Call For Ban As Children Strangled By Blinds
Harrison Joyce, three, from Lichfield was strangled by a long looped cord on February 4.
Five days later 16-month-old Lillian Bagnall-Lambe died in an almost identical incident in Stafford.
South Staffordshire coroner Andrew Haigh said: "I am saddened to have these two deaths reported to me.
"In due course I will be holding full inquests into the deaths but I feel it is appropriate at this time that parents of young children are reminded of the potential danger of blind cords."Source

Why do you say that?
Do you have any real experience with Portuguese police or is it just a prejudice?
Which you think happened in this case.

which happened in this case.
Several years ago, Denis and Greg Mackie went to live in Portugal. On 8th May 2007, immediately following Madeleine McCann`s disappearance, Anne Greig, accompanied by a victim`s support witness, went to her now local police station in Shrewsbury to tell them to alert the Portuguese Police, as despite the proven case of paedophile abuse, neither of the Mackies had a record of any kind.
The McCann team has accepted that the Mackies ought to have been questioned immediately. It is now understood that the British Police failed to pass on these details to their Portuguese counterparts.
Hence, the official cover up has even extended to detracting from the Madeleine McCann investigation.
