The staffer who maintains the Prime Minister’s Facebook page may find him/herself in hot water after expressing a personal opinion in a caption for a picture in John Key’s Pacific tour album.



The comment reads “what the hell is that useless prick doing there? other than the free fights ;)”.

The comment appears over Peter Sharples. 

The staffer is free is express his/her own opinion, but not on the Prime Minister’s Facebook page which the person has been entrusted to update.

Given that JK is maxed out at 5,000 friends and the popularity of Facebook, there is no chance the caption could’ve gone unnoticed.

The caption is also unfortunate because it undermines the great job the Prime Minister did representing New Zealand on this first Pacific Island tour.
