In this article, the writer discusses the United Kingdom (U.K.) that consists of the countries of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Island and is also referred to as Great Britain. The writer looks at the British social structure and the Parliament system and then takes a look into aspects of British culture including sports, the military and family life in the U.K. The writer also glances at the British education system and looks at the European Union as it relates to the U.K. The writer concludes that while there have been some changes to the culture of Britain because of the European Union, such changes have not seriously altered the social face of the United Kingdom.
From the Paper:"Britain was also instrumental in the development of the Industrial Revolution, and many inventors and entrepreneurs come from Britain. Other contributions to Cinema include the famous Ealing Studios. Britain also produces a number of international pop acts each year, and popular music is a fundamental part of British Culture.
Another aspect of Modern British culture is in the field of sports: British rugby players and cricketers are among some of the best in the world, and eagerly followed by millions. Britain is, of course, home of Wimbledon, the international tennis competition which also has millions of fans, and is televised on terrestrial channels as well as through Satellite."
