Very rarely does a psychic make me want to throw up my dinner in disgust........ ok quite often they make me want to throw up my dinner in disgust, but this time it is even worse.
Many of you will have seen in the news the story of Madeleine McCann, the young "photogenic" child that has gone missing in Praia da Luz in Portugal.
Well the they still haven't found the poor child, but guess what, two of the UK's most incredulous 'psychics' have apparently flow to Portugal to join in the hunt for Madeleine.
Amanda Hart from St Albans and Ben Murphy from Watford are the two psychics in question who believe they can help, of course self promotion doesn't come into it.
Well it does actually, these two non-entities in the psychic world have stooped lower than I thought possible.
This is the kind of sick stunt I would expect from Sylvia Brown.
These two 'psychics' through a PR agency, released the press release about them travelling to Portugal.
Amanda Hart you may remember as being one of the failures on Channel 5's Psychic Challenge program, in fact she was so bad it was laughable.
You can check out exactly how poorly she did at John Jacksons excellent site
As for Ben Murphy, he is not much better, his claim to fame is that he helped in tracking down the murderer of teenager Sally Anne Bowman, the truth is he did nothing of the sort.
You can see what Ben Murphy said at this link
Forum member Meercat took a look at his claims regarding this case.
Here is what he had to say:
The information he gives is so vague.
Sally first showed me how a man grabbed her from behind.
He could have said "Did a little jig". It's irrelevant.
He was wearing gloves and a hooded top, but his face was blanked out.
Cant say for certain at this time what the offender was wearing at the time of the attack, although a hoody and gloves seems to be standard issue for murderers theses days.
He had stabbed her quite a few times
As was reported before he made his comments.
She then showed me a handbag with some writing on the side and also some of the things from her bag - a phone, some keys.
It was reported that her white Prada bag was missing. I think its safe to assume a teenage girl out on the town would have in her bag a phone and keys.
Sally Anne then showed a man in his bedroom taking a clear bag containing a few of her personal items out of a wardrobe.
Again, at this point its not known if the offender had a bag like this in his wardrobe.
From the bedroom she showed me a park. In the park she showed me a small hill where there was a tree and a man kneeling down at the tree.
"She said that these items are buried here and the man comes back to look at them.
Why the hell doesnt he go and find them then?
I was also given the name Justin while in meditation.
Must have been Timberlake then as the man arrested for her murder is Mark Dixie.
I feel sorry for the mother to be in such a state of grief that she actually grasped at the 'help' this fake came up with.
If he had said "The murderer is a 34 year old chef who will be arrested on DNA evidence following a fight in a pub" I would have been impressed.
The Police and Forensic Science solve cases, 'Mediums' don't.

These psychics are no more than parasites, and what makes it worse is that they are not the only ones.
It has been reported that the police and media groups are currently being deluged by psychics making offers to help, although the police are not taking these offers seriously.
So far it seems to be only Amanda and Ben who have flown over to "start their own investigation"
I really don't know what to say about these two psychics.
These people are the lowest of the low, the sickest of the sick, truly fame hungry parasites.
If Hell exists then it will have a seperate wing just for psychics like this.
