White Card

“Look at all these questions.” Ralph stared in dismay at the multiple choice questionnaire. “All I want to do is live here for a few years while I write up the New New Testament.”

“That’s Britain in the noughts for you old son.” Jasfoup patted the angel’s back. “You can’t be an illegal immigrant any more. You have to be a valuable contributing member of society and pay your taxes.”

The angel scowled. “What about you then? Did you take this British Citizenship test?”

“Of course not.” The demon polished his nails on his lapel. “I’ve lived here since 1489.”
