Lloyd Jones – security from the belief that our world was better
Author Lloyd Jones says New Zealanders are great travellers, but we also tend to have strong homing instincts.
“We’re not like the Africans, Indians or Pakistanis, who come [to the UK] because it’s a better world. For generations we were quite secure that our world was better. We were just inspecting the source before going home.”
However, it is still largely true, except (and it’s a big exception) for Australia.
