the players will join us,

Karmichael Hunt, the AFL boss the players will join us, including

Demetriou and we will take up the

enthusiasm for the side. As you can

see, it is happening around me. A 6-wicket haul from Shane Watson has limited the damage of Australia's appalling batting effort in the second Test against Pakistan at Headingley. Watson claimed career-best figures of 6/33 as Pakistan was dismissed for 258. The Aussies reached 2/136 in their second innings before bad light stopped play

and will resume tonight 34 runs in arrears.

Ricky Ponting passed 12,000 test runs on his way to an unbeaten 61. Hawthorn spearhead Lance Franklin is a certain starter for tonight's blockbuster against St Kilda

after overcoming an ankle injury. The Saints have a high-profile inclusion of their own with Nick Dal Santo returning from a back problem. Up north, the AFL's incoming Gold Coast outfit has confirmed

it will be known as the Suns. NRL recruit Karmichael Hunt was heavily involved in last night's launch. Matt Cooper returns from injury to bolster the St George-Illawarra backline for tonight's Round 20 NRL clash against the Gold Coast in Wollongong. The Titans are staring down the barrel of a fourth straight defeat. In tonight's other match Bulldogs youngster Jamal Idris is backing himself to blunt the attacking brilliance of Parramatta superstar Jarryd Hayne. Alberto Contador is in the box seat to win his second straight Tour de France despite being edged out by Andy Schleck overnight. The pair waged a 2-man war in stage 17

and while Schleck won the stage,

he was unable to eat into Contador's 8-second overall lead.

Earlier, Contador and the rest of the peloton had to dodge some wild sheep that ran onto the road.

Well, no such problems at Cockatoo

Island this morning where Grant is

with all your weather.

with all your weather? Yes, closing

off the week with a touch of class

today, my friends. We are at

Australia's largest and most

respected contemporary visual arts

exhibition. It is the 17th biennial

of Sydney, it is a wonderful

collection of Sydney locations,

chock-a-block full of Australian and

international visual arts. We are at

the centre piece of the festival

which has been running for a couple

of months here at Cockatoo Island.

What they have done to transform

what is an amazing facilities with

an extraordinary history of

shipbuilding, and a prison will blow

your mind. I love the Biennale.

Really? I am glad you are there. The

Biennale in terms of art takes you

on a journey. It is not art that you

look at, you experience it. We just

had an taste of it, you walk over

it, look through it. My first taste

of a chock-a-block of art, I am a

boy from the bush. I am looking for

an education. You are in for more

than an education, you in for a

treat. Have you been this year? Not

my list but I have been to previous

ones and I find they just expand had

the minds. Nat has been there. We

weeks ago with the kids

weeks ago with the kids from Circular Quay rr. Did see a special

treat and look at the forecast right

now, good morning. Sunrise weather for Beacon Lighting. Lamps sale is now on. For beautiful lamps, it has to be Beacon. Fine with some early frost in Canberra.

I am glad you are excited about this

morning. You can hold my hand and

walk me through it this morningy wi

part, you have got the scarf, the

dark, have you got a skivvy on

underneath? No, but I will put some

elbow patches on now you said that.

Perfect! If you

Perfect! If you can't be an art

critic, you should look like one,

that is what my old man used to say.

Thank you, Grant. Ahead, our All Star election panel gives its verdict on week one of the campaign.

Only four more to go. And soon, the great escape. The rare bird that made a run for it from an Aussie zoo.

Well, she was a mb of the family.

Move on. Okay. A South African couple has had an unforgettable holiday. By now, you've probably seen their photos. Paloma Werner and Ralph Mothes were sailing on their yacht when a 40 tonne whale jumped aboard. The creature thrashed around for a bit before it fell back into the ocean and swam away, unhurt. And amazingly, no-one on the boat was injured either. Overnight Paloma spoke to TV network ITN.

First of all, we didn't think it

would come so close, nothing, it

happened so quick that actually

nothing goes through your mind. The

first thing, once everything was

down and it had come to a

standstill, the noise and

everything, moth maulgt asked me

did, it haant taken on water, thank

God we have got a steel boat that

stopped it from cracking. When we

close our eyes and see the pictures,

you see the image of the whale

coming out, we are very lucky to be

alive. I don't think the whale had

any damage. We had, obviously, when

he fell up and slid back into the

water he rubbed against the

stanchens and the tow rail so we had

quite a few pieces of whale blubber

and barnacles on the boat but we

didn't see any bloodory anything.

