God Save The Duke
WikiLeaks cables: 'Rude' Prince Andrew shocks US ambassador | UK news | guardian.co.uk
Prince Andrew launched a scathing attack on British anti-corruption investigators, journalists and the French during an "astonishingly candid" performance at an official engagement that shocked a US diplomat.
Tatiana Gfoeller, Washington's ambassador to Kyrgyzstan, recorded in a secret cable that Andrew spoke "cockily" at the brunch with British and Canadian business people, leading a discussion that "verged on the rude".
During the two-hour engagement in 2008 at a hotel in the capital, Bishkek, Andrew, who travels the globe as a special UK trade representative, attacked Britain's corruption investigators in the Serious Fraud Office for what he called "idiocy".
He went on to denounce Guardian reporters investigating bribery as "those [expletive] journalists … who poke their noses everywhere".
I have been giving the wikileaks a good ignoring but a make an exception for this one. I think I owe the Duke an apology, it sounds as though he actually doing a decent job of promoting Britain whereas I thought he was just flying around on freebies. He certainly is better value than the lowlife scum he castigates and Miss Prissy Tatiana.
