Remember the report last week said Australians were the most fearful in the world about their financial future, overnight the OECD says Australia is the happiest industrialised nation in the world. Morning. Savanth Sebastian is at CommSec. The OECD is saying, " The OECD is saying, "Hey, our economic growth is going to be one of the world leaders." It is. Normway normally takes the prize on this survey but we have topped that and come in on No.1. It suggests across a variety of indicators, unemployment is low, safety is strong, education is strong. It seems to suggest that over all Australia is in prime position. I think it comes back to what Reserve Bank governor has said in a think it comes back to what the speech in Hong Kong, he hasn't seen Australians so pessimistic and foreigners so positive. If there is any more time to feel more confident about life it is now. But the survey highlighted our work / life balance is poor. There is a boom in terms of income because of the mining sector but at the same time we with working quite hard on the incomes. And warning on the housing market, it will still stay soft from the OECD. So many economists are saying we are more concerned about Europe than we are.

Essendon's Leroy Jetta will miss this weekend's encounter with Greater Western Sydney after losing his challenge to a 1-game suspension at the AFL Tribunal. It took the panel just a minute to uphold Jetta's ban for striking Richmond's Dylan Grimes. Leroy's disappointed, you know, obviously, it was a very quick decision by the jury and, I mean, he's just, he felt it was on the minor end of the scales. Jetta also has to deal with the stigma of being the first player booked for staging. Sprint king Usain Bolt believes he's capable of running a blistering 9.4 seconds for the 100m sprint in London.

Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has slashed 5 years off her 20-year term after an appeal for clemency. When added to previous remisions, Corby could be released in 2015. Although she may be granted parole even sooner. Joining us now from Bali is 'Today Tonight' reporter Graeme Butler. Good morning. Graeme, is it any clearer when Corby will be released? Um, well, no is the short answer. you know, this really only broke late yesterday and it is still early Um, well, no is the short answer. As

morning here in Bali. But there are two possibilities emerging here you said. I guess a best two possibilities emerging here as worse-case scenario fortia pel. The you said. I guess a best and best case is she could get parole as early as August but there will be conditions attached to that. One may be she be she needs to stay in Bali. worse-case scenario, she would be released in three years to take it be she needs to stay in Bali. The

to 2015. That would still be a 10-year sentence which is half the original 20 years when she was sentence back in 2000 fiver. Have we -- 2005. Have we heard -- 2005. Have we heard from her family? Indirectly. Mercedes was expect to issue a statement at the jail yesterday and do an She has held back. We believe she is waiting for the letter from the jail yesterday and do an interview.

President to arrive at the jail. I am told it did arrive early evening. So Shcapelle is aware of it. The family is saying that they're holding off the celebrations. They want to make sure that this is happening. They want to see Shcapelle back in Australia. But they have thanked their supporters. The Schapelle Corby case has certainly polarised people.

Corby could be released in 2015. When added to previous remissions, even sooner. Although she may be granted parole Joining me now Barton from Monash University. is Indonesian expert Professor Greg Good morning. to the decision in Indonesia? Greg, what's the reaction been How significant is this move by the Indonesian government? A very significant move for Schapelle. One hopes she gets parole and releaseinise to the care of -- released into the care of her sister in Bali. It is part of a reciprocal series of negotiations, as explained by Indonesian authorities involving the return of alleged people smugglers from Australia, many who may have been wrongly jailed as adults when they are in fact juvenile. We have had recent exchanges. There is the possibility of a prisoner exchange scheme has been talked about for many years of a prisoner exchange scheme that but it a promising way it might be under way. It helps the Bali Nine, two of course, of whom face the death penalties. What does it mean two of course, of whom face the death

for others locked up? The best case scenario, and it is important to be cautious about the way we discuss Schapelle's case, bad press could give politicians cold feet. But the best scenario, perhaps she gets out early on parole this year but others might be part of a prisoner exchange program later down the line and hope for clemency for the Bali Nine. They have acknowledged guilt and shown remorse and that strengthens the case for clemency. Schapelle has maintained her stance but the President is still slashing her sentence so it is a promising sign. Given our government has to walk a fine line? They stay quiet? Yes, that is why we talk about mid2015 for Schapelle to be released. There is no precedent for a convicted drug trafficker to be release under to family. But so much is riding on this it is important how we discuss it. We heard August this year and you are saying 2015. There are conflicting reports. If she was release in August this year it would be in parole into the custody of family in Bali. She wouldn't be going home. Her sentence at this stage is due to finish ( 17 with the five years from this news and previous two years from good behaviour. Likely other remissions brings it to 2015. The hope of parole but it is the first time a foreign prisoner has had parole in the situation. Who knows.

