Prime Minister Julia Gillard is being urged to cut ties with the Greens if Parliament becomes unworkable. In a move set to inflame party tensions, senior Labor figures believe it could be a good move for the PM. Union boss Paul Howes is also preparing to publicly urge the Labor Party to distance itself from the Greens. of an early election - however unionists and MPs admit they are not campaign-ready for a snap poll. As the scandal surrounding Labor MP Craig Thomson continues Independents are calling for 'cool heads'. Some cross benchers have expressed their concern over using Parliament to punish the MP. It follows claims by Mr Thomson that he was 'set-up' with prostitutes in a bid to destroy his political career. Mr Thomson denies the allegations he used a union credit card for escorts. He now faces the prospect of a possible censure motion when he makes a statement to Parliament later this month. Queensland police say they are confident they will soon make an arrest over the murder of Brisbane mum Allison Baden-Clay. Detectives investigating her death strongly believe her murder was not random and Ms Baden-Clay knew her killer. Around 30 police are still working on the investigation - focusing on the suburbs around Brookfield where Mrs Baden-Clay was last seen. It's believed her husband Gerard is yet to make an official statement after reporting her missing on April 20. Overseas - British police have arrested two men on suspicion of terrorism activity. Police raided two properties in Cheltenham in western England where they arrested the men. More than 100 homes were evacuated in the area as investigators conducted controlled explosions of items found during the search. The men are yet to be charged. Locals in the area who were evacuated are not allowed to return to their homes this weekend as investigations continue. Homicide detectives are looking at whether a Gold Coast nightclub promoter accidentally fell from a high-rise apartment or was pushed. The 29-year-old man fell 31 storeys from the balcony of the Beachcomber Resort at Surfers Paradise. His body was found in a garden bed. Obviously this is a tragic matter and police are doing the best they can to get to the bottom and try explain exactly why it's happened. Police are hoping more witnesses will come forward, particularly those who were in his unit at the time. NSW teachers are set to walk off the job on Friday, causing chaos for parents. 750,000 students are likely to be affected by the two-hour stop work meeting which will also disrupt planned Naplan tests.

Within a day of them being them being signed, they are in the studio and they're making their first hit this weekend, 1963. A chuck berry song called come on. So this all happened on the same week end Just one of those ut interesting weekends to note. Would you. There are days like that like January 8 that everyone's rock birthday. You get days or period when and I looked at my diary, look at this, all these things. How do you like that The first couple of stones records were all covers of American Blues songs. They didn't wrote song. Lennon They didn't wrote song. Lennon wrote " They didn't wrote song. Lennon wrote "I want to be your man''. Their manager locked them in a room and said " said "write some songs" so they

wrote some songs. I wonder what Mick and Keith are doing to celebrate, do you think they remember. I think a few - the water has passed under the bridge. It wasn't all watery believe, I believe, Glen. There was some water. We loved the stones. We have to move on as well. Another great veargs this weekend. 1981, the year after we lost John Lennon, we lose Bob Marley, just 36 years of age. The man who took reggae out to the whole world. He had a lot of things in common with Lennon actually. He had no father-in-law his life a mother who left him et cetera. What is interesting is that - well, he became emblem attic of reggae, we wouldn't have thought about it until Marley came along. It was incredible. Reggae IBM almost a cross over disco. It faded a bit. He was - how do we put it. He had a melanoma on his big toe. A few years later he was rid willed with cancer. He did that man thing of not getting himself checked. By the way, a new fim called simply'Marley''just about to be released in Australia, made bit family. I saw it recently it's a great fim. It's a power full fim.

Also ahead - the numbers are in - which of your federal MPs support gay marriage and which won't have a bar of it? But next, the latest crisis facing the people of Greece. Now they can't form a government. Hey, Australia. We get that you're all different. We get how you use or don't use your car. We get where you live.

We get you. Now it's fallen into even greater crisis with no political party able to form government. There is likely to be a second election within weeks but again, no guarantee a government will be elected. Our Martin Frizell is watching this unfold from London. Martin, how did it get this way and how does it fix it? Sam, it was a Greek tragedy, it has now become a now become a farce. This will be the fourth time they are going to try and form a government in a week. Elects were held last week, three parties couldn't find anyway to a government that could rule. The President is meeting them today, parties couldn't find anyway to form

knocking heads together. If he can't get anything out of them, they are going to have to go to another general election in a month's time. If you want an idea of the problem that Greece is in, what about the 600 professions that are listed in Greece as being able to retire at 50 and amongst those profession x hairdressers and pastry khefs. Can you retire on 95% of your salary, paid for by the state because your job is deemed to be arduous and peril us. Half of young r all youngsters in Greece are unemployment, the reason no-one is get a government together, there are new party springing up. They don't want any of the European bail out. They won't agree to that, then Germany in particular gives them no money and Greece will go bankrupt. Those anti-austerity parties seem to be in the public opinion poling anyway, the clear leaders going into any potential election. So I mean, will Greece be forced out of the Eurozone if they win, Martin? Yes, the young people are supporting these parties and Greece will default or it will be forced out. these parties and Greece will either The anti-austerity people are calling the bluff, they calling the bluff, they can't calling the bluff, they can't afford for the Euro to collapse chl the bankers are expecting this. They are factoring these things now in the stoms. They expect Greece will default or will be let go. Oh dear.

