Prince Philip to Pinay Nurse--PH Must Be Half-Empty

The Duke of Edinburgh was only apparently joking when he told a Filipina nurse that the Philippines must be “half-empty,” but he was right in summarizing the state of overseas Filipino workers, reports ABS-CBN News. In a report in the Telegraph UK, the 91-year-old Prince Philip told a Filipina nurse working at the Luton and Dunstable Hospital: "The Philippines must be half-empty - you're all here running the [National Health Service].” The nurse could only laugh. Prince Philip visited the hospital to unveil a £5.5 million cardiac center.
