Basically. There's a fine line between national pride and xenophobia, while a lot of people seem to think the "great" in Great Britain was awarded to us because we're amazing or something, rather than just referring to the expansion of the kingdom when the Scottish and British thrones merged.

The imperialist mindset is hard to kill.
