    News24 reporting that the MCanns will make a statement at the airport on their return to the UK.

    I have been watching live coverage of their departure and journey to the airport since 7am UK time and no statement was made, they have checked in through a VIP entrance and are now waiting to board.

    Several journalists were able to get seats on the plane. apparently the computers were down in the airport but the plane was due to leave on time.

    Ooops, no, Justine Mc has just made a statement at the airport. Nothing of significance, McCanns had nothign to do with disappearance, returning to UK for sake of twins, with full agreement of PJ, etc etc

    It's a product of the McCann media machine... the BBC got their info about them going home, from a family source.

    Did anyone notice when the McCanns left Portugal (the place they swore they would never leave until Maddie was found), there was not a hint of upset, no tears, no looking back, no sadness to be leaving the place their daughter may still well be, dead or alive. Also why did such a close knit family not even arrive at the airport together in the same car?

    How annoyed I am, knowing how much money these two stand to make from their impending chat show appearances, media interviews, book deals etc….. I am in the UK and am not looking forward to seeing the McCann’s or a member of their family on TV every time I look at it or seeing their pre-planned stories in the newspapers day in day out.

    You just know that the interviewers & media in the UK are going to pussyfoot around the McCanns and not ask any searching questions like they were asked in Germany all those months ago.

    This has turned into a ‘poor McCanns’ circus, what about ‘poor Madeleine’ who is still missing due to their parents neglect.

    Err there's an important principle here of not prejudicing a trial. Given what's already been written over the last few weeks, IF they are charged, they are going to be able to make a good case for media coverage being prejudicial to a fair trial.

    I was under the impression they couldn't because they were "suspects." I would think if the PJ had any evidence of significance they wouldn't be allowing them to leave. If the PJ find more evidence against them or wish to interrogate them again or even arrest them, I assume they have to go back????

    If I were in a foreign country and my child was kidnapped, I just don't know if I could ever leave. I would feel like I was giving up on her, desserting her, leaving my baby ALONE in a foreign country. It would be tough!

    So often times it happens that we live our life in chains, and we never even know we have the key. ...Eagles, "Already Gone"

    Err so it's ok for the McCanns to talk to the media as and when they please, say what they please, make a daily blog for the whole world to access -it works both ways. If they are asked direct questions that they don't like then they just don't answer, right?
    IF there was to be a trial, it would be in Portugal wouldn't it, so how can talking to the media in the UK prejudice the trial, or am I wrong?

    I personally believe the PJ have allowed them back home for a few days to settle the twins into their new home whilst Mama and Papa face Justice - I think the PJ have done this on compassionate grounds, I think they know they will face charges this week...

    Their hire car has been taken back to their villa which maybe might indicate that they will be returning there...

    An representative from an Anglo/Portuguese law firm was speaking on BBCNews24 and made it clear that if they continue to talk through the press that it could be damaging to them and the 'conditions' of their Arguido status could be changed - I really dont think we'll see Fiona Phillips or Richard & Judy fornicating with them...

    I personally believe they will be back in Portugal before the weeks is out...
