The Chaser Projected Alan Jones' Phone Number Onto The Opera House

  • Broadcaster Alan Jones now says he regrets his comments

"Racing NSW Stewards today have conducted the barrier draw for the 2018 The TAB Everest in preparation for this evening's barrier draw event", a Racing NSW release said.

As a result, the body requested that betting for The Everest be suspended until the results are beamed onto the sails of the Sydney Opera House on Tuesday night.

The NSW government is facing a growing backlash this week after it ordered the Opera House to display a promotion for Racing NSW over the objections of the building's caretakers.

Political manipulator Jones, whose superpower is to be able to wrap gutless Liberal Party politicians around his little orifice, is behind the verbal bullying of Opera House CEO Louise Herron.

On his Tuesday morning show, Jones said the protest should not go ahead.

On his Sky News program, shortly after the sails were illuminated, Alan Jones labelled the light-based protest as "childish stuff" from a "latte-sipping mob".


Petition organiser and Sydney father Mike Woodcock hopes Premier Gladys Berejiklian will accept the petition he started on Friday, after the coalition overturned a decision by Opera House management to reject the plan.

More than 265,000 people have signed a petition calling on the NSW government to reverse its decision to allow the advertisement.

Controversy continues to plague The Everest horse race, with Racing NSW now suspending all bets on the event - billed as the "world's richest race on turf" - until this evening citing "security risks".

Racing NSW chief executive Peter V'landys claimed he and other staff members had received death threats.

The NSW premier denied widespread perceptions she had caved in to Jones, who has known ties to the racing industry and owns horses.
