Re: UK Citesenship do YOU qualify?

Perhaps it`s a spoof site,........ like the one for "have you got any speeding tickets...... enter your reg no here.... and it comes up with a rediculous speed on a road you never went on, at a time you were at home in bed, or abroad on holiday....
Just because it says it is the "official".... doesn`t mean it is !.  Roll eyes

Re: UK Citesenship do YOU qualify?

i reckon it's a spoof.  it won't respond to ctrl-enter to try to enlarge the print and there is nothing to indicate who put the page there.  if it was really official, it would say so in some recognisably british way.
seein' as how it ain't kosher, and seein' as how i wuz hatched here, i ain't a-partakin' thereof.

Re: UK Citesenship do YOU qualify?

Since I used to live in Norwich, I can confirm that the address of HMSO Stationery Office is correct...
However, the company name (which exists) is a spoof

79%  in 5 minutes 35 seconds (would fail the HP standard) Cry
But think I must agree with artificer, not necessary a spoof, cannot see what its trying to achieve or the point of it.
Following Gary's and Fox's findings, is this one of the Government websites like http://www.lovechips.co.uk/ that is a waste of taxpayers money. Or are they just marketing a book
Simple (English) citizenship test would be to read the following words
BREAD, DEBT, INDICTMENT, HANDKERCHIEF, GIVE, HALFPENNY, GNAW,
HOUR, FRIEND, MARIJUANA, KNOW, CALM, MNEMONIC, AUTUMN, PEOPLE,
PSALM, COLQUHOUN (a Scottish surname), FORECASTLE, ISLAND, CASTLE,
GUARD, MILNGAVIE (a Scottish place name), WRONG, SIOUX, PEPYS,
RENDEZVOUS
