BBC NEWS | UK | Mosley wins court case over orgy

I for one think it was the right decision. Privacy should be respected, regardless.

Re: Mosley Wins Court Case

I agree. I think the Nazi overtones and suggesting they were somehow mocking the Holocaust victims was completey fabricated aswell.

"We felt that what we saw, what we witnessed, was on balance a fair and reasonable interpretation of Nazi-style role-play."

Yeah, but 'we' is referring to a load of scum tabloid journalists, so could be lacking in a bit of credibility.

Indeed. Coke-addled, drunk scum tabloid journos, perhaps.

Re: Mosley Wins Court Case

Hell in a hand-cart, what is the world coming to, oh brave new world that has such people in it, collapse of cilvilisation, condoning deviancy etc

I can imagine a few people on the other thread will be a little upset by this.

Edit to add a gratuitous o tempora, o mores

Re: Mosley Wins Court Case

Of course, Mosely has left the court with his reputation intact I'm sure that cheating on his wife makes him a thoroughly decent chap...

Re: Mosley Wins Court Case

Hmmm, an interesting Article in Metro Newspaper today (25 July 2008)

Allegation = a woman is heard muttering "But we are the Aryan race, the blondes"

The defence = she doesn't know what 'Aryan' means; she could not explain why she used it

Allegation = Mosely and a woman discussed Nazi scenarios in e-mails.

The defence = E-mails were found to have been deleted from the womans computer; but she denied doing so on Mosely's orders.

Allegation = 2 women were said to have been wearing German military jackets.

The defence = "We were not trying to act a military scene.We were trying to act a modern prison scene"

Not mentioned in the Metro were the use of German accents; that Mosely said were used as he thought that the German language sounded bossey; or the reference to lice inspections.

Clearly this isn't the end of civilisation. However, Mosely's position is as the head of FIA. This role involves meeting heads of state, royalty and VIP's. A number of these people are said to have asked that he does not meet them at the Grand Prix in their country. As such he is unable to fulfil his role. Usually when people are unable to carry out their job function they resign/are replaced.

In my view anyone with any ounce of decency would have resigned - rather than let this sorry saga fester.

Although on this occasion the Judge declined to find any suggestion of Nazism, it may be possible that some people who enjoy S&M do role play with Nazi overtones. Rather than make ironic 'jokes' about such matters we should perhaps remember the trues horrors that those in the concentration camps actually suffered - rather than belittle it with such churlish behaviour and remarks.

Sad.....very sad....

Well deciding what people should or should not be allowed to be to be informed of is censorship - so I think the German accent might suffice - burnt any books lately???

If you want sex stories buy the Sport or a copy of Razzle, and dont give me the old "burning books analogy" If Max Mosely had not been "Famous " no one would have batted an eyelid The country is about to hit the biggest crisis in decades and the newspapers are reporting ****e as usual.

But he is famous and you're trying to dictate what people should read

If you want sex stories you can also buy the News of the World - did you hear about the one regarding the head of an international sporting body ?

Re: Mosley Wins Court Case

How many people who are criticising Max Moseley would be happy for things they do behind closed doors to be secretly filmed and put in the News of the ******* World. The ones that buy that garbage have as much to be ashamed of as anyone.
Tabloid newspapers should be taxed to help pay for the court time they take up defending their sordid trade. If anyone is responsible for the decline in freedom of speech it's the papers themselves for pushing the boundaries of common sense and decency. I hate them and everything they have done to our society.

No I didn't miss that; I read about it in the papers despite the fact that some people would seem to wish to prevent such news being reported.

And yes, he won the case on the Nazi issue - but admitted lying and cheating on his wife who is said to be devastated; paying about £80k for S&M sessions and ending up with questionable character and not being welcome anywhere - some victory

Mind you, for someone who seems to think there should be a media blackout on the issue you seem awfully well informed Clearly its wrong for others to read about it; but Ok for you to?

So you were so disinterested you read / listened to the news reports (rather than just ignore them) - then moan about the fact its reported. You're so disinterested that you preach to others they shouldn't hear about it?

It is a free country - until the dictators start the censorship

:
Aryan race - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The "Aryan race" is a concept in European culture that was influential in the period of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It derives from the idea that the original speakers of the Indo-European languages and their descendants up to the present day constitute a distinctive race. Belief in the existence of the "Aryan race" is sometimes referred to as Aryanism (not to be confused with the unrelated Christian religious belief known as Arianism). An identical belief, but with broader inclusivity, is referred to as pan-Aryanism.

Humans's are funny creatures...in places like South Africa, the "whites' are considered invaders and the "blacks' are considered the original inhabitants, yet Mandella and his mates are also the decendants of Invaders who arrived only about 1000 years ago dribving out the "Browns' who were the true inhabitants.......

Bushmen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Bushmen, San, Basarwa, ǃKung or Khwe are indigenous people of southern Africa which spans most areas of South Africa, Zimbabwe , Lesotho, Mozambique, Swaziland, Botswana, Namibia and Angola. They were traditionally hunter-gatherers, part of the Khoisan group, and are related to the traditionally pastoral Khoikhoi. Starting in the 1950s, through the 1990s, they switched to farming.

Genetic evidence suggests they are one of the oldest, if not the oldest, peoples in the world ó a "genetic Adam" according to Spencer Wells, from which all humans can ultimately trace their genetic heritage.[1]
