Nay. The Commonwealth should not receive priority over any other country.

Can you define white supremacy and neo-nazism?

Can you name the countries in the commonwealth?

If you look at some of the member states of the commonwealth you will see quite a few caribbean and African counties for example in Zambia there are the bemba people , Tonga, or the Chewa people who are in fact black or let's take Dominica where 86% of the people are black

Stop creating a strawman argument it's ridiculous

Yay, we should maintain our historic ties, and encourage economic growth in poorer countries whom we are in an alliance with.
