"Let them play golf"

Today, in Question Time, we were introduced to a new place: "Planet Key", where John Banks complied with the law. Confronted with this, John Key offered his own description:

Rt Hon JOHN KEY: I do not know so much about “Planet Key”, but my expectations are it would be a lovely place to live, it would be beautifully governed, golf courses would be plentiful, people would have plenty of holidays to enjoy their time, and what a wonderful place it would be.
"Golf courses would be plentiful". And that, readers, is John Key's vision for New Zealand. Sounds a lot like a modern "let them eat cake".
