    Not much. It's not like it has anything to do with me and we shouldn't be proud of such an oppressive thing.

    How they remained to be the greatest empire ever, CONSIDERING the fact they were an island nation, meaning they could have got attacked easily saw from the french empire, spanish empire or even up North from the likes of the strong empires of Norway or Sweden, as I admire their longitevity of reign not to mention they had at one opint 1/3 of the world which indeed is something quite special!!!

    Another thing being I liked was the fact and the main reason was they way they taught their colonies English, as it certainly has benefited these nations such as South africa, Zimbabwe, Guyana and even the Sub continent!
