The Grey Area


This, my friends, I deem to be the one of most important posts that I’ll ever write on the Maddie Affair subject.

It will be longer than usual, so be warned upfront.

It’s been a very a long road to come to this point, but before you get your hopes too high, I’m not going to tell you who did it, or even about what happened that night, May 3rd 2007. Although I do hope that I'll shed just a little more light on it.

The long road I speak of is the one we’ve walked together and that only now, may we speak of these things and I know you’ll understand me.

What I’m going to try to do today is to clarify where on the board do all the various players stand in this “game”.

Once you understand that, you’ll understand the reason for different attitudes and postures, and perhaps understand why some have had, apparently, a change of heart, and why others remain, although exposed of not being who they pretend to be, as if it wasn't their cover that was blown.

I do apologise, but I can’t avoid the use of the best prop at my disposal, which is the colour of the “hat” that each one of us wears, to explain what I’m trying to explain.

So what I’m going to try to do is explain what is effectively the colour of the hat each one of us, figuratively speaking, does wear.

I’ve only mentioned two possible colours, Black or White. And I won’t mention any other, because they’re the only ones that are possible. It's either Black or it's White.

Those openly Black Hatted are easily identifiable as they cling on to their pathetic arguments to deny what is evidently undeniable.

Let’s not waste any more time with them, and let’s put them aside right away as the disruptive liars we expect them to be. We just have to understand why they are the way they are, and hopefully at the end of this post you’ll be a little wiser for it.

Today, let’s talk only about White Hats. Or better still, about White Hats vs “White Hats”.

As I’ve said many times, there are many White Hats around that aren’t as immaculate as they appear to be.

Quantifying whiteness is like quantifying beauty, as its determination resides only in the eye of the beholder.

Before you call me crazy, you wouldn’t be the first and I’ll talk about that later, please reread the sentence and realize it does depends only on YOU to decide which colour YOU want to see a certain hat to be, which doesn’t at all mean that is the colour it really is.

One is unable to lie to oneself. We may try hard to convince ourselves that what we did, or didn’t do, had a justification but deep down, we know if we were right or wrong.

Each one of us knows really what's the colour of the hat one wears, so what I did want to say above, to be in accordance with the post’s intent, is that it depends on YOUR talent and perseverance to make OTHERS see YOUR hat the colour YOU want them to see it, irrelevant of the colour it really is.


Before I tell what I think separates us, let me first say what I think both White Hats (WH) and “White Hats”(“WH”) agree on.

We obviously agree that Maddie is dead, something that has already been discussed and agreed on time and time again.

At Textusa, we don’t like to discuss things that have already been discussed. Our words may be too direct, too upfront or too harsh, but we do try for them to be always about something new. Our writing style may not be the fanciest, but we prefer to remain such than fancifully write about what already has been written.

This where Textusa has made the difference and will continue to do so.

So on what do we, WH and “WH” alike, agree upon?

We agree that at the time of the events there were two major “blocks”, which I’ll call the first Block A (T9), and the second Block B (Help).

In Block A, we have the T9, the known group of 4 couples and their respective children, plus the mother-in-law of one of them.

Also included in Block A, are the apartments that these 4 couples rented for that week at the Mark Warner’s Ocean Club.

Why include the apartments in this block? Because they do interact with the various T9, as, for example, we’re all in agreement that when we say that the apartment next to the McCann’s is the Oldfield’s one, and because we all agree that it was in one of these, more specifically in Apartment 5A, that Maddie died.

As to the reasons and time of her death, there may be some disagreements, or at least, there isn't a wide consensus, so I’ll abstain from saying anything about it as we only want to speak on what we agree on.

Block B, is called “Help” because we all agree that the T9 got external help.

And we agree that it wasn’t just any kind of help.

The help they got, and that we all agree on, came from all referred inside Block B, both from the UK and Portugal. Obviously the list is not completely detailed.

Block B helped create and maintain as real the ABDUCTION theory to this day.

And it helped hide then and later dispose of Maddie’s body, it helped hinder the investigation sufficiently enough, and basically helped stall the whole thing into an incomprehensible something which is what it is today and which nobody now knows what it exactly is nor how to get out or, as SY now so well comprehends, even if it is possible to get out.

Lastly, very important that this be said, is that we all agree that Maddie’s death is completely isolated within Block A's boundaries.

No one else, besides the T9 adults, should be accountable for this child’s death, for whatever reason and in whatever manner it happened.

To clarify, all those outside Block A, such as all those in Block B and all those in the “grey area”, are NOT responsible in any way for Maddie’s death.

And that’s it; I think that’s all we all agree on.


Both in the title and in the figure, there’s a “grey area” between the two blocks which I haven’t called anything. But as you might imagine by now, is the whole crux of the post.

And I haven’t called it anything because that’s exactly where the WHs and “WH”s disagree.

Succinctly, all the disagreement resides exactly on how each one of the parties, the WH and the “WH”, want you to think what that “grey area” does represent and how it interacted, or not, and interacts, or not, with Blocks A and B.

Be aware that each of referred parties may want to make you believe what they want to believe for one of two reasons, either because they truly believe in their message, and wish to enlighten you, or because it just serves their purposes and that means that their objective is to deceive you.

So, depending on what one wants others to believe was, and is, the interaction between Blocks A and B, can one characterize the “grey area” and give it some sort of identification.


The Direct Link (DL) followers believe there was a DIRECT and NEAT link between the blocks, as shown:

The DL thesis defends that within the T9 there was someone with very good connections with UK's highest authorities.

