Our exclusive with the star,
and a big surprise for his fans, on Thursday, September 19, 2013.

(SONG) # Reach out for the sunrise # Reach out for the sunrise. # Right across Australia,
this is Sunrise on Seven. Now, live from Brekky Central,
Kochie and Sam.

Hello. Jack Johnson has had
four number ones in Australia.

, Hello to jack Johnson, hello to you at home. He has had number 1s in Australia. you at home. He has had number 1s in Australia..Are you a bitten am moured with him.He makes me feel mellow. He makes me want to grab a guitar and head to the beach.All the songs sound the same though. There is a similar sounds.Remember when we were in Hawaii, it was great, he was there not.I wasn't there. I was working.I forget.At least you enjoyed jack Johnson in Hawaii. He drove down from the coast to say hello. Hopefully I will get to meet him one day.

And we know you love having him
on Sunrise - so don't miss him here next hour. Also this morning, we put another $20,000
up for grabs from Grant's Million Dollar Minute.

Do I sound like a game show host? Yes.Great, I'd love to fill in.

So let's get under way
with a Seven News update from Nat. Police are hunting a killer who stabbed a man
with a machete in front of children
in Sydney's west. Witnesses say

the victim had just collected
kids from school at Doonside when he got into a fight. He suffered a wound to the chest, and was pronounced dead
a short time later. A third person,
believed to be involved, is being treated in hospital. Police are yet to identify
a suspect. He's only been in power for one day, but Tony Abbott has already offended
Indonesia. A Foreign Affairs official
has slammed the PM for bringing in tough new
asylum seeker policies without consultation.

Instead of giving money to pay our police to do on your behalf, why don't you - we sit together and thinking about capacity building.

Mr Abbott is expected
to visit Jakarta within a fortnight. The ACT could become
the first Australian jurisdiction to legalise same-sex marriage. The territory's
minority Labor Government to the Legislative Assembly today. It's likely to pass both houses,
but lawyers say the Federal Marriage Act
will probably over-rule the laws. A police officer has been hurt
in a crash in Sydney early this morning. Paramedics were called to Rhodes
about 4:30am and treated the man at the scene. It's not yet clear
how the accident happened.

Victoria's Coroner is considering
whether there should be an inquest into the death of Melbourne
gang-land boss Carl Williams. He was killed by a fellow inmate
in a high-security prison in 2010. Williams' family wants a review, demanding to know why security
cameras inside weren't monitored and why it took so long
for staff to find his body. Calls are growing
for tougher restrictions of a popular painkiller following research
into recent deaths.

Drug toxesity was listed as the cause of death of a number of people

after misusing medication which
combines codeine and ibuprofen, The authors of the study say reports of improper use
of over-the-counter drugs are increasing. Thousands of parents will be forced to keep their
children home from school today after staff walked off the job
in Western Australia. Dozens of schools will be closed but the Premier says
striking won't achieve anything.

Liz Hurley has fuelled speculation
she's split with Shane Warne after apologising to her Twitter
followers for a lack of updates. She says she's sorry for her
silence on recent events.

Warne says they're not throwing
the towel in yet. We'll get to the bottom
of what's happening in their relationship,
soon on Sunrise.

I am not sure how we are going to do that but we are going to try. Right now, here is Kochie.Believe us, national, we will be there. Take a look at this graph. Can I go straight to the iPad. Guess when Ben Bernanke, the boss of the Federal Reserve made an announcement overnight? She1 o'clock.Do you think just before 4 o'clock, this morning. We will tell you what he said just shortly because he just turned the market on its head.Tell us now.The Dow is currently up. Let me just go through the rest of the graphic fl to our region yesterday. Quick, flip the graphic.

Look at that, just below 95 US cents. Let's go to party central

Savanth Sebastian is at Commsec. Morning, Savanth.
What was behind the Fed's decision?

