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.

    But it could be perceived that way and perceptions are what matters…  Or maybe I’ve picked up too much from F1 websites over the years.

    "The World Council’s only concern is whether that list is accurate and truthful," he said. "We are not concerned with whether there are issues over how that is obtained. Unless there is evidence that it is forged or inaccurate, we will take it on its face value."

    The quote is Max’s comment on the McLaren texts so if that is his honest opinion he should not care whether his activities came to light after an invasion of privacy.  Of course there is one rule for Mosley/Ecclestone/Ferrari and another for eveyone else.  Seems odd that someone who doesn’t care how information is obtained has called an EGA to discuss an invasion of his privacy.

    From today’s report in the Telegraph:

    According to one source, Mosley’s deepening madness led to a barrage of insults against the people of Bahrain delivered in a telephone exchange with Ecclestone after receiving the letter inviting him not to darken the paddock door in Sakhir. Ecclestone was in the presence of the crown prince at the time, who it is believed heard every word. Mosley later called back to apologise to his majesty in person. What a mess.

    I guess Clive got it right in his blog entry A Song for Max http://madtv.me.uk/f1insight/default.aspx?blogid=258 when he suggested printed the lyrics to a Madness song which included the following lines

    How can you show your face,
    When you’re a disgrace to the human race?

    I am scared with the last developments of this case.I can understand that some don´t like Mosley and take advantage of it, but people such as Niki Lauda, Jackie Stewart or any other driver have no moral to criticize Max, in their heyday they did a lot more than him, the difference is nobody caught them on video…What is this suddenly wave of morality sweeping the globe?This "Big Brother" intruding on people lives between four walls?Beware, you can be next!

    Though… Max could always explains, that on the video, he was spanking the Nazis.
    He could almost look as the nice guy in the story.

    Metaphorically spanking, but literally banging.
    We should cut the guy some slacks…. that was an amazing performance for an almost 70 years old guy.
