Good morning. Welcome to Insiders. Tony Abbott has been in politics for 19 years but his first cabinet as Prime Minister is just four days old. First impressions can leave an enduring mark. So, can a cabinet of 20 with just woman shake off the image of a
bunch woman shake off bunch of men in suits? bunch of men in PM-elect Tony Abbott has faced heavy criticism from within his own party.Over a cabinet line-up that includes just one woman.Julie Bishop will be Foreign Affairs Minister.But it will be a boy's club in the most senior ranks of his incoming government.

50% of the population, 5% of the Tony Abbott cabinet. What's happened to the women? Fiona Nash and Michaelia Cash have been promoted to the outer Ministry.Just one of the Coalition's 12 Parliamentary Secretaries is female and she, Concetta Fierravanti-Wells, is perceived on the way out, not the way up.I think men have an innate fear of capable women at that level.The proof is in the pudding.We hope to be judged by what we have done.Terrible.We are at one in 20.Embarrassing.If Sophie Mirabella had been clearly ahead in Indi, Sophie would be in the cabinet.My goodness, the Coalition is blaming the voters for the fact they can't appoint women to senior positions.Shocking.Plainly I am disappointed that there are not at least two women in the cabinet.Problem.If you look at other countries in the world, there are more women in cabinet .It is not just embarrassing nationally.China, the US, Cuba, Canada, Uganda, the US, Cuba, Canada, Rwanda,
Uganda, Indonesia.The cabinet of Afghanistan now has more women in it than the cabinet of Australia.It's embarrassing internationally.I think it is a sad indictment.I didn't vote for Liberal last election but I know there is very talented Liberal women in that Parliamentary party.We will do our best not to leave anyone behind.Kelly O'Dwyer.Everybody would like more responsibility.Men like to run the show.I don't think there is any great news in any of that. I think you can expect to see, as time goes by, more women in both the cabinet and the ministry.He has locked in that unrepresentative nature of his front bench for at least, at least, two terms to come.Nevertheless, there are some very good and talented women knocking on the door of the cabinet.Well PM-elect, open the door.Across the aisle, the Labor Opposition is in the process of choosing its new leader. The rank and file will get a vote and start posting the votes by this Wednesday. With that in mind, we will be joined by Anthony Albanese. First, the Sunday papers. Dennis Atkins, somebody has leaked again ALP polling which suggests Kevin Rudd did do much better than Julia Gillard would have done.Yes, it has been leaked to the Fairfax press, again in fact. This story turned up the week after the election in the 'Australian Financial Review'. Laura Tingle wrote it. From amendmenty, there was - memory front
there was a pointer on the front page. It is the same point from Utting research, the same story, but someone thought they might have got rid of the renewable energy components of climate change but they are recycling their polling. The story says that if you look at the polling in the early part of this year, say from February to April, and then you compare that to what happened on the election date of September 7, the Rudd factor saved 15 seats. The Gillard supporters and also a number of other people say this is a nonsense comparison because they say the pyro maniacs burnt the house down, then came along with a bucket of water and threw it on the burning embers six months later and say "Look, we saved a couple of chairs". This has upset a lot of people in the this
Labor Party. I've had calls this morning from people who are very upset about it. They see it as being part of the leadership contest that's going on inside the Labor Party and think it is aimed at discrediting Bill Shorten and promoting Anthony Albanese.It is a hypothetical in the sense you have no idea what would have if Julia Gillard had retained the leadership and fought a campaign.Absolutely.Who stands to gain in the Surely Brian loch nan correct in not stands to gain in the long run?
Surely Brian loch correct in not throwing away correct in the Kevin correct in not throwing the Kevin Rudd files. Extending the recycling metaphor, this destabilises Bill Shorten to a degree but start rebuilding the myth that Kevin Rudd is the only bloke out there who can save the Labor Party. Look what he did at the 2013 election.Clive Palmer, Piers, the count has finished, he is in front, only just, not close enough to avoid a recount.Three dozen votes. We will see where people go obviously but voters across Australia, particularly in his electorate, will be looking at who voted for Clive. You see his three dozen votes, in fact, preferences largely from Greens and Labor. Here you have a self-proclaimed billionaire, free marketeer, owing, maybe, his seat - we will see after the re-count - to the Greens and the Labor Party. I think it set sets up an extraordinary conundrum for Palmer when he gets in and claims to be voting the - representing the voters of his electorate.Tony Burke said this yesterday.The first thing to work out is if Clive wants to be a member of Parliament.He is overseas at the moment and can't be coated.It is ones who ask for recounts are those who lost.Recounts, I can't think of an example where the result hasn't been changed because what a recount involves is a full distribution of preferences, so every preference. In Fairfax, there are a lot of candidates. Every one of those preferences will be distributed right across the tickets.Jacqueline, Scott Morrison has not only pledged to stop the boats but stop the press releases?Yes. This is a story in the News Limited papers today there is going to be a partial news blackout on boat arrivals. Under previous governments we have gotten an email alert into our in-boxes every time a boat comes and when a boat is in distress as well. Scott Morrison is saying that practise will end, or has ended. Instead, there will be weekly briefings which the Labor Party, the Opposition, are saying is a culture of secrecy. He is saying, actually, you need to be in stop people
control of this information to stop people smugglers.We will hear what Scott Morrison has to say about it. Not Scott Morrison, Tony Burke.It is a simple operational piece of information that no government enjoys giving out. It is not like it is a good day in the media when you do it. But you provide the information and provide it immediately because the Australian people have a right to know that information. When Tony Abbott said he was going to stop the boats, he never let us know that there was a plan to hide the boats.It is about lowering the temperature on the issue, isn't it? No, I think it is an organisational matter and I think that tomorrow the new head of the sovereign taskforce will be having a press conference with the minister about this very issue - well, including aspects of this issue. People have to understand that when the boats were
were stopped, ie, when people were stopped from drowning at sea, the Howard Government didn't have a press conference or issue a release every time a boat came over the horizon because the operational view is that basically ticks the people smugglers' box and they get to tell their prospective clients "Look, another one safe, it is home and landed and those people are now ashore and being processed". I valid reasons processed". I think there are information which is going to valid reasons from withholding
information which is smugglers. I've got to say going to assist people this, Barrie -It smugglers. I've got to this, Barrie -It is rare a
journalist can this, Barrie -It the release of information.We are journalist can argue against
the release of are only talking a day or the release of information.We are only talking a day here. It is not - it is not going to be suppressed. I have to say this - the ABC was one of the few organisations which didn't actually run the news that the people smugglers' that the people boats were approaching. They often neglected it from their broadcasts.That was because towards the end particularly there were too many of them. If you put out a broadcast every time ....It is important or it is not important. You can't say "This is so important, we must be banging on Scott Morrison's door" when the ABC had the information in the past and didn't bother broadcasting it.If you have a boat or a few boats that arrive - we have seen this in recent months - on a Tuesday and are intercepted and have got on board 300 people, why should we wait until the following Monday to find out about that? Why shouldn't the Australian people know about it straightaway? Why should the people smugglers know needily.They will - immediately.They will know within a week, they will still have the numbers to play with.I would rather hear the head of the taskforce who has dealt with refugee situations in Timor and so on give his excuses, bearing in mind that the last government, as you would know, Jacqueline, often slipped these releases out at 6:30 in the evening or late on Friday ...They can do the same thing under the new regime. They can do a Friday press conference at 7:30p.m. if they want to after it is too late to go to broadcast.This
