Following on from comment in the World Cup thread, it would be interesting to see and collect the views of Great Britain, its people, politicians, culture, achievements, direction... as seen from afar.
Are we revered, a laughing stock or just meh? Is Rule Britannia afloat, listing or sinking below the waves?
Do other nations have a Health Service that is so policised and integral to political campaigns?
Are other nations proud and protective of their culture or ashamed of it?

Former Conservative leader Lord Hague has called for a "decisive change" in the law on cannabis - suggesting that the Tories should consider legalising recreational use of the drug.
Writing in the Daily Telegraph, he said "any war" has been "irreversibly lost".
Lord Hague goes further than senior Tories who have suggested a law change after a boy with epilepsy was given a special licence to use cannabis oil.
The government is creating an expert panel to look into individual cases.
Now call me a cynic but if they legalise it, their mates can make money producing it and government by taxing it.
So the IAAF have taken action to limit the testosterone level in athletes competing in female races.
I feel they should be congratulated for this and it should be rolled out across all sports. This should deal with the "cocks in frocks" issue, so no more men self-identifying as women and competing against women.
No idea whether to feel sorry for the South African intersex runner Semenya who will be affected by these rules, if "she" was born like that then it's not really her fault. She's done alright from her odd genetics and a line has to be drawn somewhere.
However the thing that really caught my eye is that the ANC are calling this racism and mentioning the apartheid era - would they do this if she was white?
Racism will soon mean "any offence to another person", it seems. WTF!
