Well, the Reserve Bank sees the economy in pretty good shape and saying economic growth is going to be close to longer term trends, inflation is under control. Here in Australia, with the resource continuing to grow stronger a bit of Australia, with the resource sector weakness in others and tentative improvement in housing. No signs Reserve Bank is chafing at the bit improvement in housing. No signs the to cut interest rates soon. If rates would fall we would have to have a significant downturn in China or the US or a major cise in Europe. We would have to see the Aussie dollar go through the roof for the Reserve Bank to provide stimulus to the economy and cut interest rates. But none of those things look like they are happening. It seems optimism is reining and looks like it will continue for months. One of those Goldilocks moment? Not too hot or cold Perfect way to describe it.

Queensland Government workers have once again taken to the streets to voice their discontent. Hundreds of firefighters and paramedics marched to State Parliament in Brisbane to stage a noisy protest against proposed changes to workplace agreements. Teachers also converged on Parliament to express their own grievances at the Government's latest employment offer. We're joined now by Sunrise correspondent Michelle Tapper. Good morning. Michelle, what are they all asking for? Good morning, guys. Well, this is the first time emergency service workers have protested together. Basically, they're protesting against cuts to their working conditions which they say could be life-threatening to the public. In particular they're concerned about the privatisation of public transport and have volunteer firefighter fill in at Metro Stations. They are not asking for huge pay increases, they are fighting to keep their working conditions the same or improved. As for the teachers, they are protesting against all the mass sackings that are about to happen across the bublic service. They are also disputing class sizes and agree with the pay conditions set forth by the Newman government which also disputing class sizes and don't

they say will strip them of benefits. This is a premier that a couple of weeks ago referred to Queensland as the Spain of Australia, for some strange, dodgy reason and has slashed and burned the state's costs. But he has also suffered a slump in the polls? Yes, that's right. He has definitely taken a hit. His disapproval rating has increased by 10% has increased by 10%. With the latest Roy Morgan poll having him sit at 36% sit at 36%. But having said that, his approval rating is still pretty high at 51 high at 51% high at 51%. It is not surprising, like you had, his approval ratings are dropping considering the huge cuts he has proposed right across all sectors of the public service. What does it mean for Queenslanders? Have the unions warned of more protests? Yes, they definitely have. The Newman Government said yesterday they will not budge. They are telling everyone all will be revealed after the September budget. So the unions are planning a rally, the very next day, on September 12th. You can bet your house it is not over. It is far from over. There will be many more protests and strikes throughout Queensland. Thank you, Michelle. Still ahead this Sunrise - 'bananagate'.

Making headlines this morning - calls for the government to impose a minimum price on wine. Heath experts say it would reduce the 813,000 alcohol-related hospital admissions each year and cut the 32,000 deaths blamed on booze annually. An inquiry's been told it's now possible to buy a bottle of wine for less than a bottle of water. So do we need a minimum price for wine or would that just make us more of a nanny state? Do we simply pay too much for water? Tell us what you think. Your you're our beverage correspondent. I only buy the good stuff. I'm staggered. 813,000 hospital admissions and 32,000 deaths, you know what? Let's do something. Also making news - the public outcry over the change to the taste of the banana Paddle Pop. It's come about because vegetable oil and whey have been taken out and cream added. No way! Since when do you take the chemicals out and put the good stuff in? Streets has told 'The Daily Telegraph' the changes were for nutritional reasons but customers say the new mix tastes rubbery and artificial. When do you buy a Paddle Pop for nutrition. I think you have an apple for nutrition, if you want a sugar hit you have a Paddle Pop. If it's not broken. Why fix it? It is an institution. Rubbery? Yes, it still smells like monkey vomit. I love it, it is cool. Does it taste different? Can you taste the cream and whisz the whey? Forget the mewtrition.

