Winston Churchill sighed as he said he hasnt won the thing he wished he could. Basically Soviet Union and USA was the two remaining Super Powers after WW2. But what if Great Britannia was the one ruling. That would be cool! You'd have pure non rebellious youths. America kinda opened up the door to what we call inproper behavior which the western world with the help of Brussels bureaucrats of EU helped open here too.

Either way. I would love hats and "Good day sir" every morning if i were to imagine such wonderful world!

Imagine instead of fast food chains. You'd have fast soup chains. Get in line for soup ^^

The U.K. DID win WW2. They lost their superpower status because the Empre was becoming increasingly unsustainable, and it didn't help that they got into the Second World War while still rebuilding from the first one. America became a superpower because they weren't hit by the societal damage of both world wars like Europe had been. They also had most of a continent to play around on and extract resources from, giving them an OP level industrial capability, as well as a quickly growing population. The world you're envisioning would require the US not to have those advantages, which would have been impossible.

Also, I think you're idolizing a past that never actually existed if you think the US is the cause of all improper behaviour and that everything would be fine if everyone just acted like people did in the Victorian era. Even I, British empire fanboy that I am, think that's ridiculous.

I laughed out loud just reading the title of this thread we cannot even run our own country so much as anything beyond that utterly hopeless and clueless it's embarrassing to be British right now.

Hard to say but from what i hear the UK is worse than the US now. As far as ghetto's (not the guns though) and poverty and crime and cameras everywhere/police state and Islamic take over, etc.

I wonder what would have happened if Germany and England had have worked together?

Bit off topic but i have also wondered how the world would have turned out if Germany and Japan would have won.

Quit trying to rationalize nationalistic fanboy ranting.