Fire investigators will remain on the scene today. It's unclear how the blaze started. Julia Gillard is being pushed to cut ties with the Greens if Parliament becomes unworkable.

It's one of the most-anticipated initial public offerings in years, but we're being urged to think twice before jumping at the chance to own part of Facebook. Facebook executives are now meeting with potential investors before they spend up. Facebook kept our cameras far away from the bay area stop of his Roadshow but while company executives met with investors, you may be asking should I postnatally up for some Facebook shares. Kevin Spain says we are fascinated with Facebook stock because we're fascinated with face back. We as investors, we are consumers. We understand this teedge.

Facebook developed something so massive Kevin says go ahead and buy but if you are willing to stay the ups and down. Kevin says go ahead and buy but only

I think if you are a long-term investor. I think it's a perfectly reasonable thing to do, otherwise you'll have to take your chances.

It could be make a movie out starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. It could be make a movie out of her, American billionaire Warren Buffet has long argued there's something wrong when he pays a lower rate of tax than his secretary. And now Australia's union movement wants to go a step further - arguing its time our own mega-rich were slugged much more. The ACTU is calling for a new millionaires' tax. Assistant secretary Tim Lyons is leading the charge. Good morning to you. What is preventing them from paying in your view, their fair share. Really we see the issue as being at the moment, depending on how you earn your income, you may pay a lot less tax. In essence, the difference between those of us who earn either almost all or all of our money through wages and salaries and those that are able to earn significant proportions of their income or in some cases millions of dollars through capital gains. Because capital gains are taxed at lower rates, capital gains are taxed at lower rates than ordinary wages, what that can mean here in Australia, as it does in the United States, is that people on very moddest incomes pay higher effective levels of tax than extremely wealthy people. And we just don't think that's fair. ACTU congress this week, will be considering a policy to basically bring in an Australian version of the buffet rule you referred to. Just quickly, what are most of those capital gains made on? Or is it just too hard to say across the board. It would be a variety of things, Andrew, the principal one from the sale of vair sale of varying sorts of assets, either from business assets or personal assets or shares or other things where they are disposed of and you get income. That's taxed at a lower rate than as I said, normal wages and salary. But for wages and salary. But for many people, that - for many of the very rich people, that's an enormous percentage of their percentage of their energy. As I said, in the United States, the situation with with situation with with your even buffet was when he was doing his tax at the same time as his secretary, was when he was doing his tax return they discovered that she paid a higher rate than him. At what level of income would you like to see this new tax kicking) how do we define mega rich? It's not a matter of it kicking in at an income at an income level. Once things are hitting someone's own bank if you like. Wurns earnings are crystal eeuzed with a individual, hitting someone's own bank account

that this should be taxed at the same rate, regardless of the source of that original money. So it's about applying the normal income tax rates to - and applying them across to capital gains and not giving people massive discounts they are able to take their income in particular ways. people massive discounts because

That would only be capital gains made by people who are already on a base earning of X amount, right. Well, it would apply to everybody but the people that it would in terms of people that will be paying it would be very wealthy but the people that it would affect

people and that's why we referred to it as the mill airs tax. Australia is a fair bit more equal than we think it is. Australians like to think of ourselves as a very equal place without a very dramatic spread in wealth that we might think of applying overseas but in fact, around about 60% of all the assets in Australia are held by the top 20% of people. So there is a real concentration of assets and wealth amongst a very limited group and it's really that group that would in the end paying some additional it's really that group that would be taxation to bring their level of tax up to what the rest of us pay. Yes, as you say, we really don't have that big a population. We don't have that many mega rich, if as you argue the richest people don't pay enough tax, don't you think they contribute in many other ways? I mean, aren't these people, the Clive palmers, Lindsay palmers, Lindsay fox es employing many Australians. Nothing about this proposal will stop people investing or running businesses in the ordinary course of events. But it's important that we understand that I know it doesn't feel like this a lot of the time, but Australia is actually a very low taxed country. Our tax take as a proportion of GDP, as a of the whole economy is well below proportion of GDP, as a proportion the EOCD average. It's about the same or just a little bit more than the United States which is always held up as a low tax country. Australians Pay less tax than in the uck, in Canada, in New Zealand. As I say, all but a small Australians Pay less tax than people

handful of the rest of handful of the rest of the Oecd, there is plenty of room we say there ought to be some more tax paid by people who can afford to pay it. there is plenty of room we say for

And we think the figures back that up. All right, Tim. As people like Dick Smith have said repeatedly, you know, Australia has ay bad track record when it record when it comes to tlop, when it comes, it need to be taxed. I think interesting thing about United States versus here, is in the I think interesting thing about the uses you've got Warren buffet, a billionaire who is saying he says he shutd pay this tax. We have yet to see an Australian billionaire break ranks and say " ranks and say "I can afford to pay more" I bet if it came n he would find a whole bevy of accountants to get out of paying too much. Just what you do when you are that wealthy. Thank you, Ahead this morning - the concussion crisis in kids' sport. New stats reveal the true picture. Also coming up - the writer who told Britain that Australia has an unhealthy fear of boat people. So is she right? But next, the parents who come out as gay to their children.

