What would happen to UK if it stopped its Navy from policing the world as many prosperous nations do not have a Navy that patrols the globe?

    Not much, we only have about 3 ships.

    It stopped being a useful force several years ago, type 45 destroyers which can't sail in hot weather and at best cannot both sail and fight at the same time, aircraft carriers without aircraft, more admirals than ships, stop kidding yourself about the Royal Navy...

    The historic name is the Royal Navy,would the asker oblige and use it. The Swiss are as wealthy as one can get but it would be hard for them to have a navy,LOL. HM Royal Navy helps to protect the good on the seas. Hopefully we will soon have a male PM and male secretary of state for defence.

      One of my TD is my old foe Jack no doubt. He will never again need the protection of the Nelsons fleet (?) but so sad to hear an Englishman talk like that,something an American would never do.

    Nothing much. Silly Navy would just play in Southampton.

    That would never happen, because the Royal Navy are in the business of protecting British overseas assets.

    USA would increase its patrols, and ask UK to reimburse.
