The Anonymous Widower

Bernie Gets Out Of Jail

There is a report on the BBC about how Bernie Ecclestone has paid a very large fine to end his bribery trial. This is the start of the report.

A German court has agreed to end the bribery trial of Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone in exchange for a $100m (£60m) payment from him.

Mr Ecclestone’s offer was based on an existing provision in German law.

I would suspect that there are only two other people in history, could have extracted themselves from the predicament in which Bernie found himself.

Machiavelli himself and Cardinal Thomas Wolsey.

And of course like Wolsey, Bernie was born in Suffolk.

Suffolk is a county of England unlike any other. Someone described it as curious, but I disagreed in this post calling it independent and forgotten.

Bernie is definitely independent, but he will never be forgotten.
