Scientist says half the population of Britain and US would prefer a country ‘where intellect might be appreciated’Richard Dawkins wants to move to New Zealand to get away from Brexit 'madness'The British scientist Richard Dawkins has said he would like to move to New Zealand as a refuge from the "madness" of a post-Trump, post-Brexit northern hemisphere. "I thought about half the population of America and half the population of Britain would love to go to a country where intellect might be appreciated. So I thought New Zealand might be an ideal country – low population. I would love to be invited to New Zealand and to live here, and for others to live here too."Richard Dawkins (@RichardDawkins) Seriously, are there really people who think it’s funny (or "ironic" as they call it) that I’m speaking in Christchurch.
