New citizen test is 'far too hard', say Blackburn immigrant workers

TESTING TIMES: Students sitting the Life in the UK exam

TESTING TIMES: Students sitting the Life in the UK exam

First published in News by , Reporter

IMMIGRANTS attempting to gain residency in Blackburn have said a new citizenship test for foreign nationals will not equip them for life in the UK.

The Life in the UK exam focuses on British history, with no requirement to know how to register with a GP, how to ring for an ambulance, or what to do if someone is attacking your neighbour which is currently required.

People working with the immigrant population, teaching citizenship and studying immigration, in East Lancashire have called the test ‘far too hard’ and ‘a complete waste of money’.

Shajia Habib, a woman from Pakistan who is applying for indefinite leave to remain so she can be with her husband in Blackburn, said: “It is important to know the history of a country if you want to live there, so you can know some of the culture.

“I find it very interesting and not too difficult, but it is much more important to know how to live life day by day.

“You need to know what to do in everyday situations, like how to get your child into school, and what to do if you become ill.”

Siraj Parkar, a doctor from India who is also applying for indefinite leave to live with his wife in Blackburn, said: “Basic knowledge of how to function in the country is essential, although it is important to be able to know how to be a good citizen and get along in the culture too.”

Many of the people wishing to move here from abroad want to join spouses who have settled here.

But as of October 1, when the new test comes in, even if an applicant is married to a person living in the UK, if they do not pass entry three level English, the equivalent of a D in GCSE literacy, and the Life in the UK exam, they will not able to join their spouse.

Tahir Hussain, chief executive of Al-Hayat Language School, a government accredited English and citizenship college in Brookhouse, said he feared most people would fall at the first hurdle.

He said: “I’m not afraid to say I would fail the new Life in the UK test, and I have been teaching English for ten years and lived here since I was six.English people moving to India aren’t expected to go through this level of exams.”

Anjum Anwar, dialogue development officer at Blackburn Cathedral, said: “You don’t need to be an expert in history to be a good citizen.”

It's a good pub quizz..I failed the sample questions. My Ukrainian wife passed it. She found it rather odd though when she had to answer questions such as what percentage of the population of Birmingham speak urdu.
Sorry but it is definately weighted in favour of the muslim community..Try some of the sample questions yourself and see...The test is nothing to do with living in the UK as you will see

There are 75 million people in this country, a sizable proportion of them from alien cultures, some of which despise us and our way of like. Would it be too much to ask that we be allowed to stop any further immigration here until the taxpayers of this country have been asked if they want to continue to support so many of them? Many people came here to freeload and take advantage of a society which has been built through generations of sacrifice, and we would be betraying our ancestors if we didn't at least have a referendum on continued immigration.

These tests are a joke. I wonder how many Brits living in Spain would be able to answer even the most basic questions about Spanish history, culture, or language. In a sense though it's not knowledge that matters, it's attitude, and whether or not people are willing to engage with society, contribute, and follow the law of the land. Those principles should also apply to non-immigrants by the way.
I am totally indifferent as to whether the woman in the picture wears a veil or not, it's her business. When I've asked Muslim women why they wear a veil they all say that it's their choice, and in some cases their husbands would actually rather they didn't. I follow the adage of judging people by their actions rather than their appearance, and I have yet to find a veiled woman who was anything other than very polite. I make no assumption as to whether or not she is 'oppressed' as I have no real way of knowing, just as I cannot really know with any woman whom I do not know personally.

Let's face it they only want to come and produce as many kids as they can.More kids more benefits. They will never work, who in their right mind is going to give somebody a job when you cannot even see their face.
More kids more of a drain on U/K resources schools and the NHS.
If they wanted to be with their husband that much, HE would go and live with wife in Pakistan.
But they don't have a decent health service. or decent schools, and they don't get large government benefits either.
Still at the rate they produce kids and more and more try to get into the country, in a few years we will also be as bad as Pakistan

Britain currently issues a handbook to anyone applying for citizenship that explains: the human rights act & how to apply for benefits!!!!????

Continuing in this helpful vein, foreigners can also apply to take the driving theory test in no less than 19 different languages??? Due to be changed soon but none the less!

None of these things reinforce what it is to be British..the very thing they are applying to be.

Apply for citizenship in France & you have to be able to speak & understand the language to the level of a 15yr old French native. You also have to have proof of having a job to go to. Basically you're expected to embrace being French, not a difficult concept really. I suspect Tony Blair tried to settle there & was refused so we got him!

Is it any wonder this country is over subscribed & attracting the wrong sort of would be 'citizens', cheers Labour!

And
Do you want to import a culture, the holy book of which insists on it's adherents overthrowing our society and practicing morale, economic and if necessary violent 'jihad'?
And
Do you want to see millions of foreigners in this country paid by the British taxpayer to stay at home and breed because they cannot speak our language?
And
Do you want to see women forced to wear a cloth bag over their head because their culture tells them our men will rape them due to being overwhelmed by their beauty?
And
Do you want this country to be a majority muslim one within 40 years?

Most BRITISH people would say NO.

Perhaps politicians should listen to BRITISH people for a change, since it is us who pay their huge salaries.

i think a part of the new test should be how to post sane, literate posts on the LET that do not reek of crass racism and ignorance. There is clearly a desperate need for such skills in Lancashire.

AMR: I'm hoping that you haven't fallen into the trap used by islamists where they trick the less gifted into believing their theopolitical movement is a RACE. I'm sure you aren't that ignorant or crass though.

Just done the sample test in 1 min 20 secs. If anyone fails that, I don't understand how they found their way here. It is insultingly simple!
