(whistles) I think it went something

like that but I am not game to try

it right now, too close. Too close.

That was one of the funniest moments

we have had on this program.

That was a beauty.

So funny. Do you want to share with

anyone who wasn't there.

We whistled the horse and it was

two. We will play it at 7. two. We will play it at 7.30. Coming up - what's happened to good old customer service? We'll try to find out. Then, motor racing history. The roar of Formula One comes to Mt Panorama. And, breaching the ceasefire. The disturbing video from Libya showing civilians under attack. We're live to the trouble zone next on Sunrise.

When we need a car, we call Redspot car rentals. No funny business, just serious car rentals with no hidden extras. To Libya now, where there are claims forces loyal to Colonel Gaddafi continue to breach a ceasefire targeting unarmed civilians. A YouTube clip reportedly filmed in the rebel-held town of Misrata on Monday shows people armed with only mobile phones being attacked. (people talk and yell) (people talk and yell). (explosion)

(people talk and yell). (explosion). Seven News reporter Robert Ovadia is in Tunisia, on the Libyan border. Rob, good morning. There's been a setback overnight for coalition forces after a US fighter jet crashed in rebel-held country. What more can you tell us?

Yes, those two airman, the pilot and

his crewmen were extremely fortunate

not just to have survived the crash

which at this early stage is being

blamed on mechanical failure, but

where they ejected to makes them

lucky, the strike eagle jet, F 15

crashed near Benghazi, the second

largest city east of Tripoli and a

rebel strong hold, the main point of

resist taons Gaddafi's rule. The

citizens there would have welcomed

the American airmen with open arms.

In other parts of the country, the

welcome would have been considerably

more hostile, in places like

Misrata, up to 40 people have been

killed there in recent days. The

Libya government claims it liberated

the city fours ago and were hunting

terrorists, those who want the

government gone. They say operation

dawn is not doing enough to help,

but without the sanctions of the

ground troops, without the United

Nations sanction there is not enough

it to be done. Dozens of

it to be done. Dozens of civilians have been killed, mostly women and

children with hospitals filling with

innocent victims but when foreign

media have asked for evidence of

civilian casualties, they have been

routinely denied. The United States

has led the military intervention,

supported strongly by Britain and

France but America is looking to

hand over to NATO and trying to get

other Arab nations more strongly

involved, the united Arab Emirates

and Saudi Arabia need more control

and it would send a strong

diplomatic message it is not just a

number of western countries invading Libya. Still to come - why customers are getting a bad deal in shops when it comes to service. Then, searching for Declan. The new video released to help find the missing teen. But next, the other way to make a hole in one. Come on...get in. Yes! (ALL CHEER)

We are looking for lots of space.

Lots of space for lots of kids. A big kitchen. What we've got is this little plan and I want to run it past you - just a few of the things that we need to talk about.

Private school, obviously. But private school is SO expensive. No, forget private school. I've got it all mapped out, yeah?

What's making news brought to you by Beacon Lighting. Be green and beat rising electricity costs during Beacon Lighting's Energy Saving Sale - now on.

Going viral today, some guys from Perth. You've probably seen them before on Seven. They've decided to switch from throwing basketball long shots to sinking a hole in one. This is a par 3 at the Collier Park Golf Course. It's 104 metres. Their mission is to throw the golfball from the tee into the cup.

The guys call themselves How Ridiculous. Their 'baskets' are already a YouTube hit and they urge people clicking on their clips

to donate the to charity Compassion. A worthy cause, for some wonderful talent.

There you go. 104 metres.

That is a pretty good arm. Absolutely. Also being viewed online - comments from Coalition frontbencher Christopher Pyne. He got angry in parliament when the PM, Julia Gillard, asked him about belonging to a party led by a climate change denier. Take a look.

We all know, we all know the

connotation that the Prime Minister

is trying to bring about by using

the word." Denier." We know she is

trying to allude to the Holocaust,

it is offensive and it must stop! Is the word 'denier' associated with those who don't believe the holocaust happened during World War II?

, are you all a little?

No, I think they are stretching,

everyone knows the term but they are

completely stretching it the speaker,

the speaker, Harry Jenkins said, " the speaker, Harry Jenkins said,

"Guys, pull your head." "Guys, pull your head in."

Christopher Pine is a bit of a prat sometimes.

I was going to use the word prat.

Does that word refer to something else.

Listen to Question, Time, I am a bit

of a prat for listening to question

time but you feel like saying, " time but you feel like saying, "Just time but you feel like saying, "Just sit down and shut up."

They are wasting time on ridiculous things.

