I think those colonial ideas died out when the sun set on the British Empire.

Apart from a few places in Spain, which have enclaves of immigrants from quite a few northern European countries, and therefore stick in their own communities, most Brits who emigrate now have to assimilate in whichever country they've decided to move to. Be it Australia, Canada or Dubai. They adapt to the cultural idenity of their host country, but are still proud of their British roots.
