Saint Gerry McCann and Saint Katie McCann have asked British leader Gordon Brown to put a billion pounds of government money into the search for their missing daughter, Madeleine.
The Saints said they want the Prime Minister to divert cash intended for hospitals and care for cancer and AIDS patients to a new global strategy for finding their daughter.
"As British citizens, it is the government's duty to help us. We're talking about a little child here. That's far more important than the NHS," said St Gerry.
So far, members of the public and billionaire businessman Sir Richard Branson have donated sums totalling in the millions to the McCann's Find Maddy fund. But the heroic couple, who left their three children aged under 5 in a villa in Portugal while they went to have dinner, say this isn't enough and want Mr Brown to promise them money.
St Gerry and his wife have been quite busy the last few months. They had an audience with the Pope, and St Gerry appeared at the Edinburgh Television Festival in August. Next week, the brave and courageous couple will fly to Washington to meet President Bush, members of Congress, Oprah Winfrey and the CEO of McDonald's.
Channel 4 has asked the legendary couple to deliver their annual Alternative Christmas Message. But the Saints had to decline the offer as they will be in the Seychelles on that day in their global search for Maddy.
