Face of the Day

John Key

John Key is touring Europe trying to build bridges ahead of Brexit. The trip’s also become a promotional tour for his old political nemesis.

Mr Key got the full Italian treatment and was quite taken by Italy – the meeting with its Prime Minister Matteo Renzi went well.

At one point it even seemed a bit of Rome had rubbed off – the accents between Prime Ministers virtually indistinguishable.

Another thing the Prime Ministers have in common is Helen Clark – Italy supports her bid as United Nations Secretary General.

“I’ve genuinely been pushing her case, I genuinely want her to succeed,” says Mr Key.

The Prime Ministerial tour of Europe is multi-purpose – Bastille Day, a bonus dinner with his French based daughter and former All Black Dan Carter. There’s the Clark UN charm offensive and of course Brexit. Then there’s the fact New Zealand’s seat on the Security Council expires in five months.

John Key is a great ambassador for New Zealand trade and international relations.  He’s actually a waste of time and space facing down Labour in parliament.  They aren’t actually worth his time.
