Captain of the Team

What do you get when you remove the only part of the Australian Flag that isn’t relevant anymore?

On the 20th of January 2010, Brendan Short created a facebook fan page calling for renewed unity and a further step toward reconciliation. His concept for a new Australian flag would gain thousands of fans. Captain of the Team is the documented story of Brendan’s attempt to bring unity to a divided Australia

How has England had the greatest influence. The Irish provided the labor. The money came from all over the world from theft. The only thing the English provided was a set of laws that was compromised soon as terra nullius (A roman idea) was declared. It is that lie Mysteryman you are continuing to perpetrate. It is that lie that keeps the tent embassy where it is. We, us as a nation and every bit of land we walk on was influenced by Aboriginal peoples for thousands of years and still is.

England might have come here and settled this country, but it’s all the nations of the world that made this country… Not England though. After England settled here, everybody else turned up.

I agree. So why remove the representation of the country that has had the greatest influence in making Australia what it is today, and replace it with the representation of a much smaller influence? That doesn’t seem to make much sense.

I think coming up with an entirely new flag would be a better option.

What a load of garbage.

Who do you think sent the Irish here? Who created the colonies that allowed for further settlement by other nationalities? Where did our laws and legal system come from? What language is our official one? Who sent us into our first international conflict as a nation? Which head of state signed the documents of federation and granted us self determination? Why have we been a part of the Commonwealth all these years?

You’d have to be a total muppet to think that England hasn’t been the largest influence on making Australia what it is today.

Brilliant and not a zombie to be seen. Respect.

The quote at the top of my comment was from the video and said:

“England might have come here and settled this country, but it’s all the nations of the world that made this country… Not England though. After England settled here, everybody else turned up.”

Not sure why it didn’t show up.