If you were watching yesterday, you'd know we've been trying to get our federal MPs to show their hand on gay marriage. We've contacted the offices of all 150 members of the House of Reps. We thought the question was pretty simple. Do you support same-sex marriage? Even though we started this mission on Thursday, a remarkable 54 MPs are still to provide us with a clear answer. We did make some progress since yesterday though. 29 MPs are now on the record as supporting same-sex marriage, 62 are against. And five told us they are yet to make up their mind. You'll find the list on our website later this morning. And the reluctance of our federal MPs to show their true colours is perhaps a reflection of society in general. We know that many kids struggle to come out fearing the reaction of family and friends. But what about when the roles are reversed? When mums or dads come out it can often have much bigger ramifications. David Laws came out to his daughter Alexandra five years ago. They join us now along with relationships expert Dr Az Hakeem. Good morning to you all. David, why did you decide to come out to Alexandra? , How did you decide that the time was right to come out to - well, to Alexandra and to your wife at the time. It's a funny thing, Andrew. It was something that was fraud with a lot of difficult and pain. But it was an essential step for me to take because it's all about living your truth and it's about living it with love and authenticity and this is what we tried to raise our children with, is that aspect ever being truthful, authentic and loving and we just had to take that step. Sure. Alex rand, you are 18 now. NewLine In September. You were 13 when your dad told you he was gay. How did you react. NewLine I was shocked a bit like because I knew that they were separating. That wasn't really a big shock to me. When they told me down and dad told me that, that was okay and dad told me that, that was okay. Did you have other people in your life who were gay or who had had experience of gay relationships. NewLine Actually on my mum's of the family, there are people, NewLine Actually on my mum's side aunties and uncles who are gay but I mean, some of my friends' parents, they have come out gay as well. That's interesting. That's good. David, did you know that you were gay when you married and had Alexandra.

I I had those feelings but I could

easily address them and put aside. I didn't think it was such easily address them and put them big thing. When I met Lisand we fell in love. We had a great relationship aside. I didn't think it was such a

over the 20 years period that we were married. It wasn't until I grew older that I start Todd get those stronger feelings. I always refer to it as the little whisper that grew into a roar. I just knew that that is what I had to do. It was a difficult feeling but I just knew that by the time I had reached my late 30, around the early 40s mark. I knew what my truth what. There you go. Dr Az, do most people in this situation, I say children the timealAndra was only 13, do they situation, I say children because at handle this as she and this family have handled it. NewLine Re search shows us that children deal with quite well. They are pretty re sill yant. What we have to bear in mind shows us that children deal with it

is what you till the children. How is what you till the children. is what you till the is what you till is what you till tell the children and how helpful can that environment be to help the child. In a way, it did be did be as big a deal as we make it. If we sort it out in our If we sort it out in our own If we sort it out in our own heads and present it as something that isn't a big deal. It's less likely to be trauma teeuzing for the children. As presumably in the case of David and Lisa, most situations of coming out, coincide with a break up of a marriage. So those two issues must kind of compound each other in the life of the child. NewLine Sure. It's a double shock. And sometimes it's difficult tease out which bit of that double And sometimes it's difficult to thing is the most shocking. I mean, re search in America on this, showed that actually, it was the separation bit that was more difficult for children to come to terms with than the gay parent aspect of it. This can - I mean, if we look at the relationship between the parents when they separating, this has more of an impact on the children and how well they cope with it. If there's a really difficult antagonistic relationship between parents, that will be more difficult for the child who is torn amongst that than the gay aspect of it. I am not saying the gay aspect is easy but it's probably difficult to tease these things out. Studies show the separating and how it occurs is more difficult for the children to deal with. David, what is your advice to parents who are too afraid perhaps to get out of a marriage or to come out to hair children or wife's or husbands. Sam, I would highly recommend people to never underestimate the love that the children have for us and don't underestimate the amount of what are calledallove, wisdom and compassion that the kids have. They have a great understanding. Don't underestimate the power of their love and understanding. I know when I sat down with Alex and toll her, was just such a Harrowing experience. At the age of 13, I sat I sat down with Alex and toll her, I

her on the couch, had her legs across and was stroking her legs and gently told her and she said " gently told her and she said "dad, it's okay. I love you. it's okay. I love you." It's quite okay. I was really quite shocked the way she handled it with the maturity that she did. So perhaps the last word should go to Alex on this. Do you feel quality, the nature of your love for your dad is the same as when you to Alex on this. Do you feel the

thought he was straight. I mean, yeah, he's my dad. So you only get one. NewLine Well said, sweetheart. Good on you. Love will you to have you all in. Thank you very much.
