Prince Andrew tried to broker crown property deal for Kazakh oligarch
Prince Andrew acted as a broker for a Kazakh oligarch who wanted to buy a London home from the Queen’s estate, documents released under the Freedom of Information Act have revealed.
The Duke of York’s office tried to secure a crown estate property near Kensington Palace for the oil and gas tycoon Timur Kulibayev at the same time as his marital home of Sunninghill Park was being sold to the billionaire for £3m over the asking price.
The duke was a government trade envoy at the time of the attempted deal for Kulibayev, son-in-law of the Kazakh president, Nursultan Nazarbayev. Its emergence is likely to fuel calls for further investigation into his dealings with the autocratic regime.
Prince Andrew is not a man of Royal integrity or standing. He has continually been involved in dubious financial dealings with men of equably dubious backgrounds. He has also been linked to various sexual criminal investigations and yet because of his royal title he always manages to escape whilst others fall on their swords. He has a very quick temper and throws tantrums if he doesn’t get his own way and by all accounts he treats the staff around him with appalling abuse if everything isn’t to his liking. I think it is about time that the powers that be in the royal household brought this pompous prince to heel once and for all because despite all the good and hard work the other royals are doing this crook is loose cannon and also a very dangerous man. As for his time in the Falklands war make no mistake is roll has been exaggerated way beyond anything he achieved, just like his life.
