Immigrants hoping to settle in Britain will be quizzed on queuing etiquette under Government plans, the Daily Mirror reports.

The standard practice of forming a line will be part of the citizenship test migrants must pass to secure a British passport.

While the idea may sound like a joke, ministers insist it is a serious part of coaching foreigners on the British way of life.

Immigration minister Phil Woolas confirmed the plan, saying:

“The simple act of taking one’s turn is one of the things that holds our country together.

“It is very important that newcomers take their place in queues whether it is for a bus or a cup of tea.”

Immigrants create tension by barging to the front of queues, common practice in less wealthy countries, ministers claim.

Are immigrants bad mannered ‘queue jumpers’ as the Ministers claim?
