John Key the new Dear Leader?
Enjoy the joke before the 'Dear John' punchline...
why were the Prime Minister's Cabinet colleagues falling over one another at National's weekend conference to address Key as "Dear Leader" - the moniker applied to Kim Jong-Il, North Korea's slightly-loopy dictator?
Why the National Caucus have taken to calling John Key the 'dear leader' is unclear but there are some similarities...
Kim Jong-Il and John Key are the same height,
Kim Jong-Il has an obsession with nuclear weapons - John Key has an obsession for cycle lanes,
Kim Jong-Il oversees a basket economy, John Key is doing everything he can to make NZ a basket economy,
Kim Jong-Il sucks up to China, so does John Key
Kim Jong-Il is a pain in the arse to America, John Key kisses American arse
and both claim to be 'for' the workers while fucking them over
As far as nicknames go, calling John Key the 'Dear Leader' is about as appropriate as Elvis nicknaming his penis 'Little Elvis'.
