A former Minister says New Zealand's position in Five Eyes is not likely to be under threat.?
The Government has come under fire from Australian and UK commentators over our stance on China and our place in Five Eyes, after New Zealand declined to sign several statements criticising China.
However, Peter Dunne told The Weekend Collective that our position in the security alliance is unlikely to be under threat.?
He says that our geographic location makes us valuable to the Five Eyes, as we can pick up better signal traffic
"We're of more value to our partners than our partners are to us in this.
"When people start to say 'chuck New Zealand out', I just think that's a bit far-fetched because we contribute more than we get."?

The Ron Burgundy Podcast

Will Ferrell reprises his role as Ron Burgundy in his brand new Ron Burgundy Podcast! Each episode has a different theme in which Ron engages in conversation with another notable person on the topic at hand. In true Ron Burgundy fashion, these conversations have a tendency to go off the rails, and we find out things about people we never knew we wanted to know. In season 2, Ron considers a run for President, continues to perform music, and blacks out at work. In Season 1, Ron addressed important issues like bullying and the mind-expanding nature of meditation, and attempted to ultimately answer the question “seriously, what is a podcast?”