Julia Gillard's planning a talkfest on climate change if she wins the election. 150 ordinary Aussies would get together after the election. They'd decide if a Labor Government goes ahead with an emissions trading scheme. A commission of experts would help them make their decision. Do we need a talk-fest on climate change? Or will it just be more hot air?

Would it ruin the ozone layer? No, I Would it ruin the ozone layer? No,

Would it ruin the ozone layer? No I

think it is a great idea. And

something that could be catching

too. Any difficult decision, get 150

Aussies together. Talk fest. To make

it for you! Bring the troops back

from Afghanistan or maybe

sustainable cities? You know, we

sort of vote our politicians in for

leadership and a bit of vision but

if they are not prepared to give it

to us, let's go back to us again and

get rid of government and

get rid of government and make Quentin Bryce just the head and we

have a whole bunch of committees on

everything we do. Great ideas. 150

here and there. There is a greet

Peter Cook movie, I have forgotten

it. If you know, e-mail it in. He

got elected by saying you the

popials will make the decisions. He

put a red flashing light on the top

of everyone's TV. So when big

decision it has been made, the light

would go off and you voted. Everyone

got the irirts with it but they

ended up making a dictator because

they got sick of making the

decisions. Look at 2020, every

bagged that and it didn't do him any

favours. It is ridiculous. He tried

it and he didn't get anywhere. All

that money Every hard decision that

you, may offend somebody, you get a

committee of 150 Australians and say

they make the decision. Run

Australia by committee. Programs

like ours, letters to the redder,

isn't that a talk fest? Wasn't it

one of the biggest criticisms

one of the biggest criticisms of Kevin Rudd. He wouldn't make a

decision, he backfliped on the big

five policies, everyone is sick of

it. We obviously don't think it is a

good idea. Let us know your views

and the name of the Eater Cook film

too. A proproposal for kids as young

as 12 to be taught to drive. 4-time Bathurst winner Allan Moffat is backing driving lessons in school. And he says we're leaving it too late to start kids behind the wheel. But is 12 the right age?

Very young. A dating site posting fake profiles.

A court's found the operator of RedHotPie

created almost 1,400 false profiles over four years. They were de-activated when the Competition Commisssion raised concerns. But it got us thinking about the little stories people tell to talk themselves up. What's the best example you've seen?

Or heard, not necessarily from a

dating site. Maybe one of those

glamour photos, like us, we get

shushed and made up and go home

shushed and made up and go home and it is different. I say I have got a

Roman nose. Kochie is very Roman. So

we would love to hear from you, job

description, did you emblish your CV

to get the gig. Coming up, does the government have a secret slush fund at its disposal for the election campaign? And the incredible story of a bird that's fallen in love with a helicopter.

That is dangerous. And unrequited. But next news, sport and weather. And this morning's first lucky Cash Cow winners.

Don't eat those! Congratulations to our first five winners: You've all won $1,000. To win your share of the money, you need to enter. Today's codeword is: Next hour, we'll call today's major $15,000 winner, so make sure you're watching.

Phil says Peter Cook's movie is

called 'Woops Apocalypse' he is our

film noir experts. Later, do you lock the doors even when you're at home? And do you need to?

Nope. Nor do I. And soon - the new debate over police tasers. But right now it's news time. Here's Nat with the 6:30 update. Good morning. A police officer has been stabbed in Port Melbourne this morning. The officer was off-duty at the time when he was stabbed in the back at a surf club. He's currently undergoing surgery. Six fire crews have been needed to bring a factory blaze in Sydney's south-west under control. The fire broke out in the Sefton business at around 2:00 this morning

with the building well alight by the time firefighters arrived. All persons have been accounted for and the building has been three-quarters saved. And a brand-new four-wheel drive has been set alight in Sydney's south-west overnight. The Honda CRV was parked underneath the owner's unit in Canley Vale. Julia Gillard and Tony Abbott will resume election campaigning this morning. The PM is set to unveil Labor's new climate change policy today with the public to decide the fate of an emissions trading scheme. But the election spotlight is back on Kevin Rudd with revelations he showed a disregard for national security. The Prime Minister starts in Brisbane with climate change on her agenda. It's been revealed she's planning a citizens' assembly who'll take a year to assess the government's plans for an emissions trading scheme. Julia Gillard is also under pressure to explain an extra billion dollars in the budget and whether it's an election slush fund. The money comes from a first home buyers deposit scheme. And Kevin Rudd has some explaining to do with revelations his young chief of staff, Alistair Jordan, stood in for him at national security meetings. I would expect ministers wouldn't want to be wasting their time, I would expect ministers would take this committee very seriously. Tony Abbott is in Perth today, no doubt keen to exploit a threat by small miners to resume their campaign against the re-modelled mining tax. A campaign could realistically be rolled out as soon as the weekend. Disendorsed Labor MP Belinda Neal

