Commonwealth of what?

Each time I hear or read about the Commonwealth, I feel angry. Commonwealth of what? Is it a Commonwealth of continued slavery, colonialism, exploitation or that of everlasting imperialism?

I strongly think it is about time that the Commonwealth disbanded as it has proven beyond doubt that it only serves the interest of Britain and its allies.

So much money was wasted hosting the Abuja Commonwealth summit which could have been better used in repairing roads in Nigeria or feed malnourished children.
