    I permanently left Australia. I was born there but will never return. I thought about moving to North Korea or Saudi Arabia for more freedoms.

    Australia bans absolutely everything . Their latest ban, on vapes is done to protect their tax on cigarettes. They are happy for countless to die in excruciating pain from cigarettes for this. The tax they earn from this more than covers all of Medicare which is all but non existent now anyway . A truly evil and disgusting country.

    I'm Australian and I'll tell you now the Australian government keeps getting it wrong. It costs about $40 for a packet of smokes minimum for a packet of 20! People have turned to illegal vapes and illegal smokes because the tax is ridiculous! Single use vapes with nicotine have been illegal for a while now and the police do nothing! They even use them! $40 = about £22.

    Vapers are 3x more likey to start smoking. The tobacco industry here is furious about it. The vapes are being sold to pre teen kids from shops set up near schools. For once a government is doing a good thing.

    I get ppl vapping to quit smoking but I don’t get kids taking up vapping to be cool. They look like a steam train 😂. I want to laugh everytime I’m fogged.

    Be assured, this move by the Australian government is only about protecting tobacco taxation revenues.

    This is a total " kneejerk" reaction from the Australian Government…. mainly due to the fact that they cannot get a lot of money from vaping as they do from their" tobacco excise taxing "…. in the UK vaping has been hailed by health professionals as a great way to stop smoking……obviously the Australian Government would prefer people to smoke cigarettes !……….

    Face it, life is overrated and the government just expects you to work all effing day, fill their coffers with tax money, and go without any ways to relieve stress.

    Australia has not banned vaping!
    Australia banned single used disposable vaping because they are a fire risk and people keep throwing them in the bush!

    Makes sense to ban an alternative to smoking and a proven way to kick the smoking addiction, so smokers who can't quit, have to keep shelling out $50+ a day. Economics LMAO. And on the Vaping is a gateway to Smoking. Who would give up a blueberry pie for Camel Sh!t?

    It shows how ignorant the government are. Of course tobacco companies want vaping banned, its the most effective way to stop smoking.
    It's all about money, they don't care about anyone's health. Dishonest government as usual.

    Cannot wait to move out of Australia. Just by the way to any utter clown who thinks this will stop anything – It's beyond easy to import THC vapes into Australia. You think customs are stopping nicotine vapes? Educate your drop kick kids, stop trying to be a fascist pig.

US journalist Evan Gershkovich jailed in Russia | BBC News

Published

on



US journalist Evan Gershkovich has been found guilty of spying by a Russian court and sentenced to 16 years in a high-security prison, after a secretive trial labelled a “sham” by his employer, his family and the White House.

The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reporter was arrested by security services in March 2023 while working as a reporter in the city of Yekaterinburg, about 1,600km (1,000 miles) east of Moscow.

Russia accuses him of working for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), accusations that Gershkovich, the WSJ and the US strongly deny.

He’s the first US journalist to be convicted for espionage in Russia since the Cold War ended more than 30 years ago.

UN top court says Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories is illegal | BBC News

Published

on



The UN’s top court has said Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories is against international law, in a landmark opinion.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) said Israel should stop settlement activity in the occupied West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza and end its “illegal” occupation of those areas as soon as possible.

The court’s advisory opinion is not legally binding but still carries significant political weight. It marks the first time the ICJ has delivered a position on the legality of the 57-year occupation.

The ICJ, based at The Hague in the Netherlands, has been examining the issue since the beginning of last year, at the request of the UN General Assembly.
