    Instead of complaining about what the flag has on it how about celebrate what the flag means today? A multicultural society which allows all the freedom of being themselves. Black white green yellow or blue, gay, straight, and whatever in between, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, atheist and anything else.....flags don't start fights, narrow minds do.

    Couldn't have said it better myself.

    Our flag is part if our history, lets not forget all the soldiers who have fought and died under that flag. And the soldiers who still do, a good friends partner has just left for Afghanistan for 6 months.

    Well put you bloody yobbo !!!

    My son won a big yobo flag today for dressing up like a yobo. I'll tell him to throw it in the bin because it means he supports violence (unlike a giant fighting kangaroo does).

    Didn't seem to be a problem for Canada. Or the USA. Most countries have changed their flags from time to time.

    The soldiers didn't die for the flag. They died for Australia (though I don't get how being in Afghanistan or Iraq helps - I would not hold this against the soldiers themselves).

    And the flag does not symbolise what is great about Australia today and that's why we should change it.

    What I love about Australia - among other things - that we can discuss the idea of changing the flag without risking jail.

    yes - they're not very good at being diplomatic.

    double whammy on both sides - if Abbott thinks that Aborigies have prgressed enough then perhaps he'd like to share their average life expectancy, job and housing options and health care and education options, ie stuff all compared to the rest of us.

    But if the yobbos at the old parliment house think that method is going to get what they need let alone what they want - they've got another think coming.

    There were yobbos at my local beach last night. Debris everywhere. It's a dry beach but there were empty alcohol bottles and food debris including chop bones everywhere. Evil hound had to stay on lead for the entire walk. Several people got arrested at the northern beach - semaphore.

    Why was it disgusting behaviour? On the footage i saw on the news all i saw was banging on some windows, the only violence i saw was the police officer punching that guy in the head, probably well within his rights as the guy was holding a spear, however the guy didn't look violent. I certainly don't condone what happened, and your right they weren't diplomatic but i didn't see any violence?? maybe i got the R rated version on TV, so i could be wrong...
