Footballer seeks to see emails
Following the Imogen Thomas blackmail revelations (there are always two sides to a story and in this tale one is anon and the other is gagged so who can we believe?) the Financial Times (subscription only) noted the following:
"Hugh Tomlinson QC, acting for the footballer who allegedly had an affair with Imogen Thomas, told the High Court that his disclosure application followed comments made by Sun columnist Kelvin MacKenzie on the BBC’s Today programme.
The former Sun editor told the programme he was flooded by e-mails from readers asking who had secured injunctions against the newspaper. “Sometimes I give [the names], sometimes I don’t,” Mr MacKenzie added."
Now we understand a footballer is asking to see all the emails and texts of a media outlet where his name appears.
Looks like the footballers are taking over ...
