Once upon a time a client contacted me. “I want an injunction,” he said.
Assuming that he had been at the humiliating end of an incident of domestic abuse, I warned him that even court orders that prohibit threats and molestation can have their shortfalls as I prepared to take notes and asked him to tell me what had happened.
“I’ve been having a relationship with another woman for a few years now,” he began, “It’s now finished and I’ve confessed everything to my wife.”
“And she’s got angry and frightened you?” I queried.
“No, it’s the ex girlfriend; she’s threatening to go to the newspapers.”
“Are they likely to publish?” I enquired.
“Look I’m not so bothered about that, I just want to be really famous,” he replied. “I work in a bank, play football at weekends and I’ve even been in the audience of a Top Gear show, so I thought I’d have all the credentials for a truly super injunction.”
“Will trying to stop publication grant you the fame and publicity you are clearly so readily seeking?” I asked
“Yes, if the whole mad world starts tweeting about me instead!”
