Oi! Steady On Now Monsieur Moreas

....Having myself not able to cope with an armada of lawyers, I will not comment. But for us French, the process of opening a commercial site * The online store of Madeleine (Madeleine The Online Store) seems a bit strange. It is hard to imagine parents doing business selling search posters (£ 1.75 for 10), bracelets, or t-shirts bearing the face of their missing child (£ 7) ... This is not really in our culture.

This is probably different in Britain ...

Oi! steady on now Monsieur Moreas, just steady on now lad, a person could take exception if he were so inclined.

But being possessed of a gentle and forgiving nature, I won't be harsh with you, and don't we all employ a little rhetoric on occasion?
For I am sure that we would be in accord where I say, that from the time when the first organism crawled out of the primordial soup to where we stand today as a species, never, never in those many thousands of years, never in all those millennia, has the world witnessed anything that remotely compares to the grotesque, to the obscene, or to the shameless vulgarity that is epitomised by the Madeleine McCann online store.

The sale of good quality wristbands and other fine branded merchandise, transcends race, transcends cultures, transcends borders, transcends continents even, but the things that it transcends unreservedly and above all others, are, dignity, taste, decency and morality, to mention but a few. And this Monsieur you know well, how could it be otherwise?

The Madeleine McCann online shop; nothing comes anywhere near, does it? as grotesque as it is unbelievable, the McCann's "Madeleine has been abducted" mantra and story had a purpose born out of necessity, to keep them out of goal, but the Madeleine McCann online store, it's peerless, it's head and shoulders above the rest, it is without compare.

And so it stands, tall and proud this this ungodly edifice, this memorial that the McCanns have built to edify the memory of their departed daughter.

Madeleine didn't deserve many things that befell her during her short life, but she didn't deserve this. she never did anything to deserve a shop; poor kid.

And this unique piece of marketing, brought to you by NHS Doctors Gerald Patrick McCann, and Kate Marie McCann (née Healy)

Shameless all!
