She'll appear in The State Government has been accused of policy stealing after making a bid for the Green vote. It's unveiled a plan to ensure ethanol is used in cars across the State. The Premier unveiled his Green fuel plan at a Petersham service station within the Green's inner-city heartland. A 2% ethanol mandate by September rising to 10% by 2011. It is a win for the environment, a win for motorists and a win for industry and jobs in NSW. Wholesalers will have to prove each quarter that ethanol makes up at least 2% of total fuel sales. Unleaded and premium will still be available. Up to 10 ethanol plants are currently in planning. And this will mean they are now bankable projects. Support from the NRMA... And the real thing is it encourages competition in the fuel market which really hasn't been there to date. ..and motorists... I don't find any change, any difference, in normal unleaded and it's cheaper. The Opposition has accused the Government of stealing its policy - it promised to mandate ethanol back in August last year. But the Opposition says the Government has overlooked compensation for service stations which will need upgraded infrastructure. Don't do half the job. Do the whole job. Do it properly or don't do it at all.

The Coalition promised servos $5 million. Paul Mullins, Ten News. Iraq has dominated Federal Parliament today with Kevin Rudd calling John Howard's bluff. The Opposition Leader outraged Government MPs by detailing his withdrawal plan for coalition forces. His call for a national TV debate on Iraq rebuffed, Kevin Rudd attempted to bring one on as soon as the Parliament resumed. ..as would prevent the Prime Minister from immediately coming to the House and debating the Leader of the Opposition...

The Government defeated the move. At a news conference with the Finnish President, Mr Howard was asked why he ducked the debate.

Early morning stunts. Mr Rudd, stung by the Prime Minister's barb that he lacked the courage of his convictions on Iraq, spelt out his view that the country had descended into civil war. A staged withdrawal of US troops is the only way, the only way, in which you bring political pressure to bear on the Sunni and Shia who are currently ripping each other apart. A recipe for disaster, according to John Howard. It would be, to use one of his expressions, Mr Speaker, a rolled-gold catastrophe for the security interests of our own nation. When will the Prime Minister have the courage and the decency to admit that he got this war radically wrong from day one. And could the Prime Minister guarantee that President Bush himself won't embrace a staged withdrawal? No, he couldn't, but.. I do not believe that the Americans will embrace a strategy that leads to defeat. The Prime Minister refuses to concede the war is being lost in Iraq.

His denial in lock step with the Bush Administration whose view was spelt out today by the US Ambassador. This Administration really believes that it can win the war in Iraq. Opinion polls here and in America show an increasing majority don't share that hope. Paul Bongiorno, Ten News.

Tim Webster with sport, and police are now investigating allegations surrounding Penrith's Craig Gower. Yes, a complaint has been made to police about alleged incidents at a Sydney nightclub, but while police begin their inquiries Penrith officials have now seen security footage from the nightclub

A gang of machete-wielding bandits is on the rampage, attacking convenience stores across Sydney's west.

Police fear they're out of control and could make a tragic mistake. Heavily armed and partially disguised the duo move fast, cleaning out the family business in seconds. Wielding long-bladed knives, they threaten to stab the store owner and his son as they grab cash and cigarettes in a daring afternoon raid. The guy came in with a knife and what happens? How much money? Police believe the men held up the store last month too. When the thieves made their getaway the store owner gave chase,

trying to get a better look at the thieves,

following them in his car for several blocks but police say it was a dangerous move.

We don't know whether these particular offenders are drug addicts. They may have been high on drugs at the time. Certainly they would have been pumped up and their adrenaline would have been going, committing the armed robbery, and they're likely to make tragic mistakes. Detectives are working out if the same two Islanders struck another Homebush convenience store last night. Again they were armed with knives,

their identity disguised by hooded tops as they took cigarettes and money. This store was also robbed just last week. Police would like to hear from anyone who recognises the men. Evan Batten, Ten News. Olympic kayaker Nathan Baggaley has been charged for the second time in a week over ecstasy. Police allegedly found a pill press at the Gold Coast home of the Olympic silver medallist. Olympic kayaker Nathan Baggaley's already tarnished reputation took another beating today. The dual silver medallist back in court for the second time in a week. We've got no comment at the moment. My client just wants to get back into training for the Olympics. Police raided the 31-year-old's Gold Coast home.

There they claim to have found a quantity of ecstasy and a pill press used to make tablets.

