Trevor’s strategic genius at work again

After advising our answer to Barack Obama, David “Mumbles” Shearer MBE, that he is to go public as a republican when polls show Kiwis like being a Monarchy, Trevor’s senile brain is back.

This time he is Tweeting about a poll to change the flag to one with a silver fern on it.

Impeccable timing Trev as the centenaries of WW1 and the 75th anniversary of WW2 coincide.

When you are behind in the polls go and create an issue that rubs the noses of veterans right royally up the wrong way and one that most Kiwis don’t care a fig about. 

Even Federated Farmers jumped in on Twitter suggesting our flag should have “a Union Flag (created NZ as a nation), on a blue background (the Pacific) with the Sth Cross (location)!”

This is the book of political common sense that seems to be missing in Labour who seem more interested in side shows than in policy.

Then again when you are relying on Trevor Mallard for strategy you are really is deep trouble.
