"..All my life, I have had hanging over me my antecedents, my parents, and the last thing I want to do in some sexual context is be reminded of it.."

Ha ha...not really Solopassion.com connected, but incredibly funny for those who have followed the story and know his family history Sticking out tongue

60,000 pounds: he'll be able to buy a lot of whips and bits with that.

I am delighted at the

I am delighted at the result which saw Mr Mosley win his action against the News Of The World...splendid result...about time a lot of people starting minding their own business.

60,000 pounds in damages...(that will make them think twice)

It's family business

Richard Goode's picture

Which part is unclear?

The part where you seem to suggest that domestic violence is something to which the police should, in some situations, turn a blind eye.

Veitch has committed an act of evil. If the police decide to prosecute, then it is their business.

Which part ...

... is unclear?

Please explain

... allegations against Tony Veitch. If they're true, then the matter was settled between him and his ex as described in the story, and is no one else's business.

My thoughts exactly Robert

 It seems a bit rich to me that one could easily accept that an agreement had been reached between the two parties without some sort of duress being involved.

"Look, I have just battered you senseless, here is some dosh, now just shut the fuck up about it." What would most be likely so say to that? (Note I am not presuming that this is what Veitch did, or said).

Seems to me that the police must investigate this case and any other like it.

Oh, hang on..opps...ha ha, sorry Robert, I misunderstood your post...you were talking about Tony Veitch not Mosley...(ignore my previous post then) ha ha

I do not think he actually hurt any of these tarts...the case is about invasion or privacy, he just enjoys that sort of activity, and in any event it is his own business.

Not so fast.

The case may not have been settled 'as described.' The deal may have been reached under duress.

A responsible reporter would have taken the facts in his case to the police first and allowed them to investigate. Breaking someone's back is a serious assault.

I can see how that might cow someone into taking a 'deal' whereby silence is bought for the measly sum of $100K.

Mind you, the duress might have been in the other direction... Who knows? That is why this is a job for the police & courts first & journalists second and not the other way around.

But given that that hasn't happened here, my only hope is that someone in authority looks into the 'deal' and makes certain that it was indeed struck between to willing adults, both of whom were in their right minds.

Regardless, Veitch's reputation is toast and given his confession, that seems to be the least that he deserves.

Ha ha, Lindsay, you are so accurate...there has just been an hilarious example of this on libertyloop! ha ha Sticking out tongue ...'someone' went off half cocked and failed to read a post clearly and yes, most amusing.

I have just read the Tony

Elijah's picture

I have just read the Tony Veitch story now, Lindsay...gosh...a rather grubby story to be reading about.

Perhaps it is just me...but, if I were the Editor of a major newspaper I would not sully my pages with that sort of thing.

Normal decent chaps surely cannot want to read about the private life of another chap, and what may or may not have taken place a couple of years ago, when eating their breakfast.

Mind you, I would also not sully the pages of a newspaper I was the Editor of by mentioning:

1. Sexual activities of celebrities

2. Helen Clark

3. Any Tory MP

4. Any Socialist or Trades Union leader

5. Global warming

6. Hard luck stories of poor people

7. Maoris

8. The Manufacturers Federation (moaning about the exchange rate)

9. The Warriors

10. 'Wank Words' like "Carbon Footprint" (whatever that is) or "Going Forward"

12. Most contemporary entertainers (like that Spears female)

13.  Anyone or anything else I did not like or agree with, and feel that normal chaps have no need to read about. :)

I've been appalled ...

... at the printing of allegations against Tony Veitch. If they're true, then the matter was settled between him and his ex as described in the story, and is no one else's business. If they're not, of course, then the printing of such a story is unspeakable. Either way, the way folk have reacted by finding Veitch guilty as not charged is a travesty. And either way, The Dom-Post deserves to be fire-bombed. (Note for Wgtn bleeding-hearts: the last sentence is an example of the figure of speech called hyperbole.

Yes, I agree Lance, I was delighted when he decided to sue...and tell people to mind their own jolly business.

I have been following that story. Good on him for looking them in the eye and telling them "So what?".

"I can think of few things more unerotic than Nazi role play,"

Priceless! (PS: I'm sure there is some witty comment to be made from that quote re politicians and their Nazi role playing but my brain is just not on to it today Eye )
