Memories of a Dingo

I will forebear to recount the tasteless car joke texted me by a friend (it involves a play on words to do with a particular model of Renault) and instead note that the McCann tragedy bears comparison with the famous Australian dingo baby case more than twenty years ago. Online paper "The First Post" carries an article recalling the earlier incident, and commenting on the comparisons.

In fact Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton has even come out in the news recently backing the McCanns.

Do they have dingoes in Portugal?

I notice that the Chamberlain parallel has now been picked up by the Mail, and again by the Mail on Sunday. Better late than never, and it filled a few useful pages of Maddie analysis!