is expected to contest the federal election as an Independent. Ms Neal was dumped earlier this year by the ALP

in a pre-selection vote for her seat of Robertson on the New South Wales Central Coast. Signs have reportedly been commissioned saying "Belinda Neal, Independent for Robertson". Ms Neal fell out of favour with Labor after the Iguana-gate scandal in 2008. A Victorian father faces spending the rest of his life behind bars after being found guilty for a second time of murdering his three young sons. A Supreme Court jury took three days to find Robert Farquharson guilty of driving his sons into a dam on Father's Day five years ago. Farquharson trembled and mouthed the word "no"

as the verdict was read out. He maintains he blacked out behind the wheel after a coughing fit. He'll be sentenced at a later date.

night, shortly, Karmichael Hunt and

the rest of the players will join

us, Andrew Demetriou the boss of the

AFL and Guy McKenna too. But first: Another brilliant bowling effort from Shane Watson kept Australia in the contest on day two of the second test against Pakistan at Headingley. The all-rounder claimed career-best figures of 6/33 to restrict Pakistan's first innings to 258. Australia finished the day at 2/136 in its second innings and still trails by 34 runs.

Meantime, Sri Lankan legend Muttiah Muralitharan has ended his prolific career in style, claiming his 800th wicket with his final ball in test cricket. Sri Lanka thumped India by 10 wickets.

( applause) well done,

Murallitharan. He is going to

baseball next, isn't he? Kochie,

let's leave it. The next team to enter the AFL has a new name - the Gold Coast Suns. The league's 17th team announced its arrival on the Australian sporting scene overnight with an official launch at Southport. Round 17 of the AFL kicks off tonight with Lance Franklin returning to the Hawthorn line-up to take on St Kilda. Nick Dal Santo is back for the Saints. Bulldogs backrower Jamal Idris has nominated himself as the man to shut down Parramatta superstar Jarryd Hayne in tonight's grudge match at ANZ Stadium. In Wollongong, the Dragons welcome back Matt Cooper from injury for their clash with the Gold Coast. A loss at Jubilee Stadium will see the Titans drop out of the top eight for the first time this season.

exhibitions on a size and scale I

which depicts a car exploding in

nine different sequences. It is the

process of the explosion. He was

responsible for designing the

fireworks for the Beijing Games

fireworks for the Beijing Games so it is where the guy is coming from.

It is a statement about the beauty

and horror of destruction and as he

also says, about terrorism and our

current war against it. But I don't

know about you, I haven't seen

anything of this size or scale.

Maybe it is a statement on the

quality of drivers on Sydney's

roads. It is a very powerful

statement, how lethal a car can be

in today's modern society. It sorts

of transports you there. But how

sometimes there is beauty in that

lethalness, if you like. The various

stages of destruction, it doesn't

always have to be ugly, does it? No,

no, not at all. I am on your wave

lengths. I must say I have never

seen the beauty in the destruction of... seen the beauty in the destruction

of.... Cars. Seeing it now? See,

that's the contrast of life, the

horror, the, it is all about the

contrast. Hmm, yes, it is. It is a

stark contrast. It is very strong,

it speaks to you on lot of levels,

this is one of 50 exhibits here

this is one of 50 exhibits here at Cockatoo Island and we will showio

more after the weather. Sunrise weather for Beacon Lighting. Lamps sale is now on. For beautiful lamps it has to be Beacon. Southerly winds are causing showers on the New South Wales coast and light showers in southern Victoria. A high is keeping the southern inland mostly clear while maintaining, gusty south-easterlies across the north. Mostly fine with a possible shower in Brisbane. Possible showers over the weekend. And rain should continue for the start of next week. Fine with some early frost in Canberra. A possible afternoon shower on Sunday.

What I like about it? Because, you

know, when I say culture, I

pronounce it Culchha. It has got

cars in it so I love it. It is free,

come over here any time, the ferries

are free, the access is free, it

will blow your mind. Okay. Thank you

very much. Nat said there is

spectacular. I really liked that

one. The rest of it is a little on

the strange side if you are not an

art aficionado. You have to think

deeper. Joke of the day, Tony

Abbott, Joe Hockey and Julie Bishop

are on an executive flight to

TVee. Give it a two. I am not bias,

they are equally as bad as each

other. Greens on Monday to even it

up. A Bob Brown one. That gives me lots of latitude. Soon, are female voters turning away from Tony Abbott? But next, the debate over shotgun tasers for police.

