    Politician copies and pastes report straight from Wikipedia. read!

    A politician in Australia went on a trip to France and Turkey with his girlfriend, keep in mind he is married, claiming to be studying the Global Financial Crises, and when coming back to Australia, wrote a 80 page report, two thirds of which was copied and pasted straight from Wikipedia.

    Thoughts anyone?

    Umm... I wonder if this is covered over common license?  On another thought, the author might actually get some recognition for his work! hehehe

    That sounds particularly political to me. It doesn't really matter which side of the fence that they're on, they all play the same game, don't they.

    He was writing a report on countries that he'd only been on a trip too - I guess eighty pages would be a hefty amount for just him. I would accept this piece, I've read Wikipedia articles and they're tip-top shape.
