When Nick met John

So I was at the M2 awards on Thursday night. Easily the best night of my year so far. In amongst the food and booze and celebrities I was introduced to John Key the prime minister of NZ. He was voted by the M2 readers as the M2 man of the year.

Behind me is a huge picture of JK from the mag. As usual I couldn't help myself. I pointed out that on the front cover of the mag his tie is undone.

"It's a bit sloppy John. I don't know if I want someone running our country when they can't even dress themselves properly. "  

This was his reaction. 

Afterwards he said "my tie's done up now though". "Sorry John" I explained. "The damage has already been done." I guess I could've used this opportunity to discuss his stance on selling state assets but - to hell with it - I went for the gag. Because that's how we roll in the Wood of Kings. 


  1. Look at you. Doing the shmooze with the high and mighty. Good choice going for the gag - ALWAYS go for the gag - if it was good enough for Chaplain, it's good enough for me.

  2. Nick, I couldn't be more proud of you.
