Vocabulary List
New Zealand Prime Minister John Key could be in trouble
after he pulled the ponytail of a waitress in a café. Mr Key
apologised after waitress Amanda Bailey posted online that
the PM had pulled her hair many times when he visited the
café. Ms Bailey said Mr Key started the hair-pulling last
year during his election campaign. She said she repeatedly
told him to stop and to not do it again, but he didn't listen
to her. She could now take New Zealand's leader to court.
He could be investigated for the crime of "hostile touching"
if Ms Bailey goes to the police. A New Zealand legal expert
said: "You have to remember this is an older white male
with a lot of power." He said Ms Bailey was in a powerless
position.
Mr Key has apologised for his actions and said he was just
"horsing around" (joking) with the waitress. However,
many people in New Zealand think the apology is not
enough. Women's rights campaigner Marilyn Waring told
Radio New Zealand that she believed Mr Key had broken
the law. She said: "I'm getting tired of it being called
anything but illegal." New Zealand's deputy leader Tracey
Martin said it was unacceptable behaviour for a leader of
any country. She added: "If he doesn't understand where
people's personal boundaries lie, we've got some rather
serious problems." The Equal Employment Opportunities
Commission, said: "It's never OK to touch someone without
their permission."
