We looked briefly at the Commonwealth last month (Celebrating the Commonwealth, 15 March 2012).
The current issue of Global magazine features an interview with Lord David Howell, Minister of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, in which he put forward his views on the way forward for the Commonwealth.
Necessarily, the views he expresses are likely to be indicative of the current government`s position.
All I would want to say on that issue is that this blog doesn`t go in for party politics, except in the sense that I tend to prioritise campaigns and other initiatives that have cross-party support.
Other than that, the interview can be found at www.global-briefing.org .
