The best part about Australia‘s small and provincial media sector is that when one of them make a joke, all of them make exactly the same joke within an hour.
Has any media outlet been able to report the Kazakhstan- education story without mentioning Borat? It was in the lead of ABC News radio.

I don’t want to denigrate Kazakhstan, or indeed their artistic skills with movies like Borat. I think though Australia should be seeking to be amongst the best in the world and declines like this are unacceptable and that we need to be working hard to turn it around.
“Artistic skills with movies like Borat.” Is Birmo aware that Borat is, shockingly, not actually a Kazakhstani film? Or that Kazakhstan’s education system and national literacy rates are by any measure quite advanced? Or that Borat is… fictional?
