“Around about Epping he went into the toilet and didn’t come out until we reached Central. It was around twenty minutes he was in there. When he came out I said, “this rather awkward isn’t it.’’

Seven reporter Aela Callan reports on how NSW Education minister John Della Bosca hid in a toilet on a train in order to avoid a television crew. In contrast, his wife Belinda Neal called the police after a Channel 7 reporter mocking called “Don’t you know who I am?” to her.  Neal’s office released the following statement:

“This morning a team from A Current Affair followed Ms Neal from her home to her electorate office and forced their way through a secure area at the rear of Ms Neal’s office and the Commonwealth Bank and then pursued Ms Neal into her office. Police are presently investigating the incident in relation to entering enclosed lands and assault on Ms Neal. Police are understood to have asked A Current Affair for tapes of the incident.’’