Three armed bandits are on the run after allegedly tying up three amusement park employees in Sydney's west and robbing them at gunpoint. The men threatened the group before forcing one of them into a car and dumping him on a motorway a short time later. Tonight we finished work and something happened here, some people took our boss and we got robbed. Earlier in the night there was a brawl at a Lakemba festival where a security guard was attacked with a crowbar. An independent review has found Fair Work Australia's probe into the Health Services Union was deficient. The review was conducted into the workplace tribunal and its former secretary, Craig Thomson, after concerns were raised that it took too long to investigate financial mismanagement. It is absolutely damning and scathing in every respect of that report and if anyone thinks they are going to go out and take civil action based on this report, well, I think they are living in dream land. Business advisory firm KPMG found Fair Work Australia was under-resourced and under-prepared for the investigation. And we'll speak to Craig Thomson live on Sunrise after 7:00. Queensland's Deputy Premier has lashed out at the unions, saying public service cuts are inevitable. Thousands of firefighters and ambulance workers rallied through the streets of Brisbane yesterday, fighting for better pay and conditions. I've taken on extra duties. All I've seen is demands at the negotiating table. I'm sick of it. Teachers also marched on Parliament over working conditions, their third rally in two months. Telstra is preparing for an angry backlash from workers and customers after announcing major job cuts. The telco has announced plans to slash 651 jobs at customer service and call-centre operations in Sydney, Melbourne and Queensland. It also plans to close call centres in some regional areas. Unions say consumers will also be left worse off. We could soon be paying more for a bottle of wine with a Government inquiry told to raise the price of drinks to reduce alcohol-related hospital admissions and death. The Preventative Health Agency has been asked to model a floor price on alcohol that could quadruple how much we pay for wine. Under the system, the cheapest 4-litre cask could cost $52. 813,000 people are admitted to hospital due to alcohol-related incidents in Australia every year. $52 a cask? Yes. Whooh! That's amazing. Big increase. Thank you, Nat. Finance new, Wall Street hit a 4 and a half year high before hitting the

Hawthorn spearhead Lance Franklin says he just wants to get back to playing footy after a 6-week injury layoff. Franklin admits he's frustrated by the ongoing conspiracy theories about his recent absence. It comes with playing AFL football these days Which is pretty sad and frustrating for my for example and my friends and the footy club to hear such stupe arumours. Franklin's confident he'll line up against the Swans this weekend and AFL boss Andrew Demetriou has warned it's only a matter of time until a player sues over false accusations. The Broncos will be strengthened by some much-needed reinforcements for Friday night's vital clash against reigning NRL premier Manly.

It is magic weather right now. 20-year-old Australian man Tyson Dagley has been released on bail in Hawaii. Tyson was charged with negligent homicide after a jet-ski accident on August 5 that claimed the life of a 16-year-old Californian girl. His father says they're just happy to have their son back after 12 days behind bars. He's a strong kid. Really don't know how he's gonna feel later on down the track but hopefully he comes through pretty good, hopefully. Tyson will be back in court on Friday. US bureau chief Mike Amor is in Honolulu covering the story. This is a tragic story. There were some pretty emotional scenes when Tyson was reunited with his family? Yes, good morning, Mel. Such a hard story to cover, I can tell you. Both families suffering greatly. You can only imagine the emotions of his mum and his dad, Anne and Allan who had flown from Brisbane to be here. When they finally got to see Tyson had been locked behind bars for 12 days, you could see the pictures of they finally got to see Tyson who

him rushing straight into their arms and not letting go. Of course, on the other side, we have a family grieveing for the 16-year-old Cristen Fonsaker and he had struck her, looking the wrong way, his girlfriend was talking pictures of him. A simple mistake, most of us admit it could be a mistake we could make. We are trying to work out what punishment Tyson deserves for all this. His parents hope they can take him so. Bail is set at $ him so. Bail is set at $100,000, obviously hard for Tyson's family, obviously hard for Tyson's family,sise it it for anyone to come up with that money? They are a family of limited means, a delightful family. I have spent a few days with them. They struggled to get the money. As a result they spent 12 days behind bars. A lot of people have been rallying to help them and they were able to scamble to get the money over the weekend and they were able to get him out and they can spend a few days with him before he has to geback to court, Mel. When he does, run us through the timeframe and the punishment he could face? Yes, the charge of negligent homicide carries a one-year jail term, maximum. He has already spent a number of days, as we mentioned, in jail. The question is will he be sentenceed to more? A lot of people here saying he has served enough time. He is expected in court on Friday, we think it may be dealt with then. Certainly, the parents are they can take Tyson home very Certainly, the parents are hoping quickly. There is a chance he may get another jail term so it may be delayed. Thank you, stay in touch, here is Kochie. It's 18 months devastated by a fatal earthquake. since the city of Christchurch was and left the city in ruins. The disaster killed 185 people as the crisis unfolded I was in Christchurch has followed closely. and it's a story Sunrise So it's great to learn will soon get underway. that rebuilding efforts has been unveiled in Sydney A new blueprint for the city Bob Parker, by the Mayor of Christchurch, tourism, Tim Hunter. and the head of Christchurch Bob and Tim join me now. Good morning. to get to this point? Bob, how much hard work has it taken It has been a really huge task. has been a massive issue. But I