administration, as the Howard administration, which actually stopped this business, is following that model.We will move off that. See if that's the way they rationalise it tomorrow. Dennis, preselection, NSW State Labor have come up with a novel approach to preselection? Yes. The green shoots of democracy in the Labor Party are turning into a lawn it would seem. They've got a proposal, John Robertson, the NSW Opposition Leader, has got a proposal to run open primaries effectively in five State electorates for the next State election and this means that the voting in the primary for the candidate to select the Labor candidate won't just be confined to Labor Party signed up and financial members. It will also be open to people who put themselves forward as Labor supporters and are willing to make a small donation to the party. This is the sort of thing that happens in the US in open primaries over there. I think it's got a couple of problems with it. One is that the whole thing about getting the rank and file of the Labor Party involved in this is to give the membership a say in things. This devalues that it would seem. It is open to stacking from somebody who wants to come in with a bit of money and skew the vote one way or the other.It might have the impact of marginal people who are undecided joining up and becoming committed through the process? That's always quite possible. I think this democracy thing in the Labor Party is really taking off and I understand they are looking at opening it up to the Upper Houses which I think will send some shudders through the trade union offices around the country.That's the Sunday papers. The Labor leadership battle is a two-way affair, Bill Shorten versus Anthony Albanese. We are joined by the latter from Sydney. Anthony Albanese welcome.Good morning Barrie.When did you first harbour the ambition to lead the Labor Party? Well, very recently Barrie, the truth is I have always seen myself as a team player who could make a contribution. I did want to be the leader of the House of Representatives but until very recently I didn't harbour recently I ambitions to be leader. Towards the end of the campaign, people started approaching me. I dismissed those approaches because I wanted to concentrate each and every day on maximising the Labor vote on September 7. So after September 7, I gave it some thought, I had to be very clear that it was something that I wanted to do, I had to be clear in my own mind also that I believed it was in the best interests of the Labor Party for me to put myself forward for the leadership.Why is it do you think you never really thought about it as a serious possibility? I have just seen myself as a team player. I know it is often said, Barrie, no-one goes into Parliament who doesn't want to be the leader. That's not my experience. My experience is that most people go in wanting to be a local member first and they might want to make a contribution as a minister at some time. That certainly is where I was at for a long time. I think as neither you nor any of your journalist ic colleagues can ever say I have said to you or to them "I think I might be leader one day". I think I have played a role in terms of providing that support using my skills in the Parliament as Leader of the House and Manager of Opposition Business but also I be the Infrastructure Minister and to be about nation building. I have been able to achieve that. building. I have achieve that. I think the circumstances of the party now are that I believe I'm the best person to are that I person to take Labor forward and take Tony Abbott on at the and take Tony Abbott on at next election.Was it in any way driven by the fact you knew Bill Shorten would run and given you have new rules operating, you owed it to the rank and file to at least give them a contest to get involved wanted to
in? No. I had to make sure I wanted to do the job and that I person
was, in my view, the best person to do the job. I also was encouraged to stand by people within the Labor Party across the political spectrum, from outside the Labor Party, from people in the business community rang me up and encouraged me to put myself forward. Under those circumstances, I think it is a good thing that the democratic process is taking place. I was there in '96 when we lost and what normally happens when governments lose is they go into a corner for a while and have a bit of self-reflection and go through a difficult time. What's happening now, it is two weeks since the election, we are talking about Labor's future, not just to ourselves as a Caucus but to thousands of Labor Party members and, indeed, also out there in the community I think there is an engagement in this process. That's a good thing.Labor members are probably more interested in policy than personalities too. Do you accept the analysis seems to be there is no real policy differences between you and Bill Shorten? Look, Bill and I share very similar values. That mightn't be convenient for the media but so be it. We're not going to create false distinctions. I do think we need to talk about policy development, there will be debates this week, there will be three at least in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth over the coming eight days and, out of that, I'm sure there'll be some differences of emphasis arise. I certainly think we need to defend the legacy where we got it right and we got the big calls right over the Rudd and Gillard Governments. Programs like the National Broadband Network, action on climate change, the Better Schools plan, DisabilityCare. We need to defend that. We also need to acknowledge, I think, where we got it wrong and areas like I think the sole parent payments is an area where we made a mistake. We essentially meant that some of the most vulnerable people ended up with less income but perhaps less income importantly to them, to those that I have spoken to, there was a lack of respect I think for the role they play as single parents and a great deal of disappointment. Labor must always be the party of the disadvantaged. We must be very clear about our values and what we stand for as a framework and then, on top of that, you can get into the specific policy development.Who drove the policy to take away the benefits to sole parents? Look, I think we have to take collective responsibility Barrie. I was a member of the Government and I don't seek to blame any individual. I think it is really important that the Labor Party stop finger pointing. The reference beforehand that you have just had in your discussion about polling I really think isn't helpful. I was a party official some time ago. There was never any leaking of internal polling. It simply has to stop.On the differences from the Left, that's not traditionally - NSW Left - where Prime Ministers come from. Bill Shorten is known to build contacts with both unions and business. Does that give him an edge? No, I think Barrie I've got very good contacts with the business community. If you look at the role I played, the establishment of Infrastructure Australia where you have direct private sector representatives, a board chaired by Sir Rod Eddington with private sector reps there. If you look at the work I did as a minister involving business groups like the logistics council, like the Australian trucking association, in the framework, they got to come to ministerial council meetings and participate. Whether it be the establishment of the national urban policy forum with groups like the property council of Australia, I have very good links across the business sector. I was encouraged by a number of people in the business community to put myself forward and, indeed, I think many of those old labels are outdated. I'm not putting myself forward as a candidate for a particular group of people in the Labor Party. I want to represent all of the Labor Party and I want to take up the challenge of rebuilding Labor after what was a very