Actually, from a Traditional Folk POV, perhaps we should rejoice in the survival of the term British Empire; which expresses, whatever one's view of it, both a phrase and an entity much embedded in our history, although the actual concept which was the referent of its name only now survives, if at all, in unrecognisably altered form.
