CANZUK: Cooperation is the Key Force Multiplier
Updated: Jun 16, 2022
What could a CANZUK club look like?
Firstly, I would call it "The CANZUK Alliance". The four nations could and should form a club working together in areas such as Foreign Policy, Defence and Trade.
How would that work?
Create a Diplomatic and Foreign Policy Council.
Share Embassies world wide.
Create a collaborative Foreign Policy based on unanimity.
Create a Joint CANZUK High Command.
Explore enhanced joint procurement.
Exchange programmes, joint training and host bases.
Work and deploy as a single entity.
Create a Trade Council.
Removal of all trade barriers over time.
Relaxed movement of people.
Coordinated supply chains to reduce third party dependence.
COUNCIL OF PRIME MINISTERS
Create a Council of Prime Ministers
Chaired by a member of the Royal Family to act as spokesperson for the alliance.
The Council of Prime Ministers would be the main function of the alliance.
Essentially, CANZUK could be a military and foreign policy alliance with free trade. Each nation maintains it's statehood. However, each nation would now be a superpower due to the alliance.
"The CANZUK Alliance" could also assume the UK seat at the United Nations Security Council. It would be a member of NATO and a Global Power in it's own right. A loose but firm alliance, that would not interfere in daily domestic life as did the EU.
This vision, is the reason I campaigned for BREXIT.
