Sir John Key Order of Australia

Stuff reports:

Former Prime Minister will be receiving ’s highest honour at a ceremony in Canberra on Tuesday.

Sir John – who was knighted in the 2017 Queen’s Birthday honours – has been appointed an Honorary Companion in the Order of Australia, and will be invested with the insignia by Australia’s Governor General.

“I was shocked and stunned when I got the phone call from PM Turnbull,” Sir John said on Monday evening.

“In my mind it’s a recognition of the closeness of our bi-lateral relationship. This honour should be viewed far more as a recognition of the bond between our two countries more than a personal award.

“I had always viewed Australia as our most important relationship and worked to ensure my actions reflected that.”

A fair dinkum honour!