guess the exciting thing for us we It has been a really huge task. It

are starting to put that stuff behind us and moving forward. Massive investment Massive investment. Haounts opportunities and I think -- huge opportunities and I think what comes from it is a scale of opportunity that is global. Tell us about the blue print? The highlights, a big greenspace city, a walking blue print? The highlights, a lovely pedestrian city, the Avon River park opened up, a fantastic attraction and brand new convention centre which we need to get investment in the city. The cathedral? We have which we need to get investment back not sure, still decisions to be made about that. But certainly the people of Canterbury would like to see the cathedral back. It is just iconic. The residents, Bob, first, have people left and what do they think? I think the majority of the city love the blueprint. They realise you need a framework for investment. We had to bolt that in and get real government and local government commitment behind that. We've got that. Now we are looking forward to a huge bubble of economic opportunity. The next five to ten years we will drive the GDP of New Zealand for up to 5% opportunities for investment are Zealand for up to 5%. The

stunning. But it is a fascinating process watching the city transform. That is where Tim's guys come in. We have seen a fall off in tourism, which is understandable but the safety levels are good everything is running outside of the safety levels are good and city, the usual events as part of the South Island fabric, but the transition is basically a clean itslait, rebuilding something that will be part of the twenty-first century. Jet star is one of our mates, and talks about deals to Christchurch. So safety levels are there, tourists are welcome. Come and spend your dollars, there is

lots to see. I think a lot of Australians are standing back saying we are not sure whether we should come. We want them to come. Things are in better shape, we have built a new visitor centre, new theatres, new trains set in terms of the great train journeys in and out of Christchurch. A new airport. A lot has happened since the earthquake. It is a hub, you fly into Christchurch, you have got Queen Charlotte walk, the 'Lord of the Rings'. Did you recognise Gandolf? The make-up was incredible. It great to hear you are back on your The make-up was incredible. It is feet and you want tourists there. Anything we can do, keep us up to date. You guys have been brilliant. Yes, safe travels. Is. Good luck to them. from suburbs of the Gold Coast Most farm animals will remain banned after the council there considering rejected a push for change. The proposal would've allowed pigs, lambs and other small farm animals onto smaller properties. The push came from councillor Lex Bell, the former mayor, who's famous for owning a pig named Oink in the '90s. His only victory was approval for chickens to be kept on smaller blocks. So was it the right decision? Mark Beatty is from the RSPCA. He joins me from Brisbane. Michael, would the Gold Coast have been turned into a zoo of pigs if this had been passed? Well, I don't think so. I actually had personal experience with Oink, who was a very pleasant animal. And Lex is a very nice guy. I can understand where he was coming from. But having said that, the main, well, one of the main problems the RSPCA face is livestock on smaller blocks. Owned by people who've had no experience in looking after livestock whatsoever. As we all know, possibly some people shouldn't have children, let alone animals. So there was a danger that if this situation wasn't monitored closely, if everything wasn't looked at on an individual basis, then there have been problems. But with a individual basis, then there could responsible owner who will, who was aware that you had to provide supplementary feed to the animals to the animals, then it probably supplementary feed to the animals or could have worked. But having said that, it could also have created a

major haic, I get you -- headache you could say for the council and the RSPCA. But in certain circumstance it could have worked quite well. One argument against allowing farm animals it could have led to an infestation of vermin. Are other councils considering this? No, take pigs for example, pigs are a very clean animal. Without going into details, a pig, in a small area will actually do its business in one part of its area and keep the rest of it clean. So no, I certainly don't think so. I think from a vermin point of view, no. So from the obvious, dogs and cats and vermin point of view, no. So apart fish, what are the best pets for the suburbs? Well, it depends on what you, depends what you're into, really. You know, some people do have ducks, there's chooks for example, although in the suburbs of most cities you can't have roosters amongst those chooks. Some people now, you know, with the correct permits have small reptiles. You know, there is a vast range of animals you can still have. But certainly, to most, the most popular still remains dogs and cats, no doubt about that. OK, thank you very much for your time.

