Tonight - yet another interest rate

rise leaves mortgage rate hawk --

holders reeling. I might have to

rent out. De Rudd Government

hammered in the latest opinion

polls. The State MP at the centre

of a corruption inquiry resigned as

a parliamentary secretary.

What a champion - a young Aussie becomes the world's top snooker player. Good evening.

Also - the cost of street lighting

forces councils to tighten their


The secrets you need to know to

live to be 100. I danced for six

nights a week when I was younger.

First, borrowers have been slugged

yet again with the Reserve Bank

lifting official interest rates for

the third month in a road. The

Commonwealth Bank has put up its

rate less than our after an

announcement. The other big banks

say their rates are under review.

The 0.25 % interest takes the

official rate to 4.5% which adds

$17 per month. Or at least $50 for $17 per month. Or at least $50 for

a loan of $300,000.

Interest rate hikes are tough on

everyone with a mortgage. Nicole

Lembke fears this one might force

her out of her inner-city apartment.

I might have to rent it out and

look at other cheaper options

because it's too much to pay by

myself. The new rise, effective myself. The new rise, effective

from tomorrow, adds $17 a month for

every $100,000 borrowed. For Kevin

Rudd's working families, the cost

of living went higher today and it

is going to get higher still. This

is a tough decision for families and for small businesses.

Explaining itself, the Reserve Bank

board says that the risk of serious

economic contraction in Australia

passed some time ago.

The housing market is showing considerable buoyancy, and

inflation remains an issue. But the

Board also says with today's

decision, rates for most borrowers

have reached long-term average

levels - a hint that for now, that

will do. Business certainly hopes

so, appealling to the banks not to

pass on the full rise. The message

is that this is now definitely the

time to pause. So will this rise be

enough to prick the growing bubble

in the Australian property market?

The Treasurer wouldn't be drawn on

that, but the calculations for

prospective buyers have just got a

little tighter still. Not

everyone's complaining though -

many retirees benefit as rates go

up. We've been on such a low

interest rate for a long period of

time, so this will be good news for

a lot of the elderly people who

have been saving hard. This have been saving hard. This

interest rate rise was a double

whammy for the government coming

off the back of a major poll slump.

A while ago, as a Sydney minister

said to me that being government of

was about eating manure sandwiches

as gracefully as possible. Kevin as gracefully as possible. Kevin

Rudd has had a smorgasbord of

indigestion in recent weeks. For

once, he did not suggest that but

he has copped a belting. Just two

years ago Kevin Rudd was the most

popular Prime Minister in the

history of Newspoll. Not any more.

His satisfaction has plummeted 11

points in two weeks. His

dissatisfaction has climbed nine

points to 50%. How my job as Prime

Minister is to take decisions in

the national interest. Some of those will not be popular.

those will not be popular. I don't

think I will go for him in the next

election. It is wrecking the whole

place. According to the pollster,

it was the shelving of the

Emissions Trading Scheme. Emissions Trading Scheme.

Particularly the decision to increase the excise on cigarettes

will stop the collapse on the Labor

primary voters meant the government

has shed five points in the two-

party preferred. The Coalition has

gained them for a winning lead. It

is a political Everest that the

Coalition has to climb. Not helping

his Mr Abbott's popularity has

slipped. His dissatisfaction is up

three. If he comes back, we will

have a good government. Senior

figures concede that the past weeks

have been dreadful as the

government we positions for the

election. They will be watching the

polls ahead. Tony Abbott made a

bold prediction when he left a

bold prediction when he left a radio studio.

His Julia Gillard set fire

Karyn Paluzzano, under

the ICAC. follows more damning evidence to

Under fire in the ICAC for allegedly rorting electorate staff

pay claims, Labor MP for Penrith

Karyn Paluzzano stepped down this

afternoon as Parliamentary

Secretary for Education. She's

didn't attend today's hearing but

released a statement saying:

Earlier the Premier had appeared to

back her embattled colleague. I

believe in due process for Members

of Parliament, regardless of their

political affiliation. Now, as is

my long-standing practice, I'm not

going to be commenting on ongoing

matters before the ICAC. The resignation came as whistleblower

Tim Horan, who worked for Mrs

Paluzzano up until January, tipped

a bucket on his former boss. In

evidence to ICAC, he said that Mrs

Paluzzano had devised the rort in

which false wages claims were

presented to the Parliamentary Pay

Office. Instead of working at Karyn Paluzzano's Penrith electoral

office, staff were sometimes paid

to accompany the MP as she went

door-knocking constituents. The

hearing was told electorate staff

worked for the New South Wales

Parliament and were not permitted

to engage in direct electioneering,

campaigning or political

fundraising. Electoral officer

Jennifer Launt told the inquiry she

was intimidated by Mrs Paluzzano

and knew it was wrong to sign false

wages claims. Suburban street

lights could be blacked out to save

money because of a 50% hike in charges by Energy Australia.

