MPs are standing by Craig

Thomson here. One of them Thomson here. One of them this morning said that he actually

has the legal right to silence.

He was defending his right to

not make a statement. Then on 'ABC News Breakfast' this

morning the Trade Minister, Craig Emerson, was very much

standing by Craig Thomson.

Let's hear from him. What I

actually believe in, it is a quaint notion sometimes particularly here in Parliament

House when you're talking with

Mr Abbott about integrity, in

the presumption of innocence.

Maybe that's an old fashioned notion and I think that Craig

Thomson is entitled to the

presumption of innocence. In

fact, no criminal allegations have been made against him that

I'm aware of. An assessment is

being made. Craig

being made. Craig Emerson

going to be in Canberra today

to lobby government after this

the AWU, and the AMWU, are the AWU, and the AMWU, are all

in Canberra to talk to members

from the Government, but also

the opposition and they want to

see more support, more protection for the manufacturing industry.

They're calling for some sort

of long-term plan here. The Government yesterday did announce

announce some new measures.

They have appointed the former

Queensland Premier Peter

Beattie as a Special Envoy to

their buy Australian program.

He's working to promote the use of Australian products. The government has also set up a

process to look into those

claims that Australian

companies are being locked out of getting some of these

contracts. The pressure is on

for the government to do

something more here. The head something more here. The head

of the AWU, Paul Howes, has said that he wants them to set

mandates for big projects as to

how much Australian product that

that they have to use. Paul Howes has also made some comments overnight about the

Reserve Bank. He's saying they should be cutting interest

rates and if they don't, there

should be a shake up of the

Reserve Bank. A lot for Government to consider here. There's Susan thanks so

much for joining us from

Canberra this morning. The Libyan capital has seen some of

the most intense clashes yet as

forces come under renew forces come under renew the

fire from diehard supporters of

Colonel Gaddafi. The leader

remains in hiding, but his

Foreign Minister has conceded

that his 42 year rule is at an end. Our correspondent Ben

Knight is on his way to Tripoli and he says fining Colonel

Gaddafi is a priority for many Libyans. We're about 20

kilometres outside of Tripoli.

The Sun's going down. We've been on the road since first

light this morning. We stopped inside this compound to change

over vehicles before we head

into Tripoli. It's been

interesting to travel through

the other half of the country

of Libya. We spend some time of Libya. We spend some time

in the eastern part of Libya

earlier in the year when this whole thing was getting under

way. Travelling through west

what struck me most of the all the poverty is everywhere.

This is an incredibly poor

country is a remarkable thing

to say for such a rich country.

This is one of the largest oil producers in the world but the money clearly did not make it

out there. The money went to

one man. The entire economy here

here is based on oil. If it is

not oil itself it's oil based services and that was a policy

of Colonel Gaddafi to try and

maintain that kind of control.

The way that people are

responding to the idea that

Colonel Gaddafi may still be

around is quite interesting. There are quite a few conspiracy theories. We

understand the way he thinks.

What he they think he's thinking he's about to use chemical weapons on him. The

reason he has 30 journalists

held hostage in a hotel 20 kilometres from here he wants

to use that to goad the foreign powers to put powers to put their soldiers

here on ground to rescue them

so that he can then justice his

claim that this is a colonial

war. All sorts of strange scuttlebutt and rumour going

around. One thing is clear,

these people are been subjected

for a long time. When they talk about Muammar Gaddafi they

talk about him in the present

tense. He has been such a massive figure in their lives

for so long. Even though it

appears his regime is over, he

still very much is. The Libyan Transitional Council has

offered an am mess snesty to

any of Gaddafi's hen of if they

give up the whereabouts of the

leader a Libyan businessman has

given a $1 million reward to whoever locates. Geoff re-Robertson says both offers are aimed at getting Gaddafi

out of the way as quickly as

possible. Killing him, lynching

him, that's what would happen if the Libyans have their

report. What you should report

is actually that the offer is

an amnesty for anyone who kills

him, murder, and the money, the

$1.5 million, is for capturing

him dead or alive. Preferably,

I suspect, dead. At the end of

any regime, at the end of any tyrant he appeared, tyrant he appeared, they will

be strung up from lamposts, that's what Gaddafi did many of

his opponents. This is a brutal period, National Council brutal period, the Transitional National Council is made up,

ironically, mainly of Gaddafi

ex ministers. They've already

killed general UNIS who was one

of their number. They don't

control the situation on the

ground. They can't try him.

