Standing tall

Nick Clegg talking at Davos:  "The UK cannot stand tall in the modern world if it doesn't stand tall in its own backyard."

What on earth does he mean by standing tall?

What has standing tall got to do with the everyday lives of ordinary people?

Is "standing tall" like "punching above our weight"?

Is it all about politicians bigging themselves up and striding about the world thinking they are important (when most people would spit on them if they met them in the street)?