significant loss two weeks ago.You said you have been loyal to both Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard but when it came to the crunch, you have only ever voted for Kevin Rudd? I actually voted for Kim Beazley when Kevin Rudd first stood.In the Rudd-Gillard leadership, you have only ever voted for Kevin Rudd? That's correct. I have been up-front about my view of the events of June 2010. Each and every day in the Parliament and I think anyone who watched the Parliament saw that I defended the Government, whether it be under Kevin Rudd or Julia Gillard each and every day to the best of my ability and I was never shy about doing that. Each and every day it was a tough Parliament, the last Parliament, and Julia Gillard did a remarkable job. I think history will treat both the Gillard and Rudd Governments very well indeed in terms of the achievements we did, mainly going through the global financial crisis in our first term and, under Julia Gillard, remarkable reforms particularly in the context of a minority Parliament. We got through almost 600 pieces of legislation. We didn't suffer a single defeat. I think Tony Windsor's comments were pretty strong this week, unusual for Tony Windsor to come out supporting a particular candidate, but he did and he emphasised the work the Parliament loyally to the Labor emphasised the work I did in
the Labor Party.You talk the Parliament loyally to the Labor Party.You achievements and you go through Julia Gillard's achievements, the NDIS Julia Gillard's the NDIS was at the top of the list, Murray-Darling Basin reform, education reform. What were Kevin Rudd's significant policy achievements? The big one, of course, was the economic stimulus plan.That's not so much a policy initiative, that was a response to a crisis.That was a big policy initiative, Barrie, because what that did was result in the bringing forward of projects like the full dup I willication of the Hume Highway, major infrastructure projects around Australia. If you don't get the economics right, keep people in employment, keep family with breadwinners, then everything else falls away. That was critical. Joseph Stiglets viewed it as the best designed stimulus package anywhere in the world. That was a major achievement. When we came to office in 2007, the first thing was ratify the Kyoto protocol. What's their first achievement? Sacking public servants, appointing one woman out of 19 in appointing one woman in the cabinet but perhaps more drastically only one woman out of 12 parliamentary secretaries, thereby locking that lack secretaries, that lack of representation in for the future. I think it has been a very poor start from the Abbott Government. No vision, no big policy initiatives and it stands in stark contrast to our actions when we came into government.Further on the question of loyalty, can you say hand on heart you knew nothing of the destabilisation and the undermining that was going on against Julia Gillard? Of course not. Everyone knew about it Barrie, it was in the paper.You knew beyond what was written in the paper and you knew who was doing the undermining? Everyone knew what was going on. Everyone knew it. The question is do you involve yourself in it? Certainly I didn't. I was of the view very strongly that we should concentrate on taking up the challenge to the Opposition. I think now what we need to do is twaul look to the future, we need to draw a line in the sand under this and we need to unite and move forward with whoever is the leader Barrie.Okay, but you say you knew it was going on, you heard talk of the cardinals, the group that called themselves the cardinals, Kim Carr, Alan Fitzgibbons and Richard Marles, why didn't you go to them and say "This has to stop"? Going this
over history, everyone knew this was going on. What my job was, each and every day, I was Leader of the House, Minister for Infrastructure and transport, Minister for Regional Australia and Local Government. I frankly had enough on my plate arguing against our political opponents. That was what I concentrated on each and every day. What we need to do is to make sure that every member of the caucus moving forward does just that.You could have done more surely. The suspicion is you didn't want to because, as Pam Williams wrote in the 'Financial Review', you were a secret cardinal. What do you say to that? Well, Barrie, that's just not the case. Pam Williams didn't bother to speak to me about any of those articles. There has been some things published since the changeover that simply don't bear resemblance to reality. It was written on the front page of the Oz a week ago that I was of the Oz a week a Kevin Rudd supporter against Kim Beazley in a Kevin Rudd supporter Kim Beazley in 2005. I mean, Kim Beazley anyone who Kim Beazley in 2005. I anyone who was around then, including Kim Beazley, knows that is not the that is not the case. I was always up-front about my position. I held a press conference that was fairly widely publicised, you might remember, about my position, publicly about the circumstances of what occurred in 2010. I don't think there is anything productive to be done with going over all the entrails. I think what we need to do, put a line under the sand and move forward as a united team. We need to learn the lessons and I think circumstances such as today's leaked polling aren't helpful at all.That does appear as if there are elements within the Labor Party, you presume they are the former Rudd supporters, who are hell bent on trashing Julia Gillard's reputation to justify the return to Kevin Rudd.And it is not helpful because what I've done, both publicly and privately, Barrie, is defend the legacy of both Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard . I did it whilst they were in the leadership positions. I intend to continue to do it regardless of the outcome. Because that's what Labor supporters expect. One of the big issues we had during the election campaign was the lack of unity and to give Tony Abbott credit, the truth is that he was very disciplined and his team were disciplined and they reaped the benefits of it. The Labor Party needs to make sure that we are also a disciplined team, that we don't go into trying to score what are at the end of the day petty political points. Julia Gillard are at the end of the day was an outstanding Prime Minister under difficult circumstances. Kevin Rudd I circumstances. Kevin think retires from think retires from leadership ambitions with having had an outstanding record as the Prime Minister. That's not to say that there weren't mistakes made by the Labor government, we need to acknowledge that, but we got the big calls right and we are in a position to be successful at the next election. We've got 55 seats and that makes us very competitive indeed.Just Shorten of
finally, if you beat Bill Shorten of course, can you go on and beat Tony Abbott given a first time Opposition Leader, in almost 100 years, haven't gone on and won in the first chop.It is a tough challenge but it is one I'm up to. No-one has given me leg up in life. What you see is what you get. I will be doing what I do in terms of the policy positions Government
that I hold, holding the Government to account, defending our legacy where we have a good record in recent times, but also using the period of Opposition to develop what is the next National Broadband Network, what's the next Better Schools plan? It's only Labor that has ever done the big ideas. We have an opportunity to develop that in Opposition in a constructive way and I look forward to the challenge if I am selected. If not, I will be part of Bill Shorten's team going forward to the next election. We owe it to our supporters and we owe it to the nation to always be thinking about not ourselves but what are the interests of those families talking about around the kitchen table, how does my kid get a better education, how do I get proper health care, is my job secure with decent working conditions. That's what we have to focus on in the next three years.Thanks for your time this morning.Thanks Barrie. Heads are rolling.The PM has gotten straight to work sacking three senior public servants on his first day in office.When I was the incoming minister, there was no departmental sects sacked.Obviously we do intend to trim the size of the Commonwealth public sector.You're fired.I'm just not going to get into the whys and where fors.Don Russell, a former adviser to Paul Keating, Blair Comley who helped design the carbon tax and Andrew Metcalfe who used to be the immigration chief.You're all fired.Mr Metcalfe had several public runnins with Coalition figures over policy differencings.How is that not a pull factor? Sorry Senator, I don't think you need to raise your voice.Andrew has been described as a first class public servant by the former Immigration Minister Amanda Vanstone.These jobs should not be political play things.You're fired.Is this retribution for their involvement in formulating a couple of controversial Labor policies? That has happened for every single incoming government since time immemorial.The public service still talks about the night of the long knives after John Howard won office in six department heads were Howard won office in 1996 and six chopped.We have six department heads were chopped.We have professional
