Text reads 'NZ experiencing record temperatures'. The cartoon shows the silhouettes of Prime Minister John Key and Australian PM Julia Gillard. John Key tells Julia Gillard that she is a 'special friend' and comments on the heat; she replies 'I think you're mistaking me for that pommy sheila, Warney's got shacked-up back home'. Context - the Australian PM visited New Zealand in mid January 2011 - during this time the two PMs emphasised the close friendship between the two countries. The 'Warney' comment refers to Ozzie cricket player Shane Warne whose girlfriend is british actress Elizabeth Hurley. PM John Key described her as one of several women on his 'hot' list. Also there has been a run of very high temperatures in New Zealand recently.
