    After Brexit the UK will be free to make it's own trade deals and establish it's own new relationships. One new union which has been discussed is the CANZUK model, bringing together the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. We discuss why these countries, if it will happen, if it would work and what it means for Brexit going forward.

    Im not from UK, so i dont know anything about the comonwealth.. can you do a video about that ? What are the other commonwealth nations except the above mentioned ones ? What is their relationship, is this something like queen, a relic from the past just for traditions sake ( speaking about that, is the role of the queen of any substance now ? another video ? ) or does it have some political power ?

    I would support closer economic and free movement of labour but I wouldn't a political or economic union. Closer cooperation and possibly the UK becoming re-engaged with the Commonwealth realms and the commonwealth Republics would also be good. Also it would allow in the future for the UK to feature more prominently in Asian economic talks.

    I don't want my country to be in a trade deal with the UK, or have an open border with it.
    There's enough whingeing poms who think they're a big fish in a small pond.
    Also, what do we want from the UK; my experience is that british products I have purchased are at best poorly made and second rate with little or no customer service or back up provided.
    Maybe if the UK became more democratic; abolition of the house of lords, proportional representation, abolition of the civil list &c.
    We have nearly five times more trade with China and growing at a steep rate. The Chinese are also, in my limited experience, more dependable.
    I don't want my country to be tied to such a villain of a nation that jumps in to illegal wars and invasions. To tie ourselves to a country that has made itself a (somewhat deserved) target because of its contemptible foreign policy and international misconduct could also make us a target.
    Screw Britannia.

    There is nothing quite like the wishful thinking of the British concerning rubbish like this to make themselves feel better after the disaster that is Brexit. A political union or even something such as freedom of movement and a shared economy would NEVER be accepted in Australia. Such a deal would be bad for Australian workers as the work force would be flooded by overseas nationals. In terms of trade, why would Australia look to the UK over Asia? Regarding national security, the sharing of intelligence makes sense however Australia's foreign policy is one concerned with the Asia and Pacific region, not Europe. We should also mention the fact that since the end of the Second World War, Australia has created its own strong national identity, one that is very much seperate from the British and English identity Australia once had.. Why would Australia regress back to that British identity it has long left behind? There are many negatives for Australia to enter such a deal and very little to gain. But of course the British like to look back at the 'grand old age of Empire' rather than face the fact that they have caused the political and economic mess they now find themselves in..

    The American government of 1933 went bankrupt and dissolved is sovereign authority, it only exists in name and ran thru constitutional common law and corporate law and british and maritime law, yeah you heard right Americas federal courts respect british law, as it the only federal law we can practice since the colonies. Maybe the uk can reinstate the American government with a trade treaty, so we can have a legal functioning government system that finally works. --------------------- --------------------------- ------------------------------ ------------------------------ --------------------------- "It is an established fact that the United States Federal Government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, 48 Stat. 1, Public Law 89-719; declared by President Roosevelt, being bankrupt and insolvent.

    As a Canadian I support CANZUK to the extent of I want free movement and more trade. I do not want a political alliance that would have us create a governing body on top of our respective Federal governments.

    While I'm not against EU style political alliances, and I would like to see the UN become a stronger power in the world who could potentially level the playing fields between countries which would smooth out a lot of globalization's issues that's pretty different then chaining CANZUK nations' laws to each others when we're so geographically distant and all of us are facing unity crisis' of our own. Canada for example after Quebec finally settled down their separatist tone (thank God, I love the French!) Alberta is now raising the separatist flag and every Province, City, and branch of the Federal government seem to be sueing each other. To add to that chaos would be devastatingly difficult here, and with the whole Brexit thing I don't see the UK supporting that either.

    Well lets see, we are already in a trade agreement with Australia and New Zealand (Trans Pacific Partnership.) We are in an agreement with the UK (via the EU.) Considering our recent experience with our big free trade partner threatening to rip up deals and imposing tariffs, and the UK's actions in Brexit, not sure why the CANZ shoud trust the UK part of CANZUK not to just change its mind a leave in a huff after few years. And of course finally, though we can see why the UK would want such an arrangement... What's in it for us?

    I don't see why Canada would tie itself to a failed economic and politically disaster of the UK. the last time Canada was in closer political and economic union with the UK our solders were led by incompetents, our First Nations Peoples were decimated by disease and bigotry, (which we are still paying for to this day. IE The Indian Act), our resources were exploited and plundered. I don't know about New Zealand or Australia, however I'm certain few if any in Canada are interested in a return to THAT situation. Besides, you people can't even figure out what you want to do with Brexit, why would any country enter into an arrangement with the UK, just so you can change your mind and want to leave. You Brits are too high maintenance.

