Republic good for NZ - Goff - Politics - NZ Herald News

Becoming a republic would be the "making of New Zealand as a country" and we need to start talking about it now, according to Labour leader Phil Goff.

In the most direct call for change from any senior politician yet, Goff said the end of Queen Elizabeth's reign was the logical transition point.

John Key to meet the Queen and UK PM | Stuff.co.nz

Queen may visit if Labour agrees | Stuff.co.nz

I really hope all the parties are able to come to an agreement and invite HM to the World Cup, it will probably be her last chance and trip down under!

New Zealand has let slip details of plans to change the Royal line of succession, ending centuries of discrimination against women and Catholics. But one thing remains unchanged: No New Zealander can ever aspire to be head of state.

The rules taking place beginning with William and Harry, that is so unfair...

Actually, if they were to make it retroactive, how would they determine at what point it starts? To be honest, I don't think there is one person in the BRF that would complain that it didn't affect them.

Starting with William's first child is the logical way to go IMO.

The Queen has not been to New Zealand since 2002, will she make a visit later this year?

There has been no official announcement. Prince William and Catherine are supposedly going next year but that hasn't been confirmed.

There is an election in early September in Australia. They would have to wait until that is settled then wait for formal invites from the 2 countries. You probably get a announcement later on says that they are going to Aus, & NZ early next year and then closer to the visit they will release the trip itinerary. I imagine that Miguel and maybe even Rebecca would go and scope out places for them to visit. Jamie used to do that for the previous tours.

Actually I think this is a good idea. It doesn't really lessen the ties to the Commonwealth and the silver fern flag would be unique and denote New Zealand as its own national identity.

As an outsider, the current NZ flag is one of my favorites - strong, yet to my eye, elegant.
But that silver leaf fern on black would be a stunner. Glad I don't have to make the choice.
