Nationals MP exposed live on air for having no idea what happened on January 26th

The fiery debate about whether we should move the date of Australia Day away from the 26th January has come around again.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison proposed that we should have a dedicated Indigenous National Day instead of moving the current Australia Day.

Nationals senator Bridget McKenzie also weighed in on this debate.

McKenzie defended the 26th January as the date “when the course of our nation changed forever” and then proceeded to claim that it was the date that Captain Cook landed.

Of course, it was not.

Australia Day commemorates the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788, not Captain Cook.

Before trying to defend the day, maybe she should read up on its significance first.
