What British colonies are there today are comparable? The Caribbean islands BOST are so small and would have difficulty with self sufficiency so would not have the same dynamic as a Land polity, like Namibia, etc.
What I meant they’re virtually independent. Some German colonies, regardless the size, could follow this path as well. Keep ties with the metropole for whatever the reason while having full internal autonomy.
I could see Namibia following the French way, becoming integral part of Germany.
