5 "Tells" that the Stock Markets Are About to Reverse

David Cameron Defends British Power, After Russia 'Small Island' Snub

Politics / UK Politics Sep 07, 2013 - 12:13 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Politics

We are living in a fast changing world. That is never more so than for the status of many countries, and where the small Island of Britain is concerned, not so long ago Britain really was GREAT BRITAIN.

Unfortunately, Britain in geopolitical terms has been on a century long trend towards coming to reflect the actual size of Britain in terms of geography and population (having lost its colonies decades ago), in respect of which the older one is then the more in denial one is likely to be in terms of Britain's actual standing in the world.


However, it could be worse, we could be France! America's new poodle!

Island house prices

Yes, and there are many advanatages to living on an Island aka house prices :)

And Czar Putin ignores teh fact that in recent years 400,000 of Russia's richest and smartest (including criminals) have parked themselves in London.

geographical weight

How did you calculate your graphic? And even though it's shrunk, it's still punching above its geographical weight in 2020.

GDP and military strength

Hi

GDP and military strength, a map of all countries would show the US being about X3 its geographic size and most of Africa would be tiny.

When I get time I will try and make such a map but will require sourcing software or programming to generate.

In 1900 the US and Britain were roughly equally matched which is why the US in the early 1930's saw Britain "The Red Empire" as the MAIN threat to its interests and planned to attack and sieze Canada!

Britain will always generate a bigger map than geogpraphy because we are more densely populated than most countries, with above average GDP per capita.

Russia

If the Russians believe that we are a small of no importance country then why is it that they have to discuss Britain so much on there news program's ?.

Czar Putin

Because despite Russia's huge land mass and potential, at this point in time is LESS geopolitical important than tiny Britain.

Czar Putin is Russia's Assad.

Totalitarian states

All of the totalitarian states on one side (with Russia) and on the other side we have well err.. Nations trending towards becoming totalitarian states.

It's all differing shades of grey with hidden agenda's.

Time we got real

I think our standing in the world would actually be enhanced if our preening vain politicos stopped strutting about the place on G20 conferences etc trying to pretend we are still an empire and actually started recognising the limits of our power. At the minute we look like the walter mitty's of Europe, it is embarrassing, especially as we would have nothing to be ashamed of anyway. I see the "special relationship" is in the news again. Exactly illustrates my point. Obama hates the British for what happened to his grandfather in Kenya and in any case Washingtons idea of a relationship is everyone doing what they say. Time to get real I think.
