Is John Key a top 5 Prime Minister?

Former Prime Minister John Key left Parliament for the last time on Wednesday.

Love him or hate him, he ruled New Zealand for eight years; overseeing the Christchurch earthquake response, the global financial crisis - and an attempted flag change.

But where does he rank among our former PMs?

Three's The Project drew up a list, and guest Bill Ralston ranks Mr Key at number five.

Controversially, he put Mr Key above former Prime Minister David Lange, whose "government fell apart".

"Number five, it's not a medal but it's still good," commented The Project host Kanoa Lloyd. "See you John Key."

The Project's rankings were:

  1. Richard Seddon
  2. Michael Savage
  3. Helen Clark
  4. Keith Holyoake
  5. John Key