There's yet another twist has now been accused The embattled MP during his speech. of potentially misleading Parliament To further complicate matters to Speaker Peter Slipper the investigation was handed over who's currently facing of inappropriate behaviour. separate allegations and sent it back to the House. Mr Slipper rejected the matter, To save embarrassment, to let it through. the government eventually agreed joins us now from Canberra. Independent senator Nick Xenophon Are you keeping up yet? Was it embarrassing that Peter Slipper was asked to judge Craig Thompson? A good example of how the political system is being run? It shows the level of chaos here in Canberra. It will go o a privilege said committee as I understand it that comprises members of both sides. Tony Windsor, the Independent member on that committee. Let's not prejudge it but the privileges committee is a pretty thorough process and the saga will continue. Look, Craig Thomson is now accused of lying about several incidents during that address to parliament. So following those allegations and the ones against Mr Slipper, you are now calling for a national anticorruption to be established. What could that national anticorruption commission achieve? It could achieve a lot. Christine Milne from the greens Collette for this last year. There is an anomaly New South Wales, Western Australia, Queensland and soon other states will have anticorruption bodies. We don't have one at a federal level, MPs, federal public servants should be subject to the same rules at other states with an anticorruption watch dog with real teeth and penalties. We are at a stage where pollies are on the nose. A Morgan poll showed 97% of Australians believe pollies are on the nose. We need to claw back some veneer of respectability and to do that we need an anticorruption body. Terrible figures. You have said you won't support ingovernment's poky machines reforms. I am worried it will set back reform. Andrew Wilkie is an honourable man and acted in good faith. The government needs to not implement mandatory commitment but they won't make them dollar bet ready. Don't lose more than $ ready. Don't lose more than $120 an hour rb $ hour rb $1 a spin. The government won't look at that and that, to me, is, a bit suss. Thank you very much for your time. Thank you. In one of the biggest shake-ups in the history of Qantas it will split its international and domestic services from July 1 this year. The domestic arm of the airline has been propping up the international side of the business which has been losing money. It follows Monday's announcement that 500 jobs at Qantas will go. So, what's behind the shake-up? Aviation expert Neil Hansford joins me. Good morning. Why the business split now? Why the reason for the split now? Why the reason for the split now? It has Why the reason for the split now? It has been has to be done David because you have got a very good business in the domestic business, in fact an excellent business being held bye-bye a bad business, the international business with bad prospects. Does it mean we are paying too much for domestic and too little for overseas. Only 18% of the international passengers are carried by Qantas. We want an icon but don't want to put our muby where our mugt

mouth is. It could produce lower fairs, split off and more competitive. Lower fares on international routes? No, routes. Big thing, a lot of people asking here, anything happen to your international routes? No, domestic

points in this? If it is done properly the points company, which is very, very profitable, makes $ is very, very profitable, makes $350 million should be hived off as a separate company because it is worth over $ over $3 billion in an entity in itself. The jewel in the Qantas crown. It is run separatery. Virgin and Australia are two separate companies domestic and international. As a domestic company you have unlimited overseas share holding but domestic, you can have a maximum 49% maximum 49%. Could it be an excuse to flog off the international business. They have to reengineer the international business. I don't believe the government would allow the icon to die but it has to be remodel. They are with Jetstar? Yes, because Jetstar is carrying the leisure market but Qantas is still carrying the biggest percentage of the premium markets. The global slow down it is being hit. Qantas is servicing routes they shouldn't be. Hey have to be on key routes like London, Los Angeles. Routes like London, Los Angeles. Routes South Africa are not key to their London, Los Angeles.

A massive sandstorm that swept into Iraq yesterday is expected to cause chaos until Friday. The capital, Baghdad, has been blanketed in the thick sand, reducing visibility and grounding flights.

