I’m back after the holiday break!
Now, what have I missed ?
Oh yes, Mr Andrew Windsor whose claim to ‘fame’, privilege, and untold wealth is that he is the second son of a woman, who was the first born of a man, who was the second son of another man, who was the eldest son of yet another man, who was the eldest son of a woman. – She was the daughter of the second son of another man (who kept losing his head), who was the first son of another man, who in turn was the eldest son of yet another man who happened to be the nearest Protestant relation to a woman. – She was the daughter of a man, who was the son of another man, who was in turn the son of yet another man (who lost his head just once). – This man was the first son of yet another man who was the great-great-grandson of, you guessed it, another man. And this man could trace his ancestors right back to a little Frenchman who invaded Great Britain, enslaved and subjugated the people that lived there, stole all their land and possessions, and created a gangster state which has ensured that all of the men and women mentioned above have had the same ‘fame’, privilege and untold wealth as Mr Andrew Windsor.
A 1000 years of inbreeding has left Mr Andrew Windsor without a shred of common sense but 1000 years of privilege has enabled him to effortlessly rise above this disadvantage, it has instilled within him an arrogance based on delusion, a delusion re-enforced by the Establishment who fawn and pamper him. It is not because Mr Andrew Windsor is insightful or intelligent that he became special representative for international trade and investment on behalf of the UK but given his gangster heritage he knows how to take full advantage of such a powerful position.
The Duke of York stayed at the townhouse, just off Central Park, for four days before Christmas.
He and Lord Mandelson have worked together in the past because of the duke’s role as a special representative for international trade and investment, part of the peer’s then portfolio as business secretary. The former MP was also an EU commissioner for Trade.
The two men have a close mutual friend, the Kazakh socialite and businesswoman Goga Ashkenazi, and both attended her 30th birthday party in February last year.Lord Mandelson was also hired to speak at two events organised by a stock company owned by the Kazakh government and effectively run by the President’s son-in-law, Timur Kulibayev.
Mr Kulibayev bought Prince Andrew’s former marital home, Sunninghill, three years ago for £15million – £3million above the asking price.
But don’t you dare look too closely at such a fortunate personal business transaction because Mr Andrew Windsor doesn’t think very highly of the UK’s anti-corruption laws or pesky journalists “who poke their noses everywhere”.
Prince Andrew launched a scathing attack on British anticorruption investigators, journalists and the French during an “astonishingly candid” performance at an official engagement that shocked a US diplomat.
Tatiana Gfoeller, Washington’s ambassador to Kyrgyzstan, recorded in a secret cable that Andrew spoke “cockily” at the brunch with British and Canadian business people, leading a discussion that “verged on the rude”.
During the two-hour engagement in 2008 at a hotel in the capital, Bishkek, Andrew, who travels the globe as a special UK trade representative, attacked Britain’s corruption investigators in the Serious Fraud Office for what he called “idiocy”.
He went on to denounce Guardian reporters investigating bribery as “those (expletive) journalists … who poke their noses everywhere”.
I mention all of this because it’s always a good idea to know what kind of jumped up, arrogant, spoiled, privileged little tosspot we’re dealing with here. If he wants a helicopter, he gets it. An armed forces commission ? More medals ? A Government job ? Twelve ‘advisors’ paid for by taxpayer? All yours Mr Andrew Windsor, because you are part of the ‘Family’ and if you don’t get exactly what you want then someone is going to be wearing concrete boots and swimming with the fish.
But that is all by the by. Lets look at the specific child abuse allegations currently levelled at Mr Andrew Windsor.
As I see it Virginia Roberts makes 3 allegations against Mr Windsor. That she had sex with him in New York, London, and on a private Caribbean Island.
1) Virginia Roberts was 17 years old at the time. Therefore, unless there was demonstrable coercion because she was above the UKs age of consent laws the London allegation would not be a crime.
2) The age of consent laws in New York are higher and at 17 years old Virginia Roberts was a minor in that jurisdiction. However, according to The Times, a deal was struck by the US prosecutors and Mr Andrew Windsor has some kind of ‘immunity from prosecution.
3) That leaves the allegation that Mr Windsor was involved in an orgy with Miss Roberts and other under-age girls on Jeffrey Epstein’s private Caribbean island. There are two possibilities that could yet lead Mr Windsor into legal trouble.
a) If any of the other ‘under-age girls’ were below the UK’s age of consent then Mr Windsor could be investigated by the Metropolitan Police if a complaint is made;
b) The ‘private Caribbean Island’ will fall under the jurisdiction of a country. If that country has an age of consent where a 17 year old is a minor, then Mr Windsor might be investigated in that jurisdiction if Miss Roberts makes a complaint (or any of the other girls).
But don’t hold your breath!
