Apparently the writers of ‘Kath & Kim” have denied it is politcal satire, but I think it is the most trenchant critique of Howard’s Australia on TV. Here is a bunch of self-satisfied, brain-dead cretins whose lives revolve around domestic trivia in the hyper-materialistic suburbs. They think they are the last word in worldly sophistication, with a final opinion on everything. Even when they go on holiday, they wind up staying at the airport to consume all the special goodies there.
This is Howard’s Australia exactly. A country obsessed with its own trivial concerns, and too busy to worry about the rest of the world. Just keep the borders up and the easy life on tap.
