Super-duper injunctions… the latest fashion

So, more news of these so-called ‘superinjunctions’ being issued in Britain, and rising. To cut a long story short, some men cheat, don’t want us to know they’ve cheated, and pay a small sum (to them, at least) to have a judge block the press from releasing this information. It puts it into perspective when we are more shocked and concerned at a footballer having an affair – even by broadsheet standard – than the rising issue of climate change. Those baby-faced celebrities who we never thought could be so sleazy, and those high-profile individuals who are no longer role models but branded disgusting across the tabloids. Give it six months and it’ll be brushed under the carpet. But then again, it sure is fun this guessing game…
