Just that.
Although he is being asked the wrong questions.

CodenameVillanelle Sat 16-Nov-19 21:42:37

Support him in what?!

Solihooley Sat 16-Nov-19 21:42:49

I think you’re on your own mate.

ThePrioryGhost Sat 16-Nov-19 21:43:34


He is an over entitled arrogant useless disgusting waste of skin.

Orf with his head!

PotatoesPastaAndBread Sat 16-Nov-19 21:43:45

Yes, yabu

Badabingbadabum Sat 16-Nov-19 21:43:48

Are you the Duke of York, OP? Or his lawyer?

Elodie2019 Sat 16-Nov-19 21:44:09

Support what exactly?
He's not come across well at all.

YouTheCat Sat 16-Nov-19 21:44:28

Support a man who has a massively privileged background? A man who is deeply involved in some really unpleasant and illegal activities?

No thanks.

isabellerossignol Sat 16-Nov-19 21:44:49

Didn't know the Queen was a mumsnetter.

beckyvardy Sat 16-Nov-19 21:44:54

Is this a reverse?

JoanieCash Sat 16-Nov-19 21:45:08

oP, what questions do you think he should be asked?

IfIShouldFallFromGraceWithGod Sat 16-Nov-19 21:45:11

Yabu to not put a vote on

Elodie2019 Sat 16-Nov-19 21:45:18

The priory
Harsh (but true).

PsychosonicCindy Sat 16-Nov-19 21:45:34

Have a word with yourself!!

isabellerossignol Sat 16-Nov-19 21:45:40

I'm wondering what the right questions would be...

Inspiralcarpetry Sat 16-Nov-19 21:45:43

Yabu. NO.
I do not recollect. I do not remember. I couldn't have. I don't know.
He doth protest too much.

goodtoseeyou Sat 16-Nov-19 21:45:44

Hello Elizabeth, as his mum you’re entitled to come on mumsnet and defend your waste of space son.

PinkiOcelot Sat 16-Nov-19 21:45:57

YABU!! Why would you support him?!!!

Iamthewombat Sat 16-Nov-19 21:46:26

I’m watching him now. He is using the same facial expressions that my nephews and nieces use when denying doing something that I already know they have done. The young family members are under ten. Prince Randy Andy is over 60.

Disfordarkchocolate Sat 16-Nov-19 21:46:52

Hello Sarah

saltysally Sat 16-Nov-19 21:47:18

Is that you Fergie?

TSSDNCOP Sat 16-Nov-19 21:47:23

Is that you Fergie?

VanyaHargreeves Sat 16-Nov-19 21:47:34

YABU Jesus Christ your standards are low. Bollocks he knew NOTHING of the mans proclivities, as if.

i dont know why he is accepting such questions

I’ll settle in with my popcorn.......

Rachelsfatarse Sat 16-Nov-19 21:51:00

Believe this lying piece of shit on my telly?

Grimbles Sat 16-Nov-19 21:52:02

Support him in his defence of a paedophile hmm?

ghostyslovesheets Sat 16-Nov-19 21:52:15

to copy a Twitter post - not the first time the royal family have organised a car crash

lljkk Sat 16-Nov-19 21:52:28

I don't believe her.
There. I said it.
But it doesn't matter if I believe her.
Mostly I hate trials of public opinion.
There should be a correct process... and this isn't it.

oreomum Sat 16-Nov-19 21:53:22

It is outrageous that he's never had to talk to law enforcement about this and will never be held accountable for his actions.

MrGsFancyNewVagina Sat 16-Nov-19 21:55:13

There should be a correct process... and this isn't it.

You’re right, but unfortunately that privileged piece of crap will never have to go through it, because he has the money, power and connections to keep him free.

VeryGenuinequestions Sat 16-Nov-19 21:56:33

Interesting response from you the cat.

Personally I wouldn't condemn or not condemn them on the the basis of their background.....

