If you’ve been on the moon for the past month you won’t have heard about the little girl — Madeleine McCann — who was kidnapped from a Portuguese holiday resort. Unfortunately, it’s all I’ve heard about, and while I’ve refrained from passing comment so far I can’t bear to listen to the media making martyrs out of Madeleine’s parents any longer.
The BBC have even talked about how Mrs McCann “
described how the couple had struggled to have children and had waited five years for a baby” …have they thought about how this was Mother Nature’s way of telling the obviously incompetent pair that they don’t bloody deserve children? I say this because there is not a doubt in my mind that this kidnapping was down to anything but parental neglect. Who leaves three babies in a room, on their own with no one to come running if they cry out or wake up?
Apparently the mother said: “
You just don’t expect in a million years that this could happen.” ..no, perhaps that’s why she thought it’d be a good idea to bugger off halfway across the resort without spending a penny on the available babysitting services despite the fact that they’re both employed in well-paid jobs and could more than afford them.
I hope with all my heart that Madeleine is still alive and that the parents come back to the UK to be properly brought to justice for their disgraceful lack of judgement.
