Trickett, who won two gold medals at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and holds three world records, met her young fans and signed autographs. The other special guests were Beijing medallist Andrew Lauterstein and Daniel Arnamnart who is training with the Australian Swimming 2012 target squad. Kids had a whale of a time on the giant inflatables while adults tried out the aquacise and yoga classes. Judge and Lim's issues in chamber SHIREEN KHALIL THE bitter relationship between Strathfield State Labor MP and Fair Trading Minister Virginia Judge and independent councillor Danny Lim is likely to sour even further after last Tuesday night's council meeting. Cr Lim put up 33 motions, 10 of which condemned the minister's involvement in council matters, including failing to take respons- ibility for traffic issues in Underwood Rd, failing to provide good access to Homebush and Flemington railway stations, and failing to provide adequate polic- ing in Strathfield. ''It shows that Virginia has done nothing for Strathfield and on the other hand she is in interfering with council matters,'' Cr Lim said before the meeting. ''Why is she getting involved in the (South St) childcare centre? It's a council matter, not a state matter.'' Cr Lim also continues to chal- lenge Ms Judge to a public debate. ''If she's got nothing to hide, I challenge her to a public debate and a barking debate with my dog Smarty,'' he said. For the fourth time Cr Lim has raised a No Confidence motion in Labor mayor Keith Kwon and the deputy mayor Hope Brett-Bowen. ''He (Cr Kwon) is taking instruc- tions from Virginia,'' Cr Lim said. It has been alleged Ms Judge lobbied to have a police station set up at Strathfield Plaza, but she has denied any involvement in lease negotiations. As previously reported the owners of the shopping centre, Memo Corporation, have donated tens of thousands of dollars to her campaigns over the years. Last week Ms Judge attempted to refer herself to the Independent Commission Against Corruption but failed. ''The letter (from Ms Judge) is not a complaint to the Com- mission. Nor does it purport to be a report from a relevant officer of a reasonable suspicion of corrup- tion,'' an ICAC release stated. ''It is a matter for Parliament what issues it wishes to debate. However, the Commission is not asking the Parliament to restrict debate on any matter, including political donations, by reason of Ms Judge's communication to the Commission.''
