Sympathy? Don’t make me laugh

Bad humour has a horrible habit of going terribly wrong. Pranks and practical jokes, by their very nature, rely on causing their victims pain.
Have your say
I can't see much wrong with Kieron G's post, its clearly PaulM who is "making up his own interpretations and casting aspersions". Unless of course you are going to say that you are naive enough to believe every word you read in the national press.
There is one fact here, nobody knows what made this woman take the course of action she did. For all you know she may have been about to commit suicide before the high profile admissions to her hospital and didn't get the privacy to do so until after the royal party had left. You do not know, I do not know, nobody knows. So stop pretending that you do.
PaulM Suicide has not been a criminal offence since 1961. You cannot assume that the nurse took her own life because of the silly phone call. As a former nurse I believe I would have been disciplined for giving out confidential information; are we sure this wasn't the case, and that lack of support from the staff at a private hospital who may have felt embarrassed and do not want to lose the patronage of the Royal family may have contributed to her decision? As for the DJ's surely it is their editor/manager who is responsible as it was a pre recorded call and the decision to broadcast was not theirs. The whole affair is tragic and I feel sorry for the family and the DJ's. As the sister of someone who killed himself, I know you can never really know why.
PaulM - we'll have to agree to disagree on that.
You don't strike me as a person worth debating with.
However, got to pick you up on that line where you say suicide is a crime. It's not.
The Suicide Act 1961 saw to that.
