    ah I only got 8. Good thing my citizenship papers have come through, I won't have to sit this. I have my affirmation of alliegeance ceremony on tuesday.

    I hardly think that learning a few general knowledge facts, makes you a more integrated part of society, does it?
    Huh? To the Queen, or..? Never heard of that before, sounds very Napoleonic..

    Question 1
    Life in the UK says to be British means you should...

    A: "Respect laws, the elected political structures, traditional values of mutual tolerance and respect for rights and mutual concern."


    B: "Share in the history and culture of an island nation with a character moulded by many different peoples over more than two thousand years."


    C: "be part of a modern European democracy, one with a tradition of sharing our ways with the world – and allowing the world to bring its ways to us."


    Obviously all real British men, even the Welsh, and most women, realise the correct answer is B.

    Yet the 'British' government thinks the correct answer is A. Must we respect unjust and unreasonable laws to be British? Or respect the political system? Accept traditional values? And so on? Since when?

    And what do they object to in answer B? It sounds positively multiculti!

    I scored 8

    9/15... Well, according to THEIR idea of Britishness anyway. That sort of thing emphasizes just what is wrong with our country today...
    q1) To be British means you should... 'Share in the history and culture...' WRONG. NO I'M BLOODY WELL NOT!!!! Who does 'Life in the UK' think it is, a quango telling me what it means to be British. You have no idea how mad that makes me!
    q6) Now i thought F. Christmas was from the North Pole, but the Politically Correct feel that this test had to it made me feel that the 'right' answer would be Lapland, so I got that 'wrong'. oh well...

    "Who was the first person in Britain to be recorded in history?" They should have put that in the quiz and make it a bit harder...

    Yes, B had politically correct written all over it.

    "traditional values of mutual tolerance and respect for rights and mutual concern" - what hot air!

    Yes me too I found that far more important than A, and thought B wasn't relevant. I got 8 (of course Santa lives on the North Pole! ).
