Hell, if America was no longer sheltering your tiny island under our massive, Kevlar wing, you would be dominated in less than a week.
Also, all that was back when there was no U.N. stopping people from invading each other. If America wanted to, we would EASILY control 1/4 of the world. We just let you live on that island until we decide we want it.
"At least you would have a Royal Family again.

The Argies couldn't hold the Falklands and your excuse for not helping was that you thought it, strategically impossible! Please do not say you could 'easily' do anything without having done it first.

The British Empire is still alive and well, in fact they run things right from the very top of the pyramid
You say that and yet you can't win in Afghanistan, you couldn't win in Irag, Vietnam. Coming to think about it has the US EVER won a war on it's own? No? Didn't think so.
In 1953, the newly-crowned Queen Elizabeth set off on a six-month, 45,000-mile round-the-world journey. The Coronation Tour was the most ambitious royal tour ever undertaken, and would radically change Britain's relationship with the world. It was the first time a British monarch visited the Colonies not to show them who was boss, but to persuade them that Britain was worth staying attached to, as part of a new entity: the Commonwealth. Actor and playwright Kwame Kwei-Armah retraces the young Queen's journey across five continents: from the Caribbean, Australasia and the Pacific Islands, to Africa, Asia and the Mediterranean. A self-proclaimed 'Child of Empire', whose parents came to the UK from the West Indies, Kwame examines the enduring significance of the tour for those in the Colonies, and the critical importance it played in shaping the multi-cultural country we live in today.
