The greatest act of industrial vandalism in 100 years, a stinging attack on the Government's IR changes in Canberra today as critics take their case to a Senate inquiry. Ten political editor Paul Bongiorno joins me now. Paul, how important is this hearing?

Well, these senate enquiries play

the important role of looking at

suggestions that the Government can put into the Bill before it becomes

law. John Howard said he's happy

for the Senate inquiry to do that.

But he's not interested in any more

scrutiny than that. And he's

certainly not interested in holding

up the Bill so that it won't become

law before Christmas. The Labor

opposition says that this is a

farce, a huge Bill, near 1,000

pages of legislation, and it is

massive in the implications but

Employers are saying that anyone

debate. Thank you Paul Bongiorno in Canberra. A British man could be the world's first person to be cured of HIV. While more tests are to be done, experts believe the man's own immune system might have beaten the virus.

25-year-old Andrew Stimpson was diagnosed HIV positive in August 2002. He was told by doctors that his immune system was remaining strong. What he did not expect was a further test 14 months later that showed up negative. Suspecting the first diagnosis had been wrong, he considered suing the hospital. But he was told there was no case. There had been no mistake. He believes he's now clear of the virus. It's unbelievable. It's a miracle. I think I'm probably one of the luckiest people alive and I just want to try and help people now. This is not a claim of some miracle drugs cure, he was not taking HIV medication. So what happened? Here's one assessment. This is the first case that's been properly documented of someone who has been apparently proven to be infected with HIV and has then managed to use their own immune system perhaps to kick it out.

Andrew Stimpson's story is one case, one set of results. But from HIV AIDS campaigners, judging the potential significance, there is a word of caution. It's raising a lot of questions. Obviously we need answers to those questions

and we look forward to thorough scientific investigation as to exactly what's happened. And in the meantime, we would remind people that HIV is the fastest growing serious health condition in the UK. There's no vaccine, there's no cure. A series of blasts at a Chinese chemical plant has left dozens of people hospitalised and thousands more out on the streets. The explosions sent plumes of black toxic smoke high into the air, forcing the evacuation of nearby buildings.

The impact of the blasts widespread

shattering the windows of buildings up to 200m away. No deaths have been reported. Officials don't know what caused the incident. An unusual wake-up call for astronauts on the International Space Station. Sir Paul McCartney linking up with the station during a live concert in California. It has to be one of the strangest concerts in history. An audience of thousands on earth, and two in space. This is really exciting for us guys, to be seeing you guys and actually can't believe that we're actually just, you know transmitting to space. This is sensational. CROWD CHEERS Paul McCartney had the idea for the link-up after the Beatles song, 'Good Day Sunshine'

was played to the astronauts in the space shuttle 'Discovery' on their last mission. 200 miles above in space, the astronauts, one Russian and one American sang along. Paul, that was simply a magnificent... we are very honoured again that you have joined us. We consider you an explorer, just as we are. It was a concert that was truly out of this world and it left the astronauts in something of a spin. Ignoring a grave new threat from al-Qa'ida,

the Queen has led Remembrance Day services in London. As Her Majesty laid a wreath, it was revealed police have seized a tape of an al-Qa'ida leader naming the Queen as one of the severest enemies of Islam. But the news had no impact on the service. LAST POST More than 1.75 million people died

Hackett is the current world record holder in the 800m and 1,500m freestyle. The Olympic and world champion will hold a news conference in Melbourne this afternoon to announce his withdrawal. But the 25-year-old is expected to give details of his plans

for more gold at the Beijing Olympics, which will include a 10km open water swim. Hackett has been unbeaten over 1,500 metres since 1997, but has been struggling with a shoulder problem for 12 months.

The Australian and West Indies cricket teams are on their way to Hobart to prepare for Thursday's second Test. Dumped Aussie batsman Simon Katich remains in Sydney still reluctant to talk about his axing. Blues skipper Simon Katich let his bat do the talking for NSW against Queensland. But a hard-hitting 51 off 46 deliveries didn't erase the pain of his sacking. What's that got to do with today? REPORTER: Well, my understanding was... No it wasn't. Everyone was told. Blues opener Phil Jaques again pressed his claims for national duty. An unbeaten 152 - the fifth highest score in the history of the limited overs competition. COMMENTATOR: It's six, it's six. What a way to go! As I've said previously I've got to just keep scoring runs in whatever form of the game it's in just keep mounting the runs and hopefully they'll take notice at some point. Glenn McGrath and Matthew Hayden are back on the same side this week. McGrath should've cooled down after copping a hiding from his Australian team-mate. And gets him for six.

The normally economical McGrath conceded more than six an over as the Bulls successfully chased down the target. Brett Lee continued his plans to bowl fast at all costs warming up for Thursday's Test with 3/30.

Stumps all over the place. Australia's one-day side to play New Zealand next month is announced on Monday.
