Under the Radar

With all the headlines referring to Article 50 and what the (possible) ramifications could be, this piece has almost slipped in unnoticed.

It centres on the much maligned Citizens United Newcomer's Test which will be part of the process to gain British nationality.  The procedure itself will not change and it remains both a written (multiple choice) and oral examination but due to the back log of applicants, there will soon be a "fast track" route.

To jump the queue all you will need to do is is "sponsor" a piece of the famous white cliffs of Dover and pledge to keep it maintained with an at least annual whitewash.  Tranches of the cliff are allocated on a "first come first served" basis as the upper levels are in high demand and people are already cashing in on this by "selling" their plots on eBay for hundreds of pounds.

You can choose to DIY or employ professionals (already ex-Eastern bloc crews have been advertising their services at cut price rates) but proof of completion will be required every year.  Failure to keep the chalky cliffs to a certain standard of whiteness could result in the cancellation of nationality and in extreme cases, deportation.
