Social Media Sell Out?
For weeks the underbelly of British media have been bubbling the story of the massive super injunctions, the most recent play things of the super rich and famous of Britain’s elite. The super injunctions are you see a way of a person with deep enough pockets prevention the media from reporting various allegations, such as extra marital affairs, visits to massage parlors, excessive use of illegal white powdery substances, use of escorts and so on.
However, it is not only that, the super injunctions that are so en vogue at the moment also prevent any names being mentioned or indeed even the reporting that there is even a super injunction in place. It is a very dark area, so called from the UK human rights acts, but is so frequently being used by the celebs who really do not want details of their peccadillos and perversions made public.

So the fact the a once top flight footballer should see the need to get a super injunction to prevent details of his dealings with a certain escort from becoming public knowledge or the fact that he’s got an injunction in the first place seemed pretty foolish. The only people it’s really befitting would be, let’s be honest, is his legal team.
There is much speculation and conversation in the UK about the validity, the morality and the right of these super injunctions, many different opinions are abound and trotted out on an hourly basis. Some love them, some hate them, some have no opinion, but largely, most seem to think they are absurd, especially when used by these rich and famous to cover their dirty tricks and keep up a clean public image. Now, I am not going to comment on the motives behind brave or not media person who took to social networking site Twitter to make a profile and bash out the names the British press could not.Continued on the next page
