Trial starts today.

Will it be a damp squib & she'll just deny everything or will she explosively live up to all the rumours & spill the beans on Clinton, trump, Andrew, The Rich & Famous?

Even with all that poison & rope that she was mysteriously sent..
Still, at least Andrew's 'sweating condition' has been cured.

What are the chances of a deal being done behind the scenes where she trades a light sentence for keeping quiet about certain individuals?

I think she'll just deny everything. Is the evidence against her that strong?

I can see the prosecution.....

Is it true that... these parties had young pretty women at them that, for reasons we find objectionable and don't understand, liked to hang around with much older men who were millionaires ...and is it also true that, after failing to land a much older millionaire, these same young women felt a level of regret that has metamorphised into 'exploitation'?

I've not really seen much else in the way of 'evidence' just that she 'enabled' whatever may or may not have gone on.

We'll see what the trial brings forth!

Child trafficking is a 150 billion dollar industry with almost a million kids a year being reported missing.

Crazy we hear so little about it...

One place I worked at there was a woman who was admin for CID or similar. She was worn out by some of the horror stories she had to deal with regarding child trafficking and worse on a daily basis. And your so right, why is nothing really said about this?

I concur. My Brother in law was a skipper in a Met CIAT unit and was seconded to the specialist crime units dealing with trafficking/paedophile gangs for the last few years. I think it just wore him down, the amount of stuff he had to see and deal with. He joined way before he had kids and just couldn't do it any more now their little 'uns are here. He's back in 'standard' CID now.

Perhaps, as with Jimmy Savile and Cyril Smith, there are enough people involved who have the power to keep a lid on it.

Thirded. My old PT was a DS in the Met. Day after day looking at videos on seized laptops and servers takes its toll. Interestingly though I know a DI in the fatal traffic incident investigations team. She has seen all sorts, but it's a job for life until you can't take any more, at which point you have to put in for a transfer.

Apparently it's because Hilary Clinton is keeping the lid on it.

The first woman to give evidence claimed that she was 14 when Epstein coerced her into having sex, and Maxwell participated in other acts while the girl was still 14.

You can try to dress that up as the girls fault if you want, but luckily most people aren't that weird.

Exactly, it's all about the clientele. - UK politics, British showbusiness & Hollywood have been involved in systematic paedophile rings for decades.

A quick google of Brian Harveys claims about what he saw going on years ago in a secret vault in Londons Red rooms with Ghislaine and Epstein tells you these are some of the sickest (richest) people on the planet. - Teenage girl claims are the glossy version to play the whole thing down, I doubt the most severely impacted victims in this are still with us to tell the tale.

The Hilary Clinton claims have been rolled out for years. - Weirdly enough Epstein had this picture hanging on a wall in one of his mansions that the Clintons would visit annually.

Image

This was always going to be a cover-up.

One of the jurors involved in the "missing" video of Epstein's first suicide attempt is now on the prosecuting lineup. - They have already ordered a media wide gagging order and declared some of the accusations or too sensational & "impure" to be read out at the hearing.

It's all about protecting the money men.

‘Young women’? We’re talking about young girls here. There’s a big difference so why downplay things Eton?

One of the only times you and me have been aligned in our views is with regards to the wholesale, systematic abuse of young girls by groups within the Muslim community. Tell me if I’m wrong, but I suspect that there will be a long, long wait before you type similar, down-playing words about (before the verdicts are in) muslims accused of exploiting and raping underage girls.
