Key antics harming brand New Zealand
Labour’s tourism spokesman says tailgate is not just damaging to brand Key but damaging to brand New Zealand.
Peeni Henare says Prime Minister John Key pulling the hair of a Parnell waitress is bizarre behaviour unbecoming of a person in his position.
He says it is bound to affect world media coverage of New Zealand’s Anzac commemorations.
"The way they look at him and the way they approach him is really bad for the reputation of our country in such an important week and much of the stuff going ahead. As tourism spokesperson I know that his particular brand is a great thing for the tourism industry, which is ticking over quite nicely, but these sorts of silly, silly things don’t help our brand," Mr Henare says.
