Comments on: Max Mosley’s “unfortunate interest” http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/2008/07/08/max-mosleys-unfortunate-interest/ Insights from the UK and beyond Sat, 05 Nov 2016 11:44:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: gillshalos http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/2008/07/08/max-mosleys-unfortunate-interest/comment-page-1/#comment-5309 Tue, 26 Aug 2008 15:37:32 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/2008/07/08/max-mosleys-unfortunate-interest/#comment-5309 If it was between two consenting adults then it was nobodies business but theirs and the press should keep thier big nose out of it. He should take them for as much as he can; since since this type of dirt digging sensationalism isn’t news but, the lowest form gutter stalking which frequently verges on libel, and is only dressed up by the frequently indecently invasive photos provided by their so-called photographers who are nothing more than paparazzi.

If I were on the jury I would double the amount against the “news” org.

It is unfortunate but we are all losing our privacy on many fronts.

Wikipedia and other websites have more details. Formula One Racing doesn’t require that kind of advertizing.

There were no children involved, no one wound up buried at the bottom of a garden or in pieces in a barrel. It was consensual on both parts. The spankees were financially compensated, it didn’t interfere with the performance of the gentleman’s duties in the world of racing.

Hmmmmm, the Canadian government becomes aware that a teenage Canadian citizen was being tortured at Guantanamo Bay in 2004, yet here it is 2008, that information has just come out and people shrug. Heads of Canadian state are complicit in the torture of a teenage boy and it is no big deal, yet someone in the racing world spanks a consenting adult and people go round the twist.

Get your priorities straight people!

I’m sure that he doesn’t really feel that way deep down and he only used those words in his public statement because of the public guilt forced upon him.

We all have our own sexual desires that are, thankfully, unique to each one of us. Some people liked be covered in chocolate sauce, others choose to be caned and beaten by beautiful women. As long as your sexual relations are committed between two (or more) consentual adults then who is anyone to judge? Or perhaps you’d like the government to keep tabs on how much Hersey’s syrup you purchase each month?

And to the person who stated that “he’s a public figure…the public need to know about this kind of stuff” i ask you, why does the public need to know? And then my next question would be, where exactly do you draw that line? “you there in the bedroom? We know that you were engaging in sexual relations that were not confined to the missionary position with the lights off. Come out with your hands up!”. Last time I checked it said “2008” on the calendar, not 1808.

Also she should be banned from all future sex work.

Everything was done in private, with private money, and consenting adults – Molsey’s private life and kinks are just that, private. And they should have stayed private. Though it might have been helpful if he had told his spouse about it, but again that is a private matter. Now if he were holding public office and was using tax payer’s money, and not his own money, it might be different. But than again, the exposure would have to deal with the abuse of money and the abuse of his own rump. Let’s hope privacy wins over the kind of abuse randomly afflicted by the News of the World.

He is the ambassador for Formula 1 and is expected to behave in a manner that befits his position. He adopts the high moral ground when it suits him (as in the Maclaren spy saga last year) but expects to be judged by different standards. The man is arrogant beyond belief and clearly believes he is above criticism and reproach. I hope this misguided attempt to restart his career fails miserably.

For years, this disgusting excuse for a newspaper, has published lurid details of people’s lives, with particular emphasis on the sexual aspects, for the sole purpose of selling newspapers. I strongly suspect that this was a setup to discredit Mr Mosley by a person, or persons, as yet unknown. I have been a follower of Formula One for many years,and despite the veneer of sophistication that the principle players like to portray, they have the moral integrity of used car/real estate salesman. I think we should all wait until the report is completed by the private investigation company that Mr Mosley has appointed to get to the truth. When we have that information, we will be able to see the whole picture, then we can judge this event for what it really is.