MAN: Chris, put the gun down! Chris, put the gun down. Put the gun down, Chris. Drop the gun. Get away from the gun. Put the gun down. joins us from Keilor East. Sunrise reporter Nuala Hafner Nuala, that sounded very dramatic. about how the stand-off ended? What more do we know Well, we think the real breakthrough came last night when the woman had been in the house, the whole came last night when the woman who time, we think it is his girlfriend who actually lives here, she was convinced to come out. Police say she was able to provide certain details that hemmed themselves this. How she came out is quite interesting. We know Binse had fired 12 shots. But at 6:30 last night we heard eight loud bangs that sounded like gun fire, but police said it was tactical noids and wouldn't go into detail. It was a ruse to get her out and she assisted. Just after 2 o'clock this morning things went down. Police demanded he came down and come out with nothing in his hands and come to the driveway but high came out with a gun and you heard what happened. They were forced to use non-lethal bean bag rounds and he has been looked over by paramedics and we understand he will be at St Kilda Road police station. Also, police wanted to make sure everyone was safe and they are happy with the outscome. We have am convenienceed a number of our residents but we have resolved it safely. That is our main aim, offender, the female and our are safe so to me that operation is offender, the female and our members successful. That is acting superintentant Stephen Mutton there. They are relieved how it has turned out. We can see police are behind you, do we know when the evacuated residents can return home? We have seen police leave throughout the morning but the area is still in lock down. They say they will be investigating and examing the area throughout today. They are expected to make an announcement in a couple of hours when residents can come back to their homes. It has been horrific couple of days. Speaking to back to their homes. It has been an them they saying them they say it is like out of a movie and they will be them they say it is like something happy it is over. we're following Our other major story of the Indonesian President is the decision clemency plea. to approve Schapelle Corby's has slashed 5 years Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono for drug smuggling. off her 20-year term in a Bali jail Corby could be released in 2015. When added to previous remissions, even sooner. Although she may be granted parole Joining us now from Bali Graeme Butler. is 'Today Tonight' reporter Good morning. when Corby will be released? Graeme, is it any clearer Morning, Kochie. Well, no, not at this stage. As you said, there is two possibilities here, one is that it could be 2015 when she serves out the remaindser of her three-year sentence now. The other possibility which is causing so much excitement, I guess in the Corby camp is that Schapelle could get parole and that could happen as early as August. But there is a big but there and that is foreigners, if ever, get given parole here in parole here in Indonesia. But for Schapelle there could be a get-out-of jail free card and that is her sister lives here with her family and Schapelle could use that to avoid the foreigner trap and get parole in Indonesia. Has Mercedes or anyone else in the family to say about indecision? Look, I anyone else in the family anything understand they are all a bit gob smacked. They are taking it in. They are really wanting to, I guess, see Schapelle released before they start cracking the champagne. But yes, they are taking it in. We are expecting Mercedes this morning to visit Schapelle at the jail. We are hoping she will have something to say. But announcement came quickly, late yesterday afternoon say. But announcement came fairly with some surprise. Schapelle lodged the clemency plea two years ago. It did catch everyone a bit off guard. So the family obviously are thrilled, thanking their supporters but just taking it in right now. Thank you for that, our foreign affairs editor Keith Sutor with us. We have learned through the the Indonesian justice system through the trial and how political and sensitive it is? I am very by the sudden reduction of five sensitive it is? I am very surprised years. As rule clemency isn't given to foreigners, especially she has consistently denied having taken the drugs into incountry. There might be a wider issue here, Australia has a number of young Indonesians in our jails or detention centres that are linked with the people smuggling. from the Australian Government's point of view we have concerned to linked with the people smuggling. So

