We’ve already had several discussions about the Mosley scandal (see links below) as new information surrounding the story has come to light.

Mosley has not disputed that the video published by the News of the World in March showed him paying to take part in a sadomasochistic sex session lasting several hours with up to five prostitutes. He has denied the newspapers’ claims that the occasion had an explicit Nazi theme, and is suing the newspaper for invasion of privacy.

Many leading figures within Formula 1 and the FIA have publically criticised Mosley and urged him to resign. F1 commercial boss Bernie Ecclestone, a close friend and ally of Mosley’s since the 1970s, joined them over the weekend.

I agree with Ecclestone as have many of the comments received on this site. (Many have also remarked that Mosley should resign anyway because of his handling of Formula 1 in recent years, but the FIA Senate will principally be concerned with the sex scandal).

However I think it’s fair to say a small but vocal minority do not feel the scandal prevents Mosley from being able to do his job, and agree with him that the News of the World’s article is an unjust invasion of his privacy.

Which side of the argument are you on?
