    I didn't choose to be born here, so why should I have to know anything about the country?
    However, I would like to move to Spain in the future and I wouldn't mind doing a Citizenship test.
    Anyway, as if most of the immigrants in Britain come in legitimately, so what's the point?

    You clearly need to be deported. Anyone with me here. I think I am going to create a facebook group asking for your deportation.
    Don't deport me for being stupid

    I just had a bash at one (here) and I got a whopping 33%. Do I win?

    I think it'd be an awful idea.

    National Service would be a better use of resources and the most adequate citizenship test

    I think it's somewhat hypocritical that immigrants eventually learn more about the UK than the indigens. I think it's doubtless that most UK citizens who were born in the UK would fail the test. But then again a good part of them do take citizenship lessons at school. The only thing that bothers me the most is people who have the right to vote but don't research politics properly, that's the only thing I'm bitter about.

    I don't necessarily think a citizenship test is the way to go, but it would be good if everyone entitled to claim for the benefits of living in a welfare state had to show they were actively trying to contribute to society, taxes etc