get Schapelle get Schapelle corb outy out of Indonesia and the Indonesians want their boys back. The captains are on trial and the boys are being retained as witnesses. I think there st an element of trading here behind the scenes. The President doesn't normally grant clemency on drug matters. So this could lead to a prisoner exchange arrangement? Maybe that could help Schapelle get out on parole later this year That is a separate issue. Of course, negotiate aigs separate issue. Of course, negotiate separate issue. Of course, negotiations on a prisoner exchange program. But this is an informal deal that is going on. I expect Indonesians to say we are giving you deal that is going on. I expect the back Schapelle Corby, now give back the youngsters. From the Indonesian point of view she has served her purpose. They made an example of her. She has been a very traumatic example for Australians. Don't try to smuggle drugs into Indonesia. Also, they want to punish her but not damage her permanently. The worry they have got, spending so much time in a jail, a very brutal place in Indonesia, she out as an damaged individual. The place in Indonesia, she will come Indonesians don't want that. It is bad for pub lisdy and the tourist industry in industry in Bollywood like to -- in Bollywood like to get in Bali would like to get her out of the way. It is bad for publicity. A lot of things behind the scenes. The four sisters involved in an international custody dispute will remain in Australia for now. It follows a last-minute appeal to the High Court to stop them being returned to Italy. But relatives say they're still concerned the girls could be forced to leave soon. I fear it. I really, really fear it. I hope it's not the case because all we want in all of this is for the kids to have an opportunity for someone to speak to them and ask them how they're feeling and what their thoughts and feeling are about this. The girls were finally located by police on Monday night at a house on the Sunshine Coast. Sunrise correspondent Michelle Tapper is in Brisbane. Good morning. Run us through what happened in court. The girls were granted a slight reprieve, being told they were able to stay in Australia until the case is to stay in Australia until the case is heard. No-one knows when it will be. It is down if a mention on Friday, which means a time table will be set out over the next couple of weeks for hearings. It means the case could be postponed until August when the full bench of the High Court could sit in Brisbane. It anyone's guess when and if the girls will be deported to Italy. Court could sit in Brisbane. It is

Yesterday, the sisters made a separate appeal to the High separate appeal to the High Court with their barrister, Tony QV vii with their barrister, Tony Marius, QV They are the centre of a bitter international tug of war and they are young girls, do we know how they are coping? Not really. All we have been told is they are safe and not distressed. Also they are being held in an undisclosed location. But the great grandmother and great aunts have said when they were taken by authorities on Monday evening they were scared and frightened as you can imagine. The father's lawyer is yet to make an official statement other than saying their dad turned tloub on Monday so he is no doubt a happy man. Two sides to the story. Only time will tell if the girls are deported. Yes, long road ahead, here is Mel. Australia has won the second highest honour at the world's most prestigious gardening event - The Chelsea Flower Show. The entry from Fleming's Nurseries was awarded the Silver Gilt Medal overnight. Jason Hodges from 'Better Homes and Gardens' and the team from the nurseries for more than two weeks. They were pipped for best in show by this creation, called the Brewin Dolphin Garden. Jason joins me live from London. Congratulations, what was the inspiration? Tell us about your garden? How long it took to get it all together? Well, Mel, now you can tell people your garden is designed by Flower Show entry, which is pretty amazing because only seven people in your garden is designed by a Chelsea

Australia have done it. We got silver, so a bee's knee away from winning a gold medal, which is OK, just being here and sharing the experience with 12 people I hand picked to build the garden was a great experience. To me, people Ring Starr rr, celebrities, the royal family, it was like working in great experience. To me, people like

the trenches because it rained nearly every day for 18 days we were here. It has been the trip of a life time and probably the most important thing I have ever done. Klwell done and congratulations. You said it took two weeks to prepare it you were there. It took 12 month. O took two weeks to prepare it while year, that is a lot. 12 months in preparation. We had to bring every nut, bolt, skew, nail, blue stone, sandstone from Australia. Sent 40-foot containers with all our materials so we could make an Aussie garden and show how we live in the outdoors. The rest of the gardens were beautiful but they are gardens you look at and ours was one you look at and live in. It has garden and Pitta ovens and plunge pools

that you take for granted because we live in them. You should pass it to the Queen because she needs plunge pools and barbecues in the live in them. You should pass it on

How, what good decision making by you to get your garden done by him before he puts his rates up. Good call. Jason on the cheap. No more maintaining. Well done, good on him. On to something a bit sadder now. And making news - the death of Eugene Polley. There's a good chance you don't know the 96-year-old but you know his work. Eugene invented the wireless TV remote control in 1955. So could you live without it? And who controls the remote at your place? I think the TV remote is the modern day conch from 'Lord of the Flies'. He who has the remote has the power of the family, it is like the saber. It is usually my son, I don't know how to work it. I have hit that phase and say, " phase and say, "Could you do something about this." It is something about this." It is which remote. I am the only one during the day, the kids get it home work, early evening and John gets it at night when I go to bed. Pass the baton. He also invented the garage remote. Champion. He has made our lives easier. What an inventor. It's the phone call that could change everything. Do not move, we're about to ring this morning's $10,000 cash winner. I'm Koch. You are.