The T9's connections were, and are, so strong and so relevant that they were able to "convince" the UK highest authorities to come in T9’s immediate rescue, and continue the intensity and commitment of help for the following days, months and years, right up to this day and foreseeable future.

That’s one huge amount of power and of influence any which you look at it, for someone in the T9 to have had, and have: to make UK’s powerful and influential move decisively in their favour to cover-up a child's death.

And the UK being, within the international community, a much more powerful nation than is Portugal, then all this power and this influence were, and continue to be, extendable to Portugal.

If one can make UK’s powerful and influential move decisively in one's favour, and if UK’s powerful and influential can, as they can, make Portugal’s powerful and influential also move in any way they’re “asked” to, then one can, indirectly but effectively, make Portugal’s powerful and influential move in a any way one wishes them to too!

Not many can boast about having such a stronghold on two Sovereign Nations, I can assure you. But, at least apparently, a person, within a group of upper-middle class doctors, could.

But let’s suppose that yes, that there’s someone in the T9 with such power and influence. It still remains a mystery from where does all this power and this influence come from (or even if it exists), as well as what connections exactly do they indeed entail.

This issue has been, basically, one of the most discussed about on the internet among the various "Maddie" sites, and probably will continue to be so. Firstly, because it’s of the interest of many that such a discussion be kept alive because they know it will never get anywhere, and secondly, it’s a very interesting subject to be discussed, as it involves all the mysteries of a juicy conspiracy novel.

As we just said, the T9 is mostly made up of upper-middle class doctors, so it is absolutely baffling how the "entire" UK came to their rescue like it did, with Portugal’s "full" cooperation to boot.

The DL supporters say that the cellphone records from this group from that fateful night, both the existent and mainly the inexistent, are the physical evidence of this direct contact between the blocks.

It’s a fact that there exists unquestionable evidence that records of phone calls made by the T9 were deleted. The DL supporters say that what was deleted was all the “relevant London-calling” and, and to prove that is that “London” did act fast and accordingly.

Truth is we don’t know to whom those calls were made to.

The DL supporters could be right, but they also could be wrong, and as you know, the word “could” isn’t a good one to use in any courtroom.

The most accepted theory, amongst the DL supporters, about the origins of the already referred power and influence of one, or more,  of the T9, is that it derives from one of the most ignominious phenomenon of present society: paedophilia.

Textusa’s blog, we assume, has a huge share of responsibility for this belief.

It was we who exposed Jim Gamble and his obnoxious leadership of CEOP, an agency that very quickly, and inexplicably, was deployed into PDL, as we pointed out in our English Stove post.

We do not withdraw a single word of what we’ve said about Jim Gamble and "his" CEOP, although we did credit him with a bigger influence in the Maddie Affair than he really did have.

It is then the belief, among the DL supporters, that the T9 have some sort “paedophiliac stronghold” over the UK highest authorities.

This is based, among other factors, on the following:

- Firstly, in an alleged and not very clear, neither in intent nor in content, identification of David Payne by a Social Worker, Yvonne Martin, who happened, by coincidence, to be holidaying in the area at the time, and by coincidence also, with her working credencials. She states that she allegedly recognized David Payne from somewhere, but can’t quite pinpoint exactly from where, and David Payne, according to the same source, seems to have been very furtive about this encounter, which, for the DL supporters is a clear indication that Payne had a history with the Social Services.

- Secondly, the clear support of CEOP for the McCanns. This agency acted in the exact opposite way it should have with the couple, if it should have acted at all as CEOP deals with online paedophilia crimes. But even if we’re to consider that it should have acted, it should have condemned the parents’ behavior and not be supportive of it. This agency’s most strangest of attitudes towards the Maddie Affair has been “justified”, by the DL supporters, exactly the possible connections that David Payne may have within the paedophilic crime world, where as we all know, or at least have been told, politicians abound (please note: paedophilia is a disgusting transversal plague across all professions and social classes, as far as we know).

- Thirdly, the Gaspar’s statement, whereby a couple, who’re also doctors, testify that they allegedly heard a conversation between Gerry McCann and David Payne, in which the latter used explicit paedophilic gestures about the first one’s daughter, Maddie.

- Fourthly, and less spoken of, but already said here, the very hasty appearance of CEOP agents in PDL.

Other theories have been spoken off, such as secret medical experimentations, enormous value estate dealings of obscure nature going on and, as couldn’t be avoided, the Freemasonry.

Even between the DL supporters the DIRECTNESS of this connection has yet to be explained or much less understood. It's just assumed as existing.

They believe that Maddie died, and to cover this unfortunate occurrence, the UK, either from the Isles, or from their Embassy, or, most likely from both, intervened DIRECTLY.

This DIRECT intervention of UK to help the T9, proves, in their opinion, that there was a CLEAR and DIRECT LINK between Blocks A and B.

For the DL supporters the “grey area” is to be just one vague something in the background.


The DC supporters shatter the DIRECT LINK defended by the DL supporters.

They say there was never any DIRECT connection between Blocks A and B.

They state that the linkage between the blocks was a very diffuse one and made by and through the “grey area”.

They don’t say that there isn’t anything linking Blocks A and B, but say clearly that the DIRECT connection between the T9 and the UK’s highest authorities, as stated by in the DL thesis, never existed.

As said, the DC supporters state that the link between Blocks A and B is the “grey area”. And it’s much more relevant the linkage between the “grey area” and Block B, than the one between Block B and Block A.

And, according to them, if today there’s any sort of connection between Blocks A and B, it’s because the “grey area” was the enabler of such.

While DL followers make the “grey area” to be but in an obscure, unnoticed background, something that’s much undefined and just out there, the DC supporters bring it to the foreground and attribute it the utmost importance, as it’s exactly from this “grey area” that all the connections have stemmed from.

