Prince Andrew Was Courageous Not Rude

The headlines shout that Andrew was ”rude”.  The stories written below the headlines refute that.  

The word ‘rude’ came from an American diplomat who was surprised at Andrew’s honesty and openness in talking about how the world of big business actually works in practice.
It was diplomatic speak for ”this bloke’s giving the game away; and us diplomats who are paid to hide the truth will be put out of a job.”
The Belfast Telegraph carries a good report (Link below) .  Andrew is as big a one for leaking the truth as Wikileaks.

Maybe he was naive.  But he wasn’t rude.  His audience was a private one.  If anything I’d say he was courageous.

Belfast Telegraph – 

On the way out, one of them confided to the ambassador: ‘What a wonderful representative for the British people! We could not be prouder of our Royal Family.'”
The leaked (Wikileaks) cables also offer an insight into American views of the hierarchy in neighbouring Kazakhstan, where Prince Andrew has built cordial relations with President Nursultan Nazarbayev. In an April 2009 memo, the ambassador, Richard Hoagland, said: “Corruption is endemic among Kazakhstani officialdom.”
It was revealed earlier this year that Timur Kulibayev, the billionaire son-in-law of the Kazakh President, paid £15m for Prince Andrew’s Surrey mansion, Sunninghill Park, which had been on the market for a long period. The sum was £3m over the asking price.

That’s as may be.  But here is yet more evidence that the Royal family is involved in more than just an official role in international affairs.  They are in business and central banking, according the another American, the late journalist, Joan Veon, and are possibly some f the wealthiest people in the world – out of sight of any mere national governments, of course.

    I think the problem with the wikileaks revelations is that they’re being fed to us through the lefty filter of the BBC and The Guardian etc so are being spun to attack their enemies.
    It’s a bit like the student riots. We didn’t see any riots when Labour brought in tuition fees after promising not to. The tutors and the NUS backed up by Labour are all stirring up the easily brainwashed students that it’s all the nasty Tories.
