Love of money and the superinjunction scandal

If only these top tier/celebrity footballers were not paid such revoltingly big salaries, they would not be able to conduct these expensive extra-marital affairs.

What a dreadful example they surely set to their young, impressionable and adoring fans!

Their love (and acquisition) of money is certainly the root of all evil.

AS I see it, the Human Rights Act exists to protect the dubious interests of third-rate “celebrities,” dishonest bankers, criminals, illegal immigrants and shysters.

Britain should withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights, repeal the Human Rights Act and replace it with a Bill of Rights which safeguards the rights of those whose liberties have been trampled on for far too many years.

I AM against the sort of action adopted by Liberal Democrat MP John Hemming whereby he used Parliamentary privilege to name footballer Ryan Giggs as the “celebrity” in an alleged affair.

The flouting of the law by this method should only be used in exceptional cases (Yorkshire Post, May 24), and where it most certainly is in the public interest.

From: Len Bentley, Grantham, Lincolnshire.

AS Max Nottingham said, (Yorkshire Post, May 23), it is true that people can get abused on Twitter and other social sites.

If it can happen to Gabby Logan, it can happen to anyone. Though the internet is here to stay, time will tell about its advantages and disadvantages.
