Pissing in the Wind

Posted in Other Stuff by 200

A solicitor from Essex has tried to take out a private prosecution against the parents of Madeleine McCann for child neglect.

A quote from the Telegraph website says, "Anthony Bennett, 60, faxed an application for a summons of Gerry and Kate McCann to Loughborough magistrates’ court in their home county of Leicestershire.

He was spurred to act by a "lack of action" by authorities in Leicestershire, and comments made by Clarence Mitchell, the McCanns’ spokesman, that their actions were typical of many British families on holiday."

I know I’ve blogged on this subject before but I really hope someone has the bottle to grasp the nettle and sort this one out. I have my doubts that this particular chap will succeed and I think he will be in for some not inconsiderable criticism but I have to agree with him. If Mr & Mrs McCann were Wayne & Waynetta Chav they’d have been done by now.
