A staggering one in 10 New Zealanders are considering a move to Australia according to a new poll.
There are probably a few people in New Zealand with higher than 2-digit IQs who don’t commit crimes against the tourists, don’t abuse their children and don’t drink and drive, though they all speak with the same repugnant accent. It’s hard to say how many of them are out there, but there are a few.
It has been said that “God” asked the Americans where they wanted to go, and they said to the land of plenty, so he blew their boat the Americas way.
The Australians, wanted the sun, sand and rain dance, so they where sent down under. When the New Zealanders’ turn came up, they said to “almighty”: “When we sober up we want to be like them, pointing towards the Aussies.”
In the year ending November 2007, some 76,000 people, nearly 2 percent of the population left New Zealand, an increase of 7,800 from the year ending November 2006. the numbers for 2008 are expected to be even higher.