public servants. chopped.We public servants. They should be respected.We've got to put together the best possible team.Sacking people, not promoting women, it is not the best start I've ever seen.Tony Abbott is splitting one department, merging others. AusAid will be absorbed by Foreign Affairs.There may well be fewer people working in AusAid in a few years time.We want to make sure there isn't dupe lieication, waste inefficiency.The clean-out of the public service continues with the Climate Commission shut down.I am extremely proud of what we did. I would have been happy to continue on but the Government has made a decision.You're fired!Out, out foul spot. Out, out foul spot. Three heads of department plus Martin Parkinson who is leaving earlier than perhaps otherwise would be the case. Would you be surprised by that number? Not really. Given the personnel who are involved, it shouldn't come as a great surprise. Whether it was the right thing to do or not is another thing. It isn't the biggest clean-out we've had after an election. That was John Howard in 1996 in the night of the famous long white envelopes when six departmental heads got rolled. This is Martin
three, effectively four because Martin Parkinson has been allowed time to go gracefully.It is characterised the Coalition, more than Labor, Paul Keating even gave John Stone a chance to prove himself.John Stone was an exceptional public servant.You might say that about Martin Parkinson.You might say this about Martin Parkinson, he did come out in the final week of the election, or eight days before the election, with other finance department heads and finance department heads exposed Labor's lie that about the Coalition budget costings. I'm told, reliably, that after Parkinson and the other heads of office of budget management and finance came out and exposed Labor, that Chris Bowen, then the Treasurer, called him up and said "We won't forget, Labor will get you". Parkinson has told the Coalition that and that's why he has been given this period of grace. He was actually intimidated and he received an extra six or seven months ...How generous.... To find a job.There is a serious problem if I could take a minute about the hollowing out of Treasury. This has been going on for 20 years where the private sector, with its huge amounts of money it is able to offer some of these economic analyst s who work in the senior levels of Treasury, they have been peeling them off bit by bit. They're all turning up in banks and other places. You talk to senior people in Treasury in Canberra and they despair at the fact that real talent is being taken away. I just think somebody like Martin Parkinson who everybody I know regards him as one of the finest economic minds in the country, the fact he has just been pushed aside I think is demoralising for the ethos in Treasury.But there are other people out there. Barrie you'd remember the assistant treasury secretary Mike Callahan who has a berth at the Lowy Institute. He was respected by both sides of politics. He would make an admirable Treasury Secretary when they start to rebuild Treasury. Treasury has been absolutely hopeless. Look at every budget over the last six years. Look at the forecasts, look at the forecasts in the lead-up to this, you wouldn't have them in the public sector.Dennis made the point they are very popular in the public sector. Let's go to some of the issues the new government confronts straight off the bat. The relationship with Indonesia They have cranked up with Indonesia is a key one. They have cranked up the rhetoric over asylum seekers.I think the policy will be very offensive think the policy will be offensive and we in think the policy will be very Parliament offensive and we in the
Parliament fully was said by our Parliament fully support what Ministers that we will fully Ministers that we reject the policy. It's illegal.There are many voices in Indonesia but I illegal.There are many in Indonesia but I am very
confident this in Indonesia but confident this government will
be able to work effectively with the Indonesian Government.You start Jacqueline from a low base when the Indonesians are saying the policy is offensive.It should be noted this guy, the guy who was just quoted who was on 'Lateline', is an MP, a low-ranking MP in the Indonesian government.Though he says they agree with the Foreign Minister.I don't think there is any doubt there is noises out of Jakarta this is going to be a difficult policy and it is offensive to Indonesian sensibilities. It is amazing, I think, the way Tony Abbott has just immediately dialled down his rhetoric. There was a front page of the 'Australian' yesterday where he was talking about how the boats issue is a minor irritant, or they want it to be a minor irritant in an overall beautiful relationship which is a nice sentiment. It wasn't so long ago we had an emergency on our borders. Which is it? You can expect him to walk back from two policies, the idea of buying the boats from the Indonesia fishermen, the idea of paying money directly to Indonesian citizens to provide information which is an attack on Indonesia's sovereignty.I think that's right but he can't walk back from the idea of turning back the boats. And he won't. What he has to do, it will be a big test won't. What he will be a big test for his will be diplomatic skills which have never been tested, diplomatic skills never been tested, when he never been meets with Yudhoyono in a week's time, to come to some sort of position where he can offer the Indonesians something so they can cooperate and accommodate Australia's policy. I'm not sure what he can offer them but I'm sure ...It is the big
looking like ....Beef will be the big thing.Yes.This is critical to Indonesia, far more critical than turning back the he
boats. This is guy, as you say, he is the equivalent of an Eddie Maguire and I think he ran a game show. He is such a minor person in the Indonesian Parliament.Those views are being expressed by so many people out of Indonesia.I think the views that matter will be the ones expressed tomorrow week after Tony Abbott meets the Indonesian leadership.If Tony Abbott does something on beef, perhaps the Indonesians will use something in terms of asylum seekers coming into Indonesia in the first place.We have to understand, you do need a bigger relationship with Indonesia. They're crying out for it in a number of areas, not least assistance with the uranium development and nuclear power. We have a lot to offer. They are aware of that. I don't think this is going to be a problem.I think it will be interesting to see because if Tony Abbott does put some sugar on the table, to use one of SBY's phrases, and gives some ground on agriculture imports or on the cattle trade, he is going to face pressure within his own Coalition from the Nats and from Barnaby Joyce who has made very strong statements against that.The second issue is identify by the WA Premier Colin Barnett.Unfortunately one of the tough jobs Tony Abbott is going to have is to step up to the plate as they say and take some leadership on the federation and front and centre in that will be the GST issue. I'm sure he doesn't want to do that but I don't think he has much choice. All States are saying GST needs to go up. Whether the rate goes up or some of the exemptions are got rid of, that needs to happen.Tony Abbott will say under no circumstances, but if it is part of a taxation review, what happens if the taxation review throws it up as a live issue? It is a brilliant result for Tony Abbott because he says "No, I'm not going to break promises". There is so much overwhelming pressure if the States band together and put pressure on the issue and the tax review comes up with some sort of finding about changing the GST, he can take it to the next election. It is a good result for him.It could be. I think there are still risks with it. We shouldn't forget in the '98 election when the GST was an issue, the Labor Party went within a whisker of winning that election and breaking the tradition that first-term governments get a second go. This came up because WA lost its AAA credit rating and Colin Barnett desperately needed a distraction, so he did what WA Premiers do, he said "Look over there at Canberra".That did seem to come out of a clear blue sky, the downgrade.I don't think this hurts Abbott to have a blue with a this hurts Abbott to have blue with a Conservative
