Four rich swordsmen yesterday visited Parliament to complain about the naked nerve of the media. All were cross that their sexual/marital misadventures had been paddled in and peddled by the jaunty British Press. Such was their displeasure that they demanded a privacy law.
So why the need for a law on privacy which would probably help chiefly lawyers, sado-masochist freaks, libidinous actors and passing totalitarians?
I know it's been said before but it's worth repeating - what a person gets up to in their private life (unless they are causing harm to a non-consenting person or abusing a vunerable person who cannot protect themselves) is of absolutely no concern of ours, OR the bloody journalists. And even if they were doing something illiegal, it would be a matter for the police to deal with and not us or some trumped up little arrogant scribe. So why not pass a law that says you cannot talk about these private things in print?
Acting as if a person's sexual activities has any bearing on their work or has any affect on the lives of countless people they've never met, makes about as much sense as saying that their choice of cereal or the colour of their socks effects how they do their job, or could cause harm to the nation.
There are quite a few people working in the news media right now who need to get over their damn selves.
