On Newshub Nation this weekend:

Simon Bridges has been leader of the National Party for six months and with cracks showing in the coalition, now should be his time to shine. Lisa Owen asks him why he is polling at just 10 per cent and what he's doing to ensure he keeps the top job and gets his party into parliament come 2020.

Then we are joined by author Max Rashbrooke, whose newly released book Government for the Public Good challenges current thinking on market reform. We ask him: is capitalism is dead?

Following the dumping of dead native birds on Parliament grounds by 1080 protesters, and as DOC prepares for a massive drop next year, John Michael-Swannix looks at the controversial use of the poison.

Then we're joined by our panel to discuss the news of the week: Stuff Political Editor Tracy Watkins, Newshub Political Editor Tova O'Brien and Executive Producer of RNZ Podcasts Tim Watkin.

Newshub Nation on TV3, 9.30am Saturday, 10am Sunday. Proudly brought to you by New Zealand on Air’s Platinum Fund.
