    Basically hiding behind layers of security so he can’t be served by the legal team launching the civil action taking place in New York. Just attempting to get off on a technicality. Nice.

    He really believes the law is for little people like us I suppose?

    Not guilty? Ok, have your say, but don’t hide behind the outdated institution of monarchy.

    If he’s found guilty in his absence he won’t be jetting round the world anymore that’s for sure.👍

    Is that why the Royals need a new yacht? So he can always be surround with his people when travelling? No need to come into contact with anyone with official powers to detain?

    Not sure why this is a civil case, maybe a jurisdiction thing? If he’s going to court I’d rather it was full on criminal, no doubt then.

    He’s probably guilty as hell but a civil case seems a bit money grabbing.

    Having just walked around the perimeter of his house, they won’t be just walking up and knocking on the door nor will he be walking out. Always leaves in a black Range Rover under escort. Multiple routes out of the park too. Fun fact, photographers can’t take pictures in the great park. But they do sit at bishopgate and point some very expensive glass right down his drive whilst perched on stepladders. That’s why the photos always look so compressed and he’s in the back. Needless to say they don’t tend to drive out that way.

    Well, he’s ****ed whatever he does. If he wants to live the rest of his life avoiding summons, that’s a self-imposed life sentence. He can’t travel abroad and attending any public events will bring the risk of a summons being served. Nobody will want to be seen with him in public and most public figures won’t want to even risk socializing in private, so he has to live the rest of his life in hiding.

    Or he can go to court and sit and listen to allegations. His lawyers will probably tell him to refuse to testify, which will be seen as an admission of guilt. If he agrees to testify, it will probably be worse, he’ll be destroyed on the stand.

    I recall an ex forces colleague who used to do guard duty at the palace, reckoned Andrew used to pop in and out of the palace constantly with a stream of young ladies riding pillion.

    I’ll be honest and say as a daft 19 year old boy it was quite a cool story, er, not so much now.

    Am I correct in thinking that in the US trials can be televised?

    If so there will be undoubtedly big broadcasters vying for the broadcast rights and any trial is going to be very, very public indeed.

    Also when his lying is as overt as;

    “ Speaking to the BBC about Ms Giuffre’s allegations in 2019, Prince Andrew said they “never happened”.
    “It didn’t happen. I can absolutely categorically tell you it never happened. I have no recollection of ever meeting this lady, none whatsoever,” he told BBC Newsnight.”

    When the article leads with a photo of him and the lady he refers too!

    What an odious little s***

    It’s all weird, can see either side, should he be doing more for the investigation for/in the US, but counter to that, civil claims are there for money, it’s a hard one to fight, or come out looking positive.

    Reality is that i haven’t seen the US doing any more since Epstein’s death, no real new players, or convictions, this one with Prince Andrew just goes on and on, and again is a weird one, you could tell by his interview he isn’t even close to being truthful, and is a horrific witness for himself, i doubt any civil trial will have more than hearsay or he said/she said, so can’t see him convincing a jury, even with a lack of real evidence!

    He certainly won’t be going to the US again as there’s a case against him in manhatten? I think.

    I still think we should do a trade… Extradition for randy Andy in return for that US diplomats wife who killed that kid by driving on the wrong side of the road and claimed diplomatic immunity.

    Apparently he has been saying that he will be back in ‘public service’ next year for the Jubilee as it will all blow over. As has been said in the more serious media, he seems to have been very poorly advised from the very beginning and is not the sharpest tool in quite a blunt boxful.

    The Queen’s implicit in this nonsense. She should be telling him to get out there and face the music and distance herself from him. But she’s not and that speaks volumes. She can’t make out she’s moral and upstanding monarch after hiding him. They’re all hoping it’ll all blow over and I bet there’s been some phone calls made to some very important people.
    Which is better.. Hide away eternally and never face charges or face charges in a public court with bugger all chance of jail time?
    Makes me incandescent with rage and it absolutely **** stinks. Never more soythan the fact that it’s all just because of some tawdry sweaty fumble. Who would jeopardise their whole public life and that of your family just for an orgasm?! Just take 5 mins, go and sort yourself out upstairs and then get on with your life. It’s so base and vile.

    So assuming it is true, and she did have sex with him in London when she was 17, what then?

    Ignore everything else and look at this case only. Is there a case?

    Not excusing anything but factually it’s not illegal so long as it was consensual.

    Agree he’s not helping himself even if he is trying (badly) to twist the truth by saying “it [sex] didn’t happen”. FWIW does anyone here remember every single person they’ve ever been photographed with? Legitimate defence.

    I have no doubt he’s been doing plenty with young women, whether it was illegal or not in the places it happened is another matter.

    I still think we should do a trade… Extradition for randy Andy in return for that US diplomats wife who killed that kid by driving on the wrong side of the road and claimed diplomatic immunity.

    Sounds good to me.

    He claimed publicly he would co operate with the criminal investigation, but then refused. He’s now refusing to co operate with a civil investigation too.

    The French had the right idea IMO…

    Even if the person was trafficked? Interesting interpretation – guessing you’re not a lawyer.

    Seems like he can’t take the stand not so much because of innocence or guilt but because he’d inevitably perjure himself just because of his basic disconnection from the truth. The Trump Defence. You wouldn’t even need to question him, just put him in court and let him freeform jazz his way to prison.

