I meet Commissioner Jules Maigret in a restaurant near the Place des Vosges.

He wants to give me his thoughts on the strange case of Madeleine McCann.

Clarence Mitchell.

"My first thought," says Maigret, "is why did Mr Clarence Mitchell leave his important job with the government to become the McCann's full time Public Relations man.

"He would not have done this simply to help a relatively unknown doctor and his wife.

"Clarence Mitchell was involved in the case of Fred and Rosemary West.

"The Wests were involved in some kind of pedophile ring involving young girls.

"Clarence Mitchell was involved in the case of the young girls Jessica Chapman and Holly Wells, a case which may be linked to a pedophile ring.

"Clarence Mitchell was involved in the case of Jill Dando, which some people believe is linked to a powerful pedophile ring.

2008 - Email from Leicestershire police. 

"The police believe that a pedophile ring is involved in the case of Madeleine McCann.

"These powerful pedophile rings are international. 

"Children from children's care homes in Leicestershire may be taken to Holland. 

"Children from Portugal may be taken to Belgium."

Maigret pauses to order another beer.

"Nanny Charlotte Pennington looked after children at the Mark Warner holiday complex in Praia da Luz.

"She says that Kate McCann screamed 'They've taken her, they've taken her!'

"Who are 'they'?

"The McCanns are from Leicestershire, which is famous for pedophile rings.

"And they were holidaying in Portugal, which is famous for pedophile rings.

"Doctors may know a little bit more about what goes on than the average member of the public."

Maigret pauses to enjoy more of his fricandeau of veal with sorrel.

"Imagine," continues Maigret, "that the McCanns are acquainted with certain respectable people who have shown an interest in Madeleine."

"Imagine that the McCanns have been too trusting of these people.

"It happens.

"When I look at Gerry McCann's face I see a man who looks as if he has been cheated and who knows that powerful people are involved."

Philip Edmonds 

"Lots of important people are linked to Praia da Luz and its neighbourhood.

"Sir Cliff Richard, Sir Clement Freud, Robert Murat, Hunter Davies, Paul McCartney, Philip Edmonds...

Praia da Luz.

"Philip Edmonds was at Praia da Luz in Portugal when Madeleine McCann disappeared. 

"Philip Edmonds is the nephew of Margaret Hodge. 

"Margaret Hodge is the UK politician who has been accused of covering-up the child abuse scandal in the London borough of Islington."

Maigret tucks into his crêpes Suzettes.

"Leicestershire is where the McCanns come from," continues Maigret.

"Frank Beck was implicated in the abuse of boys in Leicestershire care homes which he ran.

"Frank Beck said he was imprisoned because he had exposed abuse by a certain very important politician.

"Frank Beck died in mysterious circumstances.

"Lord Greville Janner has been a friend of Michael Jackson and of Yuri Geller.

"On 20 December 2013, Lord Greville Janner's home was searched by the UK police as part of child sex investigations.

"Officers from Leicestershire Police spent two days searching Lord Greville Janner's apartment in London

"Janner is linked to the late Frank Beck.

"There was a Police Complaints Authority investigation into why so many of the complaints made to police by children had been ignored.

Ratcliffe Road Children's Home - Leicester, England

"Reportedly, at his trial, Beck stated that: 'One child has been buggered and abused for two solid years by Greville Janner'.

"Janner was alleged to have been acquainted with a young boy called Paul Winston.

"Paul Winston was able to describe Janner's home, the hotel rooms they had shared, and Janner's habits and person in detail.

"Frank Beck discovered what had been going on after Winston was put into his care.

"Beck 'immediately informed his bosses at Leicester Social Services'.

"Janner was never brought to court, nor called upon to testify.

"Frank Beck died suddenly, just before his appeal was due to begin.

"Beck had two main solicitors.

"One was killed in a road accident, and the other 'has been subjected to police harassment'.

Brad Lane and Reggie Kray

"A young boy called Brad lane was allowed to visit the 'pedophile' gangster Reggie Kray, inside Gartree prison, in Leicester.

"Brad lane died young."

Maigret lights his pipe and then continues.

"I can tell you who kidnapped Madeleine McCann.

"The same people who organised the kidnapping of Julie Lejeune.

"The same people who organised the kidnapping of Johnny Gosch.

"In 1996, computer discs were found at the home of Marc Dutroux.

"These discs revealed an international pedophile ring involving Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, the U.S., Great Britain, Japan and the United Nations and its agencies.

"Look at Gerry McCann's face.

"He thought he could appeal to powerful people like Sir Richard Branson and Gordon Brown and the Pope.

"But there are more powerful people than any of those."


  1. Provocative insights. Intuition is Maigret's primary tool in approaching investigations, and he is rarely wrong.

    1. David has written 'Le Docteur Maigret'.

  2. It's obviously not the McCanns themselves who justify the unprecedented diplomatic, intelligence, political + media/charity involvement in this cover-up. Instead, you have to look at their connections, however fleeting and unintentional they may be.

    Indeed, an unnamed lawyer for one of the Tapas 7 summed it up best in a subsequently whooshed interview with the Evening Standard in 2007:

    “It’s not that he is scared of the McCanns, but the economic and political lobby surrounding the couple is truly frightening to anybody.”

    The power of this "lobby" was amply demonstrated by Kate McCann's unguarded comment when told that she was going to be brought back for questioning in September 2007:

    "the Portuguese police is being pressured by the Government to end the investigation".

    If you want to know more about this "lobby", you need to take a closer look at the Ocean Club owners, the well-connected Symingtons (Pottinger Bell were drafted in to protect the reputation of the Ocean Club, not the McCanns), the number of doctors staying at the OC (in particular those with Porton Down connections) and the strange behaviour of Dr. David Payne (not just the finger-sucking and nipple-circling lewdness of the Gaspar Statements, but also his recognition by social worker Yvonne Martin and his efforts to keep her away from him and the McCanns).

    It was also David Payne's who chose the Ocean Club as the destination for the group holiday. Sooner or later, people are going to start asking why he chose the Ocean Club and what exactly was going on in this quiet British enclave on the Algarve.

  3. Hullo Aang,

    Did you see this GCHQ disinfo guide? Very interesting. I would describe it as a primer that functions as an all-purpose tool for sites-yet-to-be-determined, ie. disinfo qua disinfo, rather than a topic-specific thing listing established strawmen, weakpoints, buzz phrases etc. Which is a shame since it's the latter I'd really like to see.

    The last couple of frames featured seem to take the topic a step further and in doing so defy comprehension at a quick glance. Clearly more study needed but keep your eye out for the phrase 'magic techniques and experiment'. Um... okay, didn't expect that. It's almost enough to make to make you think Aleister Crowley still treads the halls of GCHQ. Or his students at least.

    Then again this is Glenn Greenwald fronting for the Snowden archives. Perhaps it's what they want us to know about? Either way one can't fail to be impressed by Greenwald. He didn't so much as bat an eyelid at the thought of GCHQ training its staff in the use of magic. Nerves of steel obviously. Or a thousand yard stare? Something like that.

    Still, interesting no?

    best etc. etc.

  4. "But there are more powerful people than any of those."

    So name names. Or is Maigret covering for them?
