The Real UK Citizenship Test

UK readers who haven’t managed to completely ignore the news, or missed yesterday’s post on the subject might have heard that the government is planning to revise the test taken by candidates for UK citizenship. The plan is to remove all that nonsense about “rights” and indeed anything that happened more recently than about 1945 with much more relevant questions about Byron, Shakespeare and well, whatever Theresa May thinks is important this week.

But some people have given some serious thought to the kind of things that people wanting to live in the UK really need to know, and have produced a much more sensible test than either the current version or whatever they come up with next. I’m happy to say that I got full marks, having spotted the trick question[1]. Can you pass the test?
