US Epstein accuser wants Duke to speak up

A woman who alleges she was a victim of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and claimed she was forced into a sexual encounter with the Duke of York has urged the royal to “come clean”.

Virginia Giuffre was speaking to reporters after a hearing for alleged victims of the disgraced financier and said Andrew “knows what he’s done”.

Since Epstein’s death, there have been a number of reports about his relationship with the duke, including that the pair travelled together on Epstein’s private jet with teenager Virginia Roberts, now known as Giuffre.

Giuffre has claimed in court papers in Florida that she was forced to have sex with Andrew when she was aged 17, under the state’s age of consent.

Her allegations, which Andrew denies, were struck from US civil court records in 2015 after a judge said they were “immaterial and impertinent”.

Buckingham Palace has contested reports about Andrew’s links to Epstein, including the private jet flights, over “a number of inconsistencies”.

On Tuesday, 16 women who claim they were victims of Epstein spoke at a hearing in New York after a judge offered the accusers the opportunity to give statements about the impact of the alleged offending.

“He knows exactly what he’s done and I hope he comes clean about it,” Giuffre said outside court in response to a request for comment about the duke.

Andrew released a statement at the weekend expressing “tremendous sympathy” for Epstein’s alleged victims.

The Duke of York, who is the second son of Queen Elizabeth, issued a lengthy statement saying he wanted to “clarify the facts” around his relationship with Epstein.

He also reiterated that it was a “mistake” seeing Epstein, 66, after the American’s release from an 18-month prison term in 2010 for prostituting minors.

In the statement, Andrew said: “It is apparent to me since the suicide of Mr Epstein that there has been an immense amount of media speculation about so much in his life.

“This is particularly the case in relation to my former association or friendship with Mr Epstein.

“Therefore I am eager to clarify the facts to avoid further speculation.

“I met Mr Epstein in 1999. During the time I knew him, I saw him infrequently and probably no more than only once or twice a year. I have stayed in a number of his residences.”

“At no stage during the limited time I spent with him did I see, witness or suspect any behaviour of the sort that subsequently led to his arrest and conviction.”

Epstein was found dead on August 10 in his prison cell in New York, where he was being held on sex trafficking charges.

    • I think Rachel is correct.
      When you look at the 1970s and the rock groups and underage groupies where do you start moralising and digging up old matters?
      The likes of Lori Maddox, Bebe Buell (the mother of Liv Tyler), Sable Starr and so on went hunting these rock stars and ‘getting notches’.
      Maddox was approx 14 at the beginning depending on whom you listen to. Some say 15.
      In the drugs haze the stories get blurred.

      They knew what they were doing. Often they would track down rock stars who had varying degrees of functionality with excessive amounts of drugs and/or alcohol in their system.

      Were the rock stars (often stoned) able to give consent to aggressive sexualised women who may have been underage but on the hunt?

      The ‘Banger Sisters’ (2002) movie with Goldie Hawn and Susan Sarandon basically said that is what the women want. Some mature sexually sooner than others and there are 18 or 19 year olds who are still not ready.
      To dig up the past can be dangerous.

      Diana Spencer was a naive virgin at 19 who got used by the royal family of Britain as a breeding mare. Did her age make it right?

      • I have to agree. If it was in NZ, there would be no case. If the girl was young like 14 or so, I’d say there would be a bigger problem. The term “Jail Bait” has been around long enough for society to realise that some young things just throw themselves at older men, knowing full well what they are doing. However, Randy Andy, being a Royal should have been a bit more discreet, ( or organised the “Firm” to clean up the evidence. ). This is going to be a nuisance for “Cabbage” that will not die as easy a death as Epstein did….

