Wonderful irony.
The German Bavarian prosecutor alleges Bernie Ecclestone bribed a businessman to the tune of 30 million quid.
Mr E pays Bavarian goverrnment something to the tune of 60 million quid not to prosecute him, so all allegations are dropped.
So an alleged bribe is no longer a bribe because of a payment of what could be argued is a bribe.

Aly, I expect it was all just a terrible misunderstanding (which incidentally may serve as the title for my autobiography).

I don't expect my autobiography to get beyond the apt title, A Terrible Misunderstanding. My favorite title for an autobiography is Alan Alda's Things I Overheard Whilst Talking to Myself which nicely describes the self serving format.

Hmm, Nice, I certainly regret knowing nothing about Mr Fry until now. Thanks Will.
He looks like an interesting guy, I'll do some more digging (in both senses)!
