Ms Harré said on Tuesday she wants to debate with John Key at candidate meetings in his electorate - away from his army of spin doctors - and he has some explaining to do.

She said as many jobs have been destroyed on his watch as have been created, and Mr Key is holding the rest of New Zealand back with his ignorance of the digital age.