    Movement Of People...
    Would be less problematic, as standards of living, and therefore wage requirements, are similar.
    ... and so too the general 'moral way of life'.
    The main complaints of the people of the more developed European nations are:-
    Workers accepting ridiculously low salaries, and dramatic shifts in their way of life - as different cultures tend to regroup together in specific areas, effectively swamping those areas almost overnight.
    These complaints aren't mindless racism - it's based upon the fact that the character of their lives has changed in a way that they don't like.
    ... it's often portrayed as racism, and the flame of racism is fanned ... but it comes from purposeful mismanagement of immigration.
    Would grow, but the primary beneficiaries would be Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
    Ie. It would be PRO for them, but not for the UK, as they couldn't replace the EU.
    However, it might turn out fine, when the dust has settled, as the EU and the UK gradually rehabilitate their trading agreements.
    ... as the main need for the EU was to show that you can't leave the bloc and be okay.
    Presumably, trading requirements will force a gradual return to general normality (?)
    UK - EU Trade...
    European trade must anyway continue, as the UK and the EU are fully integrated - businesses depend upon each other, particularly small to medium sized enterprises.
    Brexit will create totally unnecessary chaos, and impact the lives of vast numbers of people - people who don't even know that their salary is dependent upon trade within the EU.
    Goods that might now take just 4 days to deliver will likely take much longer (due to the forced punitive measures).
    Even then, this time scale can never be achieved with the CANZUK nations - everything will be a 6 week delivery time at minimum.
    ... and because this trade wont be enough, companies will need to become embroiled in customs formalities.
    Suddenly small companies will find that they need a shipping department, when previously they just put stuff on a lorry and off it went.
    This will raise costs for UK businesses, as compared to their EU competitors who will continue without the customs issues.
    A percentage of UK businesses will simply close ... creating a downturn in the economy, while at the same time, prices must rise, to account for the additional costs and tariffs - a double whammy.
    The wealthiest people will be fine (they are always fine).
    It's the general population that will suffer - all those people saying "we can make this work" without a single thought in their heads of the trading integration that will be dismantled and the ensuing chaos.
    Strangely enough; internal EU dissatisfaction is growing.
    Now would be a great time to stay in the EU and use that dissatisfaction to force a new EU direction.
    However, that would be the sensible approach that would reduce chaos.
    Therefore, I can't help but think that 'having the masses in a general state of constant chaos' is a suitable method of administration.
    ... it certainly keeps the populace busy, while the top few remain totally unaffected.
    We might even back out of brexit, which in itself would create ongoing chaos, with the plebiscite divided down the middle.
    It would certainly be a beautiful move, from a 'divide and rule' perspective, but I guess that this is anyway now inbuilt, whether the UK stays or leaves.
    Therefore, I would say that (overall) this move by Cameron has been a total success.

    First of all rename it because CANZUK sounds rubbish and secondly you can resolve all the race-relations problem by bringing in the Caribbean nations, uniting them under one flag & currency and using them as the central hub for trade will bring the investment in infrastructure that they need.

      +Phil Flintknapper57 you obviously haven't seen the polls yes is well ahead and to win said referendum the NO side on the eve of the vote promised near federalism, guaranteed EU citizenship, tax jobs safe in Scotland, 13 type 26 frigates built on the clyde, pensions triple locked wanted Scotland to lead the UK not leave ...

      The NO side broke every promise instead of leading the UK we we have been ignored and instead of near federalism we have EVEL ... without the vow Scotland would have been a Independent country and the unionists are bricking it because a 2nd vow won't work next time round ...

      The UK is finished it had it's chance on september 19th 2014 and blew it .... you only have yourselves to blame Scotland is not Catalonia and England cannot force Scotland to remain in the UK .... the UK. is finished

      Scotland HAD a referendum on the issue, which was soundly defeated, in 2014. If they had another, that would likely be defeated too, according to the polls.

    Canadian here, this sounds like it would be extremely beneficial to a post brexit UK, less so to Canada, Australia and New Zealand. I think that such an arrangement would have to be very carefully worded. None of us are at all interested in being ruled by London if that is what you are dreaming about.

    Ahh yes the 5 eyes agreement. Suppose to stop torrorism but cant stop a white guy from gathering weapons online and killing 50 muslims. So i really wonder what the 5 eyes are doing with their power

    What a brilliant idea! Resurrecting the British Empire and uniting the English-speaking countries. After all, combining the GDP of Canada, Australia and New Zealand is smaller than Germany's alone, so that should easily make up for the lost trade with the entire EU. And of course, as Canada, Australia, the UK and NZ are all so near, and with similar trade needs, I see no problem there, either. Plus, I can easily see Canadians and Australians looking to swap their huge houses, sunny weather/great skiing and unspoilt nature to live in the wonderful UK, with all its perks (too numerous to list here, also too hard to think of any). Looks like within a few weeks, things will be back to normal for UK prosperity. I guess what I find so amusing about this video is that the makers surely know this entire idea is simply a farce, yet they carry on valiantly, trying to present it as seriously as possible, as if it is not some utterly unrealistic, naive pipe dream. I wonder how many takes they had to edit out when due to the narrator bursting into laughter.
