Not detracting from this tragic story and I hope against hope that she is found safe. We had a chat at lunch today. I threw in a comment that her parenst were white middle class professional medics and the sympathy vote. If they were fat, smoking, drinking, unemployed from Chavsville, Arizona would their be public sympathy ? The bottom line is they left 3 wee ones unattended to go for a spot of supper. Forgetting the abduction, the risk of coughing, choking, an accident, playing with matches et al is v scary. All of us have taken the wee ones on holiday and had to come back and spend the evening on the balcony whilst the childer are in bed. If they were working class and had been in "The Rose & Crown" quoffing 3 cocktails & Stella the Redtop press would have hung them out to dry. NOTW & the Scum "Evil Parents abandon kids in favour of Pina Colada's" I don't think that Gary & Trisha from Essex/Wirral/Chatham would of got an audience with the pope and this global publicity. I do feel sorry for them but am surprised that no-one has criticised them. Working class folk who have left kids home alone to go to the Med have been jailed. As a dad of 2 wee ones I would not think of leaving them in the accomodation. My two are 6 & 10 and are never more than 8 metres from me on holiday. It beggars belief that two parents could enjoy supper with no one minding the childer. As Dr's and part of a caring profession it is even worse. What do you guys think ? Is there duplicity in the way the media has handled them. Should they be charged / interviewed ??
