SUPREME COURT: Jill Meagher's rapist and killer, Adrian Ernest Bayley, has been sentenced to a minimum term of 35 years in jail.
THE LATEST NEWS AND HIGHLIGHTS
NEIL MITCHELL: It is claimed this incident unfolded at Leigh Montagna’s house. I don’t believe it did. I believe it was at the then home of another current St Kilda player. I believe it involved two girls and two players: Milne and Montagna.
PHOTO GALLERY: Seen Something newsworthy, interesting or funny? Send a video or picture of it to Neil Mitchell! Neil will give away one FUJI Finepix digital camera each week thanks to Harvey Norman - worth over $300.
NEIL MITCHELL: Adrian Ernest Bayley, one of the most reviled men in Australia, will this morning be sentenced for killing Jill Meagher. There is much speculation about the sentence, but it is up to the judge obviously.
PARKING WARNING: Council parking inspectors have developed infamy in certain areas around Melbourne, but one South Yarra hairdresser received a pleasant surprise when he found two inspectors next to his car.
TOM ELLIOTT: Figures out today show that 30 per cent of all suicides across Australia are committed by people over 65. I reckon that people my age need to do more to respect and appreciate those in the twilight of their lives.
LONDON: Charles Saatchi has accepted a police caution for assault after being photographed with his hand around his wife Nigella Lawson's throat. Photographs which appear to show Saatchi grabbing Lawson's throat were the result of a "playful tiff", he said.
HAVE YOUR SAY: A former Homicide Squad detective people convicted of traffic offences – including drink-driving – should not be prohibited from joining the police force. Do you consider drink-driving to be a social offence or a criminal offence?
RESPONSE: Dee Dee Dunleavy has issued a statement saying she is 'mortified' that anyone would think she was 'bullying or victimising' Nigella Lawson after receiving a 'torrent of abuse' for her call for the celebrity chef to 'make a stand on domestic violence'.
TOM ELLIOTT: I think people have overreacted towards what Dee Dee wrote. Yes, both her timing and choice of words were poor and she should have known better. We all need to accept that sometimes people make mistakes and say the wrong thing.
NEIL MITCHELL: The price of fame. Nigella Lawson and those awful photos of her in a domestic dispute with her husband. Now there is the argument that it is up to Nigella to take a stand against domestic violence. Bit rough, she is the victim in this.
ANOTHER MENU: Neil Mitchell says he can’t see the point of Leunig’s cartoon in The Age today, calling it ‘tacky’ and ‘a little offensive’. Do you think the parody of the ‘Kentucky Fried Julia Gillard’ menu crossed the line?
CONTENT WARNING: The owner of the restaurant where the fundraising function for Liberal National Party candidate Mal Brough was held, now made infamous for the 'Moroccan Quail' denigrating the Prime Minister, says he created the menu as a 'private joke'.