The news was reported by ABC News here in America who said they had a source close to Tony who said this. This is the third time in a week they got a fact wrong. They maybe need to hire a fact checker and we need to have our thoughts and prayers with the family. Is there any explanation for his actions then? For Tony Scott's actions? Not at this point. He did leave a note in his car, his Prius and a note in his office. But we don't know what it said.

They've taken out the vegetable oil and whey and replaced it with good old-fashioned cream. But we'll begin with the news of this Wednesday. Independent MP Craig Thomson says he feels vindicated after a review found flaws in Fair Work Australia's investigation into the Health Services Union. Seven's political correspondent Alex Hart joins me now. Good morning. Alex, what did the report find? Morning, Nat. Well this report by auditing firm KPMG was carried out to why why Fair Work Australia took so long, three years and the findings are damming. It found they were under prepared, under resourced and unqualified to carry out such an investigation. It found some of the potential evidence had been over looked. Craig Thompson quickly seized on the findings last night to claim he had been vindicated and the review would make it impossible for any court action to proceed against him. Take a I've consistently said from the start that this whole investigation is flawed - it's a series of allegations and accusations on which conclusions have been based. The Government didn't back in the claims saying it was a matter should be resolved in the courts but claims saying it was a matter that it did seize on the fact there was no political interference in the review as the opposition had claimed. The union representing Telstra workers is warning consumers will suffer after the telco announced major job cuts across the country. Telstra is planning to slash 422 full-time staff as it makes changes to customer service operations. For a company which prides itself on being Australian, this is a huge blow to its workers. # And sing with one voice. # 651 people employed at Telstra and its agencies will lose their jobs. 235 staff will go from Melbourne, 174 from Sydney, the rest from two call centres that will shut down in Lismore in northern New South Wales and Townsville in North Queensland. Losing your position in a capital city has an impact but it's certainly is a different story when it's in a regional centre. For many, it came as a quite a shock and very disappointed and very sad. The national carrier is now preparing for the fallout from confirmation some jobs will move to the Philippines. Telstra says recent changes to its contract with Foxtel mean its television partner will now be handling more customer inquiries. A man has been dumped on a Sydney motorway after being kidnapped and robbed at gunpoint overnight. Armed bandits tied up three men at an amusement park business in Clyde before forcing one of them into a car. They escaped with a significant amount of cash. Earlier, two men were attacked with a crowbar during a brawl at a Lakemba festival. A man has been stabbed during an attempted armed robbery in Bayswater North, in Melbourne's east, early this morning. It's believed a man entered the service station just after 3:00 and demanded the attendant hand over cash. The worker was then stabbed in the upper body before the offender ran off. The 25-year-old victim was taken to Royal Melbourne Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Thousands of angry workers in Queensland have taken to the streets of Brisbane demanding better pay and conditons from the State Government. I'm joined now by Sunrise correspondent Michelle Tapper. Good morning, Michelle. What's the State Government saying? This is not sounding very popular. Morning, Nat, well, despite about 800 very angry emergency service workers marching on parliament yesterday demanding their working conditions not be cut, because they say they are life-threatening to the public, the Newman Government refusing to budge. They say they will continue their radical cost public, the Newman Government is

cutting across the public service, as well as not turning back on their plans to cut 20,000 jobs from the public service. So the Newman Government says all will be revealed when the September 11th budget is handed down and the unions are definitely handing ahead for that, with protests already planned for September 12th, the very next day. Thank you very much, Michelle. Wheelchair rugby player and 4-time Paralympian Greg Smith will carry the Australian flag into the London 2012 Paralympic Games. The announcement was made at a special team ceremony at Cardiff Castle in Wales. He says it's an honour. The Games start in eight days. And Melbourne is welcoming home our Olympians today with a parade through the city. We'll check in with rower Drew Ginn as he prepares to march. Nat, Wall Street down 68 points overnight. Down from a good string of positive gains.

