I told you he was different

Christopeher Montgomery's latest offering "Crown Commonwealth" is, well, rather different from the stuff that I used to say. I must admit I don't really agree with him on the idea that Britain's foreign policy should be at all based on standing up for the commonwealth minus India. Like the related concept of the Anglosphere (or should it be Wasposphere?), it puts sentiment above geographical imperitive. Geography is all.

After all, Australians may speak English and have the queen on their stamps - but they are the other side of the world.

Still, Christopher writes his stuff very, very well. Even worth a visit. Unlike Australia.