There's no justice system in

Libya to do it because all the judges... It has to be completely reconstructed. It

is pretty depressing for those

of us who believe that the way

to a better world is to have

some sort of rule of law, to

find some people who should know bet; including David

Cameron I'm afraid, saying oh,

let's leave it to the Libyan

people. You leave it to the

Libyan people and they'll either string him up or there

will be a mock fraudulent trial which there was of course the

fate of Saddam Hughes sand and

there will be the death penalty without doubt zoos he's caught.

There's an alternative, a very

important alternative, and

that's to deliver him and his

son Saif al-Islam Gaddafi and

his brother-in-law to the Hague

to be tried there for crimes

against thumty humanity. They

won't be strensed to death.

They'll be sentenced to stay in

prison for the rest of prison for the rest of their

life. It gets Gaddafi out of

Libya. You can't have him in

Libya in prison as a kind of

magnet for opposition in magnet for opposition in the period to come. To breaking

news this morning, the

resignation of Steve Jobs as head of the technology giant

Apple. Our North America

correspondent Craig McMurtrie

joins us from Washington. Big

news in the business world. Steve Jobs has been of

Steve Jobs has been of course synonymous with that brand for

a long time. Yes, it is. He

certainly has. It is big news.

A letter has been put out,

resignation letter. In the

letter he simply says I have

always said if there ever came

a day when I could no longer

meet my duties and expectations

as Apple's CEO, I would be the

first to let you know.

Unfortunately, that day has

come. He concludes in his

letter and it is quite a brief letter saying that he's made

some of the best friends of my

life, he says, at Apple and I

thank you all for the many

years of being able to

years of being able to work alongside you. He is resigning

or has re signed as Chief

Executive. He is offering himself as chairman of Apple

and there has been a succession plan in place for quite a while now. The company's chief

operating officer, Tim Cook,

will take over as CEO, but the

timing of this is obviously

quite carefully coming after

the markets have closed here.

It will be interesting to see

how they react tomorrow because

when Steve Jobs announced he

was taking his medical leave of

absence back in January, Apple

shares took a hit at that time.

He's such an iconic figure that

word is thrown around too much,

but he really is. He has been

synonymous with the Apple brand itself, regards at most valuable

valuable brand in world

business, Apple, the biggest tech name surpassing Microsoft

last year and you may recall when we

when we were being bogged down

with the debt crisis, political

debate here in Washington, that

it emerged that Apple had more cash on hand that the US

Government at the time. It has $76 billion. A huge development. I'm reading this

morning, too, Craig, that Apple

shares have fallen 7% on this news. Yes. On the other hand,

it is such a huge company and

it has put out so many products

that have really grabbed market

attention, most notably, most recently, of course, the IPad,

it has reached across the

globe, that I suppose in a sense

sense this moment always had to come. It is just that it really has caught everybody by surprise not withstanding surprise not withstanding the

fact that Steve Jobs has taken this medical leave because

there just wasn't any word of

his condition deteriorating.

His privacy is kept very His privacy is kept very close,

but as you know, he has been

suffering and battling cancer

for a long time now. He has had a liver transplant and

although no-one is confirming

it, the assumption with the

letter of resignation coming

outs a short while ago, is that

his health has now reached a

point where he can't continue

as CEO. Craig McMurtrie

joining us this morning. Okay. North Korea's leader Kim

Jong-il is holding rare talks with Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev. Mr Kim says his