It was off to the raises for the markets at 4 am this morning when Ben Bernanke effectively said that they are not going to be winding back they are not going to be winding back any of the stimulus, the market we thought the US Federal Reserve would have started buy pulling back their bond buying. They don't like the idea that long-term interest rates have been rising. We saw that the US long-term rates fell quite sharply. It does mean a higher Australian dollar and certainly for our market today, it looks like we will see a huge buy up in equity markets.It's up about 1. markets.It's up about 1.5 cents from yesterday.It broke through 95 US cents this morning. The weaker US dollar across the board, the gold price almost rising by about price almost rising by about $47. The US quets are up and the Australian share markets will be higher.A bit of a worry for our Reserve Bank. Talk more about that in the next hour. Thank you very much for that. Here is Mr Reeve with all the sport.

Hawthorn looks certain to welcome back Cyril Rioli
from an ankle injury, for tomorrow night's preliminary
final against Geelong. Lance Franklin returns
from suspension and it could possibly be Buddy's
last game for the Hawks, but club great Shane Crawford
is adamant Buddy is going nowhere. He's got it pretty at Hawthorn. Hawthorn really look after him,
he really looks after Hawthorn so it's a perfect match. A blow for Geelong,

with key defender Corey Enright
ruled out with a knee injury. Seven's rugby league insider
Laurie Daley will be the Blues' State of Origin
coach until the end of 2015 after a contract extension. Meanwhile, Manly prop Brent Kite has promised a physical showdown
with Cronulla in Friday night's
sudden-death semifinal after they questioned
the Sea Eagles' toughness. That's what
they've sort of been saying that we're a bit soft
here and there. Newcastle veteran Craig Gower is out of Saturday night's
semifinal clash

And the Barmy Army - well, they have given a taste
of what's to come this summer, crashing Australian captain
Michael Clarke's coming home press conference
last night. His gift was a Stuart Broad
cardboard cut-out. The skipper is hoping to overcome
his chronic back problem and play in next month's
one-day series in India.

They are wags, aren't they. That's funny.They went with Tony Abbott and the family when he became prime minister. Is the minister. Is minister. Shrek joke.Michael Clarke doesn't look like Shrek.I am not sure what the reference there.Those balmy, balmy Rami.Let's get some weather now, good morning, Eddy, where are you this morning?We are at Taronga zoo this morning, or my home back in Sydney. My grandfather used to say that the giraffes had the best view of Sydney. I reckon he is about right. We are here this morning launching a really cool initiative with Woollies. Remember when you were a kid and you used to collect stuff, be it basketball cards or football cards, remember the garbage can kids. You used to get them with a stick of gum. Trolls, whatever it was, there was a new cool collectible on the block. We are going to tell you all about it and of course bring you all of the weather.

they never change. Dad - he'll always nick something. Hey! That's called theft. No, that's called subtraction. Mum will tell her stories. Watch your father. He's subtracted a fry from me

at one fry per week. And my little brother? Don't ask. There's something about all of us

is positively different to the big rental car companies. Go with the underdog and save. Detectives have spent the night
trying to piece together what led to the murder of a man
in front of children at Doonside. During the dispute,
he was attacked with a machete and died shortly after in hospital. Sunrise reporter Gabrielle Boyle
is at the scene.

Are police any closer to finding the killer?Good morning, Sam, police are still hunting for the person responsible. It's looking increasingly likely that this was a random attack. It was around 3. random attack. It was around 3.20 yesterday afternoon that police and paramedics received a call out to Hill End Road. They found a man in his 30s. He had been stabbed in front of a number of witnesses, including small children. They worked desperately to revive him. He was raised to Westmead Hostpital. Tragically he died just an hour later. A second man involved in that altercation, he received more minor injuries. He was also taken to Westmead Hostpital, he has been released in the last few hours.Do we know what triggered the arguable in the first place?It's early in the investigation. What we know, this was a pretty bloody, violent and awful attack fblt there is some suggestion that the man attacked a number of other people. It's in ability up ear area, it's a school zone. This is full of houses, community area. It would have been quite a busy afternoon. As you heard earlier. The attack happened in front of a number of small children, just awful.Just awful is right.

You might not think you need
private health insurance. It seems expensive, and there's always
the public health system if there's an accident, right? Well, listen to this. I've always been healthy, so up until my netball accident, I couldn't see the value
in my health insurance. But without it, I could have been waiting weeks
in the public system for surgery. With NIB, I was able to
choose my specialist and be treated in
a private hospital. With NIB, you can get
basic hospital cover from just $11.91 a week for singles. You'll get unlimited cover for emergency ambulance. Plus, if you're injured as a result of an accident and need immediate
medical treatment, you'll receive
the same benefits as NIB's top
hospital cover. So, there's no
need to worry. If you don't have
private health insurance, don't wait any longer. Call NIB now on 13 14 63 for great value health cover. Their friendly consultants
are standing by, ready to take your call. It's worth it.

