Yes, Supermosh you sound like someone who works for a local authority social work department. Very judgemental about everything and anything. The fact is a four year old child is missing and it has drawn a lot of sympathy and awareness from the public. This thread was started to see if the brass band movement could do anything to help support the situation not a debate on child welfare. We appreciate your expertise. I also work in a Childrens Directorate but this is surely not the place and time to debate this issue. Very offensive and upsetting to people who have a lot of sympathy with the MacCann's.
Whatever, this is NOT for discussion here!!!
Because the foreign police force aren't as good as our domestic police. The MacCann family are having to do more, like paying experts, psychologists etc etc. I agree with what you're saying though, i asked that question to one of my friends the other day who keeps very up-to-date with the news. But it sounds like the money is essential, especially as the Portugese police don't seem to be getting anywhere.
i think compassion and empathy are what she needs now.
