Seems like a good time to note that over 700 American women died and more than 50,000 were seriously injured while giving birth last year. Meanwhile, fewer than 60 police officers were shot to death. Really makes you wonder about our social perceptions of risk and danger.

Honoured to be appointed Shadow Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Affairs. At a time when Britain is recasting itself on the world stage, I look forward to setting out Labour’s vision for a values-led foreign policy based on cooperation & internationalism

Barbados is now a Republic. The Queen is no longer the Head of State. This is a result of China pouring £bns into the Caribbean, including into the Barbadian army. Britain’s timid foreign policy & neglect of the Commonwealth is strengthening China & undermining global stability.

Barbados will become a republic this week, replacing Queen Elizabeth as head of state. British colonizers enslaved over 380,000 people to work on Barbados' sugar plantations. Sandra Mason, set to be the first president, said she wants to "fully leave our colonial past behind."

December 2, 1859: Abolitionist John Brown was hanged for treason by the Commonwealth of Virginia because he fought to free enslaved people. Brown’s last words: “I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land can never be purged away but with blood."

China has taken over the Uganda’s Entebbe International Airport and other assets in the country over the failure of the Ugandan government to repay a $207m loan. China is embarked on a hostile takeover of countries. The UK must stand with Commonwealth members against Beijing.

And of course, these are averages. Accordingly to the Commonwealth Fund, black American women are 2.5x as likely to die as white American women. A black mother with a college education is 60 percent more likely to did than a white woman who didn't complete high school.

Yesterday the @AusHumanRights released the Jenkins Review into the culture inside Commonwealth Parliamentary Workplaces. The report while not overly surprising, was still devastating to read.

Logical step for an independent nation. Best wishes to the people of Barbados. Only 15 of 54 former British colonies in the Commonwealth retain a UK hereditary monarch as head of state. Jamaica the next to break? The USA ditched Brit royalty in 1776.

True sha, Nigerians like to claim Niger-Delta oil as “our commonwealth” but never see oil pollution, gas flaring and the environmental degradation as “our problem”.

Brexiters always proclaimed that the UK should be closer with the Commonwealth; little did it expect the Commonwealth to not want to be closer with the UK.

We need controlled immigration. Short of a huge spike in our birth rate the alternative is a hugely dysfunctional demographic time-bomb. We should prioritise the Commonwealth as the source of that controlled immigration. That’s all folks.

The Morrison Government is so sensitive about corruption they’re now arguing it’s “unparliamentary” to criticise their sham model for a “Commonwealth Integrity Commission”.