REPORTER: Two court appearances in one week - it's not good, is it? We've got no comment in relation to that. Appearing in court and being convicted are two different things. The 3-time world champion was only granted watch-house bail last week after police allegedly found more than 700 ecstasy tablets in his car. He was driving home to the Gold Coast after a trip to Byron Bay with a fellow paddler. Baggaley only returned to the water last month

following a 15-month ban for testing positive to steroids. He's now in training for the Beijing Olympics, but, if found guilty, his sporting future may once again be in doubt. Baggaley's solicitor told the magistrate he will at some stage make a submission

which should resolve the issue. That will presumably be at his next court appearance in March. Chloe Symons, Ten News. John Howard's WorkChoices legislation is again under fire. 50,000 childcare and council workers have gone to the Industrial Relations Commission, fearing they're being robbed of their paid maternity leave. When this working mum fell pregnant

she had the safety net of nine weeks maternity leave, but now, with her baby due in July, Clairy Fakinos says she may get nothing. With this baby that I'm having now, if I didn't have access to it, with the interest rate rises that happened last year I'd pretty much need to be back at work within two weeks of having the baby. Today at the Industrial Relations Commission...

(All chant) Solidarity forever! ..local government and childcare workers launched a desperate bid to keep their maternity leave, fearing John Howard's WorkChoices legislation will leave them with nothing.

Young children have the right to be cared for and we want to ensure that. We don't want to go back to the Dark Ages. It was only in 2001

these workers won a battle to get nine weeks paid leave. We're getting it taken away from us, and that's not fair.

We're very angry. Girls, are we angry? The United Services Union says this is a landmark test of the controversial WorkChoices legislation.

We are determined to do everything we can to protect our members from the adverse effects of these laws. The Industrial Relations Commission today ruled this case was putting the cart before the horse, saying award negotiations should take place first,

then if employees are stripped of entitlements this fight will return to the Commission. The union is concerned that workers will have to bargain with councils individually, despite the Local Government Association denying it plans to dump maternity leave provisions. Jacinta Hocking, Ten News. Couples, singles, husbands, wives - whatever your relationship status, there was no avoiding the sea of love and flowers across Sydney. Valentine's Day celebrated

regardless of whether Cupid's arrow hit its mark.

If love can be a long and winding road, these couples chose the high road to wake up on Valentine's Day. But there wasn't enough love in the air to prompt any proposals. So what would you do if he did ask? I don't know - I'd probably say yes, I suppose. That's putting the pressure on. Cupid wasn't exactly hitting the desired target. Take it one bridge at a time. While high-altitude romance wasn't getting results, on the ground there was plenty of commitment. You may now kiss the bride. Congratulations. Thank you, very much. There were 26 'I do's in the city's registry offices today alone. This union, three months in the planning. For those who've already tied the knot it was simply another day in paradise. There's always love in the air between the two of us, so I don't think one day to the next makes no difference. Others had different motives. I was supposed to cook her dinner last night and I got held up at work...so... And whether it was a case of taking the time to pick the perfect rose or getting some delivered,

it was a blooming good day for florists either way. I can't say that I've slept for three days,

but it's one of those things - it's the adrenaline that gets you going.

Apparently it's not just chocolates and roses that can get you a long way in the love stakes these days. A new survey found 20% of people asked found romance simply by walking their dogs. But if puppy love's not appealing, Valentine that little bit longer. you may just have to wait for your Josh Murphy, Ten News.

Another celebrity is battling a prescription drug addiction. Pop superstar Robbie Williams has checked himself into rehab on his 33rd birthday. The singer is apparently hooked on medication for depression, an illness he's struggled with for years. I was just sad that my career went like that

As part of the country's makeover for the Games, the stadium was knocked to the ground to make way for a shopping centre. A new 60,000-seat arena will be built in another part of the city but many Chinese will view the destruction as a bad omen - it was considered the country's luckiest football ground after China clinched an historic win in 2001 to qualify for the Rugby World Cup. Queensland could become the first State where smacking your kids could land you in court.

Welfare advocates argue current laws allow parents to go too far. If you're a parent, you've been there.

Emotions run high, the 4-year-old's not listening, so it comes to this. At the moment, there's no law stopping a smack becoming an assault, especially where an implement is involved, like the good old wooden spoon. Which allows a parent to hide behind it

in circumstances where that parent has belted the living daylights out of their kid, and that should not be allowed. We need to refine this law.

Tomorrow night a forum will be held in Brisbane to debate the issue of corporal punishment. It could see Queensland join 14 other countries round the world in drawing up laws which would see: People are still locked into a 19th-century mind-set, and what we're trying to do is move them into a present-day mind-set. But before parents start burning down the Parliament House gates, the changes would still allow a moderate tap on the bottom, but not a flogging.

No change to the law should lead to the situation where parents gets treated as if they're criminals simply for harmless smacking of their children. Forum organisers say it's not designed to see anything change overnight, if ever, but more to smiply raise the issue and put it out there for discussion.

The Queensland Commissioner for Children puts it this way. I think we need to think about those alternative forms and what's most effective in assisting children understand how they need to control their own behaviours. In other words, sparing the rod and spoiling the child is anything but. Tim Collits, Ten News. Another bumper profit for the Commonweatlth Bank - that's next.
