The Labour party used to mock John Key for worldwide negative headlines. You can’t get much worse than these, however. Quite the come down from ‘Vogue’.

Even worse, it must be galling to see your beloved party in articles in New Zealand where links are provided to Rape Crisis and Sexual Assault help lines.

I guess it could have been much worse. It’s just sexual assault allegations. It isn’t like they were crushing up Ritalin tablets and snorting them off the table, or an MP’s partner buying a bag of coke just after the election. Now that would be serious.