government because this hurts Abbott to have a
blue with government because it takes away government away Labor's attack you will have wall-to-wall Conservatives as the country. Should, as Jacqueline and Dennis suggest, he goes to the next election, he'll have Labor Party people who will have to say "We support an increase in the GST".Third issue, and this one goes to Holden cars and whether there is a prospect of the icon might disappear under Tony Abbott's watch. The issue here is that Labor put $500 million on the table that the Abbott Government has refused to match. Here is the Industry Minister.Everyone wants to talk about the 500 million. Seriously, there are massive more issues than the 500 million. I know money is important. We put a lot of money into the industry. I put it in the basis they produced a car Australians want to buy. The reality is that Australians aren't buying that car.Is that the reality? Yes.The car is the problem.The car is part of the problem for sure. I think Tony Abbott is very lucky to have Ian Macfarlane as the Minister dealing with this problem. Ian Macfarlane was schooled in the politics of the agricultural Queensland and he survived and
flourished in that. If you can survive and flourish in that sector, you can survive and flourish pretty well anywhere. Ian Macfarlane is a very smart man, he is a consensus builder and a problem solver. He is a practical man, he comes from a grain-growing background. He wants to bring everybody through.
together and talk the issue through. When he was talking about who was going to come, it sounded like it was going to be bigger than the 1983 economic summit the way he was chatting about it. I think Tony Abbott is very lucky to have Macfarlane in this spot. He is committed to manufacturing and he is committed to an auto industry. I think he will do a pretty good job with it.It is pretty true, one Ian is the supreme pragmatist. Two, he hasn't forgotten that the last time the Coalition was in office, they gave the car industry or Holden $4.3 billion. When taxpayers are reminded of that, you have to say "What did they do with the dough?".To put the pressure on as quickly as they did, though it came from the SA Premier, with some support from the industry, it has been described as extortion in some circles they put the pressure on so early.It will be interesting to see - I can't see them cutting off the oxygen supply during this term of government anyway but it will be interesting to see if any further money they give has conditions attached. Maybe around industrial relations or awards.Let's not forget Jay Weatherill has an election in February of next year and he would love an issue like this to run in his favour.Back to the issue where we started, one woman in the inner cabinet, Tony Abbott would argue two if Sophie Mirabella had won. Is this the kind of issue that is likely to characterise the Abbott Government throughout the term? It was extraordinarily passive language that we heard from Tony Abbott when he said it was disappointing there wasn't - there weren't more women in cabinet and basically blaming the voters of Indi for not having an affirmative action principle. I think it is pretty extraordinary actually in 2013 because it just says that either there is some sort of institutional problem within Coalition ranks that women aren't coming up ...Even if you accept Amanda you accept Amanda Vanstone's argument the women weren't up to argument to it. She was saying it is on than the
merit and the men were better than the available women. What is it about the culture of the Liberal Party they don't attract women who are capable? I would argue that politics is a very hard game and there are not very many women not very many women who run for preselection anywhere. We know what the Labor ...The numbers are in the Parliament, the numbers are not the problem.But we have got a crop of fairly young women coming through now but they haven't had the experience of either of the Bishops, Julie or Bronwyn for example, and when you look at where Labor has gone with the women that it's appointed with its quota systems, its affirmative action programs, it is not a great record. Carmen Lawrence, failure. Joan Kerryner, failur. Julia Gillard, ditched by her own party and Lara Giddings who is a pretty hopeless Premier of Tasmania at the moment.Women have been given the opportunity, and you have demonstrated that.To fail.Let me go to something Joe Hockey said on Q&A March 2011.It has been an issue important to me for many years now and, from my perspective, corporate Australia has had so many warnings and I just don't understand how you can claim as a director of a company that all wisdom and knowledge lies in the hands of men only. If they don't meet a reasonable target within a period of time, more punitive measures need to be taken by the Parliament.Can you see that happening? No, I can't see that at all. Piers talks about quotas. The Liberal Party has quotas, a quota for the National Party, so many cabinet and minister replaces are reserved for the National Party, quotes for the Senate and as Tony Abbott said Party, quotes for the and as Tony Abbott said quotas
to make sure there is State to make representation. The one area where there is no quota and it is merit-based is for women. The women say - these are Liberal women - "Look, you only play the merit card when it is us so excuse us for playing the gender card".Before we go to Talking Pictures, the Labor leadership we spent a lot of time on it with the interview with Anthony Albanese, but let's see - I want to get some views on how you think the debate will develop. Here are the two candidates.I woke up each and every day and did my best for the cause of Labor. I didn't engage in internal shenanigans. We should not be shy about defending the interests of Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard and I am in a position to do both because I was loyal to both.I know Mr Albanese has always been a very keen supporter of Mr Rudd and I respect him for it. I like all the members of the caucus have had to make hard decisions based upon what we think is the national interest and the party interest.Loyalty, such as it is, will become an issue and so will this other issue on policy because Anthony Albanese raised the issue they should not have taken away the support for single parents and Bill Shorten was central to that.At the moment we do have a competition between personalities and they have - obvious lir we have a competition between faction s as well. I would like to see more policy differences and Albanese foreshadowed that today. I want to know as well what they will do on carbon pricing and whether they will take it to the next election, whether they are going to concrete it as part of the policy platform. What's going to happen with the NBN? These are the questions that should be answered if we are having a debate about policies.Internal in the party, whether Anthony Albanese was genuine to both or simply a Rudd supporter.It is an issue. It has become an issue since the election campaign when a lot of people who had taken Anthony Albanese at his word, that he was a passive player in the Rudd comeback, that he was always loyal to Julia Gillard and he wasn't involved in the day-to-day shenan gans as he says, a lot of people during the election campaign, from conversations they were having and hearing and talks they were having with Anthony Albanese himself, they formed the view that passivitity wasn't quite there.Even if it was there, he made it clear this morning he was aware of the undermining, did he as a senior player have a responsibility to put a stop to it? You would have thought he was in a better place than anyone else. You would have thought Anthony Albanese could have gone to these cardinals and said "Look out" and they would have and said "Look guys, cut it listened to him a long way listened to him before they listened to listened to him a long before they listened to people
like Wayne before they listened like Wayne Swan.More on the panel shortly but now it is time for Mike Bowers and Talking Pictures.