They are the only ones who care

about the point scoring, none of us care about it. Good point. Also most viewed online is the Brisbane hotel with a floor just for women. The fifth floor of the Portal Hotel even has women-only staff. It started out for business travellers but now attracts fashion events, hen's nights and pre-wedding parties. And pampering is a top priority. There's a pamper bar full or natural products,

a straightening iron, chocolates and wine. So what do you think?

How ridiculous. How sexist is this?

If there was a bloke' only floor.

There are blokes' only clubs. The

Australia club here in Sydney. Contourers Women's Gim.

Men's days, and women's days at

certain sporting clubs, is it a big deal.

Blokes, let's fight back, what would

be on a bloke's floor.

A lot of empty beer cans.

Should there be a shed at the end of

the corridor we can all go and tool

up, sort of thing.

You have never tooled up in your life!

Better on the Better on the women's only floor for you.

Instead of the little bottle of

water, is there a VB.

For business travellers, as the

father of three daughters, if they

went to a country that was very

unfamiliar, would you feel they were

a little safer? Got him! What?

I don't know know, is safety part of it?

Security is an issue.

Women who travel alone for business and they and they feel more comfortable. Which is

Which iss stat, 40% of women are business travellers.

They want peace and quiet.

Have they lost their way from the

kitchen. Joke, joke!

You are on your own.

Just stirring the pot. Really? Finally making news, the man questioned by police for taking a vacuum cleaner from a pile of rubbish out on the footpath for a clean-up. Police stopped the man from Lilydale, in Victoria, because they thought he'd stolen the cleaner. Apparently, the officers were working on the idea that when junk is on the kerb it becomes council property. But commonsense prevailed. Senior police looked into it and ruled that there's a community expectation that once something is on the nature strip it's up for grabs. What have you picked up from a clean-up?

The quickest you have seen something

go. I put something out once and

within 10 minutes.

I was taking out an old stereo and

speakers, I took the stereo up, by

the time I wept down the drive to

bring the speakers, the stereo had gone. Did you call, "

Did you call, "Hang on, I got more Did you call, "Hang on, I got more."

I thought the council delayed for a

couple of days so everyone takes it

and they don't have to pick up as much.

Tell us the best thing you have

picked off the curb, a treasure. Just ahead - do kids really need vitamins? The popular foods that will give them the same nutritional boost. Then, start your engines. It's Formula One versus the V8s at Mount Panorama. But next, news and sport plus Grant's weather.

You're watching Sunrise, the show giving away free flights every day in March.

VOICEOVER: Only Whiskas has Vita-Bites, with calcium for strong teeth and bones plus omega-3 and -6 for healthy skin and fur, all in a deliciously creamy centre locked in a crunchy coating. (PURRS) That'd be right. My cat loves Whiskas, and I love my cat. We are looking for lots of space. Lots of space for lots of kids. A big kitchen. What we've got is this little plan and I want to run it past you - just a few of the things that we need to talk about. Private school, obviously. But private school is SO expensive.

A long time looking at the... Westpac. Hi. Steve Whan, your local MP for Monaro. It's been an honour to represent our community. Whether it's securing record road-funding, upgrading our schools or building new hospitals, we've achieved it together as a community.

That's why I'm asking for your support again, because regardless of what happens in Sydney, I'm determined to make sure that we keep getting our fair share. Good morning. 300 campers trapped by floodwaters in northern Victoria have been moved to higher ground. Torrential rain and thunderstorms are battering the Gippsland region. Nearby, at Moe, three people had to be rescued after trying to drive through rising waters as the Princes Highway quickly flooded. Just driving along and all of a sudden there was a river on the freeway. The SES has responded to 60 call-outs from people in the area. Greens Leader Bob Brown has denied suggestions he strongarmed Julia Gillard into the carbon tax. The Prime Minister has claimed she was forced into the tax because she's leading a minority government. I've been into no committee meetings with a thumbscrew, I can tell you. Senator Brown says a new Galaxy Poll shows 60% of Australians want big polluters to pay for their CO2 emissions. Immigration Minister Chris Bowen has admitted a number of detainees are still missing on Christmas Island. Up to 170 detainees broke out of the detention centre in two separate escapes during last week's unrest. The Minister says Federal Police claims they'd rounded everyone up were wrong. It's a very small number - we're talking one or two. That's my advice, is the discrepancy that's been established. And 151 asylum seekers intercepted at sea last week arrived in Broome last night. The Berlin Zoo says celebrity polar bear Knut may have died from a form of brain damage.

