The Next Time The Metropolitan Police Hold Out The Begging Bowl For ‘More Resources’…

…feel free to remind them about this.

A total of £11.75m has been spent on Operation Grange to date. The new funding is for the six-month period until 31 March next year.

Detectives have been applying to the Home Office every six months for a grant to continue their work.

Why don’t they ask for some dosh to go after Lord Lucan too? Is it because they can’t convince anyone he’s in Portugal?

    How much are they spending to try to find Ben Needham? Or is it that poor little Ben didn’t have loud-mouthed and demanding doctors for parents so they haven’t even bothered?

    Someone should give these “detectives” this link

    or buy them the complete set of Richard D Hall’s videos – would cost a lot less than however many gazillion pounds have been thrown at this “investigation”. IMHO.

    I’ll throw ‘if it were your child wouldn’t you want them to keep looking?’ and follow that up with junior wandering off one afternoon. He went around the corner and we both near fell apart with worry until the dog ambled off to find him.

    There is much the police do wrong and maybe trying to find a lost little girl whose parents were negligent is one of them, but it’s pretty low on the list of wasted money.

      Well yes, especially if I’d – allegedly – drugged my child so she slept, but overdosed her.

      Kate’s first words revealed a lot iirc something like “She couldn’t have walked out” despite door not being locked.

      The circumstances of your child and their’s couldn’t be more different.
