i got these wrong:
-Almost 60m people live in the UK. By what factor do the native-born English outnumber their Scots or Welsh neighbours?
-According to Life in the UK, where does Father Christmas come from :o
-According to the book, where does the myth of Father Christmas come from? :tape:
-And finally, what does Life in the UK tell you it is "very important" to do when engaging a solicitor?

Back to that pub. The police turn up with the ambulance and an officer asks you to attend an interview at the station. What are your rights?
What's the minimum time you must have been married before you can divorce?
And finally, what does Life in the UK tell you it is "very important" to do when engaging a solicitor?

I got those right, Sarah... which - I believe - proves you're the British and I'm just a foreigner ;)

I didn't look to see what I got right and wrong. I guessed Victorians, but I don't know if that's right.

14/15. I'm currently about to dethrone the Queen ;)

Monica Rules - I'm not convinced by that Welsh/Scottish to English ratio thing either. But then there are 3million welsh people LIVING in Wales so I guess they mean living all over the UK? I dunno.

I'm amazed there wasn't a question about the weather and more importantly: "How much tea can you drink before you spontaneously combust?" ;)

And I got these wrong:
Almost 60m people live in the UK. By what factor do the native-born English outnumber their Scots or Welsh neighbours?
When did all 18-year-olds get the vote?
According to Life in the UK, where does Father Christmas come from?
According to the book, where does the myth of Father Christmas come from?
What's the minimum time you must have been married before you can divorce?

I got 6/15. This book is clearly a load of rubbish as I'm as Britsh as they come. What a waste of taxpayers' money.
