  • - Hi, we're Joel and Lia. - And today, we're going

  • to be taking a British citizenship test

  • to see how British we really are.

  • (scatting)

  • - I'm fairly confident that we don't know a huge amount

  • about technical things about the UK.

  • - Or historical dates. - Or historical dates.

  • - Because it's the sort of stuff you learn at school

  • and then you forget. - Yeah.

  • - Okay, let's kick it off: here's the first question.

  • Who lives at number 10 Downing Street?

  • The Prime Minister, or the Queen?

  • - Prime Minister. - Prime Minister.

  • (ding) Next question. - Alright.

  • So far, we're getting into the UK. (laughter)

  • - How many times have the Olympic games

  • been hosted in the UK? - I think two?

  • - Oh, it's been three. (ding) - 1908, 1948, and 2012.

  • - I only remember 2012. - Me too, probably because

  • that's when we were alive. - Oh yeah.

  • (laughter) That's when we were alive.

  • - That's the dumbest thing you've ever said.

  • I love when you come out with dumb things,

  • like "Do you remember the 1908...

  • - 1908.. - 1908 Olympics?

  • - Oh, well I wasn't born. - You were not here.

  • - King Henry VIII's daughter Mary was known as

  • Mary the Terrible, or Bloody Mary?

  • Well, actually, it's probably Bloody Mary,

  • but that's just cause who's called Mary the Terrible?

  • - (laughter) Who's called Mary, the Terrible Mary?

  • Bloody Mary, is that where the drink came from?

  • - Yeah, I think so. - Is a bloody Mary

  • tomato juice and vodka? - I think so.

  • How old do you need to be to get into betting shops,

  • or gambling clubs? - 21 or 18.

  • - So it says 16, 18, 20, or 21.

  • - How old do you have to be to get into a gambling...

  • - 21! - 21.

  • - Yeah, what would you say? - I'd say 21, I think.

  • - Okay. (ding) - 18!

  • - 18, you have to be... - You have to be 18

  • to get into a betting shop, that's bad.

  • - Oh that's awful, isn't it? - Alcohol, I think,

  • is perfectly fine at 18, but betting and gambling?

  • 18-year-olds are thick as sh**. (laughter)

  • - Okay, what did the Bill of Rights confirm in 1689?

  • - I remember learning about this in school.

  • In the olden days, the king or queen would rule the country,

  • but obviously now that doesn't happen:

  • it's the prime minister who does it.

  • So maybe the Bill of Rights was like, "The prime minister

  • "has more power than the queen or king."

  • - More power, or like, it's...

  • - I think they make rules, like the queen

  • doesn't sit down and make rules to say,

  • "This isn't allowed, this is," but she does sort of...

  • oversees it. - Correct! (ding)

  • - Also, can I just say though, - Yeah.

  • - With the freedom of speech thing, Americans always say

  • that, "Oh America's the greatest country in the world

  • "cause we've got freedom of speech," and I'm like,

  • "But everywhere has free speech."

  • Okay, not everywhere, but like, the UK has

  • freedom of speech, Australia has free speech...

  • I just never understand like, why they think

  • they're the only country with freedom of speech.

  • - You're not. - You're not.

  • - So, that's...there you are!

  • What was the estimated population of the

  • British empire during the Victorian period?

  • More than 300 million people, 400 million,

  • 450 million, or 500 million people?

  • - Oh, the British Empire, so that would include

  • - Everywhere that they've, yeah.

  • I say, 450... - 400.

  • (groaning) What's 50 million? - Should we go 400 then?

  • - Oh, you got it right, 400 million!

  • - I'm so getting into this country!

  • So, does Britain have a written constitution?

  • What the hell is a constitution?

  • - Let's say yes. - No!

  • The British constitution is not written down

  • in any single document. - And therefore,

  • it's described as unwritten; this is because the UK,

  • unlike America or France, has never had a revolution

  • which led permanently to a totally new system of government.

