Commissioner Gra eme Innes, who is blind, lodged more than 60 complaints in the Federal Magistrates Court about announcements. In court yesterday, Magistrate Kenneth Raphael ruled Railcorp had breached the Disability Discrimination Act. Ex-PMs TV spot Kevin Rudd SYDNEY: The Sunrise Kid is back. Kevin Rudd yesterday triggered fresh talk about his ambitions after returning to the high profile weekly breakfast television show that made him a star. The former prime minister resumed hostilities with Liberal frontbencher Joe Hockey in Sunrises Big Guns of Politics segment after the program dumped Gillard backer and Environment Minister Tony Burke. Mr Rudd used the show to become a household name in Opposition through the middle part of last decade, helping propel him into the Opposition leadership and eventually into The Lodge in 2007. Embattled federal MP Craig Thomson visits McArdle Lawyers in Sydney yesterday Picture: CRAIG GREENHILL Apologise or else Barry OFarrell SYDNEY: NSW Premier Barry OFarrell says he has nothing to apologise for after making a cheeky comment about federal MP Craig Thomson being stripsearched before his court appearance on fraud charges. Thomsons lawyer, Chris McArdle, has threatened to sue Mr OFarrell unless he apologises for comments he made yesterday while defending corrective services officers who conducted the search. Thomson has described the search as a little bit odd and Mr McArdle says the search was designed to intimidate his client before his court appearance on the NSW central coast on Thursday. The lawyer described the officers as goons and galoots. But Mr OFarrell said the search was standard procedure and Thomson and his lawyer should calm down because after all . . . this whole situation arose because Mr Thomson allegedly was too keen to get his kit off in front of strangers. Thomson has consistently denied allegations he misused union funds to pay for prostitutes, air travel, entertainment and cash withdrawals when he was national secretary of the Health Services Union (HSU). Mr OFarrells comments infuriated Mr McArdle, who threatened to sue unless the Premier apologised. He (the Premier) has used his credibility to prejudge our client. This is utterly and completely unacceptable, he said on Fairfax Radio. The lawyer yesterday demanded the Premier apologise within 24 hours and admit his remarks were unwise and unwarranted. But Mr OFarrell told Fairfax Radio he had nothing to apologise for. He admitted his comment was flippant and cheeky. But I just hasten to explain to Mr McArdle, who is a lawyer, that I did use the word allegations, he said. New charges laid MELBOURNE: The man accused of raping and murdering Jill Meagher has been charged with seven new offences. Adrian Ernest Bayley, 41, appeared on the charges, including three counts of rape, in Melbourne Magistrates Court yesterday. The seven new counts relate to an alleged attack on a woman in Elwood in November 2000. Bayley is charged with raping and murdering Ms Meagher, 29, an Irishborn ABC staffer who disappeared from a Melbourne laneway in September last year.
