Lucky #3 is in the lead
Sheldon Cooper Presents: Fun With Flags, episode 233
I like top right, I don't think you want black on a flag unless your CIA pets.
The swirl one is rubbish
It is a distraction, but a quite dangerous one.
If NZ change their flag you can bet your bottom that there will be a big push in AUS for us to do the same. What it means in AUS is that we then have the whole republican push to go with it (with a republican PM in power) and along with it a change to our constitution - just like they tried to pull on us last time.
Anyone who was around last time would remember they tried to set up a system where the head of state (our protector against bad government) would be chosen by 2/3rds of the parliament and NOT by the people. So....crony politicians choosing a crony politician to be president. How good does that sound!!??
I don't have a problem with becoming a republic or changing the flag in principle, but the devil is always in the detail with these things and I don't trust any of todays politicians not to screw up the constitution or the democratic process while implementing it.
I can't help but think of the "love your flag" crowd.
What happens when they change the flag?
The flag will NOT change.
Next year when they have the referendum and the 50% of eligible voters that turn out will say NO CHANGE with a 70% majority.
You read it here first
Would you care to place a small wager on that prediction like a 1oz silver coin ?
how does one love a flag? I never got that.
Referendum ends... No change.
what a waste of money, symbolism gone mad, if you're irrelevant, you're irrelevant.
not far off was he?
The Kiwis don't want change..
They will respond to Renewal..same as most of the English speaking Western world