Hot a beautiful moon this morning.

-- what a beautiful moon, not just

in Sydney, all around the country,

we get the same one. Just thought

that through. Showers and 17 today.

If I said that. I did pick it up. It can hit a target from 100 metres away and strikes with a 20-second shock. The supercharged weapon is called a shotgun taser and it's being trialled by police in Western Australia. But should police be allowed to have new high-powered tasers? And what are the medical consequences of its use? Let's ask Sunrise GP Dr Ginni Mansberg. Ginni, this new taser has a shock four times as long as a regular taser.

That's got to be bad for your

health? I don't think so, there has

been so many studies done on this,

been so many studies done on this, I would be surprised. Not

industry-funded but independent

research, on universities, much

higher than a standard taizer and

the shot gun tasers and so far they

are looking really, really safe.

They do definitely, in 50 per cent

of cases cause some temporary

of cases cause some temporary change in the hearth rhythm but it doesn't

seem to be fatal and it reverts

back. It

back. It is a stun. What does it do,

if it is a 50,000 volts, so the

shock, what does it? It stops you?

Do you collapse? Yes. Have you ever

kind of zapped yourself with a

toaster that has gone bad. It gives

you a freakout and you get stunned,

if it is higher voltage it will make

you fall to the floor and it aloz

police to close distances and put

handcuffs on you, the highest

voltage will change the heart. What

if you have a Dickie hicker? Heart

problems or an implant. That is

obviously of some concern. Because

we don't always know whether people

have a problem with their heart.

Just because they are young, doesn't

necessarily preclude it. But it does

still look fairly safe. We can't put

our heads in a block, because you

can't take a whole lot of people

with heart problems and say are you

happy to line-up and be shot with a

taser but it looks safe. I

taser but it looks safe. I know what

I would want my kid shot with

I would want my kid shot with if they were in a tricky situation,

high on ice or psychosis. I would

hope the police would pull out taser

on my child, rather than a gun or

even a batten. Good point, thank

you, Ginni, good to see you. It's not often that birds stick their beaks into Adelaide's affairs. But that's been happening this week, on two fronts. A macaw was on the loose after escaping from the zoo. And a magpie is in love with a helicopter. For more we're joined by Sunrise correspondent Amanda Bachmann. Good morning. Firstly, the escaped macaw is back at the zoo. How did they get him?

Kochie, it was basically patience

and persistence. Tambo the macaw was

doing free-flight training at the

zoo on Wednesday had he was startled

by a group of school children,

couldn't find his keeper and got

into tree. He stayed in the zoo for

a few hours but then began a merry

chase. He went from tree to tree,

within the zoo, being pursued by

keep sqrz a media pack the whole

lower branch where he spotted his

keeper. By this stage he was hungry,

it had been more than 24 hours, he

was returned safely to the keeper

and the zoo. The other one is a

love-struck magpie causing trouble

at the airport? Yes, it is crazy,

they dubbed him Evan, he has a thing

for helicopters at the end of the

runway. He is a Murray mag

runway. He is a Murray magpie. They

don't know if he is seeing his own

reflection and in love or trying to

intimidate the helicopters because

they are shiny. He knows when to

stay away but it means a lot of

cleaning up because there is a lot

of mess left. Big weekend in

Adelaide? The show down, I know you

are a Crows fan so I chucked into

one of the Crows doughnuts that

Balfour sent over. I am not allowed

tough. I am the other way, the Crows

I am fairly confident the Crows will

win. Throw in a packet of Fruit

The start of the last season when

Yes, it is a victory for Brad and

Angelina and those who love

Angelina and those who love them, and the haters, the terrible

biographer that was writing the

sleazy book about them. I love it

when we get proof, they are

together, wonderful, in love,

superpeople. They had a law suit

against the British tabloid,

against the British tabloid, 'News of the World'. They claimed the

couple had spoken to a divorce

Now the British tabloid is going

Now the British tabloid is going to have to print a public apology and

going to have to donate an

victory for them. And the fact they

are still together. And we are

hearing Robert Pattinson's partner

is someone who can cook? Yes, he has

revealed in a new interview all he

can manage to feed himself is toast.

