Cue pics of a non partying Andy hugging and leering after females in the same time period.
And of him coming out of a nightclub pissed wet through with sweat :lol:

Now then as far as I know, in this country he has not committed any criminal offence by having sex with that girl, unless he knew she was being trafficked which would never be proven.
Not so much that as who he is Hobes. Proof and evidence are how our courts are run, but outside of them, public opinion is the biggest and most powerful jury of them all. In cases like this, lack of evidence can support guilt just as easily as innocence. None of it's anything new, history will tell that royalty and position have covered up many an "indiscretion" almost since time began. Then again, he may be entirely innocent. Only you and God really know the truth about anything.

He's a senior member of the royal family friends with a man convicted of procuring under-age prostitutes and who held parties on something known locally as "pedophile island". He continued that friendship after the friend had served jail time (he says he went to see him in person to break up with him and so if anything is too honourable), is accused of being with him while "massaged" by under-age girls, who was photographed in his 40s with a hand around a 17 year old girl who claims he sweatily slept with her and his defence is that he "can't sweat because of the Falklands". Also he definitely remembers he was in Pizza Express that night in 1991 anyway.

It doesn't have to be criminal to be "awful". I too would feel the need to travel halfway way around the world to break up with any noncey mates and would also stay with them while doing so.

Jaw-dropping cuntiness (even by their standards) by the Tories last night as they renamed their HQ Twitter feed "FactCheckUk" and started tweeting rebuttals to Corbyn as if they were an independent organisation. What a world we live in that this won't even be a story in two days.

I'm sorry if it looked in any way, shape or form that I was trying to make him look any better by referring to the criminal bit, I wasn't.

I must admit I do have a problem with some of this connected to the #metoo twaddle, are woman really admitting they are so fcukin' stupid? I mean actress meeting producer late at night on her Jack Jones, in his apartment/hotel room to discuss the movie or possible role? What about the parents of these girls Epstien was jetting all over the world? the girls their selves? Or again, are woman just admitting they are a bit thick?

Well that's exactly the problem there - TYhe fact that people consider them as thick for putting themselves in dangerous postions, like it's their fault.. It's not a woman's fault if she meets a man for a drink who's a sex offender. He shouldn't be a sex offender, so it shouldn't be an issue meeting him

Sorry, but rumours about these people were well doing the rounds, would you walk through one of the townships on the edge of Cape town after dark on your Jack Jones? Why not? Afterall using your analogy you shouldn't have anything to fear.

Some of the#metoo brigades already assume that any male is about to assault them even someone as reported the other week who had the cheek to tap one dozy cow on her shoulder to tell her the till was free because she had her head in her bloody phone, assault she screamed. Should have just shoved the docile bint out the way.

Braved the elements here to vote - not that it will make a huge difference in the tory stronghold of Mid Sussex. None of the tactical voters can decide which has more chance between labour and Lib Dem so the ‘get Boris out’ vote will be split. :| Still, at least Nicholas Soames has finally stepped down #gratefulforsmallmercies

None of them are exactly setting the world alight are they? I’d vote green if I thought it wasn’t a wasted vote.

Be interesting to see what the turnout is. A month or so ago, with the referendum in mind I imagine many were planning on not bothering. As it's got nearer its felt like a greater emphasis on parties getting their support out and folk deciding to jump one way or t'other

Turnout is expected to be higher than 2017 which was 70%

Can't say that people didn't care.
