I don't mean to be rude, but when was the last time you bought anything made in the UK. Now with the financial services sector is disarray, what does the UK have left to offer the world?
I was in England for three months last year, which is where I developed this routine, and there was a great moment where I was talking about various words that had made it into the dictionary, like the word 'bouncebackability'. Part of the reason it got in there was that a sporting commentator in England had said that if he used it often enough, it'd get in the dictionary. And I stood on stage in this place called High Wickham and I said that as far as I was concerned that was not an appropriate criteria for a word being in the dictionary, and this guy down the front put his hand up and said 'um, it's criterion,'" Hills laughs. "I said 'that is superb: you've picked me up on misusing the English language in a routine about the misuse of the English language,' and he said 'yes, that's called irony.'"

I don't see UK dying any more than US dying itself.
But what is getting in trouble right now, is the Euro, thankfully big trading nations are smart enough to keep their own currency current and backed by their own resources.