He actually has a catering service

that makes preprepared meals and

deliver them to his house, he just

has to heat them up. Ladies, if you

have got Rob on your mind, work on

your cooking skills and you can find

a place through his stomach to his

Gillard's climate change Paul l

policy today, she is suggesting 150

people picked from all walks of life

to determine her policy. If they

don't like it, it will be dropped, " don't like it, it will be dropped, don't like it, it will be dropped David, "

David, "Here is thought, release

David, "Here is thought, release it to be decided by voters on election

day, not 150 hand picked puppets", day, not 150 hand picked puppets."

Come on David, where is your

imagination? I think we should have

a jury system for politics, the

government comes and sort of

convinces a committee of jurors and

all the experts and they decide.

Isn't that what they are meant to do

for the lection? As David and Nat

said, to convince us this way or

that way. Sorry, Phil, way off beam,

the Peter Cook movie where he gives

the decision to the whole popials by

reckon 'Woops Apocalypse' is a

better name. A lot of people

suggesting getting kids to drive at

an early age is good. 12? Not

necessarily 12 but younger and at

school. Not giving them their

licence at 12? No, just learning to

deal with a big, heavy car. Let us

know what you think. Still to come

on Sunrise this morning. The PM proposes a summit to tackle climate change. But do we really need another conference to talk about emissions trading? Living in fear. Or living in denial? They've got the security doors here, but they're not using them.

and the front door is wide open. Hello, anyone home? MAN: Come in. Just how secure is your home? And Kylie Minogue. The pop princess drops in on an old friend. Right across Australia, this is Sunrise on Seven. Now, live from Brekky Central, here's Kochie and Mel.

If you are just waking up this

Friday morning, good morning, thank

you for joining us. Now the news

with Nat. The environment will take centre stage on the election trail today with the Prime Minister to unveil her climate change policy. Reporter Jodie Speers is travelling with Ms Gillard in Brisbane. Good morning, Jodie.

The PM's set to announce a citizens assembly on an emissions trading scheme - is that just a delay tactic?

Good morning, Nat, it could

certainly be seen that way but Julia

Gillard said she can't bring in an

ETS without community consensus. It

brings back memories of Kevin Rudd's

2020 summit after he was elected. In

this case, 150 ordinary

this case, 150 ordinary citizens would be picked through the

electoral role to take part and

spend a year hearing about the ETS

and at the

and at the end of it, if they didn't

think it was warranted orimator it

wouldn't be brought in. She will

announce it at the Universesy tae of

Queensland today along with energy

renewable measures. She will face

questions about a potential slush

fund uncovered by Seven News last

night? Yes, it was unveiled by our

political guru Mark Riley last night

after a FOI request. He found $ after a FOI request. He found $1

billion is sitting in the

government's bank account after the

first home savers scheme which was

talked up, arch it was first

announced. But documents have found

no-one has used it. There is all the

money left over and money left over and there are

questions whether it will be used as

a slush fund in marginal seats this

election. Thank you, Jodi. An off-duty police officer has been stabbed in Port Melbourne. The male officer, in his 40s, was knifed in his shoulder blade at the Sandridge Life Saving Club carpark at around 3:00 this morning. He's recovering in the Alfred Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Police are still trying to work out what caused the attack. The male attacker is described as having a European accent and wearing a blue hooded jacket. Six fire crews have been needed to bring a factory blaze in Sydney's south-west under control. The fire broke out in the Sefton business at around 2:00 this morning with the building well alight by the time firefighters arrived. All persons have been accounted for, and the building has been three-quarters saved. And a townhouse in Brisbane's south-west will have to be demolished after fire ripped through it overnight. The blaze broke out at the Brookwater property at around 10:00. No-one was home at the time and firefighters think it may have started in a car parked in the garage. And Arnold Schwarzenegger has made light of Mel Gibson's latest scandal.

The California Governor was hosting a public event when he made fun of Mel Gibson and his abusive phone rants. The good new is that BP has contained the oil leak, that is good news. The bad news is that nobody has figured out how to contain Mel Gibson. Arnie also asked the audience to turn off their phones in case Mad Mel tried to call.

The Aussie dollar has been strong

the last couple of gays. -- last

couple of days. Time for sport.

Where else would you want to base an

AFL team than the Gold Coast? We

launched the Suns, we looked at the

jumpers. But first. A 6-wicket haul from Shane Watson has revitalised Australia in the second Test against Pakistan at Headingley. Watson claimed career-best figures of 6/33 as Pakistan was dismissed for 258. The Aussies reached 2/136 in their second innings before bad light stopped play and will resume tonight 34 runs in arrears. Ricky Ponting passed 12,000 test runs on his way to an unbeaten 61. Hawthorn spearhead Lance Franklin is a certain starter for tonight's blockbuster against St Kilda after overcoming an ankle injury. The Saints have a high-profile inclusion of their own with Nick Dal Santo returning from a back problem.

