Whatever your opinions of Little Britain (personally, I loved the first series), please don't confuse them with this song.
Whether Lucas & Walliams took their title from this song, I don't know (if anyone does, please comment).
What is knowable is that the two have little in common, other than being from the same country.

Onto the song. This song is reminiscent of Pomp and Circumstance and seems to take inspiration from the overblown Imperial triumphalism of 1930's Britain. Like the following track on the album (A Canterbury Tale), it is the type of song that could only be written by a British group as it is filled with a distinctly British ethos & feel which simply couldn't be found elsewhere.

Added to this, there is a distinct streak of Acid House rave in the song, what with the upbeat tempo & the samples of "Britain today is a powerhouse. Of ideas, experiments..."

Why it is not more popular, I'm not sure. What I do know is that it is amazing when played live by the band & has always been a staple of their act.
It also deserves much greater & more distinctive fame than simply being the inspiration of a TV show...
