I see @jacindaardern has already been asked about babies vs career. Please can every nob who asks that ask the same of Bill English?
Why has the flag debate got so nasty? I don’t know about you but I am really not enjoying the tension. Like plenty of other people, I’ve made my mind up on which box I’ll tick but for the most part I keep that opinion to myself. Why? Because I can’t be bothered with the hate. Even among friends, I find myself avoiding the topic because I’m not quite sure how it’ll go down. So why has it all got so personal? You want to keep the flag? Good on you. But I might want to change it, so why not good on me too? Whatever flag we get, life as we know it will go on. The sun will still rise in the morning, the kids will still hate brussel sprouts, politicians will still make dicks of themselves and we’ll still live in the most beautiful country on earth.
