National MPs are talking to one another about their shockingly bad result in a recent poll, Bridges has revealed.
MPs aren't happy with Judith Collins' performance and a coup could come as soon as October.
Labour MP Willie Jackson insists he doesn't have a "crush" on Judith Collins.
National's result is just above its worst-ever election outcome.
"Since October the 17th last year, we have seen no change."
"If you want to cover those things, then that's up to you."
"We don't want to call it the COVID bus, do we? Because that sounds really bad."
The Prime Minister says she was referring to putting everyone into lockdown the same day a case was found.
"This nonsense of making out I was fat-shaming her."
Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield also defended Wiles over the incident.
The microbiologist tweeted her response.
The Director-General of Health received an explanation from Dr Siouxsie Wiles.
"It may in fact have to go into 2022 to make sure the work is done properly."
Judith Collins has dismissed rumours one of her caucus was plotting a leadership challenge at the weekend.
The National Party leader said they were "awful choices" to pick from.
Could New Zealand have its own "freedom day"?
The National leader says she understands "the frustration of people that say, is New Zealand seen as a soft touch?"
An investigation has been launched into how a COVID case was able to break out of quarantine and be on the run for more than 12 hours.
Bridges refused to put a number on her performance, saying it will probably "come back to haunt" him.
But the Government says that would be too much paperwork and slow the process down.
The two leaders go head-to-head again.
The Opposition leader is speaking in Parliament.
The National leader lit up Parliament, perhaps still fired up after a now viral media clash.
The gloves were off.

Judith Collins has claimed journalists haven't been asking questions about the vaccine rollout because they "don't want to".
But he does worry she - not to mention himself and other experts - might have missed something.
"There's no point worrying, lying awake all night thinking."
The National leader asked the Prime Minister about comments made by the Minister for COVID-19 Response.
"We came up with an online option. The National Party rejected it and that's why the House is now convening."
