Everyone seems to be going super injunction mad, recently. A world famous actor, a TV star and a premiership footballer have all been back to the court in the last few days to successfully ‘gag’ the media via injunctions, which are ‘super’ or otherwise, which prevent them telling the world about the sexual affairs of the celebs.
I can’t see why they bother really, it’s like a red rag to a bull isn’t it? As soon as someone doesn’t want you to know anything then everyone just has to know exactly what it is your hiding. I think they call it the Streisand Effect. So, once again, the internet immediately becomes awash with rumours and speculation … it’s open season on finding out who is the actor, who is the footballer or who is the TV star, who has been shagging someone that he shouldn’t have.
Everyone is now desperately searching for Helen Wood actor injunction, Imogen Thomas footballer injunction, well known entertainment man has affair with co-worker, and random initials like NEJ, ETK, and X. Things are getting so frenzied that even David Cameron has had something to say on the subject. Mind you, I’d much rather he’d concentrate on more important matters … like giving us that EU Referendum that he promised. The lying bastard.
So where does that leaves us for now then? Well, I’ve already covered the world famous actor injunction here and I believe that’s not a ‘super’, just a temporary gagging order until the case is heard in full. Then there’s the premiership footballer who had an affair with Imogen Thomas, that’s also a temporary gagging order and not a ‘super’ … can’t help you much there except to say she is Welsh and he has played a huge amount of games for a top premier league football club, he doesn’t play for his country anymore though and I should think his aging legs aren’t quite as express as they used to be.
That leaves us with the ‘household name’ TV Star who had a 6 month affair with a co-worker. Now he’s managed to get a very special gagging order indeed. One which is normally only reserved for child killers and such like. It’s called ‘contra mundum’ injunction and it’s permanent. So, in theory, we’re never going to get to the bottom of who the famous TV star is, which actress he shagged and what the name of his actress wife is.
