A survey commissioned by the Royal Commonwealth Society in London found that 70 per cent of Australians, 82 per cent of Kiwis, 58 per cent of Brits and 75 per cent of Canadians are in support of reciprocal open borders between the nations when it comes to living and working in them.

If the UK exits the EU, it would no longer be bound by the EU’s free labour movement laws.

Therefore, the Government may be more open and flexible towards migration from non-EU countries to fill any skills gaps.

Commonwealth Society President, Lord Howell said: “This polling is invaluable as it shows the view and wishes of these fellow Commonwealth friends in strong support for closer ties.

The concept has been supported by London mayor, Boris Johnson.

The UK and its tightening immigration rules, which has seen a decrease in the number of working visas issued to non-EU nationals, including Australia, in recent years.

More than one million people in Australia were born in the UK, the leading country of birth for its overseas-born population.

Express

Personally I think it would be a great idea.

Though I'm against mass uncontrolled immigration I do recognize the value of immigration.

The country's have similar standards of living so there wont be a unbalanced drain from poorer country's to rich.
All country involved would share similar values, cultures and a language.

Love the idea. The good old English Speaking Alliance is back
We do have far more in common with these recently related people than Bulgarians (no disrespect just honesty) and there will surely be great economic gains attributed to visa free travel between the Commonwealth states.

If the UK does exit the EU, a return to the Commonwealth would be necessary. Unfortunately, that would mean that Britain would still be at the whims of Canadian immigration policies, which tend to be liberal and would not appease the xenophobic elements.

Can America get in on that deal?

That would be a great move and clear positive to the brexit that could help the remainers get over the political loss.

The USA massive population is a slight concern in that regard.

Could potentially work, especially as a lot of our industry's are tied.

Less pathetic than a "independent" Scotland in the EU..... How do you say Scotland in German? Schottland I think. Get used to it as a EU Scotland with be even more pathetic and insignificant than a Scotland in the UK. Even Greece would be above you.

You have a high living standard in those nations, a broad middle class.. Cant see them running to England for work, and no one wants to even touch the free leprosy nation of the West

Sorry but the only pathetic one in here is you with your English trolling, we get it you hate the English.
You play the bitter Scotsman role very well, but I'm quite sick of it to be honest.

Im not a racist and f@#$ anyone who says i am, im honestly one of the least racist people i know.
That said im also a realist and as a result am unashamedly xenophobic.

I have no issues with immigration to Australia provided you want to assimilate and become a part of aussie culture.
Kiwis, Canucks and Poms are in my opinion basically aussies who speak funny.
Im all for free movement between these countries as there would be virtually no impact to the host country.

If you wanna live in Oz I couldnt care less about your colour but i do care about your cultural expectations

Thats the key.

The laws between commonwealth country's are pretty much the same, so are our values, education and culture. There for assimilation of immigrants would be very smooth with little to no impact.

I see no problem with western civilizations having open immigration policies its when you attempt multi cultural ism and mass migration from third world nations it becomes a problem.

We are aloud to have white majority countries.

Multiculturalism has been a total failure.

There is nothing wrong with white majority countries people will jus have to deal with it.
