Fresh from feeling chuffed about having a photo with Hollie Smith, John Key suggests the big question for the election campaign might be “what is the name of his family cat?”.
In today’s interview John rejects the suggestion that it was Helen Clark’s idea to hold only head to head debates on television and leave out the smaller parties. He also says that he does not need to be on the same stage as Winston Peters for New Zealanders to know that a deal between the two parties is off the cards. Will he look Helen Clark in the eye during the debates?
John is also determined to have a referendum on MMP by 2011 and personally believes New Zealanders will choose to keep some kind of proportional representation system.
