Teribus BS: Post Brexit life in the UK (1972* d) RE: BS: Post Brexit life in the UK 01 Oct 17


"Better a star on the EU flag than an unloved stain on the floor of the community of nations." - David Carter (UK)

Talking of the community of nations Mr. Carter, the largest international organisation in the world is the UN - a meaningless and ineffective "talking shop". Could you tell us what the second largest international organisation in the world is?

I think that you will find that it is "The Commonwealth of Nations" - an organisation established in 1931 by Great Britain and made up of former British Dominions, colonies, dependencies, protectorates and overseas territories IIRC 52 countries in all (Population in 2013 estimate
ed at 2,328,000,000
) - so almost double the size of the EU in terms of member states with three times the population of the EU - that's some stain, and in terms of trading potential certainly not one that can be easily ignored.
