Is John Key like Barack Obama?

273 comments

National Party leader John Key has compared himself to United States Democratic Party presidential contender Barack Obama in an influential British newspaper.

"I'm a bit like (Barack) Obama," Mr Key, 47, told the Financial Times in an interview published today. "I am not institutionalised in Wellington".

"I had 18 years in the commercial world and I will be quite pragmatic," the old former Merrill Lynch investment banker said.
