Behind every successful man…

It used to be the case that behind every successful MAN, there was a POWERUL, usually HIDDEN( LOW PROFILE) , young and SEXY and VERY MANIPULATIVE WOMAN !.

History is abound of such women ( from Servilla Caepionis, mother of Brutus, & lover of Caesar, like Cleopatra, Mme de Pompadour, Jeanne Antoinette Poisson, mistress of Louis XV, Anne Boleyn of Henry VIII, Carla Bruni of Sarkozy, etc [ the list is exhaustive!]. 

But in Pleasure Land, we have gone full circle (all to the credit of the WEAKER SEX (!). We now have behind every successful WOMAN, one (or perhaps several) SECRET MAN […]. Famous historical mistresses are known to be excessively ambitious beyond the limits of “what money can buy”. Material wealth cannot “satisfy” their bedroom appetite. Cleopatra, bedding both Caesar and Mark Anthony, had high hopes for her son Caeserion, fathered by Caesar that he will one day rule over Egypt and Rome. In contemporary times, Camilla Parker-Boyles wanted to be Queen of England, so the Real Queen of Hearts (a much younger and more beautiful and Real contender for the Title) had to make way, by hooks or by crooks, in this sordid “MÉNAGE A TROIS”.  

While we are cognisant that “The faith of the Empire was ruled from the silk of the Boudoir” and that it takes 3 people to carry the chains of marriage because they are so heavy (!), and even though Mistresses can prop up KINGS, they can also bring down DYNASTIES.  Publicity has a double-edge impact. Once tasted, the Public gets addicted and if the Press do not oblige, the Public demonstrate incurable withdrawal symptoms. L’appétit vient en mangeant, n’est-ce pas ![ Not to forget that Sales of Newspaper goes berserk and Newspaper Proprietors laugh all the way to the bank].  

However, on a serious note, we are yet to have a serious debate on the real issues […].  As the Learned Judge suggested, we ought to have a clear definition, both in Law and in practice, as to where do Freedom of Expression ends and where Privacy starts. This is a “How long is a piece of string” riddle”. Perhaps we ought to heed on the advice of the late UK Master of the Rolls, Lord Denning who was once asked to define the limits of freedom of Expression. And in typical Denning punch, he declared: “Everyone is free to throw their fist in the air but that freedom stops where someone else’s nose starts”. [ This Denning maxim is not recommended for the Pinocchio’s of this world, unless of course you consult a Plastic surgeon or else you will end up with a “ Bloody Nose”.  There are 3 issues that trouble me – I’ll expand in my next Post.
