Hi Cláudia,

Thanks for the new thread. It is very promising, IMO. The only doubt I have, is where defamtion fits in with the list that is given for which they deal with.

The McCanns and their foul-mouthed followers should be worried!

Nancy, as I said to Cláudia, the pain was minimal - so no bravery there! In fact I think the injection hurts more than the proceedure.

Hi, Dylan.
I heard any investigation seems to happen faster if filed through the DIAP.
With my dentist, i d'nt even feel the needle because she hs a wonder gel which numbs there area. :-)

Hola, Eme.

Sinceramente, não vejo como a reabertura do processo vá trazer alguma luz sobre o mesmo.

O corpo da miúda foi levado no carro, mas os carros ainda não falam...

Esta abertura pode obrigar os amigos dos McCann a depôr de novo?

nancy said...

Sorry, I put my post about this thread on the previous one.

I reiterate that I wish GA all the luck in the world with his efforts to reopen the case, and he is certainly going to need it!

Claudia - how beautiful your god-daughter is and how she has grown!

Talking about the gel your dentist uses before injections, I actually had that for the first time going back 25 years or so in Spain when I went to have a tooth out. I couldn't believe we didn't have the benefit of it back in the UK! Whether we do now it's mainly private patients, I have no idea, but I'm going to the dentist in July for a filling so I'll enquire.

Hi Claudia and all,

Good luck to G A. I am sure he better than anyone knows what he is doing. As I have said before he has my 100% support and my 100% respect. Imo he is M's only hope for justice.

Cláudia said...

Amen, Zodiac!

Anonymous said...

Good morning all :-)

Zodiac - I second that too.
RP claims to have 'proof' that GA has beaten his wife and threatened to kill her. That blog has gone way too far with the things they have said about [GA]. I wonder if he has read any of it? Also, has he seen that farce of a 'book'?
If so, they should be sued for defamation too.

Hi Zodiac,

I missed on the other thread that you asked me the 'Kellogs' question. It's not me, I'd never dare to get that close to a hive that's being opened up when the honey's being taken. I've heard that the bees get quite cross when you steal their honey!! I wouldn't mind looking like her though ;-)

Have a good day all,

Hello Claudia, Bby sara & all!!
About the civil action the McCans are going to put against GA, his lawyer said "...it was not GA eho s
niffed the car..". Isugest the mc family to sue the dogs, which will have a lawyer dog.
I wishe a good day to all blogers

I was reading JM blogs comments and i feel happy to see how supportive are to GA, Portuguese, Britons and other nationalities

nancy said...

Hi everyone - yes the weather changed today - back too warmer clothes!

McCann Files and Joana Morais are reporting on GA's intended defamation suit - he has said he intends bringing in witnesses from England and Ireland.

I hope nobody 'gets at' these witnesses before they get the chance to appear. Stranger things have happened in this case.

I'd hate for them to change their minds!

Cláudia said...

Hello, all.

It's great to real all the support, isn't it? Mr Amaral is very grateful to all of those people.

Hello

I cant help thinking that all the trash in the press about Portugal being a Peado haven etc etc may not have been a good move by what ever idiot decided to push it to our press to print...

Sure it makes it look bad but if you look at the UK or any other country we are probebly worse than Portugal with our Peadophile population (give me a couple of bricks I will sort the lot of them out evil scum)...

But watching my Country get trashed if I were in political power I would be very sure of one thing and that would be setting the record straight starting with everything I could say about the Parents of 3 children who could not be bothered to care for them...

I hope Amaral has many backers it is about time this game was stopped...

Oh boy am I sick and tired of the dirt road that is supposed to fight Maddie's corner, but this, surely, is the worst yet:

"Soon Leonor Cipriano will appeal her sentence and she is going to either walk free from court her conviction being overturned OR there will be a retrial."

- courtesy of her RH Poops, no less.

I think this just sums up the Pro stance perfectly: 'We condone a woman who has shagged her brother, got caught in the act by her daughter (and his neice), and both parties should be able to get away with dismembering this little girl's body, hiding, it and living happy ever after.'

