    Andrew claiming the photo is a fake just makes him look more guilty. Why do you desperately need to deny the photo is genuine if you didn't have sex with her?

    Not the sharpest knife in the draw.

    Lord Lucan wasn't a royal, was he?

    The US, not UK.
    It's not a very big story outside a bit of gossip or titillation in the UK.

    Brexit, a general election and the new EPL season are higher priorities in the UK news cycles.

    Under age Prostitution wouldn't even get Andrew into the pantheon of the top 20 worse British royals ever.

    He might get into the top three of the last 100 years after Lord Lucan the murderer and King Edward the traitor.

    Another excellent piece by Hyde.
    People will eventually get bored of it when the news cycle moves on.
    I suspect there will be an implied agreement from both parties to not mention it too much during the election.

    Berba, I can only access the UK edition, but the framing of their article is quite strange, starting with a dozen paragraphs or so on Lady M, then a few of his female dalliances, before getting to Kincora.

    It wouldn't surprise me if the Palace is more worried about this than they are about Andy.

    He says that he first met Epstein round at James Goldsmith's house. Of course, where else.

    Leafing through the Irish version of the Sunday times in the shop, it seems that a lot of this book about Mountbatten is concerned with the Kincora Boys home. You wouldn't have got that impression from initial coverage of it. This could get extremely messy. Similarly, you have to go a long way down through the reviews before you discover that another chunk is about his role in that coup that nearly happened in 1968, and how the queen had to convince him not to be part of it. .

    That is not a story that reflects well on the royal family in a very different way.

    this interview is possibly even wilder than the one with the comedy russian MMA chauffeur. doesn't back down defending epstein, realizes halfway through how big a hole he is digging, continues to talk about crimes he was in direct proximity of.

    Yeah, I’ve heard the name in regards to Epstein.

    You’ve heard the name—he’s one of the greatest scientists of the age, and you heard his name, oh bravo, you’re very qualified. You’re so full of shit, it’s terrible. You should not be writing about this. You’re not qualified.

    Oh boy. Why did I pick up the phone? Why wasn’t I out to dinner?

    Do you think Dershowitz—

    What have I done? You’re going to distort everything I said. I just know it.

    You’re being very clear in what you’re saying, and it’s very easy to understand your point of view here.

    I never knew what the hell he was doing. On the other hand, however, I was instrumental—I hung out with the scientists. He introduced me to a lot of scientists I otherwise would not have known.
    kind of exploitative of someone who i am going to take a wild stab in the dark and say has dementia, also very illustrative of how a shitload of people made themselves blind to the horror and will break their spines bending over backwards to justify it. it's an uncomfortable read, but a truly remarkable one.

    I'm just impressed that he's managed to blunder into pretty much the last sort of scandal that everyone is agreed is bad.

    As Ursus says, WTF are his handlers thinking? He is clearly shitting bricks and these statements seem to be expressions of panic mode, which simply make him appear guilty of the accusations against him, but there must be professionals with calmer heads around him who are not stepping up and doing their jobs.

    He can't ask the press to cool it when he's escalating the conversation.

    Another statement: the prince didn't suspect a thing.

    Can't link on mobile, but it's on the BBC.

    Well, they do have that 95+ percent conviction rate to defend.

    But there is a long way to go from here to there actually being charges. That said, I order if his "model tycoon" pal is researching extradition treaties.

    Given what we've just seen with the Sophie Toscan Du Plantier case, they will convict a ham sandwich that has never been to france, on evidence so bad that the Irish DPP more or less told the Gardai that if he finished reading the file they sent him, he'd have to start prosecuting them.

    That is indeed a brilliant article.
