Danger, Danger! Internet Access!

Jack Huddart was playing with the console at Leeds General Infirmary when he accessed the photograph.
*gasp*
His outraged granddad Philip Wilson also saw the picture, of a scantily clad woman, before he managed to clear the screen.
And the usual overreaction:
Now staff have taken internet access off all the combined television and computer screens on the ward and an investigation is being held.
*sigh* What was the offending picture, anyway?
The youngster, from Chapel Allerton, Leeds, was playing with the touch screen console when he inadvertantly clicked on a search for the former prime minister’s wife Cherie Blair which brought up the photo. Mr Wilson said the photo showed a bikini-clad woman, on which Mrs Blair’s head had been superimposed, in a suggestive pose.
Oh! Well, I can understand the shock now. At first glance, it must have appeared to be an ACTUAL picture of a bikini-clad Cherie!
Mr Wilson said: “It’s just not acceptable on a kids’ ward.”
That sort of thing isn’t acceptable anywhere, Mr Wilson.
“These should not be accessible to anyone in a hospital.”
Ah. So…it’s not just a case of ‘For the chiiiilllldreeeen!’ then?
Another parent said she accidentally accessed explicit images of model Jodie Marsh on her son’s bedside screen. Jacqueline Honey said she was relieved that her four-year-old son Tommie had not seen them. Mrs Honey, of Swarcliffe, Leeds, said: “The last place you’d think your child would be in danger from the internet is in their hospital bed. It’s wrong.”
‘Danger from the Internet’..?

"When the parents complained to the ward sister, she immediately summoned staff from Hospedia, the private firm contracted to provide the service.

This ward sister should be hauled up on charges of Abuse Of NHS Funds.

ALL internet browsers have the option to set a "safe" search. One click and it is done - for free.

Perhaps they'll think of doing that when the little darlings start screaming for internet access again ?

That kid and his grandad really aren't going to be popular with any other kid who's in there now or has to go into hospital in future.

Epic Fail all round methinks.

@ranetr

yessir, ticks all the boxes for Chavscum:
* suspiciously young grandfather
* who dresses up for the photo in his Sunday best
* ate all the pies John Prescott could not find
* does not understand what the Intarweb is
* whines about something that's free - to him, anyway.

Well done, Philip Wilson, you have won the Chavscum award of the day. Now go get your gold star.

"This ward sister should be hauled up on charges of Abuse Of NHS Funds."

She's probably unable to do anything else, by terms of the contract the NHS signed with the company.

"Well done, Philip Wilson, you have won the Chavscum award of the day."

Indeed!

There's a clause in there that states they can't just unplug something in the the kids rooms ? Wow, who knew ? ;)

*sarcasm directed at the ward sister...not you, of course...

Dear God, pictures of a scantily clad Cherie Blair? Oh noooo! The Humanity! My Eyes! You've put an image in my mind that will take soaking my brain in bleach to make it go away.

From the comments:
I wonder if smaller tea cups exist that have even smaller storms in them.

Perhaps this calls for a companion picture to the world's tiniest violin.

I take it they didn't see the picture of her sunbathing on a yacht which one wag on Guido wickedly captioned "Thar she blows".

Now, I've just done a Google image search for "Cherie Blair". All I can say is that the ones where her head is pasted onto the body of a scantily-clad model are, far and away, the least frightening and disturbing. In some of those photos, she is smiling.

I think I might need counselling.
