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 Reserve Bank: 2/10

"The important issue of the week. The facts, now laid bare, show they’ve blown this for us and the economy.

The bailout has begun to the tune of $9 billion and counting.

What's not to review?"

 

David Seymour: 6/10

"Most sensible political point of the week. He wouldn’t have indemnified the Reserve Bank when they printed money.

Grant Robertson knew better and look where that got us.

At least $150 million a month, every month for five years."

 

The Green Party Leadership Vote: 2/10

"What a staggeringly ill-conceived and hair brained cock up.

Who is the candidate? Hello? Anyone home? Hello, did anyone think about a plan?"

 

Christopher Luxon's Te Puke/Hawaii Drama: 4/10

"He was let down by a media team that should have known better on a day when he wanted to talk about more important issues."

 

Commonwealth Games: 6/10

"To be honest, I'm not gripped. The games have an invented competition feel about it

But good sport is good sport and winning is always cool."

 

Ian Foster and the All Blacks' Changes: 7/10

"Sacrificial lambs were offered. Can we get off his case now?"

 

Liam Lawson: 8/10

"Great weekend in France where he won another race.

He's another step closer to the F1 dream."

 

The Weather: 2/10

"Aren't we sick of it?"