Initial results show significant changes in his brain just before he passed away. So far doctors haven't found damage to any other organs. The zoo says results of further testing will take several days. The 4-year-old polar bear died on Saturday afternoon after turning around several times and falling into the water in his enclosure.

Singer Chris Brown has had a violent outburst at a TV studio after being questioned

about assaulting former girlfriend Rihanna. Security had to be called to the 'Good Morning America' studio after he smashed a dressing room window and confronted a producer before storming out shirtless. Brown was promoting his new album. Even the judge said afterwards that you've served your time. And, moving on, how have you been able to. I've been focused on this album. So definitely this album is what I want people to talk about, not the tough stuff that happened two years ago. Brown is on five years' probation after being found guilty of giving Rihanna a black eye in 2009. In finance news:

The anonymous Cricket Australia official who leaked information about the potential axing of skipper Ricky Ponting has been labelled gutless and irresponsible. The Australian Cricketers' Association is fuming the comments were made public so close to tomorrow night's World Cup quarterfinal against India. As always, the Aussies have leapt to their skipper's defence. From my point of view, I hope that's all untrue. He's certainly got the full support of all the team here. Mitchell Johnson has promised to target the rib cage of flashy Indian opener Virender Sehwag. Tireless Parramatta forward Nathan Hindmarsh is poised

to become the first player in rugby league history to rack up 10,000 tackles in Friday's clash with South Sydney. The 31-year-old needs to knock over just 16 Rabbitohs to achieve the staggering feat. Meantime, Timana Tahu's NRL return has been put on hold for another week.

He's been left out of the Penrith team to take on Cronulla on Saturday night. England's rugby team has been left red-faced following a severe case of premature celebration. This Nike commercial has leaked onto the internet, congratulating the team on its grand slam success. The only problem is, they didn't complete the grand slam, after losing to Ireland at the weekend. 5,000 limited edition commemorative T-shirts also went to waste.

We love that.

Can't do that in sport. No you can't.

Classic story. Today we are playing

you $500.

Good joke, I like it.

This is actually a wooden horse, but

a beautiful coat, it's Duluux as we

look at the forecast this morning, good morning. A low and trough in the south-east are heading south, causing wind and heavy rain in Tasmania but easing in Victoria. A trough in the north is bringing storms to northern tropical Queensland, the Northern Territory and northern Western Australia. Warm easterlies are affecting WA as cool southerlies bring isolated showers to South Australia.

Believe it or not, this wooden horse

is the key to Australia's success.

It's not a Trojan horse, it's not,

all the players climb up inside and

walk into the other opponent's goal

and climb out and go yes! They

the fallout to Chris Brown's violent rampage in a TV studio.

We're live to the US.

But next, the push for kids to take vitamins that look like lollies. And, how does this work? The Brisbane Lord Mayor who's going to lead the State Opposition without being elected to parliament. So, this morning, I styled with Tousle Me Softly, and became a rock star with perfectly imperfect rocked-out tousles. Then reality struck a chord.

VOICEOVER: Someone's been doing the herbal. New Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly styling collection. Good morning, Sydney,

What a gorgeous start to the morning. as we take a look through the Jetstar Skycam. That's Bondi. Sunny and 28.

All the fitness fanatics out there

already starting their morning, good

on them. Queensland politics is about to get very interesting. Lord Mayor Campbell Newman became the face of the recent Brisbane flood. But now he's announced plans for a bigger political prize.

It's then my intention to reswrined

the Lord Merylty and launch a

leadership challenge for the state

LNP team, it is not straight forward, it is risky. It's a confusing arrangement.

First, Mr Newman has to gain pre-selection for the seat of Ashgrove. He then wants to lead the State Opposition without actually being in parliament. The move has already claimed two political scalps. Leader John-Paul Langbroek and deputy Lawrence Springborg have both resigned. Political commentator Paul Williams joins us from Brisbane. Paul, is this political brilliance or madness?

Well I think it is a bit of both, it

could go either way. It could be a

master stroke that aliinates Labor

because Newman is an incredibly

popular leader in Brisbane because

of his leadership in the floods but

also it could be a debacle and hand

Labor a surprise victory despite the

odds.

He is seizing the moment, making the

most of the, you know, of the

popularity he is feeling, can it

work? Can he be leader if he is not

an elected member?

Well, that is the question most

people are asking themselves. But

technically, and legally he could be

leader given the term they are going

to use, the preferred term for Mr

Newman is going to be alternative

premier, the term Opposition Leader

is reserveed for the leader of the

second biggest party in the

parliament so the leadership wip

rest with an MP, Jim Shheney but he

will be the alternative leader, not the Opposition Leader.

