At least they aren’t Wogistanis

Prince Philip is in trouble again…gosh people are easily outraged:

The Duke of Edinburgh has told a Filipino nurse that her country must be “half empty” because so many of her compatriots work for the NHS.

The 91-year-old joked with staff during a visit to Luton and Dunstable Hospital, where he unveiled a £5.5million cardiac centre.

Describing himself as being in a “jovial” mood, he said he was the “world’s most experienced curtain puller” and asked when the hospital would be getting a helipad to save him the journey by car.

He then told one of the nurses: “The Philippines must be half empty – you’re all here running the NHS.” She laughed in response. 

Prince Philip is renowned for his controversial gaffes. During a state visit to China in 1986, he told British students that they would become “slitty-eyed” if they stayed there.

In 1994 he caused offence after asking a resident on the Cayman Islands: “Aren’t most of you descended from pirates?”

Four years later, speaking to a student who had been trekking in Papua New Guinea, he said: “You managed not to get eaten then.”

In 2002, he asked Australian aborigines during a foreign visit: “Do you still throw spears at each other then?”

So far the only group of people he doesn’t seem to have offended are the Wogistanis…perhaps he should give Richard prosser a call.
