From Mr Jim Mangles

Sir: So, David Howell wonders why Britain's foreign policy is so occupied with the European Union while the Commonwealth is neglected ("Where Britain gets it wrong", 4 September)?

I would have thought the reason is obvious: the Commonwealth is our past. Europe matters; the Commonwealth does not. Europe is the real world; the Commonwealth is historical fantasy.

Yours sincerely,

Jim Mangles
