Sad story in the paper about a 3-year-old girl left at Southern Cross train station. But the cops have a lot to answer for for nicknaming her ‘Pumpkin’. What would have happened if our northern neighbours had done the same thing with Madeline McCann? Imagine – David Beckham’s heartfelt plea; ‘Pwease help find liddle Pumpkin’, the headlines; ‘Pumpkin missing in Portugal’, ‘Parents suspected of killing Pumpkin’, the advertisements; ‘Reward for finding Pumpkin’. I reckon that nickname will stick with her for the rest of her life. As if being left at the station wasn’t enough. Fortunately with Melbourne’s public transport she was never going to make it too far.
