National Post defends Max Mosley

Jonathan Kay is full of it.
The rich are different from you and me. They drive nicer cars. They live in bigger homes. And when they're struck by a fetish for Fascistthemed sadomasochistic sex-play, they can afford to surround themselves with a phalanx of upscale call girls decked out with riding crops and German-style ensembles
Well then I'm happy to know that that makes the activity acceptable from someone who runs a billion-dollar organization. Someone who has to meet with government representatives and international conglomerates.
They also--one needs hardly mention-- say nothing about professional competence. Perhaps the saddest thing about the Mosley sex scandal is that it has distracted attention from all that he has done for Formula One, and motor sport in general.
Like what exactly? The cost saving measures appear to be only a partial success. The only accomplishment that Kay can come up with is the safety changes after the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. I really doubt that Mosley was the one who was rewriting the regulations.