European markets are up. A bit of a surprise with the United Kingdom budget came in with a deficit of just under $ just under $1 billion. That's because company tax receipts have dropped 20% dropped 20%, really biting the recession there. Speaking of the markets and the impact on your superannuation fund, we are seeing a nice bounce-back. This is the medium balanced option for superannuation fund, month of July up 1. July up 1.1% July up 1.1%. For the rolling 12 months, ahead by 3% months, ahead by 3%, three years, 5.5% per annum. Now the Australian stock market closed with a 3 and a half month high yesterday. So we had a bit of optimism return to the share market but as I keep stressing, it is the Northern Hemisphere problems, when they start to get back to work, all the problems will reach the headlines again. Here is Beretts with sport. Thank you. New Blues coach Laurie Daley says he's determined to finish the job that was started by his former team-mate Ricky Stuart. New South Wales legends Brad Fittler and Trent Barrett were among those overlooked in favour of Daley and New South Wales players have endorsed the appointment. Obviously, a player that has achieved a lot in the game as a player and coach and knows a lot about State of Origin and what it's about. Meanwhile, former NRL boss David Gallop is the new boss of Australian soccer. He's replacing outgoing FFA chief executive Ben Buckley. Western Bulldogs ruckman Will Minson is free to play this weekend despite being found guilty of stomping on Swans midfielder Kieran Jack at the AFL Tribunal. Minson argued the incident was accidental and his 1-match suspension was reduced to a reprimand. And Fremantle has been cleared by the AFL over the contentious late inclusion of Aaron Sandilands in Sunday's encounter with Richmond. Sandilands replaced Jonathon Griffin who injured his groin in the warm-up. The Wallabies have suffered another injury blow ahead of the second Bledisloe Cup test against the All Blacks in Auckland. Prop Sekope Kepu has been ruled out after hurting his knee at training. Skipper David Pocock will be sidelined for at least three months following knee surgery. Quade Cooper remains in contention for a recall to the starting side. There you go. Thank you very much, let's go to James, he's got the weather this morning. He's brave? Yes, thank you, Mel, I have gone from weather man to ninja. You weather this morning. He's being

never know when you could be under attack. You must be prepared at all times. Look out. (dramatic music plays) times. Look out. (dramatic music plays). No! I'm OK... (all laugh) Oh... That's why they get more than one take in the movie. Sometimes, things can go wrong. Great. Let's look at the weather forecast. Crouching tiger. Sunrise weather to you by Claratyne. (dramatic music) (dramatic music). Alright, Mel and Kochie-San, that is the life of a ninja, see you back on the Gold Coast in half an hour. Thank you, James Tobinator, there you go, he is fierce and scary. We will go back to him in half an hour. Serious problems have been highlighted in Fair Work Australia's investigation of financial irregularities at the Health Services Union involving its former secretary Craig Thomson. The independent review found the workplace tribunal was under-resourced and under-prepared It also concluded there was a lack of adequate documentation and the investigators did not consider all potential sources of information. We're joined now by Federal Independent MP and former Health Services Union secretary Craig Thomson. Workplace Relations Minister Bill Shorten says the review only looked at the processes used by Fair Work Australia, not the conclusions of the Health Services Union report. Have a look. As this government has said all along in my eight months as Industrial Relations Minister, and my predecessors have said - the matter of who did what will ultimately be tested in the courts. That is the appropriate place for this to be tested. Why do you believe this report clears you? Well, what it's done is totally discredited the whole inquiry Fair Work did which is absolutely discredited the whole inquiry that consistent with what I said to parliament when I addressed them and what I consistently said all the time in relation to this issue. There were witnesses they didn't interview, documents they have looked at they didn't look at, interview, documents they should they weren't equipped to conduct a proper review. While they asked to look at the conclusions, proper review. While they weren't the whole process they were asked to look at and made 31 separate recommendations where the process was totally flawed. It makes it difficult for anyone to say they can rely on rely difficult for anyone to say they can rely on the conclaougs that -- conclusions that came from the process. But how can a report that hasn't gone into enough detail clear you? Surely it is open to more questions in what has been a long investigation? Well the conclusions of KPMG are consistent with what New South Wales police said, there were no issues of fraud I need to of KPMG are consistent with what the

