Jacqui Lambie’s repeated her demands for a return to the death penalty for treason and sedition.

"I'm asking for anyone that helps, assists any of the terrorists who are trying to take out our own defence force personnel, that the death penalty be re-introduced but that be determined by a jury."

There's fresh hope for Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran with their transfer to 'death island' postponed.

Jakarta says the island doesn't have enough facilities to carry out their executions the delay will allow their families to spend more time with them.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop told Triple M’s The Hot Breakfast in studio this morning that the extra time will also be used to plead their case.

"We will use whatever time we have available to us to engage with the Indonesian government at every level," Julie Bishop said on Triple M's The Hot Breakfast.

"Pleading with them not to execute Mr Sukumaran and Mr Chan who are changed men, they have rehabilitated."

Listen To The Full Interview With Julie Bishop:

 

After the serious discussion was done, Mick Molloy stormed the studio with an impromptu question that left Julie Bishop looking for the 'dump button' and calling to stop the interview. Hear what Mick said in the audio above.

Widespread Greyhound Live Baiting Uncovered

ABC Four Corners' program aired some disturbing footage of live piglets, rabbits and possums being used to 'blood' the dogs

The State Government has vowed to clean up Greyhound Racing and stamp out 'live baiting'.

ABC Four Corners' program aired some disturbing footage of live piglets, rabbits and possums being used to 'blood' the dogs.

Lyn White from Animals Australia has told Triple M's The Hot Breakfast it's far from an isolated event.

“We’ve lodged evidence that directly implicates 70 trainers,” Lyn White said on Triple M’s The Hot Breakfast.

“But the thing is there was at least double that amount at tracks where live baiting was occurring.

“It was simply a matter of chance that the animals, the injured animals, had died by the time that their dogs were training.”

Spring Street has now cancelled this Friday night's Greyhound Racing awards night, saying it's no  time to celebrate.

Turnbull Points Finger At 'Captain' Abbott

Federal communications minister Malcolm Turnbull has pointed the finger at "captain" Tony Abbott over the sacking of chief whip Philip Ruddock

The Hot Breakfast Discuss Malcolm Turnbull's QandA Performance:

SKY News' Graham Richardson calls in to discuss Malcolm Turnbull and his performance on ABC's QandA last night with Eddie, Mick and Luke on Triple M's Hot Breakfast.

 

Turnbull: Abbott Made 'Captain's Call' On Ruddock

Malcolm Turnbull has distanced himself from the sacking of chief whip Philip Ruddock and pointed the finger at "captain" Tony Abbott.

The communications minister says the prime minister is the one who has to explain the decision to dump Mr Ruddock following an attempted leadership spill.

"That's his call. But I have to say, I was very sad to see the announcement," Mr Turnbull said on ABC TV's Q&A on Monday night.

"(Tony Abbott) is the one who has to explain it."

Mr Abbott dropped the Liberal Party veteran in a shock announcement on Friday, replacing him with Queensland MP Scott Buchholz.

After praising Mr Ruddock as an "icon" of the party, Mr Turnbull said he wasn't consulted over the decision to sack him.

"I don't know who (Abbott) consulted. He is the boss. He is the captain, he can make a captain's call," Mr Turnbull said.

Time and public opinion would tell whether the decision was right or wrong, he said.

Defending the overhaul of the whip's office, Mr Abbott said he needed to be more in touch with the backbench after the revolt that nearly cost him the top job.

As time runs out for Bali Nine duo Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, Triple M’s The Hot Breakfast this morning discussed the PM Tony Abbott’s efforts, called for an inquiry into the AFP and talked about the Boycott Bali campaign.

Eddie Calls For Full Inquiry:

“They should do a full inquiry into the Australian Federal Police and how the hell this happened in the first place,” Eddie McGuire said on Triple M’s The Hot Breakfast.

“There’s others coming out now saying this was a complete balls-up from start to finish.”

Darce On The Boycott Bali Campaign:

“I would love to see the Prime Minister do a deal and sort this out directly,” Luke Darcy said On Triple M’s The Hot Breakfast.

“I don’t think we need to destroy the Balinese economy or the Balinese people over this, it’s not their fight, it’s their President’s fight and I think we can sort it all out without having to avoid the whole country.”

Mick’s View: 

“I think as a country though you need to register some kind of ‘it’s not business as usual’ though,” Mick Molloy said on Triple M’s Hot Breakfast.

“Whether that’s a boycott or not the Indonesian government need to know that this is not OK.

“So how do you make that point? 

“I don’t know the answer by the way but I’d like to think that there’s a way of indicating our displeasure to the Indonesian government that says we’re not copping it, it’s not acceptable, there is not normal transmission of programming, you need to really sort this out.

“Something needs to happen, it’s not on, this is not right.”

Latest: Meeting To Outline Bali Nine Duo Execution

Australian embassy officials will attend a Jakarta meeting where Indonesia will convey the formalities in its plan to execute Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran.

Indonesia's Foreign Ministry has invited all embassies with citizens to be executed to the Monday meeting, which could mean the executions will take place this week.

The meeting won't provide the date but it will discuss the provision of 72 hours notice, access to prisoners for family, and the conduct of foreign media coverage, a ministry spokesman says.

When Indonesia executed one Indonesian and five foreign nationals last month, the meeting with embassies, the announcement of the 72-hours notice and the executions all happened within the week.

Lawyers for Chan and Sukumaran will seek a meeting with Attorney-General HM Prasetyo on Monday, to ask for the executions to be delayed pending action in the administrative court.

They've lodged a challenge of the presidential decrees denying the men clemency without examining their cases or giving reasons.

The lawyers have also made a complaint with the Indonesian Judicial Commission, based on public comments by Chan and Sukumaran's former lawyer Muhammad Rifan.

Mr Rifan last week alleged there had been "interference" in the case that saw the Australians sentenced to death when they should have been jailed for life.

Their complaint claims the judges in the original trial offered a more lenient sentence in exchange for cash.

Mr Prasetyo says this round of executions takes more planning, because prisoners have to be transferred from various jails to the execution location, Nusakambangan island, off Central Java.

Authorities have permission to move Chan and Sukumaran from Bali's Kerobokan jail, and would like to do it "as soon as possible".

Kerobokan prison governor Sudjonggo told reporters he is ready for the transfer "any time, any day".

He said Chan and Sukumaran - who are considered leaders in the prison for their tireless work to help the rehabilitation and welfare of others - seemed somewhat resigned to the executions.

"They have surrendered even though there's still legal efforts going on," he said on Sunday.

"When clemency is rejected, there's no other option, what else can we do?

"Let's just pray. Who knows, there can be miracles."

Indonesian President Joko Widodo insists the Bali Nine duo and other drug offenders sentenced to death should be executed to shock the nation out of a "drugs emergency".

Prime Minister Tony Abbott says Australia will continue with "11th-hour" efforts to save their lives.

"What we are asking of Indonesia is what Indonesia asks of other countries when its citizens are on death row," Mr Abbott said on Sunday.

"If it's right for Indonesia to ask and expect some kind of clemency, it's surely right for us to ask and expect some kind of clemency."