Up north, the AFL's incoming Gold Coast outfit has confirmed it will be known as the Suns. NRL recruit Karmichael Hunt was heavily involved in last night's launch. He'll join us live, in 10 minutes. Matt Cooper returns from injury to bolster the St George-Illawarra backline for tonight's Round 20 NRL clash against the Gold Coast in Wollongong. The Titans are staring down the barrel of a fourth straight defeat. In tonight's other match - a Jarryd Hayne-inspired Parramatta side will be chasing its third straight win against the Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium. Alberto Contador is in the box seat to win his second straight Tour de France despite being edged out by Andy Schleck overnight. The pair waged a 2-man war in stage 17 and while Schleck won the stage, he was unable to eat into Contador's 8-second overall lead.

Earlier, the peloton had to dodge some wild sheep that ran onto the road.

You don't see that every day. Here

on the Gold Coast, the locals are

really embracing their new side. You

can see why, the gear is out, the

supporters are in the gear, these

are the official jumpers for

are the official jumpers for the Gold Coast side. Mark Loch, this is

the jumper? It symbolises

the jumper? It symbolises heritage from the club for the last couple of

years. Keeping it simple. AFL has

been on the coast for a long time.

We have got strong clubs here? Yes,

the South Port Sharks and

Broadbeach. That is the away jumper,

charmy Dickson? Yes, the wave for

the Gold Coast here, so we have a

bit of Gold Coast to take away when

we play away. Charlie, the

excitement around it for you guys

and last night was a highlight, it

is a great thing to be involved

is a great thing to be involved in from the players' point of view?

Yes, last night to finally have the

name and injersey is unreal. It is

really good to see where we have

come from and to have that, you

know, the Gold Coast proper name and

everything now. It is really good.

The Suns, bring it on. That is the

clash strip. It is all exciteing the

players are happy with the jumpers

and the song and everything? Yes,

definitely. It is all good. I think

we should have a bit of the song, to

get a feel for the club, because

they have done a great job of the

song, it is a ripper. We will sing

it as a group later on but right

now, Grant has the weather

now, Grant has the weather at Cockatoo Island. Hello grant! All

yours. Here we are. They were

singing, we left them. Well done, it

sounds like quite a party up there,

well done, young man. We are

well done, young man. We are at Cockatoo Island, we are celebrating

Australia's most visual and large

arts show. Ponder this with me, this

piece is called the jumping castle

war memorial. What it wanders is

ceremony and circus. Where is the

line? This is done by an indigenous

artist, in the

artist, in the traditional

Wurundjeri pattern and design. It

represents a war memorial, with the

skulls on the side, to represent the

solemn atmosphere of sacred sites

and memorials, like a tribute to the

dislocated and forgotten people in

history. What he is asking you is...

Uh-huh. Is culture a toy? Should you

be jumping, if you like, on culture,

think Uluru here, thinkal rue, what

if... ,

if... Uh-huh. What if it was your

war memorial, would you jump on

that? That is a very good point.

That is exactly the point we made

when that stupid stripper from

Germany strip said off on the top of

Uluru which I thought was incredibly

disrespectful. That sums up the

issue, this piece of art. He has

done it in a jumping castle,

done it in a jumping castle, it speaks to you simply but so

profoundly deep. Sunrise weather for Beacon Lighting. Lamps sale is now on. For beautiful lamps it has to be Beacon. Mostly fine with possible showers in Maroochydore.

Just ten days left to experience

these different pieces, which makes

you think quite differently about

things we have taken for granted

over the years. Like that does. I

can remember my mum having wappaper

like that one, Grant. -- wallpaper

like that. It speaks to us in

different ways. I am not as deep as

you, Grant. We've been told there's not a lot of money to splash around

this election campaign. But does the government actually have $1 billion at its disposal? A Seven News freedom of information investigation has found a great pool of unspent cash. It's in the First Home Savers Scheme, which hardly anyone has used. So is this going to turn into a government slush fund? It's over to our political All Stars - key Labor strategist, Bruce Hawker, former Democrats leader, Natasha Stott Despoja and former Coalition minister, Mal Brough. Good morning to you all. Bruce, based on this extra billion, should we expect some big-picture promises?

