I guess this post is going to get me into trouble given the tragic death of the nurse at the centre of this mess but I think the media has got it all wrong in going after the two Oz 'pranksters' who made the telephone call to King Edward V11 Hospital pretending to be the Queen and the DoE and asking for an update on the health of the Duchess of Cambridge.
One commentator even suggested they could be guilty of Treason in attempting to impersonate the Queen .... give me a break.
IMHO anger should be directed at the hospital for failing to have protocols in place to screen out hoax/unwanted calls. King Edward V11 Hospital has many 'celebrity' patients and I would have thought that it was axiomatic that the hospital switchboard operator be given a simple codeword that would identify genuine callers. Not rocket science and it certainly happens in a number of other like circumstances.
Guess I'm feeling particularly grumpy this morning and don't even get me started on NZ Cricket and Ross Taylor.