A British newsreader is going viral
for an embarrassing on-air mistake. Simon McCoy was supposed to
pick up his iPad for a report, but instead he grabbed
a ream of paper. The BBC says he was rushing and didn't realise his mistake
until it was too late so he simply went with it. The same guy was once caught
resting his head on the news desk.

Homicide detectives have spent
the night on a Western Sydney street investigating a stabbing murder
in front of two children. The victim was attacked
with a machete. Witnesses say he had just picked
his kids up from school. I heard the kids were screaming. I thought it was a dog chasing
the kids from the yard, I came out
and it was a different thing and I saw the man
lying on the footpath. The attacker remains on the run. The Victoria Coroner has been asked
to consider holding an inquest into the murder of Melbourne
gangland boss Carl Williams. Live to Sunrise Correspondent
Nick Etchells in Melbourne - Nick, what has his family said?

Well, this request for an inquest has come from George Williams, Carl Williams' father who says he still believes there are still too many questions unanswered. Karl William was killed in Barwon Prison in 2010. George Williams wants to know why the security cameras that captured that murder weren't being monitored at the time, why it at the time, why it took so long to find Karl's body and whether anybody outside the prison ordered that murder. Robert why Williams, Karl's ex-wife supports this. Police say it would be a waste of time. They say you be would hard pressed to find another murder that has been so closely investigated. National.

A house has been gutted by fire
in Melbourne overnight. Emergency crews rushed to the home
at Collingwood home at around 7:00 fearing the worst. We were told there was four occupants unaccounted
for at the time but after a thorough search we found
there was no-one in the house. It's believed an unattended candle
sparked the blaze. A bus driver and six passengers have
been killed when their double decker bus
collided with a passenger train in Canada. Witnesses say
the bus didn't appear to slow down as it drove through
the level crossing. The crash happened
during peak hour in Ottawa, injuring 31 other people. The ACT could become
the first Australian jurisdiction to legalise same-sex marriage. Seven News Political Reporter
Mia Greves is in Canberra. Mia, it looks like this could be
over before it even starts.

That's right, national, good morning, the ACT legislative council will introduce a bill to allow same-sex marriage in the ACT. That is likely to pass because of the 17 members of the assembly and with the sport of greens and Labor but it could be over before it begins, that's because of a couple of issues. The first is, it could be overturned by the High Court, secondly the Federal Government could get involved, so the Abbott government is likely to have to face this issue of same-sex marriage sooner than what it means would want to. Part of the ACT government wanted to introduce it is it could lead to a boom in the wedding industry here in Canberra but it will lead to a lot of disappointment, art ache and anullments, particularly if the High Court gets involved. Thank you very much for explaining it, Mia.

Ben Bernanke announced, that they were going to keep the stimulus going on the US economy. Most experts thought they would wind it back. Would you believe in the five years since the stimulus has been going in the US economy, the American market is up 154%. That's some GFC GFC, not on the share market.

, The US dollar has slid. The Australian dollar up. Basically we are getting up. Markets are still sort of moving rapidly at the moment. Up about a - almost 2 cents from this time yesterday. And, how about this, grand theft auto five. Do you know how much it racked up on sales on the first day of release? $ sales on the first day of release? $800 million. Now, consider this. Fast and furious six, which is one of the box office hits over the American summer, has raised over the summer, $ summer, $770 million. So in one day, 'grand theft auto' out did one of the movie hits of the year. That's just frightening.It's not very nice too. TimeTime for sport. Here is Simon.

Looking at our skycams - Brisbane, Mostly fine,
with a possible shower and top of 32.

