There Has Been A Termination Of Service For A Police Officer

A police constable who only gave a charity stall 10 pence for Jaffa Cakes worth £1 has been fired for gross misconduct.

PC Chris Dwyer, 51, put money in the cash tin and took two Jaffa Cake packets being sold for 50 pence each.

A misconduct hearing was told that when a query was raised about underpayment he was found to have put in only two 5 pence pieces.

The stall at the police station in Halifax, West Yorkshire, was selling sweet treats, crisps, snacks and soft beverages for 50 pence each in January to pay for a charity trip to Uganda.

After PC Chris Dwyer’s visit, a co-worker raised concerns about underpayment.

A West Yorkshire Police disciplinary panel determined that PC Chris Dwyer provided fraudulent accounts and his testimony was misleading and an attempt to reduce his guilt.

PC Chris Dwyer, who spent almost 25 years in the navy before entering the West Yorkshire police in 2017, said any underpayment was an honest mistake, but he was given an immediate dismissal after a four-day misconduct hearing found him guilty of gross misconduct.

Detective Superintendent Mark Long, of West Yorkshire Police’s Professional Standards Directorate, said that the officer’s actions didn’t agree with the values of the organisation and he’d been dishonest when questioned.

He said that it was accepted that the items involved were of a pretty low value but that honesty and integrity were a fundamental quality of being a police employee and that an independent legally qualified chair had determined that his breach of the Standards of Professional Behaviour constituted gross misconduct and he’d been removed from the Force.

The most damaging thing here is that PC Chris Dwyer gave dishonest accounts, so it appears he was not only too cheap to pay for something on a charity stall, but he also tried to worm his way out of it by lying as well.

Of course, we can’t comment on his ability as a police constable, but as a human being he’s clearly lacking in every quality you would want in person, and for a few pennies saved he’s now lost his job and I just hope those Jaffa cakes were worth it.

But to be fair, wasn’t it a tad ridiculous sacking a police constable over a packet of Jaffa cakes. Perhaps he should have been reprimanded and made to pay the remainder of the money owing.

Although he was in a position of trust, and if he lied about such a trivial thing, can you imagine what else he could cover up, and perhaps there’s more to this story than the public is being told.

But sacking over Jaffa cakes now confirms that the United Kingdom has gone quite mad.

And the most important bit that’s been missed out is that he said that he made an honest mistake, and there’s no way anyone could prove that he didn’t make a genuine mistake. He could have genuinely believed it said 5 pence and not 50 pence, so unless he went round boasting he’d managed to pull a fast one to save himself some money there seems no reason not to believe he’d just made a mistake.

And if so, it’s hardly surprising he was evasive afterwards because he might have been embarrassed and worried that his error was going to cost him his job, which it obviously did, and I’m sure the panel who took four days to disbelieve him felt great about their decision.

To Save Christmas Pigs-In-Blankets, Boris Steps In

Hundreds of overseas butchers are set to be allowed into Britain to handle the UK’s Christmas meat crisis.

Ministers are expected to U-turn and create visas for foreign slaughterers in the run-up to the festive period as a huge cull of pigs gets started.

Boris Johnson’s government had endeavoured to play down the impact of the wasting of up to 100,000 pigs which faced being thrown away because they can’t be professionally butchered for sale.

It had earlier resisted calls for foreign workers to be permitted to make up for a shortfall in skilled British workers, but many Whitehall sources told a newspaper outlet that ministers have bowed to growing pressure from industry and are concluding plans to allow approximately 1,000 experienced workers to relieve UK abattoirs.

Farmers have been warning more than 100,000 pigs face destruction in the coming days because of a deficiency of butchers to process their meat.

The seriousness of the situation was underlined when a cull of approximately 4,500 pigs started.

Tory environment minister Lord Benyon informed the House of Lords that a decision was expected and the actions proposed would reflect the action taken in the poultry sector to deal with labour gaps.

The Government announced last month that 5,500 provisional visas would be issued to poultry workers and 5,000 to HGV drivers to prevent shortages in the run-up to Christmas.

