Apron strings

Holden republic
is celebrating the cutting of further apron strings with the British.

Personally when I see us use the British to represent us in countries where we have no representation and to rescue our people from places like Lebanon. I think if we cut our apron strings we could go unrepresented in many countries and our citizens could be made less secure overseas. Why on earth would you want to do that sort of thing?

Basically humans are animals with apron strings. There is nothing wrong with having ties with particular nations.

Agreed, you are dead right; "having ties with particular nations" can (and are) be worthwhile.

Genius,

The Brits did so at the request of our government, not because of our constitutional links to the United Kingdom. They also evacuated South Africans for example.

The point is not so much that we could not have asked, lets say, syria or greece for help but more that largely as a result of our "apron strings" we chose britain and that those "apron strings" are hardly hurting us in these cases.

rejecting them jsut because they make us sound dependant is foolish.
