F1 chief seeks French ban on orgy video
Bonne chance mon brave
Formula One boss Max Mosley is seeking a French ban on the video footage showing him engaging in unsavoury activities with five prostitutes.
The footage was published on so many websites that a UK judge ruled such a ban would have no practical difference because it had already been widely distributed. The film was briefly removed from the News of the World website before returning after the verdict last week.
The judge accepted that the material was intrusive and demeaning, but: "The dam has effectively burst... the granting of an order against this respondent at the present juncture would merely be a futile gesture."
Mosley's action in France is also on privacy grounds. He seeks to make the video footage inaccessible for internet users in France and for papers using the images to be seized, Reuters reports.
He denies any Nazi connotations to the S&M orgy and is fighting pressure to resign his Formula One post. The FIA is holding an extraordinary general meeting 3 June.
Mosley, the son of British fascist Sir Oswald Mosley, is appealing the News of the World verdict. The two sides will be back in court in July. ®
only a certified halfwit.....
Only a certified halfwit would waste his dollar on blocking youtube at this late stage..... Oh wait, isn't that what Max called Jackie Stewart ? No Nazi connotations ? Oh come on ! Even Paris Hilton could point that out.
I've followed motorsport for about 39 of my 43 years, and it is my opinion that Max and Bernie have progressively chiselled away at the credibility of the sport since they deposed the previous incumbent (oddly enough another chappie with fascistic connections if certain sources are to be believed, one Jean Marie Balestre), but I do believe that the guys privacy has been intruded upon. Again though only a certified halfwit would fail to realise the potential for blackmail by those offering such services, or the glee that the tabloid press would take in ensuring the reports of such activities made the front page...
ban it in France????
Why would we French people want to watch this lame vid??? We all do worst every week-end (for those of us who have to work during the week, that is). Plus, sharing bed with nazis is something we're not really afraid of. You even get a free haircut afterward!
Funny thing is, if you want to have action with a IIIrd-Reich-like dressed lady, the last person you want to ask is a German lady. For some obscure reason, they tend to think it's not funny (not that I tried, of course...).
'unsavoury: morally offensive; "an unsavoury reputation"; "an unsavoury scandal"'
What is so "unsavoury" about someone enjoying consensual BDSM activities, El Reg?
