CANZUK: Enter talks with Australia to join the Trans-Tasman Travel Agreement
Enter talks with Australia and New Zealand to join the Closer Economic Relations and Trans-Tasman Travel area. These countries share a common language, similar culture, comparable standards of living, healthcare systems, food standards, common law political systems and even the same head of state.
Canada, Australia and New Zealand are the United Kingdom’s closest allies. Now that we have left the EU, a CANZUK treaty should be top priority for the UK government. This is also the flagship foreign policy of the Canadian Conservative Party. It is supported by the New Zealand ACT party and has been polled to have 2/3 support in all four countries. There is more British emigration to these three countries than the EU and USA combined. This should be formalised in our immigration policy.
I read some of your articles and you seem to be very keen on the CANZUK project. You said you don’t know if it’s going to work, but if it does, what would be the positive outcomes?

One of the strongest advocates for CANZUK stands up for Leadership of the Canadian Conservative Party.
With the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union and with Prime Minister Johnson eager to negotiate new free trade deals, it is time to be bold. I will propose a Canada-Australia-New Zealand-United Kingdom Deal.Erin O’Toole

A number of articles are coming from Norway and Iceland suggesting that Britain joins a non-EU Nordic Alliance. BTmenginer have released and article stating that Norway should not just consider its Alliance with Britain but with the wider CANZUK framework. A Google Translated excerpt is available below however the full article is below.
Cohesion in the West is under threat. Norway must choose who we will partner with in the future.
The balance in the world is shifted both in terms of economic strength, the level of knowledge and research, cultural and ideological appeal, and not least technological and industrial power and military power.
But now we are in a period of dramatic change that reflects both the weakening of the West in relation to other states, and in how the Western countries relate to each other.
Following Brexit , a strong extension of cooperation between Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, the so-called CANZUK, has been launched as a kind of alternative to the EU. At the same time, these countries have a certain shared history, culture and identity. They are all part of the British Commonwealth, under Queen Elizabeth. This may not mean that the British Empire is on its way back, but it is an indication that something is going on.
Norway should do a very thorough analysis of which states we wish to cooperate with.
PM Boris Johnson outlines new review to define Britain’s place in the world. The Integrated Review of foreign policy, defence, security and international development will re-examine the UK’s priorities and objectives.
Note that the wording of intent of this review is very similar to the document:
Written by Bob Seely MP and James Rogers. This very same document was also endorsed by the then foreign secretary Boris Johnson.
This document highlighted the CANZUK alliance as being pivotal to Britain’s future and advocated for Free Movement, Free Trade, Integrated Diplomacy, Military Cooperation and Procurement, the formation of a joint Indo-Pacific CANZUK Naval Fleet, Space Collaboration and a Defence Pact between the CANZUK countries. It is likely that this document will resurface as the backbone to a UK Government White Paper.
