Paul Sinha's Real British Citizenship Test: Everything you need to know to call yourself British

Availability: Ready to download

Since 2005, well over one million prospective immigrants have attempted to cement permanent residency in the UK by taking the Home Office-devised ‘Life in the UK’ test. With questions such as ‘What is the name of the admiral who died in a sea battle in 1805 and has a monument in Trafalgar Square, London?’, it’s as dull as ditchwater and a hopelessly inadequate preparation Since 2005, well over one million prospective immigrants have attempted to cement permanent residency in the UK by taking the Home Office-devised ‘Life in the UK’ test. With questions such as ‘What is the name of the admiral who died in a sea battle in 1805 and has a monument in Trafalgar Square, London?’, it’s as dull as ditchwater and a hopelessly inadequate preparation for life as a fully functioning Brit. After all, there’s simply no point in knowing the exact span of the Hundred Years War if you don’t know about Alan Sugar, Nando’s, the rise of UKIP and the dangers of ordering half a pint. In this hilarious yet factual guide to the ins and outs of British life, popular stand-up comedian, ITV quiz show villain and fiercely proud Brit Paul Sinha guides you through the minefield. With sections on how to negotiate a pub, the joys of chicken tikka masala (and other British non-British dishes), the finer points of football fandom, British cities that hate each other, whether anyone really cares about religion, and – of course – how to behave in a queue, this chortlesome book is all you need if you want to call yourself a British citizen, whether you were born here or not.

    I saw this displayed at my library, so I thought I ought to check it out and have a fun afternoon or two of reading. The book was fairly entertaining and somewhat educational, especially in the UK pub-scene and television. This made me wish my Cockney Grandma was still alive so I could ask her opinion on a few of these subject. I think this would be a fun book to display on a coffee table—if I had one of them!

    Masterfully funny A-Z of British life from the Chaser. Joy on every page and perfect for wannabe British citizens.
