Australian farmers say they have been neglected in een neglected in the election campaign. Australia has joined the United States and Britain in stepping up the war of words with Syria. It comes amid increased speculation that the United States is planning to launch a limited attack after last week's alleged use of chemical weapons. UN weapons inspectors are expected to return to the scene of the chemical attacks later today after coming under fire during the first visit overnight. It was a white knuckle ride for the weapons inspectors who ended up collecting more than just samples. One of the cars taking a direct hit from unknown gunmen as the they rebel territory. As well as speaking to survive as they gathered physical evidence. The task is to ascertain whether chemical weapons were used here last week. They will not draw any conclusions with regard to who might have used them. On that front the United States already appears to have made up its mind. It was the Syrian regime, it says, and it will pay. Make no mistake, Barack Obama believes there must be accountability for those who would use the world's most heinous weapons against the world's most vulnerable people. most vulnerable people. Nothing today is more serious and nothing is receiving more serious scrutiny. Using the strongest language yet, Mr Kerry described what happened last week as a moral obscenity. The Prime Minister also talking tough following a talking tough following a phone conversation with Barack Obama earlier today. We have discussed how to chart a way forward. The international community is increasingly concluding that chemical weapons were used and that the Assad regime is in all probability responsible.

In an interview with Russian journalists, Bashar al-Assad has again denied involvement and Russia has warned the United States and its allies not to attack Syria unilaterally.

Palestinian politicians have called the shootings by Israeli soldiers and act of aggression.

For James Hird, a 12 month suspension from the very game that made the Brownlow Medallist a legend. It's been more than 200 days since the story first broke, and much to the AFL's displeasure it is a story that has dominated the season, overshadowing most of football's on field exploits.The year we have had has just been really difficult, and you wouldn't want to see too many people to see too many people go through what we have gone through. h what we have gone through.Eddie McGuire revealing some of the thoughts canvassed in last weeks meeting of club presidents ng of club presidents that backed the AFL's actions.It wasn't 17 versus one, it was 17 saying to the Bombers the AFL commission works and we need it.

These lab technicians work for the Japanese farmers union, not the government, after a couple of disastrous years when Japanese consumers, scared of radioactive fallout, wouldn't buy the regions produce. Farmers are fighting science with signs. Now everyone's harvest gets tested. The crops get certified, and sales are improving. The farmers union says this year 99% of crops tested from Fukushima have shown zero extra radiation. But that's from land which people are permitted to cultivate. Closer to the damaged nuclear plant the future is darker. Villages are still empty. Farming here would be possible for decades. Radiation levels are to hide. But some residents will eventually come back. Simply they have no other assets or no place to go -- too high. This doctor runs a research project calculating how much radiation people have already absorbed, so they can make an informed decision about returning home.We Japanese have to live in contamination.

