Heading to Bundaberg today where the health scandal which has been so damaging for the government began, to gain power they must win an unprecedented 22 seats.

But the Coalition has already stumbled initially refusing to say who would be Premier if they pull off a win. National's Leader Lawrence Springborg now says it will be him. But what happens if the Coalition wins with a majority of Liberal seats? Well, that's simply not going to happen and Dr Flegg said that yesterday. And it's been revealed the Premier will use $640 million of New South Wales money to boost his campaign coffers. The funds are from GST payments south of the Tweed and will be used for pledges on water and health. The New South Wales Premier wants the money back. But Mr Beattie says Queensland needs the cash because of the State's population boom. We've got huge pressure from growth. An extra 1,500 Queenslanders every week. A large number from New South Wales and Victoria.

Police in Britain have made another arrest in connection to the alleged transatlantic bomb plot. It comes as new security measures spark a war of words between airlines and airport managers. As further flight cancellations and delays continue to hamper airline passengers in the UK, friction has developed between the airlines and airport managers BAA. A number of airlines, including British Airways,

are now considering suing BAA for damages claiming they failed to have an adequate emergency plan in place. We're working very closely with our airline partners

and what I can guarantee is that we have got the right measures to secure the safety of the travelling passengers.

It's also been revealed the restriction on carry-on luggage has led to more than 10,000 items going astray. As police seek further evidence against the alleged plotters, arrest number 24 was made north-west of London. Of the 46 properties searched since the alleged plot was uncovered, nearly half are still being examined. It follows the release of security camera pictures of one of the men already in custody. The vision shows 22-year-old Tayib Rauf, who's wearing a white T-shirt and beige pants, carrying out deliveries for his father's business.

Friends of Mr Rauf hope it will prevent the public from jumping to conclusions over his guilt or innocence. It means that he's looking after his dad's business and he's not the sort of the person who, you know, is going to blow himself up. Almost a week after the initial arrests, Britain's security alert has been eased from 'critical' to 'severe'. Cameron Baud, Ten News. US television executives have arrived in Gaza City to push for the release of two kidnapped colleagues. The Fox Network representatives are meeting Palestinian security forces, the President and Prime Minister hoping they'll intervene in the case. Journalist Steve Centanni and cameraman Olaf Wiig were taken by masked gunmen near the headquarters of the Palestinian security services on Monday.

No-one has claimed responsibility for the kidnapping. Former Israeli PM Ariel Sharon has contracted pneumonia. The 78-year-old has been in a coma since suffering a massive stroke seven months ago. In the last 24 hours, his condition has drastically deteriorated. New scans show decreased brain function as well as severe chest infection. His family is at his bedside at the Jerusalem hospital. A known Australian paedophile is to be deported from Thailand.

Paul Thompson, who's committed dozens of sexual offences on children, was arrested while leaving for Cambodia to renew his Thai visa. The 57-year-old is not allowed out of Australia because he's on a list of child-sex offenders and is required to report to police. It's alleged Thompson made his way to South-East Asia using various aliases. The Philippines has declared a state of emergency and is appealing for assistance, after an oil spill in the country's south east. The Government will ask Japan and Indonesia to help dam the 36km-long slick that was first noticed at the weekend when a tanker began to sink.

The contaminated region is one the country's best locations for fishing and diving. A Geelong player apologises to team-mates for an on-field gaffe. That's when Ten's morning news returns.

Meantime, Manly centre Steve Matai witnessed the outburst and says it wasn't necessary because the referee got the call right in the first place. Emily Groves, Ten News. To AFL - and young Geelong defender Josh Hunt has apologised to his team-mates for an on-field gaffe last Sunday. The 24-year-old admits he lacked bravery

in a marking contest against the Saints. It was a moment Josh Hunt will live to rue perhaps for the remainder of his playing days - pulling out of a marking contest against the Saints. Yesterday he faced his demons and apologised for his duck from grace. He put his hand up - we had a review - he put his hand up and apologised to the Geelong. That's footy. The Kangaroos appear on the brink of severing ties with out-of-form and out-of-favour defender Jonathan Hay. The 26-year-old now on the brink of being dumped from the Roos' VFL side, Tasmania, after poor footy and poor discipline. In terms of how many more chances - as I said, the ball's in his court. We just want him to be a professional AFL footballer. Still with two years remaining on his contract, some think

the Roos should cop the financial whack of a million-dollar contract and sack the fullback. I would think you'd make a decision somewhere. And, 12 days after breaking his leg, St Kilda's Matt Maguire remains in hospital. He's now had three operations to treat compartment syndrome. Tim Hodges, Ten News.