Sydney, sunny and 23 degrees. And Melbourne,
A few showers with a top of 18. It's only a couple of days since police in two states slammed
a motoring writer for driving from Melbourne to Sydney
at 130k/hr. But now, another state is looking
at raising its speed limits following complaints from drivers. To discuss our Hot Topics, we're joined by 7 commentator
Derryn Hinch in Melbourne and Catherine Webber from
the 'Gold Coast Bulletin'. Catherine, more than half
of those who complained say the speed limits are too low. Is Queensland the lead-foot state or do the long distances
just frustrate drivers?

island. Rottnest

Your roads are pretty good.Some of the roads do need to be looked at, especially if we are looking at raising the speed limits, I think it needs to be done with the qufing that it's done with roads that are in good condition. You certainly can't compare it to the auto barn in jeerm where the roads are fabulous. We are not the lead foot state. We are straight up the Bruce Highway up to North Queensland. We welcome any kind of review here in Queensland. We do do a lot of driving. We are a vast nation and we would absolutely welcome it.Derryn, 20% of people complained about too many speed limit changes. This is very ray noing when you don't know what is going on. That causes a lot of frustration.I think that the argument to increase the speed limit is fine in some areas. You have to have extremely good roads and parts of Queensland and even Victoria and New South Wales you could do it but I agree with you, the bigger frustration is the variety of the money gathering speed limit changes. That's what peeves people off. They change back and forth and up and down. Like a whore's drawers, as they used to say.I am glad they don't say that any more.James O'Connor is under investigation after he was stopped from boarding a plane and removed from Perth airport by police. It's alleged O'Connor was drunk the morning after the Wallabies' test win over Argentina. He denies that. Should he be kicked off the Aussie teamThe answer is yes. Usually the ugly Australian tourists when they get to Bali. This tourists when they get to Bali. may be first that you are ugly before you get on the plane. before you get on the plane.Ment IRU says they have investigated it and listened to his story. He failed to they will them, by the way, it wasn't just a ing dispute. " wasn't just a ing dispute. "I was escorted out of the terminal by the Australian police. Australian police." He is a great talent but they believe their publicity. They have got great hands for a football but nothing between their ears.Trouble does seem to have followed James O'Connor in the past few years. Do you think footballers have too much free time on their hands?Look, are we all getting a bit sick of this footballers with attitude. There needs to be an education program or something. This is out something. This is outrageous. They are representing the country. This is one of surely a boy's dream is to grow up and play for your country. At would point do you put your attitude in check. You are 23. You know that you've been - your attitude has been under investigation before. And I think that raises a good point that Derryn said, why didn't the ARU ring the AFp, why didn't they ring the airline, just to hear his side of the story, it was just a bit of a tussle at the airport. That's not good enough. The AFp have alleged he is drunk, the ARU needed to do some deeper investigating there.Let's don't - I agree with all what you said. Let's not tarnish every elite footballer with the same brush. He is a Ouattara. There are plenty of good young blokes who play footy who do so much for the community.Too many of them who are larrikanss like this. Partly the spectators and the leader. Boony drinks 53 cans on the way to London, we think he is a hero. They should crackdown on it earlier and say it's a privilege and honour to play for your country and behave yourselves.Most do take that action.Of all the football teams flying out of Perth to Bali, how drunk you would need to be to be thrown out of the airport. A pretty wild told time I would imagine.

,. It is the spring property season. So many out there hunting for a new property.

Canstar's head of research,
Steve Mickenbecker, has the verdict. Good morning.

One of the benefits, Kochie, right now, is that you will reduce the cost of your loan. That's an immediate benefit. That's not the real big deal. The real big deal is you've got certainty in repayments. You can budget and you know you can afford the loan for the next three or five years. That's the real benefit of fixing.What are the negatives?You lose a little bit of negatives?You lose a little bit flexibility in your loan, can you necessarily make large extra repayments, no, you can't. Do you get offset? On some loans but on a lot, no. Finally, if you actually want to repay early or have to repay early, you might be restricted and it might cost you money to get out. With rates at 2. With rates at 2.5% it might cost you money to get out.
With rates at 2.5%, the cash rate at the lowest in memory, the risk of having to pay a break fee is a lot lower than if rates are at 7 or 8% lower than if rates are at 7 or 8%. So that risk isn't as bad as it usually is.People pay big break fees if you fixed at a higher rates but if you particularsed at the low rate, you want to get out, the banks are going to say terrific.The bank actually wins in that case.Where do you get the best rates if you want to fix)What we have looked at, we have to fix)What we have looked at, we have look add all of the fixed rate terms and the terms and the conditions and flexibility. There are three providers who stand out. The bank, and.Gentlemen, not often a big four gets into the best rates. They have got a very flexible product. It product. It lets you do a lot of stuff with it. And then AMO and then service one members. It's a members banking group. So a credit union.So what would your advice be. Now is the time to fix?Most people in the past have fixed when the pain has become too great. They fear further rises. We are seeing a great environment now to fix. It's a great time to actually look at it and say, 2. time to actually look at it and say, time to actually look at it and say 2.5%, which way are rates going and they might fall a little bit short term but you would have to expect up the direction. Great time to fix but fix part of your loan not part of your loan. Do our ten minute challenge. People are saving $ challenge. People are saving $160 a month in repayments. You can see what benefits you can get on your variable. So maybe a cocktail loan. A and we will have a link to the ten minute challenge on our website as well. Steve, good to see you.Thank you, Kochie. I'm doing that ten minute challenge today. I will tell you what.

