Prince Andrew scandal may end in exile, just like his great uncle Edward VIII – David Behrens

What a small step from a Falklands war hero to this disgrace. Jeffrey Epstein is dead and has escaped justice, so a scapegoat has to be found. Nothing less than the destruction of Prince Andrew’s reputation is going to satisfy.
