    Exactly.
    They did insert a quote that the DoS would be complying with the immigration rules at all times and it seems that she is.

    I think Prince Andrew did this interview to counter the press for not only the BRF in general, but for Beatrice’s upcoming wedding.

    Photographs can be deceiving. It was reported that PA, as a contact, connection, was Epstien’s crown jewel in his debauched world.

    And I’m sorry, what decade are we talking about?

    I don’t automatically believe the “metoo” moment of that photograph, and all the allegations attached to it. —Could be perfectly innocent in the context of a party.

    Sorry, how many times was I snapped spontaneously cozying up next to a “snapshot”? —with a cool guy? —Or gal —At a party?

    Bbm: I agree, it is the interviewer that is excruciatingly droll. But that works in favor of PA.

    What Prince Andrew did was cop to the fact that he did not live up to his role as a royal, his heritage. The ‘I’m flawed, but good’ defense. And he apologized.

    He’s a good dad by all accounts. Heck, he’s the best post divorced husband, still loving his family, anyway. He and Sarah are still living together, right? Who knows.

    Whether or not anything nefarious happened, or knowledge of same happened, PA was there to deny it.

    I think if I were Beatrice I’d feel relieved.

    Pure BS hes claiming that despite the fact an arrest warrant was issued for Epstein in May 2006 that he didn't know about that when he had Epstein at Beatrice's 18th in July 2006 and that he invited him because he invited Ghislaine. Is he actually trying to get us to believe that a red flag did not go up and no one informed him when someone on a guest list to a party where a number of RF members are present had an arrest warrant issued for sexual assault of a minor. If what he saying is true and no one had any idea then they need way better security.

    Hes also saying he cut off contact from Epstein in 2006 and didn't have contact again until 2010, why on earth do you go to visit someone in person to tell them you can't be friends with them if you haven't had any contact with them in the proceeding 4 years?

    He doesn't sweat so Virgina Roberts isn't telling the truth about that apparently because he had an overdose of adrenaline during the Falklands war apparently but somehow kept serving in the Navy for years afterwards. I know not being able to sweat is a really really serious condition, am I right to think that if you genuinely weren't able to sweat you would be discharged asap?

    Also he says he always wears a suit and tie in the UK so hes casting doubt on the photo because of that too. He also claims he took Beatrice to a party in Pizza Express that afternoon and somehow seems to indicate that that would prevent him from going out that night because he remembers that day distinctly but for whatever reason doesn't say what he was doing that night.

    The red flag for Epstein went up this year. Here, in the USA. But we have issues.

    Too late.

    And, I think that’s what the metoo movement wants to change. I’m way thumps up, high five for that.

    Change the future!

    But the details of 25 years ago? And, if this gal wants to file a suit, she will. Talking to the trash press is not helping her. Imo.

    Epstein was also known for his Wall Street dealings.

    —Think this was more along his lines...

    He and Fergie are smarmy, but they know this, yet they raised a couple of royal daughters.

    I read that Andrew was a favorite...

    And why would Epstein and Ghislane be invited to an 18 year old Royal's birthday party?

    Aren't there about 200o more suitable guests for this.

    I guess this boils down to was PA aware of criminal activity at any number of parties.

    I don’t see a slew of bromance pictures of Epstein & PA.

    Two pictures, decades apart.

    Furthermore, there’s Fergie, and her dealings.

    Bbm: Because that’s what you do when someone bails you out?

    There are financial dealings in the mix, too.

    NCP tycoon Sir Donald Gosling 'leaves £50 million to the Queen'... so she can build a new Royal Yacht

    The yachting world is awash with whispers that Donald Gosling, the late millionaire boss of National Car Parks, has left £50 million in his will… to the Royal Family.

    It seems the donation is to put towards an as-yet unspecified scheme to commission a new Royal Yacht.

    Sir Donald, who died in September aged 90, was as outraged as the Queen when the Royal Yacht Britannia was taken away from her by Tony Blair’s Government in 1997.

    If this is true I wonder if Her Majesty will build a new yacht.

    Prince Andrew reveals he last met university chum Ghislaine Maxwell just months ago - despite 'cutting off all contact' with her ex-boyfriend (and 'plus one' to royal parties) Jeffrey Epstein in 2010... so where IS she now?

    Prince Andrew says he met Ghislaine Maxwell months ago - despite 'cutting off contact' with Epstein | Daily Mail Online

    It is shocking Prince Andrew met her just months ago. There is no way he did not know what was going on. This photo of Prince Andrew at Epstein’s townhouse says it all to me.

    Reviews of Prince Andrew’s interview

    Piers Morgan brands Prince Andrew interview 'desperate toe curling bulls**t'

    Piers Morgan brands Prince Andrew interview 'desperate toe curling ********'

    A public relations expert has branded the Duke of York's interview over his links with paedophile Jeffrey Epstein as "like watching a man in quicksand".

    PR and crisis consultant Mark Borkowski said Andrew's appearance on BBC Newsnight was a lesson on "how not to do" public relations.

    PR expert has 'never seen anything so disastrous' as Prince Andrew's interview

    I agree that PA likely did do this interview with the stern encouragement from Sarah Ferguson to take the evil shadow off of him in planning for Beatrice's spring wedding.

    We're heading into the holiday season, not a good time to start this up. Then it's too close to the wedding and the public comments over it would hang over his appearance at the spring wedding planned in the UK.

    The timing makes sense for that reason. But this did him no favors and will not exonerate him in the way it was likely planned.

    Like WTH - He met Ghislane, the evil procurer of young women just months ago? Epstein was arrested in July and died in August. His crimes were openly exposed at that point. Why in the Heck would he have any contact with that woman at all?

    I'm ever more mortified.

    Totally off the current topic and sort of off the whole thread topic perhaps, but I thought I’d mention the videos I just saw on the ravens that live “in the Tower”.

    The “raven master” has a full-time job tending to the birds -7 of them- minding them, feeding them “blood-soaked biscuits” (yum!) and putting them to bed at night.

    If anyone is interested, just google Tower of London ravens” under videos and you’ll see what I mean. Can’t link right now.

    This is amazing! Thanks so much for the tip! I love the Raven Master's outfit! Never knew there was such a job!
