Is it just me or does this whole Shannon Matthews abduction thing have a funny smell to it? We now have two further arrests, the mother of the step-father and another woman. The thing is, when they found Shannon it was just before I went off snowboarding. The only English paper we managed to find in Bulgaria was the News of the World that weekend and it carried a large interview and report on the news that she had been found.
Something that jumped out of the report was where Shannon's mother, upon coming out of the house after having seen her daughter, had a big grin on her face (understandable) and then alleged winked at her friend/family. That always seemed to me and my mate and really odd. When you add in the comments made during the search that not as much attention was being given to Shannon's disappearance as Madeline McCann because she was only working class, it all just seemed a bit weird.
Don't get me wrong here, I'm not making any direct allegations against anyone, I just wouldn't be surprised if over the next week there were not some more very bizarre twists to the case. I can't put my finger on it, but there's just a funny smell about the whole thing.
