Audrey Young of the New Zealand Herald looks at the performance of various ministers after the government's 100 days of office.
In her report card, she's given some high marks too, including nine for the Prime Minister.
Bill English scores seven, and while I've never been a fan of Bill, I am impressed by his realisation of the seriousness of the economic situation.
Stories like him saying government sees unemployment as the country's top priority highlight a government in touch with the issues and not shying away.
There's Judith Collins too, beavering away at Corrections (I am sure Crusher will finish off Mathews).
Steven Joyce also has issues with broadband and transport to grapple, and he seems to be.
Not mentioned, is Rodney Hide tackling local government over high rates and excessive spending and waste. Well done Rodney! A nine or ten from me.
We have a government that can look back with price at its achievements over its 100 days. Things like scrapping the Electoral Finance Act, initiatives on crime, health, education, its proposed Jobs Summitt, issues Garth George also raised below.
Even so, in times as tough as this, and even with an invisible opposition leader, there will be no time for National to rest on its laurels.
Is there anything else we can say about John Key and his government's first 100 days.
UPDATE: Government says it achieved all it set out to in its 100 days.
