“AN IMPOSSIBILITY”

By Pete Moore On August 30th, 2019

The BBC asks the dumbest questions.

Citizenship test: How hard should it be to become British?

Foreigners cannot become British of course. One is British by birth (English by the grace of God). A foreigner might be handed a British passport, but that is a bureaucratic chit. It doesn’t erase the past, it cannot hide the humble origins.

  1. your still not an American…..

  2. An you’re still abusing the English language.

  3. You have both made grammatical/spelling errors in these two comments. Perhaps you need a competent Irishman (Noel, Paul, Seimi ? ) to reach you the English language 😉

  4. // to reach you the English language //

    Three in a row?

    You all need a good Christian Brothers’ schooling. It’s never too late, you know.

    //How hard should it be to become British?//

    But what if yours is hard enough but you still don’t want to be?

  5. Noel, I put that mistake in deliberately…. well that’s my story and I’m sticking to it 😉

  6. Ps my dad went to a Christian brothers school in Dublin, but it obviously didn’t rub off on me….

  7. //my dad went to a Christian brothers school in Dublin//

    I’m sure it was the same one (primary anyway) that I went to.

    He had a good start in life, your dad.

  8. The Englishman’s propensity for mangling his own language has always befuddled their Celtic cousins across the water, leaving them perturbed at the apparent lack of finesse employed when using his mother tongue 🙂

  9. Seimi the show off 😉
