Just So There's No Doubt

A few days ago, the head of F1 racing, Bernie Ecclestone, released a statement praising Hitler as a great leader, albeit one who "got lost" in the end. In response to the expected torrent of criticism and calls to resign, Ecclestone sought to make it absolutely clear he's an anti-Semite:
But Ecclestone said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press that “I think the people who are saying that [I should resign] haven’t got the power to say these things.”

If the WJC [World Jewish Congress] is influential, he said, “it’s a pity they didn’t sort the banks out.” Asked to elaborate, Ecclestone said, “They have a lot of influence everywhere.”

Ah. Well then, sorry we got distracted.
