I heard on the radio this morning that during the 1950’s the French made a proposal to our PM, at the time, to first join with the UK or second to join the Commonwealth. What a bizarre idea. It would have been a strange union as I can’t see either country would have wanted to give up any of our/their language or culture. Some cultural combinations might have worked… a Pint of Wine might have gone down OK, but I’m not so sure about Roast Frogs and Yorkshires with Snail flavour Bisto.