Prince Andrew is not in the the clear. He's a rich man and could have stayed anywhere.
No excuses.

loveautum Sat 16-Nov-19 21:56:52

I came on looking for a good thread but wasn't expecting someone to start a support thread 😂 good luck op 🤨

YouTheCat Sat 16-Nov-19 21:57:12

He'll be another Mountbatten.

VeryGenuinequestions Sat 16-Nov-19 21:58:22

I believe her and the very specific details of foot behaviour.. Fergie and toe sucking??

The night at tramp etc. All very regular except she was trafficked girl with a royal.

darkriver19886 Sat 16-Nov-19 21:59:34

Well your lovely, are you my mum? She supported a disgusting waste of space as well.

rainbowvalley17 Sat 16-Nov-19 22:00:41

It’s so easy for some people to be taken in isn’t it. All they have to do is put on a half sincere expression and then come out with a load of drivel and try to act the victim. The royals have very good PR.

lookatthebabypenguin Sat 16-Nov-19 22:00:42

It is outrageous that he's never had to talk to law enforcement about this and will never be held accountable for his actions.

It's the same for most rapists and abusers. At least this one is facing uncomfortable scrutiny.

HeavenOrSpace Sat 16-Nov-19 22:01:33

YABU, he's a dirty fucking liar

Mrsjayy Sat 16-Nov-19 22:04:07

Sarah is that you hmm

Your ex husband is an entiled slime bag revolting at best.

BarbedBloom Sat 16-Nov-19 22:04:16

Nope. There have been rumours about him for years and years associated with Epstein and young girls. I don't believe him at all and this is a PR move because people are starting to question the lack of investigation

RockysMa Sat 16-Nov-19 22:04:36

Yabu. He's a liar and a fucking bad one at that

SandraOhshair Sat 16-Nov-19 22:05:29

At the very least he's a freeloader, willing to turn a blind eye to his very, very rich friends disturbing taste in young girls, so he could enjoy the perks of said friends wealth and lifestyle.
What a creep.

VanyaHargreeves Sat 16-Nov-19 22:05:55

He has just described the behaviour of a sex offender as "unbecoming"

Yes, let's all rally round.

For all the stick Meghan has been getting would I be choosing to avoid having to spend my baby's first Christmas with this POS? Absolute no brainer.

floraloctopus Sat 16-Nov-19 22:08:44

WTF would I want to do that for?

Bluerussian Sat 16-Nov-19 22:08:46

Not unreasonable. I just watched the interview, felt very uneasy the whole time - I didn't expect or want to see a lot of it re-hashed afterwards on the news! However, I am inclined to believe him unless anything else comes out to prove otherwise.

Ilovelblue Sat 16-Nov-19 22:08:50

I hated it when he said it was inappropriate of him, as a member of the Royal Family, to go and stay in the house of a convicted paedophile. Hmm, not just as a member of the Royal Family, but inappropriate for anyone!

EleanorReally Sat 16-Nov-19 22:09:38

tbh i have been watching videos of queen victoria's children, some things they got up to would make your hair curl!
the royal family have to be squeaky clean now, despite all the riches

Bluerussian Sat 16-Nov-19 22:10:00

lookatthebabypenguin, Prince Andrew hasn't been accused of rape or abuse.

RolytheRhino Sat 16-Nov-19 22:10:58

Does he need your support? After all, he's got 10,000 men.

lilgreen Sat 16-Nov-19 22:11:22

You’re on your own.

EleanorReally Sat 16-Nov-19 22:13:45

he is accused of non consensual sex with a 17 year old

Ali1cedowntherabbithole Sat 16-Nov-19 22:14:44

Is the punchline going to be that you mean the one on the High Street that does a decent pie & chips?

Because that's the only sort of Duke of York I'd support.

EleanorReally Sat 16-Nov-19 22:15:00

she claims she was coerced into having sex with him,
i am inclined to believe him

Grimbles Sat 16-Nov-19 22:15:19

There should be a correct process... and this isn't it

I agree, he shouldn't be talking to the media about it.

But as he has, hes opened himself up to public opinion on what he has said.