Both the NSW government and defence experts have criticised the plan. SBS senior reporter Lee Hatcher is at Garden Island. That shows there's quite a history to this, isn't the? is, isn't the?Lee Link there have been arguments over this prime priests of Sydney Harbour real estate for decades, but the island's history and the Navy's plays here go much further back than that.Within 10 days of the arrival of the first fleet Garden Island was used. By the mid18 50s planning was under way to set up a naval base there. The Commonwealth took over in 2002. 4000 work on the base, nearly 3000 in associated industries. The government want to ship operations from here and divide it between Sydney, Townsville, Cairns, Darwin and Perth. in and Perth.It would help open up Garden Island for new uses such as greater public green spaces on Sydney 's for sure. It could create new jobs in Sydney, Perth, Darwin, Townsville and cares Cairns.The major security challenges are to the North, north-east and north-west, far from Sydney. But yet the NSW government says the move would be devastating with the loss of $470 million a year for the economy of the state. Only in May this year the defence white paper ruled against relocating to Brisbane because of the $6 billion cost.Despite the consideration in the defence white paper, despite the consideration of the former prime minister and defence Minister, we now have a thought bubble coming that will devastate at least 4000 families across this city.If you were to shift Garden Island to Brisbane that means that ships can get to Asia 24 hours faster. The only forces that need to get need to get somewhere in that kind of time frame our special forces travelling by air. For all the crises we will see in the future, having an extra 24 hours is of marginal benefit compared to the enormous cost shifting operations. Sydney Harbour is the only deepwater port on the Australian East Coast, the thought of moving Garden Island to Brisbane is nonsense.But the cruise industry sees an opportunity.Tourists want to visit this magnificent harbour, the most beautiful in the world. What would be a disaster for tourism is if we have to put a no vacancy sign at North Head during the peak during the peak of the cruise ship industry. Sydney Harbour needs new facilities and ew facilities and Garden Island is the only realistic is the only realistic option.If the government is returned a three person task force would consider this plan for two years, and if it then gets the go-ahead the move would be complete by 2030. The mortgage belt seat of Boothby in Adelaide's southern suburbs is the most marginal Liberal seat in the country. For a while the electorate looked like falling to the Labor Party for the first time since 1949. But then Kevin Rudd rolled Julia Gillard, the hometown hero. 98,000 voters live here and just 100 of them could change Boothby's political fate.The margin will vary depending on where you look, some would say no .6 and some would go no .6, we will go 0.6 for the sake of this. That's only a couple of hundred votes that I need to make up.It is Annabel Di considers' second tilt at Boothby, the margin further narrowed by a margin change. This is typical of middle-class suburbs around the nation.We want to see a healthy economy in Australia.The costs of electricity, wages, super, work cover.It should be Labor's best chance for a win.If you can pick one up k one up against the odds in SA that takes pressure off what's going on for Labor in the other states.

Unfortunately for them Kevin Rudd came along and knifed the hometown girl.Tony Abbott's pledge to spend $500 million fixing a local million fixing a local traffic bottleneck also gave him a bounce. Accusations of dirty tricks were quick to focus surfaceit was a deliberate lie designed to damage me. It was actively promoted by the Labor Party to journalists. It was way beyond a personal attack. It was a disgrace.I knew nothing of it, I don't condone it. We have fixed it and moved on.Even though Boothby is the most marginal Liberal Street as we go into the election, I suspect it will be slightly safer for Andrew after the election.The former GP quietly hoping for a health role in an abbot government. One World News Australia tomorrow night, a man and his hat. Bob Katter's secret weapon, making friends and seeking votes on the campaign trail. Australia's farmers say they have been ignored in the election campaign. Even the National party, traditionally the staunch defenders of the bush, has been quiet on agriculture. The National Farmers Federation has warned leaders they risk alienating primary producers because of the lack of ause of the lack of policy. 2012 was the year of the farmer. 2013, it seems, is not. It is week three in the election campaign and farmers are feeling left out, saying they are being ignored by the major parties.I've gone past being angry, I'm cynical about it. Farmers are certainly very surprised politicians are so afraid of the F-word, farmers. There's very little mention of agriculture or our industry.Farmers like Michael Champion,rmers like Michael Champion, who has a farm in Robertson in NSW, it is a huge letdown.It surprises me even the National party, a party supporting farmers, can't get on board and talk about some of those things, even if it is only five or 10%. Farming is increasingly tough. There's an ageing workforce. They work longer hours than most, but the average disposable income is considerably lower.ble income is considerably lower. And the workload is increasing. By 2050 the world 's production of food will need to increase by 70% to meet global demand. Bob Katter says Australia is heading in the wrong direction if it wants to help meet that shortfall.Because they're running around the telling us we're going to be the food bowl of Asia, somewhere between seven and 15 years your ven and 15 years your country will be a net importer of food.The country 's top farmers lobby group has released a scorecard rating the policies of the major parties and the Greens across five key areas. None scored well. The Greens scored the lowest. Labor scored just eight. But the Coalition, including the farmer friendly Nationals, fell behind Labor.It may be the first time that Labor has done better than the Coalition on agriculture policy and I welcome that.The shadow agriculture minister didn't return our calls, but Barnaby Joyce says it's too early to judge his party.The Coalition policy has not been released yet. I do think it was a bit rich that people did an assessment before we have released the policy.Why has the National party not released any policies when you're supposed to be the party for farmers?I have seen it, and it's coming out in the next couple of days.He hopes that is not too late to reassure Australia's 300,000 agricultural workers that he's still on the side. -- the side.

