John Key's highlights from years in power

Wednesday marked former Prime Minister John Key's last day in Parliament.

For some it's celebrations, for others it's commiserations.

One things for sure, there were a lot of memorable moments across Mr Key's almost three terms in office.

Three's The Project casts an eye back over the highlights - and lowlights.

"He often thought he was funnier than he sometimes was," MP Paula Bennett told Newshub.

So goodbye, Mr Key - and thank you for the tea-pots, handshakes, dancing, and singing.
