    Default Why is the private life of Gerald Kean newsworthy?

    A number of newspapers this weekend have run stories about the private life of Gerald Kean.

    If reports are accurate, he has split up with his girlfriend.

    There was a big picture of the guy on the front of the Indo yesterday. And page 4 of the Sindo today is given over in its entirety to an analysis of this, er, personal tragedy.

    Now, I know I'm an idiot. Sincere thanks to those of you who took time out during the week to explain to me the correct pronunciation of 'Lucinda Creighton.'

    But I really, really don't understand the constant media obsession with the love life of this particular solicitor.

    Can someone, please, help me out here and explain, in simple language, why Gerald Kean is famous?

    I was trying to avoid framing the question in those terms.

    a very "fat cat" solicitor who gets far too much attention from the media here. supposedly a big-fish in a small pond. In other words he's nobody really....

    He is simply remarkable because he dropped the "e" at the end of his name.
