Nobody Should Be Above the Law

Author Kirby Sommers starts a petition suggesting “nobody should be above the law” in the context of the Prince Andrew v Virginia Giuffre civil case

As we’ve said before, Kirby Sommers – the author of Ghislaine Maxwell: An Unauthorized Biography – is a crusading force and now, this weekend, she’s started a petition regarding the civil case between Virginia Giuffre and Prince Andrew.


Focusing her efforts this time on the suggestion that “nobody should be above the law,” not even the son of the Queen, Sommers quite rightly asks the judge in the case, Lewis Kaplan, to allow the course of justice to run rather than being dismissed.


It comes just as the Duke of York claimed Giuffre’s lawsuit “baseless” and as having caused him to become “the latest collateral damage of the Epstein scandal,” but ignores several key facts that the royal has to date avoided explaining. Amongst matters he has thus far failed to deal with are:


  • The photograph taken at the home of Ghislaine Maxwell featuring Virginia Giuffre – then known as Virginia Roberts – with Prince Andrew on 10th March 2001 has never been proven to be anything but genuine. Even, the alleged mucky madam’s brother, Ian, has described the setting of the image as “genuine.”
  • During Prince Andrew’s disastrous BBC interview with Emily Maitlis, he denied having even having met Roberts in spite of the fact that said photograph clearly showed to the contrary.
  • In addition, the duke’s claim that he did not go to Tramp nightclub that night and danced with the then Miss Roberts has been called into question by an independent witness, Shukri Walker.
  • Going further, if the non-sweating, Pizza Express loving royal would like to see this legal matter properly cleared up to the satisfaction of his alleged victim, himself and the general public also, he should face upto it rather than behaving like a guffawing, petulant child.


Today, we urge readers of The Steeple Times to sign the petition and we also suggest it is time for the Duke of York to stop “victim shaming,” man-up and finally head to America.

Presumably the image was taken by their paedophile mate Jeffrey Epstein and though the Duke of York has claimed it to be a fake, nobody has proven yet that it is anything other than a genuine image.
Launching the petition she started on Saturday 30th October 2021, the ‘Ghislaine Maxwell: An Unauthorized Biography’ author declared: “In every court case letters from the people who know the parties are sent to the judge. The attorneys use these letters as well as media coverage to support their stance. Your voice matters NOW more than ever. Please sign our Open Letter to Judge Kaplan.”
On Twitter also on Saturday, Kirby Sommers also stated: “For those of you who do not know. Human trafficking is illegal no matter the age of the person. Sexual human trafficking is illegal. Again, no matter the age of the person. The only way Virginia had to sue Prince Andrew as the Child Victims Act.”
The Duke of York’s November 2019 BBC interview with Emily Maitlis about the allegations against him concerning his friendship with croaked paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and alleged mucky madam Ghislaine Maxwell resulted in him becoming both a laughing stock and the loss of his royal roles. It brought shame on his family and turned him into an international embarrassment whose ability to be honest quite deservedly has been repeatedly questioned.
