Key’s proposal to change the flag is an expensive and unnecessary circus, and this should be the end of it:
Flag change opposed by RSA
The Royal New Zealand RSA says it will fervently oppose changing the New Zealand flag when it appears before a parliamentary committee considering the issue.
The RSA would prefer the centenary of Anzac Day be commemorated this month without the distraction of the flag issue.
“For many who’ve served, our current flag is symbolic of the sacred oath they made to protect the peace and security of New Zealand.
“Our men and women made terrible personal sacrifices and we honour their courage and commitment every time our current flag is flown.”
Let’s spend that $26 Million on something else then shall we. Or is a supposedly conservative government going to oppose the open and “fervent” wishes of the RSA?
