It’s said that good things come in threes or, as the other side would now say, also do bad things.
But in the Maddie case the good things for us and bad for them have come in fours this summer break.
To be accurate, during the summer of 2016 there seemed to be only three good things, the fourth only arrived just last week with the approval of the funding of Operation Grange for the second semester of the 2016/2017 fiscal year. The first semester had been approved back in April.
Since we returned from holidays we have already addressed two of them in respective posts: the association of Clement Freud with the Maddie case and the firing of Clarence Mitchell.
