British Rugby Writer Peter Bills says New Zealanders Are “Rip-off” Merchants!
That’s a fact that most everyone in the world who has heard anything about the [poxy,] sodomite country knows by now, though the word cutthroat precedes the fleecing adjective.
But Mr Bills should also warn his readers about the inordinate number of foreigners who are killed in New Zealand, and which this blog has reported.
The chances are more visiting rugby fans would catch deadly diseases, seriously sickened, or killed during Rugby Cup 2011 in New Zealand than have in any previous sport tournament anywhere in the world.
Additionally, New Zealand’s deadly roads would claim many more lives in 2011 than ever before.
More rugby fans would also be robbed, assaulted, raped, or killed in 2011 than have in any previous year.
UNFORTUNATELY, we may never know the exact number of rugby 2011 casualties in New Zealand.
Reporter slams ‘rip-off’ New Zealand
British rugby writer Peter Bills has slammed New Zealand for its “horrifyingly” high prices.
The journalist has labelled Aotearoa “a rip-off” and says he’s shocked at the steep prices charged by bars, restaurants, hotels and care hire outlets.
In a piece written for the NZ Herald, Bills reveals his concern that tourists arriving for the 2011 Rugby World Cup will be put off by the whopping price tags on ordinary goods.
“This place is becoming one of the most expensive I visit, one giant rip-off,” he says.
“True, petrol is much cheaper than in Britain. But in just about every other field, hotels, car hire, restaurant food, wine, clothes or whatever, you’re the victims of massive overcharging.”
He goes on to detail many instances during his time in NZ when he’s paid over the odds for parking, drinks, meals and hotels.
Bills says he’s worried visitors to NZ are “being fleeced” – and word is getting out.
“Does any of this matter?” he asks. “After all, it’s only tourists who might get fleeced and they won’t be back every year. And the Rugby World Cup which is being held here next year might be the last time it is hosted exclusively by New Zealand.
“So hey guys, grab what you can in hiked up profits, make a fortune and smile all the way to the bank. Right? No, wrong, dead wrong.
“International travellers are not fools; fewer will come if New Zealand is known as too expensive.”
