Soon it'll be Sir John Key.

That's been made pretty clear today by the man who succeeded him, Bill English.

Mr Key was farewelled by his caucus today with a standing ovation and tomorrow he gives his valedictory speech to Parliament.

Mr English was asked whether he'll be in the Queens Birthday honours list in June.

"That's a matter for the cabinet and the Governor General in the end, so they'll sort it out...he's been a very successful Prime Minister others have been recognised, and I'm sure he will be."
