Do you qualify for British Residency?

The following test is based on the "Britishness" test for immigrants hoping to gain British Residency.

Its quite tough. I'm born and bread in Britain and only managed to get an embarassing 6 correct out of 15!

How'd you do?

If at first you don't succeed, failure may be your style.

I got 10/15 LOL - what funny questions. I did Fee's clean page one - as I didn't want to know the answers beforehand.

Do people really have to answer questions like that though??

I always cook with wine, and sometimes I actually put it in the food.

I got 11. Ashamed to say I cocked up our national saints' days, where Father Christmas is based, PG, and the proportion of English people to Celts.

I got 12 out of 15. I got the police interview, the dog license and the solicitors question wrong.

God - I'm the most un-British member of the forum!

I hope they don't deport me to Stupid Land.

How I knew a lot of the answers was in fact having lived outside Britain. I learned more about the British way of life and Santa Claus etc by being in a different country and taking the time to find out about Britain by comparing them with the American way of doing things.
