Labour's caucus is meeting in Upper Hutt today to decide whether 'boy from the Hutt' Chris Hipkins will keep his hand on the tiller.
It's the team's first caucus meeting since the election saw Labour thrust out of office.
Political Commentator Josie Pagani told Mike Hosking that Hipkins has to set his image as a fighter in opposition.
She says he should move the party back to basics, with a focus on cost of living and how to make the economy tick for working people.
