The Greatest Empire the world has ever seen controlling 1/4 of the earth’s surface, the United Kingdom and its Empire are characterised by Protestant Christian values and rule by law. The United Kingdom’s Industrial and Military might are unmatched. Its mission is to expand Christianity and civilisation throughout the entire earth lifting savage populations out of darkness into the light of Britannic civilisation.
The Commonwealth is the greatest empire ever known.

That's a load of BS Ladyperson, the Muslims hated everyone long before there was a British Empire.

The Empire was the most glorious institution in known history. They say the sun never set on it; this was because it covered so much of the earth's surface (east/west) that there was never a time when it was not daytime in some part of the empire.

Britain's power and Empire was founded upon its powerful navy and its command of the seas, something which itself grew out of its status as an island nation.
Rule Britannia! Britannia rules the waves! Britons never never never shall be slaves!

The still-running empire (under the name of the "Commonwealth of Nations").

Evil come back plan:

Now all our enemies know us the British empire, but now we cunningly disguised ourselves (on the advice of General Spike Mielgain), and are calling ourselves the Commonwealth of nations, soon all the former terrortories of our MIGHTY EMPIRE ON WHICH THE SUN SHALL NEVER RISE SET, shall join us unwittingy believing that they are just signing for a sports contest, and BAMMM there in the empire again! Canada has already fallen! SOON THE FREE PEOPLES OF THE WORLD SHALL FALL TO OUR ALL DISTORTING DARKNESS AND WE SHALL BUILD A DISUTOPIA OF TEA AND DEATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Person 1: "Fuck me the british empire owns."

the great british empire was unmatched for hundreds of years. They took india, much of africa, north america, parts of south america, hong kong and other parts of the far east, all of whales, and some of central america.
The british empire was like many befor it, rome, mongols, persians, and they all fell.

The only empire in history to spread ideas of freedom, democracy, the parliamentary system of government, and rule of law across the globe. The Empire ended slavery in many parts of Africa, widow burning in India, female infantacide, and suppressed the Thugee cult.
Many of the roads, bridges, canals, schools, and railroads in third world countries were built by the British Empire in the 19th and 20th centuries. Even Gandhi praised the British Empire.

Murdering, racist land thieves who raped and plundered the planet for centuries, making England one of the more hated countries on earth to this day.
Despite what Englishmen and their lovely egos will tell you, the British Empire is rotting in history's garbage dump where it belongs.
