Kelvin Davis: 1/10 

"Idiot of the week. 

Not everyone who thinks you shouldn’t be able to take the law into your own hands or is deputised by a government held ransom by Māori is a racist." 

Government Ignoring Covid Health Advice: 2/10 

"The revelation of the week. We have a government that basically spins a line. 

Follow the health advice until they're busted. 

Some reporters said this week it became political. Heads up, it was always political"

Omicron: 6/10 

"No really bad news yet, more optimism than fear, and more upside than trouble. 

Fingers crossed."

Changing Rules Around Vaccine Mandates: 3/10 

"This is getting messy. 

From fast food outlets to schools. Who knows what's what, and when you don’t, it becomes shambolic." 

Dairy Sector: 10/10 

"The farmers and the cows are paying the bills, breaking the records, providing hope, and a reminder that growing stuff is our way out of this mess." 

Boris Johnson: 2/10 

"Between the Afghanistan inquiry, the Christmas party that was illegal, and plan B, that’s a miserable week."  

Car Sales: 8/10 

"Yet another record month in November. 

Hands up if you haven't bought a car this year." 

Liam Lawson, Marcus Armstrong and Shane Van Gisbergen: 8/10 

"All flying the flag from behind the wheel from Jeddah to Bathurst. 

Winning is winning, no matter where you are." 

Christmas Races in Invercargill: 8/10 

"A lot got cancelled this week, but the racing didn’t. 

Have an awesome time."