Dr Zoe Davies, chief executive of the National Pig Association, said farmers were disturbed, and she said that as imagined this was hugely challenging for the farmers affected, and that some were having to use knackermen as they just couldn’t bear having to do it or ask their workers to do it.

The Prime Minister incensed the farming industry earlier this month by sweeping aside the crisis, saying the vast hecatomb (sacrifice) of pigs might not materialise.

Boris Johnson said the industry needed to improve pay and conditions to draw experienced workers already in Britain.

However, last night it seemed that visa rules would be relaxed as they already have been for poultry workers.

One possibility being considered is for less stringent English language rules, which industry leaders claim are making it impossible to recruit butchers from overseas.

The cruel cull of pigs involves using a so-called captive bolt gun, which shoots a retractable bolt through the head of the animal.

It’s very unusual to slaughter animals in this way on farms, let alone hundreds at a time, and it’s provoked concerns for the mental health and wellbeing of the teams involved.

Duncan Berkshire, a vet who’s involved in a steering group of experts working with pig farmers, said the grim process has started on three farms, each containing approximately 1,500 adult pigs.

He said the farmers involved were unwilling to go public, given the circumstances of the cull and concerns they might be targeted by activists.

He described the situation as the absolute last option, adding that UK farmers were proud to produce food and that they didn’t want to produce food that was going to go into the bin.

Duncan Berkshire said that it was disturbing for everyone concerned because these were big pigs and they needed to be restrained and that they needed people who were trained to do that properly.

He said welfare was important and they didn’t want any suffering up to the point of death.

The Tory government granting visas for workers from abroad, due to their self inflicted shortages of workers, is evidence that Brexit, including ending Freedom of Movement has failed.

And no matter what, these beautiful intelligent pigs will be slaughtered, and the irony of it all is that Brexit Britain is now begging immigrants to come over to England, simply because our government won’t fork out the money to train our unemployed to do the job.

The problem is that the government is so incompetent they didn’t do any research before it made key decisions, and if they don’t train their own people to do the necessary jobs then clearly they’re going to need foreign labour, and of course, it’s more affordable to take on foreign labour that it is to train our own in this country.

The point is, we shouldn’t be relying on foreign labour in the first place, and that’s what needs to be sorted out.

Another Four Energy Companies May Go Out Of Business This Week

Four more energy suppliers could collapse this week amid rising wholesale energy prices leaving thousands of homes facing higher bills, and according to Sky News, Ofgem could announce, after the watchdog warned last week that more companies are in danger of going bust.

Many British suppliers have stopped trading in the past few weeks as prices reached record highs and tariff caps hit smaller firms striving to keep up with growing prices.

The Sky News report said that at least four suppliers were in discussions with Ofgem on Tuesday about entering the regulator’s Supplier of Last Resort system, where customers of a failed energy company’s are passed onto a competitor.

Ofgem refused to comment on the report.

Wholesale gas prices have soared in recent months as economies reopen from COVID 19 lockdowns and the great demand for liquefied natural gas in Asia drove down supplies to Europe.

Some twelve British energy suppliers have now collapsed this year, affecting more than 2 million customers.

Fighting to cope with record gas prices, nine folded in September, including Enstroga, Igloo Energy and Symbio Energy.

Households attached to failed companies will be put into a rescue regime which will involve Ofgem hunting for a new supplier to take them on, and while there’s no chance that their gas or electricity supplies will be cut off, they will be shifted to tariffs which are expected to be about £400 a year higher.

Under the supplier of last resort system, outstanding credit balances owed to current and previous customers will be paid and households transferred will be protected by the energy price cap, but customers who were on the lower fixed price deals, signed before the gas price increase, were informed that bills could jump by hundreds of pounds.

So far 1.7 million homes have been abandoned by energy companies which have now collapsed and thousands more could be plunged into the same situation if four more companies fold this week.

Earlier this month, more than 230,000 households have been moved to E.on Next after the energy supplier picked up the pieces from three failed competitors in the sector.

Regulator Ofgem said it had appointed E.on Next to take on consumers who were once on the books of Enstroga, Igloo Energy and Symbio Energy.