What does it mean if he does go,

during the floods he made a point

being there for the long road ahead.

There is no doubt there will be a

lot of anger amongst some people.

Some are very pleased and looking

for a strong leader to take the LNP

out of the wilderness but a lot of

anger, because Campbell Newman is

very popular in Brisbane and they

have looked to him for the post

flood leadership and it is the

biggest hurdle he is jet to jump if

he is to be successful, is to shed

the tag he is abanding Brisbane

while the flood clean-up is still

going on. It is the biggest

challenge Campbell Newman has to face.

A little lateral, incredulous

yesterday when everybody heard it, but thank use. There's a new marketing push selling lolly-style vitamins for kids Some even look like Gummi Bears. But do children really need them?

Or are parents relying too much on a pill instead of a balanced diet? Nutritionist Matt O'Neill is here. More than a quarter of Aussie kids take vitamins. Are parents overdoing it?

It's a lot. I can understand where

parents are coming from, they want

their kids to eat right and go well,

but the kids' multiies and also, the

lollies, are lollies and

vitaminerize vitamins, they are

taking them, giving them to the kids

and there is a gap in the diet.

and there is a gap in the diet. They should be addressing what the kids

are eating. It is a topup, not a gap

filler for a poor

filler for a poor diet.

I don't have an issue if the kids

need the vitamins and they look like

lollies, it is like cough medicine

that tastes like strawberries but

what sort of vitamins and minerals

do kids need topping up on?

The big things, from national

surveyerize calcium. -- surveys is

salsium, teenage girls go short

salsium, teenage girls go short and it is the time to lay down strong

bones for the rest of your life. You

need a glass of milk, a slice of

cheese, a tub of yobert. Not this

big, just a small tub but a kids'

multi will never have enough

calcium. I saw one that had 5

milligrams, in the kids' multi, you

get 30 mill grams from this orange.

It is hard to know if you are

getting enough, if I have got to put

the effort into getting kids to take

them, I will put the effort into recommending food.

How much vitamin C is there in that.

30 grams, you might have a kids's

multi with 40 mill grps. multi with 40 mill multi with 40

multi with 40grams so this could

have double the amount of vitamin C

than the kids are popping in a pill.

Is it that easy with food?

Is it that easy with food real feed

is where it is at. We can't put

everything from a real food into

vitamin tablet. It is a kick in the pants.

Love having you on, you put it in

perspective. Good to see you.

Thank you. After the break - we'll ask whether shops have forgotten about customers. Then, the video claiming Gaddafi's troops have attacked unarmed civilians. We're live to the trouble zone. And here we go again. Singer Chris Brown smashes a window and storms out of a TV interview after he's asked about Rihanna. The fallout is coming up in a live report from the US, on Sunrise. The Sunrise Showbiz Report brought to you by 'New Idea'. For all the latest celebrity news and more.

restraining order that Rihanna had

issued has been relaxed. Have you

all, you can go to events and be in

the same room. Have you all seen

each other?

Not really, it is not a big deal to

me, I think I am past that

me, I think I am past that in my

life, and today is the album, so

everybody go get the album.

Even the judge afterwards said you

are served your time in regards to

time, and moved on, have you been

able to.

This album is what I want people to

hear and this album is what I want

people to talk about not what

happened two years ago.

I understand that and thank you for

allowing me to go there.

He does look like he is fuming from

the body language, not looking at

her, what happened then?

Then he wept back to the dressing

room. We should point out he

performed one song, was supposed to

perform two, he went back to the

dressing room and eye witnesses say

he trashed the place, glass got

smashed. Ripped his

smashed. Ripped his shirt off and he

took to Twitter, you should not

Twitter in anger and a exmritive and

praised Charlie Sheen. That Tweet

was later deleted and he put in

other things about the album, if you

didn't get it from the clip, he

wants to talk about the album.

Okay, thank you, Nelson, catch you later in the show. Now, still to come on Sunrise this morning - Troops loyal to Colonel Gaddafi accused

of turning on their own people. This morning, the shocking evidence. The teenage boy missing without a trace. The post-mortem on the popular polar bear comes through. We'll talk live to his keeper.

Singer Chris Brown gets angry smashing a window and storming out of an interview after he's asked about Rihanna. Formula One comes to Mt Panorama. Right across Australia, this is Sunrise on Seven. Now, live from Brekky Central, here's Kochie and Mel. If you've just tuned in, a quick trip around the mountain is coming up shortly.

Fellows, just quietly, our

Fellows, just quietly, our prayers have been answered. We're also watching the beer war that has erupted.