Time now fall the days of sports news with Craig Foster. And the Essendon 's supplement scandal continues to dominate headlines. They are out of the finals after a deal was reached with the AFL. We spoke to Gareth Boreham a short time ago regarding today's proceedings at AFL headquarters. After a long way there appears to be some resolution this evening with the AFL expected to shortly announce details of those sanctions against Essendon. Tellingly assistant coach Mark Thomson has left the talks this evening, conceding the bombers won't be playing in next month 's finals -- Bombers. Essendon looks set to be the first club in history to be stripped of its premiership points. They will also face a multimillion dollar fine and also the loss of crucial draft picks. As for James Hird, details of his penalty appeared to be bogged down in legal argument but he does face a 12 month ban from the game. Other officials, including Bruce Reid, the doctor, football manager Danny Corcoran, and Bomber Thomson himself also face bans and fines. Meanwhile the Ngatai Mexes he is happy to have silenced his critics after a five set comeback against Albert Ramos at the US open -- meanwhile Bernard Tomic says he is happy to have.

the Arctic contains vast resources of oil and gas. It's also home to some of the most magnificent animals on the planet. Conservationists warned the survival could be in peril after Russia's plans were exposed about getting resources. We have been to investigate. We started from hatching, a county inside the Arctic Circle. From there we headed even further north -- a town deep inside. And as we headed further polar bears patrolled the shores. The Bears and the huge walruses are well adapted to the cold, but the world is changing around them.

Tracey Emin is one
of Britain's most famous artists.

For over 20 years her work
has shocked the world

as she explores
her most private feelings

of love, loss and sexual adventure.

Because I work with, within my art,
because I work constantly...

going back to my own past,

I thought it might be
quite interesting

to see where the past
actually came from.

But now I'm really nervous.
And I'm not sure
if I'm doing the right thing.

The fact
that I'll never have children

means that I'm the end of my line.

After me, I stop. I'm the last
of my kind. There is no more.

If, when I find out that
I come from the most

loving, simple, ordinary,
lovely suburban family

that anyone
could ever want to come from,

I think I'll slit my wrists!

I think it will just
drive me insane.

I'd think "How the (BLEEP)..."
Sorry.

"How the hell did that happen?"

Tracey's art
takes many different forms.

Over the years she's become as much a
part of the spectacle as her work -

making her the bad girl
of British art.

Now at 48,

Tracey's first major retrospective
has just opened in London.

I'm at really good point
at the moment

and I have a massive museum show on
at the Hayward Gallery.

There's about 1000 visitors
a day going, which is fantastic.

For the first time in my life I've
had overall really good reviews

and a lot of positive response
about the work.

Tracey lives and works
in Spitalfields in East London.

She knows that her mother's roots
are in the East End.

But her father, Enver,
who passed away last year,

came from further afield.

My dad's Turkish-Cypriot.

His grandfather was from Africa,
from the Sudan.

He was a slave
in the Ottoman Empire.

He was given his freedom in Cyprus.

That's as far as I can go back
on my dad's side.

But, on the other hand,
my mum's family,

I don't know
anything about them except

they come from
the East End of London.

No one actually volunteered any
information while I was growing up.

You'd think people would say
"Oh, your great-grandfather..."
Or this or that.

But there was never any information.

My mum is so excited.

She's beside herself because
she doesn't know anything either.

Hi, Mum.
Hi, darling.

It's windy.
It's really windy out there.

How are you?
Good, thanks, yeah.
