  • Rich wife faces jail for dole rorts

  • Mayweather, Pacquiao bout delivers knockout ticket prices

    Tickets for the megafight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao finally hit the market on Thursday and unless your name is Warren Buffet or Madonna you will probably have to watch the May 2 bout on pay-per-view.

Within minutes of the tickets going public, the market place shifted to resale sites which posted knockout prices of $100,000 and more for ringside seats, putting them beyond the reach of everyone but the world's most rich and famous.

  • $53m for 800 Roebourne Aboriginals

Aboriginal Affairs Advisory Council chairman Michael Hayden said the report proved the need for the Auditor-General to investigate the $4.9 billion spent by the Commonwealth and State governments on Aboriginal West Australians each year.