A man hunt is under way

with a machete. Witnesses say the victim had just collected

drugs boss Carl Williams want the Victorian Coroner
to hold an inquest into his death. Live to Sunrise Correspondent
Nick Etchells in Melbourne - Nick, what's promped this idea?

What has prompted this, is jorms Williams, Carl Williams' father, asking the Victorian coroner to hold an inquest. He feels there are still some unanswered questions about his death. He was murdered in prison in 2010 by Matthew Johnson, a fellow inmate. Now, that murder was captured on security camera and George Williams wants to know why that security camera wasn't being monitored at the time, why it took so long to find Carl Williams' body and whether or not somebody outside the prison, ordered the murder. Robert a Williams, Karl will' ex-wife, supports the inquiry. You could than find a more fully investigated murder in the state of Victoria, now.Okay, thank you very much, nick.

the first place in the country where same-sex couples can marry, with new laws to go before the ACT's
Legislative Assembly today. Seven News Political Reporter
Mia Greves is in Canberra. Mia, what will happen
if this legislation gets through?

,Good morning, national, this legislation will get through the 17 member legislative assembly, thanks to the support of Labor and the greens. This law could be over. That's due to several That's due to several reasons. Firstly, it could be overturned by the High Court because the marriage act comes under the Commonwealth. Secondly, it could be overturned by the Federal Government. So Tony Abbott is going to have to face this issue of same sex marriage, certainly a lot sooner than what he would have hoped. The ACT government had decided to introduce same sex marriage, it would lead to a wedding boom here in Canberra but it would possibly lead to a lot of heartbreak and anullmentss especially if the laws are overturned by the High Court and the Federal Government. Thank you, Mia.

James O'Connor's future
in Australian rugby is in jeapordy after he was escorted
from Perth Airport - and barred from flying -
for alleged drunken behaviour. The Wallabies winger was preparing

Financial markets around the world are in a spin over the last through hours or so, hours or so, Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke said he would keep stimulating the economy. More on that shortly.

In finance news,
the Dow Jones is up 147 points. The NASDAQ has gained 38.

It is skyrocketing this morning. The US dollar has been deflating Fu like, going down, pushing ourselves up. We are up almost 2 cents from this time yesterday. All on the back of the announcement three hours ago.

Savanth Sebastian is at Commsec.

, Why did he say he was going to keep the stimulus going. A lot of investors thought he would do the opposite.The Fed has been talking about pulling back the stimulus in about pulling back the stimulus US and suddenly they have come you out and said " out and said "we are going to keep it going." It did seem to suggest that the US Federal Reserve is worried there may be some head winds with the US economy. They don't like the fact that long-term interest rates are rising. They are trying to keep it low to try and support of housing sector. We saw a huge rally in US stock markets. The US dollar fell to a 7 month low against a basket of currencies, especially like the Australian dollar. The commodities have to list, gold price rising up about 45 an ounce in the last few hours. So a huge rally across the board. What does it mean for Australians? It does mean that Australian stocks will be higher. Material re sorbs stocks. We have seen the home builders higher. A broad rally, it means overall, we are going to see that cash remains relatively cheap in the US for some time to come. The Fed didn't look at when they would look at winding back the stimulus. It's all euphoria and off to the raises.Happy days our futures contract predicting a futures contract predicting a 60 point increase. Time for sport now.