answer, Public Prosecutions reached the same conclusions at that. There have been answer, the Commonwealth Director of

a whole series of reports and inquiries which have all reached the same conclusion. The one that didn't reach that conclusion was this Fair Work report and now KPMG have there are serious problems with that and that explains why there is a Work report and now KPMG have said

difference in conclusions reaches am Do you expect to face court over the allegations, including union funds for escorts? We have the Victorian police to conclude their investigations. I think it is a difficult ask for anyone to say are you going to look at civil prosecutions based on the Fair Work report now their own internity investigation has said the investigation is flawed, consistent with what I said in parliament where I pointed out the problems, the mistakes, the lack of evidence that showed no wrong doing on my part. showed no wrong doing on my part. So that showed no wrong doing on my part. So

that is a difficult thing to do. It is up to Fair Work Australia where they want to take it now. Do you think Bill Shorten is correct? This is where the courts should be looking now? Ultimately all these things could end up in court but people need to make decisions whether it should go to court. I wouldn't want to be the lawyer prosecuting the report when my own organisation has slammed the report. If it does go to court you sound fairly confident. You haven't come out being confident too soon, have you? Look, there is still come someway to go, as I have said. We are waiting for the Victorian police to finish but in relation to the issue, it is consistent with what I said throughout the matters, that I have done no wrong doing and every other investigation has vindicated the position. This is the one out one and KPMG have shown how flawed it is. Should the ALP take you back? Can you recover from this? Can they recover from this? Well, let's get through the Victorian police issue. It is still a little early in the process for us to go through. What I'm kaepbstrating on -- concentrating on is that the people of the central of the central coast get the best representation and the best resources they can. I will do that whether I am independent or a Labor member. Thank you. Telstra is set to axe 420 full-time and 230 associated positions as well as closing call centres. The biggest job cuts are in Melbourne and Sydney and call centres in Townsville and Lismore will be shut down following a 20% drop in call volumes. Staff affected by the cuts will be invited to apply for other roles within the company. This decision is already having a huge impact on the ground. I'm joined now by Townsville Mayor Jenny Hill. Good morning. Jenny, 126 people could be set to lose their jobs in Townsville. How have locals taken the news? Good morning, David. Look, we're angry up here. We need these local jobs. We are trying to develop and grow the region. Townsville is considered the second capital of Queensland and we want the companies to base themselves here, not just in Melbourne or Sydney. Are there enough jobs in the region to absorb those made redundant? How is the region going? Is it still solid economically or struggling? It is solid at the moment. Everyone is waiting to see if the big boom will happen and the problem is that will be determined by prices in waiting to see if the big mining

China and India. We need to keep the jobs here. We are getting the NBN here in the area. We want the people working in the mining industry but every industry. We want to grow the region. We can't grow if companies like Telstra, Australian companies don't have faith in us. Any other companies that want to set up call centre facilities, you've got the infrastructure and the NBN going through, we wish you all the best there. Morning David. Still on jobs - there have been more protests in Queensland, with workers fighting for better conditions. Nearly 800 firefighters and paramedics staged a demonstration out the front of State Parliament, making sure they could be heard inside. (CHEERING AND HORNS TOOT) Teachers also rallied again to voice their discontent with the Government's latest employment offer. I'm joined now by Gary Bullock from the United Voice union. Good morning. Gary, what did yesterday's protest achieve and what does your union want? What Well, for United Voice, we ambulance officers throughout Queensland. We joined forcewise the Well, for United Voice, we represent

