Bernie: Hitler got things done

July 4th, 2009

Bernie EcclestoneIt’s been a while but I knew that it was impossible for Bernie to go more than a couple of months without saying something completely outrageous.  And boy was it worth the wait.

He’s called Ferrari idiots, he’s insulted black, Jewish women drivers and now he’s expressed his admiration for Adolf Hitler.

In his latest interview in the Times, Bernie suggests that perhaps Adolf Hitler was misunderstood; he didn’t really want to dominate Europe and exterminate the Jews.  He just wanted to get things done.

A bit like an über-David Allen:

In a lot of ways, terrible to say this I suppose, but apart from the fact that Hitler got taken away and persuaded to do things that I have no idea whether he wanted to do or not, he was in the way that he could command a lot of people, able to get things done.

He also thinks the Iraq war was a bad idea:

We did a terrible thing when we supported the idea of getting rid of Saddam Hussein. He was the only one who could control that country. It was the same [with the Taleban].
