Time now to mark the week, the little piece of news and current events that’s almost as popular as tomatoes at under $6 a kilo. 

  

The protest: 2/10 

“There are no winners.” 

  

The police and their handling of the protest: 2/10 

“Too slow, too soft.” 

  

The politicians handling of it: 2/10 

“Pretending they were all mad as snakes and rabble - how did that go for you?” 

  

Trevor Mallard's role: 1/10 

“Idiot.” 

  

Dairy: 10/10 

“Redefining the term golden days. There seems to be no ceiling to what the farmer is earning for this place.” 

  

Prince Andrew: 1/10 

“Reprobate.” 

  

Virginia Roberts: 3/10 

For a person who couldn’t wait to get to court and fight for victims, isn't it amazing what money does for your credibility?” 

  

Phil Goff: 4/10 

He sort of personifies all that’s wrong with local body politics - a bit bland, didn’t do a lot, hung around too long and leaves with a bit of a whimper.” 

  

War: 6/10 

 “Because I think, when it comes to Ukraine, it isn't going to happen. Which means oil will drop, petrol will get cheaper, markets will rise, super schemes will blossom and all will be well with the world. 

Or have I joined one too many things together there?”