I'm Mike Bowers. I'm director of photography for the Global Mail. Talking Pictures this morning with Craig Reucassel from 'The Hamster Decides'. Welcome.Good to see you.While the new government was being sworn in, there was a group of people swearing there should be more women in the cabinet.I want to point out before the Twitter verse gets in on this, someone in the Chaser talking about how many women is hypocrital.I never saw a Chaser girl.No, John is ifeminine but no.I do love this.

That is a fantastic cartoon.Ron Tandberg, is it a worry having one woman in cabinet? Don't worry, she will be overseas most of the time.Which is true.It is a boy's club.Talk about our willies or something.Tony grew up in a boxing environment, playing rugby and it is going to be like a boy's change room. Flicking of towels.Cathy Wilcox, one of the few female Wilcox, one cartoonists has brought her unique slant to it. "It unique slant to it. "It is not my fault if there weren't my qualified women".

This is a wonderful cartoon.You can recognise the backbenchers. He has been practising, almost as if he knew the Liberals were going to win the next election.

That is going to lead to a fascinating Parliament.She does pride herself on the standing orders.She knows them backwards. We are going to tune into Parliament and it will be Bronwyn sitting there. She will have thrown everyone out.You are allowed to bring your own Bible if it has significance to you. Senator Scott Ryan brought the family Bible which was the size of a double-decker bus.Are you going to manage with that? It is like the Book of Kells.I thought he wasn't going to reach the table. Being from the Chaser, I never want to criticise someone for large props.You are well known for your large props.Exactly, well done Scott. There is Barnaby, one day on Boxing day, the radio will be saying "Acting Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce said".It won't worry about the Ashes.In engineering bridge building, there is a Warren Truss.What does it do? Holds off Barnaby Joyce.It is going to have to be strong to hold that force off. The new Member for New England. There was a wonderful vision they went back to Parliament House after swearing in and let the media in for the first cabinet meeting, as they ushered out, Tony is standing there waiting for them to go. After the door shut, they got up and twerked "We're here, we're here".It is Shorten versus Anthony Albanese.Giving the vote to people who joined the Labor Party before the last election is a great idea because that last election you are is a great idea because if you
joined the Labor that last election you are a
true that last election you true believer.Gough's famous line, faceless men and line, faceless men "We have men".With thousands of we have never seen "We have replaced the faceless
men".With thousands we have men".With thousands of people is a great we have never seen before.It is a great pleasure. It is
tradition is a great tradition if the guests throws
back to Barrie but in the spirit back to spirit of Tony time, we spirit of Tony time, get a token female cartoonist to do it.Great idea.Back to you Barrie.Token.We don't have a token panelist.I should hope not.The Victorian Parliament is on a knife edge because Geoff Shaw has been hit with 24 criminal charges. He was away ill this week and so it was an opportunity for Labor to test the numbers in the Parliament. Daniel Andrews the Opposition Leader made himself a target. He was demanding to be named because if you are named, then a vote has to be taken and he wanted to test the numbers on the floor of the Parliament. This is what happened.The Leader of the Opposition, you can leave the chamber for an hour and a half. I am not going to put up with this. I ask you to leave the chamber. I have asked you to leave the chamber.You will need to name me.There is no point of order. I'm asking you to leave the chamber.You will have to name me because I refuse to leave. Name me you bias, name me.I ask at the ser anti-at - sergeant at arms to come and remove the Leader of the Opposition.The bouncer moved in and in the end didn't have to get physical. He left the chamber. It's almost a Craig Thomson situation where there is have been laid so anything can
happen. We saw from have been laid so anything happen. We saw from that, it happen. We saw takes forever for these charges to be takes forever to be dealt with so I think to be dealt with they can take a cold shower and wait. The great risk is Geoff Shaw might just walk because it is a different situation to Craig Thomson. If he was to walk, then it's on.Then there'd be a by-election, the Liberal Party holds the seat by 2.1% and Labor held it before the last election. You would think it would be a life and death struggle there.A number of things come into play. The question is whether the electorate, whether federal Coalition government will decide "Let's have a Labor government in Victoria".I'd be interested to see whether Tony Abbott thinks it is a tainted vote that shouldn't be relied upon by the Libs in Victoria.The Liberal Party is hanging on to him as a member though.As a member but not a sitting millimetre.If you - MP.If you start going into that thing, it is the illegal use of a car, he paid the money back, who else has paid money back recently for illegal use of cars? Julia Gillard. Do Labor want to go down that burrow? There is so many cases of that happening Piers where MPs are identified. In this case, criminal charges being laid, that's the difference.Should criminal charges be laid in the other case? No because she repaid the money.Tony Abbott was busted for doing the same thing.Massive difference between the two. Here is an observation from Bill Shorten about Steve Bracks.I like most Australians are probably shocked Steve Bracks was removed as our representative, the nation's representative in New York for political reasons but the silver lining in every cloud is I does let him come out and support me. New York's loss is my gain.Absolutely.Steve Bracks said the silver lining is he was able to stay in the country for the footy finals. You be the judge of the silver lining.If Tony Abbott has said he wants to run a government which only announces things when there is something to be said, he is not going to be feeding the 24-hour media frenzy, which is an interesting strategy and quite a welcome will be interesting to see whether or strategy for many will be interesting to whether or not he can keep it
up because the whether or not he can up because the media abhors a up because vacuum. But up because the media abhors vacuum. But freelancing
backbenchers and up because the media abhors a
vacuum. love backbenchers and the Opposition
love one.The campaign director for the Liberal Party Brian loch nan wrote a very nice diary in the new 'Spectator' magazine about the campaign. He had something nice to say about George Wright. He said if anyone deserves a Senate seat in the Labor Party, it is George Wright.You told me ABC journalists are Twittering they report boat arrivals. I dispute

the ongoing police investigation of Julia Gillard and the AWU matter.The US ambassador to Australia John Berry has introduced himself to the country by video, we will leave you with part of that. Thanks for watching.Hi, I'm John Berry, the new US Ambassador to Australia. I'm a native of the Washington DC area and I love the outdoors.