fire fighters union because the cut backs that Campbell Newman's government is going to cut will affect the direct services, not money or pay, the direct services to Queenslanders. For both fire and amble ans they are talking about casualisation out in remote Queensland. How the National Party can vote for it, I can't understand. Where we have full-time paramedics at the moment, they are proposing going back to the honourary system so the farmer or the person working at the petrol station gets the triple 0 call and puts on the ambulance shirt and is an honourary and trained to a first-aid level. It is not the service Queensland wants or need and they are talking about the same thing for the fire service. These cuts are going too far. It is about Campbell Newman telling everyone we are going to be $ everyone we are going to be $1 billion in debt, which is a lie. That is on projections, if nothing else changes, by 2020. I am sure Kochie can give advice on what the economy is doing. Do you concede something needs to be done. We are not exactly in surplus? Look we are not in surplus. Queenslanders understood that and make decisions at the polls but we are talking about emergency services. These guys put their lives on the line and go and save Queenslanders. Another change they want to make is taking away their consultation rights. So for fire fighters, they have a say around the table with the fire department about what uniforms they wear. It is not just about how good it looks, it is the fire-retardant nature of the uniform. There have been attempts to buy overseas cheap uniforms that don't meet the standards we have here in Australia and it means fire fighters' are put at risk for saving a couple of bucks. It is just crazy. OK, and it means fire fighters' lives

Garry, I know you have more protests planned, September 12, thank you for talking to us this morning. Thanks very much. Victoria is looking at tough new laws to deal with bikie gangs and underworld syndicates. Sunrise correspondent Nick Etchells joins us from Melbourne. Nick, how tough would these laws be? Well, they are tough. First of all, they are sort of being structured as generic anti-gang laws but they are primarily aimed at bikie gangs. It allows a court, once satisfied members of a group are using it to pursue criminal actiskties, they allows a court, once satisfied the

will be able to declare it a criminal organisation and ban it and place restrictions on the members. The might be a ban on meeting together, it might together, it might be aben on wearing club patches. Once the declaration is made, police will be able to act on anyone who breaches the restrictions and seize motorcycles, seize property, destroy clubhouses so they are fairly broad and strong powers. The backdrop of course is the concerns by the police and State Government here and State Government here bikie gangs have been using Victoria as a neutral Switzerland, because it doesn't have the antiassociation laws. When is the crack down likely to start? In other states, antibikie laws have been successfully challenged by bikies? Exactly. They will reportedly be tableled in the next few weeks but because the have been challenged in New South Wales in the High Court, they are next few weeks but because the laws

very concerned to make sure it dozen happen here. One of the ways they are doing that is to satisfy, once the court is satisfied the members are using the organisation not for any other reason but to commit criminal acts then the court will do that. That is the difference between that and the interstate laws and this one should be water tight. Thanks, here is Beretts. The celebrations continue this morning for our Olympic athletes. They'll receive another rock-star reception at today's welcome-home party in Melbourne's Federation Square. Australia's 3-time Olympic gold medal rower Drew Ginn is there. Good morning, Drew. You missed the last welcome-home celebration after Beijing because you'd just had back surgery. In Sydney you had a chest infection. It has been a long time coming should be pretty good? Yes, it has been a while. Looking forward to It has been a long time coming and

parade. That's eight years since have been in a welcome home parade. been a while. Looking forward to the

parade. That's eight years since I Worth the wait, I had am sure. Tell us about it. As you reflect over London, what are your thoughts? Beretts, for me, it is getting it in all in perspective. We have taken a few days now, we crossed the finish line in London. The first thing is you are exhausted and emotional. Yet, you have got a silver medal. You are proud of representing your country well but you do have the natural reactions, having that with the guys and discussing it later and having the perspective later on of the achievement mism. You should be proud. It was one of the great races of the Olympic in London. How great is it to get out and share it with family and friends and the people of Melbourne? It has been fascinating. Over the last couple of days I have been getting messages from people who will come out. For Melburnians, particularly for the young watching it on TV, I am doing school visits, it is the young kids in particularly for the young kids

Australia who have been supporting us. So get down to Federation Square and support the Olympians. I know Sydney did well and Melbourne will do well, if not better. You are a champion, enjoy the day. He is a champion. A special man. Kids, get out and register for summer sports, the athletics, the rowing. Yes, we are right in the process of that, I am sure you are the same. Yes. This morning we've been talking about the public outcry over the change to the taste of the banana Paddle Pop. It's come about because vegetable oil and whey have been taken out and cream added. You know curds and whey rr. The same whey? Streets has told 'The Daily Telegraph' the changes were for nutritional reasons but customers say the new mix tastes bubbery and artificial. So, has the taste of the banana Paddle Pop changed for the better or worse? Beretts, you've sampled the new one. Has much changed? I am going to be honest, I can't tell the difference, I am a Paddle Pop lover, and it is a tradition. But people on the Soap Box say it is less creamy and more artificial and icy. Less creamy. Go figure. Can you investigate it further? I am going back to the fridge. You need to have an old one and a new one, maybe you will get the flavour? I like the way you are thinking. A blind Paddle Pop tasting? I'm your man. In your very capable hands.

