Mosley hit by further sex allegations

The News of the World has published a stack of fresh allegations against Max Mosley this morning.

The newspaper is clearly not concerned about Mosley’s declaration that he will sue them. In a “tell-all” interview with one of the prostitutes (a typical tabloid tactic) it specifically targets Mosley’s defence that his now infamous bondage session with several call girls had a Nazi theme.

This was an entirely predictable move by the newspaper and is further proof that Mosley must step down from his role as FIA president to spare Formula 1 more embarrassment while he works to clear his name.

  1. It may be gutter journalism but even if there are no Nazi conortations, Max was pretty stupid for enacting out a German prison/ torture scene (of which there is no doubt if you read the transcripts) … why wouldn’t you just act out an English dungeon scene? Why German?

    And as for why German? 2 of the prostitutes were German, so why not talk in their own language so Max’ desires can be more adequately met?

    @Rohan:"And as for why German? 2 of the prostitutes were German"According to the NOTW, he also spoke German to the three English-speaking prostitutes, as well as speaking in English with a fake German accent

    Four out of the six F1 car manufacturers, including the largest car manufacturer in the world, want him out.  Bahrain asked him not to even visit their country while they host the F1.  Numerous motorsport clubs from around the world have asked him to leave.  If he can’t meet any of these people, if he is persona non grata with all these organisations, then he cannot function as President of the FIA.  It is as simple as that, he must go and the sooner the better for motorsport.

    On this topic, the blog is just as bad as the News of the World.  First they pay someone to back up their story and essentially retell it then make up the some tenuous conclusions which insult the intelligence of anyone who reads it.  By posting a link and agreeing with they’re conclusions and referring to this article as "further proof" you are advocating the newspaper articles and sexposes (typo but im leaving it in…) into private lives should be used in order to remove people from positions of authority.

    Imagine of Max Mosely was found to be gay or bisexual.  In a lot of countries that is illegal.  Should he then have to resign?  What about if he was found to be a polygamist in some countries that is legal and acceptable for people with power?

    And another thing if he was seriously a Nazi why isn’t he spending more time fronting some kind of Nazi organisation (like his dad) because surely he has contacts.  Instead he’s running a worldwide automobile association and trying to campaign against racism and trying to improve the environment.  Where is the logic in that?

    His position isn’t compromised as the answer to blackmail over your personal life, slander and libel is legal action.  That’s the whole reason these laws exist.

    Best thing for the sport is if the newspapers/websites and blogs stop reprinting and linking to the articles.  If they do really care about the sport as they claim they would.  Freedom of press is a good thing but freedom implies a choice.

    Mr. Michael Counsell apparently doesn’t realize the mess MadMax has made of F1 racing.  Frankly I don’t give a hoot what MadMax does in his off hours but if this is what it takes to clear us of him, so be it.   ANYTHING to rid us of him is acceptable, ANYTHING!  He IS that bad!

    Michael, you can’t expect me to ignore what’s going on on the off chance that Mosley may be entirely innocent. I’ve reported this story with what I consider a due degree of scepticism (see my original post in which I explained my misgivings about the ‘Nazi’ angle).

  10. Michael Counsell said on 6th April 2008, 20:46

    Number 38, I’m glad someone’s said that, even though I disagree…

  11. Michael Counsell said on 6th April 2008, 20:49

    Innocent of what?  It’s not about innocence it’s about whether this kind of reporting is a proper means of forcing someone out of a position of power.

  12. Michael Counsell said on 6th April 2008, 20:52

    Re-reporting it only creates the perpetuates scandal which is supposed to be a bad thing.

  13. Michael Counsell said on 6th April 2008, 20:53

    Post 28 doesn’t make sense can it be deleted?

  14. Keith Collantine (@keithcollantine) said on 6th April 2008, 20:58

    I thought it made sense. I didn’t agree with it though.
