In response to the question that asked when the various saint days for Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland are the only honest answer would be that I can't remember so remind me when it's St. Patrick's day so I can stay indoors and avoid Glasgow's considerable psuedo-Irish population. ("Ah, the craic..." Oh, fuck off - you were born in Govan for God's sake!)
There's also one about the main Christian festivals and when they are. Now I understand Christmas and Easter - and I understand the orthodox theology that argues you can't have the latter without the former - and I know when Christmas is (25th of December, right?) but when the bleeding hell is Easter? They keep moving it, for crying out loud - and according to no pattern I can discern. Something to do with the lunar calendar I believe. Someone explained it to me once but I couldn't concentrate on what they were saying because it sounded completely insane.
It wasn't in the paper but I understand that questions about the Church of England are included. I don't know what they are but I doubt I could answer any of them. For example, if there was a question that asked what the Anglican church actually believed, I'd be at a complete loss. Any answers in the comments box please.
This isn't the only question that isn't about the UK at all but rather England: there's ones about the English legal system and English regional accents. Will they be asked how many members serve on a Scottish jury, hmmm? And how many readers even knew it was different from England? I'm not a nationalist but I am Scottish and that experience alone leads me to believe all this stuff isn't really necessary. Newcomers should obey the law - and I do think learning the language, as well as obviously beneficial, is a simple courtesy that should be observed by any immigrant to any country (New Zealanders and Canadians take note - you struggle in this area I've found) but the rest they can pick up as they go along. Isn't that enough?
