From the report in today's Age about the history-teaching summit:
'Ms Bishop tried to laugh off the question when asked to name the three explorers who became the first Europeans to cross the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney.
"Are we going to play this game, are we?" she chuckled, before launching into rehearsed lines about the summit's aims.
The minister defended state governments' absence from today's summit, saying the meeting was simply an opportunity to gain an insight from experts in the field.'
You'd think she would have been ready for that one, wouldn't you. You really would.
Reminds me of the conservatives who bang on endlessly about the importance of teaching 'the classics' but wouldn't know Pride and Prejudice if it jumped up and bit them on the arse, as is its wont.
