    46 plaintiffs and counting

    I hadn't realised that the Group has gone into administration. There is still a.good chance he dies a natural death, alas.

    Apparently 'dozens' of women have join the Creepy Pete class action lawsuit.

    If it was a wild smear in the dark, the US government seem to have come to similar conclusions themselves.
    this appears to be the only thread which has the word Kincora

    so ai guess this is the place for this odditty

    The Times has been really good this weekend. Nygard, the French Ponzi / Fraud, Corona coverage and even someone in their 40s looking to spend $2000 tops to rent an apartment.

    If billionaires behaving badly is your thing, you could do worse than reading up on the mutually-assured-destruction feud between Perlmutter and Peerenboom over....wait for it....a tennis instructor.

    Ah, it's finally broken the surface. This thing has been bubbling just under it for years and years. Every time we walk by the Nygard store and pass his smiling, years-old picture, I go 'Creepy Fucking Peter' and then inform my wife of the latest. It's usually just a dispute with his Bahamian neighbour over something that horrible old billionaires do to one another. The latest was him dodging a trial by making out that he was too sick to travel. The series of photos supplied to the press were comically bad. Most stories refer to debaucherous house parties with dozens...if not hundreds...of 'very young' women. His Bahamas mansion is really worth a googling.

    To know one person who engaged in systematic sex abuse of minors is unfortunate etc

    These allegations (as yet unproven) sound sickeningly familiar

    And yes, a certain "senior royal" has been photographed with this guy too.

    Oh, it's easy enough to make empty promises on camera. All one need then do is make oneself completely unavailable when push comes to shove.

    (The use of 'one' there is, of course, partially deliberate.)

    Prince Andrew giving 'zero' cooperation to Epstein inquiry, say US prosecutors

    https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...droidApp_Gmail

    I thought he said he would cooperate. Seems like he's playing games, does this mean the alleged paedophile and child rapist has something to hide?

    Welby seems the sort of terrible cunt you'd expect from City Gent turned penitent. A Tory Wet at prayer, at best.

    Justin Welby allegedly says we all make mistakes when talking about Prince Andrew.

    I think raping a child and being a paedophile allegedly is slightly more than a mistake.

    Depends on how you apply that. Obviously they are not accountable in as far as there are enforcible sanctions. But there are other ways of holding royals to account -- such as the public anger that forced the queen to submit to quivering her upper lip a bit after the death of Diana. Andrew has been held to account already by organisations hat are cutting ties with him.

    But my point doesn't so much reside with the mechanics than the principle of accountability. As somebody in a publicly supported institution, Andrew is answerable to the public in ways a political freelancer or a journalist aren't (though if Marr works for the BBC, an argument could be made that he also has a case to answr, if one exists).

    Of course, the idea of any accountability by tax-funded individuals is giving way to brazen impunity where no scandal has consequences because... oh, cat meme!

    More newsworthy, certainly. More publicly accountable? Hes a member of the royal family, almost by definition they are absolutely not publicly accountable

    I do get your point of how connections help to cover up, but surely Prince Andrew is by nature of his position more newsworthy -- and more publicly accountable -- than a couple of political and media hacks.

    Boies has not looked good for some time, as indicated by the now near totemic incantation of his representation of Al Gore in 2000 as establishing his progressive bona fides. There's also his work for Harvey Weinstein, of course, and if the reports of a few ex-colleagues are any guide, his firm is rather less than a great place to practice law.

    Yes it seems doubtful if any video evidence will ever see the light of day.

    Virginia Guiffre is a lot more credible witness than Andy.

    Between this and Theranos, Boies is not exactly looking good right now.
