorrectly stated that "Pinga Amor in Gondomar Social Centre (Vila Nova de Gaia) is approximately 10 minutes drive from Praia da Luz." In fact it is several hours away. See also "Correction"

The Grubs: No stone unturned - no airport departed
According to a BBC article dated May 22, you stated your intention to, "travel wherever is necessary" in your search to find Madeleine. That is very commendable Gerry.

Just out of curiosity, have you had much luck finding Madeleine on the road to and from the airport? You know - the place you use to pick up and drop off friends - but others use to actually go somewhere. Malta for example.

Since you completed your grand tour of Europe, the only times you have used it for the purpose it was intended, were whirlwind visits to the UK. Business completed, you then shot through like a Bondi tram shouting, "A dingos got my wallet".

It now seems you are determined to remain in Portugal which is rather convenient if you don't have any other choice.

I notice there are a whole range of events being organised to raise money for the campaign, including a balloon release in Beirut, Lebanon on Saturday July 14. II am sure the Lebanese will be thrilled with that and will make it their number one priority. Will you and Kate be attending? Or will others do the work for you?

I realise you and Kate are grieving and that your public grief grows as donations and interest dwindle - and you may find these events too traumatic for you to attend.

Maybe that is why you couldn't keep your hands off 'Er Indoors, knockers when photographed outside a church. Of course, you could just be a tacky little bastard.

Have you ever read any of my articles on Lebanon? Perhaps the one entitled Suffer Little Children: Lebanese children play to tackle war trauma?

I thought you might have read it considering you have acquired a passionate interest in other people's children ever since the fund raising campaign was launched.

The United Nations estimates that at the end last years conflict on 14 August, a third of the 1,189 Lebanese casualties and up to 45 percent of the million displaced were children.

AlAlmost half a million children homeless. Almost 400 dead.

Perhaps the homeless children can pass the time away releasing your pretty little balloons to raise money for a campaign intended to assist two wealthy, property owning parents who left their children unattended while they got pissed every night at a Tapas bar.

May I ask you another question?May I ask you another question?

You have a newly appointed campaign manager, you recently collected a friend from the airport who runs the campaign in Amsterdam, and you have media advisers.

What exactly do you do?

I don't mean to be funny, but what's the point of buying a dog then barking yourself? After all these people are professionals. They are used to organising campaigns, PR exercises and rallying support.

You are not.I realise they have to float whiz bang, blue sky ideas by you for approval - but apart from being a mouthpiece now and then - what other role do you play?

Do you attend any of the fund raising events others have worked hard to organise on your behalf? I can't recall too many except for the high profile photo opportunities.

Don't you think a personal appearance by you and/or Kate would put more bums on seats which in turn would lead to more hands in pockets? Of course I realise that a "sponsored toddle in Ipswich on July 17" is not quite the same as meeting the Pope, but I didn't see him put his hand in his pocket to help the fund or bake any cakes. Maybe the Vatican could raffle a painting in order to help their newly aquired poster childrenlike the idea of the sponsored toddle. I bet all the proud mums will be there watching over the little mites and hoping they wont fall over or get hurt. Mums and dads tend to worry about toddlers when they are not close at hand.

Even if they aren't perfectSaturday, July 07, 2007
Another quickie before bed
Just a quick update on the response to posts regarding the McCanns. I have now received exactly 750 responses and emails since June 22.

Considering this is a dime-a-dozen blog in terms of search engine ranking, it shows just how strong the feeling is out there

For three days I was able to access the "Post comment" box to thank those who have taken the time to respond, but without any settings being altered - the bloody thing is down again today!

Please don't think your comment is not appreciated - it is!A source close to Madeleine’s parents, Kate and Gerry, said last night: “It’s true, there haven’t been any phone calls at all from David Miliband, which has been a surprise to be honest. Margaret Beckett went out of her way to get in touch, even breaking off from important talks in Washington, to telephone Kate and Gerry and let them know she could count on her help."

Nice to know that Anglo-American relations were put on hold. What did she say to Kate, "Hang on a tic luv"...then call out to fellow delegates, "Don't start the war without me"?

