Super injunctions

The past few weeks I have been getting more and more annoyed at the super injunction stories.  Not at the stories themselves - I honestly couldn't care less, but that someone feels the need to abuse the law in order to protect themselves from whatever they have done wrong.

These people make their living by being in the public eye, and enjoy all of the trappings that it brings.  Fast cars, big houses, the ability to misbehave.

And then when they do misbehave they use the courts to ensure that no one knows about it, and start screaming privacy.  It makes my blood boil!  They don't give a damn about privacy when they are making huge amounts of money from giving it up, but woe betide anyone who tries to say anything bad.  You have to take the bad with the good, and using laws that are designed to protect national security (supposedly!) to keep your bad behaviour out of the news is just shameful cowardly behaviour.

Not that I have any respect for the kiss and tell girls either.  I don't think it paints you in a very good light if you go and sell your storey at the first opportunity.  Was the relationship just a way to earn some cash, or did you have deep feelings that you have just sold down the river? And what do either of those options say about you?

Basically I hate the whole celebrity worship culture and how it brings the worst out in people and society!  (And do my best to avoid it when possible!)