Yes you heard me! Forget the eggs,

milk and bread. Supermarkets have started cutting the price of beer. Brewers aren't happy but we're pretty sure drinkers are. Right now Nat has the news of this Wednesday. We'll soon be paying Julia Gillard's flood levy after it was passed by the parliament overnight. Disaster victims and people on less than $50,000 a year won't pay it. It will cost people on $60,000 about $1 a week.

The levy will raise $1.8 billion for disaster reconstruction in Queensland. It passed after the government struck a deal with Independent Senator Nick Xenophon. Queensland Premier Anna Bligh is refusing to rule out an early election after the State Opposition dumped its leadership team yesterday. It followed the announcement by Brisbane Lord Mayor Campbell Newman

that he wants to lead the Liberal National Party. Firstly though he'll have to win a Labor-held seat in Brisbane's north at the next election, whenever that's held. This could be a marvellous success for the LNP or it could be an absolute disaster. Campbell Newman's move mirrors the way he became Brisbane Lord Mayor.

The LNP has appointed an interim leader. 151 asylum seekers intercepted at sea last week have arrived in Broome. A Navy boat carrying the asylum seekers bought the group to the mainland before they boarded buses. The men will be taken to the Curtin Detention Centre while the women and children will be accommodated elsewhere. And Immigration Minister Chris Bowen has admitted a number of detainees are still missing on Christmas Island. 170 detainees broke out of the detention centre

in two separate escapes during last week's unrest. The 12-year-old accused bully who attacked Sydney student Casey Heynes has written him a personal apology. Richard Gale left the note on Casey's doorstep saying he was sorry for hitting him. "Hi, Casey. Sorry for hitting you. "I should have went to the office instead. "I just want all this trouble to stop." Channel 7 is suing Channel 9 for recording a 'Today Tonight' reporter's interview with Richard

then running it minutes later on 'A Current Affair'. Two US airmen have been rescued after their fighter jet crashed during a mission over Libya. The F-15 suffered a mechanical failure near Benghazi. Both crew managed to eject before it crashed and are now back in American hands. The accident comes as new pictures emerge of pro-Gaddafi forces attacking rebels in Masrat. Locals say more than 40 people have been killed in 24 hours of heavy fighting.

Apple addicts will be able to get their hands on the second generation iPad on Friday but they'll have to wait until late in the day. The company says people can pre-order the iPad 2 at 1:00am but will need to wait till 5:00 in the afternoon to physically buy one.

5! 5!

Fricky those Apple might sayers,

aren't they? Just as in the US,

there'll be three wi-fi and three G3 versions

Whatever the hell that means... but despite the strength of the Aussie dollar we'll pay more than our American cousins.

Don't know how that works, Kochie?

Transport, that would be the excuse. Of course.

But they will be cheaper than the

first generation, apparently. The

share market,

first generation, apparently. The share market, sort of wafting all

over the place, wafting is a good

term for it today. It has just

closed, the market, down 15 points.

European markets were also lower as

well. To our region yesterday. Japan

came back from their long weekend

An Achilles injury looks set to deprive Hawthorn of inspirational skipper Luke Hodge for this weekend's round-1 clash against Adelaide. Hodge came through a practise match in the VFL unscathed last week but is lacking match fitness. I guess now with the 3-man interchange rule you can't expect going and playing limited game time. Former AFL star Brendan Fevola says he's ready to debut for VFL side Casey and has rubbished claims he was sacked by his management. Fevola insists it was his decision to sever ties with Velocity Sports. The Aussie cricket team will have its final training session later today ahead of tomorrow night's World Cup quarterfinal against tournament favourites India. Mike Hussey is adamant the side is focused despite rampant speculation over the future of embattled skipper Ricky Ponting. Paceman Mitchell Johnson has intensified the prematch mind games, declaring he's keen to attack the ribcage of dynamic Indian opener Virender Sehwag.

Brett Stewart's NRL comeback will be completed this weekend when he makes an emotional return to Brookvale oval for Manly's clash against Newcastle. Stewart hasn't played at Brookie for two years following two serious knee injuries coupled with sexual assault allegations, of which he was cleared. Knights skipper Kurt Gidley was named but he's likely to miss the game with a back injury.

It is a sport that is often

associated with royalty, our very

own Prince Grant is there this

morning, on the polo field.

Well, thank you very much, sir. Yes,

it is called the rugby on horses, if

you like, I have never seen polo up close.

It is beautiful.

