The poll, conducted by one of the UK’s largest national newspapers The Express, ran from 2:00pm until 9:30pm on Monday August 9th and surveyed 8,712 people.

The question posed to readers was:

“Should the UK form a superpower alliance with Australia, Canada and New Zealand?”

An overwhelming 94% of respondents voted “Yes”, with only 5% saying “No” and a further 1% saying “Don’t know”.

Respondents were also invited to comment on the poll, with a vast majority expressing support and urging the UK government to implement measures for CANZUK as soon as the UK’s transition period with the EU concluded.

One respondent also commented, “We need to realise that the most valuable and precious thing that New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Britain have to offer is not land, its not resources, it’s the people”.

The poll comes after significant diplomatic efforts between the CANZUK countries in recent weeks, including a joint statement issued by each of Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom condemning the anti-democratic actions of the Chinese government in Hong Kong, and post-Brexit talks between the UK and Australia being described as successful and “productive”.

The results also compliment an earlier August poll which indicated that 63-65% of the British public believe Canada, Australia and New Zealand are primary allies for the UK, more than any other countries in the world.

CANZUK International will continue its successful campaigning in each of the four CANZUK countries to ensure that support for our proposals grows and receives positive endorsements from the public and political representatives.
