bunch of racists. It's 6:00am,

Thursday, 26 May. I'm Ron Wilson,

I'm Toni Collette. Also American

President Barack Obama -- President

Barack Obama assures them that

Americas being world leaders is not

over. Maroons win State of Origin

in Brisbane. And in finance, the

way to wealth in Australia is no

of people that dig holes in the

ground. A check of the weather:

The UN High Commissioner for human

rights criticised Australia's

approach to asylum seeker. Navay

Pillay says racism is behind it.

with She made comments after meetings

with the Prime Minister and other

Ministers. Her concerns come as the

Government confirms plans to send

asylum seeker to Malaysia will be

finalised in weeks. The NSW

Government upset the state's

largest public sector union,

wanting to cap wages. In

retaliation the union will ban

will unpaid overtime. The Government

will not alter working conditions

for 300,000 public sector workers

like police, teachers and nurses.

The Premier insists he wants a

better deal for taxpayers.

Additional productivity savings

that are promised and for which

people will get wage increases

above the 2.5% will have to be

delivered. Labor says the new wages

bill goes too far. Shift loading,

penalty rates, maternity leave and

parliament long service can be ripped away. In

parliament both sides slugged it

out in a rowdy question time.

Kogarah MP Cherry Burton was ejected

ejected from the house, after

accusing the Premier of misleading

parliament. The Speaker is biased.

It was a disgrace that I was thrown

out. This legislation represents an

unprecedented attack on public

sector workers that will not be

tolerated. They are planning a

campaign to fight it, leaving

unions and the Government on a

collision course. Public servants

in WA face scrutiny over the number

of gifts they receive from

companies looking for favours.

Senior health staff have accepted

$700,000 worth of flights,

accommodation and gifts in the past eight

eight months. I have concerns. I

would be concerned if they were a

personal consumption nature,

expensive champagne, iPads and

trips. The Director-General of

health says the det is in the

process of reviewing -- Department

is in the process of reviewing gift

policy. South Australia is paying

teachers to quit. 103 teachers

nearing the end of their careers

opted to receive $50,000 to leave.

We are worried about those young

teachers considering leaving the

profession because they get a

series of temporary contracts. The

new batch of teachers will start in

the next school term. NSW clubs

have had a big win in a fight

against the Federal Government's

pokie reforms. Clubs with 15 or

fewer poker machines will be given

an extra four years to comply with

reforms. In NSW, that means half of

all clubs will qualify for delay,

but 2% of clubs in Victoria. The

decision is expected to put

pressure on rural NSW independent

Tony Windsor and Rob Oakshott to

support the legislation. Barack

Obama is the first US President to

address Britain's parliament, he

spoke to their determination to

fight terrorism and maintain their

roles as world leaders. Standing

ovation inside London's 900-year-

old Westminster Hall as the 44th

President became the first in

history to address what he called

the mother of parliaments. I am

told that the last three speakers

here have been the Pope, Her

Majesty the Queen, and Nelson

Mandela. Which is either a very

high bar, or the beginning of a

very funny joke. Two former Prime

Ministers and a few other famous

faces watched on as Barack Obama

described the US/United Kingdom

alliance as not only special, but

essential. Our fight is focused on

defeating al-Qaeda and extremivity

allies. In that effort we will not

relent. Sentiments echoed during

robust discussions behind closed

doors, Hillary Clinton joining the

President in a cabinet briefing

about the Arab uprising, and crimes

of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. It is

impossible to imagine a future for

Libya with Gaddafi in power. He

must go. There will not be a let-up

in the pressure that we are

applying. The leaders and their

wives found time to host a Barb cue

for veterans and their families,

before the First Lady toured a university to speak with students

about falling in love with the

future President. Talent, and he's

cute, you know, I thought he would

be useful. But I had no idea he

would be President. The couple will

now fly to France for the next leg

of their 6-day, 4-country European

Tour. If you think people in the

solar power industry are doing it

tough here, spare a thought for

these two installers. The

astronauts have been installing

wiring on the International Space

six hours in space, 350km above the

earth's surface. 'Endeavour' will

return on 1 June. There's only one

more mission planned before July,

and the program will be retired

then. Queensland staged a stunning

Billy Slater scores. The guys had

Detectives from Criminal Investigations arrested her and took her back to the ACT Watch House . She's facing the ACT Magistrates Court after being charged with aggravated robbery, money laundering and driving a motor vehicle without consent. In a bid to get the budget back to surplus, the Federal Government is calling on all public agencies to roll back on spending. But plans to slash the spending to some of Canberra's landmarks have been condemned by a veteran Labor MP. But both the unions and Sydney MP Daryl Lelham are calling for cultural institutions like the War Memorial, National Gallery and National Museum to be

exempt. Meantime, a street preacher who stabbed his former neighbour at the Ainsle Shops has been sentenced to nine years behind bars. The victim was left a quadriplegic, paralyzed down one side of his body after the July 2009 attack.

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights criticised Australia's approach

approach to asylum seeker, Navi

Pillay says racism is behind

Australia's treatment of boat Australia's treatment of boat

people and Aborigines. This boatload

boatload of asylum seeker never

made it to Australia, their vessel

breaking down in Indonesia waters.

The treatment of those who made the

journey appalls the United Nations

High Commissioner for Human Rights. Australia's Australia's mandatory immigration

detention regime is in breach of

Australia's international human

rights obligations. This is a

system that undermines people's

human rights, drives people to

self-destruction. At least one

Liberal MP Broke ranks with the

party, unhappy with the policy. I

don't believe in mandatory

detention, it's costing the country

a lot of money. We don't accept the

view that's put on mandatory

detention. We are great respecters detention. We are great respecters

of humans rights. Navi Pillay met

Julia Gillard to express concerns,

Minister, Chris Bowen. The plan to

assurances that their rights will

International Criminal Court judge

was critical of policies targeting

Aborigines, urging a rethink of the

Northern Territory intervention.

Another round of deadly tornados

pounded the United States, leaving

13 more people dead. The death toll

from Sunday's storm alone hit 122.

Storm chasers captured the twisters

on video, as they tore through

Oklahoma. You see people walking

around stunned. Neighbourhoods are around stunned. Neighbourhoods are

gone in the suburbs of the Oklahoma

city. The round of weather that

struck during the rush hour killed

eight people, injuring dozens more.

Look at that, guys. That is

unbelievable. This is just one

damage path. Jessy's brother took

cover in a neighbour's cellar. The

tornado took a horse and his house.

It's rough. Look at it. This is his

life. The same violent system

caused deaths in Arkansas and

Kansas, setting off sirens in Kansas, setting off sirens in Joplin Missouri. Residents who Joplin Missouri. Residents who

survived the twister are on edge.

spoke a lot about fate, being the

best person you can be. The

messages that Oprah is used to messages that Oprah is used to giving. A lot of celebrities have

powerful, she postponed the rap

tour until after the final shows

the United States. That this is a

moment of television history. Oprah