They make me feel really, really sick.

Goodnight all.

I won't wish sweet dreams, as I, for one, will probably have horrible nightmares. What a nasty pinky/purple sadistic, child-hating world they live in.

nancy said...

Buenas dias everyone!

Polling day today, but I can't seem to summon up the enthusiasm either for the Europe vote or the local one. I haven't got much faith in any of them right now, but I'll probably go for the Greens if I do vote.

Reading about GA and the McCanns, I see they said that he was more concerned with a three hour lunch and drinking break than investigating! Pot, Kettle, Black!!

Can you believe the arrogance of that statement, considering they didn't even bother looking for Madeleine the night she went missing, and have done nothing more than pay other people to look for her since.

Did they knock on any doors that night? No, they let precious hours pass when they may have found her co-ordinating their stories with the tapas pals.

You could almost believe they knew she wasn't findable!

Hi, Dylan.
I bet some of the grannies from the HoF have things in common with the Leonor bitch. It happens all over the world. The most famous serial killers all got lots of fan mail in prison and even some marriage proposals.
Which just gave me an idea! Some of them could marry the Cipriano male monster. He would love them to pieces. Literally!
Hpe you slept well.

Hi, Nancy.
Here the vote will be on Sunday. And I'm looking forward to it. I always vote. people have died so I can vote and I will never give up my right.
I have to confess I have never been more interested in a foreign country's vote (expect the election of Obama, for obvious reasons). I look forward the day when GB will go. The crisis in the Government made the news here.
Well, they can talk about lunches, food and drink all they like. The facts are that Mr Amaral still has his 3 daughters. The McCanns lost one of theirs because they were eating, drinking and having fun with their friends. Not a smart argument at all...

Nancy wrote: 'Reading about GA and the McCanns, I see they said that he was more concerned with a three hour lunch and drinking break than investigating! Pot, Kettle, Black!!'

They really are hypocrites. If they had not been doing what they accuse GA of doing then they possibly would still be a family of 5 back home in Rothley. Assuming they did not feel that anywhere else wherever it may have been was safe to leave three little children unsupervised whilst they went off and had dinner and drinks with their friends or whatever they fancied doing! As for GA even if he did have 3 hour lunches with beer or wine. WTF has that got to do with them?

Imo GA is MBM only hope for justice.

Anonymous said...

Nancy,

Pot and kettle - exactly!

Claudia, Lol! I can just imagine the love letters - ew!

I've been trying to get my account up and going on the 3as again. I thought I had forgotten my password and so I set up a new email only to find that my new membership had been deleted. I emailed admin and was told I could use my old name and password. Only, when i did this, I had a message saying I was banned. I wrote back to admin to ask them why and was sent a copy of a post that was made under my name. I can't repeat what that post was as it was filthy. It was akin to what was posted on Viv's just before Supertroll set up her new site. I'm sure you'll all remember that!
I've emailed admin again to point out that it wasn't my post. I'm hoping that they can check IP addresses as they will see it wasn't me! It's quite a shock to see what lengths some will go to, and really horrible when they've nicked your own details.

Hello All

Dyl you could not make it up could you...

Leonor and her Brother murdered Joana yet the main moutpiece for Saint Kate and Gerry want the evil bitch released from jail...

If it is the view of this person that the parents are more important than the child I guess her next campaign will be to have the mother of Baby Peter released from jail...

How sick to support a killer just because it might make Amaral look bad...

Cláudia said...

Hi, Zodiac.
If a child wasn't missing, most likely dead, this would be hilarious.
They accuse (make up, really) someone of doing more or less the same thing as the wonder couple with the difference that GA still has all his children and never lost one while eating. The same, sadly, can't be said of the infamous duo.

nancy said...

Claudia -

You are quite right - people have died so that people can have the right to choose the government they want. I always vote and did so earlier today because I can imagine the reaction if we were told we couldn't vote and it was decided by other powers that be who would run the country!

