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 Global Reaction to Ukraine: 8/10 

"In a fractured, disparate world this has been a week of real revelation, comradery, surprise, relief, and hope." 

  

President Zelensky: 9/10 

"If he makes it, the Nobel Peace Prize winner, surely." 

  

The Wellington Protest: 2/10 

"It achieved nothing. The mandates are still here.   

It ended abysmally and, ultimately, won next to no friends." 

  

The Government's Reaction to the Protest: 3/10 

"No, I doubt by talking, much would have been resolved. 

But leadership is about testing the possibilities. And there, as usual, was no leadership." 

  

The Police's Handling of the Protest: 4/10 

"I feel increasingly sorry for the good men and women who protect us. 

They are being badly let down by a Commissioner who thinks policing and acquiescing are the same thing." 

  

Our Dairy Sector: 9/10 

"It's almost absurd. This week's dairy auction has more billions piling into the economy. 

They are a lifeline." 

  

Sleepyhead's Waikato Development: 9/10 

"At last, the green light. 

Those who oppose and waste time, energy, and resource should hang their heads in shame. 

This country needs more ideas and progress like it." 

  

Kate's Facebook Scam: 1/10 

"Facebook really are bastards. 

They refuse to accept, despite the fact we've told them that we aren't giving away money and there are no winners, that this is a scam. 

Where are the rules and regulations that hold the cowboys to account? And why would you use or advertise on such a shabby platform?"