Between them, the three companies had 233,000 customers.

They will all be changed over by E.on and can proceed to use their gas and electricity as before.

The thing is, whether these companies go bust is pointless because all gas and electricity bills are going to be more expensive, it won’t matter who you’re with.

It’s that pesky global reset thing again, where the peasants freeze to death, especially the elderly, whilst the elite lounge in warmth and comfort. Talk about going back to the dark ages again, but these elites should check their history because it really didn’t end so well, but it really will be a choice between eat or heat for many, and when energy companies amend your direct debit payments be prepared for a huge shock, and this is blatant profiteering.

And this great reset appears to be marketed by using the motto ‘Build Back Better’ and ‘Green Cheap Clean Energy’, but this so-called green energy is neither affordable nor clean and is neither reliable nor efficient.

And our incompetent Prime Minister is off on holiday, exercising his leisurely pursuits at a 25K a week villa, while the rest of us have a massive energy crisis hovering over our heads – Nero really does fiddle while Rome burns.

Thatcher’s Hometown Has Yet To Build A Statue In Her Honour

Today would have marked Margaret Thatcher’s 96th birthday, but enthusiasts can’t pay their respects at a statue in her home town of Grantham because the 10-foot plinth meant to display it remains empty.

It comes more than two years after planners approved the figure, and the Lincolnshire town agreed to honour its most distinguished daughter with the £300,000 bronze work by Douglas Jennings in 2019 after Westminster councillors vetoed plans to stand it in Parliament Square.

But such is the division in opinion over the Iron Lady’s legacy, even in the town where she lived in a flat above her father’s grocery shop, an official unveiling date is yet to be announced, and some Grantham residents are now questioning if it would be better for the plinth to be left empty.

Factory manager, Duncan Attwood, 48, said that the plinth had been empty for so long now, with fencing all around it, that he believes that people are starting to wonder if the statue will ever go up at all and that if it’s going to cost loads of money to protect the statue, then it might not be worth putting up in such a public place because it wouldn’t be guarded night and day.

Margaret Thatcher was born on October 13 1925 and spent her childhood in the Lincolnshire market town before heading off to Somerville College, Oxford, at the age of 18 to study chemistry.

The argument about how or even whether Margaret Thatcher, who died aged 87 in April 2013 after suffering from a stroke, should be placed in Grantham has been raised for approximately two decades.

Ian Selby, a former town mayor, had previously called for a vote to ultimately determine if the town wanted the statue, with the unveiling of it expected to draw fierce protests.

Local officials also fear the statue will become a regular rallying point for demonstrations and could even be targeted for destruction or removal attempts, as was observed when a mob tore down a statue to Bristol slave trader Edward Colston.

The fears led to a 10-foot high plinth being erected to display the £300,000 sculpture by Douglas Jennings, on the advice of Lincolnshire police.

Despite the potential for damage, it was originally hoped the long-awaited Thatcher statue would be unveiled by a big Tory name in the Autumn of last year, but those plans were scuppered by the pandemic.

I never did like Margaret Thatcher solely because she was Conservative – as a person, she was probably a very nice lady, and clearly, she was very well-liked by many people, and then others couldn’t stand her, and if Grantham wants a sculpture of her, then they should have one.

However, if it’s then vandalised and the perpetrator is found, then they should have their backside whipped because we need proper application of law and discipline in this country – not because it’s a statue of Margaret Thatcher, it could be any statue, so voting would be a very good idea, and once decided then that should be the end of it with no whining or moaning.

The Rolling Stones Cancel ‘Brown Sugar’ Over Slavery Lyrics

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards have announced the Rolling Stones will quit playing hit tune Brown Sugar, amid discomfort about the 50-year-old classic’s references to slavery.

The group, which is currently on the road for a 13 date US tour, haven’t played Brown Sugar, one of their most recognisable tunes, since kicking off in St Louis on September 26.

According to Rolling Stones magazine, the 1969 song has been a staple of their live show since it came out 50 years ago, and is the second most played tune in their inventory after Jumpin’ Jack Flash, with 1,136 known performances.

