(WOMAN HECKLES). You have no idea!

Tonight! Voters confront the PM

over the carbon tax.

Why did you lie to us?

Super fraud - cyber gangs steal

millions from retirement accounts.

Going gaga in Sydney. The world's

most exclusive pop concert.

Only 1,000 people have access, all the others are barred!

Hello. I'm Kathryn Robinson. This

is Ten's Late News.

Hi I'm Brad McEwan, this is Sports

Tonight. The AFL world mourns the

passing of coaching great Allan

'Yabby' Jeans.

He gave us an opportunity to grow with him.

Mal Meninga stays quiet as rugby

league's State of Origin stoush continues.

Julia Gillard experienced first-

hand today just how hard it will be

to sell the carbon tax to a dubious

public. The PM was forced to defend

herself as she was accused of lying

to the electorate over the issue.

The blades have come out.

That is a sharp knife!

The carbon crusade has turned cold. (LAUGHS MANIACALLY).

At a Melbourne community forum run

by Tony Abbott, a lone Green

swamped in a sea of blue.

I voted greens. They were very

clear on what they wanted to do! (CROWD BOOS).

I am really very, very happy with it.

Then outside:

Take your opinions somewhere else,

we do not need you at all. Pushed

Is there a reason why you're

holding me and pushing me? Followed...

I can't leave because I'm scared of you.

Finally, brought to tears.

Can you come and pick me up, I'm

really scared, I want to go home.

Julia Gillard's truth campaign took

her to a Brisbane shopping centre.

When a Galaxy poll shows 60% oppose

a carbon tax, many shoppers didn't

believe her broken word.

You have no mandate!

We don't need an election!

Good on her for the carbon tax!

Good on her for the CPRS! Good on

them for their package! I'll tell

you what Australia needs.

Why did you lie to us?"

Well, I can talk to you about that.

Why do you continue to lie to us?

I can explain all of that to you.

I've listened to you for months, I've watched Parliament, you're still lying.

Australian's have different views

about putting a price on carbon.

But this is the right thing to do.

At a community forum tempers may

have cooled but the questions, were just as hot.

You promised the Australian public

after the last election there'd be no carbon tax.

When is it OK for a person in high

office to lie?

How can anyone trust you with this

record? Because I don't think I can anymore.

I can only answer you on that,

explaining who I am, and what why

values are and what guides me.

Yeah, look, you can change your

mind, but when you change your mind

on something as big as that you

should take it to the next election.

All the colour of the political

roadshow overshadowed the Government's announcement. It's

giving more money to the consumer

watchdog to crackdown on businesses

that use the carbon tax as an

excuse to price gouge.

Those businesses that don't do the

right thing will feel the full

force of the law.

There's a major new threat to your

retirement fund. International fraud gangs are targeting

Australian's nest eggs, siphoning

millions of dollars from superannuation accounts.

Police warn everyone to closely

monitor super statements as more

and more people are hit by thieves.

It is perhaps your most valuable

asset but also among the almost

lovable. Investigators say an army

of fraudsters is raiding the 1.3

trillion dollars held in suit and

elation funds. Most victims are

unaware for years they have been

fleeced. The gangs that targeting

them are coming from other

countries with sophisticated crime,

Russia, the Philippines. Their

taken and they will not realise

that an till they are retired.

Cawte this medians have been

pilfered. A Sydney woman was

recently grand opera entire savings.

She had over $170,000. They have my

identity and driver's licence and

letters from the ATO and have

transferred my superannuation fund

into a self- managed fund. This

game relies on identity theft. Your

information is hacked online or

stolen from your mailbox or rubbish

bin. Some victims are lured in by

newspaper ads most often funnelled

to accounts in the eastern Europe

and onwards to the tax havens. They

may steal superannuation statements

from the rubbish bin and that

combined with other documents gives

them sufficient identity. She is

here on a working visa. Days after

she went home to the USA, a thief

pounced but failed. After numerous

calls I discovered that somebody

had sent an email saying that they

wanted to cancel my Visa and cash

the superannuation. Most terrifying

is that very real possibility you

could go without compensation.

could go without compensation.

Banks voluntarily reimburse any

victims but superannuation funds

are under no obligation to do that

and vigilance is the only way to

protect your savings. It took nine

months with consistent follow up to

get my money back. Besides your

home, this is the most asset and

you do not want to blow that.

It could be 12 months before we

know the full story behind Tiger

Airways safety breaches. An interim

report confirms a Tiger plane flew

too low at Melbourne's Avalon

airport but it gave little else away.

There's not much roar at the Tiger

terminal, the airline still

grounded pending a safety investigation.

An interim report released late

this afternoon confirms a pilot

flew into the danger zone last month.

They followed a missed approach to

the Melbourne Airport and he

repositioned.

The airline would not comment.

It may be one more year before the

details are known. It is not the

only airline in trouble. Qantas

engineers are set to continue

industrial action. Too right handed

engineers were used their left-hand.

The unusual step is designed to

limit disruption to passengers.

Once tied at his work doubt we will use industrial rights.

That led to it for planes being grounded.

We wouldn't be here if we had any

doubts about the safety of our

operation. It's our first priority.

Despite pilot pay demands, the

grounding of Tiger's fleet and

expected fuel price hikes, Jetstar expected fuel price hikes, Jetstar

promises low cost flights will

continue. Today it launched a daily

service from Melbourne to Beijing.