TurquoiseDress Sat 16-Nov-19 22:16:16


He's made a massive misjudgement doing this interview- it's just simply opened a whole new cans of worms and very uncomfortable questions!

LadyLanka Sat 16-Nov-19 22:16:45

Ah the subsequent posts are exactly what I anticipated and only go to confirm my suspicions about this site.
However, we are all permitted to have our own opinions.

marvellousnightforamooncup Sat 16-Nov-19 22:18:24

I'd support him if he fucked off independently of his Mum and the British state. Although that would probably mean working with the Saudis so maybe not.

I'd also support him owning up to his shit behaviour and dobbing his mates in too.

ghostyslovesheets Sat 16-Nov-19 22:19:12

if your suspicions about this site is that it generally support women who say they have been raped, dislikes rape apologists and likes healthy debate - you are spot on

satanstoenailsandwich Sat 16-Nov-19 22:20:12

I'd tell what I really think but seeing as the Royal Family have gone all 'where there's blame there's a claim' lately I think I'd probably better keep my opinions to myself.

Disfordarkchocolate Sat 16-Nov-19 22:21:08

He knowingly stayed with and kept up contact with, a convicted paedophile.

If he was my relative I would be going no contact because of this lack of judgment. We know he did this. Even if be did nothing else he is a vile human being with no compassion for the victims of his 'friend'.

turnthebiglightoff Sat 16-Nov-19 22:21:34

@LadyLanka Hi Fergie!! 👋

Grimbles Sat 16-Nov-19 22:21:44

OP maybe you could clarify exactly what you support him in 🤷‍♀️

EleanorReally Sat 16-Nov-19 22:23:05

He can do no right, ever!
what with one thing and another.

minou123 Sat 16-Nov-19 22:23:22

This. 100%

Esspee Sat 16-Nov-19 22:23:26

Another one saying you are on your own OP.

marvellousnightforamooncup Sat 16-Nov-19 22:23:58

Didn't know the Queen was a mumsnetter
Well quite.

Liz, if that's you, can MNHQ have a Royal Warrant?

Supersimkin2 Sat 16-Nov-19 22:25:12

I believe him - his denials are so ham-fisted and conceited that they smack of truth.

Also, he is not concealing the fact he is a twat. He's not the first and he won't be the last to be taken in by a paedo.

FizzyIce Sat 16-Nov-19 22:25:32

Confirmed what you thought?
What’s that then ?
That not everyone supports a lying ,fucking slug?

SpeckledyHen Sat 16-Nov-19 22:26:36

He is beyond stupid. How on earth does the idiot think this interview would help his case ! Let’s see his security staff’s time sheets and work logs for March 10th at Pizza Express in Woking 😃

LadyLanka Sat 16-Nov-19 22:27:04

Where is the healthy debate?
There is a lot that does not add up. I am 100% sure that Epstein was guilty as charged, surely his suicide proves this?
I just do not think it is plausible that the allegations are true.

TrixieFranklin Sat 16-Nov-19 22:27:56


EleanorReally Sat 16-Nov-19 22:28:17

tbh i imagine an awful lot of people never intended to believe him in the first place

dontgobaconmyheart Sat 16-Nov-19 22:29:53

What are your suspicions of the site OP? confused - are you one of those annoying individuals that always needs to adjust the narrative if disagreed with, to make it seem like you are the only sane one in the lunatic asylum and too good for all of this before you flounce off to avoid healthy debate?

I often find that if you are in the minority to this extent, it's probably you. I'd save your support for people you actually know, not those who wouldn't piss on you if you were on fire and eye up any underage daughters you might have. The man is vile. One minute the images are photoshopped entirely and he has experts on it, next minute no sign of them but he just can't recall. He's a terrible liar. My support lies with those who won't win this because he is a member of the RF. Strength to them in dealing with the vulgar injustice of that.

Cornettoninja Sat 16-Nov-19 22:29:56

QEII’s boys keep making very poor judgements about whose company to keep.