Councils are warning they simply

cannot afford it.

They shed light on our world after

dark, and have been doing so for

decades. But street lights are set

to become a luxury some councils

simply can't afford, with Energy

Australia increasing the cost of

their maintenence by up to 50%. It

really leaves you little options -

to either cut services or basically

switch the lights off. 67-year-old

Burwood resident Tom Kaunitz is

outraged about the idea of turning

off street lights. I'm disabled.

There's other people in the street

that have got problems. Any

reduction in lighting at night can

only cause more problems regarding

crime and further vandalism. And

it's not just Burwood residents who

have something to worry about.

Across the state, at least 34

councils will be hit with the price

rise. As of July 1, in dollar terms,

$115,000. Extra? Extra. Every time

you see the lights go on in your

street, it's going to cost you more.

But Energy Australia says the

multi-million dollar price hike was

approved by the Australian Energy

Regulator, and the cash is needed

for maintenance and upgrades. The

regulator sets the price, and you

couldn't get a fairer system. And

councils determining who they get

to provide that service. The price

increase will be effective from

July 1.

We have a new world champion. He is

called Neil Robertson and he is the

first Australian to celebrate

success at the World Snooker

Championships in more than 50 years.

As well as pocketing the $400,000

prize money, he will soon celebrate

becoming a dad. He is snooker's new

super star - a teenage prodigy

turned world beater. Ladies and

gentlemen, your new champion, Neil

Robertson of Australia. With mother

Alison watching on, the title is

the culmination of 12 years on the

European snooker circuit. Robertson

first tried his luck as a raw but

talented 16-year-old. I came to

Cambridge with 500 quid in my

pocket and I had to borrow a

waistcoat off another Australian

player. I couldn't afford to buy

one. I could probably buy a few

more now. Unbridled joy filled the

Melbourne pool hall that Robertson

frequented as a youngster. It

really hit me during that last

frame. You could tell in his facial

expressions that he knew he was

going to win, and it just hit me

then and there. I lost it. It means

so much to me what he's done here.

He put in the hard yards and he's

really been rewarded. A destiny

fulfilled, according to his junior

coach. He used to destroy players.

I used to practice with him. I just

couldn't get to the table. He'd

just blow me away and I'd see

snooker I'd never seen before. The

celebrations are only likely to get

wilder for the young Australian.

Not content with becoming our first

ever snooker world champion and

pocketing more than $400,000 in

prize money, any day now he will

also become a father for the first

time. Fans hope the victory will

put the sport back on the map. He's

a champion. He's a champion

sportsman and a champion person.

Now for a look at the drive in and

around Sydney. Some problems in the

south of Sydney.

Yes, unfortunately. A terrible

accident occurred at fig tree this

afternoon. If you are heading to

Wollongong, the M6 has been

completely closed. Diversions are

in place. An impact for traffic getting out to the north-west.

There has been a smash and North

traffic is. The delay has stretched

back to Lane Cove Council. If

you're heading to the north-west

they are going to be delayed.

A chemical factory inferno has sent

plumes of choking black smoke over plumes of choking black smoke over

Melbourne. Dozens of workers were

evacuated as the blaze took hold of a chemical manufacturing business

in Dandenong. Several big

scene. It was extremely dangerous.

There were numerous explosions and

missiles as a result of the

Are we getting a realistic number

or has this been underestimated? I

could be more. A terrifying

prospect for those whose jobs this

disaster has already claimed. And

for their backyards. Have they done

enough to get a handle on this? No.

They don't know what they're doing.

This is what is at stake - the

beauty of the Mississippi River

Delta. And locals fear that if the

oil isn't capped in the next few

days the sludge will inevitably

make its way in here. Either way,

it's going to get destroyed -

whether the oil destroys it or we

destroy it trying to clean it.

Across the four Gulf states,

six meetings and we see that across

the country small businesses and

retailers are hurting. Two warnings

from all this over the last couple

of days. They will go 0.5% over the

rest of the year spaced out in

response to the higher-than-

expected inflation numbers. I don't

think there will be a strong case

to raise rates in an ticketed

months because we are at normal

levels. It is likely we will start

to see some pain coming out in both

Looking back on his past 100 years,

George Kersley credits his long

I have calmed down now. I have two

schooners of light before lunch. He

still drives his car, and lives

alone, cooking his own meals - a

lifestyle that new research shows

matters much more than good genes

when it comes to living a long life.

That is quite a remarkable finding

- that people that are that old are

still able to manage at home. The

University of New South Wales

studied almost 200 Australian

centenarians. Surprisingly, genes

accounted for only 25% of longevity.

