Regarding correspondent Stanley Brinker's defence of the Duke of York (CP, 25-02-22).

While acknowledging Mr Brinker’s right to his opinion regarding Prince Andrew’s way of dealing with his civil lawsuit, regardless of how the media reported the case, the general public are not stupid.

Referring to the prince ‘thoughtfully settling the lawsuit in order to distract from the jubilee celebrations’, I find that opinion utter rubbish.

Nobody can seriously believe that he would agree to pay that enormous sum of money to Miss Giuffre’s charity without having a more serious reason than that.

Finally regarding Mr Brinker’s suggestion that the legal expenses, lawyers fees etc: be paid out of the public purse, try asking the general public what they think and put my name at the top of the NO list please.
