Ques­tions over An­drew dodged

Scottish Daily Mail - - News -

BOTH lead­ers dodged ques­tions about the Prince An­drew scan­dal.

Boris John­son and Jeremy Cor­byn de­flected ques­tions in the de­bate by say­ing the fo­cus should be on sym­pa­thy for Ep­stein’s vic­tims.

Asked whether the monar­chy was fit for pur­pose, Mr John­son said: ‘The in­sti­tu­tion of monar­chy is be­yond re­proach’, and Mr Cor­byn said it ‘needs a bit of im­prove­ment’. Asked if Prince An­drew is be­yond re­proach, Mr Cor­byn said: ‘Be­fore we dis­cuss Prince An­drew I think we should dis­cuss the vic­tims that are there be­cause of what Ep­stein was do­ing.’ He added that ‘no­body should be above the law’.

Mr John­son said ‘all our sym­pa­thies’ should be with the vic­tims, adding: ‘The law must cer­tainly take its course.’
