Daily Reminder that the UK is the nation equivilent of We Wuz Kings. You are a low-tier middle power who isn't even as relevant in the world today as France or Germany.

Also the UK is a fucking shithole and the only notable thing about your country is that the City of London is jewish banking circlejerk.

In what way has Australia surpassed the UK? The only former colony that has surpassed this country is the USA, even Canada is more relevant than your country.

Any country that wants to become successful becomes capitalist. This was true before the USA was even a country.

HDI means nothing.

How about GDP, trade relevance, military strength. UK is head of the commonwealth, largest soft power, prestigious unis, NATO member, financial capital of the world, booming import and export trade. We are obligated to have a large military and trident subs, if we allow ourselves to be weak, it also weakens Europe, NATO, even the USA and irrelevant ex colonies like Australia.

I sort of wish we were irrelevant 2bh, then maybe gobshite Aussies and other envious nothings wouldn't constantly shit talk us

I like the UK but you know I sort of have to agree, reading peoples opinions and thoughts about the current state of the UK it feels very "we used to be great, the best days are behind us". Which is sad because the UK is still very relevant. Its just that when you were the most relevant thing in the entire planet you can only go down from there.
>>
>>54047132

Literally every country was this at some point. Even cucktugal used to be strong.

>>54047240
But that would be true for most major places right?

>>54047218
And they are run like private corporations, not cooperative enterprises. It's still capitalism.

I don't mean in terms of quality of life, I mean for stuff relevant to "relevance" and power. You can see that relative to our Western competitors, our GDP starting improving from 79 onwards. That general trend has continued to this day.

It's also true for British military power, and cultural influence, and so on.

In the military sphere the improvements are more obvious. There are two developments in particular:

Firstly, the first new British military base East of Suez since the end of the British Empire is being established right now (HMS Juffair)

Secondly, the regeneration of a carrier strike capability which was lost in the 1970s when HMS Ark Royal was retired. In fact it was the 1960s when the UK last had something equivalent to what it will have when both new carriers are in service
>>
>>54047714
Oh, and also, the first commitment to increase the Royal Navy's frigate/destroyer fleet since WW2. The navy is already expanding in tonnage, but it also start expanding in numbers. That's fairly significant.

The RAF is also growing larger instead of shrinking
