It's a bromance if Paul Henry ever saw one –Australia's new Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and John Key have an obvious fondness for each other.

After ousting Tony Abbott on Monday night, Mr Turnbull cited Mr Key as an example of someone who he will model his leadership on.

Labour leader Andew Little reacted, saying: "I pity Australia if that's the case."

3 News Political Editor Patrick Gower told the Paul Henry programme Mr Little may again be perceived as "Angry Andy".

"That's certainly how the National Party will attack it, it will look a bit churlish in some senses," he says.

"This is one of the difficulties of being the Opposition leader, you've got to try and not be negative all the time."
