Life in the UK: Becoming a British Citizen
Where does the PM stay in London?
When did Guy Fawkes plant his bomb?
Which percentage of Brits use drugs?
Where do Cockney speakers come from?
When did women first get the vote?
What date was the Irish famine?
What’s the speed limit on motorways?
When was the Queen’s coronation?
Upon which day is the poppy worn?
Who’d speak with a Scouse accent?
When did the National Health Service start?
Who is Scotland’s patron saint?
What does the National Census collect?
Are Baptists Christians or Jews?
How often are General Elections held?
To qualify you must chose!
I’ve read the book. I’m ashamed to say
There’s lots I didn’t know
But then, I’ve only been living here
For 66 years or so.
