A Friend first, and a Boss second, probably an Entertainer third.

“I’m a friendly guy that likes to interact with the public. I do like to have a bit of a laugh and I’m probably the most casual Prime Minister New Zealand has had.” John Key. Q+A.
The most casual Prime Minister New Zealand has had. And, boy, doesn’t it show.
Helen Clark had such attention to detail she managed to run budget surpluses, lower unemployment and lift wages. But, hey, chillax, peeps! John’s got this. The good news is that Andrew Little does actually know what a hard day’s work entails, and has a focus on getting the job done. New Zealand deserves nothing less.
Not satisfied with being an international laughing stock, Key really thinks that admitting being a slacker is going to endear him to the folks back home, who are all looking at him in an entirely new light since Wednesday’s revelations. Dumb and dumber.
“Key said his casual approach had both advantages and disadvantages.”
Disadvantages may include sexual harassment and general inappropriate touching of females. (ht Idlegus!)
“I have to take total responsibility for that. I shouldn’t have done the things I have done.”
Sweet. Then you’ll be resigning as soon as you get back? Nah, thought not.
“I think it’s the opposite to what some people might think that there’s a power imbalance”
Leave John Key alone! He’s the real victim here! Of course if it literally was the opposite, the young women being bullied would have had power over John Key, his wife, his entourage and his bodyguards. That doesn’t sound an entirely credible scenario to me.
A responsible leader, someone who isn’t proud to be casual about their job, would resign. But I hope Key doesn’t quit. I really, really don’t want him to go just yet. It’s going to be too much fun watching National’s only asset being the butt of jokes for the next two years. No, much better that we wait while the various investigations into his bizarre assaults play out. Or how ever long it is before Judith Collins calls an end to the madness. Popcorn, ahoy!

Thanks, John, we now have your epitaph.
David Brent couldn’t have said it better. Fact!
