Leaving aside his now former position itís just such a sleazy situation - heís a bit younger than me but I genuinely canít imagine any of my mates claiming he had access to a string of teenaged girls and we could all join in; most of my friends have grandchildren around that age and would find the suggestion quite abhorrent.

The interview he gave with unbelievable and made everything so much worse. People talk a lot about 'privilege' nowadays, but royals are so many magnitudes of privilege beyond us all that he literally thought he could reel off various complete absurdities and we'd all just lap it up as fact. It shows how entirely unquestioned in both his words and behaviour he's been throughout his whole life. He's have been better off saying nothing.

I guess you don't have friends who are taxi drivers or work in takeaways and live in the north of England.

Allegedly, he 'met up' with the girl in London, NY and Florida. I believe the age of consent in the those US states is 18. It varies from state to state in the US.

That's what I assumed.

So by our British standards, he didn't sleep with an underage girl.

What I'm not clear on is why a girl who met up with him three times in three different locations is now complaining about it.

I suspect it could have something to do with money.

Doubtless, she's a very highly principled woman who will settle out of court for a small (undisclosed) fortune!

One might wonder what his old uni mate Ghislaine says to save her own arse. Could this be just one of a number of civil cases Randy Andy faces in the future?

Will Andrew continue to have 24hr police protection I wonder? Protecting the Royal Family is estimated to cost around £125m. That's a lot of Bobbies on the beat.

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

If he isn't doing official duties then no.

My take is that Andrew almost certainly engaged with the girl. His ludicrous interview last year (or before) was a big mistake. He has burnt his privileged position for life and therefore would be best advised to settle. He hasn't got a bottomless pit of cash to defend himself with and the Royals have cast him out.
However, I could see her treading on very thin ice. She clearly was involved in recruiting underaged girls and it could be argued was grooming Andrew. I would have thought a really good US lawyer could convince a jury of this. Especially if the sexes were reversed.
All hypothetical I know, bu I do think the world is heading in the wrong direction with this and many other topical items.

Think I prefer to stick to the Palace.

Crystal Palace that is!!

I agree with you Dream..... - did he - almost certainly - did he think he was committing an offence - probably not.
Whatever else the man might be I really do not think that he is that kind of individual - just arrogant, misguided and thick!
His big mistakes were being involved with Epstein and Maxwell, not seeing this young Woman for what she was and then granting the interview and behaving the way he did having done so.
