    National's leader is keeping tight lipped on a late-night talkback saga - reportedly involving a senior National Party figure

    National's leader is keeping tight lipped on a late-night talkback saga - reportedly involving a senior National Party figure


    There are allegations board member Roger Bridge called Marcus Lush's show last Monday - under the name 'Merv.'

    He told Marcus he lived in Manurewa and asked questions about Auckland Central candidate Nuwi Samarakone - who yesterday lost the candidacy battle to Emma Mellow.

    Judith Collins says it's not something she approves of - but it's a party matter.

    Newstalk ZB understands the person called from Bridge's phone.
