Quote of the day:
Well, look, you know, the thing is I’m actually enjoying it. As Prime Minister, what are they going to remember when they look back? And the answer is going to be is the economy strong, does the education system work better, does health system work better, is New Zealand a stronger, more confident country? I’ve been Prime Minister for four and a half years. My own personal view is that we are building that sort of New Zealand. Now, you know, is there perfection? There will never be perfection in politics, but you can do your very best and you can see the course, and that’s what we’ve done. I really believe passionately that— And again, I’ve read lots of stuff in the media that I’m not going to be there in 2014, I’m not going to run National in the election, that’s not true. None of that is true. I’ll be there. As long as National wants me there, I’ll be there in 2014. Why? Because I don’t think we’ve actually finished the job yet. And, you know, there will always be some weeks that are better than others, but for the most part I’m in an incredibly privileged position. You know, I’m the 38th prime minister of New Zealand, and I’ll always be grateful to the New Zealand public that they gave me that chance. Prime Minister John Key (on Q+A yesterday).
