Only the Sun and Daily Mirror have it right for headlines which is basically The Queen sacks Prince Andrew.

Daily Mail describes it as Queen ordered him to step down but then further down in big bold letters Queen Sacks Andrew

Some of us would say Mum sacks son or Son sacked by Mum

Prince Andrews Royal Communications letter states I have asked Her Majesty if I may step back from public duties for the foreseeable future and she has given her permission.

What bollocks that is. YOUR MUM SACKED YOU is the correct translation of your Royal Communication.
So explain!!! Mummy and son being seen riding, and quietly chatting around Windsor Great Park.. shortly after these statements came out..The Royals run with their own rules. The Queen will be furious that this has all 'leaked out.' through Epstein... That she didn't know.? hmmmm.. No way.. Andrews her favourite boy

Ok, fair enough on Weinstein, but I don't think the media can be written off entirely. They generally seek to uncover the truth in celebrity scandals.

You mean as in the case of Lord Brammell, Leon Brittain ,Cliff Richard, Proctor, The famous DJ Gambachini and many others? (I apologise to these people If my spelling of their names not correct!) They may, as you say, generally seek to uncover the truth. I'm somewhat more cynical; Is it not to sell papers? Investigative journalism is one thing. What is happening these days is, in my view, nothing more than witch hunts designed to sell papers.

There was an interesting piece in the DM about the photo, and the way it made it into the public domain. Apparently, four years ago, Miss Roberts was tracked down in Australia by the press and happened to show it to the reporter, rather than specifically presenting it with her claim of sexual abuse. PA questions the veracity of the photo, but an uncropped version adds to its veracity. You wonder why PA would cast doubt on the photo, what motive he might have?

Face facts: Give me some to face. Has he been accused of anything illegal?

Why are you so keen to defend him? Are you some super-royalist? Surely the reasonable position is that he may have further questions to answer and may indeed have been involved, rather than assert that he is not guilty of anything?

And you didn't respond to my question but I didn't think you would. As for defending prince Andrew I'm not. I'm defending the principle of innocent until proven guilty. Do you not agree with that? Two questions (if you include the one you ignored)
