Why does a thread on here always end up being about 20's instead of the actual topic once he has posted? It just spoils a decent thread.

as for prince Andrew, he will be protected as much as he can be, but hopefully the truth will out. Some of the excuses on here for him are unbelievable!

Hertford. Knowing your previous career I’m sure you have insights that most of us don’t.

From my perspective I’m betwixt and between.

I really don’t like PA and think he’s a privileged and entitled tosser. And I don’t doubt he’s taken full advantage of the opportunities presented to him. But that isn’t the same as saying he’s committed any criminal offences and, as far as I’m aware, he hasn’t been charged with anything. That said, it seems pretty clear that US Prosecutors are trying to build a case against him. And that he’s doing his best not to help them. But so far, it’s all allegations and no charges.

As for the complainants, this is where I’ve got to acknowledge prejudices I may not even be aware I have, and declare I may not be the best judge.

In my mind grooming and sex trafficking conjure up sordid images of grubby terraced houses and trailers attached to the backs of lorries. They don’t conjure up pictures of flights in 1st class and champagne. And I suppose that’s why some people are sceptical when victims pop up 20 years after the event and claim they were exploited. Especially when the suspicion is they may be looking for a big pay day. From a criminal law angle it depend on the age of the victim. The lady associated with PA was 17 and therefore above the age of consent in the UK. Not an attractive picture I agree, but not a criminal offence?

That said I know (as does every BFC supporter) sexual predators come in all shapes and sizes.

In short, I’m befuddled (and not for the first time!).

So insights much appreciated.

I'm a Royalist and proud to be so but that's a general thing.

Think most of them do a good job but undoubtedly Andrew has abused his privileges for a great number of things over the years.
Never hear much of Edward these days but Charles despite his eccentricities, and Anne do a good job with the minimum of fuss. And William more than seems aware of Royalty in the 21ST century and takes a more modern attitude of life and associating with the masses.

Because he’s an argumentative gobshite.😉
Pulled me up on this thread for not reading his post properly.When I clearly had, DH.

I'm entitled to my opinion just as you are.
I certainly haven't heard anything about 'under age girls' held against their will kicking and screaming. Have you?


Besides, were you there?
Consensual under age girls are still under age girls. Very strange viewpoint, IMO

18 is the federal age of consent in the States.

Care to elaborate on what is getting worse and why I shouldn't re-act to a post that is doing no more than mocking people?
If you are going to take exception to that particular remark, you are going to be permanently angry. Oh....

I was actually referring to your regular habit of coming in and starting a fight about something that was not actually under discussion. It's a good job you weren't around for the Cuban missile crisis, you'd have started Armageddon over the queue in the post office.

Absolute bollux.Some people are proud to be British, that doesn’t make me a royalist.
“Some people are royalists and are proud to be British.”

I haven’t the time nor inclination to spend the day rowing with you.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.🤘✌
All I said was that some people are royalists and proud to be British. That's not bollux because I am one of those people.

I perfectly well accept that you can be proud to be British but not a royalist. Don't misinterpret what I said for what you think I said.

More tosh from you. Firstly asking for an explanation is not necessarily taking exception.

Secondly, if it wasn't actually under discussion then why did the person make the comment he did? Am I not allowed to comment on a remark he made?

You seem to have a bee in your bonnet with me at the moment Robbie. Doesn't bother me though. And like I said to you when you privately messaged me I don't get angry about the contents of AVFTT. I simply challenge people if I disagree with them. Anything any else you need to know feel free to ask.

Mex, I don't have any prior knowledge about PA apart from the rumours we all hear, unlike Sville and Smith which must have been the worst kept secrets in the world!

I just hope that if he has been involved in anything like that then he is made to answer the allegations, in a court of law if he has to. If he hasn't then he has nothing to worry about does he?

As you said Sexual offenders come in all shapes and sizes as well as socio economic backgrounds it is perversely a very diverse bunch but those who have lots of money and power have that added clout behind them when investigators come sniffing.

Not really a bee in my bonnet, 20s, just a bit concerned. Judging by this page alone, I'm not the only person who has noticed that you are being unduly "alpha male" lately. It is very hard for the shyer posters, like me. 😎

Pretty simple really. Ghost made a comment mocking people for deferring to the Royals and about flag waving people at a royal event. Now as some-one who is a royalist myself, I think I'm perfectly entitled to comment back at him. And that's all I did. In my book there's nowt wrong for sticking up for something you believe in. Even if sometimes you are in the minority on here.
That goes with the territory though and there will always be posters like Plastic Mac trying to stir up the pot even more..
I've made my views known on this thread with regards to PA. But in my book one bad apple isn't reason to have a go at all the others who I think work pretty hard on behalf of the country.

I agree with you 100% that some of them work very hard for us and have a strong sense of public duty. I still think the institution is anachronistic though.

You’ve contradicted yourself once on the thread, give it up man.

Latest press release from the Palace :
"Unfortunately, Prince Andrew will not be available to give evidence in court or for media interviews. Earlier today he was detained indefinitely, at Her Majesty's pleasure, in an isolated, padded cell in the Tower of London. You can appreciate that this is a difficult time for the Prince, but you can be assured his personal needs are being well attended to by the Royal footmen. Any recovery is expected to be long and tortuous, so the Family ask for privacy at this difficult time"
