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 Political Scandals.

2/10.

"They varied in terms of seriousness.

But what they have done is suck the air out of more important matters, like an economy on its knees and what to do about it."

Winston Peters.

6/10.

"Mixed week.

Made some good points about inexperience, Labour, the dangers of the Greens, and the frustrations of MMP.

But he also looked old, bitter, and down and out with the episode over David Seymour and leaks in the house."

David Seymour.

8/10.

"This is his time.

Starting with euthanasia, and backed up by an Olympic style consistency when it comes to one liners, bum outs, and picking good issues.

He is heading towards a good election."

Charging Expats for Quarantine.

6/10.

"Of course they have a right to come home.

It's their country, but it's also their bill, not ours."

Money.

7/10.

"People love it, and Reserve Banks are saying we need more.

America is looking at more, Europe this week gave more.

We are sinking in debt and not enough people seem to care, or even get it."

Plan for Airport in Tarras.

8/10.

"An airport will transform the town and the region.

It's a wonderful bit of proof that there are plenty of people planning for a new tomorrow."

Kanye West.

4/10.

"America has found three people to run for President.

Every one of them is a worry, what's that tell you about America?"

The School Holidays.

7/10.

"It gave tourism a shot, it was bigger than last year, and a lot of us got a break.

Winners all round."

Super Rugby Aotearoa.

9/10.

"Drawing crowds here, rating brilliantly in Britain, and every game is a cliffhanger.

What's not to love?"
