While I do care about any human being in distress, this appears to be garnering more media coverage and interest than the 11 workers who lost their lives during the Olympic construction in the same country. There are also reports of slave & child labour, forced eviction and human rights abuse affecting thousands in preparation for the games in Rio according to reports from several NGOs including Amnesty International and the International Labour Organisation.
One has to wonder whether this one individual is receiving a disproportionate level of column inches simply due to who they are as opposed to what they have had to go through.
Then why not cover the human tragedies in Syria or the fate of the Palestinians or any of the daily strife that we humans inflict on one another?
I’d suggest that because this is a racing blog, the fate Ecclestones’ wife’s mother, however tragic, is not a subject of foremost interest. And while you obviously disagree, there was no need to answer with an insult.
I don’t insult people. All I will say is that if you don’t like this blog, you don’t have to read it. It’s free. It is designed to help fans. It is my blog and I can write about what I like. So, if that suits you, fine. If not, you had best find another blog that fits your requirements.
I am now gone from the face of the earth for the next two weeks. No comments moderated. Nothing. I was willing to do some moderation, but I am not going to waste my time on trolls who are simply trying to annoy me.
Some of the commenters here might profitably use the summer break to go away somewhere quiet, think about life, look hard at themselves in the mirror, and consider whether they are still members of the human race.
