You can spin your involvement any way you wish, but spin won't save your house of cards when it comes a tumblin' down. And it won't be much that brings it down will it lads? Any little scrap of information that comes out, any scrap showing that any one of you had knowledge of what was really going down and you're fucked.
You've really worked yourselves into a corner haven't you? deny deny deny, you have no choice in the matter, you certainly crossed the Rubicon when you aligned yourself with this pair. And what a pair to have everything resting on, Kate and Gerry McCann, not the most stable couple you could wish for you must admit.
I don't know exactly when I created the graphic below, but it was early on, perhaps I should have featured you fellows as well. Because let's face it, it applies just as equally to you as it does him.
Well lads, I've just one more post to make and then I'm calling it all a day, I will leave you to carry on with your denials and your cover up. One day perhaps, you'll get yours. Heaven knows you've earned it.
WikiLeaks cable reveals British police helped Portuguese create Maddy cover-up allegation

DECEMBER 14, 2010
Although Portuguese police were always blamed by Kate and Gerry McCann for suggesting they were somehow involved in a cover-up over the disappearance of their daughter, Madeleine McCann, it now transpires that British police helped their opposite numbers on the Algarve build the case against the couple.
In the months following Madeleine's disappearance in May 2007, the Portuguese police were branded "imbeciles" by furious relatives of the McCanns, who later threatened to take legal action against the force after they were cleared.
The revelation that police in Britain "developed the evidence" that led to the McCanns being treated as formal suspect – or arguidos - comes with the latest leak of US embassy cables by WikiLeaks.
A cable detailing a meeting between the British ambassador to Lisbon, Alexander Wykeham Ellis, and US ambassador Al Hoffman, two weeks after the couple were declared arguidos in September 2007, is published today by the Guardian.
"Without delving into the details of the case, Ellis admitted that the British police had developed the current evidence against the McCann parents, and he stressed that authorities from both countries were working cooperatively," Hoffman said in the confidential report back to Washington.
Ellis also urged Hoffman to keep any comments regarding the case "behind closed doors".
The cable sheds new light on the fraught months following the disappearance of Madeleine from a holiday apartment in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz.
At the time, the McCanns claimed that Portuguese police were turning their focus on them to protect the region's tourism and deflect attention away from their failure to find the three-year-old.
The couple were monitored and questioned by investigators, who believed that they had discovered sufficient forensic evidence to suggest that Maddy had died in their apartment, before being stowed away in a hire car.
The case against the parents was finally dropped in July 2008 and their daughter's disappearance remains a mystery.
A spokesman for the McCanns played down the significance of the WikiLeaks revelations, telling the Guardian: "This is an entirely historic note that is more than three years old... Subsequently, Kate and Gerry had their arguido status lifted, with the Portuguese authorities making it perfectly clear that there was absolutely no evidence to implicate them in Madeleine's disappearance whatsoever."
Dozens of British police officers and forensic specialists were drafted in after Maddy's disappearance, but it is still not clear exactly what role they played.
A spokesman for the Leicester police, in the McCanns' home county, told the Guardian they simply coordinated the Portuguese investigation on a local level. First Post
WikiLeaks has drilled through the USA's security system and has been publishing thousands of documents. One of them tells us what we already knew. The English ambassador reported that the English police had obtained evidence that Maddie's parents were involved in the death and disappearance of their daughter and that, for State reasons, that fact had been simply hidden from the Portuguese Justice.
The couple's spokesman did not deny it. He merely stated that this issue was history. It didn't matter. When one is protected, such arrogance is permitted. Nonetheless, it is also true that protection by the powerful serves the powerful but will never be able to hide the truth, which, as we all know, always surfaces
Maybe there is another WikiLeaks cable that informs us about the dirt concerning this subject, that we still have to learn. Dirt: Francisco Moita Flores
