There is a huge billboard in the Kew area of Melbourne advertising a new model of Mercedes-Benz. The wording beside the picture of the car is “The day Italians start dreaming in German”.
Has Mercedes-Benz already forgotten that this is not the first time that Italians have started dreaming in German? What about World War II and Mussolini’s alliance with Hitler?
Are the fellows in charge of advertising so immature that they haven’t a clue about history?
If we can be subjected to nonsense such as this one, no wonder the government is promoting a broader History curriculum. There is no time to waste or some ignoramus will create a commercial associating Kokoda and Changi with our Aussie passion for sushi.