This Program is Captioned Live.This morning, carnage in Nairobi. 39 people dead in the Kenyan capital after militants lay siege to a shopping mall.Terrorism in and of itself is a philosophy of cowards.Also on ABC News 24, suicide bombers target a funeral in Iraq killing more than 50 mournersA woman shot in the shoulder after a drive-by shooting in Sydney's west.Fremantle through to their first ever AFL Grand Final after a decisive win over the Swans Sydney Swans. Good morning, it's Sunday, 22 September. I'm Miriam Corowa.I'm Nick Grimm. Also on the program this morning, in just a few hours, former Chinese politician Bo Xilai is expected to be sentenced on charges of corruption and covering up the murder of a British businessman.Despite the near certainty of a lengthy jail term, the fallen political figure has remained defiant throughout his trial. The sentence will cap a massive fall from grace for a man who was one tipped for promise notion to the top ranks of power. For more we'll be joined by the University of Sydney's Kerry brown later this hour.A case often described a soap opera. What we haven't heard about that case so far is what's really fascinating about it.We'll be hearing more about that and whether or not this is the sign of the anti-corruption move being undertaken by the new President actually taking effect in the country.Stay with us for that. Let's check the weather around the country now:

Let's get the latest news headlines with Miriam.Gunmen are still believed to be holding hostages in the Kenyan shopping centre where 39 people were massacred earlier today. Another 150 people were wounded in the military style assault on a Nairobi building. The Somalia based Islamist extremist group, Al Shabaab, is suspected of carrying out the attack as an act of revenge against government.Any day in Kenya's capital against the Kenyan
government.Any day in Kenya's capital and hundreds of people
run for their lives. The

gunfire is coming from run for their lives. gunfire is coming from one of Nairobi's most gunfire is coming from one Nairobi's most exclusive malls, the Nairobi's the place wealthy Kenyans and foreigner shops. People said men European leaders men European leaders men dressed in black wearing mask and carrying AK47s moved into the mall, threw grenades and started firing. Desperate people fled. Some managed to escape. But many were killed. Initially, there was an explosion and then maybe 15, 16 shots. First reaction was to jump on the floor and I think everyone in the restaurant did the same thing.We were just sitting there and suddenly all of a sudden, maybe around 12 o'clock, we started hearing gunshots on the ground floor and the first floor.The gunfire moved into the shopping mall. People started running, everybody,
I could hear people screaming, everybody, people were crying around me .Initial reports said it was a robbery. Then police called the gunmen terrorists. One witness described how they separated Muslims from non-Muslims. If you're a Muslim, stand up we come to rescue you. We're not to kill Muslims. People in Mombassa are being killed her. Here we're rescue the Muslims. If you're Muslim stand up and go.Another said the gunmen belonged to the Somalian militant group Al Shabaab. Later army marksmen joined security forces. A military helicopter and armoured cars are also at the scene. The wounded were taken to a nearby hospital. The mood here has been very tense. This is not a common sight in Kenya. We have seen ambulances leaving the building every so often carrying casualties. We've also seen pick-up trucks carrying bodies.Eyewitness spoke to 'Weekend Breakfast' a short time ago and said shots are still being fired inside the shopping mall. They've the shopping cordoned off probably a maybe one, two kilometre radius all around the Westgate Shopping Mall and nobody is allowed in or out and we're told that Special Forces are now inside sweeping the building and trying to figure out exactly where the terrorists are and where they aren't.Are you hearing any gunfire shots or any indication of activity happening inside the shopping centre? Yes. In the last hour we've heard a volley probably every 20 minutes or so.Do we have any knowledge about the number of people who are being held hostage and also the numbers of the gunmen involved? The numbers of hostages is completely unclear. There was complete chaos and it was impossible to figure out what was what. The number of gunmen, the people inside couldn't tell you. I was inside the actual sort of - they have a grocery store where the gunmen were holding a lot of people. That's thought to be only one group and the accounts vary. Some people say there are only three of them and some people say there are small groups of them all over the building. When I was inside, there was gunshots coming from everywhere, so it is pretty hard to tell.You can give us an account of what unfolded while you were there inside the shopping centre? It is pretty crazy. There was a lot of civilians, a lot of wounded people. The terrorists came in and they just unleashed on the civilian population. They threw grenades. They had sophisticated weapons. They looked like they knew exactly what they were doing. They caused pandemonium and chaos. We're looking at least 50 or 60 dead, if not more. It is hard to get a grasp on the numbers because everything was spread out, it is quite a big shopping mall. Like, yes, it was chaos and you didn't know which way to go because there was gunfire coming from every corer.A busy time of day as we understand it here in Australia. It an attack of this nature entirely unexpected? I don't know if you have seen Al Shabaab have claimed that this was their doing on their - through their Twitter accounts. They have said previously that Kenya's forces in Somalia there will be repercussions us being involved with Somalia politics and they said this is the first of many to come.You've mentioned there Special Forces to