We're very excited to announce this

connection to Beijing. We're very

committed to low fares.

Tickets went on sale this afternoon

for the first flights in November.

Lawyers for the woman charged with

murdering Australian girl Zahra

Baker in the US say her trial

should be moved because potential

jurors want her dead. Elisa Baker

is accused of killing her 10-year-

old step-daughter in North Carolina last year.

The US media calls her:

A real life evil step-mother, Elisa Baker.

Her case has made constant

headlines as she prepares to face

trial, accused of killing 10-year-

old Zahra Baker, whose dismembered

body was found scattered around the

town of Hickory.

What hell that stepmother put the

little girl through before her

death. Only god in heaven knows. Oh

and one other - satan!

Now her lawyer claims there's no

way the small community in North

Carolina can give her a fair hearing.

I believe the area is infected with pre-trial prejudice.

He told a court the community

believes Elisa Baker deserves the

same treatment and fate as Zahra.

They've already found her guilty

without hearing the first bit of evidence.

It's true most have an opinion.

I think she done it.

I would sit on the jury.

Could she be impartial? Could she be impartial?

I think it'd be interesting to sit

there and watch and try to get into

her mind and figure out what she

was thinking to do what she did.

She faces up to 30 years in jail.

Pop sensation Lady Gaga put Sydney

into a spin after just completing

her exclusive performance at city

hall. 1,000 people won golden

tickets to the show. The party is still going.

The moment they'd been waiting for.

Woooooo! Oh my god!

1,000 Gaga faithful poured into

Sydney's Town Hall for an intimate concert, clutching tickets money couldn't buy.

I can't believe we're here. We've

been nervous all day, so stressed,

shaking trying to make this and scratching ourselves.

We feel pretty lucky to be one of

1,000 people here.

The uniform of the little monsters The uniform of the little monsters

is 'anything goes'. They braved the cold.

For the pure love of Gaga.

Those who couldn't get in were

hoping for just one glimpse.

If we see her it will be very If we see her it will be very

exciting. We just want to see her.

She's going to walk on the red She's going to walk on the red carpet, right?

Entry into this concert tonight

really was the hottest ticket in

town. Only 1,000 people got inside,

everyone else was barred. Inside,

the pop queen lifted the roof. (MUSIC PLAYS).

This was a one-off show specially

designed for Australia. For more

than an hour the pop queen belted

out hits which have become anthems.

She is amazing, incredible, She is amazing, incredible,

phenomenal, I can't wait till she

comes back. She is the best performer ever.

from it Brad, Big Mal was spotted

in Brisbane and kept his lips

sealed when approached about that

scathing column aimed squarely at

Ricky Stuart and the Blues.

REPORTER: Can we grab a quick

comment? No, mate. Are you standing

by your comments? Menga's

supporters are queuing up, His

former team mates maintaining the

rage. All I know is I've never

heard anyone come up with as much

dribble as Ricky Stuart has in 31

years. But it's Mal rats and filth

comments that could come back to comments that could come back to

bite him. He attacked the judiciary

and accused the Blues of a conspiracy to undermine his conspiracy to undermine his

coaching credentials. Now the

newspaper they appeared in has been

asked to print an apology and a

retraction. He's let some of his

personal feelings known publicly.

The one thing I will say and is a

fact is that he's the coach of the

team and he's been a massive reason

to the success of the team. No

secret Nathan Hindmarsh has been

paramount to the Eels success.

He'll lace up for game number 300

against Penrith, and dropped a

subtle hint about his future. I'd

like to play until I'm 50. All

depends if the coach wants me or

not. Phil Gould certainly wants to

football world is mourning the

passing of AFL Hall of Famer Allan

'Yabby' Jeans. St Kilda's only

premiership coach and the

mastermind behind Hawthorn's golden

era has been remembered as a footy

father to a generation of greats.

Six weeks ago, the legendary Allan

Jeans gave his last interview with

great friend and adversary Jonn

Kennedy. Since I've been ill, I'm

quite amazed. I must have done

something right. A lot of

premiership players have been

visiting me. You can't buy respect,

you've got to earn it. He more than

earned it. Yabby steered St Kilda

to its one and only premiership in

1966. After the jamie got us

together and said it does not

matter what you do, I will always

remember you for this wonderful

moment you have given be. There

would be three more premiership

cups at Hawthorn and a generation

of superstars have revered him ever

since. You're lucky you're not News

of the World because if you'd

bugged our phone call this morning,

you would have heard 250 kilograms

of blubbering, crying mess.

Hawthorn became a power house when

Jeans took over in '81 - the era

produced five flags. Only illness

prevented him from coaching them

all. I don't know if I was great

technically, but I had pretty good

communication skills. Many of his

players went on to successfully

coach themselves. Having been coached

coached by her man coached against

him, he is one of the great people

of Australian Rules football. Jeans

was also a big favourite of the

Cheltenham Bowls Club where he was

a long-time member, successful

player and motivational force. It

made you think what you were doing

and you need to lift your game to

do the best in your club. And why

the nickname? His brother's nick

name was 'Lobster', being the

smaller brother, he got 'Yabby'.

Jeans will be remembered as one of

the great AFL orators when you get

to the cross roads, you either step

up or step down. In every

They will be a crossroads. You make

the decision not me.

This cup's for you, complainers. Thanks to you, we've changed