The overwhelming ego that shone through just betrayed the fact this is a man who just cannot comprehend that his word would be treated with anything but utter acceptance. He either ignored advice or was incredibly badly advised to do that interview.

MarianaMoatedGrange Sat 16-Nov-19 22:30:02

Oh yes the 'suicide' hmm

PennyNotSoWise Sat 16-Nov-19 22:30:29

Goady McGoadyface.

Where is the healthy debate?

If you wanted that, you could have started one properly. Instead, you wrote 2 sentences and sat back to watch the froth.

IfIShouldFallFromGraceWithGod Sat 16-Nov-19 22:31:44

Suspicions of the site 🤔 pathetic

YouTheCat Sat 16-Nov-19 22:32:10

Yes, indeed, the 'suicide'.

Oh yes, YANBU because he stayed with a convicted paedophile because he was too honourable. Wtaf?!?

SaggySadSack Sat 16-Nov-19 22:33:57

Fergie, is that you?!

Grimbles Sat 16-Nov-19 22:34:05

You accept that Epstein was guilty as charged and support Andrew continuing his friendship with Epstein.


Moondancer73 Sat 16-Nov-19 22:34:06

Epstein's suicide? 🤣 you really think his death was suicidal? Hilarious

CharitySchmarity Sat 16-Nov-19 22:35:42

Prince Randy Andy is over 60.

He's 59.

Sunsoottitsoot Sat 16-Nov-19 22:36:02

I love that he claimed he doesnt sweat.

Dodithedog Sat 16-Nov-19 22:37:02

When I turned it on I was rooting for him. Sadly, even for a royalist like me, it was downright obvious he’s a big fat liar out to save his own skin. Very sad.

Gardai Sat 16-Nov-19 22:37:32

So OP, would you stay in the house of a convicted paedophile if you were a millionaire and could well afford a hotel ?
He wasn’t there for shits and giggles.

Puzzledandpissedoff Sat 16-Nov-19 22:38:02

Support a man who thinks it appropriate to describe a sex offender's actions as "unbecoming"?

Er, no

Printemps Sat 16-Nov-19 22:38:54

Epstein was convicted of sex crimes in a court of law and there is a photograph of Andrew with his arm around one of the young victims (scantily clad). The picture was taken at the time and the place and in the company that she says the events took place. I wonder what kind of evidence you would require to make her statement 'plausible'.

sweetiepy Sat 16-Nov-19 22:39:03

@Inspiralcarpetry Think you are being very unfair about his memory.
He did remember the exact date he took his daughter to Pizza Hut (or wherever) all those years ago!!

Muminabun Sat 16-Nov-19 22:39:32

The accuser is very credible, Andrew comes across really badly and always has. There is a rumour the French police want to question him re similar allegations to which he has refused. Why are the police not questioning him. Why did he visit the island so many times. Why was he seen waving girls off from Epstein’s London property. Anyone who thinks he is innocent I think is really in denial. I feel sick that taxpayers have paid for this mans lifestyle.

LadyLanka Sat 16-Nov-19 22:40:15

I think it is perfectly possible that the Duke of York was unaware of the goings on. It wasn't as if he were on frequent holidays with Epstein in Majorca or Ibiza.
The more militant amongst you appear to be ignoring the fact that I have not made any mention of the so-called allegations.

gamerwidow Sat 16-Nov-19 22:40:16

I support Andy too.
Who out of us hasn't been forced to stay with a convicted child rapist out of convenience.
It's only honourable not to make a fuss and risk causing child rapists any embarrassment by staying in a hotel.
It could happen to any of us,

Clearnightsky Sat 16-Nov-19 22:41:20

Does he need your support? After all, he's got 10,000 men.

Ha ha! grin very good.

OP you are goady. Why not ask the women victims how they feel about the royal seal of approval by association. I think their views are worth more than all of ours.

Grimbles Sat 16-Nov-19 22:41:42

Yes, of course Andrew had no idea Epstein was a convicted paedophile hmm
