I’ll keep this short and simple. There is an independence referendum in Scotland on September the 18th. After that date, there may be a change to the Union Jack of 1801. The reason there may be a change is that the flag is seen by some to represent the political union of Scotland, England and Ireland rather than the union of the crowns. There have been discussions on this in the UK media with prospective new designs drawn up. (Wales is not represented on the current flag)
So listen. Any talk of changing the design of the flag used by New Zealand prior to any possible changes to the Union Jack is utterly pointless.
So, how about you stop wasting our time, and your air time or column inches on all this nonsense and get to reporting on actual news. You think you can do that?
Update: Breaking from Stuff – referendum on the flag will be “after the election”