This is how are the connections between Blocks A and B, according to the DC supporters:

Who is part of or what is the “grey area”?

It’s an amalgamated something whereby various sorts of people were forcibly joined together by destiny due to Maddie’s death.

It’s diffuse and diverse in numbers and personalities, unintentional in construct but very intentional in objective.

It wasn’t something planned to be but developed out of need the moment required.

That need was not to cover-up Maddie’s death, but to make sure all that was really happening in the Ocean Club at Praia da Luz at the time of Maddie’s death went unnoticed by all. And the only way found to do that was to... cover-up Maddies' death with a Maddie's abduction.

Its organization and control evolved daily according to necessity.

For the DC supporters, in this “grey area” are the following, in decreasing order of importance: Guests, Influential ex-Pats, Mark Warner’s Ocean Club, and other ex-Pats. In the Ocean Club are included ownership, management and part of its staff.

The DC supporters base their belief on, but not limited to, the following facts:

Firstly, the unusual and completely exaggerated number of guests, their heterogeneity in professional and social statuses, that were present at the MW Ocean Club during that particular period, which we know to be the low season tourist period of Algarve.

Secondly, the total disbelief in any kind stronghold on the part of any T9, a small group of upper-middle class doctors, that would make UK move on their behalf, like it did. (This is completely unrealistic. A secret of such magnitude would be of catastrophic consequences if revealed. Anything less, wouldn’t be enough to get the UK engaged the way it did. This alone makes this theory fall by its base for two reasons. The first, most obvious, is that anyone holding such a secret knows not to open his or her mouth under the penalty of not being able to close it again. Individuals who are unconscious enough to blackmail Sovereign States with such secrets have a tendency to quickly develop either severe and usually lethal health problems or sudden desires to travel to unknown destinations. Secondly, who would, in their right mind, make such sensitive information public? You simply just don’t call a newspaper and say, “listen, I can prove that X and Y are paedos…” or “listen, I can prove that the cloning industry is developing…” or even “listen, I can prove that the UK is developing a WMD that…”. The phrase listen, I can prove that…” said to the media has far too many caveats to be used by them, however truthful it may be...)

Thirdly, the innumerous discrepancies between statements and documents provided to the PJ by people seemingly unattached in any way to the T9. Statements like those from Wilkins, Najoua and Mrs Fenn, just to refer to three, and, in terms of documentation, the total absurdity of those “Tapas reservation sheets” or whatever they’re supposed to be, that’s how fake they are, and how we’ve shown them to be, on our various QUIZ NIGHT posts.

Fourthly, the inexistent Tapas dinners, which are not only not denied in any way either by any guest or by the Ocean Club, but are indeed confirmed by them, and even by a Quiz Night Mistress.

Fifthly, the fact that not one single photograph was taken of the Tapas dinners, either by any of T9 (although Dianne Webster says she did take some) or by any other guest in the whole resort. It would be expected that such a picture would surface sooner or later, as these dinners took place, allegedly, on various days, for almost a week.

Sixthly, the incomprehensible need to have to line up on the day to get a reservation at the Tapas restaurant, when evidence shows that on every night there were more than enough spare covers.

Seventhly, the exaggerated number of specific staff hired by the Ocean Club, namely in nannies and various sport monitors, for the low season tourist period of Algarve. Which, coincidentally, were relieved before the Algarve's tourist high season arrived. This collective hiring seems more befitting to a specific “special event” rather than done for the whole summer.

The DC thesis is an EXCLUSIVE of Textusa's blog, of its authors and readers in a joint effort. The fact that it’s so little echoed will be dealt with at the end of the post.


Irrelevant of each one’s supportive arguments, the main difference between the DL and the DC theories, is the relevance and intervention of the “grey area”.

In the DL, it’s of little, or no importance, although, here and there, it does have a minor intervention in events, whilst in the DC, is the most important.

Let’s look of what can be extrapolated from each one, taking each one's supportive arguments as true.


It confirms that the T9 were NEGLIGENT, as we have at least one independent witness, Mrs Fenn, an ex-Pat allegedly resident in the apartment above the McCann's testifying to that.

It allows this negligence not to be a TOTAL one as we have various witnesses, such as Wilkins and the Tapas staff, stating that when the T9 allegedly dined at Tapas, they allegedly had a child checking system in place. (This negligence can even be later totally denied because it seems that, by coincidence, the T9 had, on each one of the nights, one of them not feeling well, and stayed in the respective apartment, so, if needed, it can be claimed that there was always one adult with the children (but then one must ask why accept being called negligent all this time and not use such valid argument before in own defense? It’s completely absurd, but let’s not be too picky about it, shall we?). By coincidence again, the only night the whole T9 group felt healthy was on May 3rd)

It allows for the T9 behavior towards their children to be considered completely inappropriate, absolutely reprehensible, and adamantly condemnable. So much so that whenever one justifies one’s behavior for whatever reason within the Maddie Affair context, one is obliged to use “But I’m not the one who left/abandoned my children all alone in a strange apartment in a foreign land…”

It allows to smear completely the T9’s reputation, but theirs alone… According to the “WH”, it wasn’t due to negligence that there was abduction (remember, they also don’t believe in it), but that this whole mess is because the T9 are trying to cover up their completely irresponsible, egocentric and immature behavior, which may even have been the cause of Maddie’s death (e.g. a drunken and momentaniously irate Kate striking Maddie too hard, or, the most heard of, that they drugged the children into sleep so they would be quiet while they went out to get drunk, and accidentally overdosed Maddie).

