After accepting a donation of multimillions from the Mosley Family, Oxford University was labeled an institution of “vast hypocrisy” by a former senior researcher fellow.
The university and two Oxford colleges received charitable gifts totalling more than £12 million from a charitable fund up by the recently deceased Max Mosley which drew upon the vast fortune of his father Sir Oswald – the leader of the British Union of Fascists.
Ex-professors have reacted furiously to the University’s accepting charitable donations from a family that is well-known for supporting fascism, antisemitism, and other forms of racism.
Former director of the Institute of Historical Research, Dr Lawrence Goldman was also the senior dean of St Peter’s College. He accused the university of hypocrisy and moral failure for accepting donations.
He stated that the university had “gone off the scale of wakingry,” referring to its efforts to “decolonise the curriculum.”
They take the money of a known fund that has been established by proven fascists.
“There was a complete moral failure.”
Oxford university and two Oxford colleges have been chastised for accepting donations totalling more than £12 million from a charitable trust set up by former world motorsport boss Max Mosely (pictured in 2011). Mosley and his family have a reputation for being anti-Semitic and fascist.

In 2015, Dr Lawrence Goldman, the former director of The Institute of Historical Research (pictured here), was senior dean of St Peter’s college and accused the university of hypocrisy and moral failure for accepting donations.
Goldman said that many of his family members were murdered in Holocaust. Goldman spent months campaigning against St Peter’s college’s receipt of any donations.
“[St Peter’s college]He wrote that he was taking money from the Mosley family, the most notorious fascist dynasty of the English-speaking globe, to finance his research.
The university took in a £6 million donation from the fund, while two Oxford colleges – St Peter’s and Lady Margaret Hall – accepted £6.3 million between them.
Max Mosley established The Alexander Mosley Trust to honor his son, Alexander Mosley (pictured), who was killed by a drug overdose in 2009.
Max Mosley, who passed away from cancer earlier this year aged 81, set up The Alexander Mosley Trust in the name of his son who died from an drug overdose in 2009.
The majority of funds that were funneled into the foundation came from Sir Oswald Mosley’s estate. He married Diana Mitford, the Nazi minister of propaganda, in Berlin in 1936.
Oswald’s guest-of-honour? It was Herr Adolf Hitler.
Although Max did not attend his nuptials to one of the most hated and infamous dictators in the world, it is clear that Max supported the British Union of Fascists as well as its successor, The Union Movement.
The former boss of motorsport was arrested in 1961 for attacking anti-fascist marchers and supporting a fascist candidate for local office.

Robert Halfon, chairman of the education select panel said that he found it disturbing that Oxford University was so eager to talk about diversity and inclusion but would rather take the money from these sources.
However, they seemed to be happy to overlook the Mosley’s rocky past.

Lord Mann is the Government’s antisemitism advisor. He said that if Oxford tries to restore the Mosley name in any manner, they should expect a hostile response.
“I can’t see people being happy to own a Mussolini-designed building or an Hitler scholarship. In relation to Mosley, people in this nation will feel the exact same.
Robert Halfon, chairman of the education select panel, said that while Oxford University was keen to promote diversity and inclusion, it is willing to accept a shilling in return.
But the university appeared to be content to overlook the Mosleys’ sad past.

According to the college and university, the money was cleared by an independent panel that considered legal, ethical, and reputational concerns.
It comes just days after Oxford University’s Linacre College, named after humanist and physician Thomas Linacre (1460-1524), announced its name would be changed to ‘Thao college’ in honour of Vietnamese billionaire Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao who donated a whopping £155 million.
Thao is the founder and CEO of VietJet, an affordable airline. She was fined multiple times for using semi-naked flight attendantesses to increase her prices.
