Portugal - (Ass Mess): A pair of British doctors who left their three year old daughter and two younger twin siblings alone in a hotel room while they went out to dinner have been labelled 'completely bonkers' by police and social services who are investigating the little girl's abduction from her bedroom.
"If this was a single mum on social security benefits she'd be behind bars right now," said a British consular official near the Portuguese holiday resort where the family was staying.
"You'd think that a pair of educated professionals such as this would have their heads screwed on properly," said another source commenting on the couple's insistence that they went back to check on the kids every 30 minutes in between enjoying their dinner at a tapas bar some 50 yards away fro the hotel.
"They've made a big deal about their televised prayers at church today," said a manager at the resort hotel, "but the only ones they are praying for is themselves, that they don't end up in jail with their two other little kids permanently in care after their totally selfish cavalier behavior."
The British doctors, Kate and Gerry McCann, are from Leicestershire and were holidaying at a Mark Warner resort with their three little tots, no nanny and no childminder.
Police have yet to disclose just how many times the McCanns went out to dinner leaving the children alone before little three year old Madeleine was abducted on Friday night.
"It beggars belief that these are not your average retard proletariats on the dole type of couple but responsible and educated professionals!"
The search for little Maddy McCann continues.
