  2. He's gone cuckoo. :der:
  3. Goodbye Bernie.
  4. Well, it makes sense. Hitler DID get things done. And there ARE a lot of useless politicians today... But it's F1 we're talking about, not the modern world.
  5. I agree, but TBH F1 is like a modern war these days.

    He has became a Barnie Flintstone :bulgy-eyes: ..... :wave:
  7. He gave the media another easy target, mention the word Hitler and all hell breaks loose and you give the media column inches for days. He's a smart man and I wouldn't put it past him to have made such statements knowing it would deflect the media away from the F1 FOTA squabbles and perhaps give them some breathing space to put their tit for tat name calling to rest. Read the article, he doesn't say he agree's with what Hitler did in terms of the holocaust but just that he gets things done and that he admired Margret Thatcher as a leader and that he felt Blair and Brown spend too much time trying to please everyone all the time.
  8. Ofcourse, Kevin, he never agreed with what Hitler actually done, but it's providing fuel for the media rumors bonfire. Sure he may be bombarded with "F1: Fascist One", but it's publicity and that's what he needs... Mind you, it could backfire. But Max got away, didn't he?

    A little recurring theme here with the F1 higher-ups. Anyone who knows what I'm talking about gets a cookie.
  9. Max Mosley, son of Oswald Mosley (famous UK Nazi sympathiser before and during the war) who seems to like women in certain uniforms?

    Do I get the cookie?
  10. Yep. Just have to ram it into the DVD drive to e-mail it.

    Or would you rather I burn it to a DVD and send it by post?
  11. He's lost the plot...
  12. And we've lost been losing the sport :(

    He was a bit unlucky to tell this to a news paper. Qualifying him with dementia goes a little bit too far. He clearly said that he doesnt support the regime, but only commented on hte leadership.
    With all respect, such analyzations should be able to make 70 years after the war, why is Napoleon still hailed for his leadership, while under his reign a lot of bad stuff happened as well.
    Roman Empire? Same stuff!
  17. Yes dementia is a little off, he's still as sharp as ever but the media have twisted him commenting on how Hitler was able to turn around the country when he got into power and turned it into making it sound like he supported the holocaust. I think the reason its upset some people where as Napolean doesn't is that we still have veterans from WWII and holocaust survivors so its still a little raw for some but then there are those who seem to take it upon themselves to be morally outraged for everyone and they do a disservice for the causes they apparently support.
  18. True dat...
  19. Yep, true, i was just trying to make a point there btw, didn't meant it literally ;)
