Google Me

Google Me
Lottery winner Gareth Bull has obtained an injunction blocking the sale of a book written by his mistress. Donna Desporté's Google Me: No Lies was published last month, though it can no longer be sold in the UK. A legal precedent was set last year when the UK's Supreme Court ruled that there is "no public interest, however much it may be of interest to some members of the public, in publishing kiss-and-tell stories".

Desporté describes "that faithful day [sic.], the day I met Gareth Bull" and their "many nights of champagne and passion". Her self-published book has clearly not been edited or even proof-read: the cover is a typographer's worst nightmare, and there are multiple errors in every single paragraph.
