I think its insulting to say that, even if in jest.
Brits have always been the best soldiers and right there with us all along the way. They are probably the closest to us in terms of training, equipment, doctrine. But they have a problem (similar to ours) with military being dissasociated from the population, not many serve, not so connected any more. They are also profoundly changed (changing) demographically and the Brits we always depended on may not really exist any more.
