Prince Andrew slammed over sex offender friend  By London correspondent Rachael Brown (March 8th,2011)


Britain'sPrince Andrew is facing growing calls to quit as the UK's unpaid trade ambassador over his ties with a convicted US sex offender and his hosting ofthe deposed Tunisian leader's son-in-law.

The prince, fourth in lineto the throne, has been criticised for his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein, aUS financier who has served a prison sentence for soliciting an underage girl for prostitution.

The 50-year-old prince's judgment has also been questioned over his meetings with Moamar Gaddafi's son,Saif al-Islam, and for entertaining the son-in-law of Tunisia's oustedpresident, Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali, at Buckingham Palace.

British prime minister DavidCameron has given his full backing to the prince in his role as trade envoy.

But behind closed doors at Downing Street, ministers reportedly believe one more serious incident willmake the prince's role untenable.

Monday's tabloid headlines on the story included "Prince of Sleaze" in the Daily Mirror and"Andrew: I won't quit over my pervert pal," in the Sun.

Chris Bryant, a member ofthe opposition Labour Party, said the government should get rid of PrinceAndrew immediately.

"They should be absolutely clear: 'We are going to dispense with his services'," he told BBC radio.

Sarah Ferguson, who divorced the prince in 1996, said he was a "first-rate man" who worked tirelessly for Britain.

"The duke is a man who does not know how to tell an untruth or behave dishonourably," she told the London Evening Standard.

Ms Ferguson admitted that she had accepted 15,000 pounds from Epstein to help pay off her debts, a move she described as a huge mistake.

Business leaders such as Peter Levene, chairman of the Lloyd's of London insurance market, also issued statements backing Prince Andrew.

The stories were a long wayfrom the gushing coverage the British media have reserved for Prince Andrew's nephew, Prince William, and fiancee Kate Middleton ahead of their wedding nextmonth.

Prince Andrew has long had astrained relationship with newspapers, who have printed photographs of him enjoying himself on yachts or sunbathing surrounded by topless women.

Hehas also been nicknamed 'Air miles Andy' for his use of publicly funded travel.
