Flying the flag, err literally

It will be a condition of the new school funding package that all schools fly an Australian flag. An excellent, though minor, idea. The article of course doesn't headline the PE requirement ('fighting obesity' anybody?) but does quote the usual suspects who are opposed to such an innocuous idea:

Andrew Blair of the Victorian Association of State School Principals said he hoped the flag plan would not mean "a return to colonial Australia days" and that it was accompanied by programs recognising "the multicultural nature of our community".

Yes moron, it means a return to colonial Australia days. The parts of the plan which placed the House of Lords above the High Court, banned non-white students attending, and legislated the use of chalk and slate were luckily defeated at cabinet level.
