New Zealand's two-step flag referendum generates debate

From Nine To Noon, 9:34 am on 23 June 2015

With three weeks to go before flag design submissions close, we ask should the flag change? What story should it tell? Could such a vitally important decision be made by a handful of voters ? Will Gareth Morgan's flag competition add anything to the quality of the debate? As it stands the first part of the referendum in November will ask voters to chose a new flag from a shortlist of four. Then next March the new design, will go up against the current flag.
