The Tribune (NZ) - - COMMENT -

On re­ceiv­ing my ref­er­en­dum pa­pers I note that the pro­posed new flag is the first choice on the vot­ing pa­per and on the brochure Our Na­tion, Your Choice the pro­posed flag is on the first flag pole.

Stand­ing Or­ders that are writ­ten for the pro­tec­tion of all per­sons in­volved in meet­ing and vot­ing pro­ce­dure nor­mally has the ‘sta­tus quo’ in the prin­ci­pal or lead­ing role with the op­tions then listed.

The flag ref­er­en­dum has been a po­lit­i­cally mo­ti­vated and ma­nip­u­lated process that im­pugns the in­tel­li­gence of NZ cit­i­zens.
