New Zealand kids have named Prime Minister John Key almost as cool as pop sensation Justin Bieber.
The revelation comes from a survey of 5000 primary and intermediate-aged children who took part in  the Cool Our Schools programme. The survey was run by dairy product manufacturer, Meadow Fresh.
One of the questions asked was: “Which famous person do you think is the coolest?”.  The top two names given were John Key and Justin Bieber.
More than half of those surveyed – 51 per cent – thought the “Biebs” was much cooler than Mr Key, who got 49 per cent of the votes.
The top name in the survey, with 39 per cent of votes, was Benji – perhaps after Kiwi rugby league star Benji Marshall.
The coolest job, as voted by around 40 per cent of voters, would be as a sportsperson. Being a teacher, builder or prime minister were not such cool jobs, each getting five per cent of the votes.