The last time the Stones played it live was August 30, 2019, at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.

Asked about the song’s absence from their recent setlists, they said they had chosen to give the song a break.

Mick Jagger said that they’d played Brown Sugar every night since 1970, so they thought they would take that one out for now and see how it goes, but that they might put it back in.

Keith Richards, who penned the number with Mick Jagger during a 1969 recording session at the famed Muscle Shoals studio in Alabama, said he was taken aback by the recent discomfort about the lyrics, since it was always a grotesque story about slavery, rape and sexual violence.

Keith Richards, 77, that he was attempting to figure out with the sisters quite where the beef was, and that didn’t they realise that the song was about the horrors of slavery? And he said that they were trying to hide it and that at moment he didn’t want to get into conflicts with all this nonsense.

But he was hoping that they’ll be able to resurrect the babe in her glory somewhere along the road.

The song has been controversial from the start, and the ensemble has frequently attempted to tone down the lyrics.

It was formerly titled Black P****, but Mick Jagger decided before releasing it that the name was too nitty-gritty.

The original phrasing was Brown Sugar, how come you taste so good? Ah, got me feelin’ now for brown sugar, just like a black girl should.

The band, in later recordings, exchanged the words black girl for young girl.

Mick Jagger explained in an interview back in 1995 that he was uncomfortable with the lyrics.

Although there doesn’t seem any point in not playing the song now, it’s been going for 50 years, and I’m sure countless people will still carry on playing the song, and they will play it loud, it’s called Freedom of Speech.

Sometimes we have to play songs to understand history and we shouldn’t glaze over history to understand the past, and we need those first-hand accounts before it’s too late.

But everyone’s being kept on their toes, and that when people open their mouths they should be mindful not to say anything offensive, and what better and quicker way to do this than quelling the arts, music, cinema, statues and literature.

And erasing the past creates a future built on nothing but deception and delusion. You can rip down the statues, change the lyrics of every song, but history is history whether right or wrong.

However, the Rolling Stones are getting a tad old now, and perhaps they should change their band name to the Strolling Bones, but slavery is the last thing I would have thought about when hearing this magnificent song.

But people seem to want to cancel history, cancel movies, cancel songs, cancel words, cancel food et cetera, but history will always remain because we can’t change that.

Make Your Christmas Gift Purchases Early!

Millions of Britons have been urged to order gifts for Christmas now to avoid disappointment because of delays at Britain’s choked ports where containers are piled high and ships are being diverted away due to a lack of HGV drivers.

Experts have warned the crisis won’t be solved until well into 2022 and will lead to gaps on shelves throughout the festive season with shipping boss Peter Wilson advising people to purchase their goods for the festive season promptly.

The most popular toys, games consoles, smartphones, white goods as well as chocolate and even Christmas trees are predicted to be in short supply this December with one shipping boss stating that they didn’t want to sound like a Grinch but there were going to be gaps on shelves this Christmas.

Britain’s busiest container port, Felixstowe, has become seriously overcrowded to the point that Maersk, the world’s biggest container shipping company, is diverting its large vessels away from the United Kingdom to Rotterdam because the dockside is full and there aren’t enough truck drivers to pick up and transport fully loaded containers and return the empty ones.

Containers at the Suffolk port are taking up to ten days to be put on to trucks instead of the normal three days, while large ships are having to wait up to a week after arriving off the UK coast to dock and unload.

Peter Wilson, managing director at Cory Brothers shipping agency, said problems affecting shipping and transport was a global problem but added the United Kingdom had a significant pinch point around HGV drivers and the demand on them to move goods from the ports.

He told BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme that it was a significant problem for the United Kingdom, and asked if it will affect Christmas, he said it had the potential but emphasised that the supply chain would not fail in the United Kingdom, adding that customers should be sensible and think ahead, plan properly, and order Christmas good and items that they want promptly to ensure that they have them.

