During the campaign to leave the European Union a lot was said about strengthening ties with our Anglosphere cousins across the globe. Autonomously, we can now press ahead with those sought after free trade agreements with the rest of the world including the emerging countries like India with their 2.1billion customers and also positively take advantage of an Anglophile US president with their 350million would be customers.
Setting aside trade and foreign relations for now, look into our own affairs with our overseas territories. Other countries have territory off their mainland such as the United States with Hawaii and Alaska. Both Hawaii and Alaska are far away from mainland USA but both like the 48 states on the mainland have two senators representing the two states in Washington DC, and both have respective number of members of the house of representatives.
