  • The Chaser project new ad onto Opera House as Jones apologises for Louise Herron interview

He cut her off immediately as she attempted to explain the heritage listing of the Opera House and then said he would be calling the Premier. "But if they're going to, they may as well give Victoria a plug".

On Monday National Trust NSW conservation director Graham Quint suggested the move to project advertising onto the Opera House could be illegal, given its commercial nature.

Satirical group The Chaser posted a video of the prank on Tuesday morning where they can also be seen shining the message, which was accompanied by Alan Jones' purported mobile number, onto NSW Parliament House and the NSW Art Gallery.

Robertson: Title race not just between Liverpool and City
The result means City go top, ahead of both Chelsea and Liverpool on goal difference, with all three teams tied on 20 points. Liverpool are outstanding at what they do but they can not rely on their high-tempo approach every single time.

When the sails were lit up at 7.39pm, the crowd let out an enormous boo and screamed "shame on you", "our house not for sale" and "turn it off" during the 20-minute illumination.

MORE than 3000 people descended on the Sydney Opera House overnight to protest the Racing NSW projections on the iconic building.

The movement is part of the backlash following NSW premier Gladys Berejiklian agreeing to let Everest project the ad. "This is much bigger than one Prime Minister, or one party, or even one government", he said.

Aaron Ramsey's goal that marked "the return of Gunners"
Furthermore, Keown believes Ozil's high wages are the reason why Aaron Ramsey has not agreed a new contract with the Gunners. Substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got in on the action, grabbing two goals in a memorable 30-minute cameo.

"We are known for the Sydney Opera House; to use it to advertise a horse race is just taking advantage of it", said Aideen Keane, 16, brandishing a torch as she sat on the Opera House steps, with her mother, Lesa Hogan.

The government's decision came after a top radio "shock jock", Alan Jones, urged the Opera House's boss to resign or be sacked for objecting to the promotion.

The protest follows Racing NSW's decision earlier in the day to cancel its live barrier draw for Saturday's $13 million race, citing security risks amid ongoing public outrage.

Elections: PDP Announces Atiku Abubakar As Presidential Candidate
Daily Trust learnt that delegates were said to be richer with some hard currencies from presidential aspirants. The PDP vote was held in the oil hub of Port Harcourt, in the heartland of the southern Niger delta.

In the letter, Heritage Council chair Stephen Davies said the decision goes against existing management policy and may impact the UNESCO expectation for World Heritage sites. The guidelines have always been stretched in the part and the commercialisation of the Opera House has always been there.
