And - better yet - it's similar to a chapter in out deal with Japan.
Some "arrogance" there then and another example of the deliberate misinformation prevalent from EUrophiles - but that as we know is the EU way.
Yes, both sides. New zealand must think the UK has much to learn from them. Same article says:
New Zealand, one of the few nations to have had three female leaders, has a number of progressive policies on women’s rights and gender equality. In 2018, it became the first country in the world to pass legislation which gives domestic abuse victims 10 days of paid leave from work to flee their partner.
Last month, New Zealand became one of the first countries to give parents who suffer miscarriages or stillbirths paid leave from work, after parliament voted in favour of giving both mothers and their partners three days of bereavement leave.
