Tonight, speculation of an August

election as a Julia Gillard shores

up high-powered friends. They

Mark Latham names names. Plus the

violence to zero. Good evening, I

am Deborah Knight. Also tonight,

iPhone fours bore reception with

claims of mysterious stains.

But first, there's growing

speculation tonight that a federal

election could be called within

weeks. Julia Gillard has wasted no

time making her mark as the new

Prime Minister - talking with world

leaders, and assuring President

Obama he can count on her in Afghanistan.

The former PM once said, "Fair

shake of the sauce bottle" - now

some are pondering the fairness of

squeezing the leadership from Kevin

Rudd. The ALP's own website is

littered with messages denouncing

the backroom deal which made Julia

Gillard PM. Kevin Rudd has been so

touched by the flood of public

support, the now former PM tweeted

a message of thanks. He may just

need to change his Twitter name.

Subdued Labor Mps left Canberra

The events of the past 24 hours

Julia Gillard says she had to

become PM because the Government

had lost its way, but it seems

voters didn't share that view. A

Morgan poll has found that in the

held final days of Rudd's reign, Labor

held an election-crushing 6-point

lead over the Coalition. Former

Labor leader Mark Latham knows well

how quickly loyalties can swing.

He's warned Ms Gillard to watch her

beside her. back. He says her enemies are right

I think she needs to be careful,

Wayne Swan is no fan of hers.

Mr Latham said senior cabinet

ministers Jenny Macklin, Lindsay

Tanner and Anthony Albanese are also no Gillard friends.

They hate each other, and the

moment Gillard's popularity drops -

I suppose she will be the next one

for the knife.

The Opposition says Julia Gillard

is a puppet of those who

orchestrated her rise.

I think it's a disgrace really that

decisions about the most senior

office in the country is really at

unions. the beck and call of a number of

Paul Bongiorno has had an exclusive

interview with Julia Gillard. Thank

you thought in joining us. Is day

one beginning to sink in? The

weight is sinking in, the weight of

the job. I look forward to add some

personal point up for a few moments of

personal reflection but I have no

time for that. We have been focused,

I had been working with the team

today and had the Cabinet meet to

talk about the issues that we need

to deal with. That is getting the

Government on track and if the big Government on track and if the big

picture things that matter for

Australian families - strong

economy, having a job and the

services that people rely on, grape

quality schools and health systems.

The Morgan poll adult piece

afternoon, the last taken when

Kevin Rudd was a Prime Minister.

Labor improved its lead, did you go

to early? I took the decision I

made in what I believe to be the

national interest. I believed a

good Government was losing its way

and consequently I thought it was

important that we got back on track.

If back on track because it serves

the national interests and it

serves the interests of the

Australian working families. If I

do not want this country to go to

an election campaign and somehow

lapse into a tough Tony Abbott led

Government with all of the risks.

They Paul suggests that the

Government was not off track? Pulse

will be poles and I believe that

for the analysts. I formed my own

that you and I have particularly

formed the view that it was

important for the Government to get important for the Government to get

back on track and make sure that

people have got the benefits of

work, Tony Abbott did not seem to

protect jobs during the financial

crisis. If great quality schools,

and we have had more than a decade

of neglect on those. If also, good

health services as opposed to the

past cutbacks by must add up. A

year surprise by the hostility to

the changeover? Room this is

obviously been a week of the

emotions and I understand that.

Politics is something that is about

the national interest and the big

issues for this nation's future. It

is also something about human

belied -- beings, if the real

flesh-and-blood individuals that flesh-and-blood individuals that

our politicians. There has been

there has been heard and I expect

that some parts of the community

are reflecting that. I am the

giving it a priority, is a day

redesign? And this is a building on

good well. Goodwill that has

already been generated with me

ensuring that the Government

advertising was taken of TV. Up and

the mining industry built on that

goodwill by taking their ads of.

There is a lot of agreement here.

The mining industry can pay more

tax and Australians are entitled to

their fair share. We will keep

building on that.

Our new Prime Minister is also

causing a bit of a stir around the

world. And no more so than in Barry

- the tiny Welsh town where she was born.

It may be on the other side of the

globe, but the Welsh town of Barry

has claimed Julia Gillard as its

own. Our new Prime Minister spent

her first few years here living

next door to Basil Baker and his

family - until her poor health

forced a shift to a warmer climate.

Well, I hope she gets on fine, I'm

sure she will. She used to have

plenty of drive, she wouldn't have

got there otherwise. And if she as

nice a person as she was when she

was young, she will go a long way.

Barry might be abuzz, but so is

Julia Gillard's electorate of Lalor.

Be nice to have a female

perspective. I don't know, she

comes across very genuine. I've met

her on a number of occasions. She's

very easy to approach.

Not everyone, though, sees it the

same way - Kevin Rudd's

controversial nephew isn't a fan,

and plans to stand against her. Political landscape aside, Julia

Gillard's elevation to the top job has mixed

has mixed things up in lots of

little ways, and to get a sense of

that, look no further than one of these.

