Asking the questions about what really happened to Madeleine McCann



Mr Clarence Mitchell Sunday 2 May 2010
Consultant, Crisis and Media Management
Freud Communications

LONDON W1T 3EB

Dear Mr Mitchell

re: New video produced by Jon Corner using images of Madeleine McCann with eye shadow and jewellery - now on YouTube

We write to express our concern about the images of Madeleine used by you, the McCanns and Jon Corner in the video message which was widely trailed in today’s newspapers and has already attracted several hundred views on YouTube. We understand that you as the McCanns’ chief public relations adviser must have approved the production and distribution of this video. Indeed, you are quoted in one of today’s newspapers as follows:

“McCann family spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: ‘The video is designed to remind people that the search for Madeleine is ongoing. Just because she’s not in the headlines every day doesn’t mean nothing is being done. Kate and Gerry are still devoting a large part of their daily lives to the search’.

The fact that your clients the McCanns explicitly approved the distribution of this video is clear from the following report of SKY News:
“Parents of Madeleine McCann, who went missing three years ago, have released a new video and photo of their missing daughter to mark the third anniversary of the girl's disappearance”.
The concern we have and that is being expressed by thousands of others is the use of clearly-posed photographs of a three-year-old wearing make-up, such as eye shadow, a necklace and lipstick.
You and your clients the McCanns have from the day Madeleine was reported missing claimed explicitly and on many occasions that Madeleine must have been abducted by a paedophile, or paedophiles, often described by you and your clients as ‘predatory’, ‘evil’, or ‘a monster’.

Yet the images of Madeleine that you have allowed to be used in your campaign are of a child looking much older than her actual years - the very kinds of images that often appeal to paedophiles. Even former police detective, now leading criminologist and child protection expert Mark Williams-Thomas, who has often spoken with strong sympathy and understanding for your clients, has today commented adversely on the McCann Team’s use of these images of Madeleine on ‘Twitter’. He said, in five separate messages earlier today:


1) “On the eve of Madeleine's disappearance I agree with the release of a new photo but question the appropriateness of the photo chosen”
2) “Have not yet seen the new Madeleine video but the photograph is so inappropriate & damaging on so many levels - ill advised again”
3) “Am trying to find out now who gave advise [sic] to use the make up photo - so damaging - as I know what it will become”
4) Jon Corner may b able 2 answer ur question on who advised the McCanns to release THAT picture. He's friends with Esther McVey”
5) “No response yet re who advised of the use of recent photo of Madeleine - as soon as I get a response will let u know”.
There has also been questioning of the following statement in one of today’s newspapers:

“Kate and Gerry McCann have released a new picture of their daughter Madeleine as they prepare to commemorate tomorrow’s third anniversary of her disappearance. The photo shows her when she was three after a raid on the dressing-up box - she has a pink bow in her hair and a gold bead necklace and is wearing blue eyeshadow”.

The statement that the photograph shows her ‘after a raid on the dressing-up box’ implies that Madeleine made herself up but is open to serious question for at least the following reasons:

a) it is doubtful if Madeleine could have put on the necklace herself without adult help
b) similarly, the eyeshadow looks neatly put on in certain places around the eye, whereas a three-year-old attempting to put on eyeshadow would have probably made a mess of it
c) Madeleine appears to have no eyelashes. Photographic experts who have analysed the picture suggest that colour has been digitally added on, hiding they eyelashes
d) Madeleine’s eyebrows look quite different from other photos, possibly covered with some form of make-up
e) There appear to be two obvious brush tool traces above the eye on the right of the photo.

Thus, whatever the truth about the circumstances under which this picture was taken, there are very good grounds for believing that an adult has applied the make-up and also of course been there to take the photograph. Taken together with two of the other images of Madeleine shown in the film, it is perhaps not surprising that, for example, on sites like ‘Twitter’, ‘Facebook’ and other forums, comments like the following have been made:

“The picture of Madeleine reminds me of JonBenét Ramsey’s beauty pageant photos, that kind of images could entice sexual predators”.

