    The first of many victims for Royal Baby 2013, or "El Diablo" as I'm tentatively naming it.

    you scoff, but David Icke is typing that into a blog post as we speak.

    Yes, totally incompetent. It's sort of a moot point now though.

    Well that's cleared that up.

    They were nurses, covering someone elses job at 5:30 in the morning. I don't think it is really fair to call them incompetent.

    The first one answered the phone when someone else was supposed to be covering it, and the second one was passed a call and probably assumed it had been vetted.

    Yeah, she should really have hung up then rather than today.

    Incompetent could be a little harsh - after all, how copus mentus are any of us at 3:30am? And if English isn't your first language and you've had absolutely no training on handling a situation like that (she'd only been there a few years), a lot of people *could* easily get caught off guard.

    Besides, for all we know, members of the Royal family could well have been calling for an update every few hours. It's not beyond the realms of possibility that someone *could* have called, albeit, quite obviously not in this case.

    Hindsight's always 20/20! Just putting it out there - let's see what the facts bear out. No-ones coming out of this smelling of roses...

    You would kind of hope that people who provide medical care are fairly lucid at that time of night.

    Useless speculation: you are probably pretty awake at 3.30 if it was a planned nightshift.

    You are probably not ready or trained in any way for a situation where someone who's every move you cannot help but be aware of over the past year comes in with a problem and carrying AN HEIR TO THE REALM HARRUMPH etc etc.

    Surely the Royal coterie has some 'communication 101' handouts for the plebs they might need to be in touch with in places like hospitals?

    @nickthegun Agreed - but that's what you're trained for, and one assumes that secondary care in a private hospital at 3am is a fairly quiet shift. However, if you're covering reception or whatever appears to have happened here, you're probably not that prepared for a prank call from Aussie DJs. Admittedly with awful accents.

    As I said above though, it's hard not to jump to conclusions on this, but we have to wait and see what the facts bear out. Could be that she had underlying mental health issues, for instance.

    Media blackout for this baby before it's even born I'm guessing.

    Both of them appear to have deleted their Twitter accounts.

    One assumes that whatever the immediate outcome for them, it'll probably scar them for life.

    If it doesn't the conspiracy theorists who will propose that they were acting on behalf of the Royals and ordering a hit of some sort, definitely will.

    It's strange that the royals don't employ someone to handle the press at the hospital, talk with the doctors, and relay messages back and forth to the royals. Maybe they do but it all seems a bit haphazard.

    But with no information. It's impressively prescient to call someone incompetent.

    What two Aussies pissing themselves pretending to be the queen? Advanced stuff.

    Again, I think given what's happened it's a discussion point that doesn't really have any significance, however, incompetent is fair. It's generous in fact. Have you actually head the call? It is completely unbelievable that anyone would think that was the Queen for so many reasons, not least of all because the person sounded like an Australian man.

    But regardless, given what's happened it's a bit like discussing whether Diana's car needed a clean or something.

    @kalel I did hear the call yeah - like I say in the text you've quoted, it was quite obviously not the case in this instance that it was a royal calling. I suppose I'm just wary of jumping to any conclusions about what was going on at the time.

    You're right of course that it's a bit of a moot point at the moment!

    I think it is, because let's face it, not many people give a shit about the actual baby.

    I feel it's only right that Kate and Wills name their new cursed baby after the dead woman it made do a suicide.
