Take the citizenship test

Have a go at this: a selection of the questions asked of immigrants seeking UK citizenship. I am ashamed to admit that, despite my addiction to news, politics, history and culture, I only managed 18 out of 24 (wrong on 8, 9, 10, 14, 18 and 24). Thankfully, my Irish passport means you can't get rid of me. Mwahhahahahahahahahaha etc. I wonder how UK citizens would fare.

Post your scores in the comments box.

Haha. 10 out of 24.

That's confirmed to me that I really should be living in Boston.

So long, suckers!

Oh my - an honest 12. Please don't report me. I'll start paying extra attention to Downton Abbey, I promise...

Oh dear 13.
I also got 8,9,14&24 wrong... err and some others, but got 10 & 18 right.
Seems unlikely that anyone would know the number of under 19s there are in England off the top of their heads.
I tried to calculate in my head the school days and made it 200, maybe they get more days off nowadays.

A shameful 8. I did answer the question correctly about Hallowe'en, though.

Each Hallowe'en, when I was married, my ex-husband (he, of the porn addiction) would lovingly and painstakingly craft out a sign and laminate it, before placing it in the hall window telling trick or treaters to piss off. Then we had to spend the evening sat in the dark, pretending to be out.
Oh, happy days...
