    No. We are an independent nation, and we play a leading role in shaping the future of this world.

    You can be an independent nation and still under the sphere of influence of another country. Look at how many American tv shows/movies/programmes there are in the uk. Look at the amount of news we are fed about America in the uk. Look at the BLM protest that took place today in the uk because of what happened in the US. look at the way our government acts to the actions of the US.

    ...that's exactly what I mean dude. See the spoiler? How the **** can this tiny little island with little to offer ever hope to influence any other country any more?

    Is it?
    Yes. Practically every country that speaks English, or even any language... has American media and shows all over their tvs. Like how everyone is so obsessed over the presidential election there, yet there is much less talk about other countries elections.
    Being in NATO too means that the UK relies partially on the US as a defence partner and stations thousands of American troops there.
    Major institutes like the IMF, World Bank and UN are in America so it controls the finance and internet connections. Companies like Apple and Facebook can be searched by the NSA etc. breaching security in the UK.
    In most political and military situations the US and UK will go hand in hand, like the Iraq war when Blair waited for Bush to start. The Suez canal crisis the US condemned the UK, France and Israel and the entire thing fell apart.
    So yes.
