Our 2.4billion forgotten friends


IN all I have read recently about how important our deal with the EU is, we are forgetting the Commonwealth.

The EU’s 27 countries have a total population of 445million and GDP of about $18billion.

The 54 Commonwealth countries are home to 2.4billion, almost a third of the global population, and cover about a fifth of the land surface of the earth.

The EU economy is predicted to slow down, while the 2025 forecast GDP for India alone is around $6trillion.

The Commonwealth is made up of a wide range of different cultures with shared goals: peace, free trade, help for the smaller countries, free elections, respect and more. No one government in the Commonwealth exercises power over the others. 

Why are we forgetting our friends?
