Newshub is speculating on whether Simon Bridges leadership of the National Party is safe. The latest poll has Simon down on 5%,
equal with Judith. Are the claims of National MP’s openly approaching
Newshub true, or is this wishful thinking by a couple of disgruntled
staff complaining about Bridges handling of recent events. Has he
failed to ignite his MP’s and more importantly his party’s support
But others say Bridges is safe – for now – and that Collins doesn’t have the numbers to roll him.
Those are damning quotes from MPs, but it doesn’t necessarily mean Bridges will face a challenge at a caucus meeting.
Newshub has been told if it does happen, it could move quickly or in the next three to four months.
Newshub has also been told it could happen at caucus, or it could just be executed by a group of MPs behind closed doors.
