Entire Town Is Fawlty

 

Updated : Apr 23, 2009


VeryHappyPig has been thrown out, and subsequently barred from many of an establishment, but VHP blames the lack of a sense of humour and understanding from bouncers in each case.

But just when VHP thought we had it bad and were going to bemoan grumpy and quick to temper door staff and management we came across this story from New Zealand.

The Australian owner of a New Zealand motel and his Scottish "Basil Fawlty" manager have banned an entire town, including its member of parliament.

Steve Donnelly, owner of the Supreme Motor Lodge in the North Island town of Palmerston North, said he became fed up with the rowdy behaviour of sports teams from Wainuiomata, a town near the capital, Wellington.

So he and manager Malcolm Glen, who according the motel's own website is better known as "Basil Fawlty" after the highly strung John Cleese TV character, banned the whole town of 17,000 people.

"Having had about a hundred people from there over the last couple of years and maybe one that we liked... it is not worth it and we would do the same to anyone who causes us that level of stress," Donnelly told the Dominion Post newspaper.

When Wainuiomata's member of parliament and former cabinet minister Trevor Mallard tested the ban Wednesday by trying to book in, Glen gave him his marching orders.

"As a Scotsman I don't have a vote, it doesn't matter to me, you're banned," Glen told the legislator.
