The time has come to re-establish the British Empire. This is quite simply an obvious fact.
When James Skinner moved from the United Kingdom to Australia, he fell in love with Melbourne, landed a great job, met a great group of friends, settled down in his new home — only to leave because permanent residency was much harder to obtain than he anticipated.
Skinner, who now lives in Vancouver, says he fears the same experience could happen again.
“We are virtually the same people,” he told The Early Edition’s Rick Cluff, referring to countries within the Commonwealth.
“The only thing that divides us is the cover of our passports.”
Skinner, who is the founder and executive director of the Commonwealth Freedom of Movement Organization, is calling on politicians in Canada, the U.K., Australia and New Zealand to loosen restrictions on visas and work permits between the four countries.
He says citizens within the European Union can work and reside indefinitely in each of the 28 member states, and a similar policy occurs between Australia and New Zealand.
There’s no reason why something similar can’t happen between Canada, the U.K., Australia and New Zealand, he argued.
“We’ve had that Commonwealth tie for generations and decades in the past, we’ve stuck together through thick and thin, [we] share the same head of state, the same native language, the same respect for the common law,” he said.
“It’s not something completely out there that we’re proposing.”
The Commonwealth Freedom of Movement Organization’s petition has already gathered nearly 25,000 online signatures.
Here is the petition.
One issue here, Mr. Skinner: USA is a part of the Anglosphere, and we want in on this new empire dealie. In fact, because we beat the British, we deserve not only to be a part of this British Empire 2.0, but to actually be in full command of it. Like, you should all be subjects of our King, King of America, who is yet to assume his throne but who will likely be Sam Hyde of the Million Dollar Extreme comedy group.
But seriously though. A free movement deal between the commonwealth countries – and the US – would, in a perfect world, make a lot more sense than the EU, wherein dozens of completely different cultures are allowed to work in other people’s countries. But meanwhile in reality, we don’t live in a perfect world, and we are all in the process of being invaded by the Hordes of Mordor.
Still, such a free movement pact would benefit everyone except England, as they have agreed to give unlimited free everything to anyone who has brown skin or worships Allah, and all of these various apes in everyone else’s countries would immediately make a beeline for the land of milk and White honeys you can rape without being punished.
It’s a shame. We could be thinking about such grand concepts, but instead we have to think constantly about how to keep getting stabbed by vibrant colorfuls, or how to pay our bills after having been personally looted by hook-nosed Jews.
