      Good riddance, of course. But it's interesting that the one senior person taken down on this is the one who protected Epstein and his associates. None of the actual associates seems to have been that damaged by association yet.

          This will take time (if it ever happens). The investigative focus up to this point has very much been on Epstein, not his "friends".

          That has the potential to change (particularly if Ghislaine Maxwell is cooperating fully), but is by no means certain.

            That's exactly what I was implying. I'm sure I've heard their names mentioned together.

              All the time over here, possibly even more than either Clinton or Trump.

                That's why I mentioned 'Randy Andy' on the previous page. Their association has long been known, and Andrew is in a photograph with one of the [then] 15-year old main accusers.

                  Note this morning that Epstein lawyer Ken Starr has been on Fox News 65 times since the arrest without once being asked about his former(?) client.
                  Ken Starr? That name sounds familiar.

                    I've only just seen that. Saw Trump and Clinton mentioned but must have skimmed over that name.

                    So Prince Andrew is clearly implicated. Hmmm.

                          Fascinating speculation about Epstein's rise without trace. (which expands on one of the angles in one of Bruno's opening articles.)

                            Epstein was one of those people that Wall Street people gossiped about (especially after Madoff). The two threads present in all of that gossip that I heard were a) the "girls/young women/models" and b) a strong belief that he never had anywhere near as much money as he claimed to have (something that should sound familiar w/r/t to the current President of the US.

                              I can't get my head around "I only accept a $1 billion investment in my fund."

                                That wasn't the usual version of the claim.

                                It was "I only accept money from billionaires".

                                  How many people can lay their hands on a billion dollars in liquid cash to invest with an investment whizz like this?

                                    Rather more than could even ten years ago.

                                      That's what I thought but then thought it was impossible.

                                      There appears to be a huge scandal about to break that could bring down many but will that be allowed.

                                      Is there any connection between Epstein and Berlusconi?

                                        Not that has been discussed, though they obviously have similar tastes in "entertainment" and an ability to subborn numerous women to act as procurers for them.

                                          The similarities seem striking, hence my question but it's also a man in power syndrome or a man with money or just a man who can.

                                            They were able to keep most of the stories about Edward VIII out of the press. Are there enough D-Notices in the world to keep this one quiet if it goes sour for one particular member of the royal family?

                                              Edward VIII. What stories were those (apart from his Nazi collaboration and his flirtatious wife)

                                                The primary issue that he has is that the Palace is nowhere near as influential over here and that US law is much less protective of public figures when it comes to matters of defamation.

                                                Berlusconi has always be a libertine, but his interest in much younger women came quite late in life (while there have long been rumblings that he supplemented his youthful cruise ship crooner earnings by acting as a gigolo). It has been suggested that the change reflects his obsession with his "performance", which is also reflected in the consumption of massive quantities of viagra. He also seems to fancy aspiring "showgirls" in the early 20s, that than literal schoolgirls.

                                                    Well US papers printed a hell of a lot of stories about Edward VIII all through the war. Sadly it was more challenging to get access to the US media in the 1940s.

                                                    Edward VIII. What stories were those (apart from his Nazi collaboration and his flirtatious wife)

                                                    Well the story was that he was receiving his regular briefings on cabinet meetings from Chamberlain, and then sending Wallis over to Von Ribbentrop with a transcript. That's a pretty big story to keep under wraps. It also transpires that Churchill had to threaten the duke of Windsor with a court martial to get him to go back to england, and to stop hanging out with Nazi Spies. he also seemed to spend the years after the war breaking currency regulations and funnelling large sums of sterling out of the UK. He was a pretty brazen bad 'un.
