Migration gathers speed

BBC News: "Almost one in 10 British citizens are living overseas... The number of British citizens who chose to go permanently abroad doubled from 53,000 in 2001 to 107,000 last year - some 2,000 people a day... the number hoping to leave in the near future [has] doubled since 2003."

On a related note, the 2006 census shows that New Zealand's population has grown by nearly 8% in the last five years, and 23% of the population was born overseas.
