“Philandering” Politician’s Love Child Awarded £15,000

The High Court have banned Associated News papers from naming a “philandering” politician again and more specifically, his love child. Associated have also been ordered to pay £15,000 in damages for publishing photographs of the child – named only as AAA – and any further reference or photos are prohibited.

The court heard that the politician was married at the time of the affair and has had a string of extra-marital liaisons in the past, including getting a previous mistress pregnant. The elected politician, still serving in office, was described as “reckless, philandering, adulterous and has betrayed his wife. He has achieved a level of notoriety as a result of extramarital adulterous liaisons”. Apparently photographing the child pointed to who their distinctive looking father is. Who could it possibly be?

    I don’t think you’re right to say that AP have been banned from naming the philandering politician.

    The full judgment is available here: http://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWHC/QB/2012/2103.html. If you look at para 131, you will see that the Court rejected an injunction to prevent further publication on the matter. Also, at para 119, the Court held that “publication of the fact of the [child’s] birth in the circumstances alleged was justified”.

    The £15,000 damages were for publication of photos of the child, nothing else.

    I see nothing in this which prevents publication of the name of the phildandering politician or the fact of his affair and that it has given rise to a child.

    It’s very obvious who it is.

Plus yet again he was singing The EVIL Masters name His most Insincere Holiness St.Toxic Tony,He who walks on Water and performs miracles for millions, any hard currency purlioned from any source.
    It just seems that CMD is really going out of his way to ensure he loses the next

    Does CMD have some type of commission arrangement with UKIP ? as every time he opens his mouth all he does is drive more & more voters there way.

    Surely what he does in his private life is a matter between him, his wife and the thrid party. Unles of course he has justified supporting certain policy stances at odds with his actions.

    Nothing could be further from the truth. If he is prepared to lie to those he is supposed to hold most dear then he will think nothing of lying to the rest of us. The fact that you cant see that is worrying.Name the LIAR , not in my name !

    I need to know who it is. An MP is not entitled to a private life like the rest of us are. An MP is in the position of being able to write laws that affect us. We therefore need to know how they live. I may wish to ensure that a philanderer represents me in Parliament. Or may wish that he didnt.

    “The central allegation was that the politician had fathered a child with the claimant’s mother at a time when he was married to somebody else, when the claimant’s mother was in a relationship with another person and, shortly after conception, the claimant’s mother had received the benefit of a post under the auspices of the politician’s appointment. The fact of the claimant’s mother holding the post added to the weight of public interest. Without it the story would have been published but it would have been a closer call. The approach was based upon the merits of the information and the photograph in the context of the story, balanced against the use of the child’s photograph and what consequences there might be for the child if the picture were to be published. ”


    “Boris Johnson is at the centre of a riddle surrounding the paternity of a wealthy socialite’s baby daughter.
    Helen Macintyre, 36, split from her long-term partner shortly after the baby was born last November when he discovered through a DNA test that he was not the father.”


    “But a friend of Mr Rolin said: ‘The gossip among Pierre’s friends was that this child, when newborn, had shocking wild red hair and bright blue eyes – and we were all saying she looked a lot more like Boris than Pierre, who is a French-Canadian with dark hair. ”

    No mention of the mother.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