that you're expecting Kenyan Special Forces to be coming into the area shortly. You can describe for us the response so far from Government forces.There have actually been pretty awesome under the circumstances. You have to understand that nobody's ever really prepared for these things. 9/11, it was the same sort of chaos where everyone was trying to figure out exactly what happened, who the exactly what happened, who big good guys big good guys and bad guys are. The police were inside and swept the billing fairly quickly. Whilst I was in there there was probably there was probably only two journalists but we saw at least a thousand people being cleared by police and military forces. They did a pretticy awesome job about it.An eyewitness speaking to us there from Nairobi. Uhuru Kenyatta says he will his government will support the families and victims.With the entire nation I stand with the families of those who have lost their lives and extend every deepest condolences. I ask God to give you comfort as you confront this strat this tragedy. I know what you feel having also personally lost very close family members in this attack. My Government will provide the support you will need in the days to come. To those who were injured, I wish you a quick recovery. From the physical and other shocks you underwent today. The Government will be at hand to ensure that your lives return to normal as quickly as possible.Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta. The Australian High Commission in Kenya has told citizens were injured in the attack. The Department of Foreign Affairs is urging Australians in Kenya to stay away from the mall in Nairobi and ex seris says a high degree of caution. and ex seris says a high of caution. Details are becoming scant of caution. becoming scant as it is 3 am there. We will of course keep you updated as developments come to hand. A suicide attack on a funeral in the Iraqi capital Baghdad has killed 57 people and wounded at least another 120. Two bombs were detonated another 120. Two detonated near a tent filled with mourners in the Shi'ite detonated near a tent district of Baghdad known as Sadr City. Another 12 people died in attacks elsewhere in the country, including 10 members of the security forces. It is the latest attack in a surge of sectarian violence which is now reached its highest level in five years. Back home, and a woman has been hit in the shoulder during a drive-by shooting in Sydney's South-West. Emergency services were called to a house in Campbelltown around 4 am this morning after a number of shots were fired. The 26-year-old woman was treated at the scene by paramedics before being Police
taken to Liverpool Hospital. Police are speaking to witnesses who say the shots were fired from a small silver hatchback. Labor leadership aspirant Anthony Albanese says his party was wrong to cut welfare benefits to some single parents. In government, the ALP changed the rules so all single parents were shifted from parenting payments to unemployment benefits when their youngest child turned eight. Labor was criticised for the move because the unemployment benefits left many single parents and their families with less money. Anthony Albanese has indicated to the ABC's Insiders's program that he'd revisit the issue if his colleagues and party members select him as leader.We also need to acknowledge, I think, where we got it wrong and areas like, I think, the sole parent payments is an area where we made a mistake. We essentially meant that some of the most vulnerable people ended up with less income, but perhaps just as importantly to them, to those I've spoken to, there was a lack of respect, I think, for the role that they play as single parents.Anthony Albanese. A small community south of Darwin may soon have its own power plant but forget coal, gas or solar. This one is fed on trees. In an Australian first, a company is looking at generating power from its African mahogany plantation.In the Douglas Daly 13,000 hectares of African mahogany trees have been growing sin 2006. They're part of an emerging timber industry in the North. Tractors have started the first round of thinning. A harvesting process to get rid of weaker trees to create room for the best to survive and spread out. This paddock will be thinned from around 1000 trees a hectare to just 600. Mahogany Australia have come up with a bold idea of what to do with the woodchips. We're very keen on developing a power plant in the Douglas Daly and from biomass which will energy plant. which will be a renewable
energy plant. We've entered into a heads of agreement with
another company into a heads of agreement another company that's listed on the Australian stockmarket and they're evaluating and the moment.The plant would take and they're evaluating that at
the take about 18 months to the moment.The plant would take about 18 months to build
and take about 18 months and feed power to the local school, tourist school, Sandalwood operations and
research farm. Replacing diesel generators that cost about 35 cent a kilowatt per hour. It is big news. Power and water can buy renewable energy credits. We might spin-off biochar which can go into soil improvement as well.The trees take 20 years to reach their harvest height and will be thinned every year from now.Meaning there's a consistent supply of wood fuel. The concept is working well abroad, particularly in Germany, but is yet to make an appearance in Australia. The African mahogany company is seeking some Government funding and says it is about halfway through the planning process for grow your own power. To sport with Adam Stephen. IsRetiring Sydney Swans player Jude Bolton says his side was completely outclassed in last night's preliminary final against Fremantle. The Dockers dominated this game in Perth leading by 39 points at halftime and as much as nine goals at one stage in the last quarter. Five late Swans' goals helped close the gap but that wasn't nearly enough. Fremantle ended up winning by 25 points to make it through to its first ever AFL grand final. This will see the AFL's best defensive side playing the best attacking team, Hawthorn, in the big one at the MCG next Saturday. The Melbourne Storm's season is over after they were beat Ben by the Newcastle Knights in last night's Newcastle night's NRL sign in Melbourne. The Knights led by 14 points Earl will I in the second half before the Earl will I in before the reigning premiers ran in two late tries. It is the first time Newcastle has won in Melbourne in nine years. The Knights will now play the for a
Sydney Roosters next Saturday for a place in the NRL grand final. Wallabies' captain James Horwill says upcoming matches in South Africa and Argentina will give his side an opportunity to put aside any off-field issues. Australia heads to Cape Town minus James Oklamhoma after the outside back was suspended over last week's alleged drunken incident at the Perth Airport. The Wallabies' sit in third place on the rugby championship table after beating Argentina last weekend by just a single point. In the English Premier League overnight Chelsea has moved to the top of the table with a two-nil win over Fulham. Southampton beat Liverpool one-nil to hand the Reds their first loss of the season while Everton had a 3-2 away win over West Ham United. In golf, Sweden's Henrik Stenson is just one round away from claiming $10 million. He leads the USPGA tour's end of season championship by four shots. Australian Adam Scott started the day in second place but a bad bout of the flu saw him struggle and finished a third-round in a tie for 10th, nine shots off the pace. And it's groundhog's day in San Francisco where unfavourable winds have again forced organisers to call off races in the America's Cup. Team New Zealand leads the America
