The Spectator is pointing out that Bernie Ecclestone is seeking to apologise for his crass remark, “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.”

Bernie misses the point in oh so many ways.

It’s because of the useless “way that he could command a lot of people able to get things done” that Germany lost the war.

If people had been able to say ‘no’ to him (without being shot) then Germany would probably still be sole ruler of Europe even now — instead of having to share that role with a liberated France.
