The British Nationality Test: How British Are You?
- Paperback - Black & White Publishing
The deadpan but hilarious 'British Nationality Test' marks a truly new direction for the genre and is well removed from those insipid and often rather base joke books. Fast forward to the time when global warming has kicked in and Britain has been transformed into a Mediterranean paradise. Faced with waves of immigration, the government is forced to bring in a challenging nationalality test in an attempt to stem the human tide of aspiring citizens. The twist is that this is a test with a difference. Out goes Latin and biology and in comes the likes of gender studies and sports studies, with hilarious results.
