You're biased.

Is that "Great" as in "Wall of China" and "Barrier Reef", or "great" as in "Depression" and "Balls of Fire"?



Cheers,

or "great" as in (coughs) ... Britain....

C'mon, really, was Britain ever all that "great"?

The 'great' in Great Britain is really a description of the geographical area it covers (England, Scotland and Wales) - the 'lesser' Britain was originally Brittany in France (Britannia minor).

To use 'great' as a description of our achievements would be both immodest - and inadequate.

True...I mean, Bucks Fizz were pretty great, hey?

Isn't Lesser Britain that documentary series that Tom Baker narrates?

Well, why should it be different from any other?...