“If CEOP endorse this type of public relations for a supposed missing child, then their role in child protection has to be questioned!”

“The latest photo the McCanns have released makes for very uncomfortable viewing. Alongside the Gaspars’ statements, something is very wrong here”.

The context here includes the ever-increasing sexualisation of young children, highlighted recently when a high street store, Primark, had to withdraw the marketing of padded bikini tops to 7-year-olds, following a storm of protest from parents. The dressing up of young children to look adult has been condemned by most child welfare organisations and with good reason. For example, a recent Home Office commissioned report stated: “The evidence gathered in the review suggests a clear link between consumption of sexualised images, a tendency to view women as objects and the acceptance of aggressive attitudes and behaviour as the norm”.


The circumstances in which that photograph of Madeleine was taken may have been wholly innocent, but as many people have been saying today, its use by your clients the McCanns in their attempts to locate a missing child possibly abducted by paedophiles is surely inappropriate. We would therefore ask you and your clients to remove the video from circulation and from YouTube.
Your clients obviously still want the whole world to look for Madeleine and not forget about Madeleine. The problem is that we do not know where to look nor who to look for. For example, fourteen different artists’ impressions have been published in British newspapers of people whom the McCanns claim are either the suspected abductor or ‘persons of interest’. Twelve of these are men and two are women.


As for where to look, the advice given by the McCanns’ private investigators suggests that despite using the services of many of them for nearly three years, there is not a single piece of useful information that you can give to the public which would enable us to know where to begin to look. Despite millions of pounds being spent on Metodo 3, Control Risks Group, Red Defence, Oakley International, senior ex-Metropolitan Police detectives, senior ex-MI5 security staff and now the team of ex-Detective Inspector Dave Edgar and ex-Detective Sergeant Arthur Cowley, we have not a jot of information on where to look.


Mr Edgar told newspapers last year that he was ‘convinced’ (his word) that Madeleine was being held ‘in a prison lair within 10 miles of Praia da Luz in the lawless hills around’. Subsequently you and Mr Edgar told a press conference that a conversation at 2.00am (which had been kept secret for two-and-a-half years) between a British banker who had been drinking round the bars of Barcelona and a woman looking like Victoria Beckham and with an Australian accent was ‘a strong lead’ and as a result a nationwide alert was put out in Australia. Prior to that, in December 2007, Mr Francisco Marco, the boss of the first major detective agency used by your clients, Metodo 3, told the British media that he ‘knew Madeleine was alive’, that ‘his men are closing in on where she is being kept’ and that ‘Madeleine will be home by Christmas’.


It would surely be much more helpful to the public to give out the best description of the abductor that the McCanns’ various detective agencies have, between them, been able to compile, so we know who to look for, and to give the public as much information as you are able to about what really happened to her. You have often been quoted in the newspapers as saying: “Our investigations are confidential…we cannot disclose the information our investigators have” etc. But this gives the public no help at all in knowing where to look for Madeleine.
I trust you will pass these comments on to your clients. At the same time we are raising with Mr Jim Gamble, Chief Executive of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP), and other organisations concerned with the welfare of children, whether they approve of appeals for a missing child being made using images of that child in a pose for the cameras and with a considerable degree of adult make-up.


Yours sincerely

Tony Bennett,
Secretary

Having happily aflicted Madeleine with every known comunicable desease under the Sun, now she is aparently a quadraplegic, unable to dress herself.

And THAT'S what you really want, isn't it? How well Kate put it, when she said, 'There are some people who do not want Madeleine found.'

