I wish to clarify that I am not Madeleine Setchell.
My maiden name is Richards.
Apparently, after I commented on kiwiblog the other day under my usual posting name which is simply ‘Madeleine’ a lot of people jumped to the conclusion that I must be the Madeleine in the story. Whilst there have been instances of David Benson-Pope lying about his staff doing things he in fact did involving me, I am not the Madeleine in the current instance of his fabrication.
It should have occurred to me to post as ‘Madeleine Flannagan’ in this instance as the leap is a rather obvious one to make – apologies for the confusion – its just that as a ‘Madeleine’, I am not used to being confused with other people, I have met very few Madeleine’s in my life so it simply did not occur to me.
