Rangitikei District Council - you disgust me.

Post by Admin (Paddy) on Mon Feb 28, 2011 11:00 pm

I noticed today that none of the RDC owned and occupied buildings in Marton are flying the NZ Ensign at Half Mast which is what should happen given today is a National Day of Remembrance for last weeks earthquake in Christchurch.

I live just down from an Memorial Hall, where I fully expected to see the Ensign and I'd planned to be there at the time of the Remembrance Silence today.

Curious, I emailed the RDC in Marton and asked why no Ensign, on today of all days on any of our public Council buildings - our Police have flown it half mast since Tuesday last week.

Here is the RDC answer to my question. I'm staggered by it.

"Morning Paddy

We donít have a flag to fly in Marton. However in Taihape the flag on the Town Hall is at half mast.

Regards ..."


Un fucking Believable.

I am so disgusted by such ignorance and arrogance. Ministry of Internal Affairs devotes a large chunk of its website to the Ensign and how it should be flown, when, and where to get them from.

For me the ensign is of upmost importance, be it the Air Force Ensign or the National flag.

Yes I do notice our flag up there and take great pride in it.

The Govenor General has gifted a giant New Zealand flag to Christchurch. Today rescuers have rigged it up on tallest building in Christchurch as a symbol of hope. The flag was first raised to the head of the mast to symbolise the strength of Cantabs and then lowered to half mast.