  • That makes sense! - Right!

  • - Cause there's never been like, an uprising.

  • We're just so chilled out that we're just like,

  • "Yeah." - "Yeah, that's just

  • "the way it is." (laughter) That's hilarious!

  • - That's so funny. - Great, well!

  • - Learned something new there.

  • - Yeah, we learned something new.

  • - Which of the following countries was not part of

  • the Allied Powers during the first World War?

  • So who wasn't on our side? - Who wasn't on our team.

  • So Japan, Serbia, Bulgaria, or France.

  • - Oh my God, it must've been like ten years ago

  • that I've learned all of this. - Same.

  • But is there a difference between

  • the first World War and the second World War?

  • - So I'll guess, Japan?

  • No, they were on our side. - They were on our side.

  • - Japan loved us. - Japan loved us.

  • - Bulgaria? What is Bulgaria...or Serbia?

  • - Should we say that Serbia, well, Serbia

  • might not have been on our side.

  • (groaning) Bulgaria! - I knew it!

  • - You knew it! - I knew it!

  • - You knew we couldn't trust them.

  • (laughter) Never trust a Bulgarian.

  • (laughter) Just kidding, just kidding.

  • - Last question: When did the first World War finish?

  • - Well, ten PM on a Tuesday! (laughter)

  • - Or, was it my beans on toast that night?

  • I remember it vividly; it was a Wednesday

  • and I just got my feet up. (laughter)

  • 12 AM, oh there's actually timing!

  • - So there's actually times. - Right.

  • At 12 AM the 13th of February 1918.

  • (ding) Damn it! - I thought I was so right.

  • - It was the morning, 11 AM on November 1918.

  • - That's us doing it. - I think we did really well.

  • - A British citizenship test. - See, we're fully British,

  • pretty much, we know a lot about the UK.

  • - I'd be interested to see if you know,

  • people on the street know the answers to these questions.

  • - Oh definitely, I bet most people don't.

  • - Yeah, or I bet a lot of students,

  • kids that are studying history right now

  • will be like, "Yup, I know the answer to that!"

  • - Geeks, yeah. - Oh, no!

  • Geeks, I didn't know all of those questions

  • when I was like, fourteen. - Yeah.

  • - Been like, "Pow pow pow," GCSE history.

  • - Yeah, that's because you were a geek at school.

  • (laughter) All right then. - All right.

  • You wouldn't know it, but... - Of course.

  • - She's not just a pretty face.

  • - Okay guys, let us know if you got any of those right,

  • if you were playing along at the same time.

  • - Yeah, and let us if you know any useless facts

  • about the UK that you think we should know,

  • because I love that. - Oh I love useless facts.

  • Fun one about America: apparently Kinder chocolate

  • used to be banned. - Yeah.

  • - So you can buy a gun, you can't buy Kinder.

  • - Can't buy Kinder. - Can't buy a Kinder egg.

  • So, I don't know how that weighs up with me.

  • - America! - Yes! (laughter)

  • Okay, thank you for watching this video.

  • Remember to comment, Joel's about to crack up.

  • - Subscribe... - Do all the things.

  • - If you liked this video, we did too.

  • That's what I just wanted to add from the other day.

  • - Also, we have a platform on Coffee,

  • if you want to buy us a coffee.

  • - Yup, it's a one-off donation thing

  • where if you want to buy us a coffee,

  • you can just send us a little donation.

  • It helps towards supporting us and this channel,

  • so we can make more quality content like this.

  • - We might send you a picture of us having a coffee.

  • - I thought you were going to say something different.

  • - Having a coffee? - Like a nude or something.

  • - No, God no! - We might send you

  • a picture of us naked. - No!

  • We might send you a picture of us,

  • like drinking champagne or coffee.

  • - Yeah, we might use it for champagne, not coffee,

  • so as long as you're okay with that...

  • - Bye guys! - Bye!

- Hi, we're Joel and Lia. - And today, we're going
