Government's seized on Malcolm

Turnbull's latest contribution

to the carbon tax debate. The

former Liberal leader says it Australia would be acting ahead is embarrassing to suggest

of the world by putting a price on carbon. The opposition

leader had shrugged off the

remarks but privately Coalition

MPs with fuming.There are two

ways to get businesses to cut

their emissions - proposing a big stick proposing a big stick but Tony

Abbott is offering billions of

dollars worth of incentives. He

talked up the need for quality

control. If you get dud product

of the Coalition are after

Malcolm Turnbull's climate change speech. If Margaret

Abbott's comments did appear to contradict Tony contradict Coalition policy but

did appear to Abbott's comments about global inaction. The Chinese aren't

going ahead with one, the

Americans aren't going ahead

with one and the Indians aren't

going ahead with should we do something until

the Indians and Chinese do

something. Those of us that have represented Australia at international conferences on

these issues, know how incredibly embarrassing

statements like that are. Parts

of the speech could have been

written by Julia Gillard. It is

absolutely clear that within

the Coalition there are very

different views about putting a

price on

things in his own way and he is entitled to do that. Not

everyone thinks so. It is

important all shadow ministers

concentrate on their own

general rule in politics. Other portfolios. I think that

Liberals are fuming rather than

smiling. Behind the scenes they

are calling Malcolm Turnbull

destructive and a loose cannon

and other things that cannot be

repeated in this time slot.

Some want him sacked from the

front bench. Next week the political climate will change.

The milk discounting war is

set to continue. The Australian Commission has ruled Competition and Consumer

didn't Commission has ruled Coles when it dramatically cut milk didn't breach competition law when it dramatically cut milk

prices earlier this year. The

retailer welcomed the decision

but Dairy Farmers say it proves the competition watchdog the competition watchdog is a toothless tiger. Coles decision

to sell a litre of its home

brand milk for $1 drew

accusation of predatory pricing from come petter tos and Dairy

Farmers but the ACCC says it is

all aboveboard. Coles didn't

price cutting does not necessarily constitute

predatory pricing. Coles

welcomed the ACCC

decision. This is a cut that we

funded ourselves and we didn't

believe there would be any

impact on Dairy Farmers as a result. Australian Dairy Farmers limited is outraged. What do you expect,

the ACCC is toothless and not

likely to come out in favour of anything that would be against

the major retailers. The

thrown Greece another lifeline agreeing on a new bailout deal

worth nearly $150 billion. The politically contentious

agreement will not only help

the country pay its bills it should help prevent the debt

crisis from spreading.

Crisis averted or simply

delayed. After hours of debate

finally a second bailout,

bigger than expected, but this

time the banks and other

private lenders will share the

pain. We improved the Greek

measures to stop the risk of

contagion and finally we

committed to improved eurozone

crisis management. After a

split between the French and

German leaders over who pays

what was resolved now everyone

has to sell the package to increasingly sceptical voters. TRANSLATION: I've

always made it clear that today is not someone standing up and

waving a magic wand but it is

about helping Greece return to

the path of stability, to

controllable process. The deal trigger a controlled and

gives the Greek Government a reduced interest rate and

extends the life of the loans. We now have a program

and a package of decisions

which create a sustainable path for

for Greece, a sustainable debt management for Greece. European stability fund will have more

full-blown crisis but with

interest rates and terms being

changed, some read that as a default. Anything which the maturity, the repayment

Greece previously, whether it date, of any loan made to

is a bond or a standard loan, would be a default. Certainly the markets liked what they

saw. Bank stocks led the charge

but no one is predicting this

euro crisis is over.Two people

have died in a helicopter crash

in Sydney's north. On a day

when severe weather warning was

in place. Businessman and grandfather Bruce Campbell was Coast when grandfather Bruce Campbell was on his way home to

Coast when the chopper came

down in rugged bushland and

plunged off a cliff face. The

pilot, Col Greenwood, was also killed instantly. Strong killed instantly. Strong winds

and heavy rain are hampering

efforts to retrieve the men's bodies.The mangled wreckage of

the Bell 2066 long ranger was a sight emergency services say

they will never forget. The

chopper has been destroyed. It

is a horrific scene for all crews working there. At 9:15am the

Turramurra and then Turramurra and then plunged into a ravine in the Lane Cove

National Park. I heard the

helicopter engine very loud and

it abruptly stopped. One theory

is in the windy and rainy conditions it clipped a

powerline, flipped over and

crashed into the cliff face. A

number of witnesses say they

saw a part fly off the become

of the helicopter. The chopper

was owned by 65-year-old Bruce Campbell. The father of three

was the owner of a thriving

concrete mixes business. He died alongside

35-year-old Col Greenwood on a

routine trip from Sydney to the

Central Coast. The accident scene was extremely hazardous for rescuers. There were

several fires - small fires -

burning at the time and our

crews utilised our rope packs

and harnesses and were able to

gain access down the sclif with

extinguishers and extinguish

the fire. It coincide ed with a

fresh warning that pilots are

the dangers of flying in poor

weather. While it is still too

early to tell if the rain

played a significant role in

the accident the

weather has made the recovery operation treacherous and

painstaking. The recovery operation was halted due to the

slippery conditions. The bodies slippery conditions. The bodies

in and wrackage will remain

under guard until they can be retrieved. Police have are investigating investigating possible links between millions of dollars

worth of mortgage fraud and at least

the execution of Sydney businessman Michael McGurk.

Police have arrested the Hells

Angels Sydney President, Felix

Lyle, and charged him with

several fraud offences. They

say he is part of a say he is part of a larger criminal organisation. Felix

Lyle isn't the first arrest by

the police unit set up to

combat serious mortgage fraud but he is considered the highest

highest profile. It is a

significant arrest. I do

believe that there will be

further arrests in the very near future. The 54-year-old

was charged himself to police yesterday.

The allegations involve The allegations involve the

financing of earth moving

equipment, Harley Davidson

motorcycles and this property

at Alexandria in inner Sydney.

Police say the loans were obtained through false

documents and names. Those names are either people that

are deceased or in vulnerable

positions. There have now been

16 arrests involving $15

million worth of alleged fraud.

There are possible ties to at

least two least two murders. Some of the

aspects of this strike and its operations have links

into other crimes and some of

those crimes include homicides. Police recently charged Terrence

charged Terrence Reddy with

similar fraud offences. He was

an associate of the murdered Sydney businessman Michael

McGurk. Detectives say fraud is

a growing trained in organised

crime, not just among bikie

gang members. Lyle's lawyer say the

the charges have been blown out

of proportion by police. All I

can tell you at this stage is

that he will be vigorously

defending these matters and I can't release the Lyle was granted police bail

Among the conditions is that he not associate with Terrence

Reddy. Australians could have

sensored or banned. The average

age of a gamer in Australia is

30. That has to be recognised.

At the same time we have had

too many games in the MA classification that are played

onto by adults lawfully overseas, that will change the introduction of the R18 classification. That means some

games will be harder for teens to buy. to buy. The changes were

welcomed by gamers at an Adelaide convention. Little kids shouldn't be able to play

really violent games and it

also gives us the older - able

to play games at its full potential instead of it being

sensored and cutback. On a

global scale Australia can be taken more seriously because

other nations have a proper classification system and classification system and we
