"People secure super-injunctions because they can. It's just like tax avoidance. Wealthy folk minimise their tax bills because they're able to, because the law allows them to, because their adviser would be negligent if they did not show them how.
Most of us cannot avail ourselves of that service and the schemes the rich use. And that annoys us - but it doesn't mean we wouldn't do it. Human nature decrees that we look after our own - and anyone who claims otherwise is delusional".
"If they're honest, lawyers should tell their clients not to bother - that transparency really is a better policy. As they see constant hints dropped in their direction and live under constant pressure of exposure, those holders of existing super-injunctions might concur."
