William Willis and Hannah Rawnsley: 2/10 

"Because they are idiots. 

But, by weeks end, I found our reaction to them about as bad as their actions, making us about as bad as each other."

Siouxsie Wiles: 2/10 

"Because she is a hypocrite. 

But she got protected because she's a luvvie and a mate of the Prime Minister."

The Covid Rule Breaking Tangi: 2/10 

"Because the rules are the rules. 

Unless you are perceived to be needing special attention from the constabulary." 

Q2 GDP: 8/10 

"2.8 percent is a stonking number. 

Imagine what the year could have been if someone bought a few vaccines." 

The Covid Numbers: 6/10 

"Hmmmm, elimination? 

How do you think they’ll spin it Monday when they drop us to Level 3 and Level 1? 

  

The Vaccine Resistance Wall: 7/10 

"Because although the vaccine roll out is stalling, resistance came in at a very high level. 

 So, the rest of the journey shouldn’t be as arduous as it might have been." 

 

Australia and the AUKUS Deal: 9/10 

"A key part of one of the biggest geopolitical moves in decades. 

The significance of yesterday cannot be overstated."  

New Zealand and the AUKUS Deal: 3/10 

"The fact we had no part and no knowledge should be a monumental wake up call. 

As the headline said "Australia grasps central role in the great political struggle of the era." 

Where are we? Sidelined." 

 

The All Blacks: 8/10 

"A beacon of exemplary execution and high-powered professionalism."   

 

Emma Raducanu's US Open Triumph: 10/10 

"Name me a greater sporting moment ever anywhere, all things considered."
