The Prime Minister and the

Opposition Leader to sit down today

to thrash out the asylum seeker

debate before the policy fails yet again.

It's 6am, Monday September 19. Good

morning, everyone, I'm Ron Wilson.

I'mEllie Southwood. Also this

morning - winter is over and here

comes the sun. A fire ban is put

into place across NSW and a

scorcher expected for Queensland.

In sport - Australia's Casey Stoner

has claimed his eighth win of the

season at the Aragon Grand Prix.

And in finance, the gloom-and-doom

continues in the retail sector.

Opposition has made it clear it's

not in favour of proposed

amendments of the Migration Act.

Tony Abbott will meet with the

Prime Minister today. I think in

its current form, it is

exceptionally unlikely that we will

support the bill. There's still a Cabinet

Cabinet and party room process. Mr

Abbott is interested only in his

own personal interest and not in

the national interest. Greens

leader Bob Brown says that politics

are getting in the way of humanity.

A new survey shows Australians are

coming around to the idea of a

mining tax. When the superprofits

tax was announced last year, it had tax was announced last year, it had

only 50/50 support in the community

but according to a poll today, the

percentage of people against the

idea has moved to 27%. Revenue from

the mining tax will be used to

reduce the corporate tax rate from

30% to 29%. reduce the corporate tax rate from

30% to 29%. Weather forecasters say

there's more bad weather on the way

for WA. The SES received more than

80 calls for help at the weekend

after violent wind and torrential

rain hit areas. Wild winds smashed windows

windows and destroyed roofs leaving

one family homeless. I thought it

was some kind of tornado, really.

Just terrified. The storm has just

blown off the fence completely.

Forecasters predict the weather in

the west will remain unsettled for

at least a week.

And things are heating up on the

east coast. A total fire ban will

come into force in parts of NSW

today. Queensland is expecting a scorcher.

180 fires burned across Queensland

over the weekend. Higher than

average temperatures causing spot

fires to break out. The weather

bureau warns today could be even

worse. Just to know that any fires

that were going, they could become

uncontrollable. A total fire ban is

in place for the far west of NSW

and Queenslanders are also on alert and Queenslanders are also on alert with temperatures expected to soar

again today as high as 40 degrees

in the south-west of the State.

Authorities are urging residents to

hold off on permit burns. Around

the south-east region, there is

plenty of grass. But particularly

across the range where there's been

good rain, the grass loads are

really quite high. A ridge of high

pressure is acting as a lid over

Queensland trapping all the smoke.

A thick haze blanketing the south-

east. North-westerly winds and low

humidity are providing perfect

conditions for fire and they're

expected to continue for days.

Certainly, we're concerned. It has

the potential to be a significant season.

Queensland retailers and the

Teacher's Union have both backed a

Queensland Government plan to shake

up the State's holiday calendar.

Because most public holidays fall

in the first-half of the year,

Premier Anna Bligh wants to move

the Queen's birthday to October

instead of June. She also wants to

cluster pupil-free days so the

Easter break goes for two weeks.

Teachers say they've called for the

changes for years because it would

bring Queensland into line with

other States.

Authorities say that the death toll

from a plane crash at an air show

in the US is likely to rise. Nine

spectators were killed and at least

50 people were injured when a plane

lost control at the National

Championship Air Races in Nevada.

Debris flew everywhere when a WWII

plane disintegrated on impact. The

crash killed several fans and

injured dozens of people who had no

time to react. It happened in a

split second. 74-year-old Jimmy

Leeward died when his plane

nosedived into the ground near a

VIP seating section. Witnesses say

that the experienced pilot and

movie stuntman appeared to

manoeuvre his modified P51 Mustang

so it didn't crash directly into

the grand stands. He would not be

able to tolerate the fact that it

was anybody hurt. Much less, died.

People in the crowd saw the plane

headed right for them. You think -

is this it? Am I going to die?

Three National Transportation

Safety Board investigators were

already at the air field when the

accident happened. A full team is

in place now combing through the

evidence to figure out what went

wrong. Investigators say that crews

are inspecting debris spread out are inspecting debris spread out

over more than an acre. They were

able to identify and recover parts able to identify and recover parts

from the accident aircraft tail.

The NTSB wants to know if those

pieces broke off before the crash,

possibly causing the pilot to lose

control. In Reno, Nevada, Ten News.
