Pommy tourists from hell visit New Zealand, thousands join forces to have them deported
Ah, the British. There’s really two ways of looking at them. Depending on your perspective, they might be exceedingly posh b*stards who eat cucumber sandwiches, drink tea and look down their noses at everyone, or they might just be beer-swilling assholes known for travelling to a foreign country, acting like they own the place and generally playing up like second-hand whipper-snippers. In the case of a now ‘infamous’ family, the modus operandi is very much the latter.
It’s still January, but it looks like we already have what might be one of 2019’s truly great stories. You may have heard about it, but if not, you’re in for a treat. Basically, a bunch of pommie b*stards – purportedly from Liverpool – have travelled to Kiwiland for their holiday, and in just a short time, they’ve been called ‘assholes’ by the mayor of Auckland, threatened with deportation, refused to pay for meals in restaurants, and been busted stealing a Christmas tree.
Deadset, there’s even a petition calling for them to be booted out of NZ up on Change.org. At the time of writing, nearly five thousand have signed it and the number is climbing. And, as you can see, the reasons are numerous. The Kiwis, usually a fairly chilled group, have had their ire stirred, and they are really f**ken pissed about these tourists.
It all started when they left rubbish on the bewdiful Takapuna beach on NZ’s north island. From there, the young fella who looks to be about five swore at people and threatened to knock their bloody heads in.
Since then, Hell Pizza has launched a pizza mocking the unruly buggers, Air New Zealand has mocked them in an advertisement marketing flights out of New Zealand, and Auckland mayor Phil Goff literally called them a bunch of assholes.
However, in fairness to the controversial family, they claim they’re innocent. One of the rogues, John Johnson, told the media that, “We are not Irish. We are not gypsies either. We are English citizens. We are a respectable family. We are a British family who have come here, as a Commonwealth country, to see New Zealand.”
John said they came to NZ to see the hobbits, but, “The way we have been treated, intimidated, we are scared to leave, we are scared to move, we are hiding at the moment. We don’t know what to do. It was all a big misunderstanding and I believe we’ve been treated very badly and should just be left alone.”
Final thought: In fairness, once the mob is angered, things can spiral out of control, but come on, these are Kiwis. You really do have to work hard to piss them off and there’s a bunch of video evidence showing that you might not really be on the level, Mr Johnson. What do you blokes and blokettes reckon?
