AUSTRALIA Vietnam Veteran told not to fly the flag in front of his house because it would “incite racial tension”
Sadly, he needed the Minister of Housing to grant him permission. Goodna Vietnam Veteran Neville Irwin will be able to fly the Australian flag in his front yard after Minister for Housing Tim Mander called him yesterday to give him a personal guarantee.
NewsMail (h/t Marina) The QT reported yesterday that Mr Irwin had been told by a senior officer of the Department of Housing and Public Works in Ipswich that the government would not let him fly the flag in the yard of his housing commission home because it would “incite racial tension.” (What ‘race’ is Islam?)
