Bill English has announced he will step down as leader of the National party and will be retiring from politics, after 27 years in parliament. The question now is who will succeed him - will the party aim to reinvigorate itself or choose a steady favourite? Former National Party president, and regular panelist, Michelle Boag joins the programme to discuss the party's next steps and what Mr English's legacy will be.