        • Because young things behave badly older men are obliged to accept what’s on offer?
          Dear God.
          Any minute now you’re going to force me to use phrases like victim-blaming and rape-culture.
          Heaven forbid Randy should get a real job so he’s too busy to be out boozing, snorting and fornicating.
          Not to mention flying around in private jets warming the planet every other week. /
          And to think Phil the Greek thought Fergie brought the royals into disrepute!
          Pah. Other than their daughters both looking like they have FAS, Ferg is the very model of decorum if compared to Sailor Andy.

  1. The age for sex in NZ is generally 16 but is some cases higher like in the case of prostitution.

  2. Remember – the Deep State is always trying to misdirect our attention

    Funny how there was a mass organised children’s Climate Rally put in place to distract and confuse when the Ch’ch mosque shootings took place.

    Same story here with Prince Andrew. He is the sizable bait that is being dragged before us re Epstein to distract from all the DNC politicians and Hollywood types who enjoyed Epstein’s pedo services. The real story is Clinton’s 26 flights to/from Pedo Island. The flight logs are full of holier than thou types who lecture us about morals and toxic masculinity, white supremacism and racism – in between mouthfuls of extracts of little terrified children.

    Prince Andrew is simply the sacrificial lamb – punishing the Queen for letting BoJo do what he’s doing re Brexit. As we get closer to 31 October – the “revelations” about PA will get more and more lurid. Watch this space.

    • You’re onto it.
      The tin foil hat I apparently wear has slipped off now. Hard to reach the deniers.
      Looks like we are watching the same movie.
      Alan Dershowitz is crapping himself. He tried to get buddy, buddy with the Trumpmyster to save his wrinkly arse.
      He said he only had a massage once and he kept his jocks on.
      Sure Alan…..sure.
      Have you seen the list?

      The right old royal rooter has been hung out to dry. Watch this space indeed.

  3. I think the whole royal family carry-on needs to be looked at.
    Do they need all these hangers on?
    It’s like a standard SUV with 70 mudflaps …all with a lots of mud attached… and flapping around and showing the mud.

    Chucky, Randy Andy’s brother, is not fit to be a King – esp Head of State for NZ – immediately following his admission that he wanted be a tampon.
    What a sick fark! Let alone all his other blabberings since.
    I think it is pretty well identified that when Lady Diana Spencer woke up to what her life was going to be like married to that weird old git she wanted out- before the marriage. There was pressure brought to bear for her to proceed. Her brother touched on this at her funeral in 1997.

    I mean- who would want to be the Bride of Chucky.
    Ok, Camilla but she has always looked like an old battered leather handbag- clearly weird Chucky’s type.

    So, the fact that Diana was reluctant to proceed with the marriage brings in the matter of consent.
    It was by and large a forced marriage which something enlighten countries (sometimes) are opposed to.

    Frankly Andrew should get 20 years jail just for producing such hideously ugly daughters.
    They should have slapped the mother a birth – for about 3 years at a time.

    A sicko mob that due to a historic birthright and lots of inbreeding are proclaimed to be our betters ..when clearly they are not !
    Yep I’m shamelessly anti royal and think that a smaller ceremonial Royal group such as much of Europe has transitioned to would be better.

    Godruelf above. Good call.

    • All right in theory. But can you ever imagine the troughers giving up their gravy train in getting whitey to continue paying for the perceived grievences.

      • Rather than theory….
        The practicality of giving up the external head of state would be interesting.
        Do we go bad to an Upper house, a Senate?
        Would we have a President – as well as a Prime Minister- as does France?
        Even the forfeiting of the Privy Council IMO was unwise.
        That was Klarkenfuhrer.

        I guess that is why we stumble along as we have.
        Queen Eliza has been suitably neutral but the inbreeding is showing up poorly in Chucky Windsor the wannabe tampon. .He could be dangerous.

  4. Like all the women that accused Rolf Harris of abusing them.
    Many of them were newsreaders and other celebs.
    They were old enough to tell hi to just F off.
    So I doubt if anything happened.

      Ralphie was grooming his daughters friends and taking them on fabulous family holidays as a side dish.
