Reader’s Comment of the Day: A union with the old Commonwealth would be a great idea


In response to Andrew Cadman: Creating an alternative to the EU would galvanise Tory Euroscepticism, Otto Von Bismarck wrote:

Here’s a great alternative to EU membership, especially if Britain wants to remain a key player in a world that is going to be dominated by three or four superpowers, rather than just the one:

A federal union between New Zealand, Canada, UK and Australia. Such a state would have a population of almost 130 million people, a GDP of almost $6.3 trillion and one of the world’s greatest supply of key natural resources. The advantages to each state would be huge.

We already have a shared history and culture, language, common law and monarch, among other things. There is a demos there, it would work far better than the current EU structures.
