Border Control Entrance Exam
Want to find out how British you really are?From our stiff upper lips and blithe willingness to form an orderly queue, to our quirky traditions, drunken antics and borderline psychotic leisure pursuits, Brits are renowned throughout the world for being so... darned... British.We're a mass of contradictions, as changeable as the weather in the Scottish highlands, as cosy as a Cornish cream tea, as bright and colourful as a chicken tikka masala, or as morose as a lump of Welsh slate.This unique quiz book probes, exposes and celebrates the true essence of Britishness in all its guises, from chasing cheese downhill and self-deprecation, to naming cakes after Northern towns and always remaining alert for a fruity innuendo.
