So finally the worst kept secret since the identity of Who Shot JR is out in the open. Ryan Giggs has been unmasked as the Unnamed Footballer who allegedly slept with That Girl Off Big Brother.
The frustrating thing about all the whole sorry mess is that it could so easily have been avoided; ultimately it was the superinjunction that his lawyers took out to conceal his ID which proved to be his downfall. You can’t help feeling a little sorry for ole Giggsy, in that he surely has been very badly advised.
I would never criticise someone for trying to protect their children from the potentially unpalatable truth of their private life; but from the moment Giggs/his lawyers declared that he was ‘suing twitter’ he was undone. It was such a laughable, arrogantly stupid move, there was only one possible outcome.
In the words of Lucy from Peanuts: You blockhead, Ryan Giggs.
