And there is the twist!

Well I did say I thought there would be another twist and 'lo it has come to pass.
Police probing the alleged abduction of Shannon Matthews have arrested a woman in West Yorkshire on suspicion of perverting the course of justice. There are unconfirmed reports that the 32-year-old is Shannon's mother Karen but these are yet to be verified.
Let's see where this one goes next.

From the 'Express' website this morning:

"Last night it was reported that Shannon told her mother that she did not want to return home.

The youngster said she would rather live with her foster parents...."

Poor kid.

"Shannon’s father, Leon Rose, 39, says he also plans to fight for custody. The girl’s 10-year-old brother already lives with him."

Can't help wondering why he was given custody of the son, but not the daughter?

Meanwhile the McCann's go off to Brussels as the Portuguese police come to England.

Note the creepiness of the mother first shacking up with kiddie pr0n (allegedly) boy when he was 17. One wonders how long they had been, cough, courting before he moved in.

Rumours that the West York Police shouted '180' as they arrested Shannon's mum are denied.....

Excellent prediction, take a bow.

Ever considered a career in political forecasting?

Mum just been arrested.
Step dad in prison.
Step dad relatives on bail.
Uncle in hospital.

What a family!

On a more serious note - it is possibly worth noting that on the day that the step-dad was arrested was also the day the government was warning about the evils of internet chat rooms.

A timely reminder that the vast majority of abuses occur within the family, and not via the internet.

Conversation between kids on Shannon's estate:

'I'm not Dwayne Smith anymore Tylana, I'm called Dwayne Pipe.

'Oh, have you got a new Dad?'

'Yeah, it's that twat Gareth Pipe.'

'Oh, bloody hell: we've had him he were fuckin' rubbish
