When a Flower Shop Breaks the News to You That Nelson Mandela Has Died, It’s Time for Journalism to Have a Think

I found out of Nelson Mandela’s death not from Sky News, not from BBC News, not a national newspaper’s Twitter feed … but from an online flower shop.
I’ve written about Prestige Flowers before, because they struggle to actually deliver flowers on time and their appalling customer service, both rather basic requirement for an online flower company.
However, where they fail on the flower delivery front, they certainly succeed on the news delivery front.
