At the end of each week, Mike Hosking takes you through the big-ticket items and lets you know what he makes of it all.

 

The Cyclist Protest: 1/10

"Self-important yobs who think they are above the law.

They did their cause no good at all."

 

The Police at the Cyclist Protest: 4/10

"Hopelessly under-resourced.

In making the one arrest it reinforced the thinking that you can get away with an increasing amount of lawlessness with no real comeback."

 

Global Economic Growth: 7/10

"OECD stats suggest say 6 percent growth this year.

The worst, I think, is behind us."

 

Australia's Economy: 7/10

"Now officially bigger than it was before Covid.

And one of only six countries to turn that trick."

 

Nick Smith: 3/10

"I rest my case."

 

Willie Jackson Meeting with the Gangs: 3/10

"What is it with this government and gangs?"

 

Naomi Osaka: 4/10

"Of course, there is sympathy.

But making yourself the centre of attention and expecting rules to apply to everyone but you, ended the way it was always going to end."

 

Burnout: 4/10

"It's like social media, everyone wants it.

It’s the condition of the age."

 

Crowds Back at Sport: 8/10

"From the NBA, to the NBL, to the Phoenix, and to the Champions League this week.

Crowds are your sporting icing on the cake."

 

The Reds Win in Super Rugby Trans-Tasman: 6/10

"God bless them getting at least one win on the board.

But does it really change a lot? I don’t think so."
