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?"
