    Who's Sorry Now?

    This, is Shannon Matthews.



    Shannon was recently kidnapped, Madeline McCann-style. There was the customary, massive police search & she was found after 24 days. Significantly - there was a bit of a fuss over the fact that there was no 'Where's Maddie' sort of campaign going on & that this was attributed to the fact the girl was from a poor, working-class family.

    They were probably right - although I must point out that this lot have never done a day's work in their lives.

    This, is Shannon's mother, Karen, 37 (mother of 7 - 5 different dads) kissing her live-in boyfriend, Craig Meehan, 22, (descibed as Shannon's 'stepfather' - )



    The one on the left is the little girl's dad - muppets.



    We all felt sorry for the mother as she pleaded for the kidnapper to return her daughter safe on the news each night.



    Kids released what look like paper planes to promote the cause & such.



    It was all pretty lame really.

    Shannon was found with Craig's uncle, less than a mile from the family home.



    1994







    There were the usual scenes of joy when she was found. The uncle was remanded in custody & Shannon was taken into care to be questioned. She was not reunited with her mother who has since seen her only once, for a few seconds, through a two-way mirror.

    Then it all went pear-shaped.

    The boyfriend was nailed for possessing indecent images of children & is now remanded in custody for his 'protection'.



    Karen was furious & vowed to have nothing to do with him ever again.



    The unemployed turned out in force to scream abuse as he was led into court.





    Meet Shannon's aunt (good looks must run in the family) who has been arrested after suspicions were raised when she telephoned those in charge of the Madeline McCann fund asking for money to help search for Shannon




    Also in the photo is her grandmother - both have been chgarged with perverting the course of justice.

    After that, Karen gets arrested.





    Does all this seem strangely familiar to you?

    You're not going to believe this.



    The mother & the uncle planned to use the money they thought they would raise from a Madeline McCann-style fund & run away together & got the idea to stage the kidnapping after watching an episode of Shameless, the TV show

    After the news announces Frank has won 500,000 on the lottery the estate begin asking him for favours. Debbie doesn't believe it, and kidnaps Liam, holding him at ransom.

    Wiki
    Needless to say, this bunch of clowns are all bang to rights & in the nick (except the sister & granny, who are on bail) looking at God-knows how long.

    Anybody wanting a closer look at this this bizzare circus can find it here.

    BBC NEWS | England | West Yorkshire | Shannon mother remanded by court

    The sad thing to come out of all this is that all seven of the mother's kids have been taken into care.

    She'll never see them again.

    Good thread so far shitman, i followed the story at the time, i realised the girl had not been returned to live with her mother after a few days but i never followed the story any further. This is the first i have read about the pictures you mention that the boyfriend had. I can see this is going to be a sad tale.

    Cheers.

    That's not so sad. She should be kept away from them.
    Sad thing is, looks like the kids have absolutely no family worth a shit and will probably spend their entire childhood in the "system."

    I don't agree.

    She's just an idiot - hardly Myra Hindley. They would be better off with their mum.

    I wouldn't be surprised if these idiots pre-ordered the T-shirts.

    As I understood the drama he is the current BF and 'step father'/perv., the one on the left is the biological father...But hey it's all too British for me..

    Good post.

    That housing estate where they live is pretty rough. From the Daily Mail:-


    "Last night's charges came as neighbours who searched day and night for Shannon spoke of their fury at the accusation she was somehow involved.

    A close neighbour who did not want to be named said: "She won't last an hour if she comes back here.

    "I gave up work to search for Shannon. This is a hard and unforgiving estate and she'll be stomped on if she ever returns."
    Up to four police officers are guarding her empty home. There have been threats to attack it, while Matthews has received death threats since her arrest."

    One thing strikes me here. The police usually grill the piss out of family members in these situations to be sure they aren't involved in some way knowing that most of these cases are domestically related somehow. They've done that with the McCanns..

    I can't believe with this many people involved that it was so difficult for them to crack one of these nuts before now let alone while they were searching for this girl..
    Silent but deadly.....

    Luckily, not where I grew up, but in the last town I lived, for sure.

    Get her 7 kids from 7 different dads into care quickly.

    Then line the rest of the family up against a wall and.......

    Fucking scrotes are killing this country.

    Oh and BTW if any of the offspring show parental traits neuter them on the spot.

    A couple of bricks will do.

    I'm sure that's how they got to the point where they're breaking down the uncle's door.

    Very unfair, Gerbil. Who knows, he might have been right with his hunch that he'd spot her on daytime tv.

    Here's one for ya.. There's another unknown accomplice.. If both the girl and the uncle were hiding in those very large drawers under the bed, Then who closed them? They're huge! They couldn't close that easily especially from the inside?

    It doesn't appear that way though does it? As this entire case should have been brought out much sooner if they already knew the motive back when..

    Understanding the hypersensitive nature of the locals this will probably generate it's share of reds. But let's see if that world famous sense of humor kicks in or not anyway? As I think we should break down the ethnicity and family 'bush' of this awarding winning bunch of tossers and go for some real stereotypes and generalisations...

    First the mother- Guessing with the red hair and freckles, 7 children, 5 different fathers= Irish....I'm guessing she was going more for mix-n-match style points with her kids looks instead of one particular coordinated style for a life time..

    Brave Heart on the left with the clueless, dopey blank stare and rugged looking hairy face=Scottish

    Dopey 'stepfather', Bf/perv on the right, pasty complexion= classic Englander

    Sorry but I don't see any real Welsh characteristics here as they're all too tall and no real ginger hair so this time your not implicated...
