...but if you was to include second languages, or most commonly taught, it would be number 1.
You say UK isn't the most influential economy, it is pointed out to you that those that asses these things put it at number 1...so you move and say economies keep moving? and? that's how all economies work.....the question was whether London holds influence, it does, as shown...so what's your point?
...and Superpowers don't care about economy? do what! It is everything to them, as it drives everything else they do, and the influence they have on other nations.
Superpowers don't care about British Media? well then Iran won't mind allowing the BBC back in again then will they....afterall, media means nothing to any of the big players, right?
Skyscanner I would rather trust wiki then krsyystal.com.
Anyway, point is that UK cant compare to Russia. Or to China. And those two (as I understand) are against attack on Syria.
I dont agree with Putin administration when they said that. I think its wrong because they show muscles. I wish that all countries could vote.
But what would happened if USA and UK start attack without UN "promission"? In that sense Russian statement was on place.
Who is UK to act without promission and against Russia and China interests?
About economy, UK is falling. USA is falling from 80s. Germany is going stronger.
And this is future, for now.
Again, in that sense, UK is "small island."
