For a discussion, there needs to be some explanation as to why it is unacceptable to praise colleagues
What job was he doing for the NHS? Air Ambulance (and most of us will have read about the "time-off" he had there placing additional workload on others!).
And how did he get there? By walking out early on his RAF training contract - something that anybody else doing that would have had to repay £400,000 (but "not in the "National Interest" for "our Will and Kate").
So he did work with the NHS, and is praising his colleagues.
Progress........ now all you have to do is explain how the Search and Rescue at RAF Valley functioned without any contact with the NHS
Working for search and rescue does not give somebody much insight or experience of the day to day service provided to those in need.
But walking out 4 years early on a contract where anybody else would have to repay £400,000 and being "let-off" the repayment because you are a "royal" is wrong (and defining it as being "in the national interest" is just treating the public with contempt). Search & Rescue pilot training is very very expensive and the taxpayer pays that on the basis that people walking out early on their contracts repay pro-rata (8 years contracts). Training for Royals is pad for by the taxpayer and the contracts are the same - 8 years to justify the training cost.
