Ryan Giggs has nowhere to hide, now that his name has been brought up in Parliament as the footballer who applied for a super injunction against newspapers publishing his name as the footballer having an affair with Imogen Thomas.
Lib Dem MP John Hemming named Ryan Giggs as the player during an urgent Commons question on privacy orders. He had made use of parliamentary privilege which protects MPs and peers from prosecution for statements made in the House of Commons or House of Lords.
Scotland’s Sunday Herald had published Giggs’ name on the front page of it’s paper Sunday, claiming it was not restricted by the laws in England.
Giggs had last week applied for a High Court order to identify the users who had outed him, however that triggered a backlash as thousands of Twitter users started tweeting him out, and he suffered from the Streisand effect as all the publicity meant even more users were dying to know the real identity.
So there you have it, the mystery of the footballer who had applied for a super injunction is over.
Giggs should just about do some damage limitation by admitting it all, and start attempting to rebuild the clean image he has built up over the years.
