Mark the Week: A palpable sense that this Government is different

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 Government: 7/10

Off and running and plenty to do. Two cabinet meeting and 49-long list of things to do in 100 days. Looks good.

 

The reaction to the new Government: 7/10

There is a palpable sense that this is different, this might be a bit professional and there is a decent amount of good will.

 

Smoking: 4/10

A little bit of political capital might have gone up in smoke.

 

EV's: 3/10

The letter to Joe Biden from the car retailers is a sign of what is happening globally. The hype is not translating.

 

Tauranga City Council: 7/10

Listening to the ratepayer over parking, my word! You reckon that attitude could spread?

 

Shane van Gisbergen: 9/10

Despite the fact he got all pissy this year over his car, he is still one of the greatest and what a joy he has been in Supercars.

 

Wanaka: 4/10

Come on Wanaka. What's wrong with Macca's? You've got a dominos, you like hot apple pies. Don’t be snobs.

 

Tory Whanau: 4/10

We don’t mark personal troubles. But the Green's lame defence of the indefensible is all you need to know about the Greens.