This weekend is a huge international clash between Australia and New

Zealand, a tryout for the world's

which will be played out in

Argentina, we thought we would come

out and what is going to be well

attended, 3,000 people, an extraordinary history this game,

2,500 years it dates back. The other

thing is, you know what they used to

play with. It wasn't a ball. It was

a head. They would play with a head

of your opponent. So if you were

warring, this sort of dates back to

Nepal and Tibet, you would have the

head of an opponent of a warring

army and that is what you through

around at the time, the British

military picked it up and tried to

train their light horsemen to

improve their skills on the

battlefield, from that time on, it

became known as the game of kings,

is a king of games as well, this

weekend at Richmond at the Windsor

polo club, 3,000 people. Australia

is very good, about 1,000 registered

players, they are the top five of

the world and they will go on to

Argentina if they take out the Kiwis

and I believe Kochie, you had a

crack at this in Argentina? Look at that!

Yes, let me tell you I am better at

stomping, like pretty woman, between

the chukkers, I lasted about ninety

seconds, Lib had a lesson and what

qize it, qize seconds, Lib had a lesson and what

was quite good at it, we stayed on a

polo ranch, the Pamplona.

I worried how I would reach the

ground, a long stick! It's a long

way down! Let's look at the forecast. Sunrise Weather brought to you by Beacon Lighting. Be green and beat rising electricity costs during Beacon Lighting's Energy Saving Sale - on now.

My experience with horses is quite

limited, Mel, in fact, my dad had a

Shetland pony as a kid and such is a

stature of my family, he used to

walk under the Shetland pony as a

kid and rub its belly with his head.

Gee, a really pretty sunrise there,

enjoying it, see you in half an hour. There's more disturbing news from Libya. A video has been put online claiming to show Moamar Gaddafi's troops attacking unarmed civilians. It allegedly took place in the rebel-held town of Misurata just days ago. (ALL SPEAK IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE) (EXPLOSION) The video gives support to the UN's intervention but some world leaders think the action against Gaddafi has gone too far. Joining us is foreign affairs editor Dr Keith Suter but first let's go to Seven News reporter Rob Ovadia who's in Tunisia on the Libyan border. Rob, there's been a setback overnight for coalition forces after a US fighter jet crashed in rebel-held country. What more can you tell us?

The F 15 strike eagle jet was on a

mission from Italy, when it crashed

near the antiGaddafi stronghold of

Benghazi which would have been a

blood bath a few days ago

blood bath a few days ago without United Nations intervention. United

States forces have pointed out

mechanical failure is the likely

cause of the crash and it wasn't

shot down but it is

shot down but it is yet to be proven

and the crewmen were lucky to have minor injuries.

Is the defiant leader still targeting civilians?

Well, there seems to be absolutely

no doubt that Gaddafi is ignoring

any demands of a cease-fire from

any demands of a cease-fire from the United Nations. In the past few days

about 40 people have been killed in

the city of Misrata. A rebel strong

hold and Libya's third largest city

and it is places like this allied

forces can do little

forces can do little about. It is

different to Benghazi when they were

able to stop the troops advancing on

the city. In Misrata, loyalalist

snipers are in the town and an

allied bombing campaign there would

risk heavy civilian casualties.

Ground forces would be needed to

turf out the troops but it

turf out the troops but it is not

sanctioned by by the United Nations

that allowed Odyssey Dawn to

that allowed Odyssey Dawn to happen in the first place. The video we are seeing, do you

seeing, do you think it adds more

weight to intervention?

Yes, it helps to justify why

Yes, it helps to justify why the United Nations took the action at

the end of last week, and we saw the

bombing raids very successfully done

on Sunday to avoid a blood bath. The

fear now, is that I think we may be

heading towards a stalemate. In

other words, the assumption was

Sunday you conduct the raids

quickly, save the population of the

eastern end of the country and in

the meantime, somehow or other,

Gaddafi is over thrown. What we have

seen is in fact, that the allies

have now walked into a civil war. In

other words, the rebels have goat qual other words, the rebels have goat other words, the rebels have

other words, the rebels have got

control of the east but not Gaddafi.

What will happen with him? Do you

think Gaddafi is going to back down any time soon?

He can't back down because I can't

see what he is going to do. The

international criminal court is

interested in him, no country will

offer asylum. It is a fight to the

death. What people are homing on

someone will shoot him or he will

commit suicide. He can't flee the

country, I don't think, it will be a

fight to the finish and that is what

the international community is

hoping for. The problem is the

mandate is very narrow as to what we

can do. But the American President

is saying the man should go, but the

problem is, there is no

international authority for that, it

is why there are outside country

whose are thinking the Americans and

others are going too far. The

mandate is very narrow, very clear

and the Americans are trying to go

further. Regime change is not authorised by the United Nations.

