Britishness Test

If, like me, you're a fan of Radio 4, you'll hear them from time to time talk about the government's desire to have all those who are seeking permanent residence in the UK take a Britishness test.

Unfortunately, the sample, just for fun test I took didn't ask you questions about how to form an orderly queue, (a very important part of our national life) but rather how many MPs are there in Parliament. (If I hadn't been given some options, I would never have guessed/remembered.)

I got 8/10, and was relieved to be informed that I had passed! Click here and see if you can beat me!

I just couldn't see any reason why "Pregnant women and women with babies under 12 months old" would qualify for dental treatment any more than anyone else, so I left that box unchecked.
And I said the civil service were "efficient", but the word they were looking for was "professional". Pshhht...
