It was a defense that would make Johnnie Cochran proud. In an exclusive BBC interview, Prince Andrew insisted that he could not have had sex with an underaged girl arranged by Jeffrey Epstein because he does not perspire and she referenced his “sweating all over me.” This ultimate “no sweat” response is unlikely to convince many given the infamous pictures of the Prince with his arm around Virginia Giuffre at the home of Epstein. It is bad enough to be considered criminal without adding comical in the eyes of your critics. Hence the New York Post headline “His Royal Dryness.”
Andrew told Emily Maitlis that the account of his sweating on the dance floor was the key flaws to prove his innocence:
“There’s a slight problem with, with, with, with the sweating/ Because I have a peculiar medical condition which is that I don’t sweat, or I didn’t sweat at the time … because I had suffered what I would describe as an overdose of adrenaline in the Falklands War when I was shot at. And I simply — it was, it was almost impossible for me to sweat. And it was only because I have done a number of things in the recent past that I am starting to be able to do that again . . . So I’m afraid to say there’s a medical condition that says I didn’t do it.”
He also said that the photo with Giuffre was likely faked because he is not a hugger: “I’m terribly sorry, but if I, as a member of the royal family, and I have a photograph taken — and I taken very, very few photographs — I am not one to, um, as it were, hug. Public displays of affection are not something that, that I do. So. That’s the best explanation I can give you.”
What? I don’t sweat or hug? That may be the most lame defense since Roy Moore claimed that he could not have pursued young girls because he turned down underaged prostitutes in Vietnam. It is certainly comforting to know that Andrew can perspire again, but there remains that other proclivity that remains in doubt.
Andrew, 59, eventually returned to the tried and true defense of having “no recollection” of meeting Giuffre.
He continues to refuse to testify under oath in the U.S. cases.

An embittered Prince Andrew was heard to be grumbling “Who died and made her Queen?” as he was packing up. 😄
It was interesting that Prince Andrew released a statement emphatically denying that he was intimate with any underage minors. The age of consent is 16 in UK, and 17 in NY. That was an interesting loophole.
The BBC interview is straight out of Monty Python.
Post Falklands with references to sweating profusely:
Maddog tweeted part of a newspaper article:
“A clip from the Dublin newspaper Sunday World in 2000 linking Andrew and Ghislaine Maxwell to a ‘hookers and pimps’ party…@POTUS
Care to comment Prince Andrew?”
“Craig Murray Retweeted Maddog
This article from 2000 about Andrew and Ghislaine partying makes two separate references to him “sweating” “profusely”.
Years after he was shot at in the Falklands, and not very long before he met Virginia Roberts.”
(The lies of the rich and famous…)
Get the guy on a treadmill. The proof is in the pudding.
Anonymous – if you listen to the interview, he undercuts the no sweating defense with a “I am now starting to sweat”
I’d forgotten that he was once called “Randy Andy.”
“The party prince: how Andrew got his bad reputation”
“The overwhelming consensus after the interview was that it was a PR disaster and had only resulted in Prince Andrew looking more guilty.
“It has since emerged that the Duke’s PR adviser quit two weeks ago after warning him not to do the interview.” -zerohedge link
You Must Acquit: Prince Andrew Advances Curious Perspiration-Based Defense To Epstein Allegations
Prince Andrew is a toad.
@Anon- Prince Andrew isn’t the only one sweating. Things are getting mighty warm in the House of Clinton.
“Prince ‘I-didn’t-party-or-do-PDAs’ Andrew is pictured doing plenty of both at wild parties on the French Riviera in 2007 (and he looks a wee bit sweaty too)”
Anonymous – Oppsie!!!
This is absurd said, “I do hope the commissioner of jurors in your area has seen to it that you’re never on the rolls.”
God knows you aren’t fit to sit on a jury, but you do love to pontificate.
You’re too senile to offer an opinion on anything, Diane.
And I don’t anything about ‘Diane’, but you’re obviously an old buffoon without a clue.
Unbeknownst to Prince Andrew and the others, it all began to unravel the moment Trump appointed Alex Acosta as his Secretary of Labor.
So Enigma and Ynot are right. Trump is the ONE, the Chosen, the One to whom the Oracle prophesied: Neo!
Justice is being done because of Trump. Pelosi should take note.
Craig Murray tweeted:
“I suspect the only true thing #PrinceAndrew said the entire interview was that he never pays for the drinks. Entire family of sponging leeches.”

There’s a clip that sums this up, but I’ll have to track it down:
“The problem was the fact that once he had been convicted, I stayed with him,” Andrew told the BBC in an interview that was scheduled to air on Saturday. “And that’s the bit that as it were that I kick myself for on a daily basis, because it was not something that was becoming of a member of the Royal family and we try and uphold the highest standards and practices and I let the side down, simple as that.”
Answering questions from the BBC Newsnight’s Emily Maitlis, Andrew said, “It was a convenient place to stay,” acknowledging in hindsight that it was “the wrong thing to do.”
“But at the time, I felt like it was the honorable and right thing to do,” Andrew added. “And I admit fully that my judgment was probably colored by my tendency to be too honorable, but that’s just the way it is.”
The following speaks to this point, perhaps: Craig Murray: “…Entire family of sponging leeches.”
Bill Grueskin tweet:
‘Interviewer: “But you were staying at the house of a convicted sex offender”
Prince Andrew: [Long sigh] “It was a convenient place to stay.”’
Or, perhaps more likely, the prince was simply trying to curry any remaining friendship with Convict Epstein in the hopes that he won’t embarrass the prince by publicly speaking the truth of Andrew’s improprieties. There is no Honor involved. It was simply a matter of covering one’s backside. “Tendency to be too honorable?” He sold his Honor to buy membership in Epstein’s child-rape club.
You’ve assumed what’s in dispute here.
The Prince says he doesn’t drink in public places. Ergo, he ‘never pays’ any tab. Ergo, his entire family never pays for anything. I do hope the commissioner of jurors in your area has seen to it that you’re never on the rolls.
I dare say that Craig Murray knows a little bit more about the royal family than “This is absurd x XV.”
The link that wasn’t posted earlier:
Actually, he’s a member of the British Deep State turned leftoid activist. Cue Mandy Rice-Davies.
Unlike TIA — who contributes nothing — and has likely contributed very little.
TIA sits in his armchair and spout nonsense, day after day.
One has to wonder if he ever takes a bottle to these little private gatherings. As for his stay with Epstein, there are plenty of lovely accommodations in NYC — lovely places with every “convenience.” With every convenience, and very “convenient.”
