    Our shared culture, language and values would make the UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand prime partners in a freedom of movement agreement, and our similar socio-economic conditions would mean there was no major imbalance.

    This would be an equivalent of taking a 3rd world country into the EU. I doubt they would want an inflow of uneducated Brits chasing for good salaries and at the same time deflating wages. Australia, Canada and NZ have enough problems already.

    Nah. They don't want 'useless immigrants'. They're only interested in doctors, engineers etc ec. And those types of people don't have any problems moving there now. So keep dreaming.

    What? I don't understand you at all. Loads of them would love this system, what's not to like for any of those countries?

    I'm pretty sure Australia, NZ and Canada are faring better than the UK. The movement of people would out of the UK and into those countries, rather than vice-versa. Hence, they're unlikely to be interested in such a proposal.

    Well good luck because those three nations only really want skilled labour. If you're studying an degree in an in demand field or you have a career outside of a degree that is in demand, you'll have a good chance. If you're uneducated and work in a bar, they won't have you. I'd wager those countries will happily suck up the brainy bunch from the UK, leaving the UK full of a majority of dumb brexiters.

    2 of the 3 countries are more interested in trading with China and rest of Asia. These countries are in no hurry for chavs to compete with their bogans for jobs.

    Not at all. I'm for Brexit, I favour these links, and would go and live there.

    But why would they do it. Their current arrangement is good for them. If you are not skilled labour(e.g you have no degree, no professional certification), they don't want you. If you have skills, you'll have a chance of being allowed in.
