All eyes today will be on the National caucus meeting to occur at 9 am this morning.
Details are still vague but it seems that Simon Bridges was organising for a leadership spill.
Last night at 9 PM Collins demoted him after learning of a complaint that Jaqui Dean made against him five years about comments that he made to her. The complaint had previously been dealt with by then leader Bill English.
Bridges has this morning said that Collins’ actions were truly desperate stuff.
Simon O’Connor has just accused Judith Collins of engaging in Dirty Politics and said he will also surrender all his portfolios.
Get your popcorn ready. Today is going to be an interesting day as National eviscerates itself in front of the public during a pandemic that requires everyone’s attention as two egos fight over their personal ambition.