Detectives are this morning
continuing to try to piece together what led to the murder of a man
in front of children on a Sydney street. Sunrise Reporter Gabrielle Boyle
is at the scene at Doonside. Gabby, are police any closer
to finding the killer?

A few more details are beginning to emerge about this awful attack. It was around 3. was around 3.20 yesterday afternoon, it's understood two men have become involved in some sort of altercation. That's when the stabbing has taken place. A number of witnesses say the man was stabbed in the chest. He has fallen to the ground and the offender has calmly walked away. Police were called, paramedics were called. They tried to revive the man at to revive the man at the scene. He was rushed to Westmead Hostpital, tragically he died about an hourly ter. A second man who ter. A second man who stepped in, he was also taken to Westmead Hostpital, his injuries were just minor. I spoke to a number of neighbours who witnessed the attack as well as the best friend of the victim. Listen to what they had to say.I came out, they were like full say.I came out, they were like ful on punching him. He grabbed a knife. How would you feel if you lost your best friend, you would be pretty devastated. I just want to go home and comfort my family.Terrible scenes, Sam, for locals to witness here yesterday afternoon.What triggered the aurg ument in the first place?Sam, it's difficult to tell at this early stage. That will be the job of investigators. We are hearing reports that the offender was involved in a number of earlier altercations. This is ability up suburban area. It's very close to a school. Many homes. It was a busy time in the afternoon. It was a school knock off so there will be quite a few witnesses quite a few witnesses for police to speak with.Thank you, Gabby. We will check in with you again shortly.

Let's talk sport now, and Essendon doctor Bruce Reid will return to work at the club
next year, after the AFL dropped charges
over the club's supplements program. But others at the Bombers
might not be so lucky. 'The Australian' newspaper
is saying today that ASADA is preparing
to take action against at least seven AFL players
and officials that could result in lifetime bans
from all sport.

Let's talk to Essendon great and
Seven AFL commentator, Tim Watson. Morning to you, Tim. The story won't go away, will it? We'll get to the latest reports
regarding ASADA shortly. But first, you know Bruce Reid well,
spoke with him yesterday. He must be relieved
the charges have been dropped? He is Kochie. He has been under enormous pressure
for a long period of time obviously through this last month
or so since the charges against James Hird
and Danny Corcoran and also Bomber Thompson were laid and he decided to pursue court
action. So he has been under enormous
pressure and he is extremely relieved. I think he would like to tell
his story more in full. He doesn't want to do that now. Maybe one day he will do that. He think it's a story that can't
be told in five or ten minutes. It needs to be told over an hour
or two but he was very relieved yesterday. Look, just tell us the rationale
behind the AFL dropping the case? Well, I think you would have to ask
the AFL what the rationale would be. It was going to be -

my information was that
the courts were going to appoint a former High Court judge
to hear this and I guess it was going
to implicate a lot of people. There were all sorts of people
who were going to be drawn in to be witnesses around this, given that this is a different
investigation as opposed to the one
that was conducted by the AFL jointly with ASADA.

So I guess throughout that,
they realised it was not a place
that they wanted to be and ultimately they decided
to turn their back on that. This report in 'The Australian'
newspaper, of possible ASADA action
at the end of the season, have you heard any talk
of that? I've heard whisperings
of this for some time. I've spoken to people at club level
and at other parts of AFL and it is news to them
that this may occur. But I guess that's something that
ASADA always had the option of doing should they want to do that. We know that the first report
was an interim report. They held back parts of that report. It remains to be seen if and when
that will happen. But I have been told by a journalist
some time ago that was going to be the case.

Cheers.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott
is promising a "problem-solving government" as he heads into his first full day
officially in charge. But just how quickly can he get down
to business? Let's check
in with our political panel. Liberal strategist
Grahame Morris is in Canberra, former democrats leader Natasha
Stott Despoja is in Adelaide and Labor strategist Bruce Hawker
is in Sydney. Grahame, we'll start with you. Just how difficult is it
in terms of logistics when there's a change of government? We've already seem some public
servants let go.

