Regular readers who know of his regard for Ms McCarthy can imagine how devastated Adam was when he saw this on the NZ Herald banner . Imagine Adam’s surprise when he
read the fragrant hackette’s column (as Private Eye and others would say). The Irish lass explained why she supported the Palmerston North motelier who banned residents of Wainuiomata this week.
Apart from anything else she remembered her own bad behaviour, but what endeared Adam, endeared never did he think he would say that about the fragrant one, to Ms Mcarthy was this comment:-
Now I have a certain amount of sympathy for Steve – he’s Australian for one thing, which gives you an idea of how bad the carry-on must have been to upset him.
Plus, he showed no compunction in firing Trev Mallard out the door when he tried to get a bed for the night. No, Steve’s not all bad. I feel for him, but I’m grateful nevertheless that my own behaviour a few years back hasn’t occasioned the same blanket ban on Irish guests by a certain establishment in Lower Hutt.
On Mallard grounds alone, she deserves a commendation.
Some of the imagery conjured up by Ms McCarthy has caused Adam to consider tha Angus Motor Inn in a whole new light.