It allows for swinging to have happened, but solely between the T9Dianne Webster being the group’s appointed “nanny” for the week.

It allows for Robert Murat to have been fingered maliciously by Jane Tanner, and is nothing but an unfortunate collateral victim.

As the T9 had no local help, it makes Smith see Gerry McCann disposing Maddie’s body.(Two options here, either the Portuguese priest had orders from his superiors in Lisbon who, in turn, had received them from the Portuguese Government who, in turn, has been “asked” by the UK Government (do throw in the Vatican, if you wish to do so, anywhere you like), and Gerry was heading for the Church, or he was heading for the beach, to hide the body there, before coming back for it later).

It allows for the Ocean Club to have an ambiguous, albeit victimized role in all this. The discrepancies we’ve found from them, both in statements and documentation, could be the result of them having had their arm twisted by those powerful people from “London” that made the OC “fix” and “see” things according to orders in order to fit to the abduction theory which “London” decided would be “The Official Version”.

And lastly, but very important, it allows for all the guests at the OC to be just guests and all PdL ex-Pats, to be just PdL ex-Pats, all perfectly innocent bystanders to a tragedy.

So, in broad lines, the DIRECT LINK between Blocks A and B allows for the “WH” story to be:

The T9, an obnoxious set of people, are guilty as hell. Faced with Maddie’s death, they called “London” for help.

“London” immediately mobilized all available means, and shamefully helped them, and in the process forced Portugal to do the same.

“London” decided that the “The Official Version” would be ABDUCTION.

The T9 were able, together with “London”, which quickly evolved into a “UK”, and the help of “Portugal” to first hide Maddie’s body somewhere, and later dispose of it, and have officially declared that the child had been abducted, all a lie, of course. (the way Maddie’s body is disposed of is as unclear as the origins of the T9 to influence UK the way they did)

“UK” and “Portugal” hampered the investigation, tampered with evidence, all in order to protect the T9, the ONLY guilty ones.

The guests and ex-Pats, are as innocent as you and me.

The T9 are NEGLIGENT, DRUNKS and some possibly PAEDOPHILES, and it’s unacceptable that they haven’t been brought to justice yet!

There are some variances to the plot depending on the specific “WH” you’re talking about, but pull a thread here, and stitch another there, and you’ll get the exact same “sweater”.


It implies that the Guests, Influential ex-Pats, Mark Warner’s Ocean Club, other ex-Pats and the T9 are ALL an integral part of the cover-up.

It’s more logical as only such a large and influential group would make UK act the way it did, and subsequently, as explained, put Portugal in the same boat

It implies that for such a large and influential group to participate in a collective cover-up, can only be due to a collective loss of something or a collective fear of some sort of consequences. The only likely scenario for such collective loss and fear, is a swinging event, hosted by the OC, with knowledge and possible participation of local ex-Pats. If this was to be known publicly, it would indeed mean a collective fear of loss of the various individual reputations, and its respective consequences that these sexually-related scandals usually have in the UK.

It allows for the cover-up to have been created to protect the larger group and not the T9. The T9 were only minor participants in the choir of this whole spectacle.

It explains why the same media that protected the McCanns, never, ever, let drop the neglect, rather continuously reinforced it, as part of drawing total attention towards the T9's sole responsibility for Maddie’s death.

It explains, for the same reasons, why there was a “paedophilia smearing campaign” against Payne, making the public think that he was the whole key to the evident secrecy, to the obvious hiding of what really happened and to UK’s direct intervention. The more attention the T9 got, the less attention the “grey area” got.

It allows for Murat not to be an innocent bystander, but part of the cast, and in whose house Maddie’s body was most likely first hidden.

It implies that Smith saw Gerry with a live girl his arms (as per the Smith’s description), a fac-simile of Maddie (most likely Jane Tanner’s daughter) so there would be a visual contact of an abductor that night, as part of the screen-play written, as we know, badly and in a hurry that very same night, by those of the “grey area”.

Explains why the same media who protected the McCanns suddenly dropped them like hot potatoes after Kate’s book publication… a book that points the finger directly to the “grey area”.

It implies that Mrs Fenn is not an independent witness but rather a “neglect reinforcer” to make sure there was no diversion of attention away from the T9.

It implies that the Ocean Club, as active player in the drama, was and is a cooperative part of the cover-up, by confirming voluntarily, through various statements, the inexistent as existent such as the Tapas dinners, the child checking system, the Tapas reservation line-up and the absurd sheets.

It confirms that there were no Tapa dinners.

It explains the exaggerated hiring of specific staff by the Ocean Club, namely in nannies and various sport monitors, for this special swinging event hosted by the resort.

It proves, with all of the above, that there was NO NEGLIGENCE, the foundation of the “Official Version”. The T9 behavior may be sexually questionable, but that is a totally private issue, but there’s absolutely nothing that indicates less than absolute normality towards their children.

Lastly, it allows for the DL supporters, the one opposing the DC theory,  to cry out for justice solely for the T9. As the “grey area” controls fully the events, only one of two things may result with this cry: either the T9 will get axed alone, which seems to be the scenario in the near future, or there will be no axing at all as has been the case, and continue to be so if the T9 are able to get, somehow, out of the tight spot they’re currently in.

It’s easy to cry out for justice when you have justice safely locked up in your basement, isn’t it? You can then even shout it out in the most convincing of manners, can’t you?


As said before, truth is unique. Pretending not to “understand” evidence doesn’t mean it’s not there.

From what has been stated above, there seem to be two different kinds of people who think the T9 are guilty.

