Let's not get carried away here. The 'Great' in Great Britain refers to its size by comparison with the small one in France (Brittany), not to any inherent greatness, talent or power.
Granted, but in my opinion probably should be.......
Considering that Great Britain once governed 75% of the planet (Hence the worlds common language), started the industrial revolution, and invented:
The computer, The World wide web, The light bulb, The electric motor, Jet engine, Telephone, Television, Electric telegraph, Steam turbine, Steam engine, Passenger railway, Reflecting telescope, Military tank, Modern torpedo, Cement, Hydraulic press, Photography, Hovercraft, ATM, Tin Can, Electric vacuum cleaner, Waterproof material, Stainless steel, The Glider, The Toothbrush, Automatic kettle, Carbon fibre, Pneumatic tyre, Disc brakes.....amoungst many more......I think you'll find that Great Britain was, and is, a 'Great' country.
Thailand has invented,
An HIV vaccine....That's pretty much it!
The point was, until they can cease the relentless cycle of Army then real government, nothing is going to get any better for the poor populous, regarding education, or anything else.
'Great', An accolade Britain unreservedly deserves.........outlined in the contributions to the planet above.