Mr Wilson said it was a potential that some items might not be available nearer to Christmas, and when asked what items were most at risk of that, he said that it was a real mix and that they import so much into the United Kingdom by container on shipping lines, so it’s from white goods to Christmas toys, and that included food goods with this as well, so it could be a real mixed bag of all items.

The secret to purchasing online is to look at the item location before buying because anything that suggests several weeks to arrive is likely to come by boat, and it doesn’t take too much brainpower to figure that one out.

And whether this is to do with Brexit or not, we need to stop bleating on about it continually and find a solution and crack on, or go without – think of the money we will all save.

Or is this just another attempt to get people panic buying again? And I do hope that people remember that Santa isn’t real.

Parents should be spending time with their kids and families at Christmas instead of making it all about the presents. Lots of food, Christmas music and being silly, that’s the spirit of Christmas.

And it seems that COVID and petrol fears have run their course, now it’s time for something new.

What we should be doing is getting back to the true meaning of Christmas, with less commercialisation, which wouldn’t be a bad thing – charity shops are chock-full of toys and games et cetera.

Many Children With Colds Are Being Told To Stay Home, But Is This Right?

Scientists have suggested that thousands of children with the sniffles may wrongly be being told to stay at home over concerns they have COVID.

Secondary school children are asked to take two lateral flow tests per week. If they test positive, they must stay at home until they receive a result from a gold standard PCR swab.

Latest Test and Trace (T&T) statistics reveal 18,930 of the 615,000 rapid swabs taken by pupils in the week ending September 29 came back positive.

Of those, 13 per cent, or 2,053 were either negative or voided when followed up with a PCR.

The proportion of children being incorrectly told they have COVID by the devices has doubled in a month.

It’s prompted health chiefs to start a probe, with the scientific community now debating whether the rise is actually down to the resurgence of colds.

Experts have suggested the heavy mucus samples from children who test positive may be skewing the accuracy of the swabs.

Gaming tests to get time off school and faulty LFDs have also been suggested as likely factors behind the rise, and the latest Test and Trace data revealed there were 614.407 lateral flow swabs carried out by secondary school pupils in the last week of September, the most up to date data available.

Approximately 13 per cent of the positive results were incorrect (2,053 came back negative or void out of 15,916 positives that were followed up with PCRs).

For example, the figure stood at 8 per cent the week before (1,112 out of 13,709).

In the first week of September, six per cent of school children (213 out of 3,314) received false positives.

Dr Susan Hopkins, the chief medical adviser of the UK Health Security Agency said that they’ve been made conscious of some areas reporting positive (lateral flow) test results with subsequent negative PCR tests and that they were looking into the matter.

There have been numerous anecdotal reports of children testing positive with LFDs, but then getting a negative result from PCRs.

Dr Kit Yates, a mathematician at the University of Bath and member of Independent SAGE, tweeted that officials were saying the false positives were likely down to colds and heavy mucus samples.

He said PHE, a now-defunct body replaced by the UKHSA advising schools that lateral flow test positives followed by PCR negatives are likely because of colds and heavy mucus samples.

But the sad fact is that because of all of this, babies are now having issues with reading faces as it’s been over a year of people wearing face masks, while we watch couples making cooing sounds at their baby, with both parents wearing masks.

Wearing a face mask is no longer mandated, so why bother? It’s not like MPs are still wearing them, and neither PCR nor lateral flow tests have a high rate of accuracy, yet we still appear to be using them.

We should be getting back to normal now, and it seems that we’re doing more harm than good doing these tests, especially children, with no symptoms, and it’s become insane because it’s all about keeping fear going.

The thing is you can enter the serial number into the app and claim a positive without even taking the test, you can also claim a negative in the same way, and now people are saying that some drinks that we drink can get a positive test.

So, if you’re feeling a little unwell, you take a lateral flow test which comes out negative and then you go ahead and take the PVR test which comes out positive, but then out of curiosity take another PCR test a couple of days later which is then negative, which has happened.

Up Grit Creek, We Go!

Britain’s roads could be more dangerous than usual this winter because of a possible shortage of gritter drivers.

Local authorities across the country are thought to be in dire need of people capable of driving the huge salt spreading lorries to keep highways clear in poor weather.