However, if people want to show their dissention with the government by not voting then I guess that puts a message across too.

My granddaughter (just 18) and her first voting year, said she didn't feel like voting because of all the scandal over expenses with the politicians here at the moment, but I reminded her that many women chained themselves to the railings all over Britain in the last Century so that women could have the right to vote - so she got on her bike and went and voted! I'm proud of her!

PS. Can you translate what Pericles Pinto said please?

nancy said...

Dylan -

For someone to put their name to a filthy blog and post it on the 3A's is nothing short of disgraceful. Who the hell do they think they are and what sort of people are they!! I sincerely hope the 3A's sees through the scam!

Hello Hope -

You are exactly right about those on the unmentionable blog. To support a mother like poor Joana's just shows they don't give a fig about what happened to that child, just as long as they can get vengeance on Goncalo who, after all, has only been doing his utmost to get justice for both Joana and Madeleine. They are so full of hatred it is eating them alive!

nancy said...

Hi Zodiac -

You are right. The only one trying to get justice for Madeleine is Goncalo Amaral. Those who should be doing their utmost to find out the truth of what happened in PdeLuz, including the politicians, the media, and even the police, seem more worried about the McCann's state of health than that of Madeleine! Just when will they all get of their backsides and go all out to find out the truth of her disappearance.

3as has confirmed it was a troll who cloned me there.

I'm so annoyed as it was before I could even do a single post!

Admin's been very helpful trying to sort it out for me, but at this stage, I'm still banned!

Very good thread up by Joana Morais with a GA interview and PS and DL (over the phone) also on the show. GA says that he knows an awful lot more than what he has put in his book or said in the docu. He also places Payne very much in the picture by saying he was in the appartment at the critical time. GA also says that there is a certain blog/blog member that he will also be sueing. I think we can all guess who that might be! Hi Rosie et al :-))))

I say: Go for it Goncalo!

He also says [of the new suspects] that he expects a fresh suspect v. soon. He openly scorns them as they were already in the files and have been investigated and predicts that new suspects are the Mcs "Swan song".

It's quite long, but well worth a watch.

I'm away camping for the weekend this eve (rotten weather too!), I may be back later, but if not, have a lovely weekend all.

nancy said...

Hi everyone -

Very interesting video on McCann Files with Goncalo Amaral and Paulo Sargento. It has English sub-titles too.

Lots of comments of course, but one that made me sit up was by GA when he said that one blogger, who is nameless, will be one of the parties sued. RP must be quaking in her shoes at that revelation!

Paulo Sargento was obviously disgusted that the McCanns were including their children's names in their case against GA, and how they have been keeping the twins focused on Madeleine to an unhealthy extent for a long time. I think most of us would agree with that.

Another interesting point that GA made. Madeleine's blanket was left in the apartment and a photo was taken of it, yet on the Oprah show Kate says (and you can see her mention it on the video directly beneath the GA video) that she hoped someone was giving Madeleine her blanket etc. He is definitely of the opinion that Kate has lied and contradicted previous statements she made.

David Payne was also mentioned, although they didn't go into any detail about him, but their body language said it all!

I don't think Kate is the only one that lied though, not by a long shot!

Off for the day now - back later!

Have a nice day everyone.

Hi to friends old and new

I believe that everyone has a duty to attend the polling station. If they want to show dissent then they should spoil their ballot paper, a course that I have adopted a number of times. A large number of spoilt ballots would send a greater message that not voting at all which can be dismissed as voter apathy.

Hi everyone -

On Joana's blog, a link to a very interesting post by Textusa of likely, and unlikely, scenarios of how Madeleine disappeared.

On McCann Files lots of reports in the daily scumbag newspapers of Raymond Hewlett's admission that he saw Madeleine twice, and recognised her by her eye defect. Oh really!!


It's obvious he's looking for a nice little nest egg for his kids if he tells all. Nothing surprising there because he has nothing to lose. After all he's not going to be on this earth for much longer by the sound of it.

Let's hope he rots in hell along with all other paedophiles.

