Hugh Grant Super Injunctions Are Good
Hugh Grant who has famously been in the media for the wrong reasons said that he backs the use of gagging orders to protect celebrities and feels that privacy for celebrities and people in the public eye was one of your basic human rights.
He said on BBC Two Newsnight: “You never know when you haven’t got a long lens in the bushes at the end of my road or in a car. I’ve had my phone hacked, I’ve had the police come and tell me that now. They’re always looking for anyone you may have been in contact with.
“It’s fabulous that people can go to a judge and stop these things being printed, and it’s wonderful that ultimately if it goes on like that the worst of the tabloids will pretty much go out of business, because there’s very little real journalism done in those papers now. It’s mainly stealing successful people’s privacy and selling it. I think the press have been completely out of control for the last 20 years.”
Hugh Grant said of the Press Complaints Commission: PCC is the laughing stock of the world in terms of policing the press. They are absolutely toothless. The lawyer will say at the end of a conversation about suing someone, ‘Of course you can go to the PCC’, and then everyone has a laugh about it.”
Celebrities are now worried that their expensive super injunctions are no longer working after stories have been leaked on twitter revealing the identity of the celebrities who have been having affairs.
