(Newser) – British police won't be charging the Australian DJs who prank-called a London hospital, pretending to be the queen, with tragic consequences. However, today they asked Australian police to consider criminal charges against Mel Greig and Michael Christian, Reuters reports. British prosecutors found no evidence of wrongdoing under British law, but the London police have sent the case file over to Australia and would like authorities there to investigate "whether any offenses were committed under Australian legislation," according to a statement. Meanwhile, Greig is reportedly taking legal action against 2Day FM for allegedly not providing a safe place to work.

Pity that being a cold-hearted and inconsiderate ass is now an international standard of behavior and not just restricted to American disc jockeys and "reality" casts.

Every time I come across "Phone Tap" on Kiss FM, I think about how douchy radio hosts are 99% of the time and hope that some day someone will go batSh**crazy from one and take it out on someone else, just so it'll be taken off the air.