    I’m not a royalist by any means and I’m not passing judgement as I/ we the plebs don’t know the full story.
    I’m not sure if this correct or not, she was 17 years old when the alleged happened in the UK- legal age of consent in the UK is 16 years old.
    The whole story reeks of making money on all sides, her lawyers etc.

    We only know what we’re told by the media…which at the best of times is all booolacks.

    That would clearly fall outside of consent. At least you did me the service of quoting everything I said so we can see you ignored my caveat.

    Was that what actually happened though? Since no criminal case has been presented all we have is speculation.

    Premier Icon grum

    Not sure what became of this or what the evidence was but I don’t think you can claim it’s just speculation.

    Disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein continued to sexually abuse and traffic young women and girls to his private island as recently as 2018, with potentially hundreds of previously unknown victims, a new lawsuit alleges.

    The lawsuit, filed by the attorney general of the US Virgin Islands, cites new evidence that Epstein used a computerized database to track women and girls – some as young as 11 – to Little Saint James island, a private estate Epstein purchased in 2016. According to the lawsuit, one girl attempted an escape by swimming, but was later found and had her passport confiscated.

    According to Wednesday’s complaint, Epstein and his alleged accomplices “trafficked, raped, sexually assaulted and held captive underage girls and young women” at his Virgin Islands properties.

    If you’re going to claim it’s ok for Prince Andrew to be having sex with girls in this situation just because they are over the legal age of consent, then, well…. we have very different sets of morals.

    I’m not sure if this correct or not, she was 17 years old when the alleged happened in the UK- legal age of consent in the UK is 16 years old.

    41 year old Royal has sex with 17 year old after plying her with vodka, nothing to see here then, move along.

    Not sure what this has to do with anything. Prince Andrew wasn’t the only or first lad to be screwing around. My mates were always screwing around in their late teens and early twenties…and not the only ones. No doubt I would have been too if I were not the ugly munter of the group and crap at chatting up the ladies. But we used to frequent the trendy pubs and clubs back in the day and the guys were off with different women almost every week. Pop down into any club or bar today in towns and cities up and down the country and the kids are still at it – probably moreso as the youth of today are far more promiscuous than we ever were.

    Seems a pointless case this does. No evidence after all these years so purely his word against hers. Can’t blame Andrew for avoiding things as much as he can though…IF he’s innocent then why go to court unless you absolutely couldn’t avoid it? He’s never going to get a fair trial and its just going to be tabloid fodder – just look at the disaster of that interview when he naively tried to set the record straight…he’ll have learned from that and no longer offer up any help to plead his case. He’s daft but not that daft. And IF he’s guilty then of course he’s going avoid it for as long as possible.

    I recon we trade him in for that wife of a CIA spy (or was it she who was the spy??) who knocked that lad off his motorbike and killed him because she was driving on the wrong side of the road and is not hiding behind diplomatic immunity.

    A parasitic group of people who hoard wealth and power and help hold our country back in the dark ages. I mean, we don’t actually have to guillotine them we could just take all their wealth I suppose and do something useful with it.

    Prince Andrew wasn’t the only or first lad to be screwing around.

    A very rich man taking part in an international sex trafficking operation exploiting very young girls isn’t quite the same as going out on the pull, IMO. 🙄

    He was in his forties, and married, and I agree, just pointing out that what seemed scurrilous at the time may end up being somewhat darker.

    If she was trafficked, if she hadn’t consented and if he knew, then yes, he’s a nasty dirty crook.

    There are other scenarios where rather than being a criminal he might “only” be one of many morally dubious middle aged men who have sex with much younger women when they get the chance.

    I don’t approve or support his actions on that second possibility at all, I think Prince Andrew is a stain on the nation, but I’m impressed that so many people are happy to leap to judgement without waiting for the outcome of a legal process.

    Let’s hope no one makes any allegations about any of us eh?

    I’m impressed that so many people are happy to leap to judgement without waiting for the outcome of a legal process.

    Some people are quite well protected from legal processes though. Did you actually watch the interview he did? He’s the guiltiest man I’ve ever seen.

    If she was trafficked, if she hadn’t consented and if he knew, then yes, he’s a nasty dirty crook.

    What if (as seems likely) she had consented but was very young and vulnerable and was being exploited by clever, vastly powerful people, and Prince Andrew didn’t care – because he was used to having pretty young girls made available to him, and didn’t want to ask too many questions about the mechanics of that?

    You do know he is alleged to have had sex with her in London and not Little Saint James. And Jeffrey Epstein is not his nome de guerre. I’m aware of the Epstein connection but that doesn’t necessarily mean anything at this stage since, as I have pointed out, there has thus far been no legal case.

    What if (as seems likely) she had consented

    Wait, was she trafficked or not? If she consented then there is no case to answer, even in Sweden.

    There are other scenarios where rather than being a criminal he might “only” be one of many morally dubious middle aged men who have sex with much younger women when they get the chance.

    I think this is far more likely. I also don’t think it’s beyond the realms of possibility that someone like Epstein could set up a compromising situation to catch out an idiot like Andrew, which is probably what he’s actually terrified of seeing light.
