Despite playing coy Simon Bridges and National would be happy to have a Blue-Green party as a possible coalition partner.

it was put to Bridges that he was unlikely to say “no” to doing business with Tava’s party, and Bridges replied: “I think that’s right.”
But Bridges said he had not talked to Tava about the Sustainability party, and didn’t think he had met Tava during 2019.

Bridges is obfuscating. Our sources tell us that he’s been involved in discussions regarding this nascent party and that the fledgeling party has none other than Murray McCully advising them.
