From The Daily Telegraph – as forwarded by Anthony J Sargeant from their website
There is a country that fits over two islands lying off a major landmass. Its residents are known for their farming, love of beer and rugby, and their reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.
This nation has struggled with its place in the world. But now, with the chance to decide between greater integration with a larger free trade area, or going its own way, the nation’s economic success has made the option of operating more freely all the more appealing.
These are not the struggles of the United Kingdom, however, but a country more than 11,000 miles away: New Zealand. The Commonwealth nation’s experience may now provide a useful roadmap for the UK, if it does decide to leave the European Union at the referendum on June 23.
