Last month the world of Formula One racing was rocked when Max Mosley, the organization's president, was captured on videotape participating in a 'Nazi-style' orgy with prostitutes. Well, the situation has become even more bizarre as the sex scandal has been linked to the British spy agency MI5 (from the Times Online):
An MI5 officer has been forced to resign after admitting that his wife was a prostitute who took part in a notorious "Nazi-style orgy" with Max Mosley, the Formula One racing chief.
The intelligence officer, who cannot be named for security reasons, left the service last month after it emerged that his wife was one of the five call girls who took part in the sadomasochistic sex session with Mosley.
Exposure of the lurid orgy led to calls for Mosley, the son of Sir Oswald Mosley, the wartime British fascist leader, to step down from his post as president of the FIA, the governing body of world motor sport.
In an extraordinary turn of events yesterday, MI5 was forced to deny through Whitehall channels that the orgy had been a "sting" that it had set up to discredit Mosley. "Any suggestion that the service was involved in setting up Mosley is total nonsense," a senior Whitehall official said.
