Zoe Williams in the Guardian has her suspicions about the Posh Spice kidnap story. I concur - why would dedicated kidnappers want to kidnap one of the highest profile women in the UK when they could have gone for someone rich but unknown, like Roy Keane's wife for example? Surely keeping the profile of the victim at a minimum would ensure less chance of a media circus occuring and would facililate the chances of a ransom actually being paid. Also, wasn't it interesting that the story was broken by a News of the World undercover reporter who happened to infiltrate the gang and who with impecable timing broke the story just in time for the 6:00 news on Saturday evening, thus ensuring maximum exposure for his 'scoop' in Sunday morning's edition of the paper?
