John Banks: a change in leadership could make things worse for National Party

Watch 19/05/2020

It hasn't been a good 24 hours for Simon Bridges and the National Party, with the Newshub-Reid-Research poll results showing National on only 30.6 percent, while Labour is sky-high on 56.5 percent. 

The spotlight is now fully on Simon Bridges, and people openly questioning whether he will remain the party leader or be replaced before the Election later this year.

John Banks, filling in for Ryan Bridge, agrees that this is a terrible time to be a National MP, but he doesn't think a change in leadership will help anything. He refers to a recent example of when the Labour Party changed leaders to try and mitigate the fallout, but only made it worse.
