ABSTRACT
The article discusses how Great Britain's foreign policy has affected its economic and political status. Great Britain's detachment with Europe has become apparent in its strategic problems. Great Britain's rivals, Spain, the Netherlands and France have become wealthier and further advanced in civilization. Great Britain's stand on international affairs has deprived the country of freedom of choice. As part of Great Britain's commitment to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the country is obliged to maintain both ground and air forces in Europe in peacetime.
