While Aussies are normally quick to joke about their Kiwi neighbours, the prospect of three years under conservative Morrison appears to have many contemplating a dash across the sea to New Zealand.

Immigration New Zealand (INZ) said the number of Australians visiting its website for prospective migrants increased 12-fold to 8,522 the day after the election, up from 715 the previous Sunday.
