It creates uncertainty and that's has remained steady The Telstra share price of the T3 sale, since the announcement even gaining a little value as investors wait for more detail on the float. But former Finance Department deputy secretary Stephen Bartos believes investors may be wary of buying T3 stock if it appears Telstra is shackled to the Government. Until the Government actually sells out all of its shareholding

it will unavoidably have a conflict of interest. I agree with what he says that the ultimate objective to have it in the private sector

is so that the Government doesn't have a conflict of interest. Mr Bartos says the Commonwealth will still have a controlling interest in the telco even after T3. Telstra already believes it's being held back from achieving its full potential in the market. There is nothing going on now in the provision of telecommunications in this country which is going to see us as a competitive nation 10 years from now. And while many in the Government are angry over Telstra boss Sol Trujillo's attacks on costly regulations, the Treasurer far from wanting the CEO to go says he must stick around. I think he is very important in the sale process, absolutely.

And that is why I think it is important that he stay there.

Murray McCloskey, Ten News. There'll be a state funeral for Australian Democrats founder Don Chipp who died last night in Melbourne.

The Prime Minister says he was a passionate man who made a huge impact on public life. The ravages of Parkinson's disease clearly evident,

two years ago Don Chipp reflected on his own demise. I'm very conscious of death, not because of me. The deeper the love. the deeper the grief, it's true. The deeper people love me, the deeper they grieve and I worry about the loved ones I leave behind. Dead at 81, he leaves behind his wife, Idun, and six children. His public life spanned 30 years.

He was a minister in four Liberal governments, quitting the party in 1977 after falling out with Malcolm Fraser. To me, the most endearing thing about Don Chipp was that, to the very end, he was passionate and committed to the causes in which he believed. His legacy was the founding of a third political force - the Australian Democrats. Their peak - the balance of power and nine senators in the '90s. To keep the bastards honest - no-one else will. Thanks very much. Ironically, Don Chipp's greatest regret

was his dishonesty as navy minister during the Vietnam War. I made a big mistake - I told the Australian people lies or untruths about Vietnam. We're very saddened by this news. He'll be greatly missed and greatly mourned. Mr Chipp had great hopes for Natasha Stott Despoja, but felt she came to the leader's role too young. I'll remember Don Chipp as a mate, as a friend, as a mentor, as a supporter. The Opposition says Don Chipp was a substantial figure who made a significant contribution. And so we are poorer as a nation for his passing. That he's a good old honest bastard who gave it his best shot - put that on my tombstone and I'm a happy man. Still to come - an Olympic champion jailed. And how new technology lets you call the shots at rock concerts. This program is captioned live. In a world first police in Victoria will soon have the power

to charge drivers who test positive to ecstasy. The new drug test - using a saliva sample - extends an already successful testing program for amphetamines and cannabis. We are the only place that has done this so far down the track to introduce this legislation and capacity which really does save lives. More than half the 300 Victorian drivers who tested positive to amphetamines in the past year had also used ecstasy. 18 months jail for disgraced cycling champ Gary Neiwand after admitting he stalked a former girlfriend. A court hearing the Olympic medallist had been diagnosed with depression and contemplated suicide. Gary Neiwand achieved glory on the cycling track, winning several world titles and Olympic silver. Off the track his activities have been far from glorious, admitting to stalking a one-time girlfriend. He repeatedly called her using a stolen mobile phone, contacted her mother

and sent explicit text messages to her employer between May and June this year. Neiwand pleaded guilty to the offences, his family and friends in court to hear the 39-year-old receive a maximum 18-month jail sentence. Chief Magistrate Ian Gray acknowledged Neiwand had been diagnosed with a major depressive illness, but with strong family support and treatment he believed the chances of rehabilitation were excellent. Nevertheless, he said the offences were serious and the sentence must reflect: Neiwand is already serving time for breaching an intervention order to stay away from ex-wife Catherine. Last year he was convicted of harassing her, claiming he'd urinated in her champagne glass. Neiwand will be eligible for parole in nine months. Nicole Strahan, Ten News. Soft drink giants have joined the fight against childhood obesity,

agreeing to include nutritional information on labels and remove some products from school canteens. But dietitians say it's not enough. Australia has one of the highest rates of childhood obesity with one in four children suffering from the deadly disease. It's that staggering statistic that is forcing many companies to rethink the way they do business. The major soft drink companies are joining forces to make their products more consumer-friendly. All drink labels will now contain additional nutritional information. Childhood obesity is a very important issue today and we recognise that. Cans and bottles will soon show how much energy, or kilojoules, each drink contains, as well as its percentage DI, or dietary intake, for an adult. Critics say the label isn't legible or easy to understand.

They do need to have very clear labels so that people can make some informed decisions, and little labels may not actually be good enough. While dieticians say this is a step in the right direction, they'd prefer primary school canteens stock only water and milk. Companies may also soon be banned from targeting children in its advertisements, and McDonald's has broadened its "healthier menu" option for children, introducing a Pasta Zoo McHappy Meal, but at 9g of fat it's only slightly better for you than a cheeseburger and Coke. Catherine Kennedy, Ten News. In a world first, music fans in Sydney will be given four hours to decide who'll entertain them in a concert tomorrow.

Four bands - Sneaky Sound System, Thirsty Merc, After the Fall and Evermore are at the mercy of fans who can vote at bigpond.com.au. or SMS 199 BANDS between 6:00 and 10:30 tomorrow morning. Whoever wins the popularity contest wins the right to perform. Day gigs are great. There's something cool about light. More of the concerts are planned. She's nude and pregnant and certainly bizarre - Britney Spears has been controversially plastered all over the Tokyo subway. Censors originally wanted her belly blacked out because the magazine ad was deemed too stimulating. But in the end they had the guts to publish. Sports Tonight now with Ryan Phelan.
