How Jamie Oliver's restaurant empire Jamie's Italian Union Jacks and Barbecoa fell from

Food critics and industry experts claim the overpriced, mid-range meals on offer at Jamie Oliver's three High Street restaurants were a recipe for disaster. While Oliver's (opictured centre with his wife Jools) recipe books flew off the shelves in their millions and his TV shows continued to rake in viewers, his own food outlets failed to meet the same standards. Restaurant critic Marina O'Loughlin said she would have to be 'paid' to go back to Jamie's Italian in London's Westfield. Market analyst Fiona Cincotta claimed the menu was 'too expensive for mid-range dining and not high-end enough to compete at the more expensive end of the market'.

'These people don't have electricity mate': Barnaby Joyce says voters are more interested in affordable power than climate change policy in fiery rant

The former National Party leader claimed the Adani mine, which Labor promised to scrap (protesters pictured inset), needed to be built to give Australians affordable power and local jobs. The ALP was handed a stunning defeat by the Coalition in large part due to it losing two seats in north Queensland, where the mine is to be built. He said more than 100,000 families couldn't afford to pay their increasingly expensive power bills and so had no electricity in their houses.
