Every Friday morning, Mike Hosking takes you through the big ticket items of the week and lets you know what he makes of it all. 

The Government. 

7/10.

"On a couple of key statistics, they’ve got a major win and they should be banking them. 

3.9 percent jobless is world class, and the wage rises are as good as they have been for years."

Adrian Orr. 

6/10.

"Well done him and his committee, they showed gonads and did what I think is not only needed, but will be needed again. And maybe even again after that.  

Enjoy that 3.9 percent unemployment, and buckle up. You don’t cut the way they did because you're bored." 

Andrew Little and abortion. 

4/10.

"Didn’t see Winston Peters coming." 

Tracey Martin and abortion. 

3/10. 

"Didn’t see Winston Peters coming, and she's one of his." 

Winston Peters and abortion. 

6/10.

"Still as Machiavellian, tricky, slippery, and self serving as ever. 

It's effective politics but you wouldn't trust him with your good silver." 

Pharmac. 

7/10.

"Moved on cancer at last. 

My great hope is because it makes sense, not because they bow to petitions and marches." 

Qantas, Alan Joyce and flying guilt. 

8/10.

"Good on him calling out the climate change nutters, obsession, and reminding us that the hysteria leads no where but back to the dark ages. Or as he put it the 1920s.

Flying is not actually a crime, so book a ticket before they make it one." 

Queensland. 

8/10.

"Christmas Eve from 6pm is a Statutory Holiday now.

And it's 28 degrees and the 4XXX is cheap. 

Go Mooloolaba."
