    Default "Tenfold increase in interest from Brits wanting to move to New Zealand since Brexit referendum"

    On the front page of the Herald today: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/n...ectid=11698368

    "More than 10,500 registrations from people considering moving here from Britain have been lodged with Immigration New Zealand since the Brexit vote.
    The agency's deputy chief executive, Nigel Bickle, said interest from UK nationals rose tenfold on the day Britain voted to leave Europe.
    That day Immigration got 998 British registrations, compared with 109 the day before the vote.
    In 49 days after the vote, there were 10,647 registrations from the UK compared with 4599 over the same period last year."

    I don't think the ones that are supposedly wanting to leave because of Brexit are the ones with that reason.
