Max Key hits Jacinda Ardern with surprise question at business event

  • 11/05/2022

Former Prime Minister Sir John Key's son and property developer Max Key has questioned Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern at a business event on Wednesday.

Key asked Ardern whether she was concerned the build-up in Government debt in recent years - debt has built up during the COVID-19 pandemic - will have to be repaid by young New Zealanders.

"Do you think that this is fair?" Key said. 

Ardern laughed upon hearing it was Key, saying she was missing Question Time "but I feel I’m not getting too dissimilar a question here in the room".
