ITV: Immigration rules are "destroying" family


'A woman from Welburn in North Yorkshire, who has lived in the region for more than 30 years, is being forced to take a test in order to become a British citizen.

'Glenda Hyde was born in America but was adopted by a British couple and brought to the UK in 1974.

'Glenda was told that because her parents didn't register her when she was a child, she has to go through the naturalisation process. That involves taking a 'Life in the UK' test to prove her right to live in this country. She says it has taken her months to revise for the 45 minute test, which includes multiple choice questions. '

'Here are some examples of the kinds of questions Glenda has been trying to memorise:

'Great Britain was created in: a) 1677 b) 1687 c) 1697 d) 1707'

(In fact Great Britain, the island off the coast of Europe, was 'created' by the flooding of the Channel 200k-400k years ago. What a strange question!).