Ones who think as the T9 have the sole responsibility for Maddie’s death they should be the ONLY ones accountable for it, and punished accordingly;

And others who think that although the T9 indeed did have the sole responsibility for Maddie’s death, this was NOT the most heinous crime that occurred that night, and so, yes, the T9 should be accountable and punished for Maddie’s death, but there are many others that are also accountable for the disgraceful circus that the death of this girl represented.

Some are after the McCanns, others after the truth, which includes the McCanns.

For the first, the DL theory, with its implications and consequences are perfectly satisfactory: only the T9 are axed.

For the latter, the DL theory is far, far away from the truth.

What you want the truth to be is a really different matter altogether as is how much of it do you need to quench your “thirst for truth”.

Do not be vain and say you want the truth. Like in the movie, do ask yourself first if you really can handle the truth. And also ask yourself can the truth handle you, the general public, knowing it?

Believe me, there are things, and now I’m not specifically referring to this case, best left unknown.

I, for one, prefer to know things in a general way, as too much detail hampers one mind with too much clutter and avoids one enjoying life as one should.

What I do not like is to be taken for a fool. And that what has happened with the Maddie Affair.

So how does one recognize a DL supporter?

The DL supporter will support, in the strongest terms possible, anything and everything that is to reinforce the T9 guilt, but will not allow any sort of debate, reasonable or not, about the “grey area”, Guests, Influential ex-Pats, Ocean Club and ex-Pats, no matter how much evidence points to their involvement (the Ocean Club is an exception here and there, as some discrepancies are too evident... but the information to be obtained from the OC is only true, if it's against the T9).

The "grey area" is, for the DL supporter it’s a completely out-of-bounds.


Because the “grey area” is to remain untouched, is to be preserved intact in the background from where it should have never been noticed.

But for the DC supporter, all is to be debated and challenged (although there’s a limit to the number of times the same issue has to be discussed).

Things just have to make sense, that’s all.

Next time you see a WH one one hand condemning adamantly the T9, but on the other vehemently denying any involvement from those referred as part of the “grey area”, even defending them as if they're kin, do look again at the colour of their hat’s lining.

It’s most likely to be spotlessly White on the outside indeed, but might be of a totally different colour on the inside…

But as we’ve said in our Tony Bennett post:

“There is a difference between BH promoters of neglect, which we fiercely fight, and those who believe it with sincerity, which we obviously respect.

We think the British Empire motto of Divide and Conquer should never be forgotten. It was highly successful in conquering empires. We don't want them to achieve unnecessary infighting.”

And in a comment to the Wide Open post:

“We don't claim to be correct in everything we write, but we are sincere in coming to the conclusions we reach and welcome corrections from our friends.

We also have to sift misinformation from those posing as friends.”

What we hope to achieve with this post, is to widen your horizons as to who, among those that pose as friends, may be a “WH”, or better said, a BH.


To ask for Justice, you have, obviously, first to be just and fair.

And believe me, in this Maddie Affair, it’s a very difficult thing to achieve, if not an impossibility.

Let me explain what I mean.

Stop your watches at the moment Maddie died, and let’s assume it was manslaughter, an accidental death.

Now determine who should be punished and with what.

Isolate those exact same people, and incriminate them, TODAY, for the exact same events.

Would the sentence be the same?

No, and you know it wouldn’t. Why? Because you have to add the fact that they were convinced (most likely willing to participate because they had, proportionally, as much to lose as all others) to participate in all the events that followed and have resulted in all this mess.

So asking only for the McCanns neck is hardly asking for justice, is it?

Are we exempting the T9 from responsibility? Obviously not.

As we said, Maddie’s death happened solely within the T9. But what happened afterwards didn’t, but we must remind the T9, especially the McCann couple, that they were a very active part in things having reached this state of affairs.

So Gonçalo Amaral, once again proves how wise he is when he says that someone will somehow find a diplomatic solution to all this.


As said the DC theory is an EXCLUSIVE of the Textusa’s blog

It was fruit of dedicated analysis of various public documentation available and internal heated debate.

It was written, and will continue to be done that way, very slowly, and in a very thought out way.

Always making sure that we had our foot set on solid ground before we take the next step, and never afraid to step back if the ground we thought firm, proves not to be.

We're fully aware that blog has broken ground.

We’ve proved that the Smith Stroller, or now generally assumed to be Gerry McCann, was walking around with a live little girl and desiring to be seen;

We’ve proved that the Tapas dinners didn’t exist, and shown how much information it contains that's compromising for many guests, at least those whose names appear;

We’ve proved that the watersports alibi of some of the T9 for the May 3rd afternoon was false;

We’ve debunked Mrs Fenn as an independent witness;

We’ve proved that the British Police withheld documentation from the PJ;

We’ve debunked that there are “Unpublished PJ Files” (however we're sure that there is many relevant documents NOT belonging to the files that are out there somewhere...);

And yet, not because it’s our blog, we see very little echoed out there of what we’ve proved here.

Strange, isn’t it?

We don’t even see our opinions debated. Just puerile insult or “just because” justifications for our blog not to be taken seriously

The largest insult catalog has been used more than thrice against Textusa.

However, we do see, that what we’ve stated before and were ridiculed for having done that, is being, little by little being taken as fact.

Little by little, people are realizing that here the pieces fall into place, and do not need to be forced or twisted to fit.

We here pride ourselves in discussing things openly between ourselves and then with our readers.

We’ve long got used to being a rogue blog, hardly mentioned and rarely supported (no offense beloved readers... you know who we're referring to).

That fortunately has given us the possibility to watch things from where we stand and understand both the subtle and non-subtle changes in some personalities that have occurred with some of the many intervening people of this saga.

