Championing Value For Money From Every Tax Dollar

The $26m flag referendum

During the 2014 election, part of National's campaign platform was to hold a referendum on the New Zealand flag.

With the design process now underway, public opinion is divided over whether the $26m cost of the referendum is value for money.

While some of the proposed designs have been taken seriously, with thought and consideration, others are a bit more... "abstract". 


We have launched a poll to see what you think of the referendum process: is the $26m price-tag a waste of money, or the fair price of democracy?
