No. of Questions: 12 Wrongly Answered: 5 Correctly Answered: 7

I don't think I can be kicked out though, I was born here. :)

9/12 for me, also by logical guess.

What irrelevant twaddle!

How many poorly rated comprehensive shcool white British kids have ever heard of the Huguenots

SillBill I got that one right on account of having watched Henry of Navarre on DVD over Christmas!

9 out of 12!! Like Quickbeam, logical guesses. The fact they have a test for Urdu speakers tickled me. I thought the point was to have applicants with a reasonable standard of English.

Yes, they were the victims of the St Bartholomew's day massacre. The film's quite good but in French with subtitles.

The St Valentines Day massacre in Some Like It Hot is much lighter to take in...

I did [excedingly] well in 2 of the tests ... 100% British ... my brain is now working at optimum speed for University Challenge ... it's on in half-an-hour.

My brains optimised more towards The Sweeney on ITV4 same time.

Watch out for the ubiquitous empty boxes in the car chases!

8/12 logical guess work I only though three of the questions were relavent.

So the house of Lords isn't important - get rid of it then to save money :0)

6 out of 12 on the standard test. Fine. I'm British to the bone but if they want to get me out of here, fine. Anywhere in the Med will do LoL

I always thought it was "Jason and the Huguenots"

I believe Winston Churchill was a descendant of one (or maybe 2) of them. Anyway Jon Pertwee and Eddie Izzard definitely were.

I got 5/12 so I failed. the quiz is like that board game Trivial Pursuit