Advertisers moved quickly - witty

one-liners selling everything from

airline seats to fast-food chicken

and furniture. Cartoonists, too,

are working their bristles hard -

among them Warren Brown, trying

feverishly to get the character right.

Her face is very pointy, very

angular, she has big earlobes, she has wild hair.

Very exciting and a great departure

from the very dull and grey Kevin Rudd.

But being PM doesn't bring any leniency.

I think the gloves will come off,

because I think cartoonists have to because I think cartoonists have to

be equally unfair to everyone. And,

now that she's PM, I reckon, you

know, it's open season.

It also means a run on red ink -

although some have taken the theme to an extreme.

Eddy Meyer, Ten News.

A jury will start its third day of deliberations tomorrow over controversial surgeon Jayant Patel.

The Queensland doctor is accused of

killing three patients, and maiming

another. Ten reporter Anthony

Donaghy has more from Brisbane.

The jury has now been sent back to

their hotel room where there will

be locked up overnight. This is

after they failed to reach a

verdict as to whether or not they

think Jayant Patel is guilty or not

guilty over the debts of three of

his patients and the greed is

bodily harm of one of them. This

happened during his time as head

surgeon at Thunderbird base

waiting for - the premiere of

Thousands of 'Twi-hards' crammed

the sidelines of the red carpet -

some had camped out for days.

some had camped out for days. Their

devotion paid off. Vampire heart-

throb Robert Pattinson, his on- screen love interest Kristen Stewart and reluctant werewolf Taylor Lautner signed autographs

and took photos with their adoring fans.

It's mind-blowing. I can't believe

it, but the fact is we wouldn't be

here without them, so we're very

thankful for that. British-born Pattinson British-born Pattinson says he

can't get used to the frenzy.

I'm still kind of processing it,

but it's amazing to be a part of

this, you know.

'Eclipse' follows on from 'New

Moon', with Stewart's character

Bella Swan finally forced to choose

between her love for vampire Edward

Cullen and best friend Jacob Black.

You have the love triangle that gets even more heated, you gets even more heated, you have

these two opposing clans that are

teaming up for a common cause, you

have the theme of vengeance that's

underlying the film and then you

have these huge epic battle sequences.

It's rare to find a really good

story that is an unapologetic love

story, but it's not a story full of

tragedy and drama with a love story

tacked on.

Australian 'Twilight' fans will

have to wait a little longer to see the movie. 'Eclipse' the movie. 'Eclipse' opens in

cinemas nationally on July 1.

Up next, fingerprinted and

photographed to get into a pub. The

new way to cut booze bashing. Plus

it new iPhone users have hang-ups,

poor reception for the international launch.

Apple's newest gadget, the iPhone 4,

has debuted overseas, and some

customers aren't happy. After

launching in the US, Europe and

Japan, early adopters are

complaining about mysterious stains

on the screen.. And that holding

the phone a certain way causes

reception problems. Apple's answer

- don't hold it that way! The

iPhone 4 goes on air in Australia next month.

An infamous hotel has cut its

assault rate to zero by using

special technology. But there's a catch to getting in.

Once ranked amongst the worst for

alcohol-fuelled violence in Sydney,

The Coogee Bay Hotel is trying to

improve its reputation with

controversial new technology -

scanning everyone's fingerprints,

drivers licence and taking their photo.

The computers have been trialled over the last three over the last three weekends with

no assaults recorded.

While it's only a small snapshot,

and we're not saying it's a

solution to all the problems, what

we have seen in the last three

weeks - is it has curbed people's behaviour.

The company providing the

technology stresses - the

fingerprints are not kept.

What we do is we read the finger

and come up with a numerical number

which is uniquely that person and

we delete the fingerprint straight

away. At no time do we store away. At no time do we store the fingerprint.

The number, photo and other

personal information is stored

offsite, along with manager's

reports of bad behaviour, red

flagging any troublemakers when they return.

The fact that we have the ability to identify troublemakers makes

people think twice before they act.

Even organisations that would

typically be critical of such

technology are quietly surprises

with the outcome of this trial. The

NSW Council for Civil Liberties NSW Council for Civil Liberties

says more time is needed to make

sure the data isn't abused in the future.

There has to be enough information

about the integrity of this system

to give the public confidence this

information is being properly

stored. The data is also available

to police on request, if they're

doing an investigation.

The vuvuzela might be the bane of

many World Cup fans but a song has

just been released to celebrate it.

So yes if your name rhymes with

vuvuzela, Mandela, Uri vuvuzela, Mandela, Uri Geller or

Cinderella if you are in the song

that is being written by British it

musicians to cash in on instruments

at popularity. We haven't seen

anything captured that imagination

for quite a while so we thought to

jump on it. It is annoying and

expect to hear the song as a

novelty ring on a phone at any you soon.

