A case of ‘do as I say, not as I do’

I have no problem with someone wanting to keep their private life private, even celebrities (to a degree, because let’s face it, a lack of real privacy is one of the costs of fame).

But I when it comes to quasi-celebrities — those who are famous for nothing more than having shagged, married, made a sex-tape with or rubbed shoulders or other bits with real celebrities — then I think okay, sure, let them have their privacy. It’s not like we are really all that interested in what the semi-celeb are up to anyway.

However, I think it’s a bit rich that heiress/married-to-celebrity-cricketer/shagged-greasy-haired-hooker-using-actor/quasi-celebrity Jemima Khan has a High Court injunction preventing disclosure of her personal details.

Why do I object? Because she’s been such a supporter of WankerLeaks WikiLeaks dude Julian Assange and his campaign of publish and be damned.

If you really believe that it’s okay for everyone else to have their private details released for all the world to see, the surely you should be happy to do the same. And if you’re not, then grow up and admit that we live in a slightly messy world but we are ALL entitled privacy and that some things are simply better remaining private.

I live in the deep south of New Zealand, where smelly dairy cows are taking over from sheep in the livestock stakes. My hometown is the small but perfectly formed city of Invercargill, which is also the hometown of the original boy racer, Burt Munro. Find out more about me here.
