Parental stuff

I seldom cover serious things in my blog, not because I don't think about them but I prefer to offload the trivia from my brain on to here and leave the serious stuff behind for me to dwell on at length. But I keep thinking about the McCann case, well it's pretty impossible to ignore it.

I don't have children, just dogs, but I really don't think I would ever ever leave three children under four alone in a hotel room. I very much doubt if I would go out and leave my (hypothetical)children alone in their own home and that's a place that they would be used to, with their familiar things around them.

Steve Allen, the LBC presenter, said recently if it had been a single mum, living on an estate, overweight, unphotogenic and none too bright and she'd gone down the pub (but popping back at 30minute intervals to check on them), then she would have been hung out to dry.

And how come the Sunday papers are full of pictures of Kate McCann as a child? What on earth is the point of that? Why open up the family album?

As to their guilt or innocence, if it were me that had been charged with a crime that I had not committed and there were certain questions that the police wanted answered, then I think I would answer everything put to me. I would not refuse to answer anything.

I'm afraid I'm inclined to agree.
