Simon Bridges is two months into his roadshow to connect with New Zealanders across the country.
The National Party leader joins Wendyl Nissen on The Long Lunch to talk about how he is not focusing on bagging the opposition, his political shelf life, and how he intends to get current Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern out of the big chair.
Mr Bridges is out to meet people in local communities and believes that if you’re in the opposition “you should go out and listen to what people are saying”.

He sees himself as auditioning to be alternative Prime Minister and hopes people will see him and say “he’s not quite as bad as we thought”.
Mr Bridges aims to have positive plans for the future as well and claims “I love New Zealand”.
He also shares his surprising views on euthansia.
