Publish an article in a large enough news source saying "BRITONS OFFICIALLY TALLEST IN THE WORLD" with some bs source
Humans are so ready to challenge anything, so if this really were the case you would find no evidence from anyone to challenge your point. If there was evidence suggesting otherwise, people would be very quick to publish it in contention.

Taking a scientific approach, you could design and do a cross-sectional study looking at the average height of British people. You could then do cross-sectional studies in every other country in the world to determine the average height of people there using the same methodology. Then you could do a statistical analysis of the above studies to see if there was a significant difference in the height of British people compared to people from other countries.
You could also take another approach, which would probably be less accurate, and gather data on height and other demographic of large population of people across the world. You could then do regression analysis to determine if there is an association between ethnicity and height.
Another possible approach would be to publish a study stating that British people are the tallest. You could then wait for researchers in other countries to publish studies suggesting this is not true. Then you could wait for someone to do a systematic review on the topic to see who is the tallest
