GAGA GAGGINGS. (Some notes/thoughts)



A non story becomes the story. ‘Glamour Model has affair with footballer’


One of the major talking points in the media recently, has been about people not being able to talk, due to super injunctions that celebrities have been taking out in order to keep their private indiscretions from the publics eye. Name and shame the fuckers that’s what I say. Or alternatively let them waste their money and buy their anonymity, because all these ‘kiss and tell’ stories do is feed the tabloids and the media moguls profits.

How ironic that one of the law firms benefiting from the injunctions is called Schilling, cos that’s what it’s all about….money, money, money

Freedom of speech becomes a commodity that can be sold to the lawyers and judges if the price is right.

Judges have criticised parliamentary privilege, which allows MP’s to defy court ‘gagging orders’ by naming figures trying to hide behind injunctions.

So called ‘gagging orders’ have done nothing but create disorder in the media, Parliament and The Courts. It was left to internet democracy to speak the truth and name the name.

Is it in the ‘public interest’ to hear about the sex romps of football players? No probably not but….the Jeremy Kyle generation love a bit of it, and the vicarious car crash tabloids rely on the sex and scandal, celebrities are happy to court the media when they are in control of the story, they just don’t like being found out doing anything that will tarnish their public image.

Public figures in positions of power, what they get up to is definitely in the public interest
Fred Goodwin former boss of Royal Bank of Scotland’s mind wasn’t on the job when his bank went bust, he was thinking of a different kind of on the job, and now the tax payer’s picking up the tab for his fuck up.


The old adage that all publicity is good publicity obviously doesn’t apply when squeaky clean images turns out to have dirty secrets.

The tabloid media have created the culture of celebrity and gossip, and the public have bought into it. Supply and demand. Gagging orders limit the supply. So would it be a bad thing If the Celebes wasted their money on injunctions. Without the media there’d be no celebrity.

Pretty soon even the tabloid press will be full of "blind items". Money buys you friends in the media, and conveniently shuts those friends up at pivotal times. I think the days are almost gone where celebrities are hot commodities for media and tabloid press to expose. More and more celebrities and VIPs are looking to use the press to consistently groom and maintain their public image if they're already in a certain celebrity status (like A-listers). For all the minor or declining celebrities, it'll always be open season.

People like my wife (and everyone else's for that matter) perpetuate the garbage American tabloid industry. As for injunctions, as long as the information is TRUE, then fuck the celebs.

But if the info is rumor or lies, then I hope the celebs sue for every penny the tabloid has.

You would of thought Sir Alex Ferguson could have told Ryan Giggs that it's not football so 'Away Girls' don't count for double...

On a serious note...
What happens when an institution or government gets an injunction to cover up something that actually affects US ?
Does that count as private or hurtful to the individual who poisons the water supply ?
You betcha it will !
