FIA boss Max Mosely remains ensconced as one of motor sport’s top power brokers in spite of a tabloid escandalo that portrayed him as having a boner for the Third Reich. Self described “jewish princess” Tanya Gold of the Guardian argues Mosely’s indiscretions are no big deal, insisting “what happens in the privacy of his dungeon is private. But I do know this – if Adolf Hitler had just been confined to a locked room, and been spanked, the world would be a better place.”

The Caravan Club was hurt, and Mercedes-Benz, BMW and the German motoring federation ADAC were weeping at his depravity. The latter even twittered about trying to ban him from their grand prix – is that really a punishment? And why? “He was making fun of the Holocaust! This is bad! This is evil! This is Nazism!” No. It is not Nazism. And I will personally incarcerate in a dungeon and spank anyone who dares to say it is.

Let us be clear. Nazism was a tyrannical system of power that murdered millions of people. Max Mosley is a 68-year-old grey-haired businessman who played sado-masochistic sex games with prostitutes who were said to be dressed as concentration camp inmates. She then stuck a camera in her bra and sold the tape to the NotW. He had consensual sex, he harmed no one, and he used highly paid, media-savvy prostitutes, not trafficked women. He even had a cup of tea with them afterwards.

Mosley’s barrister argued that the orgy did not have Nazi connotations. But so what if it did? I have no problem with Nazi-style orgies, if they are consensual. I have a problem with Nazi-style genocides. Like the one that is happening in Darfur, which is ignored, because we are too busy bleating that Mosley’s sexual fantasies are gross, and reading Heat. You will find something gross in every bedroom.

And who is leading the charge of shame? BMW are particularly distressed by Mosley’s behaviour. Would that be the same BMW whose major shareholders – the Quandt family – allegedly made their fortune using Jewish slave labour in the war? And there is Mercedes-Benz; they too are squeaking for the crucifixion of Mosley. Is that the same Mercedes-Benz that produced engines for the Wehrmacht and happily made the Führer’s cars? And now they slag off Mosley for a sex game – well, that’s too little, too late. Et tu, overpriced saloon car.
