Oxford University has been accused of a “moral failure” after accepting a multi-million pound donation from the Mosley family.
The university was given £6 million from a charitable trust set up by Max Mosley to house the fortune he inherited from his father, Sir Oswald Mosley, leader of the British Union of Fascists.
Two of Oxford’s colleges – St Peter’s and Lady Margaret Hall – have also accepted cash from the Mosley family trust totalling more than £6.3 million, The Telegraph can reveal.
Max Mosley, who set up the trust a decade ago, signed off the accounts which confirmed the donations shortly before his death in May of this year.
Pecunia non olet and all that.
Sure, they were fascists. The money wasn’t.
