Not-so-silent Bob

All week the news has been reporting on the meeting of Commonwealth nations in Nigeria, and the fact that they’ve excluded Zimbabwe from the proceedings for some iffy rigged elections last year (among other, far worse things). In a “you can’t fire me, I quit” move, Mugabe responded by quitting the Commonwealth.
It occurred to me to ask myself, in this day and age of “post-colonialism”, if the Commonwealth is even relevant any more? Luckily Andrew Black of Southern Cross has the answer: not really, no.
