The Kāpiti Independent Editor reports this was a close-run race, but royalty won out once again.
He says the award must go to the Randy Old Duke of York, Prince Andrew.
Top marks too for utter shamelessness.
When Emily Maitlis (BBC Newsnight) asked: ‘So if Virginia Roberts ( the 17-year-old in the photo) is watching this interview, what is your message to her?
Prince Andrew: ‘I don’t have a message for her because I have to have a thick skin. ‘
‘If somebody is going to make those sorts of allegations then I’ve got to have a thick skin and get on with it but they never happened.’
Emily: ‘For the record, is there any way you could have had sex with that young woman or any young woman trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein in any of his residences?
The Duke must have sex ‘with somebody’
Duke: ‘No and without putting too fine a point on it, if you’re a man it is a positive act to have sex with somebody.
‘You have to have to take some sort of positive action and so therefore if you try to forget it’s very difficult to try and forget a positive action and I do not remember anything.
‘I can’t, I’ve wracked my brain and thinking oh… when the first allegations, when the allegations came out originally I went well that’s a bit strange, ‘
I don’t remember this and then I’ve been through it and through it and through it over and over and over again and no, nothing. It just never happened.’