What happens now?Sam, look, it is a bit hard every now and again, everything changes. But he is trying to do things in an ordinarily way. They were all pretty excited at Government House yesterday because it was Government House yesterday because it was their first day on the job. If you listen to Tony Abbott, he wants when the house resumes, say in I don't know, the first or second Tuesday in November, he wants to make sure that when the politicians are here, they are doing real work. And that will be his three Bs, boats, budget, and building. He wants to first - the first thing, legislation day one, will be to have a go at the asylum seeker issue, to try and sort out the budget mess and to start this business of building infrastructure.Okay. Natasha, the prime minister says his government will be based on values, not eye deOllie. What do you think ha means? Well, I don't think there is a ee a place for rigid eye deOllie in modern Australian politics. Most people will agree with that. Volume use, it depends which values underpin your government. Things Like equality for Like equality for example are not best symbolised by having only one woman in your cabinet. Joe Hockey's reforms in relation to the finance sector announced today are good for prosperity. So those values are important. So is fairness and some of the other ideas in relation to asylum seekers and refugees, I am not sure they 'em body those principles. I hope they are strong principle and that they will be fair and equal.Bruce, Tony Abbott getting down to work. Labor, still more than three weeks away from picking either Bill Shorten oral thonyalboon ease is working out. How well do you think this is working out.There has been a very respectful relationship between the two contenders. It's very important for the future of Labor that this they do go through this process. The rank and file will have a real say in the election of the leader. That means we are going to encourage more people to join, mortal people to join, mortal ent to come into the Labor Party. We are doing essentially what is happening around the world. It's happening now. I think it's very exciting.Graham, do you agree with what Bruce said. Do you think it's working out well? It's given the Labor Party a focus in a difficult time. I can't see how the system lasts. What happens in Albanese gets the party vote but shorten gets the political vote or what happens if you have got a mum with yun children, fighting a millionire, millionires running around the country, the mum hasn't got that if she is a battler. You could have all sorts of skewed results here. At the moment, it's giving the Labor Party a focus that is on the leadership rather than their navals.There could be a big test ahead for the government. The issue of same-sex marriage. The ACT is introducing laws today to legalize, same-sex marriage. Will this set a precedent for other statesI hope so. It's about time. I co-authored Australia's first national piece of legislation. That's back in 2006, bring it on. But are right, it will be a test for the new Commonwealth Government, for Tony Abbott's government because of course, they can still try and override that specific piece of legislation. I am not sure if they will choose to do that. I hope not but look, bring it on and let's move into the 21th century in relation to this particular issue.Graham, what do you think, will Tony Abbott try and override these laws.This is a piece of legislation that is being inreduced by a odd group of people, running a Labor government. We are not ensure the ACT has the ability to do this. Look, it will be awkward but if it ever comes back to the federal part which I suspect it may, there will be dashed expectations because 60% of the Labor is not going to agree with this and three quarters of quarters of the coalition won't either. Any other word accept " either. Any other word accept "marriage" everyone will cheer and be part of it but not the word " be part of it but not the word "marriage" be part of it but not the word "marriage".Bruce you were "marriage".Bruce you were shaking your head.I think it's time these parliament ya ans got up to date. The public sports gay marriage. It has to happen. I am very worried that the values that Tony Abbott applies here, sinces his party votes as a block to override the ACT legislation. I don't think those are fair very fair or liberal values. Thank you all for your time. Have a great day. See you soon. Here is Kochie.

A group of Victorian protestors have taken their beef
with McDonald's all the way to world headquarters
in Chicago. The delegation from the tiny town
of Tecoma in Victoria handed over a petition

against the construction
of a McDonald's store in their neighbourhood. It's the latest salvo
in the fight against the restaurant, which protestors say will change
the landscape of their community. Garry Muratore is leading
the delegation and he joins us now from Chicago. Good morning. You've taken your petition
to the top. What kind of response did you get?

