    Find it pretty poor (and entirely expected) that same ****ty media outlets who hung this poor girl out to dry are the ones who are turning the heat up on these guys, too. If there's anyone with blood on their hands...

    Oh, and the other ****ty thing is when people, in criticising these two, run the argument that "oh, it wasn't even funny" as if a funny joke makes everything OK.

    Yeah, agree with this but at the same time prank calls to a hospital about someones medical condition is a total dog act, funny or not.

    Tragic incident really anyways, and has become big news here in India too with her whole family based in Karnataka.

    I mean, realistically, if you are ringing an English hospital pretending to the be the Queen, there's no way you actually think it is going to work.

    A tragedy, but who is at fault?

    Absolutely agree

    That said, prank calls are lame

    Sizable reversal for Labor in the last Newspoll of the year, but not as sizable as the reversal for James Ashby, whose sexual harassment case against Peter Slipper has this mor ing been thrown out of court as an abuse of process designed to damage Slipper politically.

    By having the texts revealed, I guess the Opposition got what they wanted from it in the end.

    I am not being falsely modest by saying that the latest Newspoll was a disappointment - ask any ruthless Liberal supporter

    As one Labor wag was quoted as saying: "Where there is Abbott, there is hope"

    When you get into the privacy of the polling booth, like Latham, you just can't do it
