Hello.

Not sure how you can be expatriated when you didnt live there in the first place but congrats on the brit passport.

On the second page of your new passport it will say that it obligatory to support Everton...the best football team in the Premiership.

so I'd read that new GB passports were going to have biometric data in them but I hadn't read about all these other changes....

actually did live there.. in the late 70's that is the 1970's !!
in norfolk to be precise. not proud of it -- no offense.

anyhow, scouring the 2nd page of the passport it says nothing about a team called Everton.. are they any good?

I do not think the USCIS take any notice of that. I was thinking of lodging a complaint myself to HM. When you were issued with your passport you should have had an application form to join Either Stockport County or Plymouth Argyles Supporters Club then it is not valid and you will not be allowed to enter the Counties of Lancs or Devon.

Did you have to do the English test to get your citizenship?

And no, Everton aren't any good

spent many a good night with 'norfolk mild' in the glass... which my local boozer served for about 30p / pint back then..

Everton.. sorry don't know a team called that...

now Charlton.. there's a team that's on the rise in the premiership...

If you bought beer for 30p a pint you have to be retired or close to it. Am I right or wrong?