We found that personality is very

important, so people who are likely

to live a long life are those who

are optimistic, resilient and

they're open to change. Almost 90%

saw family once a week. But one of

the biggest secrets to living a

longer life was having a good

social life. With 76% of

respondents saying they attended a

weekly organised group activity. I

go out for lunches three times a

week - Monday, Tuesday and

Wednesday. And so is staying fit

fashion maven Gail Elliott. I am

not formally trained as a designer

but after working from the Saatchi

see as everybody gets their seats.

There is always a bit of gossiping

who is who in the fashion world. If

you are see, forget about it. And

front row today doesn't necessarily

mean front row forever. It can

Good evening. Neil Robinson has

become Australia's first snooker world

world champion since 1975. He has

won $411,000 in prize money which

caps a rags to riches story. A

proud Aussie, at the King of the

green felt. He knows that he has

won this year's World Championship.

He blows a kiss to his mother! She

flew over to see her son become

world champion. He is the champion

of the world! The trip looked

unlikely just days earlier when her

son looked destined for an early

exit. He was down by five frames.

It has followed a lifetime of

persistence. I came over to

Cambridge with 500 quid in my

pocket and I had to borrow a

week's-a waistcoat off another

Australian player. He listed wall

to lynch him among his sporting

heroes. His nephew was the last

Australian to win the world title

five-eighth years ago. He wishes to

return to the days where Eddie

Charlton dominated in the 70s. Now

ranked number 2 in the world,

Robertson has plenty on his plate.

His girlfriend was due to give birth

birth to his first child yesterday.

They were calling the NRL's meeting

a salary cap summit and amazingly

the only club not to meet was the

Melbourne Storm. Melbourne did not

on their plate in Melbourne. There

is no problem in relaying to them

what was spoken about today. The

salary cap was discussed and a

five-man collective bargaining

committee have welcomed some

missions for a change but all

bosses agree that the cap must stay.

No complaints today for the five

Kangaroos players are set to back

up for their clubs 24 hours after

the Test against the New Zealanders.

The players said that the timing

could have been worse. Today's

training session was a tough week

for Anthony Watmough. He is one of

13 players who will back up after

the Test to play in the man and

Dragons game. This is football. He

is what we do. Will have to get off

the plane and go straight to the

football on Saturday. It will not

be easy but it has to be done. If

the players reckon it is better to

back up straight away rather than

after the soreness comes in 48

hours. I feel like a grandfather

them so hopefully I will feel young

straight after. Israel Folau will

not be in the squad. He has a lot

of turmoil. He gets rattled very

easy, all the pressure from the

media and the club. From everyone -

it is making him feel a little

upset at the moment. Deanne the

upsetting thing in Melbourne is the

very changeable weather but come

rain, hail or shine, the $270

million stadium will be officially

opened on Friday night and the

players cannot wait. We got some

photos the other night, it looks

sensational. No matter where you

sit it will look great. The

finishing touches are still being

applied, including a swimming pool.

This is the path that they will

take before it hitting the mixture

of real and synthetic turf. The

crowd that will raise the self-

supporting roof. Lleyton Hewitt has

slammed the International Tennis

Federation over the timing of his

does and this is the way to do it.

They are on their way to raise $1

million. They have just over

$900,000 at the moment. A story

that touch me is Maarten Morgan.

Why are you on this ride? About two

years ago I was diagnosed with

cancer and like anyone, they want

to know how they can cure it and I

read Lance Armstrong's book. That

got me into cycling and I'm here

with this bunch. The good news is

that you are now in remission? Yes.

It is important because it is

payback time. I was treated so well

and I really want to pay them back. Fantastic stuff urine could

remission, but the bad news is that

you're still wearing ridiculous

clothes. If you want to follow the

tour, why wouldn't you? It is going

through some great places. You can

follow them on a life page. They

will go past your place. You were

talking to people, educating them,

it is a wonderful situation. Once

in every 29 seconds. That's how

many people are being told they

have cancer. Weather-wise - what a

beautiful one today? Is still nice

and warm out here. Got up to 27

degrees enrichment, 6 above average

in Sydney. The run comes to a halt

tomorrow, 21 degrees but fine blue

skies until the weekend.

There are a few showers reaching

the coast later, up to 15

millimetres on the south-west

slopes. Head along to support these

people with big hearts and smooth the legs.

This is where we wave goodbye! Look

at that, just man -- everyone

saying goodbye. That is all from us

at Ten News. We will continue to

update you until our next bulletin.

We hope you enjoy the rest of your day. Red Bee Media Australia Supertext Captions by D'OHH! (SCREAMS)
