Suing Twitter? Give me a break!

There is something which really gets my goat and that makes me frustrated – footballers on their high horses threatening Twitter because people happen to find out something called the truth, apparently a little known part of life they try and avoid. I think the whole super-injunction scandal is appalling and does a disservice to not only the media and what the world of journalism aims to achieve, but the legal system as a whole.

It is obvious that if you have enough money you can pay high court judges to hide your mess and threaten to imprison those you have had an affair with. Again, what an absolute shambles, and I think these footballers fail to realise that it takes two to tango, and if you’re going to imprison somebody for speaking the truth then your end should get its own cell too.

It is insulting that footballers are saying ‘I’m going to make love to you, I won’t tell the wife, then I will gag you with the law so you can’t tell’ – how psychologically damaging is this for a female who, unfortunately, had to bear sleeping with such a deceitful individual. Okay, imprison them – but this is totally unacceptable.

Look, keep it in your trousers and be a man – if the truth comes out, it’s your fault. Stop trying to blame everyone else and hide up your mess – you weren’t complaining when you cheated, so either allow the truth to come out or have an operation to have your testicles removed. Whilst you’re there, get them to chop it off and ram it up your backside, until you learn how to deal with the media, integrity of information, credibility and the law.

I do respect footballers but I don’t respect these super-injunctions (being requested by celebrities, too). It is basically a way of having an affair and covering it up, psychologically damaging the female in the process with the threat of legal action. Look, get your acts in gear and stop playing the game – and the law. Keep it in your pants and save us the hassle of wondering if you’re all slime-balls.
