Breaking News ! One of the blessings of getting older is that you suffer much less from FOMO. Also, given the current crisis, you suspect that nothing much is happening anywhere any more. And, if it is, you’re probably far better off staying well out of it. But when I was younger, my Fear of Missing Out was strong. I’d often be convinced that there was some incredible private party happening somewhere that was only accessible to super-cool, super-rich people. It turns out that I was right and wrong at the same time: there was a party going on accessible only to super-rich people, but it was far from cool and it was only incredible in its utter disgrace and depravity. Court documents relating to Ghislaine Maxwell’s upcoming trial were released on Friday, after her lawyers fought for weeks to keep them private.

(Yes, this is the same Ghislaine Maxwell who, just a week ago, was wished well by the president of the United States.) It is alleged that for the best part of 20 years she helped to coordinate what basically looks like a global, freewheeling orgy for the super-rich. The names of various famous people in Jeffrey Epstein and Maxwell’s orbit are already well known, but it’s still staggering to see them all spelled out: Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, Rupert Murdoch and lawyer (and Trump booster) Alan Dershowitz. At least some of these names travelled on Epstein’s private jets and on his private island and enjoyed his private favours. Assuming Maxwell lives long enough to get to court (and that’s no small assumption), the subject of who did exactly what to who, and where and when they did it, will likely drag on for many months of testimony.

Just a few weeks ago, on July 10, Maxwell’s lawyers stated that she had “no contact” with Epstein for “more than a decade”. Friday’s documents claim to show they were exchanging emails in 2015, when it’s alleged Epstein helped Maxwell draft a letter denying any involvement in his sex trafficking crimes. The letter itself is very Trumpian in that it makes a lot of noise and false allegations and basically screams about “fake news” while saying nothing of substance. In the letter, Epstein goes on to tell Maxwell she has “done nothing wrong” and she should “act like it”. Indeed, he went even further, saying: “Go outside. Head held high.

. Go to parties. Deal with it.” Read More Related Articles Mysterious UFOs spotted in the skies above Edinburgh That attitude reminded me of the words of Scott Fitzgerald, written nearly a century ago. “Let me tell you about the very rich,” Fitzgerald said. “They are different from you and me. They possess and enjoy early, and it does something to them, makes them cynical where we are trustful, in a way that, unless you were born rich, it is very difficult to understand.” One of the things the very rich and powerful count on is the stupidity and timidity of the little people. Well, hopefully no longer. Maxwell’s day in court is coming. Well, again the word “hopefully” might be applicable here. Because we all remember what happened to her boss, the man who urged her to go outside and party with her head held high. He managed to kill himself a year ago this month in prison, when the two guards who were watching him somehow fell asleep and did some “online shopping” at the same time the two cameras covering his cell both malfunctioned and later had their data erased by accident. And if you believe all of that, I have, as they say, a course at Trump University to sell you.

After Maxwell accidentally cuts her own head off while shaving her legs as she falls from a five-storey window into a pit of boiling oil.
