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 Government: 7/10  

Underway at last and a very solid start. A lot of intent, a lot of promises and a lot of energy.  

 

Parliament: 6/10 

Underway at last, almost two months since voting day. Politics moves about as fast as justice.  

 

James Meager: 8/10 

Universally seen as the star of the week with that speech. The trick now is to live up to the words. 

 

The Auditor General's election audit: 3/10 

When you have to investigate counting you know we are not up to much.  

 

PISA results: 2/10 

What a disgrace. What an abject, intergenerational failure and what a shocking way to deal with our kids.  

 

Singapore: 8/10 

The good news is they have the answer and they are like us, except with their act together. So the model is right there.  

 

Tohu Harris: 8/10 

Yes, Beaudy is good but Harris is the man. And with Harris you know it means next year is our year. 

 

Golf: 4/10 

New balls that don’t go as far. Talk about killing the fun.