Independent MP Craig Thomson says it's too early to ask the Labor Party to take him back despite saying he's been vindicated by a new report. Auditors found Fair Work Australia's investigation into the Health Services Union was flawed due to unqualified staff and a lack of resources. This is totally consistent with what I have said throughout these matters - that I've done no wrongdoing and every other investigation has vindicated that position. This was the one out one. He's ruled out asking to rejoin the ALP until he's cleared by police. Unions say Telstra customers will be worse off after the telco announced major job cuts across the country. Telstra has announced 651 jobs will go at customer service and call-centre operations in Sydney, Melbourne and Queensland. It also plans to close call centres in some regional areas. Losing your position in a capital city has an impact but it's a different story when it's in a regional centre. Outsourced jobs in Sydney and Melbourne would shift offshore with some positions going to the Philippines. A man's being treated in hospital after he was stabbed in an attempted armed robbery in Melbourne's east. The attacker entered the service station at Bayswater North just after 3:00am and demanded the attendant hand over cash. The 25-year-old employee was stabbed in the chest before the man ran off. Police are reviewing security vision. Three armed men are on the run after a carnival ride owner was forced into a car and later dumped on the side of highway in Sydney last night. The men allegedly tied up the owner and two other staff members Earlier in the night there was a brawl at a festival in Lakemba. Police won't say if the two incidents are linked. Sydney's Fashion Festival got off to a cheeky start last night with models wearing very little on the catwalk. Several underwear brands opened the event with Jennifer Hawkins among the models showing off what's big in smalls. The fashion festival runs until the end of the week. Not sure what you do with the blindfold. Well, you've read the

book. I'm hosting a masquerade ball on Saturday night, for Jeans for Genes. The black thing? Perfect. Ring Jen. Do you need some lingerie too? Hawthorn spearhead Lance Franklin says he just wants to get back to playing footy after a 6-week injury layoff. Franklin admits he's frustrated by the ongoing conspiracy theories about his recent absence. It comes with playing AFL football these days which is pretty sad and frustrating for my family and my friends and the footy club to hear such stupid rumours. Franklin's confident he'll line up against the Swans this weekend and AFL boss Andrew Demetriou has warned it's only a matter of time until a player sues over false accusations. The Broncos will be strengthened by some much-needed reinforcements for Friday night's vital clash against reigning NRL premier Manly. Josh McGuire returns from an eye problem and Alex Glenn has recovered from a hamstring strain. They're hopeful Ben Te'o will play despite a nagging groin injury. The Broncos are desperate to snap a 5-game losing streak. Australian cycling team GreenEDGE is celebrating more Grand Tour success after Simon Clarke took out stage four of the Tour of Spain. Clarke had plenty left in the tank at the end of the mountainous stage, powering past German Tony Martin to take the win. It's the 26-year-old's first victory in 4 years as a professional. They are just firing, GreenEDGE, they've had a gripping year. Let's go to James Tobin, he has been a ninja and a stuntman, now he is back as motor bike rider? Wheeh! He teaches motor bikes at Australian Stunt Academy. He assures me, this is the way you normally teaches motor bikes at the

Usually, I have the ladies. So, please, this is very special occasion. He reckons he can teach me how to do this. I wish I had a blindfold, Nat. He had you insisted, James. Let's look at the forecast. You did good, man. Brother. Sunrise weather to you by Claratyne. A low and front are spreading showers and storms across southern WA. A weak trough is generating showers in south-east Australia. Dry northerly winds ahead of the trough are affecting Queensland and New South Wales. Alright, are you ready? I'm ready, I'm excited.
