A New New Commonwealth
With Rwanda about to join the steady flow of new members unconnected to Britain in any colonial way, it is time for a New New Commonwealth, headed by the British monarch with all that that entails, but open to anywhere having no dispute with any of the Queen’s or her successor’s Realms and Territories, and desiring to take a (basically and ultimately Christian) stand against globalisation, the American military-industrial hegemony that Americans themselves have now rejected at the polls, European federalism, Islam, and economic domination by China, all of which are closely connected. An ideal member would be Madagascar, where the next meeting of the Francophonie is to be be held. For that matter, an ideal member would be France. But the really obvious member would be Belgium.
