crimewatch was embargoed. The smith interview is old but it was clear he didn't get a good view of the suspect's face

it was Peter Smith who I spoke to, who was in the group. That wasn't his take on it.

That's right, M. Smith, Peter's father was the one who stated that. Strangely suppressed since it seems he was one of the

I was so comical to think it was gerry for several reasons.

1. The description of the smiths didn't match Gerry. They described a tall skinny dark skinned nan, Gerry is stocky, average height and pale.

2. All but one or two of the smiths stated it definitely was not Gerry

3. Staff at the resort place Gerry on site at the time of the smiths sighting.

4. The mother of a friend of one of the McCann's friends i.e a woman they hardly knew before the holiday placed Gerry on site at the time.

5. The friends of the McCann's friends i.e people they barely knew before the holiday placed Gerry on site at the time.

6. The McCann's friends placed Gerry on site at the time

7. The Smith who said it could have been Gerry didn't say this until after another man he was friendly with was arrested and the police had started saying the McCann's could be guilty. Before this despite seeing Gerry McCann on TV and in the papers several times he never mentioned it.

8. The reason he thought it could be Gerry was comical to be frank. He said when he watched TV and saw stocky pale Gerry McCann walking down aeroplane steps in broad daylight at a fair distance from the camera it was like seeing a video replay of a swarthy, skinny man walking right by him in a dark level street. Exactly what was similar, the way they carried a child. Yes that right Gerry McCann carried a child down aeroplane steps in the exact same way all adults carry children down aeroplane steps. There isn't exactly a lot of ways to carry a child down aeroplane steps.

9. He's now recanted as far as I am aware and admits he doesn't think it was Gerry.

The Smith family could knock on the idiot trolls doors and tell them it wasn’t Gerry....and they still wouldn’t believe it.

The proof of that is that after initially refusing to do so, he agreed to produce an efit.

As Mel once memorably put it, you would no more produce an efit of someone you thought was Gerry than you would someone you thought was The Queen.

The Queen, not quite as well known as Gerry, obviously.

But apart from that, I thought it was a very good analogy.