Well, Mel I hate to rain on the

parade but the budget for last year

actually made adjustments to take

into account the fact the first home

savers account wasn't being well

subscribed so there isn't $ subscribed so there isn't $1 billion

out there to play with. The

out there to play with. The reason it was undersubscribed it was

introduced just before the big

global melt down in 2008 and the

government introduced another fund,

a boost for home buyers which people

really rush to, the one where you could get $

could get $21,000 if you bought new home or $

home or $14,000, if you bought a

home that was built. There is no $ home that was built. There is no $1

billion rb out there, it has been

accounted for in the budget. It was

hardly rushed for, I understand

hardly rushed for, I understand 95 per cent of it was undersubscribed.

But the PM is proposing a sum td to

tackle climate change, whether they

can spend some of the mun a e I

don't know, but what is your view on

having the talk fest and 150 sitting

round a table and discussing climate

change and whether it becomes a

policy It is a rerun of the early

days of Kevin Rudd. I look at the

talk of infrastructure needs of the

western suburbs, and it is a picture

of we emphathise. The big talk fest,

that Kevin Rudd organised with all

the ideas and now we will have

another talk fest. Ift change is

really the -- climate change is

really the number one issue, of our

time, surely this government and

time, surely this government and the Prime Minister knows what she wants

to do. I don't think it is time to

be getting out there, just having

another talk fest. If you believe in

it, let's put policies before the

Australian people in the next couple

of days, let them digest them and

vote on them. Natasha, the Prime

Minister is saying she won't bring

in policy without community

consensus. Is it not what the

election is about? Know the policies

in advance and go and vote for the

party that has the policies we most

want? Indeed and I

want? Indeed and I think on the

issue of clime change and how we

address greenhouse gas emissions,

the public is looking for a

solution, and looking for action

from both of the major parties. It

seems like a wonderful excuse to put

off, yet again, making a decision

and coming up with targets. It is

what we want to see on the table. We

want to hear what the government

stands for. As much as I love dlib

rtdive democracy and the

rtdive democracy and the opportunity to be be included, I would like to

hear whaument Prime Minister has in

mind for climate change. To have 150

sitting around a table, is it why we

elect politicians? We want nem to

sitd around and debate it. We also

want them to consult with the

community. It was a vexed issue,

there was a long contention over a

period of time when the government

first looked to introduce an

emissions trading scheme. There was

confusion there and I confusion there and I think Julia

Gillard is saying we need to talk to

the community next year about how to

best tackle climate change. We

thought the conversation had

happened. Are you saying there

wasn't enough consul ititation the

first time around? I don't think the

public understood all the

implications of an emissions trading

scheme. The was a lot of

misinformation from the opposition.

We had Tony Abbott describing it in

very florid terms of climate change

and denied its existence. We have to

go out post Malcolm Turnbull, who

was a supporter on climate change

and have a community discussion. I

don't think it is a bad thing. We

need to build consensus because

frankly, it wasn't

frankly, it wasn't there before and

is still not there because the government is still not there because the

opposition has a strong antischeme

under Tony Abbott. But also,

under Tony Abbott. But also, there is a new leadership poll out with a twist. An exclusive Seven News Morgan poll asks who should lead Labor and the Coalition. Julia Gillard is preferred over Kevin Rudd. But voters would rather see Malcolm Turnbull leading the Coalition instead of Tony Abbott. Mal, do you think Mr Turnbull would give the Coalition a better chance in the campaign?

Mel, it is a bit of a waste of time,

quite frankly, no disrespect to

Seven. We have the two people who

are flunting up on election day,

they are Abbott and Gillard. Who

they are Abbott and Gillard. Who may have been there doesn't matter. I

was saying to a couple of people

was saying to a couple of people off screen earlier, Julia Gillard, what

do we know about her? She will be

the first Prime Minister, other

the first Prime Minister, other than Kevin Rudd since the war that hasn't

been in the public arena for 20

years. People do have views on Tony

Abbott and not all are positive.

Some people don't like some of his

views. But what do we know

views. But what do we know about Julia Gillard and when Australia got

to know Kevin Rudd, they very

quickly made their mind up they

didn't like him. I am just hoping we

don't have another repeat of that by

having someone we don't know there.

