The health of a NSW farmer is

rapidly deteriorating as he enters

the sixth week of a hunger strike

protesting a ban on land clearing. Peter Spencer's supporters have

rallied at Parliament House urging

the Prime Minister to intervene.

People power cracking the whip for

action as Peter Spencer entered the

43rd day of a hunger strike at his

southern NSW, more than 300

supporters backed his fight for

compensation over laws which ban

him from clearing his property.

There is a word for that and the

word is communism. But it was the

Howard Government which introduced

the ban a decade ago in the name of

battling climate change. Fed up

after years of fighting in the

courts, the 58-year-old started his

hunger strike high above the ground.

He had a hard day yesterday and his

health is deteriorating. He has

lost a lot of weight. You do not go

that long without eating and not

have some physical downturn but he

is still sound of mind. He's

threatening to starve himself to

death unless the PM intervenes.

Peter Spencer has been visited by

the Parliamentary Secretary and his

local member. These protesters will

next take their support directly to

Peter Spencer's wind tower, where

he'll also let doctors in to

evaluate his condition for the

first time in 43 days. The

opposition has pleaded for him to

come down. We want you to come down.

Yes! So c'mon Kevin, get moving -

before Thursday so I can give him a hug.

The long awaited review into

executive salaries has rejected a

salary cap. The Government was

talking tough, but now says corporate Australia must govern

itself. They walked the walk but

the Government's no longer talking

tough in the corporate playground.

It's not the role of Government,

it's not the role of ministers to

sit around setting salaries. At the

height of the financial crisis,

executive salaries topped the

Government's hit list. These

outrageous approaches can't be

justified in the clear light of day.

But none of the recommendations in

the productivity commissions final

report address salary caps or

strengthen shareholder authority

over executive remuneration. Kevin

Rudd declared war on executive

salaries, just as he's declared war

on 20 other things over the past

two years and he hasn't waged it

very effectively. The draft two

strike policy has been dumped for a

3-strike policy, making it

virtually impossible for

shareholders to force a board spill.

If you want to sort of get your ego

going with this chest beating exercise about how evilcorporate

executives are then I would have

thought you'd come out with a

document that is stronger than you

did. The report found executive pay

has surged 250% in Australia in

just the past six years, and that

the CEOs of the top 20 companies in

Australia are taking home an

average of 10 million each year in

salary alone. Gail Kelly is no

exception. She also owns $40

million of Westpac shares. The

review refused to give shareholders

power to veto how much company

stocks execs can hold. Without a

cap of salaries, without some

disincentive by way of tax

treatment then corporate greed will

continue to escalate. And the

lessons of the past year, may be forgotten.

Still to come, a founding member of

Split Enz charged with stalking.

Plus, a couple swamped with traffic

fines for offences they didn't

commit. The car is a $1,000 car,

it's going to cost me more than a

Ferrari, you know. And a $180,000

dollar payday for an Aussie darts player in London.

Police are investigating the death

of a fisherman who's body was found

floating in seas off Kurnell. The

him. Police retrieved fishing gear

from rocks near Point Potter and

been run up by the new car owner

but because of bureaucratic

bungling this man has copped the

blame. They said my licence will be

suspended because I have not paid

his finds. I did not commit any

crime. He runs his own business and

has had to take days off work to

fight the fines in court. We had

I had to pay $50. All of this

registration so the RTA is refusing

to update its ownership details.

coming. Anything that happens with

this kind now, we are still

A piece of Australia's Antarctic

history has been found by accident.

Melting ice has revealed the

century old remains of a plane Sir

Douglas Mawson tried to fly across the frozen continent.

They mightn't seem like much but

these rusted pipes represent one of the most significant recent

historical finds on the frozen

wastelands of Antarctica. Encased wastelands of Antarctica. Encased

in ice for a hundred years, they're

believed to be the remnants of Sir

Douglas Mawson's plane. First plane

ever brought to Antarctica and it's

just a few hundred metres away in

the ice. The famous Australian

polar explorer bought the first

Vickers monoplane in 1911, just

eight years after the Wright

Brothers took to the sky. But the

plane's first flight ended in

failure and after a short stint as

a tractor, the aircraft was lost

until an expedition member stumbled

across it at Cape Denision on New

Year's Day. I noticed something in

the water but all I could see was

some sort of corrosive objects -

2mm objects. Mark Farrell didn't

know what he'd found until he told

the others in the expedition. They

got pretty excited - more excited

than me, really. The Australian

Government will decide whether the

relics will be brought to Australia

or left at Cape Denison.
