Betting suspended on The Everest until barrier draw revealed

The outrage had already prompted racing authorities to drop plans to hold the barrier draw publicly, so as to avoid "security risks", and betting was suspended from noon until the announcement of the draw result in the evening.

"You don't have a right to fence it off... if this can't be approved you should be sacked because you don't own the Opera House", Jones told Herron in the fiery interview. It should be noted that Herron was upholding the statute of the Opera House in doing so.

The barrier draw will be released via a short light show on the sails of the Opera House which has cause considerable controversy since Friday.

The change.org petition titled Defend our opera house: support Louise Herron, had passed 265,000 signatures by The Mandarin's Tuesday midday publication time.

Since the NSW Government directed the Opera House to allow the promotional material to be projected, the backlash over the decision has reached a boiling point.

A video was taken of the draw by Racing NSW stewards for audit purposes on Tuesday morning.

Luckily for Jones, as it turns out, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian is a gutless Jones puppet can caved in immediately, overturning the actual documented rules of the Sydney Opera House so that Jones' pals could get their way.

In a letter to the premier on Tuesday, the NSW Heritage Council said it was extremely disappointed with the government's decision and described the projection as "inappropriate".

Mr Quint said the legal exemptions allowing projection onto the sails made clear that they must be "non-commercial occasions of brief duration".

Enter The Chaser, who in the early hours of Tuesday morning drove down to Sydney Harbour and projected Jones' phone number along with the words "Advertise Here".

State and federal politicians have weighed in on the stoush, including Prime Minister Scott Morrison, who believed the promotion of the event was a "no-brainer".