How quickly do we get to know Julia

Gillard and what she stands for

instead of putting the issues off

until after the election. Natasha,

do you think women are turning away

from Tony Abbott and

from Tony Abbott and supporting Julia Gillard? Indeed, I think it is

really interesting when you look at

that particular survey, those

polling figures also show quite a

difference between there is a gender

break down, quite a difference

between the Prime Minister's support

for women as opposed to men. She is

much more likely to be supported by

women. Similarly, you know, the

opposition leader, Tony Abbott does

have a woman problem. That is partly

because I think what we have known

about Tony Abbott, what people are

aware of, particularly women, relate

to some of his, you know, very

conservative views he holds on

issues that affect women from

reproductive rights right through to

a gamut of issues. It is hurting the

Liberal party. Mal is right, we

might not know what the Prime

Minister stands for, especially on

greenhouse gas emissions today but

at the same time, women are more

likely to be attracted to her and

her party which is a problem for the

opposition. Which is why we want to

hear about it now, not post

election. It is fascinating. Thank

you for your time this morning. Pleasure. Everyone likes to think they're safe in their own home. But recently we've seen some horrifying stories on the news. Just this week a Sydney teenager was watching TV in her lounge when she saw an intruder behind her in the mirror. Police are now urging people to lock their doors when they are home but just how many people are heeding that advice? We sent Sunrise correspondent Michelle Tapper to find out. They've got the security doors here but they're not using them. And the front door is wide open. Hello, anyone home? MAN: Come in. Just wondering why have you left your front door open? I usually feed the birds in the morning.

And they don't turn up first thing

they hop in demanding a feed. What

would you do if I was a robber here saying, "

saying, "Give me all you got, give

me your money", I'd say, " me your money", I'd say, "Do me a

favour and take half of it." What

would you do if you fake p came face

to face with an intruder in your

house? I suppose it is how big he

is. Look at this, it is inviting us

in. When someone is home, we have

them open but when we go out, we

shut them. Do you always leave your

door unlocked? Yes, I do. I

door unlocked? Yes, I do. I am Michelle Tapper from Sunrise, why

leave your door unlocked. I never

think otherwise, it is usually

actually open. Are you worried about

people entering your home.

people entering your home? Not

during the day, not really, it is a

pretty safe neighbourhood. I guess

because I have a dog I feel a bit

safer. He just licked my foot, that

dog. I don't think he is much of a

guard dog? True. Gee, Michelle is

pretty brave, isn't For more we're joined by Andrew Brideson from Neighbourhood Watch. Good morning. Are people doing enough to ensure they are safe at home?

I don't think they are. From what we

have just seen I think people take

their security for granted.

Neighbourhood Watch Victoria is

about people taking responsibility

for their safety. One of the

messages I would like to get across

today, don't take your home security

for granted. Take some steps to

ensure that your home is safe.

Probably one of the most simplest

things is making sure that your door

is locked during the day. Now, of

course, we don't want to live in

fear and live in a fortress, we like

to live in our nairkds and stuff

like that. Of course. What can you

do, to simple things apart from

locking your front door, to make

sure you are okay? Well, I think as

a first step people need to do a

home security audit. Now, that means

probably getting a friend or

relative or a neighbour and just

going through your home from front

fence to the back fence, from the

front door, checking the side

windows etc. And having a look at

what may happen at your house,

security-wise, and taking note of

where you can improve your security.

It really only takes about if I ever

minutes to do a home security audit.

And to help people do this, on our

Neighbourhood Watch Web site we have

got a lot of information there, we

have got brochures which people can

down load and we have also got a

virtual house where people can

actually assist themselves to do an

audit. I recommend people go to the neighbourhoodwatchVictoria web site.

That's a great idea. We will put the

link there to make it easier and

rent out Michelle Tapper to give it

the once over. That is

the once over. That is terrific

advice. Thanks, David, now here is

Beretts on the Gold Coast. Talking sport is brought to you by the new Telstra T-Box, Internet entertainment direct to your TV. The Gold Coast AFL team finally has a name - the Suns - and a new jumper and a great team song. Joining me now is AFL boss Andrew Demetriou. And high-profile Suns recruit, former rugby league player Karmichael Hunt. Andrew, how are the plans for the Gold Coast team

You have got to be excited about

last night, Andrew, for you to come

and see the support the club has ral

aedz, 6,000-odd membersise

incredible? It was a fantastic

night, the atmosphere in the room

was tremendous, when they unveiled

the song and the nickname and the

colours, the crowd went wild. To get

7,000 members signed up already at

the test mentd to the club. How is

it for you, Karmichael? I am going

well in terms of the footy side of

things, but to be a part of

something so special, you know, a

club that's just developing its

identity and moving towards

identity and moving towards debuting in the AFL next year. It is exciting

and I am happy to be a part of it.

Adrian, the stadium up here is a big

part of it. Update, a 25,000-seat

stadium? Yes, I have got to thank

the Queensland government and

the Queensland government and the Gold Coast City Council and the

federal government, it will be on

budget and online. When do we know

it will be online for? Which round?