I hope everything is alright with Callum now. Children can be such a worry, and let's thank our lucky stars that the majority of parents love their kids and would do anything to protect them over and above themselves.

Dr Goncalo Amaral's Lawsuit now being mentioned in the UK press.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... rents.html

A least the UK are now being informed, via the Press, even it is only a little. I see BK has clearly stated he is not funding the Pink one. Hmm so how is paying CM from the family Company funds (funds donated by a kind public) to protect their reputation helping find MBM? Will the family Company funds (funds donated by the kind public) pay the legal fees for CM? How is that helping to find MBM? Will the family Company funds (funds donated by the kind public) pay the legal fees for the McC's? The same McC's who are now Directors of the family Company! How is that helping to find MBM?

Hi all,

Docmac, whatever happened, I am mighty pleased that Callum is recovered and back home again. Thanks for the email too, it's always good to hear that you are still around and well, even if you don't have time to post very much. :-) I don't appear to have received your text, btw, but that may be because we have been on the coast where there is no signal.

Well we had a fairly damp and cold weekend! So much for a swim in the sea! It was very chilly at night too and so I am glad to be home with my creature comforts and out of the weather!! We left a bowl of soya mince that wasn't used, next to our tent last night, and about 3 in the morning, there was an horrendous screeching noise that woke us all up. It turned out that a dozen or so hungry gulls had descended on the bowl for a snack! I have never heard such a commotion before!

So we have all had two nights of fitful sleep (waking up with our sleeping bags scrunched at the bottom of a slope, near frostbite ;-), treks to the loo in the middle of the night and being serenaded by snoring!!

Why do people go camping? Simple - so that we can come home and appreciate a nice soft bed and a loo that actually has toilet roll, and a shower that runs warmer than glacier water!!

Zodiac, glad to hear that our press has reported about Amarel's latest mission!

Niza, I'm hoping it's the author of the pinky-purple blog too :-)))

Love from a very glad to be home Dylan xxx

Cláudia said...

Hi, Dylan.
Sorry that the weather didn't help.
I have to say that I have no idea why people go camping. Not my thing at all. I'm more of a hotel, nice bathtub and spa type. The idea of insects and other kind of things around when I sleep isn't exactly appealing. But I envy other people's adventurous side.
Enjoy your very comfortable home. :-)

I voted for the party which is now in power (PS) but having in mind all that has happened and all the suspicions of political interference, I wanted to see them punished today and so did many more Portuguese voters, judging by the final results. The party now in power was expected by everybody to win this election but it seems Portuguese voters decided to punish them. :-)
Sleep well in your very comfortable, safe bed.

Good morning all!

It is still cold here. Bl**dy British summer!

Cláudia, glad you got the result that you wanted, but I'm a bit confused as to why you're glad when you voted for the other party? Maybe it's just my befuddled brain!

Hi, Dylan.
Cold, cloudy and windy here too, if that makes you feel better. :-)
I voted for the party now in power (PS) 4 years ago. But I was wishing for them to be punished in this election given all the suspicions of political interference. And that happened. Portuguese voters wanted to give our Government a serious warning and so they did.
Have a nice day!

Harrison girl, got to do better than that.
The only thing understandable in your comment were the names. Wanna try French, German, Spanish or Italian next time?

Hi, Gisele.
You really have to work harder because nothing in your comment makes sense. Googlese really is crap. Just like your little empty head. :-)
But I have four words for you:

Gisele, you really are thick. "Ediots"? WTF is that? Didn't finish 4th grade?
As much as you amuse me (and believe me, you do make me laugh!), this is the last time I'm replying to you at least while I have to worry about a family member's health. You know family, don't you? Those people you love above all else and who are more important than Tapas (even if the Tapas are really, really good!)?
Good luck for the 4th grade. :-)

Gisele, as for your last sentence, I hope you remember your words if anyone in your family is ever unfortunate enough to suffer from very serious health problems.
This is the last time I'll reply to you. The next one will be to expose you.
