Appropriate adjectives for the average kiwi businessperson

[NOTE: Perfidious, greedy, feckless, thieving, knave, immoral … are apt descriptions.]

In the old days, in most parts of the world, what the kiwi tourism bandits are doing would have been tantamount to highway robbery, punishable by hanging.

Today, they call it “Rugby World Cup prices,” and get the despicable hotel council chairwoman defending it by saying if the prices were too high, visitors would go elsewhere.

How about going elsewhere to Australia?

And that’s exactly what the the British tour operator Gullivers Sports Travel UK is considering: Flying the fans to Auckland games and then to Sydney to stay the night, in a reasonably priced accommodation, instead of paying the Hamilton hoteliers the cost of an arm and a leg.

It’s difficult to imagine how much the reedy b*stards are charging to make the Sydney fly back option, or even chartering a cruise ship alternative, which they are also considering, viable.

The average price of NZ$ 2,500 per double room per night in the average flea motel is confidential, of course. Furthermore, there is compulsory two-night stay (or pay)  throughout the event, except the last weekend, when it increases to three nights.

Australian tour operators have also complained about the extortionate hotels costs during the tournament. “Some have said that fans from across the Tasman would prefer fly to New Zealand, watch the games and fly out again rather than pay the rates being asked by hoteliers.” A report said.

“We are confident that the free market will provide solutions so that hotels that are overcharging will have to reduce their prices or face the prospect of empty beds during RWC 2011.” Rugby World Cup chief executive Martin Snedden said.

Holy busted balls, Martin Snedden, if this is not taking a captive audience to the cleaners and pumping their butts with Anchor butter …

The managing director of the Australian We Love Rugby tour company, Warren Livingstone, has complained that some hotels have hiked their rates by up to 1000 percent [tenfold] for the event, warning that fans would stay away rather than pay such extortionate prices.

“Australians love New Zealand and we love coming there for the rugby, as we do every year by the thousands for the Bledisloe Cup. But it won’t be at any cost,” Mr Livingstone said.

“We have over 4000 fans pre-registered for 2011 but Australians won’t just pay ridiculous prices, we’ll look at other rugby events to travel to like the end of season spring tour to Europe.”

Hoteliers Justification for the Ripoff?

If foreign fans are stupid enough to travel up to 24 hours to watch grownup men scratching, biting and robbing their genitals against each other…
