The Tribune (NZ) - - WELCOME - – Richard

Last week, the flag con­sid­er­a­tion pro­ject re­leased a list of places where both flags for the March ref­er­en­dum will be flown.

De­spite a mem­ber of the panel, Mal­colm Mul­hol­land, liv­ing in Palmer­ston North, there are only two points listed where both will be raised so we can com­pare them.

Are they high-pro­file cen­tral sites, such as The Square, The Lido, the hos­pi­tal, UCOL, Massey Univer­sity, Arena Manawatu, the Plaza...Nah, none of the above.

Site one is at Fon­terra’s Fitzher­bert Sci­ence Cen­tre build­ing way out on Dairy Farm Rd – and only at the week­ends, and the other is at a house on Wil­low­stream Gr tucked down the back of Cloverlea.

Th­ese are the city’s only of­fi­cial listed sites so far, and Manawatu’s... and for all of Manawatu-Whanganui. Levin on the other hand has three listed flag sites.

So, not tak­ing our re­gion’s choice too se­ri­ously then.