And that is our problem because that

is what we want but it is not what the authority says.

Alright, thank you, Keith, good to

talk to you and Rob in Tunisia too,

thank you. Home video has been released of a missing Queensland boy in the hope it'll spark somebody's memory. It's been two weeks since Declan Crouch left his family home in Cairns.

Nothing has been heard from him since. Police don't know where else to look for the 13-year-old. Friends also haven't been able to reveal any reason

for this disappearance. Detective Acting Inspector Ed Kinbacher is one of dozens of officers working on the case. Good morning. Tell us about Declan's last known movements.

Yes, good morning, Kochie mism um,

are aware that declin arrived home

on the bus at about 4 p.m. On the

9th of March. Now the investigation

has not progressive effectively past

that point. We know a family member

arrived home at 5 p.m.

arrived home at 5 p.m., one hour

later and Declan was not home. The

family member queried his mother, to

see if she knew where he was. She

certainly had no information he had

gone away or that anything unusual.

So quite simply, we don't know.

Declan arrived home on the bus,

Declan arrived home on the bus, that has been confirmed. From that point

of time we have no information.

What avenues have you explored so

far? The weather was pretty wild at

the time, wasn't it? Any suspicion

of foul play?

Oh... Kochie, the investigation is

totally open in scope. Simply, we

are investigating all possible

avenues. Quite simply, Declan could

have left of his own volition, it is

a possibility. We have excluded he

is in the environments of Cairns, we

believe he isn't here. There is a

rumour possibly he wanted to go to

Melbourne, some time ago. That is

unconfirmed but it is a possibility

that we are requesting

that we are requesting assistance from the broader Australian

community effectly. We put the

images out there, what we want

people to do is have a look,

familiarise themselves and see if

the boy is around the community. If

so, so, if so, advise your local

police or Crime Stoppers and get the

information through to us.

So that is what we can do. Because

his family is friends must be

incredible distressed at thisx we

put the number up, 1 800, 3 3 3 0 0 put the number up, 1 800, 3 3 3 0 put the number up, 1 800, 3 3 3 0 0

0. Do your bit. If we can do anymore

or you make progress, keep us up to date. Thank you. We've been amazed by the number of emails to us

about taxi problems. Yesterday we discussed how cab services can let us down but this morning we're casting the net wider. Is the service you get in shops up to scratch? It doesn't look like it, as we've seen on 'Today Tonight'. Here's part of Rodney Lohse's report.

We are just concerned about the... (bird tweets) (bird tweets).

I was just talking to her. Sorry.

I was just talking to her.

She's finished for the day.

So she can just walk away without

saying I will leave you with this

person or that person. How rude are you?

Do you need a hand with anything or

you just telling me... If you have

coming here to have a whinge, not interested. From that it seems the customer isn't right at all. Brett Whitford is from the Customer Service Institute. Good morning. Retailers say trade is quiet.

How much of that comes down to service?

Mel, all of it, in many ways. You

hear them bleating and carrying out

about the Internet but the problem

is they are not creating a delivered

service experience we want. That

footage is outrageous, I watched it

on 'Today Tonight' and I couldn't

believe what I am seeing. You have

got staff who are not accountable.

We have been talking about shop

lifters and having security cameras,

we don't have security cameras that

capture the shop destroyers which

are people like that lady we

encouraged pill millions of dollars

to walk out of the store every year

unspent.

What are the most complained about areas? What are the most complained about

areas?. All areas, particularly

retail. The problem lies with poor

training and poor staff and really,

management that

management that don't care. Kochie is a great finance guy so I am sure

he could tell us more about how the

invisible cost of bad service

because staff just don't care. And

managers don't care. So it is

managers don't care. So it is share holders and customers who miss out.

It is all very well for owners and

managers to comPalestine mrain but

at the end o -- to complain but at

the end of the day it is their

responsibility. And the mystery

shopping is a great tool. But it

needs to be followed up and needs to be followed up and people trained.

If you do have a complaint as a

customer, what should you do? In all

honesty, most will walk out and

never go back taoch never go back never go

never go. To go through formal

channels is a pain. channels is a pain.?

I think that is the problem. I liked

the fact that customers are more

assertive now in Australia but then

you get into the conflict situations

and no-one wants to go through a

conflict when they want to go out

and buy something. So it is very

upsetting that we don't complain. So

look I would try to complain on the

spot and ask them to be reasonable,

be polite but firm, sfeek managers

but -- speak to managers but they

are non-existence.