Cats went in 1 point up at quarter

time. Looking good...very good. St

soldiered on - dominating the

The reigning premiers up by 16

points at half time. But it could

come at a cost - Steve Johnson

losing patience with a niggling Steven Baker.

A treble of mistakes from Matthew

He's kicked three at the MCG.

The make up of Collingwood's team

for tomorrow night's Sydney

blockbuster remains unclear. After

making 5 changes at the selection

table, Mick Malthouse could be forced to forced to make more with 2 key

defenders in doubt.

the dew. Dumped to the twos. Paul

Medhurst went to work with the VFL.

Josh Fraser will join him in the

seconds on Sunday. But he at least

got to train with the main group.

Named as an emergency, he won't play and won't even travel to

Sydney. He's been around long

enough to know he's still in our

best. He'll come back in the side.

But of more concern for the Pies

was two missing defenders. Already

without injured skipper Nick

Maxwell, Heath Shaw and Simon

Prestigiacomo didn't train. Both

travelled tonight with the team.

But it's believed Shaw - who hasn't

trained for over a week is under

the biggest cloud.

Brent Macaffer taken as cover

should he fail to come up. Tomorrow

night to be crucial for Collingwood.

If they win a ninth straight

against Sydney - they'll jump ten

points clear of the Swans, Hawks

and Blues. And six points ahead of

the fifth placed Dogs.

We have not spoken

That everyone looks at the ladder.

That will be the bonus if we win.

The boys have been saying we're

sick of losing to Collingwood. It's

about time we got one back.

All the best to make.

Tim Hodges, Ten News. If the Swans

Shane Mumford's contract still

allows him 'one' of the pleasures

from the days when he was a part

He's a rarity in the modern game.

he was lucky enough to make a

living as a professional.

from 5 in the morning to 5 at night,

big hours earning minimum wage,

earning $205 per week.

Does it give you an apreciation for

what it means to be a foobtaller?

Oh, definitely I realise how good

we've got it as AFL footballers.

Do you think it's an advantage for

you compared to the other

footballers who come strait into

football and dont work?

I think it does in some ways

because I've learnt the value of money.

One of the hilites of Saturday

night's vital match at ANZ stadium

will be Mumford's clash with former Swan darren Jolly.

Darren's obviously a good ruckman.

I enjoy a challenge so hopefully me

Captain Rocky Elsom has accused his

players of a fade out against the

Knowing what to do and being able

And the Plays of the Week.

The home of tennis - Wimbledon -

has hosted the longest match in the sport's history.

John Izner defeated Nicolas Mahoo

in the final set 70-68 setting a

string of records, likely to stand

the test of time.

For the first time in 33 years the

Queen came to Wimbledon.

But her majesty did not have the

best seats in the house. They were

outback on a cramped court 18.

In a battle of the giants the

longest match in history - over

after 11 hours and 5 minutes.

At two metres plus - or six foot

nine - American John Isner beat six

foot three Frenchman Nicholas Mahut

- 70 games to 68 in the fifth set.

Their epic played over three days.

My coach told me I could play 10 hours.

The pair thundered down a record

215 aces but couldn't break each

other's serve. The crowd hung off

every point, almost 1,000 of them -

as players had to hang off the net.

At 47 games a piece in the final

set, the scoreboard had to be

reprogrammed. The decider totalled

a record 138 games. But spectator

stamina outlasted the sun.

Game, set, and finally match.

Both players considered winners.

Unlike Svetlana Kuznetsova.

Beaten by new Australian Anastasia Rodionova, Kuznetsova refused to

shake hands with her former countrywoman.

So Rodionova through in 3 sets. Top

seed Serena Williams needed just 49

minutes to book her place in round

3. It took a little longer for

Isner to end the history maker.

Andy Murray impressed the queen

while Rafa Nadal needed 5 sets to overcome Robin Haase.

Jorge Lorenzo's bid to extend his

MotoGP world championship lead

started in perfect fashion today

when the Spaniard topped the

opening practice time sheets at Assen.

Australian Casey Stoner was 2nd fastest on his Ducati.

Lorenzo has now won 3 of the 5

races so far this season and is

favourite at the Dutch track. You

can catch qualifying right her on

ONE later tonight, with coverage

starting at 11pm.

Perry Crosswhite knows the clock is

excited the countdown has reached

the 100 day mark.

it is getting close and I'm excited.

After working closely with the

indians on venue development he is

confident Delhi will be right to go.

Let's not delude ourselves.

Let's not delude ourselves. It

would be graded the venues had been

finished a year ago but that is not

the case but I think they will get

there and there may be some things

will happen a long way which they will have to fix.

Crosswhite's had a taste of terrorism when he represented

Australia at the Munich Olympics,

but hopes the games will not be a target.

Most nations in the Commonwealth

are a third world nations are not

sure what terrorists would gain by

attacking the Commonwealth Games.

We have people from all religions

across the world and all governments.
