Actually, the UK has one of the strongest militaries in the world, stronger than that of the other EU nations. The US and Russia are up there as the strongest and I think Israel is also pretty beefy due to the US backing but the UK still has quite the prolific and effective military.
The UK is also not in the Eurozone but it's economy is usually depicted as being near-enough on-par with that of France quite often. Germany is still the economic superpower within the EU though being about 1.5 times more profitable than the other successful countries in the EU. It pales in comparrison to the US but then again... when you're country is bigger than a continent you've gotta expect it to be pretty beefy economically. (Unless it's Russia in which case it's actually worse off than the UK right now. Ha.)
Anyway, by no means the leader on the world stage anymore the UK is still hanging in there and is consistently in the top five/ten richest nations as well as the top five strongest militaries.

Here's the deal though, top 5 does not mean top tier. It would be like comparing the top 5 runners in the olympics and calling them god tier while having Usain Bolt beat the other four by 10 seconds.
UK doesn't even make 5th place in any list of countries. It is a 2nd tier country in Europe itself, with the vital fact that France's voice in Europe and the World is growing while the UK's is shrinking. Things like UKIP, and leaving the EU will probably serve to isolate the country more.
If we go by military prowess the UK is outclassed by god tiered countries like US, Russia and China who have the capability to take over entire continents before they are defeated. While the UK is impressive in the military side due to their exceptionally well trained troops, they aren't on the same level.
I thought this would also be an interesting read......
If Britain joined the US, it would be the 2nd poorest state in the Union. 0.o Poorest if London wasn't included. It is only better to live in Britain if you're the bottom 5% of the population apparently.
Perspectives and from mine UK isn't one of the "elite" nations.
Although I will admit when I'm wrong, the UK is not in the Eurozone, but in the EU.
