How Australian taxpayers will need to spend BILLIONS to transition from petrol and diesel to electric cars (which start at $47k for a VERY basic model) - as the ACT pushes ahead with a BAN on combustion engines by 2035
Australia is 'lagging behind the rest of the world' and will need '100 times' the infrastructure it currently has if it is to ban all petrol cars for electric - but experts say it could become a 'superpower'.

Will America's conspiracy king finally be silenced? Deranged radio host Alex Jones made millions peddling far-fetched fantasies to the gullible. But after his sickening lies about the Sandy Hook massacre, he's finally been made to pay, writes TOM LEONARD
TOM LEONARD: Americans don't have too much to cheer about right now - but they certainly savoured the moment when conspiracy-theory king Alex Jones was finally silenced. The bombastic radio host, being sued by parents of victims of the Sandy Hook school massacre for claiming the 2012 tragedy was all a hoax, had just been told that his lawyer had committed a monumental blunder. He'd accidentally sent two years' worth of potentially damaging text messages from Jones's phone to the lawyer acting for the parents - messages, he was told, that completely disproved the shock jock's claims in court that he'd never mentioned the shootings in any private communications and strongly suggested he'd perjured himself.

Woman opens up about her Botox 'lip flip' procedure, which she describes as the 'most annoying thing ever', saying it left her struggling to rub her lips together, speak, and drink
A woman who underwent a Botox 'lip flip' procedure has slammed the results - saying the injections have left her unable to drink a cup of tea or speak properly. TikTok user Pamela, from Dublin, opened up about the treatment in a recent video on the platform, describing the results as the 'most annoying thing ever' and urging others not to try it themselves. Lip flips are a popular non-permanent cosmetic procedure, in which small amounts of Botox are injected above the upper lip. By relaxing the muscle, the lip is said to 'flip out', creating a fuller-looking pout, without fillers. However, because the jabs freeze the muscles, there can be some unintended side effects, which Pamela highlighted in her video, which has garnered 1.9 million views. She revealed that she is experiencing some of these effects, and is currently unable to blow a cup of tea to cool it down or apply lipstick.
