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 Move to Orange: 8/10 

"At last, a little more normality." 

  

More Foreign Workers Being Allowed In: 6/10 

"Not exactly the solution but a sign of light and common sense. 

From forestry, to dairy, to the ski slopes we have at last recognised that you actually need people coming to the country to do the work." 

  

The Border Opening: 6/10 

"Same problem, it's not ideal. 

It's only Australia for now, should have been sooner, but any Aussie is a good Aussie as long as they have a full wallet and a good itinerary." 

  

Ram Raids: 1/10 

"Between the raids and the shootings, do you think Poto Williams might now accept things aren't quite right? 

Or is it all still operational?" 

  

Anthony Albanese's Interest and Unemployment Rate Mistake: 2/10 

"A stunning insight into just how fragile some of those who want to run things really are." 

  

Megan Woods and Mark Mitchell's Same Mistakes: 4/10 

"Given Albanese, wouldn't you have thought every politician would school themselves up on the basics?" 

  

Food Prices: 2/10 

"Highest increase in a decade. 

No wonder you can't afford a house, we can't afford a cabbage." 

  

CRL: 3/10 

"Another cost blowout. 

You reckon it'll be the last?" 

  

The Warriors: 8/10 

"What a week. 

Three wins in a row, tickets on sale now for the return home, and 7th on the table. 

This is our year." 

  

Easter: 8/10 

"Aaaaah, the serenity."
