Kate McCann recently declared that she believes her daughter was never taken far from the Praia de Luz resort where their family vacationed in 2007. However, a recent post on The Daily Mail shows that some people just aren’t buying the mother’s display of grief.

The notorious Katie Hopkins recently penned an article on The Daily Mail expressing her concern with the details surrounding the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. In fact, she’s expressing the same concern that numerous people have declared about the parents of the missing child. The biggest point of scrutiny toward Kate and Gerry McCann, is the fact that the duo left the 3-year-old girl alone with her two infant siblings while they enjoyed time with friends at a nearby eatery.

It’s been reported that the tapas bar was not in the line of view of the rental apartment where the kids were left unsupervised, meaning they could not visibly see whether or not anyone had entered the domicile. They wined and dined with their friends that night for several hours, claiming to authorities that they had checked on the kids frequently. Nonetheless, their daughter still went missing that night while nobody was around to see what actually happened. That is why Katie Hopkins says that Kate and Gerry do not deserve all of the funds that have been donated to them over the several years that Maddie has been missing. In fact, Hopkins goes a step further and has declared that Kate and Gerry McCann should own up to “their share of the blame” in Maddie’s disappearance.
