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.

Todd Muller.

4/10.

"This time last week, he had the ascendency to get the big job.

But he ends this week bruised, battered, and hopefully ultra-aware this is harder than it looks."

Nikki Kaye.

2/10.

"No, Paul Goldsmith isn't Maori.

She dug a hole the likes of which I have not seen dug for many a year."

Paula Bennett.

6/10.

"No hiding the fact she is gutted.

But professionalism is a quality much needed post spills, coups, and dark days."

Judith Collins.

8/10.

"Saved the day to a degree, and said what was needed to be said, "is there something wrong with me being white?"

MAGA Hat Story.

0/10.

"Having a bit of merchandise from the democratically elected President of the United States is not a story, a reason to be outraged, or anything more than a collectable.

It says nothing about you or your world view, other than you were once in America.

You might well also own a Yankees or Dodgers hat without actually being a fan either."

Winston Peters.

8/10.

"He exposed the split in the government, and the scrap at Cabinet.

And the fact it's Labour, not him that's holding us hostage." 

Job Losses.

3/10.

"A dreadful week, and a dreadful month.

There is no hiding from the price we are starting to be pay economically, and that price is far from over.

By the time it is, it's still any forecasters guess as to how bad the wreckage will be."

Working from Home.

8/10.

"It's official, we liked it, and we worked better.

Let's hope we haven't wasted this crisis and something more permanent and productive comes out of it."

Trans-Tasman Bubble.

7/10.

"Seems real, and seems real, real soon.

Might just be Sydney or Melbourne, but from small beginnings..."

The Warriors.

8/10.

"They're back this weekend, the NRL back last night.

These are important social and psychological pieces in the puzzle."

Queen's Birthday Weekend.

8/10.

"Very much anticipated and needed right now.

And it's a chance to spread the love and cash far and wide."
