I have kept quite for some time but after what I have read I will not.
First of all let me make one thing clear. I do hope and wish Madeleine to be found as soon as possible and in good health. That done I will go on.
He father said in berlin that they are responsible parents and they were checking very very regularly while they were dining close by.
Lets check the FACTS.
- They left two 2 year olds and a 4 year old alone
- From their initial statement their ��check�� interval was 30 minutes
For crying out loud that is not responsible, its totally but totally irresponsible and as far as I know if I do something similar with my 9 year old daughter here and somebody reports me to the social services I will find myself in court fighting for the custody of my child.
So all the media bandwagon that we all seen around us says one thing. If you are ��well off�� or you are in the ��middle class�� like they are and God forbid you act irresponsible and suffer from it we all promote your case, the church will arrange for you to visit the Pope, you will be ��celebrities�� (not meant in a bad way) to assit yoru cause but nobody will say that you have done something wrong. On the other hand if you are unlucky to be a ��nobody��, you are a responsible parent and your child disappears then a poster in the local police station and a small report in the media for a few days is what you get. Well done british media.
My personal opinion regardless to anything. They have been irresponsible parents and they got what they deserved, fullstop. For no reason you do not leave one kid which is two years old alone for even a minute. They left two 2 year olds and a 4 year old alone to have their dinner near by�.. and they were checking on them every 30 minutes�.
If that shows responsibility then I am sorry but we do not talk the same language.
Last thing, from the first time I heard the story something was ��fishy�� for me, something did not fit in the whole story. Only time will tell what is the real story, I only hope the child is not hurt in any way and it is alive and well.
