Holy Grail owner ignorant of Downs Syndrome

By Pandy 2 April 2008 50

I am totally outraged that Ian Meldrum the owner of the Holy Grail businesses was reported on page 3 of the Canberra Times today:

“You can’t have a Down syndrome person serving tables-as cruel as it sounds-because you can’t have someone dribbling saliva over people who are eating.”

Is this Ian guy for real or just drunk when he said that?

What’s Your opinion?

The place is a dump anyway. But with less patronage I should have a shorter wait for my food to arrive.

Pauline Hanson and her gang used to party there, so the Grail’s standards aren’t exactly high.

I never go to the Holy Grail so cannot comment on their employees but do note that some of the staff at La Porchetta seem challenged.

C’mon guys, 44 posts and not one reference to Molly. LTFU! :p

Maelinar, read my posts first. I said, “all this does is highlight the ignorance of the general populace.” I don’t think this will have a major impact on his patronage one way or the other. Nobody reads the CT much anyway.

Another small fact that seems to have slipped under the radar is the reason for this lowlife’s court appearance. It seems he underpaid a number of workers and got caught out. At his last appearance he was ordered to make good these underpayments, and signed an order agreeing with the court’s findings. Now he doesn’t think he should pay what he said he would and has treated the whole episode as a bit of a joke.

I believe that there are enough other watering holes and feeding establishments in this town to satisfy the most fussy eater and drinker, that we should all just NOT go Holy Grails. Let this scum feel it where it hurts.
