National leader Judith Collins is in "high energy" mode heading into the last week of the campaign, as she attempts to shake off a disappointing seven days.
Speaking to the Herald, she described a week where she has had MPs leaking against her and accusations of supporter planting on her walkabouts as a "distraction".
To make matters worse for Collins, her party is still well behind Labour in the polls.
Even with the support of Act, she's still well behind a potential Labour/Greens alliance.
But Collins has not counted herself and her party out yet.
On the contrary, she is confident she will be able to close the gap in the polls before election day.
Broadcaster Miles Davis joined The Panel on The Weekend Collective to discuss the the big issues making news this week.