Whereas before councils could use contracted staff from other sectors, the continuous HGV driver deficit has meant councils can’t fill vacancies for drivers, according to a newspaper outlet.

Last month it was announced that 18 councils had to suspend their bin collections after a driver deficit meant lorries couldn’t get out on the roads.

According to the Road Haulage Association, the UK shortfall in HGV drivers was estimated to stand at 100,000.

The government is running an HGV training scheme skills boot camp, which hopes to quickly train 5,000 drivers.

Councillor David Renard, the transport spokesperson for the Local Government Association, said that while most councils have been able to keep services going, some may discover that their gritting services are affected in the same way that some have seen waste collection services affected.

He warned that improving wages for drivers in the private sector will only make the situation worse, as councils will be unable to match their pay.

He added that councils are keen to work with Government and partners to support more training for these demand sectors. However, this was a lengthy process and wouldn’t alleviate the short term pressures on frontline services.

Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary Jim McMahon said that they were facing a perfect tornado of empty shelves, dry forecourts and services not delivered thanks to the Conservative’s failure to prepare for or even acknowledge the scale of the crisis.

It comes as Britain faces an emerging winter of discontent from a series of continuous crises, as soaring gas prices have been hitting consumers as well as businesses, with some energy-intensive producers struggling to stay open, and the boss of the company that makes Heinz Baked Beans said people must get used to more expensive food costs across the board.

Miguel Patricio, chief executive of Kraft Heinz, said the food colossus was raising costs around the globe after growing demand coupled with higher energy prices had driven global food prices to a ten year high.

Miguel Patricio told the BBC that consumers would have to get used to spending more, although it was up to the food industry to try to reduce those increases.

But there are a number of people out there that think this is nothing more than scaremongering, and now people are arguing about left and right, and different masks on the same face were designed to have us fighting amongst ourselves, meanwhile, these manufacturers are the divisions that are laughing at us all.

And this is just good news until there is no news, and newspaper outlets have taken this to heart.

In an imaginary world, it would be better if there was a deficit of extravagant politicians. At least they then couldn’t take from the public purse.

This is all rather odd because surely not all our drivers were from the EU, and millions decided to stay, but suddenly everything is coming to a standstill, but then stories are designed to create panic, just like toilet rolls, fuel and COVID.

There will definitely be a lack of media readers shortly, as most people are getting sick of this nonsense, and it’s getting tiresome.

Now people will be stockpiling grit for the winter as well, and on their list will be their toilet paper stash because some people will be so grateful that they all got the heads up from the media.

Boris and Carrie Are Staying At An Exclusive Estate While On Vacation In Marbella

Boris Johnson is taking a sunshine break thousands of miles from the problems overwhelming Britain at a £25,000 a week luxury hideaway, which is owned by one of his ministers.

Spanish media reported that the Prime Minister and his growing family are staying at Tory peer Zac Goldsmith’s home in the hills above the Costa del Sol.

Lots of security officials and police movements had been detected around the property after Boris Johnson’s trip was reported by a newspaper outlet and other newspapers.

Boris Johnson’s foreign holiday, his first since before the pandemic, is expected to be seized on by critics, who will point out that he’s left the country amid a fuel emergency and with families facing a predicted winter of discontent, surging energy prices and stock deficits.

However, it’s hoped some time in the expensive Spanish hillside hideaway will give him a chance to recharge, and residents of the charming village of Benahavis said the Prime Minister’s visit had become the talking point amongst locals.

Farmer Pedro Benares told a newspaper outlet that for sure Boris Johnson is staying up at the house and that he didn’t know when he arrived but everyone in the village was chatting about it.

He said that it’s a very big house and very private but they have to drive in and out.

The estate, known as Torres Tramores, is a brief drive from the picturesque village of Benahavis and has its own helipad to make sure VIP holidaymakers can come and go without being noticed.

The main house is set over three levels and can sleep up to 13 people. It also includes a two-bedroom apartment with separate access.

