But you seem to hold me to a higher standard of accuracy than them. Its okay for them to "cobble" the questions together but I must get all my facts right. Since they are using the QI brains to write the article it seems fair to assume that the same 'facts' would have been used on the programme.
Yes Indonesia is a member of both G-20 and G20. I am wrong about the former.
Their errors are rather more egregious.
It is NOT a member of NATO.
(NATO dialogue with ASEAN does not meant Indonesia is a member. Does NATO dialogue with Russia make it a 'member'?)
OPEC - Suspension of membership means one can not longer exercise the rights and privilges of membership. OPEC's website does not include Indonesia in the list of members. In any case this point is moot since the QI writers never mentioned OPEC
$2 a day is their figure, not mine. You have found another of their mistakes if it is actually $11 which I do not dispute.
So the error score is
(or have I got my facts rong again?)
