Is Britain Still a Force to Be Reckoned With? (Video)

Someone, somewhere once said: “The sun never sets on the British Empire”.

And they were right. Britain not so long ago had one of the largest and most extensive empires in the world.

Large chunks of Africa and all of India and Australia plus parts of Asia were just some of the areas under its dominion.

Parts of America of course were also part of it for a while.

That was until the declaration of independence in 1776.

After being maxed out by the Second World War, Britain’s empire fell by the wayside. See the video above to find out more.

But how strong is Britain today?

Stronger than you may have thought old chap.