Well, it was - good morning, David. It was interesting. We called up last Friday and said we are in town, we would like to deliver the petition. They told us to not to bother, just to mail it in. I pointed out that four of us didn't cross the other side of the globe to mail it in. So, we sent a few emails over the last couple of days to say that we could come out to their headquarters at 11 am this morning. They put out a media message that we hadn't contacted them. I thought that was a bit disingenuous. We started sending emails to external board members and institutional investors. They came out to see us at 11 o'clock. Today.That's terrific. What did they say?They didn't say a lot. They sent out a pR lady and a guy from corporate responsibility. They wouldn't touch the actual petition. It was like we were givering them poison. They handed the $ handed the handed the 7,000 pages to a poor security guard there. They said to us that it is well supported. We know it's not. That's a line that McDonald's in Australia keep pushing. We know that it's 9 out of 10 people in tea coke ma don't want this. It was a little bit like the quote from the Vietnam War that we had to destroy the village to save it. They told us they were suing us for our legal protection. So, I don't know what that meant but they seemed to think it was a seemed to think it was a great idea. What is your next step?Next step is we keep two up. As I said this morning, we had 96,000 - 97,000 signatures on a petition. That's growing. It's 98 now. What we are saying to people is, " saying to people is, "we are not giving up. You don't need to give up" you can get on McDonald's Facebook page and you is Kimly send the word " the word "stop" you can Twitter that to them. You can email to it. You can write it on a piece of paper and take it A store. Stop the intimidation, stop the bullying, stop the project at Tecoma there. Geez, I thought you were going to throw in stop the boats as well. You are a politician. Keep us up to date with it and see how you go, Garry. Good luck.Thank you, Kochie. I appreciate the time.I kind of like it. If they don't want a McDonald's, I don't think they should have a McDonald's if the whole town is in adepleement. Gary is in the US.

Still in the US,
and from baseball overnight -

, If that happened in rugby league, we wouldn't even bat an eyelid.He would get two weeks suspects.It looked like it really hurt his neck. You would need the antiseptic hand watch.

We get to the bottom of the surely gate. That's coming up. The American singinger with a few choice words for Miley situate rust.She is 85 years old and like, hanging out with her great grandkids, one of them will still bring up her twerking at the VMAs.The advice she won't want to hear, soon.

We will meet the man
who orchestrated the prank and his unsuspecting victim. They'll join us live. News time first, though -
here's Nat. Witnesses have told how
a man calmly walked away after stabbing another man
with a machete in Sydney. The victim suffered a wound
to the chest at Doonside late yesterday. He was taken to hospital
where he died. Two guys were having a fight. I came out, they were full-on
punching-on. A guy grabbed his knife out. All the blood just came out
in front of his kids. Police are still trying to find
the man's killer. Indonesia says it won't back Tony Abbott's plan
to turn back asylum seeker boats under any circumstances saying the Coalition's approach
is offensive. A Foreign Affairs official
has slammed the PM for bringing in his tough
new policies without consultation.

Instead of giving money to pay our police, to do on your behalf, why don't you - we sit together and thinking about capacity building?

Mr Abbott is expected to visit
Jakarta within a fortnight. The Australian Sports
Anti-Doping Authority is reportedly preparing
to take action against a string of Essendon players
and officials that could result in life-bans
from all sports. It comes a day after Essendon doctor
Bruce Reid was cleared of charges over the club's supplements scandal. He's been under pressure for an
enormous period of time, obviously through this last month or so since the charges against James Hird
and Danny Corcoran and also Thompson were laid. Dr Reid had been due back
in court today to continue challenging
the AFL's case.

Thousands of parents

Three police officera have been hurt
in a crash in Sydney's inner-west early this morning. Paramedics were called
to Rhodes at around 4:30am

The police van crashed into a power Poland then into a tree. None of the officers suffered serious injuries but they are being checked over as a precaution.

A British newsreader has made
an embarrassing on-air mistake picking up a ream of paper
and holding it during a report when he meant to pick up his iPad. The BBC says Simon McCoy
was rushing and didn't realise his mistake
until it was too late, so he simply went with it. It wasn't his first
on-air incident. He made this comment during the wait
for the royal baby to arrive. Plenty more to come from here,
of course - none of it news because that will
come from Buckingham Palace He's also been caught
resting his head on the news desk.

Sounds like he just tells the trout. Have you ever picked up a piece of paper instead of your iPad. paper instead of your iPad..Not as yet.Still time.Nor had a snooze, particularly during the news. Never snooze then.Sometimes I put my head down on the desk.It's quite difficult to concentrate for me. Just saying.Sorry.Off you go, Simon.
