    Typical BoJo comment. Gets the soundbite out and then, no matter how insincere or contradictory it sounds, covers his arse.

    nothing insincere or contradictory at all about his comment.

    boris was talking about the institution of the monarchy, which in his opinion is beyond reproach. he was not talking about the behaviour of an individual but minor member of that institution.

    just look what happened when johnson made an off the cuff comment about the woman jailed in iran, the fucxers used it as an excuse to increase her jail sentence.

    considering that there have been no charges yet made against the prince, either in the uk or in the usa, he was perfectly correct in avoiding commenting about the unsubstantiated rumours and as yet unproven accusations relating to him.

    prince andrew is perfectly capable of digging his own grave, he doesnt need any help either from johnson or that repulsive two faced jew hating piece of shit corbyn.

    I hate to admit i actually agree with you on this.

    Corbyn correctly expressed his sympathy for the victims first and apeared sincere compared to Boris.

    In fact imho Corbyn won the night.

    oh please. stop it.

    the mawkish expressions of sympathy for each and every victim of every possible injustice, real or imagined, uttered with the kind of hand wringing sincerity that fools nobody but the already converted by politicians such as the execrable corbyn is a meaningless gesture and helps the victims not a jot.

    it is the most cynical virtue signalling imaginable and serves only to excite the hordes of the easily offended into paroxysms of self righteousness as they seek to crucify he who fails to publicly utter the "sympathy" mantra.

    most of the victims in this case, victims that have waited over 20 years before suddenly announcing their victimhood are salivating at the thought of a nice juicy payout from epsteins estate.

    Prince Andrew has stepped back from public life — it was the only thing he could do

    By Europe bureau chief Samantha Hawley
    Updated about an hour ago
    Space to play or pause, M to mute, left and right arrows to seek, up and down arrows for volume.

    VIDEO: Prince Andrew told the BBC he would give a statement under oath "'if push came to shove". (ABC News)
    [/COLOR]
    RELATED STORY: Prince Andrew withdraws from public duties 'for the foreseeable future'
    RELATED STORY: Two Australian universities pull the pin on Prince Andrew's Pitch@Palace
    RELATED STORY: UK leaders' debate overshadowed by Prince Andrew Epstein furore

    It was the only way it could go.
    The Duke of York's interview with the BBC was so appalling there was no way the Queen's second, and supposedly favourite son, could continue in public life.
    A Royal headache


    Prince Andrew's interview over his friendship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein has left some questioning the Queen's control over the Royal family.


    Trying to clear oneself in the court of public opinion is never a sound idea; the next interview the Prince gives should be with the FBI.
    Everything in the statement that has now come should have been said in the hour-long interview.
    The gravity of the situation has hit home at Buckingham Palace.
    The Duke said he asked the Queen if he could step back from public duties, but whether he made the decision or it was forced upon him, it was the only way forward for the Royal family.
    The Royal family's brand has been deeply damaged across the globe by one of its most senior members.

    In the BBC interview, Prince Andrew refused to acknowledge the pain suffered by sex offender Jeffery Epstein's victims.
    Now, on paper at least, he said he "deeply sympathised" with them.
    PHOTO: Epstein was registered as a sex offender after he was convicted in 2008. (AP: New York State Sex Offender Registry)
    While being interviewed, he extraordinarily claimed he did not regret his friendship with Epstein because of the people he had met and the opportunities he had been given by him.
    "I continue to unequivocally regret my ill-judged association with Jeffrey Epstein," Prince Andrew corrected in the latest statement.
    "His suicide has left many unanswered questions, particularly for his victims, and I deeply sympathise with everyone who has been affected and wants some form of closure."
    If you or anyone you know needs help:





    The problem he faces now is getting the public — at home and abroad — to believe his newfound understanding of the gravity of where he finds himself.
    Do they believe him when he says he hopes Epstein's victims "will be able to rebuild their lives", or are they suspicious given the lateness of the thoughtfulness?
    Any interview with the FBI will heavily focus on the serious allegations against him, that he had sex with a trafficked 17-year-old girl on three occasions.
    He categorically denied knowing the alleged victim, Virginia Giuffre, but said he is willing to help any law enforcement agency if required.
    Not being able to "recall" meeting her might not be convincing enough for investigators.
    PHOTO: The Prince told the BBC that "nobody can prove whether or not that photograph has been doctored". (Supplied)
    It is clear the statement came because the pressure was just too great.
    Day after day, the Prince was front-page news and then the sponsors of the charities he was associated with began fleeing in droves.
    Four Australian universities linked to Pitch@Palace, an initiative for entrepreneurs, were among those to decide that associating with the Duke is now of no benefit.
    Prince Andrew's BBC interview


    The Duke of York's interview about his relationship to sex offender Jeffrey Epstein may be a decision the House of Windsor ultimately regrets, writes Bridget Brennan.

    Then came reports that threw into doubt the claim that he'd first met Jeffrey Epstein in 1999, with the Duke's previous chief of staff claiming the men had met in the early 1990s.
    He knows too that media organisations are on the prowl, investigating what else has been left unsaid so far.
    There's been many a controversy surrounding the Royals in the past, but not in living memory has a Prince had to step back from public life.
    The serious allegations laid against him cannot and should not be brushed aside, no matter how damaging for the monarchy.

    It is attitudes like that which prevent people from coming forward in the first place.

    The conclusions to be drawn from the side taxexile is on are not edifying.

    The way that wording suggests a wily pedator waiting for their chance for 20 years is actually just sickening.

    He seems to be conflicted and contradictory on the subject to say the very least.

    He has no compunction accusing others of being pedophiles, in this instance apparently has determined that most of the alleged victims of a convicted sexual abuser are only in it for the money, and has recounted his own personal tale of an encounter with a pedophile and found it noteworthy to wax lyrical about the guys accent and comment that the child he was abusing 'seemed happy'.

    Yes, and that's certainly one of the more laughable tough guy yarns ever spun.

    One presumes he will forgo his UK Taxpayers Provided (UTP) accommodation, his (UTP) use of royal trains/planes, his (UTP) use of royal aids/protection and refuse to accept any monies from the (UTP) Sovereign Grant.

    let's not forget the early Zionists and Israel supporters were all financed by the British, with the Rothschild buying land in their name, before they stole all the money and had to use force instead to get that land

    Prince Andrew was a liability in the Falklands conflict (not a war). Lots of resources diverted for his protection so I doubt very much he ever witnessed being shot at...

    I really don't get what the problem is. The girl was of the age of consent so nothing illegal occurred.

    Well, the whole consent thing is the problem. According to the reports the girl was trafficked.
