They Are Voting With Their Feet

An alarming report in the Dominion Post on the number of New Zealanders who left for Australia in the last 12 months. "Almost 41,000 people left for Australia in the past 12 months, up an "alarming" 20 per cent on the previous year, according to opposition politicians.
The figures show a continuing flood of mainly working-age professionals, sales people and trades workers, adding to shortages here."

These are exactly the people we don't want to lose.
