    My mother took the citizenship test not too long ago and passed with flying colors..... Let's just put it this way, if she can pass the test, then anybody with 2 good working eyes and a right hand can pass it.

    Considering the disregard for the UK he's displayed, whilst not being here (kinda like Connery and The SNP in Scotland), I find him to talk about the goings on in Britain in the same way these talk shows speak about US politics.
    Scripted soundbites by cunts unwilling/unable to speak objectively if it conflicts with their network agenda.
    Why not ask him about the EU project's evolution and why The UK left?

    Perfect analogy. This coming from someone who dated women who had vomited (not right after they did, though). I hate to admit, more than once. Sometimes they're so pretty or so nice, you just won't let a little bit of vomit get in your way. After a good wash, it's almost as if they never had vomited. Too bad this won't be the case for the United States. This vomit you're in will take centuries to clean up, if ever. That's why I'm certain that the US will nuke the whole planet when they inevitably lose their status as the world's sole superpower.

    This is why some of us are so against illegal immigration. It's a slap in the face to people who have waited for decades or longer who went through the proper- albeit extremely slow- process of becoming a citizen legally.

    The Jason Bourne joke about being able to "live and work anywhere" was brilliant! I wonder if the audience is required not to laugh for the sake of sticking to time. How would that have gone over on a British talk show like Graham Norton, where the audience does react more normally?

    He is a left wing leftist and now he has citizenship. How a person who doesn't share american values could get citizenship. Such things were not possible back in the good old days of McCarthyism. America is killing itself.
