I can't prove the child was taken by a stranger, and I don't think (as far as I can remember) that I've ever said that's what happened. I've consistently said I don't know what happened though.
I'm curious as to why you think the burden of proof lies with me?
As to the other points - of course there are inconsistencies in versions of events. You're talking about people trying to recollect events which they were previously unaware would be of any significance to them. If you asked everyone who I'm working with today what happened from the start of our shift to the end of our shift, you'd get inconsistencies from one person to the other.
Ask them again in a month, and you'd get even more inconsistencies, and then ask them again three months down the line. Maybe emphasise how important it is that they get it right to throw in some stress, and the chances are the variances would be even greater.
With respect to the 30 children, I don't know the answers to the questions you posed to them, but I fail to see the relevance of them. For reference, the sources I used were the Sun online and the Huffington Post (they came up close to the top in the search results), I haven't qualified their sources but since we're quoting Youtube as a source for information I think that's fair enough.
I haven't said that the Portugese police were incompetent, just that the British police were when finding out what happened to Shannon Matthews.
As for the Team McCann, that probably came out more disrespectfully than intended, so I'll apologise for that. What I meant by it is that I don't think there's an army of people connected to the McCanns who are trawling the internet to attack people with different theories.
Surprisingly, there is very close evidence of people doing it the other way around though
Ironically, pulling out Hillsborough and the Birmingham Six as examples probably supports my theory rather than yours, they are high profile and very rare, and ultimately justice was done. If anything - these examples show that it would have been more likely for the police (either Portugese or British) to pin the case on the McCanns and fit the evidence to support that theory, thus closing the case whether they were guilty or not.
The facts are in the public domain, how they are presented makes a significant difference to how they are viewed and to what aspects of them are given significance.
I'm not seeing what I want to see, if I saw enough credible evidence to support that the McCanns were responsible to outweigh the evidence that says that they weren't, then I'd accept it.
The stuff that's been presented is nowhere close to that,though.