"Even Gordon Brown has Gerry’s mobile number"

Good. He can give it to Social Services. I've got McCann's number too. So have a lot of people.

“If I were Kate and Gerry, I would have expected something but there hasn’t been anything.”She is right. If I were Kate and Gerry I would have expected something. However if I were Bob and Gladys living on the Jasmine Allen Estate, I would have expected social services banging on my door.

"Their only focus is on doing everything they possibly can to get Madeleine back.”

As opposed to doing everything they possibly could to lose Madeleine in the first place.Recently a Portuguese newspaper published an article describing the events surrounding May 03, the night of Madeleine's alleged disappearance. I use the word "allege," not to cast doubt upon what is said to have happened, but because it is what any professional media person would do in such circumstances.

This is a concept you seem to have conveniently forgotten as you throw around words such as "snatched" "kidnapped" and "abducted" as easily as you threw away your professionalism and obligation to those who help pay your wages.

You can not fail to be aware of the article, yet I have seen no priority given to it in any mainstream media. It has been swept under the carpet in a ridiculously naive belief that by doing so, no one will know it exists.In the past you have appealed to members of the public who know parties involved in a news story, to come forward with information. "Tell us what they are like and we will show you the money". This has not happened in the case of the McCanns.

Surely you can not be ignorant of the depth of feeling - not only in the new media, but in pubs, clubs, offices and workplaces up and down the land.

How can you ignore the countless backtracking and changing of stories of those directly involved in this tragedy? The British media has long had a world-wide reputation as being nothing more than gutter press. - the slightest hint of scandal and you will sniff it out and bleed it until it is dry. Don't let facts get in the way of a good story.

But not in this case.Team McCann asks the cardboard heroes of the British media, "have you any wool?" and with one voice you reply, "Yes sir, no sir, three bags full sir" then you meekly allow them to pull it over your eyes.

Let's get down to the nitty gritty.

* Is there any suspicion that this is another Profumo affair?
* Why has Gordon Brown's involvement been largely played down?
* Has it escaped your notice that all this was happening as Portugal prepared to take over the helm of the EU?
* Has there been a directive given to keep quiet?
* If so, who issued the directive and why? Was it your editors? Your organisation's owners? Or has it come from an even higher authority?
* Why has there been no widespread coverage of the Portuguese article in the British media?* Why are you ignoring an article that the British public have a right to have easily available access to?
* Why have you not enquired about reports of McCann family business interests overseas including property interests?
* Why are you allowing the public to continue donating to the infamous fund, without John and Jane Doe having access to information that may help them decide if the cause is genuine or worthy?
* Have you investigated rumours relating to "Maddy's Law"?

Do you believe the public are gullible? Do you really think that they believe that almost every reporter in the UK, suddenly decided all at the same time, that these questions are not worth perusing?

Has the word gone out to give the McCanns every possible assistance?

Why are two parents who constantly neglected their children allowed to go unquestioned and largely un-censured?Why have they been given access to high profile personalities and high profile assistance, previously denied to others in worse situiations than the McCanns?

Why am I asking these questions and not you?

The truth is out there? What price the truth ladies and gentlemen of the press? - what price the truth?Gerry, I have to compliment you. I do like the latest post on your blog. Your new style of writing is quite commendable. I hardly recognised it in fact. Well done old chap.

I am also pleased that you state, "We also want to work closely with the media here in Portugal"

May I ask a question?

Would telling Sol journalists, "What do you think you are doing? Do you think you’re better than the Portuguese police? I’m going to forward your contact to PJ and you will have to explain yourselves" be one of the core skills involved in forming a friendly working relationship?

Now why doesn't it surprise me that so soon after the mass Internet distribution of the Sol article, "Pact of Silence" you state you wish to form an entente cordiale with the local media.

