Thread: Super Injunctions

  1. #1

    Default Super Injunctions

    What do you all think about those super injunctions taken out by footballers and actors? Do you think people in the public eye should use human rights legislation to protect their infidelities?

    Thank god for Twitter, now they are all being outed on there it's nice to know the 50 to 100 grand they are spending on these super injunctions is totally wasted.

    I think people deserve their privacy. If paying for an injunction is the only way to try and ensure it then why not. The laws are there to protect people. Celebrity or not.

    I have to agree with you. I'm not well know and would not like to be 'outed' so how is a celeb any different.

    I find it blood hilarious but that being said, if I was married and someone was going to expose the fact I was using escorts or having an affair I might find myself siding with the celebrities. Never understood the fascination with knowing who was sleeping with who anyway!!!

    I don't find it hilarious. The press don't give a monkeys that celebrities have children and families who will be affected by stories.
    When I see celebrity mags I just wonder who buys that crap.

    What I find hilarious is not the fact that these people are being outed by the press and families etc. are being hurt. It's that after all the trouble that they went to, to get a Super Injunction, some person has released all the info on Twitter.

    Let's just remind ourselves that super injunctions were originally put in place to stop government or national secrets getting into the public domaine not because some premiership footballer is knobbing some local escort. If they were bothered about the privacy of their wives and children they wouldn't need a super injunction in the first place would they?
