Putting the boot into the McCanns: Booker Prize Winner Anne Enright

London - (Worthier-Than-Thou Mess): Headline-grabbing brinksmanship has been irrevocably redefined today after Booker Prize winner Anne Enright claimed she was probably the world's first published author to dislike the parents of Madeleine McCann.

Basking in the glow of winning the £50,000 Mann Booker Prize for Fiction last night, 45 year-old Irish author Anne Enright said her tome The Gathering has been described as a "powerful, uncomfortable and angry unflinching look at a grieving family."

"And what's more I suspected those McCanns way before anybody else," Enright said, "even when it was totally unfashionable to call out their humbug."

Enright dismissed Kate and Gerry McCann for peddling their own fictionalised account of family life in a 2,000 word anaylsis for the London Review of Books published two weeks ago.

Her opinion of Kate McCann as narcissistic is topped only by her assessment that husband Gerry "is aptly named because that what the Brits used to call the enemy during World War II days."

"Either way, I doubt I'll now ever be asked to sit as a juror if the case gets to court," Enright laughed.
