The Country's Dom George interviews Prime Minister John Key today for an update on the big issues on his mind at the moment.
American Vice President Joe Biden's in town today to meet Key and talk about the possibility of sending a US navy ship here. This will end a thirty year rift with America.
Dom poses the question 'is Biden a consolation prize?' It is well documented that Key has been keen for Obama to visit our shores.
Indonesia and China are playing a big role in New Zealand's export market. Dom asks the PM some niggly questions about both.
Is it a case of where there's smoke there's fire? Or is it all smoke and mirrors?
