British, even before the act of union you would find all the kingdoms were also at it, normaly with the jocks aligning with the french
I wasn’t exactly being serious or wholly accurate.

The influence both good and bad our little island has had will never really be beaten by a country our size, to be serious.

Given that most of this was actually European countries fighting each other in their various colonies, presumably you could make a similar video about France and Spain too.

Unless they get and drop a nuke on something!

The British Empire was, indeed, a marvel of political, economic and military leverage...not to mention subservience to the Crown.

Let’s hope we DON’T ever see the like again, as it would probably be China!

Well not really. The French will have knocked off at11.59 and returned at 14.01 and then thought 'sod it' lets burn some voitures. The Spanish will knock off at 13.00 and possibly return by 17.00 and by that time all of Europe has fucked off for tea anyway and will return to start all over again at 09.00 manana. Half a days fighting lost.....
