Latest news on the book release is that it is to be delayed yet again because the initial release date clashed with the royal wedding. This is the only clash expected - the date. I have news for you - the world will not stop revolving on the 29th April... In the lives of people all round the world, everyday mundane things and special events will still go ahead on that day - they will not clash with the royal wedding. Only a true narcissist would take it personally.
Hmm, so we now know that Madeleine won't be found before what would have been her 8th birthday on 12th May. How unfortunate... they're so good at predicting when she won't be found, can they predict when she will? Fortune telling is not one of their known talents, maybe the book will surprise us.
Anyway, if the said book is to aid the search for their daughter, why is the release date not being brought forward instead of being postponed? I'm sick of saying it... time is off the essence in a missing child case. Everything should be now, now, now. Not then, then, then.
If the book is to aid the search to find their daughter, why don't the McCanns take full advantage of the royal wedding and grasp the fact that throngs of people from every nationality will be descending upon the capital on the 29th April? The day which should have seen the original release of the book. It could and would be the fastest circulated book in the UK in one day. The McCanns, their extended family and friends could finally and physically do something to help Madeleine by distributing books, posters, wristbands, travel packs... outside train stations, tube stations, even a nice spot outside Westminster Abbey. They could finally walk the streets to help their daughter.
Stop. This is Cuckoo Land and I'm wearing my rosey tinted specs, because although the McCanns have been "working very hard", this is not their thing - especially giving away something for free. The book will have a price, and despite being beneficial to Madeleine with a £0 price tag and 99% more readers, that won't add anything to their private limited company masquerading as a fund.
They say money is the root of all evil... but is it worth putting the search for a child on hold? I'm not so sure Madeleine will appreciate the delay.
