The Max Mosley verdict

Max Mosley has won his privacy case against News Group Newspapers Ltd, the publishers of the News of the World. A full PDF of the verdict is here. I am in two minds about this verdict. On the one hand, the News of the World is a scumbag newspaper full of scumbag stories, owned by […]

Thoughts on Max Mosley and the FIA (at last)

First of all, I suppose it should not be a surprise that Max Mosley won his vote of confidence. He would never have called it if he did not think he was able to win. But the margin of the victory did take me by surprise somewhat. But if the vote was designed to assert […]

Bernie and Max are penpals!

I always had a little suspicion in the back of my mind that Bernie Ecclestone and Max Mosley didn’t quite see eye-to-eye as they’d have us believe. The 2005 United States Grand Prix was a case in point. Bernie Ecclestone — of course — wanted the race to go ahead in a way that would […]

Max Mosley injunction against News of the World refused

This morning brought yet more bad news for Max Mosley as he has lost his first legal case against News Group Newspapers, the News International subsidiary that publishes the News of the World. Mosley had wanted the videos and images of his alleged Nazi-themed sex orgy to permanently removed from the News of the World. […]

Why Max Mosley has to go

Yesterday, Max Mosley finally responded to the News of the World‘s allegations. And I have to say, if the allegations were not enough to make one think that Max Mosley can no longer be the President of the FIA, then his pathetic letter ought to be. The letter has been taken apart by Ollie, Negative […]

More on the Max Mosley allegations

I don’t want to dwell on it, but I have a couple of extra thoughts on the Max Mosley allegations after reading some more articles on the subject. Firstly, this one from Planet-F1. The site is not one of my regular visits, but this article caught my attention. And this paragraph in particular is interesting. […]

The Max Mosley allegations

It cannot have escaped your attention that yesterday The News of the World ran an extraordinary story about the FIA President Max Mosley. The paper has alleged that Mosley was involved in a “sick Nazi orgy with 5 hookers”. If the allegations are true, it could have big consequences in the political world of F1. […]

Tommy Sheridan arrested (again)

Oh dear. What astonished me when Tommy Sheridan was awarded damages in last year’s trial was the fact that a real-life Chewbacca defence was employed. It was his hairy body wot won it! Did Chewbacca like Scrabble and sunbeds as well?

Alleged sexy wildman caught in a socialist party

I think I’m glad I’m not an SSP supporter. After a good half a decade of good progress, this past year or so has been disastrous. Now it seems as though they are going down in flames, with an additional little firework display for good measure just in case nobody noticed. When Tommy Sheridan resigned […]

BLOODY HELL

THE LIB DEMS WON. What was a “safe” Labour seat has been turned into a three-way marginal. How did that happen? Gordon Brown’s meddling perhaps. That’ll teach him to stand in Rosyth talking about job security. I hope Labour take this as the big “fuck you” that it clearly is. And this is also a […]
