The first hearing was held today on NZ’s flag change and as expected, the sentiment was firmly against with only one submission for and seven firmly against.
The one pro speaker advanced the odious proposition that children should be permitted to vote in the referendum, so desperate are these oily bastards to get their way.
One anti-change submitter made the clear and sensible point that “The first question should have been ‘do we want to change?’ Because then we could have just said ‘yes’ or ‘no’.
The Govt’s reaction was “how can the public decide if it wants change, when it doesn’t know what the change will look like.”
Because we don’t give a damn what any proposed new flag may look like you slimy prog arseholes, we don’t want it changed period.
