open letter to the board re: Esther Mcvey

There was a thread on the titanic, sorry mean the mf with regards to Esther mcvey standing down from the find maddie fund, has she actually issued a statement yet stating why? I know we had the usual carp from clarrie but wondered if Esther could answer this one herself yet?

Not heard or seen anything from Esther as yet - and many of us would like to know the 'whys', 'hows' and 'whens' of this grubby saga.

I'm amazed that a woman of her supposed intelligence didn't bail out a lot quicker ...

Thanks Crone, wondered if maybe I had missed a statement from her because the silence on her part speaks volumes to me. Can you remember who asked this original question back on mf?

We'll never hear anything from her on this subject. If she has her way her time with the Fund will be carefully airbrushed from history

That's a good point.

It's to her credit that she got out when she did, as, no matter what, the fund has become inappropriate.

I think something must be up. surely you wouldnt leave a "charity" run for the missing child of one of your oldest friends without good reason. even if she had stepped down to be just a board member I could understand that. but to leave totally makes me wonder that she is not happy with how the fund is run. I didnt buy her leaving to "spend more time with her family" or as she said her masters course etc...

My thoughts too. I found it telling that she stood down at a time when things were getting rather uncomfortable for the McCanns. Surely if personal commitments were the reason, a bigger show of support - as a longtime friend - would have been to take a backseat role in the fund but remain in post, rather than public appearing to be jumping from the sinking ship.

Perhaps Ms. McVey like a lot of people started to have great doubts. She must have seen where the money was going, and questioned it? Metodo 3 for example, she may have started to wonder why hire them when they seem rather inept and also what the very high payments to them were really about.

If she now has great doubts about their total innocence, she may have already expressed that to the relevant authorities but we are not privilege to that information.

I am not saying her reasons for being a part of the fund were totally altruistic, but I am not going to judge her too harshly yet.

Good to see this issue has been re-ignited. Big, big thanks to OP.

However, I'm already starting to see some posts on here, a bit like last time shall we say??? Odd that.

Nice one Unclemonty - the joke is especially not lost on me - as that message was directed at me personally. Funny though, never did change my mind about Ms McVeigh, and after the report about her recent shenanigans (posted kindly by Shubob shortly before MF site went down???) I certainly do not admire this woman.

Let's face it - she's was the media face/ spokesperson of a fund asking the public for kind donations. Public money = Responsibility and accountability Esther. You have shown neither by resigning with no explanation, in effect leaving out the back door on a good day for burying the bad stuff.

Wonder if she'll be at the twins birthday party???

Shubob - where are you? We're back on McVeigh watch.

Love to see some MORE trusty old threads reappear that went down on 'Mirror Forum Black-out' Day. Make's one feel at home, especially knowing that it'll get certain backs up.

Big regards JT
