The Commonwealth is of no importance, the British would like to trick us into joining because they know it would be getting one over on us if they did.There is no such thing as empire these days, Things have moved on ??// It's now called the commonwealth that includes 52 independent nations and more applying to join.
You seem to be lost in the past with your Empire delusions. There is room for Ireland within this group. Could help with reunification. the great majority of Irish living within this commonwealth would really appreciate such a move.
Joining would be yet another concession to the Brits and the Unionists with nothing given in exchange.
Our leaders would love to do it, needless to say.
