    If you are a bikini model and marry a rich man, even if you have broken the rules by working while being in the country with a tourist visa, you will get your citizenship in record time without having to move a finger. If you are a genius like John Oliver you will have to wait for about ten years and take a test . I mean, who would want to grant citizenship to a successful genius so easily..

      @bssni touir Right. Except that John Oliver is fake all over. All he is concerned about (and able to) is striking a pose for maximum self-gratifying effect. How often have I cried in utter despair in the middle of the night: Jon Stewart, come back! His wit, intelligence, sincere concern and insightful interviews are unsurpassed to this day, and will remain so, I am afraid.

    Why would a Brit want to be an American citizen? Let's see; John Oliver - rich guy - more tax cheats available in US - and he can afford private health care. Okay. Got it. I'm guessing the average Brit is okay with losing another rich git.

      @John King And yet he retained his British citizenship (Don't need to research that. He said it himself). On the political thing; I guess he prefers the US style of "preselected before they're elected" system in the US. Different way of keeping rich people in power, but no less effective. At least it's different rich people. Ones that have voted in tax cuts for themselves and their campaign donors that he can now seriously benefit from.

      John is married to an American war veteran doctor and his children are American, so maybe if you do a little bit of research you might understand why. Also John does not like the idea of a monarchy or un-elected parliaments.
