We don’t often take Key’s side here at The Standard, but I think that most of us here would agree that on this occasion John Key has been cheated out of a victory that was rightfully his:
John Key third on ‘most ridiculous world leader’ list
BuzzFeed placed Key in third place on the list behind Boris Johnson the Mayor of London and Mayor Stubbs the Mayor of Talkeetna, Alaska.
Key gets points for thinking that a three way handshake is somehow possible. The unusual handshake took place between All Black captain Richie McCaw and International Rugby Board chairman Bernard Lapasset at the 2011 Rugby World Cup celebrations. [Watch it here]
The glory-hogging handshake is just one small act in John Key’s circus of embarrassments. There is so much less to Key than there seems. By all rights he should have won a clear first place on the Buzzfeed list. You’ll show them next year John!
