Great Britain at the Top


I have been getting some stick about my negativity towards The Greatest Britain from friends and relatives. Things aren’t that bad in the UK, it is not all about doom and gloom and how the government are failing in their responsibility, increasing congestion charge and in general being incompetent.

I did respond that this is what I hear and read and I cannot change the facts as they stand, however as a good will gesture I am going to take time out and look for something which in which The Greatest Britain comes top, not looking at teen pregnancies, fuel taxes, number of speed cameras etc…no this was going to be something in which the Greatest Britain can be proud of and say to their friends down the Hatch and Barrel over a pint of Bombardier…did you hear that we are…

Not only did I manage to find something which The Greatest Britain tops but it also beat Sweden fair and square…

An international poll has taken place by the worlds leading expert on cities and countries. By asking some 30,000 people in 35 countries what they think about their nation in relation to a variety of areas, such as sport, export, culture, tourism. This has then created a brand index in which The Greatest Britain is top! Great Britain is the world’s favourite nation’s brand, beating Germany in second, Italy third, Sweden 7th and the USA a measly 9th…

Great Britain scored well in the categories of Export, Culture and Tourism. British people are however seen as unfriendly and cold…A mixture of old and new culture and the country is seen as important but not threatening???

Sweden in return is seen as honest, exciting because of its design, fashion and creativity. Brands such as Ikea, Volvo and Absolut Vodka are at the top but the Swedes are lacking a bit of culture but has a lot of sex appeal…
So there we are hats off to The Greatest Britain stand up be proud and be counted….
