The government has published Life in the United Kingdom, a 150-page book for prospective British citizens. If you want the passport, you'll have to read the book and then answer 24 questions drawn from its contents. So let's see how well you do...

As for me, a native, I only managed to get 9/15 (I was foiled by the question about PG!)

I almost ready to leave the district council. (I recall my last five hours in Heathrow... No, thanks...) Probably if I would like to sit in Parliament better not to visit pubs anymore :happymad:

Interesting, if I want to seat on the throne should I marry Sir Charles? If yes,can I have a lift back to Heathrow please?

You would need to pass an elementary English comprehension test. On the above evidence I fear you would fail.

In Scotland, which is part of Britain it is spelt WHISKY. It is only in Ireland, which is another country altogether where it it spelt WHISKEY.
