Surfing was called also off on Tuesday when a two-metre mako shark was spotted breaching about 90 metres from competitors. .

Britain To Byron: Chef Darren Robertson's Food Journey

Darren Robertson is not exactly what you imagine when you think about a successful chef. He's nothing like the ill-tempered caricature of a blustering red-faced bloke in chef's whites, barking orders at underlings. The 40-year-old British chef behind Three Blue Ducks is a towering, warm, smiling type of man. He's the kind of guy you'd like to pop round and cook dinner for your mates before all heading to the pub. He calls his suppliers "brother" and he doles out his big grin with ease.

Peter Dutton Really Hates The ABC And Fairfax

Immigration Minister Peter Dutton has taken aim at the ABC, attacking the Q&A program as a "waste of taxpayers money" and seemingly claiming victory in the wake of the broadcaster's axing of Muslim activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied, saying "one down, many to go". The Minister has previously accused the ABC -- and Fairfax -- of conducting a "jihad" to bring down the Coalition Government, but he has doubled down on Thursday in the wake of a Q&A which allegedly downplayed the threat posed by Islamic fundamentalism and inspired an article which has been roundly condemned for suggesting the ABC should have been bombed instead of Manchester.

Quadrant Publishes Article Suggesting ABC Should Be Bombed

Quadrant -- which bills itself as "the leading general intellectual journal of ideas, literature, poetry and historical and political debate published in Australia" -- published a piece on Tuesday, just hours after the Manchester attack, titled 'The Manchester Bomber's ABC Pals' which criticised the ABC's Q&A program for allegedly downplaying the risks of terrorism on Monday night. In a line toward the end of the piece, Quadrant online editor Roger Franklin wrote "had there been a shred of justice, that blast would have detonated in an Ultimo TV studio", referencing the ABC's Sydney headquarters. if such an event had occurred, Franklin wrote, "none of the panel's likely casualties would have represented the slightest reduction in humanity's intelligence, decency, empathy or honesty."
