UKIP calls for a Commonwealth Free Trade Area to celebrate Commonwealth Day

Published Mar 12, 2018

Gerard Batten MEP, the UKIP leader has taken the opportunity of Commonwealth day to call for a Commonwealth Free Trade Area.

"Leaving the EU is a golden opportunity to take a fresh look at the Commonwealth and its purpose", he said.
"We have an opportunity to transform it into a Commonwealth Free Trade Area.
"This would mean cheaper food and goods for the people of the UK and would benefit people in poorer countries through economic development.
"The Commonwealth is a hangover from Empire of course but Brexit offers a new way forward once we are free of the EU. 
"Within a couple of years, Commonwealth day will mean just that, a day to celebrate the expansion of the wealth of a friendly and historically connected group of countries that the UK let down so badly by joining the European Community".
