Here’s how Metiria Turei critiqued Key’s helicopter jaunt; juxtapose with Cunliffe below:
Green Party co-leader Metiria Turei was outraged that the air force “ferried” Mr Key to what she called exclusive events.
Mr Key used the Iroquois on Saturday to attend the Hamilton V8s then a black tie dinner at the Royal Auckland Golf Club in Otahuhu, Auckland.
“The Green Party has no problem with the Prime Minister using the air force in order to help out in emergencies or for important government business,” Mrs Turei said.
“We do have a problem with the Prime Minister commandeering the New Zealand Air Force so that he can get snapped at the V8s before heading off for an exclusive knees-up at the Royal Auckland Golf Club.”
