The crimson tide sweeps over Belconnen’s Prince Palace

By johnboy 1 April 2012 31

prince palace prohibition order

The seemingly unending waves of prohibition notices sweeping over the ACT in the wake of the Silo Laws enactment (restauranteurs will really be thanking the Silo Bakery team for pushing the envelope) has now hit the Prince Palace on Belconnen’s Emu Bank.

If you see a prohibition notice be sure to snap a pic and fire it in to images@the-riotact.com .

Hi ho

I haven’t seen one of these closure notices. Are they specific in their allegations? If not they should be. The public has a right to know whether the establishment is actually endangering their health or is just a bit lax with the bookwork or fails on a technicality. I remember sitting in my favourite eatery one lunchtime when an irate public servant started banging on about a meet delivery remaining for quite a while on the concrete outside. It didn’t look good but it was 4’C outside that day, colder than most fridges. Things aint always what they seem.

The reasons for the closure must be specific, though the red notice itself isn’t. The detailed reasons are stated on a separate form which some establishments have put up beside the red notice. I’m not sure if the additional forms though are mandatory for display like the red notice is.

MsAnnoyed sums it up nicely: “my money and my business is more important than the your right to food safety”.

If all your ‘friends’ have the same attitude as you, then I’m glad that they were shut down for four days – and I hope that they keep failing their inspections until they either change their attitude and take food safety seriously, or they go belly up before poisoning some innocent third party.

Agreed. People die from food poisoning, those food safety laws exist for a reason. It’s really not that hard, don’t violate the regulations and you wont be closed down. If you think that the existing regulations are too tough too meet, well I hope you go belly up too, there are plenty of operators around willing to do the right thing.

“The crimson tide sweeps over Belconnen’s Prince Palace” – jeez, it’s a long way to come from Alabama!

ANU will shortly be hosting a group of students from UA who come to do a couple comparative law classes during their summer break, but somehow I think we won’t be taking them along here.

It’s an attitude you encounter a lot in Australian businesses, small and some no-so small. Apparently, because they turn up and work hard, the world owes them a living.

No, they just don’t like governments interfering with their ability to make money. Which is understandable given that most small business owners stand to lose their house/livelihood if the money stops flowing.

D’oh! I love the dumpling house! Not that I’m endorsing poor health practices, but if my guts can hold up to three years living in SE Asia (doing the “intrepid ex-pat” thing), then I’m pretty sure the dumpling house can’t take me down!

All I got from Ms Annoyed’s rant was blah blah blah clean your kitchen blah blah blah. Thanks for that – I’ll get right onto it!

XY was closed over the weekend aswell? Is this related

That place has been shut down a number of times in the past 18 months for this type of thing, it should not be allowed open again!

Restaurateur, not restauranteur. Unless it’s McDonald’s.
