Fit And Proper: Welsh Woman Barred From Entering New Zealand

But Welsh girl Rowan has been told that she does not fit in with New Zealand’s image and must loose weight if she is to enter, much less fit in.

Employing the rigours of the (Fit And Proper Person) Body Mass Index, a fat measurement system based on height and weight, Kiwis ordered Rowan and her portly husband Richie to run along and return fitter and more suited.

Richie ran. He lost the pounds. He retook the test. He passed. He scored a visa. And he left to start a new life in New Zealand.

And now Rowan has until Christmas to comply. If she fails Richie will return to Britain, as he says.

Says she: “The immigration department can’t afford to import people who are going to be a significant drain on our health resources.”

Now, as the Sun reports, Rowan is “weighting” to go.The only shame is that Mrs Trezise is not the subject of a docusoap, viewers looking on as “larger than life” Rowan is put though her paces by an American drill sergeant from Guantanamo Bay.

And our host, Les Dennis, says now he knows why Kiwi birds can’t get off the ground…
