Injunct and be damned

We’d like to tell you what today’s Lawyer News Daily email is about. But we can’t.

What we can do is tell you of the existence of a Lawyer News Daily and now, thanks to Master of the Rolls Lord Neuberger (see story), our friends in la-la-medialand can know that we won’t be able to tell you about it and why we won’t be able to tell you about it in advance. But we still can’t really talk about it, I’m afraid.

Hope that’s all clear then. No?

Well, today, for his sins, Lord Neuberger attempted to clarify the judiciary’s position on the thorny issue of what the Great British rubber-necking public is and is not allowed to know.

Thanks to the innate voyeurism of sections of the media and the sexual proclivities of certain members of our sporting and entertainment elite, the made-up word superinjunction has wormed its way into the predictive text dictionaries of mobile phone users up and down the country.

But, unfortunately for the MR, few people seem to be any wiser about what we’re supposed to know and what should be kept strictly to the realm of Chinese whispers down the Horse & Groom.

Of course, if you really want to know what’s going on with your favourite Big Brother contestant, you could just ask your MP to pipe up in Parliament.