There’s also a slightly smaller dwelling that sleeps up to 10 people and includes five en-suite bedrooms which can be rented separately.

Princess Diana is rumoured to have stayed at the posh estate, set in over 600 acres of woodland, after her divorce from Prince Charles.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, then a professional cricketer, was pictured on his 1995 honeymoon at the estate with his now ex-wife Jemima Goldsmith, Zac Goldsmith’s sister.

Boris Johnson has not been pictured at the property, and it’s not known if he has left the estate since arriving on Friday with his expecting wife Carrie, 33, and their one-year-old son Wilfred, but it does look like Boris is just putting his feet up before he fashions a long dark winter for us.

And there’s nothing in Boris Johnson’s repertoire that even hints at repair or control. It’s the politics of attention-grabbing mayhem to make us think how much we need a great supreme leader with a circus act and a sense of humour – something will come along to fix everything until we all realise that it won’t.

To be honest, we wouldn’t have missed him if we didn’t know he was on vacation, just like when the fuel business began, not in sight until there’s a good news story problem, and his going on holiday is extremely distasteful, given the difficulties we have in the United Kingdom, and he should be here sorting out this mess.

Some leader we have, and in one of the most difficult times this past 40 years, he leaves all this debris behind him to enjoy himself – I wish we could all do the same.

He is the worst Tory party leader ever and roll on the election because we certainly need a leader with some common sense and forward-thinking.

The Royals Close The Door On Andrew

It’s been alleged that Prince Andrew will not return to public life after Charles, Edward and Anne closed the door on him and William branded him a threat to the royal family.

Scotland Yard is also reported to have spoken to the Duke of York’s sexual assault accuser Virginia Giuffre over allegations she was raped and sexually assaulted by Andrew when she was 17.

The royal has come under intense scrutiny over the claims and his association with paedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein.

Andrew, who’s not facing any criminal charges, categorically refutes Virginia Guiffre’s allegations against him and is thought to be keen to make a return as a working royal.

However, according to sources close to him, Prince William sees his uncle as a threat to the Royal Family and doesn’t plan to let him return to public life.

The 39-year-old, who’s second in line to the throne, is said to have been involved in crisis talks with his family, over the decision to suspend Andrew from public duty.

According to a newspaper outlet, there was no way in the world Andrew is ever coming back because the family will never let it happen, and another source said that William was no fan of his Uncle Andrew.

Another source was cited saying that Prince William was triggered by his uncle’s perceived ungracious and ungrateful attitude towards his position, which Willam considers a risk and a threat to the family.

A newspaper outlet said that any hint that there wasn’t gratitude for the institution, anything that could influence anyone in the public to believe that senior members of the royal family weren’t thankful for their position, William believes is really dangerous. However, a newspaper outlet was told that Buckingham Palace wasn’t commenting on the matter.

Talking to a newspaper outlet, a source said that nine months ago, Charles, Anne and Edward had a meeting, a summit, and agreed there was no way back for Andrew.

Virginia Roberts, who now goes by her married name of Giuffre, was last night reported to have been questioned by police after she filed a civil suit in the US alleging that she was forced to have sex with the Prince on three separate occasions by convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

A newspaper outlet reported earlier this year that Virginia Giuffre had begun legal action in the US. Andrew, now 61, has always vehemently refuted her allegations and any wrongdoing.

Suffice to say, Prince Andrew is finished and it’s best that he just fades away, and let’s face it, he has enough money to fade away on, and I’m sure he will do just fine.

Although it’s not good that Andrew has been hiding behind his family, and Prince William needs to call out Andrew, who just appears to be trying every legal manoeuvre in the book so that he doesn’t have to be questioned or face a judge.

Is Prince Andrew a threat to the Royal Family, or is he a threat to the Royal gravy train? Because let’s face it, they’re all in it for themselves.

Of course, this is all to do with public affairs, but privately I doubt any parent would completely close the door to their child and grandchildren.

But this is too little too late, and the only reason this is happening is because of all the public outrage, and does our monarchy have a place in 21st century Britain, or is it all too outdated, and a circus that should be wound up when the Queen has departed?
