    No brainer. Replace the Union Jack in the corner with it.

    No chance.
    He is more likely to go back to just the Union Jack,as it was in the "Glory days"in the 50's.
    Now we have knights again,and we can go back to a bit of friendly racial vilification,who knows what's next?
    Special tax incentives for building drive in movies?

    Let's have a referendum to get rid of the bloody metric system.

    What a load of lefty garbage that is.

    Wondering how many of the Republicans will forego the long weekend?

    Probably similar to the number of Tories who forego the October long weekend or non Christians who decide to work on Christmas day.

    One of your best Runner. Maybe you should go out on Monday and ask random punters whether they want Australia to be a Republic and then hassle them for not going to work.

    Nah I like the Kings birthday public holiday. You strike me as the sort of bloke Runner that would rather see Mayday go.

    Couldn't find anyone of the 36% that support the Republic. Everyone happy to be on hoildays and celebrate the Monarchy.

    As I hope you all did.

    New Zealand beating up to the punch . . . again

    NZ to vote on new flag next year
    NZ PM has confirmed that it would require two referenda, held outside the election period.

    In the first referendum, New Zealanders would vote on the best alternative flag from three or four options, chosen by a committee after a public submission process.

    The PM said this morning that he had been advised that this vote could take place at the end of 2015.
    New Zealanders would vote for an alternative flag regardless of whether they supported a change from the status quo or not.

    In the second referendum, the public would vote whether to change to the winning alternative design or to keep the current flag.


    The second vote could be held in April 2016.

    flag and republican issue are two seperate things which people often fail to realise. Monarchy and political system put us into a historical context flag is a representative one. You can change the flag and keep the monarchy as has been done in canada and about to be done in NZ which creates a clear path for international recognition through our national symbols.

    Good idea.
