    Why do we need a new flag?..

    Here comes another activist time waster...

    .I don't see anything wrong with the old one unless of course it is the stigma of Union Jack stuck in the corner which the lefties don't like particularly if they push again to become a republic to break from the ties from the West Minster system.....What and who will benefit from the removal of the Union Jack...That is our heritage and should be kept.


    I say NO to a new flag.

    It seems that "activist" has replaced "Fabian" in someone's hate list.

    :D

    Typical of some who don't like people who propose something different, just call them names and that'll sort em out.

    Moi???? :D:D

    The concept is not new for Oz, but the design is nice. I've emailed Paul Keating for his endorsement.... For when the minerals supercycle is well and truly in the trough.

    A precedent has been set.
    Canada has a maple leaf.
    NZ will most likely have a silver fern.

    Our leaf should be iceberg lettuce, we put it on everything else!

    Err...How does a republic do that? There is nothing Westminster about the Australian senate, did we "break ties" with the Westminster system in 1901? There is a long list of Westminster styled republics.

    From what I understand, if the Australian public voted for a Republic then the constitution would have to rewritten and most likely would be totally different to the Westminster system.

    A new constitution would have to be put before the people in a referendum outlining the details.

    Yeah that could represent both the socialist corporatocracy and our bogun culture. A pie and sauce with the multinational maker's logo.

    Don't know about that. Just remove the Queen as Head of State and replace her with the GG

    Of course we would then have to decide whose head to put on our currency.
