The Herald reports:
Prime Minister John Key has revealed he is not immune from his boot camp mania – first he set up boot camps for young crims, then for young unemployed people and now his personal guards have set up a personalised boot camp for him.
That could be a great TV show – the PM’s boot camp! Actually the show which would be fun to make would be “The Political Apprentice”, where you have aspiring politicians compete to cope with various political challenges.
“I should know. I’ve done it.”
He said his Diplomatic Protection Squad personnel sometimes changed his early morning runs to something more challenging – including carrying full jerry cans “if they’re trying to make things difficult.”
A jerry can weighs around 20 kgs when full, so that would not be the easiest thing to do.