As a very good friend of mine told me the other day, after 5 years, there are only two kind of bloggers about Maddie: those out of self-interest, with not a passion for justice, and those out of interest, and in some cases, even passion.

As always, we’ll leave it up to you what decision you make about us.


  1. I wish a very nice day to all; and i must say i loved it, the post.

    A very good one (again) ! Today's article may well be long but it is also very clear.

    As a reader ,after reading it read i was able to identify me.

    See You all later.

  2. My God Textusa and sisters,

    After reading this so much would make sense.
    So very much.
    Blackwatch had a link of all people involved, much bigger fish than the t9. And he linked the connections and guess what he was closed down.
    Not taken to court, no threatened, just closed down which makes me wonder if he was closest to the truth.

    I could never understand on forums why those who just took the question away for a second about maybe it was not the way we were writing that landed up getting me banned on more than one occasion. Just by asking a simple question.

    And as I always said Clarence Mitchell might have pretended to represent them but all he did was to make them increasingly guilty and hated.

    Again I have to say that nothing I have read on this case in all these years, and I absorb everything written has held such resonance for me as this.

    From the Secret Service arriving immediately. I wish I had kept Blackwatch's docs. He mentioned all the dynasties there and their British counterparts.

    Well done sisters.
    I want the truth.
    And this is the first time I feel I am getting it.

    And hence the mothers explanation "they have taken her". They have moved her body.

  3. fantastic posting tex...may the truth soon be known/public.

  4. The reason that nothing from this blog is echoed is, quite simply, that an echo only comes from the real thing.

  5. This post really puts things into perpective. It shows how far reaching this affair is and the potential number of people and groups involved.

  6. Wonderful post. summarizes everything and shows how some love to complicate a crime that should be very simple at the beginning.

  7. Don't resist to post such good news.
    From Joana Morais Blog, the latest post:

    "Following the ruling of the Court of Appeals of Lisbon on October 14, 2010 in which the judges decreed that Gonçalo Amaral's books could be sold, revoking the first judgement of the Court a quo [lower court/court decision's that was appealed] that had granted a banning injunction, and in a new legal setback for the McCanns, we can now confirm that the judge has ordered the immediate devolution of the 7.500 copies of the book "Maddie, the Truth of the Lie" that were entrusted to Isabel Duarte, lawyer of the McCann couple. The lawyer has, of today, 10 working days to fulfil that order.

    On the other hand, we are also able to confirm that one of the several claims for defamation made by the McCann couple against several Portuguese persons, specifically one targeting criminal psychologist and university professor Dr. Paulo Sargento as been archived by the Public Ministry. Nevertheless, and according to information that was provided to us, the McCanns' lawyer, Isabel Duarte, intends to proceed with the claim despite not having the backing of the Public Minstry.

    More news on this subject, on tomorrow's edition of Correio da Manhã.

    In Spanish at Mercedes's blog, with muchas gracias for the breaking news.

  8. Tex, they can't admit what you say in the blog! That's why they're silent about it. It's like being caught in the arms of a lover. What can you say "Honey, it's not what you think!"? Serves any good. In this case, they haven't been caught in the act, but they have been "seen" (shown) with a "friend" (information you're showing), so they and their "wife" (their story) just pretend you you weren't seen hoping the neighbors won't gossip. That's why they're silent. If you had the help that Blacksmith, Spudgun or Brown have in spreading their word, I think this would be over quick.
    Excellent post. Clear as water!

    Rambling and confused drivel, as it seems we have come to expect.
    I long since gave up reading entire articles from that source as they are incoherent babble, in the main and rather self-aggrandising.
    But I gave this one a chance - I wish I hadn't and have just wasted part of my life.

    Yesterday at 9:11 pm:
    i read it, its not clear at all,there we go, we all have opinions,

    Yesterday at 10:26 pm:
    am i right in thinking that the reason from the author for the cover up is that they(grey area)were swingers & one of the greys is murat whose house was used to first conceal maddie?firstly... eddie was used to search murats house &.......whatever,thats fried my brain cell

    I started to wilt by the time I'd got to black and white hats. I'll try again when I'm feeling less frazzled. However, after Textusa's previous frankly bonkers posting on Mrs Fenn and her shopping habits, I'm thinking that she needs to take a holiday. I hear that Praia da Luz is nice at this time of year!

    Yesterday at 11:00 pm:
    I've had two attempts at reading it but it didn't get any clearer second time round, just made my head hurt.

    Today at 12:12 am
    I normally warm to Textusa's blog, but she
    can cause 'hat juggling' with black hats and
    white hats and now grey hats!

    On another thread, Panda discredits Smith’s sighting because he took more than 20 days to speak to the PJ. But for her Fenn’s seemed reliable even if she took more than 100 days. Go figure!

  12. ..."By coincidence again, the only night the whole T9 group felt healthy was on May 3rd)"

    ah, of the children was of Tanner and O'Brien's was ill and vomiting (alledgedly), which allowed for O'Brien's temporary absence from the table
    and for Tanner's flip-floping up the street at the exact moment the "abductor" took Madeleine!

