Why all the fuss about adopting a ‘new’ flag for New Zealand when there’s already a perfectly acceptable existing flag that serves as a good alternative to the present Union Flag/Southern Cross mash-up?
The Maori flag is there NZ, use it. Don’t fix what ain’t broken with Key’s referendum , just add the S’ Cross and bob’s your uncle.
Or is the Maori culture and heritage of New Zealand something that is trotted out just for World Cup rugby fixtures…
and State visits, and then conveniently forgotten about when the world isn’t looking?
Time for some real commitment, NZ…Silver Fern <cough>. Really? Don’t you think that’s just a tad ‘white’?