Good reminder to be polite, having

worked on the other side, I can tell you some customers have

you some customers can be rude so a

delicate balance. Absolutely. Thank you.

Thanks, Mel. History has been made at Mount Panorama. British driver Jenson Button has become the first man to take a Formula One car for a spin around the famous circuit. Beretts sat down with the racing star to see how he enjoyed the ride. Jenson Button has conquered some of the world's most famous racetracks including Monaco, Monza and Spa but he describes Mt Panorama as one of the greatest in the world. And it's been a lifelong dream to take on the famous Bathurst circuit.

Always great on TV, the scrapeing

the barriers and coming down the

hill but you don't really get a

sense of the speed or the action,

but actually coming here and seeing

it and driving it

it and driving it is a very special feeling.

# Thunder # Now that dream has finally come true. But it wasn't easy. Button's car was insured for $2 million for the day. Keep in mind though, this is a car that can go from 0km/h to 160km/h and back in just four seconds. A car so powerful it can drive upside down in a tunnel.

# Thunder struck

# Yeah, yeah thunder struck # Not surprisingly, Button smashed the lap record set by V8 driver Craig Lowndes. He made it around the course in one 1 minute 48 seconds and reckons he could have done it faster. Even the helicopter sent to film the event struggled to keep up. Mel, that's a little faster than your Datsun 180. Just... Then it was Lowndes' turn. He came within 1.5 seconds of Button's lap time.

Loundsey is giving it a really good

go, he is flying. A huge crowd turned out to see history in the making. For motor racing fans it doesn't get any better than this. Jenson Button is going for a third straight win in the Australian Grand Prix which starts on Thursday.

There you go, hence Beretts is not

here, still recovering, he had a

cracker of a day, we will talk to

him more about it tomorrow. More now on singer Chris Brown who has flown into a rage after a TV interview in New York.

He was asked about his former girlfriend, Rihanna. Seven News US correspondent Angela Cox is covering the fallout. Good morning, Angela. Angela, what's Chris Brown done now?

To say he is angry is an understatementm

Yes, he was on the show to promote

his new album and sat down

his new album and sat down for a

quick chat before performing the

song with the host, she asked about

Rihanna and the incident. He didn't

like it, walked off after performing

one song, wept to one song, wept

one song, went to the dressing room,

smashed a window, no no-one at the

station saw it, stormed off with his

shirt gone. He seemed ago with the

questions before the show but when

the cameras were rolling he didn't like it.

The restraining order that Rihanna

had against you has been relaxed.

Have you all, you can go to events

and be in the same room? Have you

all seen each other?

I mean, not really, it is not really

a big deal to me, with that

situation, I think I am past that in

my life, and today is the album, I

am focusing on so everybody go get that album.

He quickly went into damage

He quickly went into damage control

after, what did he say?

Sortly after he left the studio, he

Tweeted a message, "

Tweeted a message, "I am so over

people bringing up the past yet we

praise Charlie Sheen and atheer

celebrities. I guess he has a point,

Charlie Sheen has been made out to

be a folk hereee be a folk

be a folk hero and he has a record

of violence against women but then

retracted it and said:

This also raises questions about his

probation after convicted he was

placed on five years probation.

Technically, he could be charge

would vandalism but it seems no-one

saw him throw the chair. We don't

think police the went to the station

so we will have to wait to see

so we will have to wait to see if there are formal charges stemming

from his outburst.

Thank you for the update, Angela Cox. Coming up - the hotel with a floor just for women. Also, Charlie's kiss. The troubled actor surprises an American TV host. And heard of Sparkadia?

If not, listen up.

300 campers will have to wait for emergency crews to access a remote part of Northern Victoria after floodwaters cut the main road out. At Moe, three people had to be rescued after trying to drive through rising waters as the Princes Highway flooded. Torrential rain and thunderstorms are battering the Gippsland region. All the water on the road is just backing up all the drains

and all the drains are popping so we're trying to plug the drains and hold back the water. The SES has responded to 60 call-outs from people in the area. Bus loads of carbon tax protesters are preparing to leave for Canberra to rally outside Federal Parliament today. However, the Greens say a new Galaxy poll conducted at the weekend proves the vast majority of Australians support the introduction of a carbon pricing system. People, by more than 3-to-1 in Australia, say, "No, the polluters should pay". In other words, Tony Abbott is on a loser. Senator Brown has also dismissed suggestions by Julia Gillard that she was strongarmed into introducing a carbon tax. A 4-year-old Sydney girl has survived after falling three storeys out a bedroom window. Despite the fall, she managed to get up and knock on her neighbour's door, who then raised the alarm.