  13. Brilhante analise do que tem Sido este caso desde o inicio.
    Se eu tivesse de encontrar uma palavra para adjectivar o que ele representou/ representa para muitos que dele se acercaram para tecer conjecturas, essa palavra seria OPORTUNISMO.
    Depressa o publico, mais letrado ou menos letrado, percebeu as mentiras e a estrategia dos directamente envolvidos. Depois cada um so teve de adaptar a circunstancia aquilo que pessoalmente mais lhe convinha. Assim, temos gente a usar o caso para atacar grupos de interesses de que discorda, ou simplesmente nao gosta, mesmo que nada tenham a haver com o caso em concreto. A descida da maconaria a rua, das experiencias medicas, dos congressos farmaceuticos, das armas nucleares no Iraque, das conspiracoes politicas, da cuscovillhice journalistica e do odio visceral entre advogados e juizes, Sao apenas alguns dos exemplos. O mais bizarro de todos, para mim que sou das Biologias, foi a hipotese de Madeleine ser um clone.
    A imaginacao humana, nao tem de facto limites, quando a loucura se une a indignacao. Dois extremos que nos movem para la do que e racional, para la do que e a razao. Pura e simplesmente alucinamos, e o fenomeno torna-se perigoso porque facilmente adquire um caracter collectivo. Cont

  14. Cont:
    De quem e a culpa? E de quem fez o pecado original.... Se o grupo nao tivesse mentido, ou se pelo menos um tivesse dito a verdade, ja nao teria havido espaco para tanta loucura.
    O que mais me surpreende e fascina, e olhar para estes 5 anos e ver que foram tantos os momentos em que o grupo podia ter invertido o curso dos acontecimentos mas nao o fez. Pior, fascinante... alimentou-o. So se alimenta o que nos convem e neste caso, se algo convem e porque se afasta da verdade.
    Porque havemos de complicar algo que Pode ter Sido Tao simples, Tao banal, Tao possivel? O Resort para rentabilizar as instalacoes em epoca baixa, propoe um tipo de ferias que nao depende do estado do mar ou do raiar do sol. Olhando para os comentarios feitos no "trip advisor" por clientes de MW em diferentes partes da Europa, muito antes de Maio 2007, vemos que ha uma certa unanimidade em considerar o pacote de ferias optimo, mesmo que a comida seja sofrivel. O servico de babysitter e bom e alguns ate comentam sobre a localizacao dos resorts em locais isolados (Grecia) onde nao ha nada a Volta para ver. Se calhar e mesmo isso que se vende-ferias isoladas, inclusivas. Como o target Sao casais relativamente jovens, o servico de babysitter tem de ser um primor. Ou o objectivo das ferias e um desastre.
    Nestas ferias especiais na PDL, algo correu mal. Provavelmente um acidente que acontece ao Mais responsavel dos pais. Depois alguem panicou, ou varios panicaram. A razao Mais obvia para mim e o embaraco do tipo de ferias e um sentimento exarcebado de culpa. Neste panico e nesta culpa nao ha tempo nem espaco para lagrimas ou para um Luto
    normal, por Mais que a perda doa. Tiveram de agir rapido para calarem o panico e redimirem a culpa. Ate ai, nao fugiram ao normal- um simulacro de rapto e o que a maioria dos pais envolvidos em situacoes identicas faz. Depois e so criar o ambiente e a paranoia que normalmente se gera a Volta das situacoes extremas que envolvem criancas e nao deixar que a chama arrefecesse. O calor alimenta o coracao. O arrefecimento da lugar a razao. Foi para o coracao que os McCann trabalharam desde o inicio e acredito que nao premeditaram o monstro que estavam a criar. Foi acontecendo, e a dado momento ficaram encurralados por ele, sem grande margem para voltarem atras. Ja havia um Fundo e algumas dezenas a viverem a custa dele. Cont

  15. Cont:
    Porque e que o embaixador ingles e G Brown, se envolveram? Pelo coracao e porque nao tinham como nao se envolverem. O caso aconteceu fora de portas e quando assim e, e a diplomacia e os governos que tem de se mexer para darem apoio a familia que se encontra deslocada. Infelizmente, nos portugueses nao estamos habituados a este apoio da nossa diplomacia, quando estamos em apuros no estrangeiro. A nao ser que haja uma guerra e seja necessaria uma repatriacao. Somos abandonados a nossa sorte e e isso que e condenavel. O Estado nao nos ouve e finge bem que nao nos ve. G Brown, a semelhanca de mil hares, deixou-se guiar pelo coracao e usou os poderes que tinha, inicialmente convencido de que era um rapto e rapidamente impelido pelo que o gesto, enquanto politico podesse traduzir em termos de popularidade e votos. Imaginem que era um rapto a serio, que havia um pedido de resgate e que a mediacao inglesa trazia de volta a Casa, sa e salva, Madeleine. Isto valia em votos e popularidade mais que a melhor das campanhas. Brown foi ingenuo e opportunista. Quando percebeu a trama, era tarde demais para voltar atras e corrigir o erro. No fundo e igual a todos os politicos que ocupam cargos de topo. Sofre do sindrome errofobico.
    Neste sindrome, ao politico e exigido que nao erre ( Lembram-se das Palavras lendarias do nosso PR nos tempos aureos em que era PM? " nunca me engano") e quando erra, dificilmente o assume. O erro afasta votos e popularidade, por isso em vez de o assumirem, os politicos assumem "vendas" que lhes enebriam os olhos e preferem atirar para a frente ignorando o erro. Estao sempre convencidos que o eleitor tem memoria curta e se deixa enganar. Nem sempre e assim e ja muitos cairam por erros banais. Guterres, errou uma conta banal numa pergunta traicoeira feita por um jornalista "rapozao" e assinou o inicio do seu declinio.
    E assim que eu vejo o envolvimento politico inicial. Depois tomou a dimensao circence e catastrofica que caracterizou todo o caso, com figurantes a entrarem e sairem consoante a onda de opportunismo vivida em cada momento.
    So GA foi igual a ele mesmo desde o inicio. Invulneravel, focado, entregue ao trabalho que o Estado exigia. Mas ele e policia, experiente e provavelmente apaixonado pela carreira que abracou. Tanto successo, nao e so competencia e empirismo, e concerteza muita paixao tambem. Os bons profissionais Sao os que se apaixonam pelo que fazem mas nao deixam que o coracao se sobreponha a razao. Neste caso, 1(GA) - 0(GB).

