Monday March 14th was Commonwealth Day when, in 54 nations around the globe, people came together to celebrate being part of the biggest, most influential group on the planet.
Not that you would have known that from the way it was covered by the British media. The Royal Commonwealth Society did remember and carried out a survey to see how the rest of the Commonwealth felt about our leaving the EU and returning to our true home, with our true friends and partners which have stood the three vital tests of time, war and peace.
There is not room to mention all the responses but the most significant were 82 per cent of New Zealanders, 75 per cent of Canadians and 70 per cent of Australians are ready to ‘welcome us back’ with open arms.
A similar poll inside the EU show significant numbers, led by the French, want us to go.
The ‘in side’ are saying we would be ‘isolated and friendless’ outside the EU; the truth is very different.
These two polls show that would be more likely ‘isolated and friendless’ if we remain in the EU.
