Of course, if Senator Bishop (see below) had been smarter and faster when asked to name the three first Europeans to cross the Blue Mountains, she would have have replied cheerfully 'Wouldn't have the foggiest. See? I'm a walking, talking, living-doll example of why we need to overhaul the teaching of history.'
Think of the press she would have got. Think of the goodwill that she, and by extension the line she's pushing, would have engendered. But I've never yet seen a pollie who wouldn't sooner be taken away gibbering on a stretcher than say, in answer to a question, 'I don't know.'
