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.

David Clark.

4/10.

"Only gets four because he got there in the end, even if his leader yet again wouldn't see it.

If only Jacinda Ardern could look at the dictionary and get her head around the term, accountability."

Paula Bennett.

8/10.

"Tough way to go, but she's excited, and she'll do well.

But some colour leaves the political game, and in a world of hand-wringing grey, that’s a shame."

Judith Collins.

7/10.

"The book is worth a read.

It’s a good insight into what separates out the survivors from the pretenders."

Auckland's Water.

8/10.

"Thank you, Waikato.

I know it wasn’t your problem, and yes Phil Goff and Co are clowns, and no the government shouldn’t have had to get involved.

But water is sort of important, so it's appreciated."

July 1.

7/10.

"More paid parental leave, and more tax at the pump.

And a bunch of other stuff, on balance, that's probably more good than not."

Foreign Students.

3/10.

"This is a worrying theme. The idea was Queenstown to have them arrive and revive a five billion dollar industry.

That apparently is going nowhere.  

Why? Why aren't we more "can do?" Why aren't we desperate for stuff that we can make happen as opposed to the mindset of stuff we can't or won't?"

Tesla.

8/10.

"10 years since floating, and shares up 4000 percent. Now the most valuable car manufacturer in the world.  

I still wouldn't buy one, but you cant argue with that sort of success."

School Holidays.

8/10.

"Is literally everyone going to Queenstown?"
