Ending oil, gas drilling 'right thing to do' - Kelvin Davis

From Morning Report, 7:28 am on 17 April 2018

The latest political polling is a mixed bag, with something to celebrate and something to worry about for every party involved. 

Labour is down five points in TVNZ's latest Colmar Brunton poll, but the coalition is up as a whole. When it comes to who the country wants as Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern has dropped four percentage points while opposition leader Simon Bridges has risen nine points, but he's still only registering at 10 percent. 

Acting Prime Minister Kelvin Davis says it's not a good look for Mr Bridges. He also discusses the government ending oil and gas exploration permits, saying he has had a lot of support for it in Northland, and it's the right thing to do.
