What is not a fundamental principle of British life?

Treating others with fairness
Looking after the environment
Driving a car
Looking after yourself and family

I only knew it was Dorset because I grew up about five miles away.  :lol:  Maiden Castle is literally just a hill.

Maiden Castle is absolutely in Durham. I mean, there might be another place similarly named elsewhere but Maiden Castle is objectively in Durham. It's where Keegan's team used to train.

There are five Maiden Castles in the UK, according to Wikipedia.

That's brilliant. The true Brit who wrote this, obviously doesn't know Britain very well.

I've been there, it's rather moving :lol:.

There are loads of other tests, most of which seemed rather easier. I presume it's something like the US Citizenship test, where there are a limited number of questions and they give you the answers to most, you just need to learn them.
Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.

Got 12 right. I feel like its more of an English test rather than UK in fairness.

No s***, we hate them even more than the EU brigade.

I got 13 out of 24.

Some of them struck me as almost trick questions that require nitpicky precision, not a general picture of UK history. People might know the US declaration of independence in 1776, but not the later year the question was about. The question about emancipation of slavery has two different dates, once in the British Empire and then the Emancipation Act itself twenty odd years later. The Queen started in 1952, but the coronation was in 1953.

Anyway, anyone who thinks this is a fit and proper way to judge potential citizens is a t***.

A German woman I work with sailed through it. But she detests the Tories for treating a taxpayer that way, whilst embracing the tax-dodging tabloid owners.

my wife has to do that test for reals this year, and it could torpedo a 5 year £8k or so process

good times
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Sleep now in the fire

Apparently a poll of Guardian readers has revealed that they no longer 'hate' the rich.
I'm confused, haven't Guardian readers - well, 66% of them - always been the actual rich?

Why would they be expected to hate them? And why does it matter? Basically I’m confused.

I meant the thing that 'lefties' are supposed to be. Haters of inherited wealth, tax dodging billionaires etc etc.
Well, apparently not.
Though the Guardian has turned into more of a centrist/liberal paper.
I did some photography inside their new building a few years back, and the bosses there are very, very posh.

Oh right, I guess. I mean, I don’t agree with those things but I don’t ‘hate’ them. The system is the problem, not individual rich people.

How does the actual test work? Is it just random questions about anything at large or is it x number of questions from a larger predetermined list so you just need to have a good memory?

Think someone said earlier in the thread it was the latter.
