This is Labour’s attempt to show they are a serious party. They included this in an actual bill to go before Parliament. Just two problems.
The minor one is they have used an incorrect description for the fourth flag. It is black, white and blue – not red, white and blue.
The major one is the referendum is meant to be preferential – you ranks the flags in order of preference. This is far fairer than First Past the Post. But in their haste they overlooked this and drew up a first pas the post ballot.
So two fails for them on this. How no one in Labour checks even bills for accuracy I don’t know.
And you know if they stopped playing politics and attacking National for implementing what was basically an identical policy to Labour’s, then the Red peak design could be included. All they have to do is back a bill which simply adds it on.
But they’d rather play politics.