Perhaps in similar fashion to Paul, you have been converted on the road to the airport

Is Mike Hitchin right?
Extra support for my heartbroken wife please?
some of you guys of yahoo may already know that my wife and I lost our baby son on the 7th march. Its 5wks today since our little boy became an angel and we have been hoping to release 1000 blue balloons to mark his memory once we have 1000 candles lit on his memorial site

A good few guys from here have showed much kindness and helped out already and it was most appreciated. I would be grateful if any one else would kindly support us in reaching the target so today we could release the balloons. My wife is finding it really hard to cope right now and this would mean the world to her. Thanks in advance

Help in marking our baby boys memorys?

While I was watching golf tournament last weekend, my wife and I got into a conversation about life and death, and the need for living wills.

During the course of the conversation I told her that I never wanted to exist in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and taking fluids from a bottle.

She got up, unplugged the TV, and threw out all my beer.

Man, sometimes it's tough being married to a smartass.

A married couple are driving along a highway doing 60mph, the wife behind the wheel.

Her husband suddenly looks over at her and says, "Honey, I know we've been married for 20 years, but I want a divorce."

The wife says nothing, but slowly increases speed to 70 mph.

He then says, "I don't want you to try to talk me out of it, because I've been having an affair with your best friend, and she's a better lover than you are."

Again the wife stays quiet, but speeds up as her anger increases.

"I want the house," he insists, pressing his luck.

Again the wife speeds up to eighty mph.

He says, "I want the car, too," but she just drives faster and faster.

By now she's up to ninety mph. "All right," he says, "I want the bank accounts, and all the credit cards, too."

The wife slowly starts to veer toward a bridge.

This makes him a bit nervous, so he says, "Isn't there anything you want?"

The wife says, "No, I've got everything I need."

"Oh, really," he says, "So what have you got?"

Right before they slam into the wall at a 100 mph, the wife smiles and says,...

"The airbag."

A guy came into a bar one day and said to the barman "Give me six double vodkas."

The barman says "Wow! you must have had one hell of a day."

"Yes, I've just found out my older brother is gay."

The next day the same guy came into the bar and placed the same order for drinks.

When the bartender asked what the problem was today the answer came back, "I've just found out that my younger brother is gay too!"

On the third day the guy came into the bar and ordered another six double vodkas.

The bartender said "Darn! Doesn't anybody in your family like women?"

"Yeah, my wife..."
A man and a woman are laying in bed, kissing, and it starts getting heavy and she stops him. She says "I don't feel like having sex. I just want to hold you for a while." He says, "WHAT!?" and she says, "Why can't you just love me for the woman I am and not for what I do for you in bed?"

The next day they are shopping, and the woman is picking out a TON of expensive outfits. She tries them all on, and picks out the ones that she likes the most. He says "Why don't you get all of them?" Excited, the woman takes the articles of clothing and continues shopping. She picks out a couple of pairs of shoes, and he tells her to take them all. The woman is VERY excited now. She see's a bracelet, and the price reads $200.00. She looks at him, and she tells her to take it.

As she is reaching the register, the man, almost exploding with anticipation, says, "I don't feel like buying all of this stuff. I just wanted you to HOLD them for a while." The woman looks at him angrily, and the man says, "Why can't you just love me for the man I am and not for the amount of money I spend on you in stores?"

...He slept on the couch that night.
Jim and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while they
walking past the hospital swimming pool, Jim suddenly jumped into the deep
He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.

Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled Jim

When the head nurse director became aware of Edna's heroic act,she
ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered her to
mentally stable.

When she went to tell Edna the news, she said, "Edna, I have good news and
bad news. The good news is you're being discharged. Because you were able to

rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of another
patient, I have concluded that your act displays a sound mind on your part.

"The bad news is that Jim, the patient you saved, hanged himself in the
with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry,but he's

Edna replied, "He didn't hang himself. I put him there to dry. How soon can
I go home?"


Harvey and Gladys are getting ready for bed. Gladys is standing in

front of her full-length mirror, taking a long, hard look at herself.

"You know, Harvey ," she comments. "I stare into this mirror and I

see an ancient creature. My face is all wrinkled, my boobs sag so much

that they dangle to my waist, my arms and legs are as flabby as popped

balloons, and my butt looks like a sad, deflated version of the Hindenburg!"

She turns to face her husband and says, "Dear, please tell me just

one positive thing about my body so I can feel better about myself."

