  4. The Premier League
  5. Winston Churchill
  6. The WorldWideWeb
  7. James Bond

Britain is full of opportunities, gayest nation in Europe, highest wages in European powers, richest island in the world, one of the most powerful nations, caring, heart of democracy thats why I'm proud to be British.
