Flagging interest?

It’s  odd, that’s all I’m saying.

You can’t talk about changing the country’s flag every day – there are diminishing returns in the topic to make it useful as a permanent distraction – but as a temporary piece of misdirection, it’s perfect. “Look, over here, let’s talk about removing the Union Jack, and using a silver fern, and a black flag, and, and...”

So the country’s talking, but what is it we are being distracted from?

Is Key that worried about Silent T’s duplicitous“baby bonus” he wants us to talk about something else?

Or is he really that keen to get rid of the old flag that he wants us to be the only sovereign nation in the world to have have a flag that could be confused for the black flag of Al Qaeda.