Harvey studies Gladys critically for a moment and then says in a

soft, thoughtful voice, "Well... there's nothing wrong with your


4 High School buddies go to a bar after a reunion. As the night goes on.. the subject turns to their sons. Just then, one buddy gets up to go to the lavatory.

The first buddy gloats: "My son is my pride and joy. Straight out of college, he invested in a local mining firm. Wouldn't you know it.. they struck diamonds, and now he's a multi-millionaire! He's doing so well, he gave a full set of diamonds to a good friend." All the buddies cheered and had a toast to that bit of good news.

The second buddy boasts: "Junior went to a good engineering college. He met some folks from the company he trained with.. worked his way up, and now, he owns a good portion of the business. In fact, he's so well off, he gave his sweetheart a private jet!" Again, the glasses clinked together.

The third buddy prouldly states: "My boy sure made me proud. After changing from art school to puruse construction, he made it as a designer of luxury homes. He now lives in his own mansion, and gets home orders from some of the richest peole in the state! He's very giving too.. he built a mansion for his best friend!" Once more, the buddies lited.

Just then, the fourth buddy came back from the baffroom. He asked: "You guys look happy.. what did I miss?"

"We were talking about our sons. By the way, how's Jeff doing?"

4th buddy says: "Well, my son Jeff just came out of the closet last Summer. Turns out he's gay, and dances at a high-class gay club."

"Oh no." said one buddy.
"What a disappointment." said another.

"Oh not at all. He's my son, and I love him. In fact, his dancing must be real good... cus for Christmas he got a set of diamonds, a private jet, and a new mansion from his 3 boyfriends."


A fellow was reading the paper one day lamenting the fact that his doctor has ordered him to lose 75 pounds. Next thing he sees is an advertisement for a guaranteed weight loss program. "Guaranteed like heck," he thinks to himself. "But lets see what they think they can do." He calls them on the phone and subscribes to the 3 day, 10 LB weight loss program.

The next day there comes a knock at his door, and when he answers, there stands before him a voluptuous, athletic 19 year old babe dressed in nothing but a pair of Nikes and a sign hanging around her neck. She introduces herself as a representative of the weight loss company. The sign reads, "If you can catch me, you can have me." Without a second thought he takes off after her. A few miles later, huffing and puffing, he finally catches her and has his way with her. After they are through he kisses the girl one last time and thinks to himself with a nod, "I like the way this company does business." For the next two days, the same girl shows up and the same thing happens each time. On the fourth day, he weigh himself and, sure enough, he has lost 10 pounds.

Deciding that he likes his somewhat more slender physique, not to mention the method of treatment, he calls the company back and subscribes to their 5 day, 20 LB weight loss program. He thinks that losing 20 pounds in only 5 days seems like a lot, but he is intrigued by what their workout schedule might be like this time.

As expected, the next day there comes a knock at his door. When he answers it there stands a 22 year old knockout dressed in nothing but a pair of Reeboks and a sign hanging around her neck. She is simply stunning, the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. She introduces herself as a representative of the weight loss company. The sign reads, "If you can catch me, you can have me." He's out the door like a shot. This gal is in excellent shape and it takes a while to catch her. But when he does, it is worth every cramp and wheeze. She is wonderful, the best he has ever had. He is really looking forward to the next four days... For the next four days, the same girl shows up and the same thing happens each time, much to his delight. On the sixth day, he weighs himself and, unbelievably, he has lost another 20 pounds.

I love this company, he thinks to himself, "I never knew losing weight could be so easy and so much fun." Feeling much better about himself, he decides to go for broke and subscribe to the company's 7 day, 50 pound weight loss program. "Are you sure, sir?" Asks the representative on the phone. "This is our most vigorous program." "Absolutely," says he, "I love your program. Haven't felt this good in years!"

The next day there comes a knock at his door and he enthusiastically answers it. There stands before him a 200 pound perfect specimen of a man dressed in nothing but racing spikes and a sign around his neck. He introduces himself as a representative of the weight loss company. The sign reads, "If I can catch you, I can have you."