TB, who do you think you are, and with authority do you wrote a letter to Mr. Mitchell? Who are you TB to show any concern about the new images / video released? With all do respect to Mr. William-Thomas, but I don´t see the purpose of Mr. Thomas (if he really told those messages - 1.2.3.4.5, or also a.b.c.d.e) to say this or that about the new released photos or video. What is really your point Mr. Thomas? You as a father should know that a child with that age can perfectly put a necklace herself or dress herself, without any help, about pink bow in her hair, about blue eye shadow, a child with that age can put in her hair herself a pink bow in front of a mirror, about the blue eye shadow, her mum can do it, or even a chid herself. I´m not a father, but even I know that, I have friends who are parents with little girls with that age, and these little girls can do that themselves, so I dont´understand your point Mr. Thomas. You have no right to criticize their choices, she is not your daughter. What is the importance of being a friend of Ester McVee? I don´t see what do you have to see with that? It´s none of your business, neither TB´s business. About YouTube, this video should continue to be there. As for paedophiles, neither you Mr. Thomas nor TB knows if they are involved or not? As for as I know, no evidence of that involvement. The ones who knows are the PI´s team. If the couple decided to release this video with those photos, I´m sure they know what they are doing with the proper advices of Dave Edgar´s team, CEOP, Mr. Ernie Allen, Jim Gamble. So, with all do respect Mr. Thomas, you have no right to criticize, you may have your opinion, but, that doesn´t give you any right to make such comments, and the same about TB.

More distortions. Metodo3 did not say that they would have Madeleine home for Christmas. They said that they hoped to. And that's just for starters.

Bennett is using this photograph as another platform for his sick ideas. I am beginning to get really worried about him and the cess pit of his mind.

As someone who followed the JonBenet Ramsey case for years, I can say quite categorically that this photo of Madeleine bears NO resemblance to JonBenet's pageant photographs. There has been a lot of criticism of JonBenet Ramsey's "sexualised" images but for the precise reason that they were NOT simply a child playing dress up, but of a child who had sexy adult outfits tailored made to fit her, her hair professionally coiffed into swept up-dos and her make-up professionally done - foundation, eyelashes, professionally applied lipstick in the same way as a professional glamour model shot. It was the difference between the concept of a little girl playing dress up and the professional glamour modelling of JonBenet Ramsey which offended. One critic of JonBenet was her former pageant coach who claimed not to have coached JonBenet to do the provocative posing and pouting which she subsequently was caught doing on camera.

I have seen no photos of JonBenet Ramsey with a clumsy smudge of bright blue eyeshadow on each eye, a lopsided daub of lippy on her mouth and a string of tacky beads round her neck. JonBenet's eyeshadow was always professionally blended, her lips carefully outlined and her jewellery consisted of dangling earrings, custom made chokers to match her customised high-heeled shoes and head-dresses. JonBenet was more "folie-bergeres" than "nursery school dressing-up chest".

This is quite pathetic.

Me too Sabot, a healthy mind would see it for what it is, a little girl playing dress up.

Who in their right mind would take this photo and scrutinse it in so much detail. This is really quite sinister, I hope Bennett does take this issue up with Jim Gamble, I think Gamble has quite a good insight into peoples minds.

I just wonder at him describing bright blue eyeshadow, plastic beads and a daub of lipstick as "provocative".

And another letter to Mr. Gamble tomorrow. That might be interesting. Hasn't he already suggested that Mr. Gamble is a paedophile? Or was that someone else?

They all seem to be mightily interested in paedophilia. They pounce at the merest suggestion, and often with no suggestion at all. Methinks they do protest too much. Nasty, fetid brains.

Oh Lord! tb strikes again!
Sorry, couldn't even read his crap after the first line.
I would die of boredom if I did.
WHO the hell does he think he is??
For your information bennett, I and all my friends as kids, raided our mums make up bags, high heel shoes, and played with our dolls and pretended to be 'Mummies and Daddies'...
Oh dear, I'd better get myself checked out. I and my friends mustn't be normal! All these years later, a man called tony bennett, tells me that wearing make up and beads as a kid is abnormal.
WE also played hopscotch as well....Mmmm....I'm now starting to wonder what that could mean????
We also rode on bikes with boys peddling at the front! OMG...
The mind boggles as to what and how tb can interpret this!
