Jacintha Saldanha and The Royals

Jacintha Saldanha

Is it just me, or has this whole hoax call thing got a bit out of hand?

Jacintha Saldanha, on the left, was the lady who answered the hoax call from two Australian DJ’s pretending to be Royals checking on the progress of Kate Middleton.

When it first made the headlines I don’t remember anyone saying it was a dangerous thing to do, the worst I heard was that it was in bad taste.

It’s extremely sad that Jacintha Saldanha felt the need to take her own life but she must have had underlying issues that the DJ’s couldn’t have known about – I’m sure they wouldn’t have made the call if that had been the case.

There is talk of prosecuting them but the only charge that might stick is recording a phone call without getting permisssion and whether that would include calls outside the country I would think is doubtful.

Instead of writing strong letters to Australia, maybe the bosses at the hospital should be asked to explain why they had no trained staff available on the night who could have handled the call correctly. If  I was paying the sort of money William and Kate are, I would be expecting better.

On a brighter note, it was good to see William cancelled one of his engagements to be with Kate. After all, we can all just choose not to go to work when our other halves don’t feel well ….. can’t we?

    Funny enough I was thinking it was all getting out of hand. I feel terribly sorry for the nurse and her family. I do think the DJs were stupid, and should lose their jobs, and also anyone else should who backed them up.
