Trev, minor point but Peter Shack was not the Shadow Health Minister in January 1993. Bob Woods was.
Trev, I loved the excuse: "The call was never meant to get through; we were supposed to get hung up on". Um. But it did get through. And it was broadcast. Mark Latham was instructive on this last night on PM Live when he said (to paraphrase): Let's forget about the fact a nurse took her own life, which of itself is horrible. When it's all stripped back, this was a pair of DJs who, under false pretenses, phoned a hospital to obtain and broadcast the private medical details of an ill and pregnant woman. Irrespective of who that woman was, it was a gross invasion of her privacy. Spot on.
