Proof that there is further for UK radio to fall

I haven't seen anything on this here, but an Australian radio show presenter recently thought it'd be a good idea to a) attach a 14 year old girl to a lie detector, b) on live radio, c) ask her about her sex life, and d) reply with 'is that the only experience you've had?' when she said she'd been raped age 12.

Not that the mother was much better, given she apparently knew about the rape.

The Sydney Morning Herald's story. Looking for the presenter's name gets a lot of other Australian coverage - he's been fired from various places.
