Tell that to the Iranians. They didnt seem to respect your naval prowess all that much when they captured your soldiers while in sight of other british Naval vessels.
The only problem with Britain is that we are becoming too politically correct and touchy of hurting people's feelings. A couple of hundred years ago and the Royal Navy would have blown any boat out of the water that threatened it's sailors. That said, under threat in proper wartime the political correctness crap would go out of the window, just ask the Argies.
More on topic, most Brits don't think that they're God's chosen. We just know that we're proud because we're good at war and we're angry because we're s**t at sports that we've invented, and we like beer and that's all that really matters in the world.