  16. Textusa and others,

    Does this lead the way for the arrest of Kate and Gerry and end of the story. No more looking into what actually went on that weekend, or into the leaking, or into Clarence or into any of it.
    Kate and Gerry getting ready to take the entire rap when we know that there are many, many people who need to go to trial for obstructing justice.

    What gives me faith is I know there are many of us who are just not into the McCanns incarceration but that want truth and justice about all the strange incidents along the way.

    A can of worms has been opened and the worms are all spread out in the rich earth, breeding and growing bigger.

    I want justice for Madeleine more than I want incarceration for her parents.

    Clarence Mitchell needs to be arrested and asked about who he actually worked for and represented and it all needs to start again at that point.

    And we have been led on a goose chase for so many years following stuff of no relevance.
    Smoke and mirrors at its best.

  17. Since in MMF many posted about the post here and complaint about not understanding it, I think better they go back to school and improve their skills. A better qualification in some subjects will open their brains and make some room for different opinions.
    In Portugal they use to say: " quando alguem nao sabe dansar diz que a sala esta torta".

  18. Hi Textusa,

    I know this is your blog, but I object to reading comments from other blogs on your comments. If I wished to read the comments on, I would simply pay that web site a visit.

    Thanks for a very interesting post.

  19. Good after noon.

    Don´t worry if the people forget came here today.
    A magazine and a newspaper have a lot about Caso Maddie. ( i need a Really)

    ID must return the books but seems she don´t want or anything like that .......

    Usually i can not understan very well.

    A lot to read and to copy but today i could not.No time.
    Be well and a lot of success.

  20. Madeleine McCann Case: Judge orders the immediate return of the books

    Is about that today.

  21. Obrigada MC pela informacao. Sei que e muito trabalho, mas espero que publique a informacao no seu Blog, para quem esta fora de Portugal poder ter acesso a ela.
    Como sempre, la irei dar uma espreitadela e passar a palavra.

  22. ID, deve ter destruido os livros. Ela e os seus clientes, do alto da sua arrogancia, julgam-se intocaveis e pensam que por serem eles nao tem de obedecer nem cumprir as decisoes dos tribunais. Exactamente o mesmo principio que esta por tras da ideia de que por ser Gerry e Kate a dizerem que foi um rapto, temos de acreditar e somos processados se decidirmos questionar.
    E tempo de Portugal deixar de estar de joelhos nest a historia. Afinal nem o nosso povo, nem a nossa policia fez nada de mal. Foram recebidos de braces abertos e a policia fez um trabalho coerente e independente, como fazem as grandes policias do Mundo. Nao tem culpa que as evidencias apontem para o envolvimento dos pais e amigos e nao tem culpa que o grupo tenha mentido e recusado colaborar em momentos fulcrais da investigacao. Portugal, teve muita paciencia e a policia foi demasiado complacente. Devia te-los constituido arguidos nos primeiros dias( o grupo inteiro) e te- los proibido de contactarem uns com os outros. Provavelmente o caso tinha Sido rapidamente resolvido e nem era preciso vireo os caes CSI.
    Espero que fique a licao para outros casos e que se faca justica para Madeleine, doa a quem doer.

  23. Hello to all,
    yesterday I read somewhere that the books are kept in a warehouse in Lisbon (armazém na zona da Matinha, Lisboa). Bird-brained me, can't remember where I read this, going to look it up, if I find it I 'll come back and post it.


  24. I'm back,

    Here is where I read about the books being kept in a warehouse in Lisbon:

    "Já esta semana, a advogada da editora Guerra & Paz, declara que, afinal, os exemplares estão armazenados na zona da Matinha, em Lisboa, e que deveriam ser entregues logo que houvesse uma decisão judicial conforme. A1ª Vara do Tribunal Cível de Lisboa, notificou agora Isabel Duarte, fiel depositária dos livros, para no prazo de 10 dias, proceder à sua entrega à Guerra e Paz."

    Peço desculpa à queridissima Maria (MC) por não me lembrar que tinha lido isto no seu blog, mas foi já tarde, noite dentro, e o sono...
    Espero que não se importe que tenha feito um "copianço" e "colagem" deste extracto aqui.
    Muito obrigada!

    In english:
    ...this week, the lawyer for "Guerra e Paz" publishers, declares that, after all, the books are stored in a warehouse in the Matinha area, in Lisbon, and should be handed over as soon as there was a judicial decision in conformity. A Lisbon Court has now notified Isabel Duarte, the legal trustee of the books, to hand them over to the publishers in a 10 days time limit.
    ( 10 consecutive days, not work days, ID must rush...someone in Joana Morais blog posted a funny comment about Isabel D. going like mad through the book shelves in FNAC and El Corte grabbing all the copies she could get her hands on, this if she and her clients had destroyed the books and had to try to replace them, of course)


  25. I must say a big thank to Sisters!

    With Your´s blog mine (lol, a copy and paste blog with many cases) begin to be reading.....

    Thank You, Sisters!

  26. Roseanne:

    Jamais me importo. O meu blog é completamente feito de cópias e colagens. O que eu encontro e publico é para ser utilizado por todos os que queiram.


    sorry..... You are the messengers but the good ones!

  27. I wish to All, Nice People a nice night.
