Ecclestone offered money for Tory MP seat for Mosley

Former Conservative party chairman David Davis has alleged that Bernie Ecclestone offered money for erstwhile FIA president Max Mosley to become a member of parliament. Mosley has denied the allegations, while Ecclestone acknowledged that meetings had taken place but that no payment was offered "I don't imagine that is what happened. We don't know Mr Davis is saying the truth do we?"

What in the name of...

No worries Jean, storm in a teacup. Politicians are worse than racing drivers, can't trust them to keep their gobs shut. Anyway, this lad, David Davis, silly bloody name isn't really, who'd trust a word out of his mouth?

I'm not sure why he'd bother lying about it Bernie. On the other hand it's not like you have a track record in dubious financial dealings with political parties......oh, wait a minute.
Bernie   Bernie Ecclestone
Oh that Labour thing. I threw Tony Blair a few quid back in 1997 to get us out of the smoking-ad ban. Then the idiot gave it back to me, bit of an uptight plonker him. I don't know why I bother really. He should have taken up the ciggies himself, might relax him a bit, and I could have done him a good deal with Marlb...

Please Bernie, no more shady deals, leave the cigarette companies where they belong, and leave the politicians alone too.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Given the political skills you displayed in the Bahrain affair you better leave the politicians alone also Todt.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Funny that, Jean used some seriously amazing political skills back in the Ferrari days to get me out of a few japes. Anyway Bernie, interesting choice in trying to get Mosley a Tory seat.
Bernie   Bernie Ecclestone
Those Tories are all private school ponces, posers the lot of them. Couldn't go back to Blair so I had to go Conservative. Anyway I thought Max would have fit in with that lot, Tory MPs always liked a good sex scandal didn't they.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
I get it now, Labour left you red-faced, and with Max the only option really was to go blue.

What do you mean by that? I'll sue the living daylights out of anyone who says I'm into perverted sexual enterprises. I simply enjoy partaking in private performances, perhaps based on a crime and punishment theme, with an erotic subplot, all of which is appropriately concealed, as well as scrupulously invoiced, in a coterie of carefully recruited female acquaintances.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Ok Max, no more suggestive inuendo from me. Anyway good job it didn't work out with the Tories. You probably would have got whipped in the polls, and with your father having been leader of the Union of British Fascists the media would have given you a rough ride.
Bernie   Bernie Ecclestone
Actually Fernando, Mosley's old man had the right idea didn't he. All this democracy is a waste of time, stupid to give every Joe Soap an equal say. Imagine the state F1 would be in if I listened to anyone. Get back a few dictators, like A....
todt   Jean Todt
I'll just stop you there Bernie.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Here's a wild idea Massa. Bernie seems to like buying people seats they don't deserve, so maybe you could ask him for a donation for your Ferrari drive in 2013.
massa   Felipe Massa
I won't need any special favours Fernando, and it's not my fault. If the team can make the car more competitive for me then I might be able to do better.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Just looking at your results here, couple of 15ths, best result a 9th, 17th in the championship. It must definitely be the car. Actually, hold on... in my identically "shit" Ferrari I have a 2nd, a win, and jointly lead the title race.
Domenicali   Stefano Domenicali
Please Fernando, we need you to support your Ferrari brother Felipe in his time of need. We are one magical family, we know you can win, we must maintain our equilibrium as a unit to give Felipe an equal chance.
Montezuma   Luca di Montezemolo
Silence puny humanoid! There are no equals in the Kingdom of Maranello. Payment for a place in my scarlet chariots will be from the blood of the heart. The annointed one Alonso has shown his special powers, this Massa child must deliver or be thrown to the wolves. The title is in our hands, woe betide the failure who will take it from me and the golden child.
massa   Felipe Massa
I'll let you know what I think of you whenever you get your head out of Montezemelo's backside Fernando.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Please do Massa, I'll stop off at the dole office and listen to anything you have to say there.
