Why Max Mosley must be prosecuted

Max Mosley claims that he has done nothing illegal in his little assignation with some belles de jour. However people have been prosecuted for indulging in similar activities. To quote from The Spanner Trust Website

“In December 1990 in the UK, 16 gay men were given prison sentences of up to four and a half years or fined for engaging in consensual SM activity. This followed a police investigation called Operation Spanner prompted by the chance finding of a videotape of SM activities.

The convictions have now been upheld by both the Court of Appeal and the Law Lords in the UK and the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.

Despite what you may have read in the newspapers, for the most part, the men were convicted of the standard offence of assault occasioning actual bodily harm. Their defence, that they had all consented to the activities, was denied.”

So I hope that the police are currently investigating Mr Mosley and that charges will follow shortly – or will he avoid prosecution because he is rich and straight?
