Tips and rumours

Jonesing for a stadium ... no jihad for Jim? ... Tsiolkas defends Doyle ...

From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours … 

Ayres one's grievances? Crikey is hearing a a potential new twist in the ongoing controversy around New South Wales' planned $2 billion stadium. Is part of the reason NSW Sports Minister (and partner of federal Defence Minister Marise Payne) Stuart Ayres is supporting the stadium proposal to woo talk back king Alan Jones? A tipster tells us that in return for Ayres spruiking the project, Jones (who's on the board of the Sydney Cricket Ground Trust which is behind the push for the new stadium) has promised to throw his support behind Ayres to replace Gladys Berejiklian as premier. Is a spill in the offing? Know more? Send us an anonymous tip here.

    Evil only triumphs when good men (and women) standby and do nothing. You can decide which story this relates to.

    It’s the SCG trust board that needs demolishing.

    I’m with you Ms Tips. I suspect those poor “innocent” Public Servants, who were conned into that advertisement from hell, will probably need decades of care and counseling, to live down their darkest hour.
    On the Internet, a true “dog” never dies.

    Unfortunately it seems that Bandt has apologised to the Hero of Fallujah

    Tsiolkas defends Doyle, calling people who have faith in trial by media “moral idiots”. Presumably this includes Doyle himself who resigned because of it.
