The identities can now be revealed of the Auckland couple accused of visiting a holiday home in Wānaka at the weekend after using their essential worker status to leave lockdown.
They are William Willis, 35, whose mother is District Court Judge Mary-Beth Sharp, and lawyer Hannah Rawnsley, 26.
The pair issued an apology on Tuesday evening, after declining to fight for further name suppression.
I think we all suspected that the Wanaka couple were white, I mean who else has the audacity to believe they can just lie about being essential workers to sneak past borders and traipse off to a million dollar bach other than privileged white people right?
But sweet black Jesus, this couple is soooooooo white they are milk on snow!
Mum’s a judge, she’s a lawyer and he’s a bloody male equestrian horse breeder?
Throw in the million dollar Queenstown ‘bach’ and the only thing that could make them whiter is National Party membership, volcanic pink salt & an Alpaca farm that plays Radio NZ and gives each Alpaca a subscription to The SpinOff.
They are only sorry because they got caught and with all the frustration of lockdown they are now the collective punching bag for the nation.
It couldn’t have happened to nicer people.
