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 Polls.

7/10.

"The TVNZ Colmar Brunton poll confirms the earlier one was rogue.

But don't we love a poll? Bet you David Seymour is loving the polls."

Quarantine Charging.

0/10.

"What a joke, what a bust, and what a farce. Say one thing, do another and bulldozed by the Greens.  

The ultimate committee policy where literally no one is happy.

You can't run countries that way."

Behrouz Boochani.

2/10.

"Nothing against the bloke, but when the Greens meet you at the airport, and you're here for a festival with clearly no intention of going home and you’ve already been accepted to America and suddenly, bam, you're in.

It doesn’t add up."

Sarah Dowie.

8/10.

"Went out with a zing and sent some salient messages with it.

Well done her."

Paula Bennett.

8/10.

"Gone with class and style in the valedictory week.

Good stories, good memories, some cold realisations, and a bright future she won't regret."

The Economy.

6/10.

"Spending, tick. Jobs, almost a tick.

New statistics show there is a recovery of sorts, let's hope it holds."

Shaun "The Dark Destroyer" Wallace.

7/10.

He is a good guy. He loves his name.

And in such matters if the so-called victim isn't actually a victim, but in fact perfectly happy, then the luvvies can back the hell up."

Super Rugby Aotearoa and The Crusaders v Hurricanes.

8/10.

"Adding value to the competition by providing proof that on your day anything is possible, and it's not automatically a forgone conclusion."
